Surprise Deliveries on Valentine’s Day

It is a busy day for Florofino’s flower delivery man, Tom Tewskbary. His van is packed with flowers and balloons and he is ready to make valentine wishes come true. I decided to tag along with him and surprise a few lucky ladies.

"Sometimes they see the van and they want to know who is going to get the flowers," says Tewksbary.

He can cause quite a stir when he walks into a business, but it looked like fun so I decided to give it a try.

"I have a special delivery for Addie. Hi! I’m Katie with WHIZ, I have something special for you," I told a very surprised young woman.

And sometimes delivering flowers requires finding someone who is out and about.

"Melissa Moore I have a special delivery for you! Here you go happy Valentine’s Day," I said to Moore as she came down to meet us from her table at Buffalo Wild Wings.

But getting flowers from a loved one often makes a person’s day. Jo Anne and her husband, John have been married for 42 years.

"Hi Joanne, I have a delivery for you happy Valentines Day! "

She knows what it takes to make a marriage last.

"Understanding, treating somebody like you would like to be treated yourself and a lot of love," tells Jo Anne.

Giving flowers just shows someone you care and for Dee Montgomery, getting flowers from her son made her day.

"We have a delivery for you happy Valentine’s Day!"

"Oh thank you, I didn’t expect this!" tells a smiling Montgomery.

So next time you see the Florofino’s van pull into your driveway ,you never know what surprises might be heading your way!
