Brad Parker: Hi! I am Brad Parker of MyFlorist in McLean, Virginia. Today we are going to discuss flowers for Mother's Day. Particularly, how we can assist you in getting the best result while ordering flowers for Mother's Day. Topics that we are going to cover are first, proper care and handling the flowers. Then we are going to share with you some basic design tips, if you choose to want to design your own flowers. We will also discuss what are appropriate designs for Mother's day, what is the properly delivery date for Mother's day, how much you should expect to spend for Mother's day and also, why flowers are such an excellent choice for Mother's Day. Flowers truly are a special way, nature's way if you will, to convey our most intimate and important emotions and expressions, emotions of love, of gratitude, of respect, of caring. So I encourage you to indulge in flowers. I think you will always get a wonderful result. I would like to just take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself and MyFlorist. MyFlorist was started by myself and my wife Penha, 20 years ago. We used to serve the entire Washington D.
C. metro area and I think with distinction. We have been recognized as the top 100 florists in the nation for more than 10 years. Mother's Day is something we have been doing for a long time. We have seen it all, done it all. It will be my pleasure to take a few minutes to help you with the ins and outs of ordering flowers on this major flower holiday.
