Take a look inside a local flower shop during one of the busiest days of the year

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Flowers, chocolate, I'm sure a lot of people got some special deliveries today. We took a look inside a local flower shop on one of their busiest days of the year.

It's the Super Bowl of flower days.

"6:30 this morning. Stayed until midnight on Monday, and then Tuesday, last night, we were here til almost 11 so it's been a crazy week," says Chippewa Valley Floral owner Shannon Lindquist.

Add in the snow, and Valentine's Day is keeping Chippewa Valley Floral extra busy this year.

"With school being canceled this morning, we had a lot of rerouting to do with the schools, so it's been pretty crazy."

Hundreds of flower orders were prepped,

"It's called leaf shine, so it shines up the leaves of the stems," Lindquist explains, spraying down some of the stems.

Arranged,

"We've done a lot of mixed rose colors this year for some reason, instead of just solid. People are switching it up," Lindquist says.

And sent out the door to be delivered.

"We were a smidge behind and we had a ton of deliveries to do, so there's only so much one can do, so we did the best we could," says Lindquist.

Chippewa Valley Floral says this is one of the busiest Valentine's Days it's had in years.

"Maybe it's between the chocolate truffles and the roses, we have some awesome packages. We've just been swamped," Lindquist says, adding she's "not complaining!"
