PHOENIX -- The team at Cactus Flower, like at florist shops throughout the country, is preparing for their second busiest holiday of the year -- Mother's Day.

But unlike Valentine's Day, our celebration of moms is not a one-day deal. Orders have been flowing into family-owned Cactus Flower fast and furious all week.

"It's Mother's Week," Eric Luoma, owner of Cactus Flowers, told 3TV's Tess Rafols. "We'll do thousands of deliveries. We've got a couple thousand today and tomorrow."

The company hired 50 extra drivers to handle those deliveries.

There are five Cactus Flower locations. For more information or to place an order, check out CactusFlower.com.
