Blue Ribbon Floral: what do users think?


Kate Touscany Miller: Ali was amazing! We worked with her ahead of our (rescheduled) wedding, and she was incredibly responsive, accommodating and helpful. The flowers turned out beautifully, and she will actually be working to set my bouquet in epoxy resin to preserve. She was very cognizant of my budget and worked to make the most of how much we were comfortable spending

Katie Umberger: Ali was incredibly helpful, thoughtful and responsive. We changed our minds at the beginning about what we wanted and Ali was able to pivot and make sure we had exactly what we wanted. On the day of she was awesome in making sure we had everything we needed where it was supposed to go. I’d highly recommend!

Rebecca Wilken: Ali is incredible!!!! In looking for help with a bouquet for our elopement, we were interested in finding someone that utilized in-season blooms where possible. Ali did that and more. With just a few inspo photos, she created the most gorgeous bouquet I have ever SEEN and will drool over in photos for years to come. All that, and she was incredibly kind and easy to work. We will definitely be visiting the truck in the future. Thank you, Ali!!!
Response: Thanks Rebecca! I'll still be swooning over your bouquet years to come as well!

Dominic Giglio-Tos: The best florist I have worked with so far. They had a good number of deliveries to make on Valentines day I am sure, yet the delivered in a timely manner, even calling me to make sure I knew the flowers had been delivered (I was not home at the time). The flowers themselves are great, they just opened today so they seem like they will last a long time, and they look great. I will be making this my florist of choice when flowers are called for!
Response: Thanks for the kind words Dominic--we had over 100 deliveries in one day!

Lauren Stuart: Blue Ribbon Floral is AMAZING! We really enjoy our bi-weekly flower deliveries so when we were planning our elopement it was a no-brainer to use them for the flowers. Ali and her mom did an incredible job making my vague Pinterest vision a reality. She was able to make it better than I could have imagined while staying within by budget for the day. Could not recommend more highly!
Response: Thanks Laurent--I can't wait to see the photos from your big day!

York Flowers: what do users think?


Merry Richon: The tree we saw on the York Flowers web site looked perfect for our space and indeed it is exactly that! Delivered promptly and in beautiful shape. Just an additional note - this beautiful creation lasted for five weeks - wow!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, Merry Richon. We are so happy that we were able to help you decorate for the holidays and we hope that you enjoy your tree for many more weeks to come! Thanks again!

Betsy Buckland: This was a last minute, long distance order for a friend who is ill. I completed the order on line (so didn't talk directly to anyone) and the process couldn't have been easier! Just did one of the stock orders; it was quick, clear, and concise. I really appreciated all of the email follow ups as well--order confirmation, delivery receipt confirmation (with picture; the flowers were beautiful and as pictured). My friend really appreciated them! I'm sure their direct customer service is just as good as my on-line experience; if the need arises, I will definitely use them again!

Mary Kay Holmes: I was thrilled with the arrangement created by York Flowers. Their on line interface does not oversell. The creation was fresh, and very personal. I wish that York Flowers were in the New Orleans Metro area. Thank you to the designers. You out did yourself!

Rina K: I used York Flowers for my wedding and I can't tell you how pleased we were with the arrangements that York Flowers put together for the ceremony and reception. The service was outstanding and the arrangements that they put together for the ceremony and the bouquets were even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I only had a vague idea of what I was looking for with the flowers and they exceeded my expectations and put together the most gorgeous flowers for the wedding. I can't recommend them enough.

Kelly Harrington: They saved the day for me for a last minute, rather high-maintenance request. I had been aimlessly calling other DC-area florists to no avail, and York Flowers completely knocked it out of the park. The orchid arrangement was gorgeous, exactly what we asked for! They also managed to squeeze in a same day delivery right before closing. Cannot recommend them enough!

Cori Ast: York Flowers handled our intimate wedding, preparing a beautiful bouquet and centerpieces. Jeff was so easy to work with and they have a perfectly artful eye. Highly recommend.

Lauren Victoria Cancienne: Highly recommend. The flowers were beautiful and they were delivered on time.

Anne Thacher: The flowers were delivered on time and the recipient loved them. I've attached a photo of the delivered bouquet. While they did not look quite as full or colorful as the website showed, that's likely based on the availability of specific flowers and colors. Overall great experience.

jill abelson: thank you York for crafting the perfect little arrangement for my best friend in D.C. fresh, beautiful and delivered exactly on time. she LOVED it. so happy to support a local florist!!!

Rachel Hanson: I ordered my wedding flowers here and they were absolutely stunning. From my first visit Anna was patient and helpful as I described my ideas (which were mostly inchoate). And the final result was so so beautiful. I highly recommend York for any big flower job.

She Loves Me Eckington: what do users think?


Austin Graff: A beloved local woman-owned business, this location in Eckington is their main warehouse/shop. Inside new development, the space is industrial and spacious. The shop is beautifully arranged with flowers (fresh and dried), plants, jewelry and other items for sale. The owner is very friendly and willing to guide you around the shop. We bought flowers from one of their location and they lasted for two weeks- way longer than any other shop in the city!

Dana Kappel: She Loves Me is such a lovely flower shop! I live very close to the store and was so excited when it opened! The aesthetic of the store is amazing, and I really love the more whimsical and flowly take that they have on their floral arrangements. I took the Flower Arranging Basics class over the weekend. It was such nice and enjoyable way to spend a Sunday! I would highly recommend the shop and class and can't wait to go again :)

Paula Porto: The Flower Arranging Basics Workshop was so much fun! Holley and everyone at She Loves Me welcomed our group with open arms. This was such a fun way to spend Happy Hour and we hope to be back soon!

Julie Thompson: I had a great experience using She Loves Me for our elopement and party. It was super seamless, and the flowers we received were also gorgeous and really added to our big day.

Kelsey Reese: Holley is incredibly knowledgeable about all things flowers! I learned so much from her at the workshop and tips from the trade that I can use in the future. I can’t wait to take another workshop in the future!! Thank you, Holley!

Tiffany Balmer: Thanks so much! for being amazing!!! the a la carte options are perfect and super helpful for last minute events. Guests were begging to take them home. Always great working with you all!!! thanks!!
Response: Yayayayyyy we had the most fun making these. We love working with you and hope to collaborate again soon! xo

Jan Lazny: We sent flowers from your shop to our daughter. Excellent flowers and excellent customer service!!! We would highly recommend your shop!

Rachel Sinderbrand: Love this place! Very happy to have their cheery storefront in our neighborhood. Looking forward to taking a class here as well.

Alexandra M. Dickinson: Easy delivery, beautiful bouquet. My absolute go to.

Caruso Florist & Flower Delivery: what do users think?


