Cedar Falls business provides sweet Valentine's Day gifts


To many, Valentine's Day means sending and receiving giant bouquets of flowers. One business in Downtown Cedar Falls offers gift-buyers a sweeter alternative for their sweethearts.

Candy Blossoms specializes in creating bouquets out of candy, chocolates and other assorted goodies.

The store saw no shortage of customers on Valentine's Day with people coming in and out of the store right up until closing time.

Although many customers came in to pick up pre-ordered bouquets, many also came in for some last-minute shopping. Candy Blossoms began the day with about 40 arrangements made especially for those looking for a quick buy.  By 5:00 p.m., the store was left with only two bouquets on the shelf.

Allison Hora came into the store at about 4:30 p.m. to buy a bouquet or two to give to her candy-loving roommates.

"I feel like when people think about Valentine's Day, they automatically think about flowers and chocolate," said Hora. "Instead of doing flowers, because they don't last as long, I think it'd be cute to be different and do a bouquet of candy instead."

Candy Blossoms also had two delivery people on duty throughout the day, delivering as far as Waverly and Dyke.  Many orders were also shipped to states like Florida and California.

Besides Valentine's Day, Candy Blossoms sees the most business around the holiday season.
