In the blooming city of Austin there are many choices in local businesses... but only one top choice when it comes to flowers in Austin. Not only are they locally owned and operated, they also do their part in giving back to our community with many charity programs. My favorite is the: "A Bloom of Hope" where a floral design is selected each month and proceeds benefit a local charity!
Their local support is a match to their great customer service and outstanding design. For flowers in Austin, check these guys out.
I was very impressed with King Florist's website and ordered a beautiful arrangement of orange spray roses with white hydrangeas and river rock. I was incredibly disappointed to learn that they had sent pink spray roses with a pink bow without even bothering to call me to approve the substitution. When I called to share my disappointment, they were apologetic and offered to place a note in my file to never make substitutions without approval. They also offered me free shipping on my next order. I will probably take them up on it, but not without calling and going over every detail of my order in very specific terms with a no substitution directive.
I thought that customer service was dead.... until I found King Florist of Austin! I have never bought flowers over the net or phone and was nervous about them being right and getting them to her on time. I called them this morning and in 3 hours they were on her desk and perfectly what I ordered. I can tell you that i have never been happier with a flower company in my life, but all I ask is that you give them the chance to make you a life customer like I am.

This place is AMAZING! They have a huge assortment of flowers and giftbaskets for all occasions. The quality of baskets is awesome. I had never been to such a super flower shop like this! I guess that's why they call it KING FLORIST:) I love getting and giving the giftbaskets and I know it brings smiles to someone receiving one. The prices are resonable and depending on what you want and what you are looking for prices could go higher of course. The store is always well stocked with the most gorgeous flowers you will ever see. Parking is not bad, kinda in a high traffic area. Customer service is A+ and can't be beat. I would recommend them to friends and family. I will be back for sure very soon.

Not only do they have great flower arrangements, but they also have a wide variety of really neat gift baskets! I love giving people a gift basket for many occasions and they have something for everyone! They have plenty of "Texas" items and I sent off a basket of Texas stuff to my folks. They loved all of the hot sauces and other specialized gifts. You can also go in and put together your own basket of whatever you personally pick out.

I had to find a present for my girlfriend's mom for her birthday, and this was a great place to find the perfect gift! Okay maybe not the perfect gift, but they have a lot of nice looking things that'll brighten someone's day. Check this place out. It has a clean atmosphere. The gifts you can get there are pretty neat, too. If you're looking for something quick to get, this is the place to go!

King Florist is a great place to order flowers, they have award winning designers who create beautiful floral arrangements and offer free delivery to patients in Seton and St. David Central Hospitals. They also offer great gift baskets for every occasion. They also offer world wide wire service so you can bring a smile to the face of someone special no matter where they are.

I absolutely love King Florist I have been using them for several years now and they are by far one if not the best place in Austin to find unique, beautiful, and simply breathtaking arrangements. I continue to receive compliments everytime I order from them for various life events.
The flowers King Florist helped me pick out were perfect! I wanted to give a friend who landed her dream job something colorful and unique. They gave suggestions, loosly arranged some different combinations so I could envision how it would look, and helped me achieve what I was looking for. It was a bright blue hyndrangea, orange roses, and fushia orchid stems. My friend loved it and got compliments all day on it. The customer service was wonderful and the arrangment was gorgeous!
We ordered daisies for our high school musical actors from King Florist and they did a wonderful job. The flowers were beautiful and lasted forever, the employees gave great advice about the care and handling of the flowers, and the product arrived right on time. It was also an amazing value for a worthwhile project! Thank you, King Florist!
They always deliver the freshest and most beautiful flowers! If they don't have exactly what you want you can always call them and they'll do a custom order for you. Even if your order is not in the Austin area they'll find a local florist in your area to help you out (they've helped me with an order in Tulsa, OK before!) Check them out ASAP! You won't be disappointed.