Anna Ramsey: Caruso Florist helped me out in a pinch! They were able to put together four beautiful table centerpieces for my wedding with only 3 weeks notice. I brought in the vases, told Steve my vision, and he/his team delivered! The flowers were gorgeous and my vases were very well taken care of. His prices are VERY reasonable for this area. I highly recommend calling Caruso's and talking to Steve about florals needed for any event! You won't regret it.
Response: Thank you so much, Anna! We're so glad to hear we could help you make your vision for your wedding come to life, and we're happy that you loved how the floral arrangements turned out. Congratulations again to you and your new spouse, and we wish you all the best! - Caruso Florist

Karen Swindell: I have been a customer of Caruso Florist for over 10 years and the flower arrangements are always beautiful! Caruso Florist customer service is awesome and they deliver to Capitol Heights, MD. l find ordering Caruso flower arrangements easy. Because I tell them the occasion and let the highly trained staff put together the most amazing flower arrangements. I spoke with the owner on several times and he offered good ideas. My family, friends, and co-workers love Caruso flower arrangements. Once I ordered an exotic flower arrangement which included the bird of paradise and my mother still talks about the flower arrangement. I highly recommend Caruso Florist.
Response: Thank you so much, Karen! It's always such a pleasure to work with you, and we're so happy to hear you always enjoy our floral products and services. We appreciate your loyalty, and we look forward to working with you again soon! - Caruso Florist & Flower Delivery

E C Wallman: I called on Saturday and spoke with a representative to place my "Birthday Balloons" order. The Balloons were pretty expensive...I had ordered balloons on Tuesday for delivery; these I was picking up. When I got there, I found that the young lady had placed my order incorrectly...hence why it was so expensive. While disappointed, because I thought I was pretty clear about what I wanted, I brought the balloons to my office. Today, I return to the office to find ALL of the latex balloons deflated, laying on the chair! It has been just 24 hours since I purchased these balloons--I would expect that these would stay inflated for at least a couple to few days. I am very disappointed...as these are a gift for someone who had a terrible "actual" birthday and I was trying to brighten his spirits--I don't think deflated balloons will do the trick! He is coming to my office on Tuesday to pick up these sad little balloons. I guess I will have our receptionist cut off the latex balloons and HOPEFULLY the Mylar balloons will still be inflated. Not what I would expect from Caruso.
Response: Hi. Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We're sorry to hear that the arrangement you received did not meet your expectations. We can confirm that the balloon bouquet you ordered was a mix of latex and mylar balloons, and while mylar balloons can last for days, latex ones can only last about 8 to 10 hours. We take pride in providing only top-quality products for your specific needs, and would have been more than happy to recommend another type of arrangement to better suit your needs. We hope this clears things up with you, and we hope we get a chance to provide you the excellent services and floral designs we are known for. Stay safe! -Caruso Florist

Ron Moses: For those with loved ones interred at Arlington, Caruso’s is a veteran owned florist with a very excellent record and quality, much better than any other in the area, and can do a regular or scheduled service to Arlington. I first found Caruso’s a year ago when we needed a florist quickly on a short notice to produce a number of bouquets for my father, MgySgt/SgtMaj Herbert Moses, who passed away Nov 5th 2020. Not only did they do an exemplary job, they did so with care and speed. It was such a great job, that I have a standing order of flowers to be delivered every two weeks to my father at Arlington. I was originally concerned that Arlington groundskeepers would remove the flowers after a few days and was super surprised to discover the flowers are still there after a week (see below). I’m not affiliated with Caruso, they don’t pay me anything, and they didn’t ask me to write a review. I just read the last guy’s review complaining about Latex balloons not lasting a weekend, and anyone with kiddos knows that they don’t last but a couple days esp when it’s cold out. Not fair of a review for a truly great florist (and not a balloon shop). Thank you so much everyone at Caruso’s for honoring my father with so much care.
Response: Hi, Ron! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. It is always a pleasure to help you with your floral needs for your father. We'll be sure to let the team know just how much you appreciated all their hard work. Thank you for your support and loyalty, and we hope to continue serving you the best way we can. - Caruso Florist

Geawna Hernandez: I ordered flowers for my grandma and her friend while they were on vacation in Washing DC. It was also harder on me since I've never been to the area let alone know anything about florist in the area. They made it SO EASY! Everything from placing the order, to delivery... was great! It showed up right on time and looked exactly like the picture I wanted. I would definitely recommend this place to any local or even a tourist like me.
Response: Hey Geawna, thank you so much for the rave review! It was our pleasure to help you pick out the perfect floral arrangement for your grandma and her friend, and we hope they loved it as much as we enjoyed making it for them. Thank you for trusting us, and if you ever need our assistance again in the future, feel free to contact us again. - Caruso Florist

Donna Williams: Caruso’s worked with me to create the perfect arrangement for my dear friend’s funeral. During a time when I was devastated by his passing, Rhonda was amazingly patient and assisted me in creating an arrangement that symbolized our relationship. Thank you!!
Response: Hi Donna, thank you so much for the kind review! It was our honor to help you during this difficult time. Stay safe, and we hope we can serve you in the future on happier occasions. - Caruso Florist

Sherry Swerdlow: I needed flowers in a hurry and this place didn’t disappoint! I ordered on a Friday night late, and they were delivered at noon on Saturday. They were even more beautiful than the photos on website. The recipient called me twice, once to thank me and say how gorgeous they were, and again the next day to say they were the most beautiful flowers she’s ever received!!
Response: Hey Sherry, thank you so much for the 5-star review! We're glad you had such a lovely experience with us. We appreciate your business, and we look forward to working with you again soon! - Caruso Florist

Linwood B Carter: Caruso Florist is dependable, reliable and consistently accurate. The gift basket I ordered was fresh and exactly as advertised. The delivery was prompt and executed during inclement weather. And as usual, I expeditiously received email confirmation of the delivery. I will continue to use Caruso Florist because of their outstanding service.
Response: Hi there! Thank you so much for your 5-star review. It’s the kind of service we always aim for and we’re really pleased we met all your expectations. We look forward to serving you again soon. - Caruso Florist

Sean McCain: Ordered florals for a corporate event and they were gorgeous! So many guests commented on them and the florist was easy to work with. Their prices were reasonable and delivery to the venue was on-time. I will definitely be using them again when I'm doing another event in DC.
Response: Hey Sean, thank you so much for the 5-star review! We're glad you had such a lovely experience with us. We appreciate your business, and we look forward to working with you again soon! - Caruso Florist

Ellen McCrea: Update with further info: Order Info: Order # 66522 Received confirmation email from Caruso Florist and Flowers The quick delivery and quality of the flowers were excellent. However I specifically ordered the Blue Sapphire Deluxe because of the blue and white flowers advertised as they were for a Johns Hopkins University graduate. Unfortunately there were NO blue flowers in the arrangement at all. I am unable to attend my daughter's graduation next week because I was suddenly called to AZ to care for my terminally ill mother. I'm sad that I can't be there to celebrate my daughter's hard work and to have the flowers be wrong was so disappointing.
Response: Hi Ellen, thank you for taking the time to raise your concerns with us. We're very sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience with your floral order. Upon checking with our team, however, our records do not show any orders with your name as the sender or recipient. If this was made through a 3rd party order gatherer or florist, then it would have come with instructions of the order request and we would follow those instructions or relay information that we do not have the flowers requested. We hope this clears things up for you. We take customer feedback and satisfaction very seriously, and we would love to know more about your order and experience so we can make things right for you. Please feel free to give us a call at your earliest convenience so we can discuss the situation further. Thank you, and we hope we hear from you soon. - Caruso Florist

Lee's Flower And Card Shop Inc: what do users think?


