Local florists prepare for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day can be the busiest day of the year for florists

Florists at The Fresh Flower market in Aurora put the petals to the metal as Valentine's Day approaches.

"You get the gentlemen who will get flowers for their wives and they will one or two for their little girls", Mrs Swift said. "We design our collection and determine what are the actual flower arrangements and bouquets that we'll be selling", said Brittany Graunke, CEO of Flowers For Dreams.

Now just a day away, cupid's favorite holiday is certainly her busiest of the year - with Mother's Day a more relaxing second.

"They were from out of town, and that was the destination they always liked going to", Walton said. "We are excited and ready for all of that", she said. The team will turn more than 4,000 roses into arrangements for what is one of the industry's busiest times of the year.

"I have a great staff that has been making arrangements for a long time", Brooks said. "Roses can mean love, but so can tulips". In addition to chocolate, cards and dining out, flowers - particularly roses - are among the most popular gifts.

"She'll get the roses and he can get the lures". "It's a great, lovely gift, and you know it's always a way to give out happiness on a nice holiday".

The e-tailer, which of course sells everything, has good deals for roses, with free shipping if you're a member of the Prime expedited shipping service.

UPS said it expects to transport more than 8 million pounds of flowers - and a total of 88 million blossoms - to destinations in the United States, which the integrator said was equivalent to 64 filled 767 aircraft.

“For years, UPS has helped us spread the love to our customers across the country, ensuring we receive our flower shipments on time and get them in the hands of sweethearts everywhere, ” said Galo Sanchez, executive vice president, The Elite Flower.

Even more than a week out, some online florists were not able to deliver some flowers with four days notice, for a delivery a week before Valentine's Day. Wendy Nelsen is the co-owner of the only flower shop in Lovelock.

Although once Valentine's Day is here, they are usually reminded about the amount of energy it takes to get through it.

Downtown in the 1200 block of Eighth Street at Mark Knox Flowers, General Manager Tom Williams described the flower factory the shop would become, a couple weeks after setting up the showroom of stuffed animals, sweets and gift baskets. Chantel Diehl said it was the positive reviews from FromYouFlowers.com that convinced her to order flowers from the company. Chantel paid $60.00 for the vase of flowers and had them sent to her friend in Florida for her 90th Birthday. Millennials aged 25-34 are projected to spend more than any other age bracket, with an average bill of $202.76.
