In The Clutch

We all have had that feeling of wondering what to get our other halves for their birthdays, Christmas, Valentine's Day, just becauses, etc. But finding that perfect gift in time can be a challenge. What do you get for the person you decided to share your eternity with? What will I get them that shows them just how much I love them, and how much will it cost?

Flowers are always a great idea and I will tell you why they will never go out of style. Flowers not only look beautiful but they are also statements in flora, in a living organism. Flower meanings reach every emotion from passion to desire, love to I am so sorry. Giving flowers doesn't just please the eye, it pleases the core of your soul.

I stumbled across while searching around the net for the top flower delivery services. In no time at all the order was made, and the Orchids delivered a few days later. How was the overall service and product? My impressions below and more.

Customized Ordering Process

Navigating the site and choosing the flowers you want to buy is a visually pleasing and simple task, you can even call if you still have a buy something online phobia. Searching for your lovers favorite flower is easy, and you will be pleasantly pleased to discover how the design and components work together to make a very beautiful flower display. There are true artists at work here.

Love Don't Cost a Thing, Duh

The total cost of everything was around $70 and the flowers were here exactly on the date I preferred them to be. My order was placed on 12/17 and I got them on 12/21. I could have gotten them a couple days sooner, but that's 5 bucks you don't need to pay for. Unless you are on a last minute mission scenario and need them asap.

She loves me not... She loves me!

When the package arrived it came in a decent sized box containing the plant and cardboard inside specially designed cardboard to aid in the plants stability during its journey. Attached to the side was an envelope that contained care instructions for watering, lighting, re-blooming, and overall general maintenance. Your personal message to your babe is also in this little envelope. I found one typo as you will see below but hey, no ones perfect and what are you going to do?

It now sits and waits for the approval of the Mrs...

Flower Power

All in all I have to say the experience was a fine and dandy one. Ordering was a breeze, I liked how I could set a delivery date, and the flowers were beautiful. What more could you want? Yeah they messed up some wording and more flowers could have been in bloom, but I find it funny they added an extra word and I will patiently wait with my love to see more of the flowers come to life.