Mike Hess: Ordered a bouquet online, delivered to our building, for my wife's birthday. It looks amazing! The flowers are exactly what I selected and the vase is solid as well. I'm very happy with the purchase.

Anthony Montgomery: Was in D.C. to attend an amazing party. One of the standouts about the party were the flowers. As I wanted to send the host some flowers as a thank you, I decided to go to Lee's Flower Shop. My friend/host and I both thought the flowers were simple, elegant and beautiful.

Sebastian L. Cooper: Ordered a small arrangement as my partner started as a teacher in a new school. Gave a base flower and some colors and they NAILED THE REST. It was beautiful and my partner was elated! It was even completed way before I was scheduled to pick it up and resting in a fridge. Excellent service and will be using them again!

Samantha Tausendschoen: We ordered the white rose arrangement and used the flowers for our bouquets and the greenery for our tables. It looked fabulous! The roses were big and gorgeous, and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Jacob Rosenbacher: Hurts me to put this business on blast — it’s local and in a difficult industry. Moreover, this specific business has overcome generification. However, I had the worst flower shop experience of my life here. I waited to speak to a sales associate and I was mocked when I gave my description of the flowers. Not once, not twice, but three times. The colors I was looking for “earthy tones” are “exactly what all flowers” look like… fair. However, I was pretty understanding but it was said very harshly and not humorously. It was nothing but pretentious especially from this preppy older white dude in a cardigan. I then tried to describe it again, “something very natural looking and duller tones”. I was unceremoniously met with “all flowers are natural”… thanks dude. Suffice to say it was rude, 100 dollars for a smaller bouquet, and the selection was terrible compared to all other flower shops I’ve visited. Btw to the guy who reads this, I’ve walked into a dozen other flower shops… no one else thinks this is a poor description.
Response: We are so very sorry to learn of your unpleasant experience and will definitely get to the bottom of this! This is unacceptable. Thank you for calling it to our attention.

Mieko Hobbs: Beautiful flowers, great service, and quick shipping. I will be ordering from Lee’s again!

Joanna Obuzor: I purchased flowers for my friend's birthday. She never received the flowers. Lee's said they were delivered; she works from home and nothing came that day. When I called to let them know, no refund was offered. I'm out over $100 and my friend didn't get the gift.

Daria Kirilenko: Nice people and pretty flowers. But the peonies were $16 a stem. Still decided to treat myself and got a dozen. Flowers sadly lasted only 2 and a half days and that’s with me cutting the stems and changing the water. Just sad…

Parker Asmann: Lovely flower shop that’s been around for decades. Grade-A experience. I’d recommend anyone looking for flowers and a beautiful bouquet to go to Lee’s. I also picked up a nice candle and card to accompany the bouquet. Wonderful service as well. I had a great chat with the woman working.

Maria Skirk: Disappointed with the quality of flowers and choice of greenery in my bouquet. No taste. Not worth the money.

House of Flowers: what do users think?


SHEENA BAILEY WILKERSO: This place is absolutely lovely. They have a variety of many plants and flowers. From the moment I stepped into the store the employees greeted me and they met my need. Honestly, the store is so comforting and so is the service here. It was worth every penny and I definitely will be back!!! The flowers are sooo beautiful; I just know my mom will love them
Response: Thank you so much Sheena! It was such a pleasure to create your bouquets :)!

Tori S: House of Flowers does it all - from minimalist bouquets to vases of huge, whimsical flowers and greens, I always know I'm getting something completely custom each time. Their flowers also last AWHILE with a little home care! I really couldn't recommend a better flower shop in the DC area.

sherry zion: Had the best professional yet friendly experience ever! Michael and Mary are so friendly, they made me this beautiful vase with colorful and gorgeous flower arrangement for a dinner. It was last minute and they did it so elegantly yet so fast. Would be back again soon

SHAUN BAKER: M and M Michael and Mary are phenomenal. I came to House of Flowers to get birthday flowers for my dear friend Wendy. Beautiful tulip arrangement!! Go see them often! They’re the best! Thank you Michael and Mary! I will be back... Shaun

Owen Benons: Mary is incredible and extremely sweet and accommodating. The selection of flowers is top notch. They were able to expedite my order. The flower selection is second to none and the house dog is adorable. What a great place 10/10 would recommend, competitive pricing as well tell them Owen sent you!

barcemayne11: My go-to flower shop that never ceases to amaze me with their beautiful bouquets. I’m thankful for their amazing staff and the work they do. Mary is a sweetheart and gives the best costumer service while Michael and Uma are true artists! All I have to do is tell them the occasion and my budget and they create the most beautiful works of art. Gentlemen, make the right decision and get your significant others an arrangements from House of Flowers. You’re supporting a local business and you’ll be blown away

Jennifer L: Had a last-minute mission to find a boutonniere for my daughter’s prom date, and called House of Flowers since it was around the corner from my office. They could not have been nicer and were so happy to make one for me in practically no time - and it was absolutely stunning! I will definitely be ordering flowers from them in the future.

Jessica Kidane: This place has been a lifesaver for me the last few weeks when I needed to grab quick, last minute gifts. Their chocolate selection is very good and they make beautiful arrangements. Most of all, their customer service is top notch. They once delivered a last minute arrangement on Valentine’s Day for my boss’s wife with detailed instructions. They saved the day (not to mention a tremendous headache on my end) and followed the instructions to the letter. I’ve never been disappointed with them!

Amanda Cassidy: The staff at House of Flowers was incredibly patient and knowledgeable about their flowers. They walked me through different price points and arrangements, and made sure I had what I wanted at a great price when I left. Highly recommend!

J. Madison: Mary was absolutely wonderful waking me through selecting a beautiful arrangement for my Valentines Day plan. The pic below is just a starter. We’ve made arrangements to go big for actual V-Day. Thx so much!

Volanni: what do users think?


