Cactus Flower Partners with Universal Pictures!

So have you seen the movie trailer for "Love Happens", starring Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart? It's a new romantic drama about letting go of the past in order to embrace the possibility that love "happens" when you least expect it. And guess what Aniston's character does for a living? She's a florist!
That's why Cactus Flower was asked to partner with Universal Pictures to promote the pre-screening of "Love Happens" here in Scottsdale!


We're offering a chance to win 2 reserved seats to the pre-screening on 9/15, as well as the Cactus Flower "Love Happens" arrangement valued at $115. All you have to do is answer one simple question: What does LOVE mean to you? Submit your answer here for a chance to win!
If you don't win, you can pick up tickets to the pre-screening on September 11 at our Scottsdale Rd & Mercer Ln location and enter to win a year of flowers!

Send your Best Card Message for Free Flowers!

Not everyone is great at articulating their feelings, whether it's expressing condolences in a time of loss or telling someone how important they are in our lives. So what do you say when you don't know what to say? We'd like to help our customers with that, but first we need YOUR help.

During the month of August, we'd like to collect some clever card messages for different occasions. Each week, we'll ask for a card message for a specific occasion that can be emailed, written on our Facebook wall, or direct messaged to us on Twitter. We'll choose a message that we think is the most clever or unique and send that person an arrangement! At the end of the month, we'll compile the messages and offer them as ideas to customers as they are checking out on our website.

Since August is a big month for birthdays, we'll begin with birthday messages. Email info@cactusflower.com, post or tweet your best birthday message before August 10 and if it's our favorite, you'll get free flowers!

CactusFlower.com Now Sells....well, Cactus!


By popoular demand, CactusFlower.com is now your resource for desert cactus plants. Thanks to the wonderful world of website analytics, we have learned that people actually stumble upon our website on the quest for cactus plants . We found a local partner in Glendale, AZ, who grows his own saguaros, organ pipe cactus, barrel cactus and more - and ships them around the country via Priority Mail! We are thrilled to be sending a piece of the beautiful Sonoran Desert to the rest of the country.
We also found some great tips on growing cacti and succelents at the Valley's Desert Botanical Gardens' website. They even offer a plant hotline to answer your questions on growing desert plants!

Another Month of Great Rose Prices!


June was National Rose Month, and many of you took advantage of the lowest rose prices of the year by sending one of our three featured dozen rose arrangements. We sold a lot more roses than we expected - and we're still getting great prices from our grower - so we're rolling the June Rose Specials into July!


You have another month to take advantage of dirt-cheap pricing on dozen rose arrangements ($30!!) that won't be around again until next June. If you're loving someone today, surprise them with a traditional dozen roses, contemporary dozen roses, or roses in a re-usable wax candle vessel for only $30.

Crazy Deals on Roses this Month!

While we might sell the most roses in February, June is by far the best month to buy and give roses.

Firstly, they are in season so they look great and last long. Second, June is a romantic month and a great time to send a surprise gift to the one you love. Finally, the growers have an abundance of roses, so we get great pricing which we then pass on to you. When we say great prices, we mean well over 50% off our everyday pricing. (Our everyday price on a dozen is $65; this month they are $30!)

We're offering a new twist on a dozen roses that will last well beyond the flowers themselves. It's a wax vessel candle holder that makes a contemporary home decor piece, but we've filled it with a dozen roses and deliver it with a free votive candle. It's a gift within a gift! Check it out at CactusFlower.com here.

Roses are also our Fresh Ten feature of the month: Get a dozen wrapped roses for just $10! Fresh Ten is available for in-store pick up only, and can be found in our cooler. What a hero you will be when you bring home a dozen Cactus Flower roses for no reason at all. Click here to find a store location near you.
Go to CactusFlower.com to find all the rose specials for this month. Remember, these prices won't be back for another year!

Prom Season is Here!

Prom is just around the corner, and for the first time ever Cactus Flower is introducing a line of cutting-edge prom corsages, boutonnieres, and even body flowers (also known as flower tattoos). All of the products can be found at CactusFlower.com and ordered online for in-store pick up. You can even show your friends or prom date which corsage you want through your Facebook or MySpace account by clicking the "share" icon within the product page of our site!


The most exciting design this season is the body orchids and body daisies, which come in a set of 3. They are attached to adhesive backing meant for skin, so stick them on your back, ankle, or wrist and wear them all night long! Body flowers are a hot look that will surely be noticed, and can be worn instead of or in addition to a traditional corsage.

To view a slideshow of all our prom corsages, click on the video below:
