Valentines Day is truly one of the biggest holidays of the year for florists, and this year’s has come and gone with great success. We are so proud to see more people turning to their real local florist when they need flowers, and even more proud of how well these florists were able to take care of their customers with good service and quality products.
On the day after Valentines Day, we asked florists to share their favorite memories of the holiday and were answered with overwhelming response. As you are reading these, consider how much these florists care for each and every customer.
“Our story is a post-Valentine one. We took all of the extra wrapped roses and bouquets we had made up and went to 3 retirement homes today and gave the flowers away. It was a sweet way to end the holiday and to share the love with many people who don’t receive flowers that often.” -Allan’s Flowers & Prescott Valley Florist, Prescott, AZ
