LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Valentine's Day is less than 48 hours away, and many might be worried about what to buy, while others are fretting over words.
Whether the card is signed or not, the person receiving flowers is always anxious to read what's inside that tiny card.
Frances Flower Shop in Downtown Little Rock has been playing cupid for more than 60 years. Sales associate, Sarah Lee said most enclosure card messages are short and sweet.
"There's all kinds of things. If they're apart, you know, 'I miss you. I wish I was there with you on Valentine's.' We have a lot call from the service, from overseas and place orders and that's real sweet," she said.
"'Happy Valentine's Day, love whoever they are.' Yes they're really short," said sales associate Victoria Munerlyn.
Lee said most men are not Romeos and many are at a loss for words.
"We always try to joke them into something cute like, 'Will you be my valentine? Check the box yes or no.' They just love that. They love for you to try and help them think of something to say," she explained, but Lee also said some know exactly what they want to convey. "One man asked his wife to marry him five years ago and on his little card message he put, 'I made you mine five years ago.'"
Whether the message melts your heart or makes you smile. Flower shop veteran Sarah Lee said it's the thought that counts.
"I've always told our customers; 'It's not that you have to give the largest arrangement. It can be so simple, but it has a meaning.' I think if flowers are given to a woman that has meaning behind it, I think they're more special," she said. "Before the end of the day Thursday, I will get one that makes me cry."
Valentine's Day will be going more virtual this year. It's estimated that 62 percent of couples will utilize some form of technology or social media to share their Valentine's Day messages.
