Valentine’s Day and flowers go hand in hand. Lancaster offers many choices but time is running out!
Score twice with Flowers by Paulette! You could win a trip to the NBA Playoffs. If you send one of the participating bouquets, you could win a trip for four to a playoff game. Other prizes are also offered in this “Send and Score” sweepstakes. The florist offers same day delivery on most bouquets. It is a Teleflora shop, making your out of town deliveries smoother as well. The shop, located at 258 North Queen Street, is open special hours this week. Special hours are: Sunday, noon to 3 p.m.; Monday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Wednesday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Thursday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Friday (Valentine’s Day), 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The number there is 717-295-5411.
“We offer designs that are unique to our shop - many featuring a clean contemporary look for the stylish Valentine,” said Mary Beth Shenk of Flowers by Paulette.
Stauffers of Kissel Hill offers several Valentine gift ideas as well. House plants and fairy gardens allow your special floral gift to last longer. SKH has several locations in Lancaster County, including the main one on Lititz Pike across from the Lancaster Airport.
Keep that Valentine’s Day spirit alive longer with dried flowers. Fresh cut flowers last for a week at most. Dried flowers last much long. Pricing varies and largely depends on the size of the piece and your choice of container or vase, according to Beth Deliver of Floral Fantasies. The other advantage of dried flowers is that nothing is ever out of season!
To have your dried floral arrangement delivered in time for Valentine’s Day, orders should be placed no later than Monday or Tuesday. Floral Fantasies, which covers the greater Lancaster/Manheim Township area, can be reached at 717-481-9919.
