In November 2002 Michael Chapin founded From You Flowers in Old Saybrook, Connecticut—still home base for the business. With owners that boast more than 35 years of experience in the flower industry, the company now has offices in Connecticut and New York but delivers around the world.

How do they do it?

They’ve linked up with about 20,000 florists around the globe and, with these connections, are able to service the entire United States and—get this!—140 other countries. They claim more than five million satisfied customers so far and continue to work hard to deliver quality flowers on a global scale.

The Good

  • Selection
  • Quality
  • Guarantee

It goes without saying that one of From You Flowers’s most prized qualities is their wide selection of flowers. They don’t just give you the basic roses and daisies (though they handle those too). They’ll put together bouquets that have lilies, irises, orchids, tulips, carnations, and sunflowers, as well as winter flowers.

They also cater to any occasion you can think of—from apologizing to your mother, to congratulating your boss, to just saying, “I love you” to your spouse. With such a variety of themes, you’re sure to find the bouquet that fits your occasion. But aside from bouquets, they also offer corsages and boutonnieres, gift baskets, plants, and wreaths.

In other words, you can order “from-you” flowers, but if you prefer, you can order “from-you” fruit, treats, and plants instead. They have options.

From You Flowers also delivers on quality.

Did you know that their flowers are so fresh that they were recognized in 2010 by famous CNBC as the florist with the “Best Overall Quality and Price”? A reward like that doesn’t go unnoticed. Even though they’re a global company, their flowers are delivered by a local florist, which helps keep them preserved for deliveries.

The prices at From You Flowers earn them another point. Flowers, admittedly, are a costly gift unless you pick them in your own yard. But this company will only charge you between $30 and $80 for their quality bouquets. Plus, they offer coupons sometimes to help take the edge off that price.

To their credit—and your satisfaction—this florist also offers same-day delivery. This means that if you order by 3 p.m. in the time zone of your delivery, your flowers will be delivered within hours of when you placed your order. From You Flowers also guarantees your satisfaction—and will either redeliver your flowers or refund you if you happen to be dissatisfied.

Speaking of which, they provide lots of customer support resources. That definitely earns them a point, as ordering flowers often warrants help with picking out the right bouquet, making sure the delivery address is found, etc. With From You Flowers, you can contact their customer support with the following:

  • 24/7 availability to make an order
  • The ability to track your order (bonus points for those of us who worry!)
  • Email
  • Phone
  • Even the physical addresses for the corporate offices should you feel so inclined to contact them literally

The florist has even take the time to provide detailed instructions on how to take care of your flowers when they are delivered. This goes to show they do care about their customers—before, during, and after their deliveries.

At TBC, we recommend ordering with From You Flowers for the following reasons:

  1. Low bouquet prices
  2. Over 1,000 bouquets to choose from
  3. 100% satisfaction guarantee
  4. Large number of gift options

The Bad

  • Complaints

No company is without its faults though.

What are the complaints about?

Well over two hundred of them were regarding delivery problems, and another two hundred reported problems with the product itself that they received. Other customers reported flaws about the company’s satisfaction guarantee, billing, and advertising issues.

On top of that, there are several negative reviews online about this company as well. Most of these reviews complain about the From You Flowers’s dishonest pricing and missed deliveries. So for what it’s worth, beware if you order from this company that you may have hiccups.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to picking a florist, there are a lot of factors you deem important. But here’s what you really need to keep in mind with this one.

Above all else, their wide variety of flowers and the quality of their freshness sets them apart. While a lot of competing florists only provide you with bouquets of lilies and roses, From You Flowers generously lets you choose between several different types. Plus, between their local florists’ efforts and their same-day delivery, the flowers you order will come fresh and beautiful.

On the whole, From You Flowers has a positive reputation, decent prices, and plenty of customer support. But because their variety and quality make them stand out, they present a great option for customers who value those factors.

Price

From You Flowers offers a dozen red roses on their site for $24.99. This is one of the cheapest prices for roses we found online.

Guarantee

From You Flowers has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. They promise to refund your money or redeliver a product.

Selection

Browse From You Flowers by occasion, flowers, or sale. In all, they offer over 1,000 bouquets.

Suport

    I ordered flowers for my uncle’s out of town funeral two days before the visitation. I received a delivery confirmation email the day of the visitation and was very surprised to arrive and not find my flowers. I immediately called From You Flowers and they asked if I had called the funeral home. I was standing in the funeral home. They put my on hold while they tried to get a hold of the florist but the florist was not available. I was issued a refund as it was too late to send them. Then a lady from the funeral home, who is also a local florist , called all of her florist friends to see who had the order. No one did. Then a florist called and said she had just received my order with the cancellation immediately behind it. From you flowers lied and was just trying to cover themselves! My order was never wired! I should have looked into the company first as bad reviews are everywhere. I’m not sure how they’re still in business.

    The damage has already been done. I ordered a nice bouquet for my grandma’s funeral. I had rush shipped hoping it would come the same day. Unfortunately that couldn’t be fulfilled and nicely told it was going to be delivered first thing tomorrow and got my rush shipping refunded along with a $15 credit.

    Here is where it got bad. I had originally wanted it delivered Wednesday, but I did not get the flowers until Saturday afternoon. I had to constantly call them every day wondering where my flowers are at.

