WESTCHASE — Valentine's Day is on Sunday, and two local businesses are teaming up to make shopping for your sweetheart as easy as getting a cup of coffee.

The Grind Coffee Bar & Cafe is hosting the Bean and Bloom Flower Event, with local florist, Ann Brock, of The Posh Petal Tampa Co-op. Starting at 8 a.m. today and going through Sunday, there will be a pop-up flower and gift store inside The Grind.

Brock, who is a regular at The Grind, collaborated on the idea with the owner and management of The Grind. She recently relocated from Houston, where she had a thriving floral shop business.

"I noticed that people want convenience," Brock said. "They want something where they're already going to be rather than going to a separate place."

The Bean and Bloom Flower Event will offer a large assortment of flowers, including those not typically associated with Valentine's Day. Pre-made arrangements will be available, or customers can choose from loose stems.

In addition to flowers, there will be cards, gifts and plants.

"I'll have things for kids, too," said Brock. She makes flower wands, which are made with long stem flowers and sparkly bows.

All items are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and there are no pre-orders or deliveries.

The Grind Coffee Bar & Cafe is located at 9532 W Linebaugh Ave. and the phone number is (813) 749-7533. The Bean and Bloom Flower Event runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday .
