This Thursday is Valentine's Day and local florists are busy crafting hundreds of gorgeous bouquets and floral arrangements to be shared between lovers, friends and family members. But what is it that makes certain flowers more romantic than others?
Watch the video clip above to see Melanie Straniero of Flowers By Melanie in Aberdeen share some tips for selecting the perfect Valentine's Day arrangement for your loved one.
Make sure to place your order at your local florist soon, however, as Feb. 14 is the busiest day of the year, according to Straniero.
"Valentine's Day is the biggest time of the year. Everybody has a Valentine, whereas on Mother's Day, not everybody has a mother or mothers don't always want you to spend money on them. But on Valentine's Day it's about love and everybody wants to feel the love," she said.
