Americans to spend almost $20 billion on Valentine's Day

Americans to spend almost $20 billion on Valentine's Day

While it would be easy to buy a dozen roses to profess your love to a significant other this Valentine's Day, understanding the language of flowers could help you take your floral overture to the next level.

Australians spent more than $23 million on Valentine's Day a year ago, new data from Commonwealth Bank reveals, and tomorrow's outlay is expected to be even greater.

Asked for the most absurd order she had ever witnessed on Valentines', the reply was a (perhaps overly-) flattering; "500 roses for one person".

She added: 'As is the case with all florists, we have to adjust our prices during the Valentine's period, however we have been careful not to inflate the price which is representative of grade A+ roses'.

Tomorrow's holiday honors the Bishop Valentine who went against his emperor's wishes to perform secret weddings.

MARKS AND SPENCER has been accused of "spoiling" Valentine's Day after sending out some bouquets a day early. The week before the actual holiday, employees will work around the clock putting together arrangements to be delivered. Regardless of how many get scheduled for Wednesday, he'll have a busy day: Murphy also is playing Valentine's parties at Oak Park Place and The Barn Restaurant. "What worked last year may not work this year".

When asked when the spike for Valentine's Day begins, Reid says it varies, and while some are buying gifts early, the last two days before the date are by far the busiest days of the Valentine's season. "We do additional things with flowers - chocolates, balloons and jewelry are all very popular at this time of year".

Monday represented the calm before the storm, which will roll in Tuesday.

While love will be in the air elsewhere, stress will descend on Baraboo's flower shops.

There are still items typically purchased on Valentine's Day.

The most unusual request was when someone brought in a portable heater to be delivered with a bunch of flowers.

KUSI's Allie Wagner was live at Flowers By Coley for Valentine's Day, where more roses are expected to be bought than any day of the year.

KCTV5 News put flower delivery services to the test to find out where you might get the best band for your buck.
