This Sunday, May 29, we will celebrate moms. Like every year, florists will be taken by storm… Despite inflation which has caused the price of bouquets to jump. According to Franck Poncet, Chairman of the Management Board Emova Group (Monceau Fleurs, Happy, Coeur de Fleurs, Au Nom de La Rose) interviewed by Le Parisien, the overall price of flowers should increase “by 3 to 4%”. Information to be taken with caution, because some flowers are much more accessible than others. It depends on their origin and their rarity, according to the Ile-de-France daily. Conversely, the more symbolic flowers of Mother’s Day, such as peonies or roses, are unfortunately victims of the price increase.
To offer a pretty bouquet of flowers to your mom without breaking the bank, there are fortunately some tips. For example, most florists offer bunches of flowers. Choose a few to your taste and assemble them yourself for an original creation that your mother will not see anywhere else! If you insist on slipping a rose or a peony here and there, the result will be less expensive than if you opt for a mono-bouquet.
You fell for a pretty bouquet of flowers online and the price seems more than reasonable? Beware! Online stores indicate their prices excluding delivery costs. Count an additional fifteen euros according to the florist. On the subject of a possible increase in delivery prices caused by the increase in fuel prices, Armelle Baudard, general manager of Aquarelle.com, indicates that she is trying “to absorb these costs for the moment”.
