100% Satisfaction Guarantee

We work hard to create your flowers exactly like you see them on our site, but it may be necessary to create your bouquet with other flowers due to the availability of certain flowers. We would rather substitute your flowers with something fresh, rather than with something old.

Care is taken to maintain the style and theme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal or higher value. We take pride and the time to create each floral design for you because it’s the customer we care about. When people receive our flowers we often hear this is the most gorgeous flower design they’ve ever received.

The Lost Art of ‘Just Because’ Floral Gifts: Reigniting Joy in Daily Gestures

Frank Gallo Florist In our fast-paced, notification-cluttered lives, the art of thoughtful gift-giving is often overshadowed by the convenience of digital "thank you" notes and brief texts. But there's a particular charm in receiving a gift for no specific reason—just because someone was thinking of you. When it comes to meaningful, spontaneous gestures, nothing quite captures the sentiment of "I'm thinking of you" like a vibrant, fragrant bouquet. We offer beautiful Just Because Floral Gifts! This post aims to rekindle the joy of 'just because' floral gifts—those gifts that are not attached to birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays, but rather celebrate the everyday moments and the people who brighten our lives. We'll explore the reasons why these subtle, surprising gifts are crucial to maintaining personal relationships and how they can add that much-needed cheer to anyone's day. The Power of Spontaneous Joy Picture this: It is a regular Tuesday, nothing out of the ordinary. The doorbell rings, and there stands a florist with a bundle of flowers, addressed to you. In that moment, the banality of the week is broken, and the surprise fills you with a sense of specialness and joy. Such is the power of spontaneity. When we break [...]
