  • Best wishes on Valentine's Day

More than five floral designers were working at his shop on Tuesday to fill orders for Valentine's Day.

According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, 58 percent of American men and 16 percent of American women were projected to buy flowers for Valentine's Day 2016, spending a total of $1.9 billion.

After one day, most flowers were still in good shape, minus a droopy red rose from FTD.

Of course, it is the roses that are always flying out the door.

King says with statistics like that they have to have a plan of action. The employees of the Fresh Flower Market in Aurora design romantic displays from a delivery of more than 4,000 roses, February 7. "I want other people to know it's not all it's cracked up to be", Chantel said.

An estimated 88 million roses will be delivered Wednesday, keeping florists across the nation on their feet this Valentine's Day.

From teens to people in their 20s prefer the classic red roses, teddy bears and chocolates.

Data shows 55 percent of consumers buying Valentine's Day gifts are expected to buy sweet treats, which is up 5 percent from past year.

"Aussies looking to treat their partner with dinner, drinks and flowers should expect to splash out around $136 on the big day".

"We're just getting started; we've got routes going out putting up orders for Bishop right now and Hawthorne", said Regas.




One of many stories relating to the origin of Valentine's Day comes from ancient Rome, where a young priest named Valentine was furious with the outlawing of marriage for young couples and performed them in secret.

But there's more focus on flowers during the workweek, he said.

CBA also found that the "most romantic" group are those aged 26-35, accounting for 38 per cent of all florist spend and 36 of all restaurant spend.

Something to watch out for is the flower delivery business' "substitution policy". It is generally considered the biggest single day for sales of the year. Well, this year, Lisa's Floral Expressions in downtown Pottsville is adding rainbow-colored roses to the mix.

It appears Valentine's Day participation tapers off the older Aussies get.

"It's really a great time because people are really excited when they come in and they're excited when they get their delivery, and love it when they bring the kids with because their pretty excited about it".

"While it is a small number of the overall volume of orders, we do take each and every enquiry very seriously".

"We also have candles and soaps, that's flawless to send with flowers", she said.
