With the economy sucking Big Time and most everyone
trying to be careful with the bucks...the florist in me
is working full time designing warm and fuzzy ways
to say 'I Love You" that
won't break the bank.
If you're one of those who thinks
Valentine's Day comes with its own mandate...
a dozen red roses or else...hold on...
this year, a recession dozen is 6!
and they don't
even have to be red,
just good quality, fresh and beautifully presented.
Call Big Zu , tell us your budget and we'll get on it.
Now, doesn't that ease your mind?

I've been thinking about Valentine's Day.
It's my job.
This year, more than ever, it looms large.
To be honest, I'm stressed...
And definitely hyper-focused.
I have lists dating back to the 90's.
Records of what flowers I bought,
what was sold, what was left.
what we could have used more of,
what we should have had less of.
This year, the lousy economy casts a long shadow.
There is also the fact that The Day falls on Saturday
and the following Monday is President's Day...
A 4 Day Weekend!
Will people go away?
Or will people opt to be home and "staycation"?
I will know on February 15th.
I'm thinking six Roses and some filler fluff is the Recession Dozen.
More ideas to come.
