Valentine’s Day is in FOUR DAYS! Yikes! Are YOU ready yet? All it takes one call to us–we’ll deliver everything right to your recipient. Main Floral has the flowers and we have the chocolates! With Valentine’s day being on a Saturday this year–you’ll have to make a choice–you can show off a bit, and have flowers delivered to their work (on Friday) OR, you can wait until Saturday. (Or, you can blow her away and do BOTH!) Either way–no matter what you choose, we’re here to help! Give us a call today, so you can put it out of your mind tomorrow. 763.421.7411
Obviously, since you know that between us, and Main Floral, we love our chocolate and flowers–we thought we’d pass on a little bit of fun, Valentine’s Day trivia that we got from SheKnows.com. We had NO idea that 15% of U.S. women send flowers to themselves, but we think it’s the BEST idea ever. (And, we’ve totally bought them for ourselves! We can’t help that we LOVE fresh flowers on the kitchen table and there’s a flower shop right next door. :) )
