Flowers Delivered

Updated on April 20, 2011

Looking for just the right florist to handle your special occasion? After running two busy florist shops for 10 years, my brother knew the insider’s secrets to getting the freshest flowers, the best service, and the best value for your money. Sure, you could go to the local grocery store and let them handle your anniversary or special occasion, but the same guy who stocks the shelves with soup cans and broccoli might just be the same guy who whips up your flower arrangement, and the delivery vehicle might even be his car or van! Sure, you might save a few dollars, but if you are trying to make an impression…trust me, leave it to the professionals.

Neighborhood Florists - The Freshest Flowers

A legitimate neighborhood florist generally operates with much higher standards in mind, since flowers is all they do…most neighborhood florists pick and choose between a variety of wholesale sources, and get the freshest flowers, a better variety, and your bouquet is likely going to be designed and arranged by a floral designer who must meet certification and artistic qualifications. Best of all, professional florists also know how to handle and process flowers and greenery materials, and they are also skilled at properly carrying and delivering flowers so that they are not crushed, broken, or overheated on the way to your destination.

Recommended Retailer

I highly recommend a company called, which uses a select network of neighborhood florists to handle your order. It’s easy to use, and you can even get same day delivery in most areas. Grocery stores, even Home Depot sells flowers these days, but keep in my mind, buying flowers from Home Depot is a lot like going to your dry cleaners to get a tooth filled. Why trust your special delivery to someone who isn’t going to handle your order as if it were their own? JustFlowers.Com offers convenient access to the freshest flowers, attention to detail, and express delivery service. Visit their web site today and choose from a variety of freshly arranged flowers in all kinds of interesting containers, for any occasion!

      I agree, going to a florist vs. a grocery store is best as when I have purchase flowers from a grocery store , they do not seem to stay alive as along, nor do the scents seem as yummy. :)
