Ordering Flowers

As former florists, we witnessed all too often "Order Gatherers" taking advantage of consumers. These companies even purchase ads in your local yellow pages. They buy sponsored ads in major search engines online. They create websites that lead you to believe that they are a local florist. These companies often work in a call center, far removed from the recipient of your flower gift.

These companies will process your $60.00 floral arrangement order and pass it on to a local florist at a value of $43.00 (to include delivery) You paid $60.00! It just doesn�t make sense. We find these companies to be misleading and dishonest. They would never tell you that the value of your arrangement is compromised. They are happy to process your order and keep a portion of your money. Consumers deserve better.

Always make sure you are dealing directly with a REAL local florist to get the best value and better service!

Here are just a few of the advantages of ordering your flowers from a REAL local florist;

A Better Value!- 100% of your order is applied to your flowers and delivery, No middleman, No extra fees!

Professional advice- Only a professional florist can offer you expert advice to your floral questions. They can suggest creative floral ideas for any occasion. After all, THEY will be designing your flower arrangement. Talk to the people who know flowers, not pictures of flowers.

Availability- By talking directly to the florist you know what flowers/gift items are available.

In Store Promotions/Sales- You may discover that the florist is offering a sale or special promotion that you were not aware of...saving you even more money!

Your Specific Details- You can specify any little details about your order, even important delivery specifications. Errors are common when your order is relayed through a middleman. When you call the florist directly, your order is placed right at the source.

You are supporting a small business within the community- A business that in turn supports their community, keeping it thriving economically.

Flowers are the ultimate gift of expression. You deserve the best value for your money. A REAL local florist will provide you with professional advice & service. Always make sure that the florist you are calling holds a physical address in the area you are sending to. You will be so glad you did!
