It can sometimes be difficult to find that gift that says how special mom is, but what woman doesn't enjoy a fresh arrangement of flowers? Luckily, a select few florists opened their doors this Mother's Day making it a busy day for last minute orders and final deliveries.
This annual day of appreciation brings in 30 % of sales for the entire floral industry after about $2.3 million in flower sales for the day. Nearly 75 % of those celebrating Mom's day will buy some flowers making it the busiest week for florists.
This year a lot of roses and tulips were sold, as well as hanging baskets and combination pots.
So lucky for you last minute shoppers, there were some local florists opened this Mother's Day ready to deliver, so you could stay on the good list this mother's day weekend.
