Count on Las Vegas flower shops for reliable flower delivery. There's no safer bet in Sin City.
Next to New York City, Las Vegas Nevada, nicknamed "Sin City", is probably one of the most well known cities in the world. A late bloomer, Las Vegas wasn’t established until 1905. The city that bills itself as the "Entertainment Capital of the World" quickly started its meteoric climb to success as a tourist hot spot with the legalization of gambling in 1931. In its early days, the Las Vegas gaming industry had strong ties to the mob with such notorious figures as Bugsy Siegel and other organized crime families funding the operations and pocketing large profits. It is estimated that the casinos make a combined total of over $900 million each year. There are close to 80 casinos along the Las Vegas strip and in the surrounding areas making the industry a rather competitive one.
Another line of business with steep competition is the Las Vegas flower industry. In addition to being the "Entertainment Capital of the World", Las Vegas has also been billed as the "Wedding Capital of the World" with close to 120,000 weddings performed in the city each year. Just as a wedding cannot take place without a bride and groom, there are other wedding mainstays as well - where there are weddings, there are flowers, and Las Vegas florists as well as Vegas flowers wholesalers are in constant competition to dominate the business. While there are enough weddings in Vegas each year to keep all of the Vegas florists in business, most Las Vegas flower Shops still actively seek out opportunities to affiliate themselves with the many wedding chapels in the area hoping to become a sole supplier, or at the very least be one of the Las Vegas florists that the chapel recommends to couples. Many business savvy chapel owners have created further opportunities for themselves by establishing their very own flower shops right inside their chapels, effectively cutting the other Las Vegas florists out of the market and significantly increasing their own profits.
Another area that Las Vegas florists strive to become affiliated with is the hotel resorts. Many of these, especially the high end ones, have beautifully extravagant flower arrangements in their lobbies as well as fresh flowers in their guest rooms. Given the number of hotel rooms in Vegas, it’s no wonder the Las Vegas flower industry players are desperate to establish relationships with the larger chains. Whereas the casinos need little more than their neon lights to generate business, a florist in Las Vegas needs to constantly work at networking to keep their businesses growing, making it a competitive industry indeed.

Science, or para-science, tells us that geraniums bloom better if they are spoken to.
But a kind word every now and then is really quite enough.
Too much attention, like too much feeding, and weeding and hoeing,
inhibits and embarrasses them.
- Victoria Glendinning
Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle ...
a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl.
And the anticipation nurtures our dream.
