If there was a zero star, I would have chosen it. I called this shop to purchase a Pink Roses Teacup Bouquet for my mom's birthday. I called & a woman named Tammy stated that they had a teacup that was different than pictured for $22 not including the flowers or $5 delivery fee. I stated that was fine but politely mentioned that their website was a little misleading because it states that the bouquet is 'AS SHOWN' for $32.99 & doesn't mention any other fees attached. The lady then started speaking to me with a snooty attitude & proceeded to tell me that www.mcbridefloristdecatur.com wasn't their website, that they can't order things from there because they wouldn't make any money, & that they are allowed to make substitutions, etc. etc. I told Tammy just to cancel my order. I'm not going to buy from a business with rude employees & terrible customer service.

I ordered a colorful (mainly purple) bouquet to give my 8 year old daughter @ her award ceremony. I specifically asked for a BOUQUET not an arrangement. I got: not 1 twig of purple only pink & white- hardly colorful & it was in a huge ugly pink vase. How is an 8 year old going to hold that while accepting her award? I didn't have time to dispute the contents. They offered to wrap it as a bouquet & took it in the back room where they bad mouthed ME for not specifying an "arm" bouquet. It was returned to me wrapped in TISSUE PAPER. Guess what happens to tissue paper when wrapped around wet stems? If they had questions about what I wanted they should have asked for clarification when I ordered. I was still charged $50.. what I received wouldn't have been worth $50 even w/the vase! By the time I gave my daughter her flowers, the tissue paper had dissolved into a disgusting green mess. Could've bought better quality & $ @ the local supermarket w/better customer service.

THEY FAILED TO DELIVER FLOWERS...TWICE! I ordered flowers for my niece's graduation and they were NOT DELIVERED on the scheduled day or the day after. Two days went by and THEY DID NOT CALL ME to let me know they had trouble delivering. (My family was home all day to prepare for the party, but they said they had tried. I verified they had the correct address, their cell number, and mine.) When the recipient contacted them they claimed to know nothing about the order, then they scheduled for delivery first thing the next morning (2 days late) and THEY DIDN'T SHOW UP!! That afternoon I called the florist to inquire about it and she was immediately defensive and RUDE. She said it was NOT THEIR POLICY TO CALL PEOPLE WHEN THEY COULDN'T DELIVER THE FLOWERS. I was told I had 2 choices: they could deliver them that afternoon or I could get a refund. I asked that the flowers be delivered that afternoon. A few minutes later the same woman called back and said she was canceling my order. She seemed angry that I suspected they had forgotten about the arrangement, and she refused to deliver flowers to my niece. I called a few days later and spoke with the owner, who admitted he had FORGOTTEN ABOUT THE DELIVERY. Even then NO ONE WANTED TO APOLOGIZE! I got a half-hearted apology only after I pointed out that I had spoken with three different people, including the owner, and not one of them had said they were sorry about the incident. I have been using this florist for years but I won't be ordering from them again.
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.
