Square the love in Kennett Square this Valentine’s Day by showing your love for local. The love only grows when you shop and dine at Kennett Square’s small businesses—ensuring the most beautiful, unique, and thoughtful gifts and experiences in addition to supporting business owners, their employees, and families.

Thoughtful gifts and celebrations require a little planning, but whether you’re looking for a romantic multi-course meal, beautifully designed bouquet, decadent sweet treats, or even a creative experience, all you need to do is take a moment to plan ahead and let these local experts do the rest . . .

Love in Bloom

Hilltop Flower Co. is accepting pre-orders for their bouquets and arrangements featuring a classic Valentine’s Day palette of ruby reds, blush pinks, and soft whites. Bouquets come gently hand-wrapped in recyclable paper and arrangements are presented in a classic glass vase and bouquet box.⁠ Hilltop will be offering both in-store pickup and local delivery, starting Friday, February 10th, and will be open on Valentine’s Day for pickups and last-minute orders.

Another one of our talented local floral designers and Kennett Blooms: Floral Flash participants, Zena Florist, is offering Designer’s Choice Valentine’s Day arrangements. They’re “the perfect floral arrangement using the freshest flowers with the best value for your Valentine.”
