Brad Parker: Hi! My name is Brad Parker and my company is MyFlorist and we are located in McLean, Virginia.
Today, we want to talk about how to buy the perfect floral arrangement for Valentine's Day. What we are going cover is, how to choose the right florist; how to choose the right flower and arrangement; how to get the best quality, and how to get the best performance and experience with your Valentine's Day flowers.
Before we get going, let me say just a little bit about myself and MyFlorist. My wife and I started the company in 1989 and in that time we have grown to be a top one hundred florist nationally out of 25,000 florists in this country; and I think our success is because we have certain philosophical points that are important to us. We carry lots of flowers and we give our designers almost unlimited options to work with. Our designers are amongst the best in the industry. They are truly artisans and we want them to make each work a unique custom-made design.
So that's a little bit about us. Let's get going. What we are going to talk about right now is how to find the right retail florist.
