Local florists are the best places to buy flowers for Valentine’s Day. These small Pennsylvania businesses can customize arrangements and work with your price range.

The Valentine’s Day season is the busiest time of the year for florists. In 2022, 22% of Americans purchased fresh flowers and plants for Valentine’s Day, according to the Society of American Florists.

Not surprisingly, roses make up the bulk of the fresh flowers gifted on Valentine’s Day. Eighty-three percent of people who buy flowers on the holiday purchase roses, and 65% of those flowers are red. And just over half (52%) of all Valentine’s Day spending is devoted to spouses or romantic partners. Clearly, Valentine’s Day is no longer just for those who have been shot by Cupid’s arrow. Gifts, including flowers, are given to parents, children, other close relatives, friends, and even co-workers.

When choosing flower colors to send, particularly with roses, it’s good to know what symbolism is associated with each color.

  • Red is for lovers. A bouquet of red roses is a romantic way to say, “I love you.”
  • Pink is for appreciation and admiration. Think parents, co-workers, and caregivers, or anyone you want to show gratitude to on Valentine’s Day.
  • Yellow is the color of friendship. Want to give your BFF a pick-me-up on February 14? Do it with yellow flowers.
  • Orange is for “I’m in like with you, maybe more.” If you’re in a new relationship and think it’s heading for love and commitment, but you’re not quite there yet, orange flowers can convey that message.

Of course, you can choose whatever color flowers you want for your Valentine. Simply choosing someone’s favorite flower or color does the trick, particularly when paired with a little chocolate, which many florists can add to your order.

Local florists are the best places to buy flowers for Valentine’s Day. These small businesses can customize arrangements and work with your price range. And, when you order from a local florist rather than a national one (who often use local florists to fulfill orders), more money goes into the pocket of the local florist. These seven small town Pennsylvania florists can take care of your Valentine’s flower orders plus a whole lot more.