I got an arrangement last week for my husband's retirement party. I just want to say that it was a beautiful arrangement and matched perfectly to the cake and other decorations. Many people complimented me on the flowers. The yellow orchids and the ginger blooms were outstanding. The delivery was made earlier than requested, which allowed us to set up in plenty of time.\r
Thank you for your excellent service and outstanding designs. You all have always done an excellent job for me.
I just completed my first purchase with King Florist and I am completely impressed! I purchased a Groupon to send a surprise bouquet to my Mom just because. When I called, Janelle was extremely helpful and offered great suggestions. My Mom's favorite flower is the carnation and when I mentioned that Janelle told me that they don't normally stock carns, but that if I wasn't in a hurry to send it, she would special order them for me. I agreed to wait and have it delivered next week. Well, yesterday on my way home from work the phone rang and Janelle told me she was able to get the carns in earlier than expected and was it okay to deliver the flowers today? I told her of course and was excited that they were going to be delivered earlier than I expected! Well, I just got a call from Mom and she received the flowers. She is thrilled and just loves the design! I haven't seen the arrangement yet, but it sounds wonderful! I am a trained floral designer turned Administrative Manager and know that the only time people call the flower shop is when they are unhappy with what they got, so I wanted to be sure to let Janelle and the staff at King Florist as well as everyone here that they did a great job for me and I will be ordering from them again soon.\r
There are some excellent florists in Austin....in fact, more great shops concentrated in Austin than in Dallas, Houston, or any other Texas city, probably because of the artistic vibe of Austin itself. I think of Cowgirls & Flowers, Coby Neal, David Kurio, and several others as being great, but the absolute BEST in town and maybe the entire state of Texas, is KING FLORIST. Attention to detail is unmatched. Friendly, helpful, and extremely professional...and the designs are gorgeous and as cutting-edge as any I have ever seen. \r
I received an arrangement of the most beautiful orange gerbera daisies & hydrangea this afternoon from someone very special.....\r
They took my breath away, actually....on several different levels.\r
They were unusual.\r
They were healthy and fresh.\r
The quality of the vase was out of the ordinary.\r
The woman who delivered my flowers was so sweet ...and I will never forget her saying, ""You're one lucky lady!"" She's right there!\r
Then I called the florist to tell them how breathtaking the flowers were.....spoke to Janelle....lovely again! And, based on what she told me, she followed very specific 'instructions' for the flowers.....\r
I'm 57, as I told her, and I have sung all of my life on stages all over the world. I've received a couple of flower arrangements in my life. \r
But these flowers surpassed most every arrangement (if not ALL) I have ever received! \r
THEY ARE STUNNING!\r
Not to mention the fact that I live in southeast Austin....and they are located on Burnet Road.....sorta takes 'going the extra mile' to a new level, wouldn't You say?\r
King Florist of Austin is a keeper....and then some!\r
Pros: Friendly and professional
Cons: Cons? Seriously? Ok....they're not around the corner....
I found King of Yelp and they had great reviews and a coupon so I gave them a call. My sister's birthday was the following day and Lynsey was able to recommend an arrangement that my sister absolutely loved. She sent me a picture (since I live in Washington) and they certainly looked beautiful.
Pros: Helpful staff, good prices, modern arrangements
After recently moving to Austin, I was looking for a great florist to connect with. I found King Florist after 4 days of being here! They have amazing designs and extremely fresh product. I have had the pleasure of watching them work, and literally every flower is carefully inspected and cleaned before it goes into an arrangement. So many shops now-a-days throw together arrangements just to get them out the door. King Florist is the opposite. They would rather spend extra time and effort in making sure that my arrangements are near prefect before being delivered! Find a Florist in Austin...Check!
Pros: Wonderful designs, product is very fresh.
I could not be more disappointed. My husband knew both of the prior owners, who delivered amazing bouquets. This year he spent $211 dollars, and if I could show you what they delivered, you'd cry. He told them I love lilies, and they told him they don't have anything other than ""teacup lillies"", but that's not what we got. For $200 we got 20 calla lillies and a few white carnations. Seriously? Number one, they didn't tell a dude that they would send a tiny funeral arrangement (and by tiny, I mean TINY) nor did they send anything that measured less than 14""high by 14"" tall by 5"" wide. I sent my mother 24 red roses in an amazing bouquet by a different florist for $100 that was TRULY STUNNING by AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FLORIST!
