Choosing a Florist

Flowers are always an appropriate gift, but choosing a florist that's right for you will make the most out of your gesture.

Select a florist who'll get to know you, keep track of your favorite flowers, and send reminders of upcoming special occasions. Find one with convenient hours and a guarantee of satisfaction.

A good florist will ask questions about what you're looking for, offer their expert advice, and suggest gifts to match any sentiment, occasion, or even home décor.

Look for artistry in the florist's designs and presentation. A great shop carries a complete selection of different, high-quality flowers. It should also provide floral food with purchases and offer instructions for proper care.
