Dutch Floral Gardens is, by far, the best florist in Baltimore, and believe me, I've been to them all. I buy flowers from Dutch Connection about every two weeks. Their flowers are fresh, classy, and expensive. Their peonies and hydrangeas are so gorgeous you want to cry. Dutch Connection is very old-world European in feeling -- meaning if you are looking to run in for something cheap, or quick --not the place to go. Most of the staff is from Holland, and some don't speak English terrifically well. They may seem a little reserved in their interactions with customers but, I can assure you, they have bent over backwards to get exactly what I wanted on numerous occasions. Dutch Connection is the place to go for unusual, fresh, and beautiful, when you want something special, and are willing to pay for it. No place is perfect, but they deserve 5 stars.
We ordered a bouquet for our daughter's wedding (July 2, 2016). At the time I placed the order, It was difficult to determine the actual size I needed because the only reference point was a picture out of a catalog. On the day of the wedding, the bouquet was substantially smaller. The bridesmaids bouquets were more substantial in size and presented much better than the Bridal bouquet! After the wedding, I called and expressed my concern and was told that an extra flower was added to the bridesmaids arrangement to provide a fuller look; why couldn't the same be done for the Bridal bouquet? As a result, my daughter couldn't take pictures with the bouquet because the bridesmaids bouquets overshadowed hers! :) The response from staff was as though it was business as usual! won't be returning...