Donna MacAlester: Mother's Day Bust- My husband ordered flowers for Mother's Day. They were delivered on Friday and half were dead by Sunday. So disappointing. Asked for the florist special, paid extra, tipped well upfront- looks like it was the left overs. I know Mother's Day can mean that a florist is overwhelmed, but this was an $85 arrangement that could have been $20 from trader joe's. After we reached out, they were rude in text and didn't just take responsibility for a bad arrangement made of half wilted flowers. Even after sending photos they requested. I believe 100% in local florists, but this place isn't it. Find another place to go that is thoughtful about all costumers. Please see below the response from the florist for further indication of how they treat and think of their customers. I guess if you can't afford a $350 arrangement, then they aren't interested in your business.
Response: There are always two sides to every story. Donna MacAlester seemed impossible to please. And she was beyond rude to us, without manners. Her husband spent $85 for a Designer’s Choice arrangement (which literally states “Let Us Do Our Thing) but in the Special Instructions advised us that his wife needed peonies, ranunculus. This is not possible for the budget but we made it work using the alternative of English roses option he also included. The arrangement was beautiful when it left our studio and we delivered it quickly to their nearby home. Donna then emailed us very late at night with her initial complaint. She was upset the flowers were not peonies, ranunculus. We responded via email quickly and were as clear as possible with why her budget could not include peonies, ranunculus, etc. Those are premium flowers during Mother’s Day week and she didn’t have the budget. However, her husband also included an English rose option. We achieved a look we were proud of with this English rose option, along with garden spray roses, and stock. We attached pictures of how the arrangement looked when it left our studio minutes before delivering to her nearby home. We requested a picture from her to show how it looked now in her home. That is our policy and common in the industry. We didn’t hear back from Donna for 2 days. That is outside of our normal 24 hour return window, but we were still offering a replacement arrangement. Then out of the blue, Donna just became very inappropriate towards us. We were not combative in any way and offered to give her a free replacement arrangement. But Donna insisted on demeaning us, texting us relentlessly. The texts stated “you think you are fancy but you are not” and “you obviously aren’t in touch any more.” She went on to claim she would’ve done a better job if she got cheap flowers from Trader Joe’s and designed the arrangement herself. We’re a well established florist in DC. We’ve done countless high profile events. We just did the White House Correspondents’ ABC event last week and have a busy event schedule this week… along with many “person to person” arrangement orders for repeat customers. So when someone like Donna says she could do a better job buying cheap Trader Joe’s flowers and designing herself, we encourage her to do that next time. She and her husband are blocked and not allowed to order from us in the future. We went into this business to create beauty and make people happy. We don’t tolerate when people are obnoxious and demeaning. It’s not acceptable.

Elaine Tenner: Found them online. But checked out their work on Facebook and instagram. I realized I had viewed their work at the Ritz Carlton in DC. So, I checked to make sure they would deliver to my nephew and his wife, then used the online service and the arrangement looked like exactly what I ordered!

Aneta Tomdio: Absolutely gorgeous arrangement and worth the price. Volanni did an excellent job with La Dolce Vita bouquet, and the delivery communication was A+!

Ruth Futrovsky: Gorgeous flowers. We were on a budget, so I chose three bouquets and they were so beautiful they were enough to make the space stunning. Now I'm spoiled. Love this florist.

Tom Nielsen: Excellent experience with Volanni! I live in Australia and wanted to send flowers to our daughter recently moved to Washington DC. Not knowing anyone there I took a chance on a Google search and ordered through Volanni. The flowers were beautiful, the service just perfect, and the ease of ordering through a great selection was a real pleasure. I definitely won't need to search for florists in Washington DC again, it's Volanni for me!

Laila Awar Shouhayib: I needed an extraordinary bouquet of flowers for a dear friend and I was told I had many florists to choose from in DC. But I knew they were all wrong. I had only one choice: Volanni! I knew his work not only from different friends but also from my volunteer work at the Smithsonian, specifically the Freer/Sackler museum. Every week Volanni made a beautiful arrangement for them and each was a piece of art. The beautiful bouquet I ordered was not made by a florist, but by an artist. The orchids, the succulents, the many choice of flowers were lovely, exotic, textural and beautifully displayed. It took my breath away. I will order from no other place from now on. Thank you, Volanni. You are an artist.

Donna Williams: Great personalized service & beautiful flowers. This is my new go to place in DC. Thank you,,

Patricia Proctor: Beautiful arrangement that looked even better in person than in the photos. Really appreciate the care that went into this as it was for a friend going through an incredibly difficult time. These flowers brightened their day. Will definitely order from here again.

Rosy Galvan: Beautiful work! The person I sent them to was so happy. There was an origami crane attached to my note, a lovely succulent, and the flowers were robust and stunning.

Zara Korutz: Wow! So happy with the modern and fresh arrangement for a special person in my life. The customer service was above and beyond what I would have imagined. I will use again and tip bigger next time for the wonderful experience. Thank you, thank you!

Bloom Fresh Flowers: what do users think?


Jessica Holmes: Please dont use this company. They show you one thing online and send something else. They left the flowers on the porch with the proper packaging. The wind we high and the vase was cheap and the arrangement was blown on the porch. They refused to rectify the situation. When you pay top dollar for an arrange it and don't receive that arrangement due to their negligence. They should be willing to do something.
Response: Hi Jessica its John with Bloom Fresh Flowers. I did reach out to the sender this morning and he informed me of the issue. I let him know that we would make a new arrangement and deliver to you. He is to contact you with a time that you will be there so we don't have to leave the arrangement outside. See you soon. Thank You!!

Renuka C: Another gorgeous arrangement from Bloom! Fresh flowers, pretty arrangement, eye-catching - lovely! 4/25/19 - OMG! A huge arrangement from Bloom! Measures 2’x2’! The entire office can smell the lilies, roses and lilac. So fresh and beautiful. Thanks to hubby for remembering our 27th wedding anniversary. ❤️❤️

Jana Philippa Parenti: Caroline and her team made our wedding dreams come true! They are artists that created beautiful unique flower set ups that really exceeded our expectations. They were the perfect vendor from first contact to communication to pick up. Thank you so much Bloom Fresh Flowers for making our big day extra special!

sharon kwan: I have used Bloom Fresh Flowers to send arrangements to my sister on 2 special occasions. Being that I use to be a florist, the flowers are fresh, elegantly and methodically designed, and excellent value. Plus very professional and friendly phone service. Being that I am not there in person the phone service left me with a good impression that my order is well cared for.

Daniel Mendoza: Lace was great for taking me in last minute and making me a floral arrangement for my wife on Valentine’s Day! Flowers were fresh but balloons 🎈 were trashed on the 2nd day. Anyways, no major complaints and I’m sure they were probably old or something but the people here were way too nice! 👍🏽 I highly recommend this place if you are looking for flowers.

Sean Doran: We had an absolutely amazing experience at this lovely flower shop. Angel went above and beyond the call of duty by engaging both of my daughters in the experience of picking out and arranging the flowers. Who would have guessed that stopping in a flower shop with be the favorite part of a four year old's day? Will 100% be back!

Pam Burton: Outstanding service and a beautiful arrangement!!! I placed an order and was promised service within 24 hours. However, delivery was completed within 2 hours!! THANK YOU BLOOM for sending the delivery quickly!! I will definitely be using your services in the future!! The recipient LOVED the arrangement!!
Response: Thank you so much Pam! We are so happy to hear that you and the recipient loved the arrangement. We look forward to working with you again soon :).

Daniel K: I needed an apology bouquet for my girlfriend. Knowing nothing about bouquets, I showed the folks here a list of the flowers she likes and gave them a budget. In 20 minutes they put together a bouquet that my girlfriend called the nicest she's ever received. Can't recommend them enough.

