Valentine’s Day is basically a massacre for a florist. For three days prior it gets really, really tense. It’s when you start to loose sight of what the holiday is all about. LOVE! At our store, we all try and stop and realign ourselves to that theory, take a deep breath, dream of romance and try to ignore the commercial aspect of Valentine’s Day.
Sweetest Valentine Violet Bunches
Bonny Doon Posies
I was so very, very excited to have an old customer stop in that I haven’t seen or spoke to for years. He’s from Davenport, and for years he always called us and ordered Posies for his wife and two daughters for Valentine’s Day. He walked in the day before and was so excited to see I had this posie out on display. He bought this one, plus I whipped one more up too. Then, later that day, another gentleman came with his empty mint julep for a Posie too! A young French gentleman who also has been buying Posies from us for years! I can’t tell you how exciting it is that we have a tiny Posie following. It’s the ultimate in romance. Saying it all–literally–with these little gems!
