Three times a week, delivery drivers motor more than 100 miles to source the freshest possible stems from coastal growers in Watsonville and Salinas. They then craft these carefully chosen blooms into custom arrangements or ship them in bulk to decorate weddings and other special events. The store inventory includes flowers such as daises ($5/bunch), alstroemeria ($6.50/bunch), and roses ($17+ for two dozen). Out-of-season flowers can also be acquired from as far away as Colombia, South America. Delivery is available for an additional fee.

Fresh Ideas Flower Company

For Fresh Ideas owner Derik Bakker, flowers are more than just petals and stems. “They stir something,” he explains. “It’s not a ream of paper or a T-shirt. It’s something far more personal.” That stirring is why, three times a week, Bakker’s team pilots a refrigerated truck more than 100 miles to pluck the freshest farm-grown coastal buds. Directly sourcing flowers allows Fresh Ideas to keep prices down and also increases its flexibility when filling orders. Bakker can provide hundreds of flowers in bulk to clients 50 miles away while still handcrafting small floral arrangements for locals.

The unique nature of Bakker’s business also allows for a more personal interaction with clients. Unlike larger companies that are forced to interrelate with impersonal 1-800 numbers, Fresh Ideas staffs floral specialists who go over colors with clients, offering suggestions. They can even special order out-of-season flowers from as far away as South America or the secret NASA greenhouses on the moon.

This attentiveness has made the company a popular arrangement source for area restaurants and markets, and anyone who sets foot on the grounds can see that Bakker's passion runs deep. He and his 17-year-old daughter––coincidentally named Sarah Rose––have spent the last year planting seeds by hand in their own onsite sunflower garden. He tells those who ask that they grew the blooms "the old-fashioned way"—the same way he's grown his business.

Tips

Customer service is alive and well at Fresh Ideas. Great experience from beginning to end. We were putting together an informal wedding reception for a couple at church. With the Groupon we were able to afford fresh flowers. Our color theme was purple I expected 1 or 2 options, they had a great deal more than that to choose from. The young lady that helped me listened to what I was looking for and brought out a nice selection. Not being very artistic, I went with the pre-made bouquets. They were very large and only $12.95 each. They included top quality flowers including: calla lilies, carnations, gerber daisies all in purple/white. Thank you for helping us pull together a memorable event.
