Funerals have been popping up left and right this month for my family. Flowers honestly are the last thing you think about when you loose a loved one. But when time keeps ticking and the actual day grows near, you have to push your mourning aside for at least 5 minutes so you can get in touch with a florist, to have flowers delivered to the funeral home.
Trust me, this is not an easy task, especially when that someone is a
relative, or young friend. You want to get the process over as fast as
possible. Visiting a florist during such a painful time can be
difficult, so I placed my order on the web and just hoped that they
would do our family justice.
I placed my trust with 1800-flowers.com. I had used them before for
Mothers Day and other events, but never for a funeral. I was hoping
they'd do justice.
I ordered a large sympathy floor basket. On the site this basket
looked beautiful, in yellows, whites and light pinks. The basket itself
came to $69.99 plus shipping, overall it came to around $85+ dollars
after all was said and done.
I checked out in a flash, and was glad I was done ordering them. It
wasn't because I was feeling annoyed that I had to order flowers, it was
because I was in mourning thinking about who the flowers were for, and
No one likes to think that this is the last bouquet of flowers this
person will be getting from you, but while you sit there at the computer
ordering flowers for a funeral, these thoughts can't help but run
through your mind. This is the last bouquet, and after ordering them, I
truly hoped that this company did justice.
The day of the funeral swept over me faster than I had imagined. I
wondered, and worried if the flowers were present. I had read so many
horror stories about flowers for funerals when it came to this company. I
truly hoped our bouquet arrived, and that it looked lovely, and not
half dead and dried out.
I scanned the room, and I notice quite a few baskets of flowers that
looked a little parched. I certainly hoped those were not the ones I had
sent. As I walked up to the casket to pay my respects, I noticed he
basket I had sent. It was glorious. They had placed it on the floor
towards the bottom of the casket. The flowers were all alive and looking
wonderful. The colors were vibrant, and not a single one looked
discolored, parched, or dried out. 1-800-Flowers did my family justice,
and I could not thank them enough.
They made placing the order fast and easy at a rough an emotional
time. They displayed bouquets in large vibrant pictures, which made
placing my order a breeze. They delivered on time as promised. I am sure
if Thomas could of got up, he would have said, 'Now thats one helluva bouquet!'
The bouquet came in the colors that were displayed on the Internet,
and the basket was much larger than I was imagining it would of been. I
honestly could have ordered the same basket in medium, and it would have
been just as gorgeous.
Unfortunately I have another funeral to send flowers to this weekend
coming up. 1800-Flowers.com will once again be serving my family and my
friend. I could not thank them enough for making such gorgeous
