Local Florists Preparing for Their Busiest Day

By  | 

It is down to the wire for local florists as they prepare for what they say is their busiest day of the year.

"Valentine's Day is the biggest single day as far as getting things out into the community," according to Gina Laughlin with World of Flowers in Meridian.

Laughlin says her staff will start making deliveries as early as 7:30 on Tuesday morning and will work throughout the day to ensure everyone receives their order. In fact, orders were still being called in on Monday afternoon, making an already busy day even busier.

"But we do hire extra drivers, we hire extra people that will help us with making cards, filling vases, and getting the greenery in place," she adds. "But we do almost all of the arrangements ourselves."

Despite all of the hard work and effort that goes into making Valentine's Day a success, Laughlin says she and her staff have a blast putting together orders and says they look forward to the occasion each and every year.

"It's just the happiest day of the year," she exclaims. "Valentine's Day is nothing but fun and love and everybody can participate."

Local florists say if you have yet to order flowers for Valentine's Day, then your best bet is to actually stop by a local florist and pick out your order in person.
