Local florists gearing up for Valentine's Day

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

Consumers in the UAE like to express their love with flowers on Valentine's Day, reveals Mastercard Love Index 2018, created by analyzing credit, debit and prepaid transactions across the past three Valentine periods (11- 14 February 2015-17). Shops like Gayety's Chocolate & Ice Cream, Evolution Artisan Confections and South Bend Chocolate Co.in Valparaiso have been filling box after box with sweet chocolate treats.

If you're willing to splurge a little more on your sweetheart, skip those giant obnoxious overpriced teddy bears and think about buying concert tickets. How about some fishing lures? While roses are the real victor for Valentine's Day, decorated arrangements are a hit as well. "Every time I was over there she had something for me to plant and I've been dealing with flowers ever since".

"We noticed some quality issues on some of the things we bought it from California", he said. She got an email response that apologized and gave her a $10 credit on a future purchase.

If you walk into Lawrence Mayer Florist the day before Valentine's day, you'll see a full staff with all hands on deck.

Sheila Bush estimates she'll be five times busier than normal on Valentine's Day.

"We have been swamped the last two days". There are over 100 different types of roses but the most commonly used for the romantic holiday is the modern red rose.

"I have no idea we order thousands - six thousand and that's just red", says Marcia Baker, Higdon florist. Store Manager James Hyatt said with no severe winter weather in Wednesday's forecast, his employees will be filling in-store orders for arrangements of seasonal bouquets and roses.

The parameters for each order were roses and tried to stay around $50. "With the holidays behind them and the winter months dragging along, consumers are looking for something to celebrate this time of year". After 35 years in the flower business, Hirst said she doesn't look forward to Valentine's Day. "We have to commit our orders for our suppliers very early in January".

Before his death, Valentine fell in love and sent her a letter signed, From Your Valentine.

Over the years, Mrs Swift has built a loyal customer basis. But not just any flower.

Despite all of the love, 53 percent of women said they would end their relationship if they didn't get anything on February 14th.

Generally speaking, most people aren't prepared and tomorrow will be insane for the florist. The record was an average of $146.84 spent in 2016, meaning a $19.7 billion boost for the economy.
