The best deals on flowers are not always found when ordering online. You can often find great discounts from local stores like Wal-Mart, Sam's Club and Costco for a quick bouquet to give away or use as a centerpiece on your dining room table. However, if you want a little more originality and you don't have time to wait for delivery, the best idea might be to check out your local florist to see what they have to offer.
Flowers, as we all know, eventually wilt and die. Florists, like other suppliers of perishable goods, don't want to throw away product and lose all their money so they will often use flowers that need to be sold soon to create beautiful bouquets they can then sell at discounted prices. This is generally the best way to pick up some last minute discount flowers. This idea is especially a great one if you are throwing a last minute dinner party and are in a rush to purchase table decorations, realizing that the look of the flowers won't matter in a couple of days after the party is over.
Buying discount flowers is also a way to immediately enjoy the beauty of a flower without having to wait days and possibly miss it. Flowers are normally the prettiest when they are fully open and in bloom. Many times it can be days after you buy flowers before they open completely, and even then sometimes they never open, leaving you with the feeling that you missed out on the best part of the display.
