My mom was so surprised by the flowers I sent her from CR Flowers for Mother's Day. She said they were so beautiful and vibrant. Which is exactly what I was hoping for! The only problem I had with my order was that the card somehow was missing most of what I wrote out for her. It only had the first sentence of my message. But from that sentence she was able to guess that I was the one who sent them. I would definitely recommend this company! It brought a huge smile to my mom's face. Thanks!

My fiancé surprised me with flowers for my birthday, but the delivery lady came when I was out to lunch. I apologized for the inconvenience and to take the flowers back with her to the store, and I will pick them up on my way home. They were nice enough not to charge me nor my fiancé a fee for coming out and not having someone home since I have had flowers delivered from here many times in the past, and I was always home to receive them with the exception of that day. I'm also always pleased with the flowers that I receive from here.

I ordered flowers for Mother's Day a bit last second and found that they would not be delivered until the day after. I had no qualms with this since I made the decision to procrastinate. BUT! To my surprise, I got a text from her that Sunday, Mother's Day, saying how much she loved her flowers. The only problem I can see with this would be that, for example, if had I put her work address down anticipating her being at work that Monday, the flowers would have gone there that Sunday. Luckily I didn't, and everything worked out wonderfully.

CR Flowers by far exceeds all expectations. I have used them for my sons school dance flowers, friends birthdays and my parents funeral flowers. They always make such beautiful arrangement no matter what price category you choose. I highly recommend them to all my friends and family. They are a small family company that makes you feel at home and their flower arrangements show that care was put into them. Thank you for being great!
