When asked to send a flower arrangement “just like the one you sent for us six months ago,”
we respond that our arrangements are like fingerprints; no two are the same.
There are so many ways to do flowers, just like the many flavors of ice cream.

Floral designers perform best when given license to create without micro-management. The worst approach, unfortunately the tack taken by the FTD/Teleflora crowd, is to come up with pictures of “ideal” arrangements and say, “Here, copy this!” Around the shop we call this “paint by numbers.” Designers hate these orders. They can do them, but they produce the worst outcomes. It is far better to put qualifiers on your arrangement and allow the designer to create within these parameters. Making flower choices to the following give a good formula the designer can follow. Vase or cello wrapped arrangements; Color, either bright, strong colors, or soft pastels, perhaps monochromatic; a mixture of garden flowers, tropical flowers, or all one type of flower; an arrangement with a contemporary feel, or more traditional.

Write your flower formula using these choices and we believe you will be happy with the designer’s creation.

Not to contradict what we have just said, but so that you may better understand these options, we include examples of our work for browsing here on the web. Just keep in mind that our presentation will be “in the spirit of” a certain arrangement. Our fresh flower stock changes day to day, and it is often impossible to replicate a certain flower arrangement viewed here.