S WB: Bloom made a lovely wrist corsage that was elegant and stylish for prom. They made it day-of and were very gracious and helpful. Highly recommend this florist!
Response: We are so glad we were able to help you out with the wrist corsage and that you were happy with it! We appreciate your kind words!

Jessie Dalrymple: I've never received such a sad bunch of sunflowers - all closed up and wilted. The vase is almost twice as big as the flower bunch so it's disproportioned. If they don't have adequate blooms to make a specific bouquet on a given day, they should take that option off their web site temporarily. What I received is nowhere close to the appropriate value for the money that was spent on it. Just another reminder not to bother getting arranged flowers. Bummer. [Edit: I'll give them 1 more star because they did tell the purchaser that it wouldn't be sunflowers but a similar flower. And the blooms did last a good 2.5 weeks. But I stand by it being an under-proportioned arrangement and not worthy of the cost.

Petals Ribbons & Beyond: what do users think?


Michelle Chabbott: Petals Ribbons and Beyond delivered the most stunning array of flowers I’ve ever received. The vibrancy of the blooms, the size of each blossom and the arrangement were beyond compare..I send many flowers and used many florists but Petals Ribbons and Beyond is superlative and an inspiration for other florists and gift givers. Please see photos. Honored to have met them!

Laura B: My boyfriend lives out of state and sends me flowers occasionally. Each time he has used Petals Ribbons & Beyond and not only have the arrangements been beautiful and lasted, the customer service has been equally amazing! I stopped past the shop to say thank you in person today and the owner was so sweet. I will definitely be using them for any of my future floral needs!

Alene Anello: These people are the best! Beautiful flowers. SO friendly, responsive, and trusting. They went above and beyond to get my flowers delivered the same day, even though their normal delivery had already gone out for the day. I will always use this company if I have occasion to buy flowers in the DC or Maryland Area. Thank you Petals Ribbons and Beyond!!!

Pam Clark: I called late in the morning to have a birthday bouquet delivered to my daughter the same day. The lady on the phone was kind and super helpful; I asked them to just create a colorful bouquet for me. She made sure the bouquet was created in time to be on the delivery truck. She texted me a picture of the bouquet, then let me know the time it was delivered. See the picture from my daughter with the following comment: "It is a major wow; absolutely one of the most stunning bouquets I've seen. So colorful!"

Deidre Charles: I ordered a boutonniere for my daughter's prom date from another floral establishment. It was not even close to what was pictured on the website and the flower looked like it wouldn't make it through the first dance. I frantically looked online and found Petals Ribbons & Beyond. I called to see if they could accommodate my need for a boutonniere. It was Friday afternoon two hours before my daughter's date planned to arrive and 30 minutes before Petals closed. I spoke with Ms. Sara and she was amazing. She told me to just come right over so she could help. I arrived to meet her and her assistant along with a couple of her cheerleaders😉. Ms. Sara saved the day with a simple yet elegant single white rose boutonniere with a ribbon to match my daughter's dress. I had a chance to chat with her and learn that we both attended Spelman College. It was truly devine intervention 💙

Deborah Pinckney: I wanted to send a special floral arrangement to my daughter, “just because”. I called this florist and was greeted by Sarah. I told her what I wanted and she told me that she would take care of it. Because this was the first time I had used this florist, Sarah told me she would text me a picture of the arrangement before it was delivered. I couldn’t believe it!! The next day I received a text with a picture of the arrangement and I was VERY pleased!! My daughter was thrilled!! I highly recommend this florist!! Thank you Sarah!

Kathy Tolson: This Florist is Awesome 👏🏽, the Flowers are fresh, arrangements are well made, beautiful and fresh and service is outstanding. I love the fact of how they will send you a pic of the funeral arrangement made the day prior so that you can approve. Their delivery service is always on time during the Pandemic. This helps make things go a lot smoother. Thank you ❤️ Petals Ribbons & Beyond Florist!

Jane Blue: I am touched beyond words by the experience I just had with this florist. Because of the volume of orders for funerals they had just received and the distance from the shop, Sarah said that she could not deliver flowers to the church, but she called a friend of hers that lived close and was going to the same funeral, and arranged for her to pick up the flowers and take them with her. She is even sending a picture of the arrangement to me once it is finished. Wow. Sometimes blessings come in unexpected ways. I am so thankful and hope that this review helps generate more business for this gem of a floral shop!

Deb Kasunic: Do no let this florist shop go by unnoticed! My in-laws in Ohio ordered a Christmas arrangement for us. I used to own an art and artisan gallery and tend to be a bit fussy. The flowers were gorgeous! My recommendation: support Small Local Businesses, especially when they are stellar in every way! You will not be disappointed in your arrangement from Petals, Ribbons and Beyond!

robin ward: Last minute request for 150 balloons and even had the colors needed. Ms. Sarah - you made it happen. Thanks you again and again. I appreciate you and you will be my first choice in the future.

Roots and Blooms Flower Shop: what do users think?


America Larkins: I’m in CA and ordered a Eucalyptus bundle for my friend in DC. Ordering was easy and it was delivered the next day! Super happy with my purchase, the text updates and delivery pic they sent me to confirm it arrived. Thank you Roots And Bloom, it was a gorgeous arrangement!! I’ll be using you again!
Response: Thank you for taking your time to leave us a wonderful review.

Mac Hamilton: Truly the most wonderful people - gorgeous arrangements at an accessible price and great delivery service within DC. I had a delivery snafu recently and the delivery person went above and beyond to ensure the bouquet was delivered properly. I am gladly keeping Roots & Blooms as my go-to flower shop in DC!

Tamar Prince: I highly recommend Roots and Blooms! The process of ordering and confirming the delivery was seamless. The flowers that were delivered were just as they appeared on the website, which offers quite a unique and lovely array of selections. The bouquets are also affordable. It felt great to support a deserving local business while also making my friend's quarantine birthday special. I can't recommend their services enough!
Response: Hello Tamar, Thanks so so much for the great review. 🙏

Mike Jobbins: UPDATED. Just dropped in, and they have a new café menu, run by an Ethiopian/Japanese couple. Ethiopian coffee & homemade sushi join sandwiches and smoothies. Still relaxed, local and delicious. Recommend. Stopped in for a cup of coffee and flowers for my wife. Relaxed, sunny & friendly spot. Reasonable prices, too!
Response: Thank you very much for the review

Bryan Bierman: Great service, very friendly and the flowers are beautiful! We order from Roots and Blooms often and they never disappoint. Thank you!

Ryan Hand: This place is a true gem! It is a beautiful space that blends flower shop with, tea/ coffee house and a well curated gift shop. Ohh, and the coffee is good too.
Response: Thanks for the great review

Shervin Sepehri: We moved to Petworth 2 years ago and my wife and I only get our flowers from Roots and Blooms. Amazing quality, great floral designs, and great customer service!!!! If you live in Petworth you have to try them!
Response: thank you guys for your wonderful review :)

Margaret Luth: My best friend moved to DC for school and I really wanted to make her first Valentines Day away from home special. I found Roots and Blooms flower shop online and chose the florist choice bouquet. The flowers that were delivered were absolutely gorgeous! I could not have asked for such a beautiful bouquet. Thank you, Roots and Blooms!
Response: thank you for your great review.

