What text do I put on a funeral banner?
Typically, funeral banners should be one word or up to three words, but short and sweet. Use them to display what the deceased was to you or your family. Examples include, "Beloved Grandfather", or "Mother, Sister, Wife".
Do you do wedding flowers?
Yes! We love working with couples planning their special wedding day! Reach out to schedule a consultation so that we can go over your vision and create a custom design concept and proposal for your event! For large scale events, we love to start working with you about 6 to 9 months prior to your event date. Be sure your venue, date, and overall vision are selected first. If you need something smaller like a few bouquets and boutonnieres and are on a tighter timeline, we can absolutely accommodate based on available flowers.
Are roses more expensive on Valentine's day?
They are typically a bit more expensive based on supply and demand. Farms can only grow and cut a limited number of roses regularly, so they must increase prices and therefore we have to as well. We try to provide many options for price points as well as design styles to accommodate every budget!
How do you get peonies to open?
Provide closed peonies with clean, fresh water and bright indirect sunlight. If they're still stubbornly closed, gently loosen their firm outer petals with your fingers. This should help them to bloom out more fully.
Do you guarantee your flowers?
Yes, we take pride in making the customer and recipient happy with their order. We have a 7 day replacement guarantee. Let us know if you're having any quality issue with your fresh cut flowers so that we can accept a return of the original bouquet and replace it. We'll document any issues with the original and report that back to our suppliers.
Do you do silk flowers?
Yes, we do. We love creating custom designs in silk - just let us know what colors and overall look you have in mind. If we don't have something in shop to fit your needs, we can special order which typically takes at least 2 weeks.
Can you ship flowers?
We don't ship any flowers. All our local orders are hand delivered by our Herndon Florist delivery team. If you need something delivered out of town, we'll utilize our network of local florists to send it out of town to be hand delivered by another experienced florist.
I tried placing an order, but it didn't go through. What can I do?
How can I pay?
What if my chosen flowers aren't available?
Do you do homecoming flowers?
Yes! We can create boutonnieres, corsages, and homecoming posy bouquets! Let us know what color suit and gown the couple is wearing so we can customize the colors.
How do I take care of my succulent garden?
Be sure it has good drainage and will not have standing water, let your soil dry out completely between watering sessions. Rotate your plants so that each side receives regular indirect, bright light. Be sure to dust off your leaves regularly as well!
How do I take care of my snake plant?
Snake plants are easy! The main rule is to make sure you don't overwater. They are very flexible about their lighting, but be sure that the soil is fully dried out between waterings, about once every 2 weeks. Adjust this schedule in winter and keep your snake plant warm where possible. Grouping plants can help as they'll all enjoy each other's warmth!
Do you have peonies?
Peonies are typically a special order flower for us. Their season is a short one, May - June, so those are the best times to get quality peonies at the best prices. Let us know if you're looking for them and we can ask our suppliers for pricing and availability and typically have them in store in about a week or 2.
Do you do prom flowers?
Yes! We can design corsages of all styles, boutonnieres, and prom posy bouquets! Be sure to share the colors of suit, tie, and gown the couple will be wearing so that we can match the style and colors.
What’s the best flower to send for a birthday?
A bright and cheerful mix of seasonal flowers! or roses, because everyone likes roses.
Can you spray paint my flowers black?
We don't spray paint flowers at the shop. Everything is natural. But we can always find a black vase or add a black bow to the arrangement
What are the longest lasting flowers?
Carnations, mums, and alstromeria.
What flowers and plants are pet friendly?
Pet friendly Flowers- aster, alstromeria, daisies, orchids, roses, snapdragons, sunflowers, zinnias. Pet Friendly Plants- ferns, spider plants, African violets, bromeliads, money trees, calathea
What flowers are available year round?
We typically like to carry roses, carnations, alstros, lilies, gerbera daisies, and snapdragons year round. Everything does vary year to year based on weather and other international changes.
What are the best seasonal flowers in fall?
Chrysanthemums! they come in many different colors and are a long-lasting flower with many blooms! Aster is another good fall flower, more of an accent flower but comes in yellow, white and purple that gives the arrangement a more wildflower look and feel.
