Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.

On same day arrangements, flower availability/containers may vary, but we will make sure to substitute with the most similar products available. The delivery will go out as soon as the following route is sent out. For any specifics feel free to leave notes in the special instructions and we will try our best to accommodate your needs.
