People often ask what our busiest time of the year is. Hands down it is Valentine’s Week. Our staff of 25 increases to a staff of over 60 in order to process flowers, answer phones, make arrangements (nearly 1500 the week of Valentine’s) and deliver them all to happy sweethearts.
It takes a lot of coordination, planning and hard work to make all of this happen. We have an amazing staff here at Dandelions who are dedicated to creating an experience for each person who places their trust with us when they order flowers in Eugene as well as for the recipient who is gifted flowers.
In order to store such a quantity of flowers we bring in a refrigerated semi-truck the week before Valentine’s. Our amazing crew who processes the flowers when they arrive and prepares them for designing works tirelessly, and often in the rainy cold, to make sure the flowers are at their best. Our design staff creates bouquets and gift packages for each order all day…often standing in one place most of the day. It’s certainly not a walk in the park to be a florist!
Our sales staff helps countless numbers of men (and women!) choose the right style for their special Valentine and our blessed delivery drives brave the elements to bring a smile to individuals around Eugene and Springfield.
Valentine’s is a special time of love and an opportunity to convey your feelings to those around you. We feel pride in working hard to make this day be special for you!
