Unique Flowers make a memorable gift!
Think "outside of the box" when sending your next floral gift! The possibilities are endless! Floral Design is an art and florists can customize a masterpiece of flowers!
Many florists put a sampling of arrangements on their websites for you to see, but don't feel confined to the photos! The most impressive arrangements are of an "original" design.
Ask the florist about any "specialty" flowers they may have in stock. Inquire about alternatives of greens, grasses, ruscus, palm leaves, etc. Have your local florist use a unique urn vase, a large basket or another unique container instead of a standard vase.
When in doubt, play to the senses, ask for aromatic lilies, roses and orchids in striking colors. Combined in a unique elegant vase, this floral gift will make quite an impression!
Tropical flowers offer a unique presentations as well. Their vivid colors and exceptional textures are far more dramatic than a standard daisy.
To ensure that your recipient receives what you asked for, be sure to order direct from the florist designing & delivering the order. Call Centers/Order Takers do not know what the florist has in stock, leading to substitutions. You can also be assured that your order will be filled to value when dealing with the florist that will be creating your floral gift. Why pay someone to order your flowers for you?!?! Call a florist directly. Call the florists that the middlemen call!
So, use your imagination! A unique gift of flowers customized by YOU will be very appreciated!
