Ava's Flowers and ProFlowers. Both of these companies had the same problem as Flower.com — they were great in some cities and awful in others, gathering both very high and very low scores depending on location. In Chicago, both companies sent the worst, saddest bouquets our writer received — the roses were shedding leaves and petals like crazy; some blossoms were entirely broken off; and the stems hadn’t been dethorned. So why include them on our list of companies to consider? Because in Seattle, both Ava’s Flowers and ProFlowers got perfect scores.

When we called to inquire what went wrong in Seattle, it was frustrating: we were disconnected twice after waiting awhile on hold before finally getting in touch with a customer service manager who informed us that we had actually been sent the wrong bouquet! We walked through our options: FlowerPetal said Seattle’s flower shop has been a trusted partner for years and was quick to offer a replacement bouquet or full refund — all great to hear, but the experience coupled with an outdated website couldn’t top FTD.

Flower.com. While boasting a less-cluttered website than its twin company, JustFlowers.com, Flower.com still has, to put it bluntly, a crappy website. Blurry pictures, poor product descriptions, and an overall “it’s 2002 and online shopping is a new phenomenon” feeling left a bad taste in our mouths. But, the bouquet itself was perfection and looked just like its (blurry) online picture — at least, in Chicago and North Carolina. But the bouquets received poor scores in both Wisconsin and Seattle. Our Wisconsin tester reported that while her flowers weren’t show-stopping, they looked decent — once they actually arrived. Delivery was delayed — twice — because the florist was out of red roses. At our Seattle location, we were greeted with a bouquet that looked drastically different than the online photo, complete with a different vase, no baby’s breath, and a scant amount of greenery. You win some; you lose some, but at $85.46 for a dozen delivered roses, it’s an expensive gamble.


The flowers sold in florist shops typically represent the varieties abundantly available in the season but also include blossoms flown in from around the world. Basic varieties in temperate latitudes include roses, tulips, irises, orchids and lilies. Fashion sometimes plays a role in floristry; what is considered the flower that everyone needs to have today can change very quickly.
Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day are the busiest days of the year for florists, which can strain resources and limit what’s available for same-day delivery. To avoid the frustration of seeing “not available” next to the bouquet you’ve picked out, we recommend placing your order as far in advance as possible. This ensures you get what you want and can help avoid rush delivery fees.

Modern/European Style floristry involves contemporary, linear designs that highlight unique forms of both individual floral materials and of the designs themselves. Arrangements generally feature negative space and incorporate asymmetric placement of materials. The style stands in direct contrast to traditional radial arrangements such as English Garden. Modern designs are identified by their play on the space used between each bloom, which is often dramatic, and the play on the use of color and different textures, which can be quite experimental.
