Don't forget your sweetie!!
Did you know that Sweetest Day actually originated in Cleveland in 1922? Herbert Kingston, a philanthropist and a candy company employee came up with the idea. He wanted to bring happiness into the lives of orphans and others who were forgotten. With the help of his friends, he began to distribute candy and small gifts to the underprivileged. During the years that followed, other Clevelanders began to participate in Sweetest Day. Primarily the Great Lakes region and the Northeast celebrate this holiday. Ohio is the top state for Sweetest Day sales followed by Michigan and Illinois. Don't forget Sweetest Day is this Saturday the 15th!! Send your sweetie our signature arrangement which starts at only $49.98. Using reds and deep pinks gives this arrangement a romantic feel.
