* My daughter said that the flowers were beautiful and arrived in time for her grand opening. I appreciated the extra care in the phone call regarding the look of the finished product and that it would not look like the picture and my options. Generally speaking I usually get whatever the florist decides when I order flowers so this was refreshing. I have told numerous people already about the phone call because it was so outside of the norm and how satisfied and happy I was with the service.
* This was my first experience and it was a good one. I found something very nice in the price range I wanted and could get it delivered the day I wanted
* Great service and very reliable