Thea Tucker: The company is amazing. I live out of state and wanted to send my friend birthday flowers, the one I wanted was sold out. The lovely lady made me something and sent pictures to make sure I was happy. They even drove in the snow the same day to deliver. This company made my day and put a smile on my friends face. You will not be disappointed, if you place a order.
Response: Hello Tucker, thanks so so much for the great review. We are very happy to hear about great experience our customers had with us.

Ari Westreich: It came in a beautiful vase, and the flowers were gorgeous. And they smelled amazing! Also, the packaging was much more sustainable than other places I've seen – it didn't include any plastic.
Response: thank you so much! we make great effort in reducing plastic packaging in our flower bouquet.

Ultra Violet Flowers: what do users think?


Kirsten Sherk: Ultra Violet was recommended to me by a friend as a talented and well priced florist. They did not disappoint! I gave them a budget and told them to use their discretion to make a colorful arrangement for a colleague. She was so delighted with her bouquet. It really brightens up her room.

Sarah Andrews: The BEST place to gift a bouquet from. My order was completed quickly and the arrangement actually looked full and beautiful unlike most florists. Highly recommend as a last minute gift if you’re just stumped as to what to get. Who doesn’t love fresh flowers?

Amanda Rose: I’ve been here twice now. Each time I just wanted a small arrangement for my house/for myself, around $40. The staff has been so kind and let me pick out whatever and mix and match what I want. The pricing is incredibly fair (other florists in the area have increased prices an absurd amount) and their selection is like nothing else! They have the best seasonal colors and keep with the trends. Other florists in the area look like what you see on 1800 florists and can’t compare to their product.

Emma Westerman: This shop is fantastic! Needed a quick turnaround flower delivery to Georgetown Hospital - they built something in the morning and delivered it that afternoon. $122 for this beautiful bouquet! Will definitely be back for all my local flower needs :)

Susan Klock: Sadly, I needed to send flowers to friends in D.C. whose son died over the weekend. I called Ultra Violet today, Monday, at 11:48 a.m. A stunning arrangement was delivered to them at 2:18 p.m. today. Everything about this transaction was 5 star. And, I did get what I paid for, a lush, beautiful and creative expression of love. Thank you so much from Florida. Susan

Jessica Cain: As a planner, I'm always looking for service providers that do great work! I found that in Ultra Violet Flowers! The bouquet and door decor they provided for my most recent wedding were so beautiful. My bride was so happy! Thank you again! I look forward to working with you in the future.

Alexandra Gilliland: Best flower shop in Washington, DC! The flowers are absolutely gorgeous, they're easy to work with, and they go above and beyond.

TRNimen: I called Ultra Violet Flowers a day or so ahead of a memorial service, and they delivered this beautiful arrangement that was placed on the chapel's alter along with several other arrangements. This one stood out and was placed in the center.

Elsa Rein: The service was amazing. First time a flower shop exceeded my expectations. My mom s 97th birthday arrangement was the best ever. Thank you and keep up the great customer service. Thank you, Elsa Rein

Justin Kaufman: Ultra Violet Flowers is amazing! Christian was an absolute delight to work with. He was incredibly helpful at sourcing beautiful flowers for me even when they were out of season and he was extremely knowledgable about their care! Truly was the best possible experience I could have had! They all went the extra mile to make sure the arrangement was special and beautiful! Highly recommend!

Park Florist: what do users think?


Jacqulyn Henry: Park Florist is incredible! Both times I've ordered from them, I called same day requesting flowers. They were happy to accommodate my very last minute request. They asked such thoughtful questions about the recipient and what flowers to include/exclude. Jeanne was kind enough to send me an email after my latest order with a photo of the flowers they delivered to my friend. I've never had a florist go this extra mile. I will always go to them for my local flower needs.
Response: Many thanks for your kind review, we're so pleased you and your friend were happy with the flowers!

Tyler Miller: Absolutely perfect all the way around. This florist not only offered same day delivery, they also gave me the option of a hand written card, chocolates, and more. Their vast selection of beautiful bouquets made it a breeze to pick the perfect anniversary gift for my wife. In addition to perfect scheduling and on time delivery they went above and beyond the standard for great customer service by sending me a photo of the finished product and hand writing the message I provided for the card that I ordered. It was a nice touch and a eye watering surprise for my wife when she came home to find the bouquet waiting. All in all 10/10 would order again.
Response: Wow, Tyler! Thank you for your rave review!

Kathy: My sister recommended Park Florist to me while we were both looking for flowers to purchase for my mothers birthday. When they came in they were absolutely stunning so I thought to buy another bouquet but for my sister's graduation the week after. Both bouquets were absolutely wonderful and arranged so beautifully. I actually accidentally bought the wrong bouquet and emailed Jeanne about it and she was so kind to help me out and re-order the correct bouquet I wanted for my sister! If I ever need flowers again in the future I know I will most definitely be buying them from Park Florist. Their flowers arrangements are amazing.

Greg Russell: Great customer experience, beautiful flowers!! I called Park Florist on the Friday of Mother's Day weekend to get flowers delivered to my Mom. They were super helpful and patient on the phone even though I could hear how busy they were in the background. Never made me feel rushed even for a second and helped me settle on a beautiful arrangement. Mom was very happy! Five days later, she's still sending me pics of the arrangement and gushing over how gorgeous it is. Highly recommend!

Elizabeth Forbes Wallace: I've ordered wonderful arrangements for my son's restaurant, myself, and various celebrations. However, this week I ordered flowers for condolence for the first time. The customer service rep was very patient with my hesitation re choosing the right colors, etc. and more than helpful regarding making sure someone was home for the delivery. My friend, the recipient, thought they were very beautiful and then called me and was able to talk about her feelings.

Janet Bodner: Park Florist delivered a beautiful bouquet to our friend minutes (I think) after they got our order. The photograph looks very much like the arrangement on their site, and our friend said it's lovely. They were very professional; the site was easy to use; it took minutes to complete the transaction.

L M: Yet another absolutely stunning arrangement provided by Park Florist! I ordered on a Friday for a Saturday (prior to Easter) delivery and everything worked seamlessly. The photo, both from the florist and from my mother-in-law, displayed a beautiful arrangement just like what was advertised online.
Response: Yay! Thank you!

S Henderson: We ordered from the other side of the country for a funeral. They did a very nice job on the 2 plants we ordered. The one plant did not have a flower (as in the picture) but it was still a nice plant. They emailed us a picture of the 2 plants so we knew what was delivered. I really appreciated that.

Aranya Tomseth: Park Florist is amazing and I will definitely be using them again and again. I live in Chicago and I had flowers delivered to my friend in D.C. for her birthday (I ordered them the night before). The bouquet was stunning and she absolutely loved it. I also appreciate that Park Florist sends a picture of what they deliver. Fantastic experience all around!

