Feb. 14 falling on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday makes for happy florists. But falling on a Monday this year limits the options for workplace flower deliveries because early deliveries won’t come during the workweek.
Traditionally, buyers of Valentine’s Day flowers are men who want their sweethearts to get their bouquets at work for everyone to see. Of course, the optimum delivery day is the day itself. But florists often offer senders incentives for deliveries a day or two early, freeing up time for day-of deliveries.
