JACKSON, Tenn.- Guys and girls, Valentines Day is here again, so hopefully you have already gotten a gift, made dinner reservations and ordered flowers.

Some of the work will be going on throughout the night and Thursday morning as florists across West Tennessee prepare for one of the busiest days of the year. Red roses are the go-to flower for most.

Millions will be delivered, Thursday, across the country. The folks at Sand's Florist in Jackson told WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News their orders for Valentines Day have run the gamut.

"The largest order we have gotten so far is a little over $200, just for going to one individual person. We have had people spend as much money as $350 to $400 when they have a wife and children at home," said Chris Maxwell, owner of Sands Floral.