Brian Galvin: Park Florist is my new go-to for all of my floral needs! The staff is friendly and helpful and the actual bouquets look better than the pictures! I would definitely recommend them for any occasion!

Minnesota Florist: what do users think?


Christopher Young: I called this florist on Thursday evening (12-16-21), after getting the funeral service church address for the following morning! I’m offering a three (3) star review because they did in fact deliver the flowers and our loved one received them. The real reason for the three stars is based on the final floral arrangement. I’ll post pictures and let you all decide if this was a $130 arrangement!! I think this was purchased at a local Harris Tetter and dropped off at the church, LOL. At the end of the day, I’m guessing it was the thought…haha. Whew! I’ve sent flowers for less and the design, the attention to detail was stunning (of course, at the hands of another florist)!!! Won’t call this florist again. Based on my conversation with the elder who answered, I don’t think they read these reviews and it’s obvious they don’t care!! I’m just saying…but where else could I have vented? I don’t even reside in the DC METRO area, but I needed flowers sent at the last minute. Ok, blessings to all on sending flowers.

Carvangeline Miller: I ordered flowers for someone special to me for their birthday. I called an placed the order by phone. Didn't know what kind of arrangements I wanted I just trust that it would be beautiful. When I saw the arrangements it was breathtaking. It was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you everything. Carvangeline

Camille Adebayo: If I could give a no star rating I would. Besides the flowers being delivered at 9:55 p.m. when my husband was told that they would arrive before noon for our anniversary the flowers look wilted after 3 days and not a full 72 hours since being delivered. My husband called several times throughout the day and was told that they were out for delivery. No wonder they're wilted. I've called to see if a refund or new arrangement can be sent but no one answers the phone. Don't spend your money here!

S L: This is THE WORSE FLOWER SHOP EVER with HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. My grandmother paid to have a flower arrangement done and delivered on March 1, 2022... the day before my grandfather's funeral to ensure it arrived on time. It DID NOT. On the day of (March 2, 2022) we got there early and there was no flower arrangement. My grandmother called to inquire and they were very rude to her from the start. Yelling saying ma'am it was delivered. She had them on speaker phone. I took the phone to handle it privately because people were starting to arrive and my grandmother was getting upset. Rightfully so, I mean she was at her husband's funeral and the lady had a nasty attitude. Absolutely NO conpassion. They couldn't get in touch with the delivery guy and did not have a clue of his whereabouts. The guy finally delivered the arrangement AFTER the service had started and people were in line. It was a nice arrangement.. the bow was a little wrinkled. SAVE YOURSELF the trouble and GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Sherry S. Ellis: I'm very pleased that I was able to reach this store for a same day rush order and it turned out just beautiful! I called when the clock hit 8am and they took my order and delivered by 10am. I am forever grateful for the service provided. Due to the lack of follow up communication and abruptness on the phone, I can't rate them any higher.

Tuesde Hines: I have never seen a flower shop you go in trash every were one lady was lay back in a recliner with a blanket & the other was sitting throwing stems on floor I ask for a bit k to look through very harsh the woman ask what you looking for I reply do you have a book she reply tell me what you want they try to charge me 70 dollars for a teddy bear small at that a rap around flower is what they call it No card No Vase I just bought the flowers $45 for it but then she said tax $47 Never again and unprofessional to me to had been there for 45years

Ama R.: I needed a Bouquet done last minute on a Sunday and delivered that same day.I decided to go with them and I don’t regret my decision one bit. The Bouquet was beautiful and was delivered in a timely manner. Everytime I called someone answered & was very nice. Thanks again! I will be returning when in your area.

Rodney Houston: I absolutely love this place!! My go to place for flowers for years. The owner is so accommodating and I think they're open 7 days a week. Never had a complaint or any issues ever. Deliveries always made when I requested within the time frame. Flowers are fresh and will last a while. The aroma from a rose arrangement will fill a banquet hall for days.

LaVanda Gaskins: I love to support black businesses but this company right here is horrible. Why they been in business for so long is absurd. I ordered flowers and paid in full for a funeral. First of all they delivered them in the middle of the service and not only that I ordered two different sets and only one was delivered. After the funeral when I called to let them know they was late and that they didn’t send my other set of flowers the owner in which lies to me and told me she was the Manager informed me there were no refunds! How when I didn’t receive what I paid for. After informing the owner that I would dispute it with my bank if she didn’t refund my card! Please take yur business elsewhere because when you already dealing with a death you don’t wanna have to deal with people and businesses like this.

Moleka Thomas-lee: I have had a bad experience the last three times I've given them my business. This was the last straw. They have been late delivering my last three arrangements. Two were for my nephews' funerals and one for a cousin's funeral. I've given this florist my business because they are black owned and very polite, but this is unprofessional. I paid $187 for my service and they showed up after the funeral. The owner only wanted to send me a free arrangement instead of refunding my money. I have to find another

Maha Zakari: Wow wow wow! So first of all when you step in the place smells AMAZING then you’re greeted by The friendliest faces :) I think the guy that arranges the flowers is named Chase and he is a talent! Trust him with your arrangement you won’t regret it
Response: Thanks so much...

Katherine Watter: I recently moved to Northern Virginia and wanted to find a local florist I could rely on for future gifts. Not knowing where to start, I used an online third-party service to place an order for myself for same-day delivery. I know this can be a gamble, as third-party sites often take huge percentages of the sale, leaving the small businesses to make do with a fraction of the budget. Royalty Flowers created this arrangement, and I couldn’t be happier with the product. The flowers are so fresh and fragrant, and the bouquet looks exactly like the one pictured on the third-party site (I was particularly excited for the vase!) The courier was also so polite and friendly. I will definitely be ordering from Royalty Flowers in the future, directly from them.
Response: Thank you so much for you kind words. We love this!!! This make us smile! Look forward to sending your future orders.

William Gaines: I've used Royalty Florist twice this month and each time they exceeded my expectations. 5 star quality and 5 star customer service. I definitely recommend them for all your floral needs. Thank you Tee for adding your special touch to my arrangements.
Response: It was our pleasure… Tee

Nathaniel Johnson: They were awesome and professional every step of the way. They helped me pick out the perfect flower arrangement for my girlfriends graduation. I was in awe by the beautiful colors and variety of flowers they assembled. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!
Response: It was an honor to serve you today...

Tatiana Dixon: Tee was wonderful to work with and the flower arrangement was absolutely stunning. My family experienced an unfortunate death and I was unable to attend the service from out of state. I reached out to Royalty Flowers, located in the area and Tee took care of everything. Great service and highly recommendable.
Response: Thank you Tatiana, it was an honor to be there in you and your family time of need.

