Hanukkah and Christmas are now behind us. Thanks for reading and commenting on my recent posts about holiday flowers, crafts and decorating. I hope everyone enjoyed the very best and most relaxing holiday season.
At Calyx Flowers we’ve assembled a nice collection of New Year’s flowers, plants, preserved floral arrangements and table centerpieces that make festive New Year’s party decorations.
The next really big floral occasion is Valentine’s Day. Over 180 million stems of roses will be cut and shipped for Valentine’s Day delivery. Valentine’s Day ranks as the number one holiday in the floral industry, capturing 35% of all holiday transactions. Valentine’s Day is also the number one holiday for your local florist, according to the Society of American Florists. The US market for flowers and plants was $19.5 billion in 2004, according to the US Department of Commerce.
As Valentine’s Day gift ideas, Calyx Flowers will offer designer bouquets with an emphasis on red rose bouquets, including the lavish 100 Roses Bouquet — over eight dozen red roses delivered in a magnificent Wine Chiller and accompanied by gourmet chocolate truffles!
