Navigating Floral Supply Chain Woes

The Perfect Recipe for Efficiency

By Ryan O'Neil

If you're a florist, you're no stranger to the delicate dance of creating the perfect floral recipe. You meticulously select each bloom, its color, and place in the arrangement. You envision how it'll all come together and - voila - it’s pure magic. But, there's a hitch you didn’t count on: your wholesaler is out of that key flower you had designed everything around.

Sound familiar? If you nodded, then you, my friend, have felt the pain of the post-COVID floral supply chain issues.

The aftermath of COVID-19 brought unprecedented disruptions to the floral industry. Wholesalers experienced stock shortages, delays, and, sometimes, entire seasons missed. The once predictable availability of flowers became a game of chance. This left many florists scrambling, revising their floral recipes at the last minute, trying to maintain the vision they initially created for their clients.

Now, think about it...

What if there was a way to swap out those missing flowers across your entire event or set of events with a simple click? A way to replace the ingredient without the need to sift through each individual recipe, saving you hours of tedious adjustments. Imagine your shopping lists, recipe sheets, and event designs all automatically updated with the new flower, and you only had to change it in one place.

Sounds like a dream, right?

Here's the thing - it's not a dream. We've turned it into a reality. We understand that your time is valuable, and your creative process is essential. So, we are excited to introduce our new feature that will revolutionize your design process.
