Advocates for a work from home culture could never have predicted the sudden, widespread adoption of remote working norms we’ve adopted in 2020. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, more Portland households have one or more family members working or attending school from home than ever before.
Thankfully, this comes at a time in history when ordering the things we need for a remote work environment are available online with quick, local delivery. For our team, the major difference has been a shift from schools and office buildings to at-home flower deliveries.
Why Flower Online Delivery to Homes is Growing
Floral delivery is more popular now than ever before. Traditionally, our local delivery services were mostly conscripted for daytime surprises — such as Valentine’s Day or an anniversary celebration — or reserved for sending a message of love or support across great distances.
In either case, most flower deliveries prior to 2020 were for showing love or care when an in-person visit wasn’t optimal. Well, during the pandemic, the reason for a lack of in-person connections for support has never been greater.
For this reason alone, flower deliveries are up across the country. After all, it can be tough to show support, love, or care for those we’re connected with when close proximity is potentially harmful instead of helpful. Plus, innovations in online ordering make sending the message you’re looking to deliver from a distance with flowers easier to communicate than ever before.
If flowers are the perfect gift for an upcoming occasion, here’s why you should consider Nancy’s Floral in Portland to handle delivering the perfect flowers for the day. Shop our local selection here and feel free to contact us for more information!
Avoid In-Person Visits
While the urge to get out-and-about is pretty prominent in most of us, the bulk of our excursions out should still be limited to essential functions as much as possible. In fact, even after the major concerns over the virus have subsided, it’s likely that Americans’ shopping habits will be forever altered to favor digital options.
At Nancy’s, we’re happy to offer online floral ordering for local Portland delivery for those that want to avoid an in-person visit. Thanks to our great pictures and descriptions, you can ensure that the flowers you order will be the right size and style for the occasion. If you choose to visit our recently re-opened showroom in-person, you’re still eligible for delivery services if you’d rather have us ensure the arrangement makes it to the destination safely.
Find Inspiration or Shop By Category
Over the years, we’ve seen countless customers stumble in and begin browsing while looking (and likely feeling) totally overwhelmed. In-store, we’ve learned to identify the signs of “please help me find what I need!” in our customers and offer them suggestions to find the perfect arrangement for their needs.
While you may imagine that’s impossible to achieve online, we’ve actually found the opposite to be true. If you’re looking for a certain theme, you can easily browse complete arrangements in our online gallery to find the perfect thing or a great starting point. Even easier still, you can browse by occasion for the tried-and-true options our in-store team has recommended for years!
Flowers Freshen the Home
When we think about the recipient of your floral arrangement, the benefits of at-home delivery become even more pronounced. With so many of us feeling cabin fever from the months we’ve spent cooped up in our homes more than ever before, a pop of freshness can liven up the space like nothing else.
Regardless of the occasion — or for no particular reason — a fresh floral arrangement brings a fresh feeling accompanied by a lovely pop of color. But, best of all, flowers have a near-magical ability to make us feel connected over any distance. We’ve frequently heard from our customers that they can just feel the love and care that delivered these flowers to their doorstep.