Cons: ALL OF THEM
Thank you King Florist for making my father's funeral an absolutely amazing day! The flowers you helped me select by phone made an incredible statement and had all the attendees talking. Thank you for making me look so good on such an important day!\r
Pros: Best Florist in Town
I just received flowers from King Florist for my 38th anniversary. It was simply an outstanding flower arrangment, not just the same old thing. Very creative and unique. They best arrangement I have ever received. I could not be more pleased.
Pros: Easy to use website
OMG...What a great place!!! The staff is amazing, and the floral designs are just fantastic! My hustband would always bring home roses and I was so burnt out, that I haven't had a rose in My house for over 8 months..... that is until King florist! I never recieved the same design twice. They were so amazing that, now every time We want to suprise someone, We call King Florist. We recommend everyone to call KIng Florist and just be amazed by Benoit and His genius staff. The Best Floral Desigers in Town!!
Pros: Great floral arrangments
I just placed an order with them because we have received 3 orders (various family members) in last 4 mths and every single arrangement that came had people just raving over them. Their design is SO chic, so NOT old school look and gorgeous and elegant. They are so fresh because they've lasted up to 2 wks. I was actually excited to spend money there today!
Pros: The most awesome arrangements in Austin in yrs
Not often do I find a place of business that makes me want to give a positive review. That being said, King Florist has changed that completely! Last week my wife had a special event in which she was honored and received an Excellence Award from the University. I wanted to get her something a little special and some flowers she could share with her office. As I clicked around online I found lots of florist in Austin doing the exact same thing as the next shop. Through recommendation, I viewed the King Florist website and I knew this was the place I had to order her flowers from. The designs were like nothing else online and with the prices comparable to any other site I had been to. Not only did they work with me to complete the order online, they also followed up by phone for final details. Later on that day, I received a call from my wife telling me how beautiful the arrangement was and how exceptional it made her feel. She also pointed out that ""Fresh Design"" and ""Rich Materials"" where complements she heard people in the office use to describe the arrangement throughout the week. Thanks again to King Florist for making an already special day a touch more memorable.
Pros: Unique designs, Rich materials
My experience with King Florist was great from start to finish. My mother ordered flowers for me for my birthday and she said that the employee went above and beyond over the phone to help her order the *perfect* arrangement. She made some great suggestions and took the time to describe the various arrangements available. My flowers were delivered on time by a very nice and professional delivery person. The flowers were exactly what my mother had ordered and I have gotten so many compliments from coworkers. This is the most beautiful arrangement I have ever received and I would recommend friends and family to King Florist...you will get exactly what you order and their customer service is above and beyond many other florists in town...I only wish I had known about them for my wedding!
Pros: Great customer service, beautiful fresh flowers
I received some flowers from King Florist of Austin this week from my sales team. They were beautiful and the arrangement was just stunning. Benoit is a floral genius! Thank you King Florist, I will recommend you to everyone :)
I have used King Florist for several years. I know when I send flowers from king the recipient will be thrilled. I even send them to myself! Nothing else in Austin compares!!!!
Pros: Unique Euro designs - a living piece of art
Cons: absolutely none
I have used several florists in the Austin areas but none were ever as consistent as King Florist.\r
Whenever I call (I'm sorry, V-Day, Anniversary, etc.) they are ready to help. Not only do they help me pick an arrangement but they keep track of previous orders so I don't accidntally duplicate one (big plus for forgetful folks like myself).\r
The greatest thing about King is the enjoyment my wife gets from the arrangements. From the envy of her coworkers to the longevity of the flowers, she is one happy camper.\r
I know the price can appear steep but this is one time where paying a little extra gets you something really special.
