I have family and friends who live in the area, but I live in California and have order flowers quite a few times over the years. My family and friends have always been impressed by how fresh,colorful and artfully arranged the flowers and plants have been as well as long lasting. The pictures I have received of them were awesome. Unlike other florists, I know I can count on this one to send only the best. I do not recommend a service company often, but this florist is special. I give them 5 stars.
