A florist in Lansing, Rebecca Slocum, told News 10 they are working around the clock this weekend to fill an influx of orders.

Slocum said there’s a rush on now for flower shops preparing for Mother’s Day.

“It’s all hands on deck. Everybody is here,” Slocum said. “You usually don’t need so many people on staff at once, but we need everyone here making deliveries, making orders, taking orders yeah lots of work to do.”

Jon Anthony florist is usually closed on Sundays, but will be open on Mother’s Day to make sure everyone can get something for mom.
