I have been a customer of Watkins Flowers of Distinction for more then 26 years and I am always more amazed with each purchase, how much more creative and outstanding their arrangements are. I have yet to be anything, but absolutely delighted with every purchase I have made from them. It seems every time I send flowers for something, I am asked "where did you get them - who do you use". They really are amazing. I know I will be using them for a long time to come.

Watkin??s Flowers of Distinction did an amazing job on the flowers for my May 2009 wedding. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the flowers were. Even the catering manager at our venue said that it was the best she had ever seen their site look, and they have had a large number of weddings there. Doug and his team did a great job of picking the right flowers, the right color combinations, and suggesting little details that I never would have thought of, but which made a huge difference. And the palms! Oh my goodness, they added so much. I completely put my trust in Doug and I was not disappointed. It truly was breathtaking. I recommend Watkins to anyone who wants the most beautiful and fresh flowers for their wedding or special occasion.

Cons: None

I have ordered flowers from Watkins on numerous occasions and they have always far exceeded my expectations. I have tried the big box companies that mail flowers or deliver through their own locations and the quality of Watkins far surpasses any of those. They have an amazing staff and I would easily recommend this place to anyone looking for floral arrangements. I have ordered both fresh cut and artificial flowers from Watkins and have been 110% satisfied every time!

Watkins Flowers of Distinction, on Capital Blvd, in Arthur Murray dance building, is the best place in town for your floral needs! I have been a customer for 8 years and every time that I send flowers or a gift baset, I am always pleased with the thought that goes into putting together the arrangement. The staff there is so helpful and creative! I've also purchased some silk arrangements for my home and I always get compliments from others about how fantastic they look. I've also been to two weddings that Watkins did and I was so impressed! If I ever get married, they will get my business without a doubt! The last few years I've made a point to go to their holiday open house and found some beautiful and unique Christmas decorations. I do an ornament exchange with my friends and the one that I brought from Watkins was everyone's favorite.

The owner has been in the business forever and they are a Raleigh staple. They should be your first choice if you are sending flowers or putting together a big event or doing some decorating!

Recently I had a floral dilemma. It was one of my dear friend's birthday and I waited to the last minute to decide to order a floral arrangement. In a panic, I called Watkins Flowers and spoke with Kerri. Not only did she help me decide what to order, she assured me it would be delivered on time. And to alleviate my anxiety, she even sent me a photo of the arrangement. It was breathtaking-absolutely gorgeous. She was so kind and considerate. I will no doubt use Watkins Flowers for all my future floral services. Kudos to Kerri who patiently assisted me with my order!

My friend was having a bad day so I called up Watkins spoke with a very nice sales person who took my order. They delivered my friends flowers the same day and made her day a little better. Watkins made it easy to order the flowers and get them to my friend fast.

We orderd from this business because the funeral home (where a dear friend of ours was) recommened this business. We stressed how important this friend was, and we wanted a very nice standing spray, (told them twice). We got the the funeral home, the spray looked like someone started it ,and never finished it. If I had been able to remove theflower without making a specital, I would have taken it our of view. We called the morning of the funeral talked with K--. she said let me look it up, they take pictures of each flower, and she would call back shortly, 3 1/2 hours later after funeral, still no call back. We called again K-- was out talked with J---.Business had to look up again..J--- stated that she felt the flower was considered masculine. (only grerenery with red carnations) horrable. I asked J--- if a dear friend of hers had passed away, would she have sent the very same flower ? The only answer I got from her was that was a masculine flower...I was completely embarrased and insulted with the product, and the uncaring service of the business. Asked a couple of our friend what they thought of that flower, they agreed with our thoughts not knowing that was the flower we sent. If the business (J---) had acted even concerned it would have not left such a bad feeling, we never asked for a reduced price or for our money to be refunded. Wejust wanted them to know that was not a good choice and we were unhappy. But very plain they did'nt care. Stay away unless you can see your order first.

I stopped by Watkins on my way home from work to pick up flowers for a dinner my husband and I were attending. I called before I left work and the flowers were ready by the time I got there. I'm very please with my experience with Watkins. I will continue to use them. Thanks Watkins!

I received a gorgeous basket of flowers from a girlfriend for my birthday back in June. The roses in the basket were dead by the next day.

Watkins also prepares a weekly arrangement for our office which have to be some of the ugliest arrangements I've ever seen considering the price we pay.

Just got another arrangement today from my husband - again they're kind of plain & unattractive. Lots of filler flowers and I'm sure they were very expensive.

Too many florists in Raleigh to settle for second best.

I am so please with Watkins. I walked in and got help right away. I needed to send flowers out of the state to my mom and I was in and out within 5 minutes! I picked out the flowers she would get in a beautiful crystal vase and added a box of truffles.

Highly Recommended!

I stopped by to order my Valentine's day arrangement for my wife and what a selection Watkins had. There were about 15 Valentine's day arrangements to choose from and you could add anything you wanted too it so I added her favorite chocolate candy and a little stuffed animal.

Pros: 24 hour vending! What a great idea!

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

.

I called Watkins on May 29 to order flowers for delivery on June 4. I was assured that this was no problem and spent considerable time discussing the kinds of flowers for the arrangement and also the reason for the delivery being Monday for a friend opening a new office and Monday being the exact day for delivery. The flowers were not delivered and Watkins said "we over looked your order and are really sorry", then offered to add a few extra flowers to the arrangement and deliver on Tuesday. They called me at 4:59 PM on June 4 to tell me this so was too late to have anyone else get them out today. This was infuriating and unnecessary since they had the order for 6 days. They could have offered to deliver the flowers for FREE on Tuesday, but to offer a few extra flowers is insultling. I have called Fallons and am told that they will deliver flowers to my friend on Tuesday, but sadly I have missed the fun of getting the flowers delivered on the first day in the new office. I would NOT recommend this florist to anyone!

While attending my grand daughters wedding I was taken with the beautiful bouquets and how all the table arrangements matched everything perfectly! She told me she was so happy too and that the people at Watkins had been so helpful and creative. I took one of the arrangements home and it lasted and lasted.

I was recently travelling when a dear friend passed away. I called Watkins to order a sympathy arrangement but I had no details on the service or location. The sales person researched and called the funeral homes for me, then called me back to let me know my order was handled. Found out from the family of my friend my arrangement arrived in time for the service and was beautiful. Watkins Flowers went above and beyond!

I have used Watkins florist on two separate occasions and I am inclined not to use them again. I foun d the staff to be quite uppity, and in one case, quite condescending. I had called to order flowers for a funeral service on the last occasion I used them. The flowers were not there that evening so I called the next morning asking where they were. I was told to relax that they were delivered that morning. As soon as she told me that some on in the background d said, Tell her the dead guy aint going no where. Because of that comment I will not use them again.
