Florists, bakeries swamped with orders day before Valentine's Day

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

It is not surprising that St. Valentine's Day is one of the year's "harvest times" for florists. The rush starts about three days before, and once the 14th gets here, it just kind of happens and then the workload starts to decrease.

"The problem with the whole system is there was more than one dictionary", McKinley said. But she takes comfort knowing her work benefits others.

The business may reserve the right to swap out your specific flowers for "similar" flowers if the company is out of stock.

Although many desire an arrangement of all opened flowers, bouquets that have some closed buds or those that are just beginning to peek out will likely last longer than bouquets that have already bloomed. This year, he ordered about 9,600 "premium roses", characterized by their height and large head.

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. "They select everything from the type of flowers to the foliage and ribbon". If she's bold, pick the lilies.

Love is a powerful thing this time of year.

Roses will never ever get out of date. For example if you google a local shop, like Hazel's Flowers.


According to Humphrey, the holiday actually starts back in December, when most florists need to have their orders in so the growers can prepare shipments. This year that number may stay the same percentage wise, but it will most likely go up in amount. If you know which lip balm she's always reaching for or losing, throw that Burts Bee's in the cart. Make the cut at an angle so the stem won't sit flat on the bottom of the vase, which wouldn't let in as much water.

On Valentine's Day, being late rather than sorry is the motto to follow.

It is pretty hectic the entire week leading up to Valentine's Day. Sometimes snuggling up on the couch with your favorite takeout meal or laughing over your attempt at a college homemade meal can be more memorable than that mediocre pasta you waited an hour for.

(Cottone) "Known to symbolize faithfulness and true devotion this flower will show your lover that you're in it for the long haul". Every time she hears one of the songs, she'll think of you.

"Shopping can certainly get pricey during the Hallmark holiday and if your budget permits, I certainly suggest going all out on something personal that your significant other would never buy for themselves", said Sara Skirboll, shopping and trends expert for RetailMeNot. Tickets will allow you to share a new experience that you will enjoy together.

Almost every minute of Valentine's Day is accounted for, a plan Baker started working on weeks ago. "These express love at first sight and enchantment".