Pros: Longevity of flowers
To my delight, I have been the recipient of many beautiful floral deliveries from my perfect husband. Sent by his big heart, but created by King Florist, the flowers have wowed and swooned me. Every bouquet has taken my breath away. The creative deigns are unique and the flowers perfect in every detail. I appreciate the special touches that are added to the arrangements, like peacock feathers tucked into a stunning array of tulips, or a delicious box of chocolates with enough to share with my co-workers. My husband and I married only a year ago after a very quick courtship. It makes me wonder to what extent King Florist had to play with the two if us falling in love. Thank you for helping my birthday, first-date anniversary, Valentines and so many other special times a happy and memorable event.
Pros: Creative Designs
Cons: No Cons!
I highly reccomend King Florist! They have great service and are very friendly. The flowers are arranged in very unique ways that set them apart from other florists. My wife has LOVED every bouquet of flowers that I have given her from King Florist!
I thought that customer service was dead.... until I found King Florist of Austin! I have never bought flowers over the internet or phone and was nervous about them being right and getting them to her on time. I called them this morning and in 3 hours they were on her desk and perfectly what I ordered. I can tell you that i have never been happier with a flower company in my life, but all I ask is that you give them the chance to make you a life customer like I am. \r
Cons: The only downside is that they are in Austin and I'm in Los Angeles..... branch out!
Unique and creative arrangements. Website user friendly. Daughter very pleased with birthday flowers. Same-day delivery a plus.
I am an Austinite living abroad and have had occasion to order flowers for friends several times in the last year. King Florist has the most unusual designs and an easy to use website. My friends to whom I have sent the flowers have been thrilled with their gifts, which is all I could ask for and more.
If you are looking for a no hassle, last minute florist with an extremely professional experience, then King Florist is the shop you should use. I called with less than 24 hour notice and requested 34 dozen roses. I also told the shop that ""I may need them, but I would call with a 1.5 hour notice."" Not only did they agree to these terms, but King Florist was extremely professional, pleasant, and on time. I give them the highest recommendation possible.
King Florist Rocks! I called several other Austin florists and none of them wanted to deliver flowers to my sick friend who needed cheering up. All I asked for is a large bunch of Dutch tulips in a vase anchored with stones delivered the next day. What was delivered was so beautiful that my friend said she had to touch them to be sure they were real because they were so perfect. King Florist designed a beautiful arrangement around my request, delivered it on time and called me to confirm the delivery had been made. They definitely cheered up my friend and gained a loyal customer. \r
Pros: Fresh arrangements delivered ontime
I received the most beautiful arrangement from King Florist today. The flowers are very unique and smell wonderful. King Florist did a great job of arranging them and went above and beyond the usual bouquet you receive from most florists. I was very impressed and will use King Florist for future purchaes.
My office staff all chipped in an AMAZINGLY beautiful arrangement for our manager for Boss's Day. Our delivery arrived 1st thing this morning (9:30ish) and we were all amazed at the creativity and artistry that obviously went into our ""masterpiece""! A uniquely shaped vase, with beautiful bluish-grey stones at the bottom, and an assortment of flowers. And I don't mean your typical--daisies, roses & carnations. I mean beautiful flowers in lovely fall/earthy colors--far more stunning that the every day variety. I was very pleased with my experience from start to finish and recommend them HIGHLY!
Pros: Prompt, Unique, Coupon/Discount offered
Because of all the rave reviews posted here, I selected this florist to make a wrist corsage for my wedding. It was made of tiny orange orchids, quite pretty but so small it had no visual impact whatsoever. I was very disappointed. It was probably 2"" x 2"" at the most and had ribbon ties to hold it on that I felt would simply get in my food at our dinner. I had to turn it into a hair ornament and purchase a small bouquet at another florist for our ceremony. I would certainly be more specific about my order next time but will likely not use King Florist again.
