Flower Shops Blooming With Orders

Posted: Updated:

In case you forgot, Friday is Valentine's Day, 24-hours filled with love. While some crave chocolates others like the surprise of a bouquet of flowers.

But it's not just the men who are working hard as floral shops bloom with orders.

"It's a fast holiday, it's a busy holiday, but it's great when people are in a good mood." laughs Hornbacher's Floral Manager Carly Bosworth.

The ladies at Hornbacher's are busy snipping, arranging and packaging up flowers for Friday's big day. The store ordered 3,000 red roses to be prepared.

"And that's just single stems," Bosworth says,"so that's not including the bouquets, the plants the anything."

On Friday six trucks will deliver flowers and balloons all day, but with nine ladies working behind the counter they will be ready for anyone to come in for last minute gifts.

"Ladies don't buy themselves flowers very often and they should." Cindi Peterson says as she arranges another bouquet.

"Tomorrow will be absolutely crazy here, I mean this is absolutely nothing, the line will be out the door." Bosworth says.

But the workers say it's worth their time to help make your valentines day special.

"It's awesome to help these guys, because they don't have a clue what they want, so you suggest something they'll say yah yah yah that sounds good that sounds good." Peterson laughs, "that's what's fun about valentines day, because the guys don't care just so they come home with something."

"Somebody is being thought of and that's really what counts." Bosworth adds.

Hornbacher's Floral says they have put together dozens of bouquets and arrangements ready to be picked up if you forgot to place an order.
