Okay…okay…not quite yet. But, Labor Day is upon us which means that summertime is nearly over. And that, of course, means that it won’t be long until every consumable product in every store will soon be available in “pumpkin-spice” flavor and Halloween costume shops will begin filling in vacant strip malls on every block in town.
It wasn’t long ago that every holiday enjoyed its own special time starting a week or two after the proceeding holiday. Now back-to-school sales seem to start before the previous year is even over and we’re lucky if we can make it to Thanksgiving before we hear Bing Crosby dreaming of the white stuff.
Now, we’re not suggesting you rush out this weekend to procure the perfect tree – there will be plenty of time for that later – but we are implying that you may want to start thinking ahead to the flurry of festivities that accompany the holiday season and prepare early.
Office parties, kids’ parties, people to acknowledge, family members to remember…the list seems to multiply every year. But no matter how early stores start decking the halls, it’s easy to procrastinate and put off shopping until the last minute – when stores are crowded, lines are long, and shelves are picked over.
Why not start shopping now?
It’s never too early to begin thinking about holiday gift giving, and here at Compton’s Florist we will help make your shopping a breeze. Did you know you can order your holiday flowers as early as you’d like? You won’t even be billed until the flowers are delivered, and if you ordered from us in the past, we probably have your order on file so you can see just what you sent last time that the boss loved so much.
Let us save you valuable time and ease the Black Friday frustration by taking care of all your floral needs. Imagine being able to cross off part of your holiday shopping list before the leaves even turn colors and hit the ground! From large corporate parties to simple bud vases, we’re here to assist you with any size order. We even go beyond flowers with beautiful green plants, poinsettias, and holiday gift baskets – perfect for everyone on your list!
The holidays may not be here yet, but they’re right around the corner. Don’t let them sneak up on you this year; one phone call to your friends at Compton’s Florist (or several mouse clicks) is all it takes!
