You don't have to pay with gold to get reliable flower delivery from Sacramento florists.
It is said that the city of Sacramento got its name from a writer who accompanied Spanish Explorer Gabriel Moraga's expedition to the area in the 1800's. He was so in awe of the surrounding beauty of the land that he wrote "Es Como El Sagrado Sacramento", which translates to "This is like the holy sacrament".
Old Sacramento features Sutters Fort and is the oldest part of the city. The streets have been restored to maintain their cobblestone charm and some of the buildings date back to the mid 1800's making this a must see for history buffs who visit the city. Sacramento offers some of the best shopping and tourists will fine everything from fine linens to local artisan crafts for sale throughout the area. The Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra is a popular tourist draw, as are the Sacramento Opera and Ballet companies.
Sacramento also happens to be the area with the largest concentration of community theaters anywhere in the state providing the opportunity to take in some unique plays one wouldn't ordinarily see in a larger setting. These community theaters provide good business for local Sacramento florists. With several curtain calls taking place on any given night, Sacramento flower shops certainly don't seem to run out of customers. 60% of all domestic flowers are grown in California so Sacramento florists tend to make more of a profit margin than if they were located in an area that isn't suitable for floriculture as they don't spend as much in transportation costs. Buying from a local Sacramento flower grower saves money both in shipping as well as in the savings they see from less wasted product. Fresh Sacramento flowers will have a longer shelf life than ones grown outside of the area. Sacramento flower designers typically establish contracts with some of the theatres and supply flower arrangements for their lobbies and therefore are frequent patrons of Sacramento flower shops.
Another area that brings in good money for select Sacramento florists is the large number of museums in the city which host several galas and fundraising events throughout the year. There are so many museums in Sacramento that the city actually has a publication called the Sacramento Museum Guide which provides the reader with a description of the areas many museums making it easier to decide which one to visit. The best way for a Sacramento florist to supply flowers for these types of event is to establish a partnership with local event planners. It's an opportunity for them earn some money outside of the traditional walk-in customer they would ordinarily serve in their Sacramento flower shops and typically will generate more money.
The California State Fair is also held in Sacramento. The three week extravaganza is estimated to bring in close to $250 million to the local economy with thousands of visitors each year. The fair has a little something for everyone including competitions for Sacramento flower growers and other agriculture areas, to singing and dancing as well as livestock. With lots of old world charm and the best of modern amenities, Sacramento is well worth considering as a vacation destination.
