Is the arrangement in the photo exactly what will be delivered?
Can I make a change to my order?
Can I send my flower order anonynous, with no signature?
It is our policy that we will not send flowers without a signature. It is our experience that the recipient of flowers, without a signature of who sent them, sometimes may go through undue stress. We will always provide the name of the sender.
What flowers do you usually have in stock everyday?
We offer a wide selection of flowers everyday. We offer Roses, Hydrangea, Stock, Snapdragons, Sunflowers, Tulips (when in season), Delphinium, Alstromeria, Carnations, Mini Carnations, Spray Roses, Gerbera, Glads, Poms, Mums and many various filler flowers and asst greens.
Will you contact the recipient?
We will contact the recipient if they live in an apartment, are a student at the University, or if the delivery is on the outer boundaries of our delivery area. We may also contact the recipient if we need additional information about the delivery address. Every ticket is unique, so we reserve the right to contact the recipient if we feel it is necessary.
Can you deliver at a specific time to a funeral?
We make every effort to have all funeral floral designs and plants delivered before the visitation begins. There are times that we might deliver during the visitation, especially if the visitation starts prior to our delivery times. For Family Pieces such as the Casket Piece, we will have it delivered prior to the beginning of the service.
Is there an offer code or coupon code I can use for online purchases?
There are times that we may offer a discount on delivery or a code to save money on an order. We clearly post these on our website when applicable or if you are signed up for email updates, the code will be included in the email if we have a special code. It is our company policy to offer the best and highest quality floral designs that we can at a fair price. Therefore, we do not offer sales very often or at all. We try to keep our prices as low as we can each and every day.
Do you donate flowers for non profit events?
While we are proud supporters of our community, we do not offer donations of floral arrangements. If you complete the donation request form located at https://www.spedales.com/page/donation we will see if we can work with you on the pricing. We do not donate to individuals or individual causes. Our donation policy is located at the link above.
