      Flower shops were hoppin' for Mother's Day

      Forsberg Flowers in Marquette has been extremely busy for the past week with Mother's Day.

      Owner Lou Ann Balding says she and her staff have filled over 800 orders in the last week. About 70 percent of them have been over the phone or online.

      Balding recommends ordering in-store so that you know what is available and so you can see that it's what you want versus just looking at online pictures. For Balding, Mother's Day is extra special as her store is operated through multiple generations of mothers and daughters.

      "Whether your mom is still walking this Earth with you or not, she still holds a place in your heart, and to remember that and honor that, whether it be in memory or being able to bring her something, is probably the key to the holiday. That's what we're celebrating," said Balding.

      Balding says that the only holiday busier than Mother's Day is Valentine's Day.
