PEORIA - Saturday is Mother's Day, which is one of the busiest days for flower shops.

Becks Florist in Peoria has been busy getting arrangements ready.

Co-owner Victor Becks said Mother's Day is considered the second busiest gift-giving holiday of the year.

The difficult part, he said, is getting as many flowers ready without them rotting.

But that it's all worth it, as long as mom has her special day.

"It is fantastic business," Becks said. "We have to plan far in advance in the purchase of all the different items, that come in to play, for this gift-giving holiday."

Becks said Mother's Day is a close second to Valentines Day.
