Flower designers and delivery drivers busy for Mother's Day

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) Designers and delivery drivers were busy, busy at Petersen and Tietz Florist and Greenhouse in Waterloo.

Business has really been going since Thursday because a lot of people want flowers delivered to Mom at work. Saturday is the biggest home delivery day.

Heidi Tietz De Silva said Mother's Day is the busiest holiday of the year for most flower shops, second is Valentine's Day.

She said everyone has a mother and many want to show mom their appreciation.

"I would say from a fresh flower standpoint it's just mixed, bright, happy bouquets. A lot of times what we'll have is people will say Mom's favorite color is pink or be sure to include lavender and we'll specialize it in that particular way," said Heidi Tietz De Silva.

Besides fresh flowers, there are a lot of other options for Mom. Many people are buying hanging baskets, patio pots or even vegetables.
