Beautiful Graduation Leis from AV Florist

It’s that time of year again…celebrate Dad’s and Grad’s with a fresh, funky Lei from AV Florist.Wearing a Lei on the big graduation day is a tradition that is fun, memorable and looks great in photographs. A sure way to tell the world how hard you’ve worked and that its time to celebrate! Know someone who is graduating? Show your successful graduate some love with one of these expertly designed floral Lei’s, and don’t forget Dad! Father’s day is June 19th so it’s a great idea to plan ahead and give him something cool this year. Great for honoring a Dad, Grandfather or a special man in your life, Lei’s make a colorful statement and a great decoration atop a cake or present.


This has to be the best local florist I have ever used. Sometimes you think that you have to use a big name to get big results, with Antelope Valley Florists you don’t!  They have the best customer service in the valley.  The flowers are always very fresh and the delivery is always prompt. Maricela-Lancaster

We’ve used AV Florist for years.  The flowers they provide for the front desk in our office, last for a week or longer.  They have taken the time to learn our needs, so shopping with them is always easy.Harry- Palmdale

How to Keep Flowers Fresh – Lancaster/Palmdale

Making flowers last longer.  Begin with fresh flowers.  Remove the leaves and clean the portion of the stem that will be under or near the water in a clean vase.  Clean, clear water @ room temperature is best.  Remember to change the water daily, and when you do, also recut the flower stems.  Give all flowers a fresh cut with a knife or snippers, woody stems can be pounded. Flowers normally only intake water at the bottom of their stems.  This increases water intake.  Flowers like conditions, cool, dark, no breeze, moisture.  Some types of flowers last a day, some last a couple weeks, this is nature, even though man has attempted to jump in and improve it…questions call us @888.948.6006, AV Florist

Sharing Flowers in Lancaster

Lancaster’s Best Florist Shares the Dream



The flower shop had several left over floral displays from last week. I took a few arrangements over to my favorite mexican restaurant . Lupe at Casita Lopez was thrilled when I came in with the flowers and several patrons bought flowers at a bargain price.  I met two customers. What a great way to begin a day!
