Philadelphia's most creative floral studio

Valentine's Day 2016

Here at Sullivan Owen we know there's a lot of pressure around Valentine's Day and we want you to know we're here to help. While we can't tell you if it's the right time to sign that card with "Love" or if you should go away somewhere with a champagne glass shaped hot tub because it's a holiday weekend,  we can send your sweetheart exactly the right flower arrangement-leaving you one less thing to worry about!

We don't know if he or she is "The One" but we do know flowers and everyone's hands down, most favorite color palette that we've ever, ever done is "Champagne" so of course it's back and ready to go for 2016. In addition to the classic "Champagne" palette, we're introducing "Sangria". The "Sangria" palette is a blend of warm peach and blush tones with wine and berry accents. It was tremendously popular last year as a secret menu item so this year we're just putting it out there. A huge variety of vase options and prices are available.

If you're the sweetheart in question hoping we'll deliver you the flowers you really want, make sure your sweetie knows what to get you for Valentine’s by saving the image below and emailing it or use the share button to tweet, post or instagram your favorite palette to them.

Designs start at $100 and delivery is available all around Philly, the surrounding suburbs, and even parts of New Jersey and Delaware. Delivery on Friday February 12 is preferred! Sunday delivery is available but we’re unable to offer times for delivery and someone must be home to receive the flowers so we think Friday might be easier for everyone and kicks off the Valentine’s Day weekend! Make sure to contact us ASAP at 215 964 9790; we sold out early last year and expect to sell out again this year!

No Dozen Roses Here

We know that both you and your special someone are more creative, more interesting and more special than a dozen roses with baby's breath. That's why we DON'T offer that design. When you call Sullivan Owen for your Valentine's Day flowers, you want something that stands out from the line up of basic and boring. So while we can still send red roses for you, we prefer them to be dark, moody and paired with purple and plum tones. Not a wisp of baby's breath in sight!

If your special someone is into another color all together, we've got that covered as well in both sophisticated shades of cream, peach and blush or bold and bright pink. Call us at 215-964-9790 to get your order placed today as we expect to sell out of flowers this year!

The studio is open from 9AM-7PM today for all you last minute cupids to pick up some last minute bouquets or readymade designs.

While we're between delivery runs I wanted to say a quick Happy Valentine's Day to my husband T.O.

These photos by Lorraine Daley are from our wedding and since our wedding is what kicked off my floral career, I thought I'd share my bridal bouquet as well. I love making bridal bouquets and while I get to make all kinds  these days, I still love looking at this one!

Valentine's Day 2011

Well, we’re wrapping up our first Valentine’s Day and I have to say it was an amazing success. I truly loved all the designs we sent out today and I hope the lucky recipients did as well.  We had requests for all kinds of color palettes from V-Day red to bright yellow so the studio was literally bursting with gorgeous blooms and the scent was pretty amazing according to the guys that opted to come in and pick up their orders. The stars of the show today were definitely the Japanese sweet pea which smells so good, you want to eat it. There’s some in the arrangement below in an electric pinky-red. With fresh water and our elixir they should last 2 weeks or more.  We send out every order with our Cut Flower Elixir and care instructions on the bottle to help you keep the flowers looking good for as long as possible.

A new contest was created today as well, we got absolutely the sweetest card message from JB for RS and decided each holiday one winner who makes us melt with his or her card message will get their order upgraded as a surprise. I can’t wait for the next big holiday, though I guess Easter doesn’t really lend itself to mushy messages …

Here’s one of the highlights of today, a stunning explosion of pinks with dark accents.  I LOVED making this arrangement and I know the lucky lady who got it loves it too.

Happy Valentine’s Day all!
