Nashville Florists’ Delivery Flower Bouquets for Valentine’s Day
Each flower has been intentionally plucked one stem at a time from buckets of roses, poppies and tulips, ensuring each arrangement has been created with care.
The floral designers’ concentration was interrupted when Marvin Gaye played on the speaker and made her laugh.
“Just the flower itself is amazing. The design of it. His smell. It’s just very creative, ”said Melissa Seykora, owner of A Village of Flowers, in the Hillsboro Village neighborhood of Nashville. “When we can help spread joy and love, it’s so touching. It really gives the impression that our work is worth it.
For most florists, Valentine’s Day is the busiest day of the year. Spending on the holidays is expected to reach $ 27.4 billion in the United States, up 32% from 2019, according to the National Retail Federation. It is estimated that $ 2.3 billion will be spent on the flowers.
Seykora has been working in the floral industry since quitting her job as a water skier at SeaWorld. She worked for A Village of Flowers for two years before buying the store in 2004 with her husband.
A flower village has set a goal of 300 flower arrangements for Valentine’s Day in 2020, up slightly from last year. Preparing for the holidays begins each January when the flower arrangement options are created and flowers are ordered.
With so many orders, they rented a warehouse in Fort Houston to fill it with flowers and hired staff that more than tripled for the holidays. From time to time, the workers stopped to smell the roses.
“Hope this brightens up their day,” Haley Heacock said as she wore an all-pink outfit for the holidays. “I like knowing that I’m doing visual art so that someone can enjoy it in their home.
Seykora described herself and her employees as “vessels” that lift people’s spirits with a bouquet and a note from their loved one.
Yet it doesn’t start and end on February 14; as the message of some cards says, “Every day is Valentine’s Day. “