Pros: Easily accessible location
Cons: Picture examples not even close to final product
When you need to send more than just flowers placed in a vase....\r
My sister moved to Austin a year ago. It was her birthday and I wanted to send her flowers, but I wanted something that would impress her as a artist. After viewing their website, I could see King florist \r
was a unique find. The sales staff were very helpful and informative, they guided me in selecting a arrangement that I knew my sister would enjoy. \r
My sister loved the artistic detail in her floral design, from the river rocks to peacock feathers! And the freshness of the flowers was wonderful!\r
It's great to have creative experts you can trust with your order!\r
I have been getting my flowers at King florist since I moved to Austin in 2004. I really like the friendly folks in the store and the fact that if you have the time, you can watch your bouquet being made. Mostly I used to call in most of my orders until I got on their website and now, I go online for my orders. My favorite is the ""Moulin Rouge,"" and the ""Rose Cube."" It's as simple as look, add to cart and pay. The best part is that the bouquet looks just as good when it gets to my door as on the picture and my wife has not been disapointed so far. I would not dream of getting my flowers anywhere else.
Pros: great attitude; parking; website; prices for any occasion; flowers last for days
Great arrangements!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!\r
Any florist can, or should, be able to put flowers in a vase and make it look good. What distinguishes the floral arrangements at King Florist from any other place is creativity, creativity and a touch of creativity. You can tell, in the details of each arrangements, that King Florist actually cares about the product that leaves the store.\r
Each arrangement is like a little work of art and certainly receives the biggest smiles from the recipients. And it's not just the flowers that are eye catching. The vases are part of the art. The vase can be a simple glass receptacle but it will be filled with rocks, sea shells, a banana leaf or even kumquats.\r
Very classy, stylish arrangements. Do you know I can be so sure of it? My wife loves them! And now, when I bring home an arrangement from King Florist, my 5-year old asks me where hers is!
Pros: Design, customer service and HUGE smiles to those who receive them.
Cons: My wife wants me to leave my credit card on file there! Honestly, haven't found one yet!
Wonderful experiences time after time with King Florist. The staff are always helpful and the work is like none I've ever seen before. Each time we use King Florist we get asked by all on the receiving end who we used for our events. They have a wonderful standard of service.
all my friends are getting some and love them, especially the guys and girls at the office. for your next gifts, send them a gourmet basket.
I have been using King florist for many years and they are THE BEST! I can't say enough about the creative, beautiful and original arrangements that I have gotten from this florist. \r
The owner and all of his desighers really do a great job at making every arrangement special from the containters to the little extras they add, it's truly amazing!\r
King Florist should be your go to flower shop, excellent service and wonderful arrangements. They also have orchids and such, I gave one to my son's teacher and I thought she was going to cry, it was that beautiful!
Pros: Unique, inventive arrangements, great service
moved from california 2 years ago, was affraid not to find the quality i was used of, but king florist did the job and i was very impressed by the design and the freshness.\r
do not pass, order from king florist they also have a web adress .
Pros: quality, service, design
Cons: it's addictif
I ordered three simple bouquets, three boutonnieres, 2 corsages, one hairpiece, and 2 long stem roses for our wedding ceremony. All were simple, but elegant--exactly what I wanted--and the price/value was great. Excellent service too. Four days after the wedding, the two long stem roses used in the ceremony were still beautiful. I will use this florist again.
Pros: excellent service, nice quality flowers
I guess I had done the typical guy thing and put my foot in my mouth yet again. I knew that I needed to do more than just apologize to my fiance. I looked King up online and their website showed flowers that really stood out from the usual carnation stuff. Ordered an orchid vase with an ""I'm sorry"" message on the card and she was floored.
Not only did she forgive me, but she told all her friends about the cool arrangement.
If you want something different, give them a try.
Pros: unique, helpful, online ordering
A local, family-owned flower shop that really cares about its customers! They're so helpful, have beautiful designs, and a great cooler with lots of fresh flowers to grab & go for a quick pick-me up.
Pros: good value, easy parking, hours
