I regularly send my grandmother flowers, however, I find that calling a local flower shop in her area is much more cost-effective. 1-800-Flowers has beautiful options, but they are so expensive compared to local options that will also deliver.
Incredibly easy service to use and convenient when you quickly need flowers. Used these to send flowers after the relative of a friend passed away and the flowers looked exactly as ordered from the website. Will definitely return for future orders.
I am concerned when ordering fresh flowers online. Have many times when ordering and sending to another city....what you ordered and what the person received is quite different in style and quality....can't control. I prefer to go to a store, see the product and talk to a person.
I believe that it's all dependent on the availability of flowers from the local florist that 1-800-flowers uses. They are supposed to substitute comparable flowers, so if they are subbing carnations for roses I'd have an issue.
