Over the years I have tried various flower delivery services to send flowers to my Mom, especially for Mother's Day. I have always been disappointed. This year, I used Flowerbud and, for the first time, my Mom was delighted. She could not stop talking about how many flowers she got and how beautiful they were. My Mother loves to arrange flowers so she didn't mind using her own vases and arranging them herself. She said her only problem was that she had trouble finding large enough vases to put them in (seriously!) and had to use more than one.
I was a little surprised by the high price of the flowers (mine were $89) but then even more surprised when $89 was the final bottom line price. Nothing was added for shipping, "ordering fee," "handling," etc. With other companies I've thought I bought a $49 bouquet only to find that the bottom line was something like $72.
If you have someone who appreciates beautiful flowers but doesn't mind (or might enjoy) putting them in a vase and arranging a little themselves, I would recommend Flowerbud.
