I bought a cemetery blanket from Creative Expressions 2 times the owner WOULD NOT fill my request for red and white carnations placed throughout the blanket--being charged $70 and not being able to fulfill a simple customer request I contacted the cemetery who connected me with a girl who not only filled my request but she actually delivers the blanket to the grave for $45!!

On Feb. 12, 2015, I called in an order for one dozen, long-stemmed, red roses to be delivered the following day, Valentine's Day at my girlfriend's place of employment. Paid for with my credit card in full, when the order was placed. I was very specific in my instructions about the flowers being delivered on Valentine's Day, even having a conversation with the owner about the surprise I had planned for my girlfriend, of which this was just one component. So, it was my own great surprise when my girlfriend called me just 2 hours later, thanking me for the roses that were DELIVERED A DAY EARLY, to her workplace, even though she WAS NOT WORKING THAT DAY, so her coworkers had to call her at home to come pick them up. SURPRISE! The entire surprise package, which relied on a simple matter of following clear instructions, was ruined. I made three separate calls to Creative Expressions, having to leave a detailed message each time, yet not once received even so much as the courtesy of a return call. I placed a review (negative) on their website, but I suppose only positive testimonials are suffered, because it was deleted. Apparently, the owner can't take criticism, either. Absolutely inexcusable business practice. One star ONLY because it is required for the testimonial.

I received a flower delivery on 2/13 at work for Valentines Day from my boyfriend. However I did not receive the flowers that he paid for. He paid for a dozen of purple roses with additional purple flowers to make up the arrangement in a purple vase. what I received was 4 purple roses 2 white and a variety of flowers that were not purple in a red vase. He paid $127.00. we are extremely upset and are completely dissatisfied. No one I Know will ever buy flowers from creative expressions.
Tips & Advices
Making the trip to your local florist means you can actually get the chance to stop and smell the roses. But the hours they are open can be more restrictive.
Online flower shops, work with wholesale florists near your area to ensure they deliver your order promptly. Since cut flowers don't have a long shelf life, these Internet-based companies take your request and contract it out to a florist in your locale to design it and drop it off at your home or office. While purchasing flowers online is convenient - there are a few things the online stores cannot offer patrons. You can't smell the fragrance of flowers and you can't touch the petals or leaves before you buy the plant. Additionally, when you buy a bouquet over the Internet, you're basing your decision on a stock photo of the item instead of the actual one that will arrive at your doorstep.
Yes. These experts can tell you the best ways to take care of your plants or how to properly cut the stems of flowers to ensure they last longer in your vase. Ask them vase to use with which flower and how much water and plant food you should use to prolong the life of your bouquet or potted plant. Even though retail florists don't usually grow the blooms or plants themselves, they do know the best ways to keep your arrangement looking fresh for longer.
Flowers, especially the lotus, figure prominently in Hindu and Buddhist religious ceremonies, as well as in these two ancient religions' wedding customs. Many florists provide garlands of flowers to decorate and festoon the functions with.
Lilies, as well as daffodils and tulips, are especially popular around these spring holidays.
