FLORISTS in Emerald are gearing up for Valentine's Day tomorrow with large deliveries of flowers including sought-after red roses.
Blissful Blooms Florist has the romantic day sorted - offering one lucky customer the chance to shower their loved one with surprises.
"If customers spend $100 or more they go into the draw to win a Jumbo Roly Bear and 12 red roses, delivered on Valentine's Day," Blissful Blooms Florist's Carmen Maguire said.
The prize is drawn tomorrow morning and Carmen encouraged those looking for the perfect gift to pre-order before the competition closes at the end of today.
"We've got a huge range of chocolates... I've had the burden of testing them myself," she said with a laugh.
"We've got Ecoya candles, gift packs of chocolates, wine and body products and all sorts of toys of course.
"It's the perfect place to shop for gifts and flowers to spoil your loved one - including small or giant floating balloons - there's something to suit everybody's budget."
Spoilt florist Katie Nolan said staff have had a couple of sleepless nights in the lead-up to Valentine's Day, ordering 2500 roses for the occasion.
Big arrangements of a dozen roses and lily and rose bouquets have been popular this year, she said.
While florists within the south-east corner of the state were experiencing difficulties in sourcing roses for tomorrow in the aftermath of ex-cyclone Oswald, Katie said their supply had not been interrupted.
Spoilt is selling Columbian roses for $150 for a dozen long-stemmed and $80 for dozen short-stemmed.
"They're a premium rose and a high quality," Katie said.
"They are the top of the range when it comes to roses."
It's the thought that counts at Ethereal Gifts and Flowers this Valentine's Day.
The store has a great range of flowers, chocolates and personal gifts like body lotions and moisturisers to suit any woman.
Looking for peace and quiet then stop and take a look at this great property. The renovated home is set on 5 acres, town water and plenty of bird life. With all...
