Best wishes on Valentine's Day


During their peak Valentine's Day times Flowers by George can have up to eight delivery vehicles out to deliver their bouquets of flowers.

"But it's our biggest day of the year".

Flowers are typically the go-to gift when it comes to making your loved one happy on Valentine's Day.

At Toni's, with about a dozen full-time employees including three on deliveries, Valentine's Day is a well-rehearsed ballet of flowers. With the holiday fast approaching, flower shops are gearing up for a busy week.

"We have piles more flowers come in than we would on an average day", designer Dawn Hirst said.

Last year, AA Cargo said it also shipped more than 10 million pounds of flowers out of Amsterdam (AMS) into the United States.

Humphrey and Krauss, who have both been in the floral business close to 40 years say that, overall, there haven't been many changes to the Valentine's season. however, one major shift is the rise of the internet.

"We have ensured delivery at the speed of "love-at-first-sight", said Frank Diaz, global marketing manager of UPS Americas Region.

Generally speaking, most people aren't prepared and tomorrow will be insane for the florist.

Whether it's a single rose or a $500 arrangement, the team at The Little Green Frog said they could cater to everyone's needs.

Ordering flowers for the big day is a delicate balance of not ordering too many and not running out. "We don't have that much coming from California so didn't really affect us".

"Delivering flowers is always quite nice on Valentine's Day". US consumers will spend an estimated $19.6 billion, up from $18.2 billion a year ago, on gifts for Valentines Day.

There is also the work of delivering the flowers, which requires many more drivers than usual, as well. "We recruit a lot of family members", she said.

Anxious that Valentine's Day is going to break the bank? Create a spa-like atmosphere with low lights, candles and flower arrangements.

"Love it or hate it, Aussies will still spend an estimated half a billion dollars this Valentine's Day".

Valentine's Day is only just around the corner, but numerous arrangements will continue to be in store long thereafter for other romantic moments. Luckily, you don't have to be a florist to give them the proper care they need. There are over 100 different types of roses but the most commonly used for the romantic holiday is the modern red rose.

Meghaa Modi of Flower Box explains the trend, "I have seen two segments of people who come into buy flowers for Valentines".

We haven't Verified whether they actually last 12 months. "There's a skimming between the fees and percentage they take off of the product", Wood said.
