Wanted to use Blooms Direct for our wedding flowers. We met with the wedding coordinator and liked her idea, but in order to receive a proposal with a price estimate, you have to pay a non-refundable $100. Weird. This is not the norm. We

Not only were the flowers overpriced - they then started to deduct an automatic debit from my bank account claiming I had joined their Blooms-Direct club, which I had not.
Beware if you purchase anything from these folks.

So very disappointed with the overall experience I had placing my placing my order with this floral establishment. I ended up canceling my transaction--because I felt I was talking to people that didn't know what they were doing. Then I had to call back, because I was overcharged, as well. I was told that the additional charge would be taken off within 48 hours (well, I'm still waiting). Then to add further insult, I noticed yet another charge of 30 dollars on top of that! I was told they were unable to stop that particular charge from going through in time. What thirty dollar additional charge?! Certainly wasn't explained to me at the time I placed the order. Also, from the time I placed my order to the time I canceled--was in the space of about an hour's time. Not an unreasonable length of time to stop and unwanted transaction. Long story short, I ended up placing an online order with Telafloral...short and sweet...didn't try to sneak in any additional charges...put together a very fresh and beautiful floral arrangement for a friend who lost her husband. Straight up pricing--honest product and prompt delivery. What a concept!

I wanted a bouqet of flowers with Alstrameria (i have no clue how to spell it)...mixed with other random flowers. I just told them to have fun with it and do whatever they wanted and gave them a price range.

My wife got the flowers at work at the time i asked to have them delivered and she loved them. she sent me a picture. they looked great.

She got them last Friday. Today is Monday, and they still look good.

Thanks for the positive shopping experience!!

Pros: Wife LOVED them

Saturday, day before Mother's Day, I returned home to find a large bouquet of roses, peonies, lilies on my porch. Already 25% of the flowers were slightly wilted. I feel bad my West Coast children paid ~$100 for the bouquet. Today, 2 days after Mother's Day, most of the flowers are done. Perhaps ordering the flowers, and not actually seeing one's purchase in person gave Blooms Direct permission to use sub-standard material. Why discard flowers past their prime when you can put it into a bouquet!

Saturday, the day before Mother's Day, I returned home to find a large bouquet of flowers on the porch. The card read "Happy Mother's Day" from my children who live on the West coast. I was thrilled, but surprised to see 15% of the flowers were wilting and limp. Flowers were obviously well past their peak. I immediately emailed a photo thanking my children. My daughter was astonished the bouquet looked so bad, certainly a poor cousin of what she'd ordered.

I would not have accepted the delivery had I been home, being perfectly happy for my children's sentiment. I just feel bad they spent so much for a poor product!

I ordered two dozen roses at the last minute, and the owner made a special trip to deliver them on time. I always have excellent service, unusual arrangements, and flowers I can't find anywhere else. The roses at Blooms Direct are just gorgeous!

I would like to thank the staff at Blooms Direct for the personalized service that they gave my family especially my mom. Our father passed away on January 12th of this year and my mom being 94 could not get out to go to the florist. We called Blooms and explained the situation and they had someone come to my moms house and sit with her and discuss the flowers that she wanted. This was a very trying time for her but Blooms was very understanding and made her feel very comfortable. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and just what mom wanted. Again thanks for going that extra step in service and quality.

I totally enjoy shopping at Blooms Direct. When I am in town, I love to stop at the shop to pick-up fresh flowers for a house warming gift. Oh, the smell of the flowers and the colors. ...and the designers have always been helpful. I live out of town and most of my family lives in Columbus. So, ordering flowers from Blooms has always been easy because of their 1-800# and the arrangements have been incredibly beautiful. I highly recommend this florist!!!

I have used Blooms many times over the years. I recently hosted a wedding shower and ordered flowers to decorate my house for the event. I took in the invitation with the color scheme I wanted. The designer immediately started suggesting possible ideas. I let her decide and I was extremely excited when I saw the finished product which included two table centerpieces and a mantle spray. Everything was gorgeous and I could not have imagined anything more beautiful.

I have ordered elaborate arrangements like above, but also shopped for small teacher gifts and such. I can always find something at whatever price I'm looking for. Somettimes I pick out my own flowers and other times I let the professionals handle my order, but I appreciate having the opportunity to do either.

Pros: designer expertise, being able to pick my own flowers

I have shopped at Blooms Direct for many years, and use them anytime I need to send flowers. I even used them for my daughters wedding last fall. The sales people there are very friendly and helpful, and the designers, I feel are the most creative in this city! I have to disagree with the two negative reviews on this site, you must not purchase or send flowers very often. The most unique thing about Blooms is that if I want a few flowers for my house, I simply walk through the coolers and pick something out, if I need help, someone is happy to assist me, otherwise, it's like walking through a refrigerated garden. When planning my daughters wedding, they did ask for a deposit, and with reason, they put alot of time and effort into putting a proposal together, and it was taken off the botto line of the wedding. As far as pricing, Blooms is a little expensive, but you get what you pay for, and after all, isn't everything expensive nowadays?
In a nut shell, I highly recomend Blooms direct for any of your floral needs!

Pros: Just give them a price range-they will put together something beautiful!

Cons: Wear a sweater if your going to spend time in the walk-in coolers!

I looked into Blooms Direct for my wedding about a year ago. I met with one of the sales ladies (don't remember her name) and she was NOT helpful. She wasn't sure if they could get the flowers I wanted during the month I was getting married, but she said she would find out and give me a call to let me know. No one has called me since. I guess they just didn't want my business. She made no other suggestions to me, even though I was very open to them, and said I needed to make a deposit before talking specifics about floral arrangements. Why would I give them a deposit if I can't even talk to them about designs first?

About the same time I was in a dance show and my mom decided to use them to send me flowers so we could see the quality of their work. She said the woman on the phone was flighty, pretending like she knew about the show even though she clearly didn't. My mom had to repeat the location many times and the girl kept saying something different. When the flowers came, they were just okay and definitely not worth the price. I have been in this show for 12 years and receive flowers from my mom every year and this was the only year that didn't have everyone falling over themselves to take a look at. DEFINITELY NOT WORTH GOING TO. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

I always order my flowers ahead of time if I need a particular flower or large quantity. There prices are good. There knowledge and customer service is excellent. There product is always very fresh. Worth shopping there even though they are a bit out of the way.

I was looking for a flower shop in town to send flowers for a funeral. Being new to town I looked in the phone book. I thought they sounded like a good choice so I called. When I got to the funeral home I was so very shocked. The flowers looked old, the arrangement was not pretty at all, like it was just thrown together at the last minute. The woman I spoke with on the phone was not helpful at all in suggesting what to send. All in all it was a bad call on my part. I will be looking elsewhere next time I need to send flowers for any reason.

I have gone here several times expecting to find good deals on good quality plants -- the selection is always narrower than I expect and the prices higher.
