Why do flowers from florist cost more?
As more florists are independent operators, they do not have the purchasing power of larger box stores or grocery chains ; therefore, we have the ability to hand select higher quality florals from auction houses and import brokers. Remember, “discount flowers give you a discount image”.

Why are flowers more expensive at holiday times?
As the flower brokers purchase flowers at auction warehouses , the rule of supply and demand is in full effect.Popular holiday florals have more demand by the consumer. Roses (Valentines Day), Gerberas (wedding weekends), spring flowers (Mother's Day) and out of season florals (winter) making the purchasing of flowers cost more to the florist as well as to the consumer.

Should I order something traditional or unique?
Floral Expressions excels in both designs masterfully. If you want to impress with size and bloom count, order a traditional arrangement. Our design team will use in season and value based flowers (carnations, chrysanthemums, lilies etc.) If the need is unique and different floral arrangement , our well trained sales and design team can suggest florals designed with exotic flower and greens. These designs use artistic placements using the concept of negative space for the “wow” effect.
