Snap Blooms' Commitment to Local Florists

Snap Blooms was founded to support local florists and help them connect with more customers to provide them with the most creative floral arrangements and the most beautiful, high-quality flowers. Before the internet, the independent florist industry was blooming. Local floral artists were able to work directly with their customers to provide unique flower arrangements for their loved ones and special occasions. Whether it was handcrafted bouquets for romantic occasions or somber funeral flowers delivery, local florists were able to provide their clients with unique flowers design at a price that allowed their businesses to thrive.

With the advent of the internet, however, things changed for local florists as consumers were able to conveniently order flowers online for delivery. Large online retailers were able to slash prices in half, edging local florists out of the competition.

We started Snap Blooms to help local florists thrive again. We make it easy for customers to order custom birthday flower arrangements, Valentine’s day bouquets, and wedding flowers online for convenient service.

Then we send the order to a local florist to handcraft a beautiful arrangement for our customers that they won’t find anywhere else. This allows our local florists to make a fair and sustainable profit margin from their floral arrangements so they can continue to provide the best service. Since we handle the marketing for our dedicated and creative florists, they can keep their prices affordable. This makes it easier for them to compete with online flower delivery companies without sacrificing quality or delivery. Our local florists are proud to provide our customers with floral designs handcrafted with love. We take care of connecting them with customers who are grateful for their commitment to quality.
We are passionately committed to making everyone’s floral dreams come true. Whether you are a customer looking for anniversary flowers delivery for your loved one, or you dream of becoming the next big name in wedding flower design, we are here for you every step of the way.

Our Commitment to Floral Design Education

It is our vision to create and support a vibrant community of flower artists. We know it’s not enough just to support our amazing team of local florists. We need to invest in the next generation of talented floral designers too.

That is just one reason we created our floral design scholarship program. We are committed to helping four students a year reach their flower design goals. Each scholarship is worth $500 and will be awarded twice a year--two in the spring and two in the fall. We are honored to be a part of your journey to joining the wonderful community of talented floral design artists and the hardworking farmers that grow beautiful flowers for our industry.

Our Story, A Story of Passion

Before creating Snap Blooms, our founders developed their passion for floral design in their own local florist shop in Virginia. They know firsthand the difficulties of running a flower shop and working hard to make ends meet especially while competing with major online retailers.

That is why they launched Snap Blooms--to restore balance in the market and support local florists. Now the owners of Snap Bloom are ready to take their commitment to the floral design community one step further with their bi-annual scholarship program to support the industry’s rising talent.

Paying It Forward

Local florists are the lifeblood of our business. Without their services, there would be no one to fulfill the online orders our clients rely on to make every occasion extra special. Our founders also know that they wouldn’t be where they are today without the community’s support and their mentors in the industry.

That is why we are committed to paying it forward and helping aspiring designers nurture their talents with our bi-annual scholarships. It is our goal to give back to the community and nourish more successful independent floral designers. We hope our small contribution to the education of others will help strengthen the community and make your floral design dreams come true.

The Difference Floral Design Can Make

As an aspiring floral designer, you know how important flowers are to the lives of your clients. Whether it is the birth of a child or the death of a loved one, flowers bring a touch of refreshing natural beauty to all of the most important events in our lives. Having the right floral designer with the best quality flowers can bring this magic to the next level. If you are ready for a career in floral design, we are prepared to help. Apply for our scholarship today.

We look forward to learning more about your commitment to bringing happiness to the lives of others.

The Snap Blooms Difference

We are committed to the success of our local florists. It can be challenging for local florists to connect with clients, manage online services, and get the right digital marketing they need to compete with large online flower retailers. We help them achieve all of that so they can focus on providing the best customer service experience.

Customers want the high-quality flowers and beautiful designs that only local florists can deliver, but they often need the convenience and affordability of an online retailer. We make it easy for our customers to get both. When we help our florists connect with customers, they can focus on floral design. Since they don’t have to worry about finding new customers, they save money on marketing, savings which they can pass on to our customers. Everyone wins. With our scholarship program, we are committed to supporting the best rising talent in the industry.

We are the sister company to Hana Blooms, a technology company that provides point-of-sale service to florists.