Ria Witteman: Tee is a wonder! She made our wedding so beautiful and took a lovely venue from a 10/10 to an 11/10. We ordered a bridal bouquet, two mothers bouquets, boutonnieres, a table arrangement, and an arch decoration. I love beautiful flowers, but not very knowledgeable in the slightest. Tee did an amazing job talking me through what I liked and wanted and was able to magically create the most beautiful arrangements from my vague recommendations. She was phenomenally responsive and made sure everyone had all the information they needed (including a full list of the flowers she was planning to use). She was incredibly gracious when we had to first reschedule our 2020 wedding and eventually change our 2021 wedding to a small elopement with just our parents. She still delivered her absolute best and both sets of parents commented on how much they loved the flowers.
Response: humbled and honored

Surroundings Florist: what do users think?


Miguel Villazon: Awesome experience. Placed my order yesterday 9/29 and it arrived in a beautiful arrangement but 9/30 early in the day. The guy on the phone (don’t remember his name) was very helpful and patient and helped me achieve exactly what I wanted. Thanks for your good work and excellent customer service.

stephanie choi: Surroundings is such a quaint shop, and though they are small, they do amazing work. I stopped in the other day to get an arrangement and left with two gorgeous bouquets. Carlos arranged them by hand and trimmed the foliage so they were perfect to put in a vase just as they were. His customer service was outstanding- he even explained how to dry the hydrangeas so I can keep them long term. Highly recommend supporting this business!

Walt Nicholson: Awesome service. I’m less than 5 mins he made a beautiful bouquet at a decent price. Definitely recommend.

Tonni Henderson: Carlos helped me with an apartment warming plant/present for my daughter and fiancé, who moved during the holiday season. I live several states away and did not want to use a standard FTD florist/gift. They are plant lovers so my choice was to send a blooming plant they could enjoy for more than a year. The Amaryllis he chose is beautiful and is blooming for a second time. I will use this company again!

Marguerita Harding: I called and spoke with Carlos. He was very sweet and friendly. With my first time ordering flowers, for a funeral; he was very patient, explained my options, and offered suggestions. On the business end, when he said my transaction was processed, I instantly received a confirmation email of the transaction. I definitely would use their services again.

Anthony Okpagu: I’m in NY and he helped me deliver flowers on the same day in DC and they were so well made it was incredible! He really went the extra mile and I’m gonna be getting flowers thru this shop every time. I seriously can’t thank him enough

Lisa Clark- Young: I live in a different state from my BFF. I wanted to get her favorite flowers (tulips) for Mother’s Day. I called Surroundings l, spoke to Cynthia & she was very nice and professional, as well as the gentleman in the background. My gfriend picked up her flowers today & she loved it. She also sent me a picture of it & they put together a nice arrangement. Thank you Surrounding Florist. 👍🏼

Elizabeth Starr: This place is the best! I have never written a review of anyplace, and I felt compelled to do so because of the excellent, kind, and thoughtful service that I received. Carlos handled it all like a gentleman (even though I was a last minute order). He even sent me pictures of my order, to be sure I was pleased. He also contacted the owner (with no prompting on my part), to confirm the name of the plant. Thank you Surroundings Florist!

Jilian McGreen: Carlos at Surroundings recently did the bouquets for my wedding. His work was absolutely beautiful - even better than the photos I came with. The flowers were fresh and the prices were the best I found in the area. Highly recommended.

Claudia Alvarado: Love this flower shop for always having the most fresh beautiful flowers. Gorgeous arrangements for weddings , valentines and custom bouquet! Lovely customer service!

Helen Olivia Flowers: what do users think?


Ashley Davidson: A friend recommended Helen Olivia Flowers for our Washington, D.C. wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made! Rachel was absolutely incredible in designing beautiful arrangements that fit our budget, which included suggesting lots of greenery and gorgeous taper candles that fit the classic winter wedding style we were seeking. I had shared a few photos I found on Pinterest and she got back to me with the perfect proposal with accompanying inspiration photos to give us an idea of what our florals would look like. And day-of, I was blown away. From my bouquet (that smelled like Christmas!) to the boutonnières, centerpieces, and other arrangements, Helen Olivia's attention to detail is impeccable. I can't say enough amazing things. Neither can my mom, who burst into happy tears when she saw the reception decor that night. Rachel and team – Our day was perfect and you played an enormous role in that! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Response: Thank you so much for your glowing review, Ashley! We are so happy that you were pleased with our services. Congratulations to you and your partner!

Ren Helene: I had flowers delivered and they were so perfect! I usually don’t like sending flowers because I can’t guarantee they won’t be 1-800 flowers quality with carnations and cheap filler greenery. But they delivered them quickly and they used beautiful, fresh , quality flowers. I got a neutral arrangement and they were better than what was pictured on the website. I love them so so much!
Response: Hi Ren! Glad to hear you loved our arrangement! Thanks for the review!

Linda Aureli: The flowers for our event were perfect! The colors were beautiful and coordinated well with the decor of the venue. Looking forward to working with Charles again.
Response: Thank you so much, Linda! We're looking forward to working with you again!

Anne Henry: My mom suggested Helen Olivia and I ordered 3 bouquets for 3 moms (including her!) in my life. They arrived today (ordered them a day early) and they are the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. Really really really spectacular. Will definitely use her again.
Response: Thank you so much, Anne! We hope the three mother figures in your life truly enjoyed their beautiful arrangements. All the best to you!

Shannon Cherry: The flowers are always stunning and they have amazing customer service. My calls are returned immediately and they try everything to honor special requests. Tonight I forgot to select delivery and they came and delivered my workshop materials to my door after hours despite my error. I have loved the virtual workshops which have been a bright spot during Covid. Love this place!
Response: So glad to hear you've been enjoying our workshops! Glad we could spark some joy for you during a difficult past couple years. Thank you for continuously supporting Helen Olivia Flowers!

Natasha Krell: Absolutely stunning bouquet and boutonniere. I couldn't have been happier with it! Wonderful team to work with as well.
Response: Thank you, Natasha! So glad you enjoyed!

Paul Shipman: The arrangements are always gorgeous and thoughtfully designed. The service is fantastic. Great follow up on deliveries, and special care taken to make sure that the recipient got the arrangement in top condition and that I was kept updated throughout the process. I have used Helen Olivia Flowers on multiple occasions and recommend them highly!
Response: Thank you for your continued support of our business, Paul!

Erin Parsons: I ordered flowers for our friends around 9:00 in the morning on Helen Olivia’s website (super easy btw), and a beautiful arrangement was delivered to them in McLean before noon! I have always loved Helen Olivia’s arrangements, but I am very impressed by their promptness now too!
Response: Thank you so much, Erin! Glad you were pleased with our prompt service! We hope your friends enjoy their flowers!

Taylor Myers: Helen Olivia is simply the best! They are kind, quick & responsive, and always deliver on finding us the best flowers. My partner is 10/10 in love with every order I bring home (and the fine folks at Helen Olivia provide all the help I need to pick the right thing).
Response: So glad we were able to bring you and your partner such joy! Thanks, Taylor!

Elaine Walizer: The table arrangements were composed of white roses, white hydrangeas and white orchids. They were absolutely beautiful and the flowers so fresh!! After almost a week, the arrangement I brought home from the dinner still looks beautiful!! Highly recommend this florist.
Response: Thanks for the rating, Elaine!
