    • DETAILS


      I was curious why this colorway is not delivered more in the gift market. I called some of our florists for explanation.


      The general explanation repeated: “It’s an uncommon request except for parties and weddings! If our events are in full swing that's what we send out on dailies too. For gifts, most people think of saturated jewel-tone colors, or pastels, whites and greens. I guess most of us don’t think about how gorgeous this color-way is."


      Clearly, sherbet colors are not in our floral lexicon...yet!

      Flowers to consider: In winter and spring, tulips, especially the meaty French imported ones. Bicolor ruffle tulips come in tangerine, pink or pale yellow and apple-green, whiter shades of daffodils, Spring brings Iceland poppies, then in summer, roses, zinnias, snapdragons. Apple Greens commonly include hydrangea, Lady’s Mantle, Carnations, Viburnum…the list goes on and on.


      One big bouquet of Zinnias is seasonal and rich.

      It’s worth the planning to call a week in advance for a big vase of green zinnias.

    • DELIVERY

      Same day delivery is typically available until 12 pm in the recipient's timezone. Most of our member florists are closed on Sundays though in some cases we may be able to accommodate special deliveries if we receive the order in advance. Orders placed past 12 pm in the recipient's time zone or for Sunday delivery may be delivered the next business day though we will make every attempt to accommodate your first choice delivery date.
    • RETURNS


      Since we are dealing with a perishable product and since most everyone has a smart phone, our return policy requires a photo accompanied by either order #, or sender’s last name or recipient’s last name (for order identification). Please email to orders@bbrooks.com or text/call 888-346-3356 within 24 hours of delivery.


      Expedited returns are usually a result of dead flowers, unfulfilled requests within reason or straight-up missed-delivery without an adequate explanation. These circumstances usually result in immediate cancellation & credit in our system Please bear in mind, that sometimes the cash settlement is delayed by your bank’s or credit card policy.


      In our experience, florists do not intentionally send out dead flowers, but wholesalers are known to skirt the limits. They know if their hydrangeas haven’t hardened, or other their roses have been in the fridge for too long, then after they are in room temperature, the flowers will “go down” aka, be dead by bed time. Other scenarios include cold wind: orchid blooms wilt, Poinsettia leaves curl then crisp up.


      Dehydration and/or extreme heat can cause temperate flowers to wilt. If this is the case it is easily remedied by adding water to the vase.


      All vases should be topped up upon receipt. Spring bulb flowers drink like crazy so their containers should be filled up almost every day.


      Sometimes, senders don’t like the flowers that were sent or believe they were jipped. In these circumstances we still need a photo within 24 hours. Our mission in all situations is to accommodate fairness.


      Sometimes we get hijacked in situations where the recipient LOVES the gift even though sender despises it. This brings to mind the time a customer ordered a fluffy low and lush arrangement of seasonal garden flowers going to TX in July. It was 100 in Dallas with high humidity. Garden flowers don't have a chance in that climate unless the house AC is set around 60. Who's to know. As the story goes, the florist sent a tall chunky vase with a bold Monstera leaf and long stem of green Dendrobium orchid. Upon receiving a photo in a gushing thank you text, the sender insisted a re-delivery. When the florist called to organize a switch, the poor recipient almost started to cry. She loved the Monstera and Dendrobium and knew it would last 2-3 weeks! Eventually the sender backed down but she wasn't happy.


      This whole world of gift giving is the best of times, but can be the worst of times and in either case common sense is required. For example, if you are sending an arrangement to a food desert, they likely don’t have a fine florist. In these instances, more pedestrian arrangements are sent. In other words, in a depressed or rural destination, more traditional fluffy arrangements are the norm.


      My opinion holds firmly in that if the gift delivered is in good taste, reflective of the occasion and the recipients taste, and the value is there, you are in great shape because there is nothing better than receiving a great gift of flowers.