    When the flowers finally came they were the most embarrassing set of flowers I have ever seen. They were nothing like the pictures and I was judged by my whole family. I called for a refund and only to get a 30% refund. No refund in the world could turn back the humiliation I received from the flowers I purchased. I went ahead and disputed 100% refund with my bank.

    I will never order from this company again and urge everyone else to never buy from this company again unless you want to be disappointed and embarrassed…

    worthless company.

    Did not get what we ordered.. Asked if it was possible, was assured it was….but,was not what we got! Very poor quality on what we did get… Called & only thing that was offered was a discount on sending us the original order….. Seriously, that’s the best you can do? Too bad the funeral is already over, would have been nice to have gotten what we needed

    I was sold on the same day delivery option. However, instead of a call to tell me that it was unable to do same day, they sent an email a short while later that they have rescheduled it for another day. I then called to cancel and they placed me on a very long hold to get me a cancellation number (they offered this, not something I requested). When they returned, they offered me a free upgrade. I refused and was placed on another long hold. This time they returned with another offer. The aggressive selling nature was ridiculous. I said that they are wasting my time, I must make other arrangements. The lady then snapped back and said she is going to put me on hold to cancel. After several moments, she returned to say they were canceled but no cancellation number was available. I will not be surprised if I have to dispute this charge with my bank. I say avoid this company.

    Worst baskets ever. They send wrong product and never fixed. Horrible selection. Not what was in picture. I’ve never dealt with such incompetency from a flower delivery company. My own fault. They have horrible reviews. Needs to be shut down

    Just like so many other reviewers, I had a terrible – almost laughable – experience with FromYouFlowers. On 2/7/17, I placed an order for flowers to be delivered to my wife’s workplace on Valentine’s Day, and of course paid an additional charge for holiday delivery. I started getting nervous late in the day when my wife hadn’t yet texted me a thank you for the flowers. I soon found out she never received them. I e-mailed the company asking for a full refund, and received an e-mail reply that the delivery had been made according to their records. We waited until the following day to make sure (maybe the ordered was received by the front office and not delivered to her?), but that was not the case. I e-mailed again, and was instructed to call their customer service line. I spent 20 minutes on hold and eventually hung up. At the end of the day (2/15/17) my wife finally received her flowers, and of course everyone in her office assumed I forgot Valentine’s Day and was trying to make up for it. Also, some of the roses were dead, and the arrangement was not nearly as nice as was portrayed in the online photo. I called again the next morning and finally reached a less-than-friendly customer service rep after another 11 minutes on hold. You would think that a flower delivery company would understand the importance of delivering flowers on the specified date, but that does not seem to be the case. She offered me an insulting 20% refund and a $10 gift card for my next purchase, which I balked at. There will not be a next purchase. After disputing the charge with my credit card company, I was finally issued a full refund.

    Ordered Valentine’s day roses a week before Valentine’s day to be delivered to my girlfriend. Valentine’s day came and she didn’t receive them. Received email after hours saying it was delivered. Girlfriend went in to work following morning and still no roses. Called customer service and no one ever picked up after 30 minutes. Emailed them, received response they will reply back within 6 hours, but they never did. Emailed again and same result. Valentine’s day ruined. SCAMMERS!!!!

    I have ordered flowers three times from this company in the past six weeks. All three times the orders were delivered late, in two cases the flowers were delivered an entire day late (the day after your birthday and the day after your anniversary just doesn’t have the same effect).

    Giving them one final chance, I ordered a dozen long stem red roses for Valentines day. They were ordered three days in advance yet they weren’t delivered until 6pm of Valentines Day after my girlfriend left for the day. A co-worker called her to let her know the flowers arrived and that there were only 10 roses in the vase, not 12. I’m done. I recommend that you call a local florist directly for better service and pricing.

    SCAM, STAY AWAY. This company is a terrible excuse for an organization. 0/5 if I could. I have not successfully connected with costumer service on the phone, which is available “24/7”, for almost a week now. This company finds all of the lowest end florists around the country that are trying to make the ends meet, and gives them a few bucks for an order in their locale. They not only rip YOU off, but they rip off low end shops to the point that these florists can only justify taking their scraps to make your lovely floral medley with. Even if it’s just scraps, you’ll be lucky if they’re at all fresh! First of all, this is just awful and pathetic. Second, getting flowers for someone is typically for a special circumstance, like a birthday, OR A LOSS. Doing business like this and not standing behind it, which is what I’d expect you to do because you know you’re product is awful, is despicable and disgusting.

    When I receive my money back, I will at least have a tiny amount of respect for your organization. I honestly don’t hold that in high hopes, however, in which case I will be having my credit card company rescind your fraudulent charges.

    Ordered flowers for valentine’s … still waiting the day after. Phone lines are down and only receive an automated email from customer service. This company is a joke and I’m just hoping that I can receive a refund.

    The other thing is that I would like to report them to Google, as they are listed as a TRUSTED STORE (that’s really funny), but because I checked out as a guest, I can’t submit my issues to Google.

    This company is one big scam artist and probably lost a lot of business from this terrible performance on the one day of the year that they had to perform.

    Valentine’s Day roses I ordered for my girlfriend through their website, never arrived. At $90 I thought it was a Med-to-High price but decided to go ahead with the order anyway.
    2 days later on V’s Day flowers never arrived. I was embarrassed. Tried to call and could not get through. Sent an email and they responded with not an apology for non delivery but for their phones not working. They had 1 job to do and they failed at it. They withdrew the funds immediately from my account.
    I’ve called regarding a refund but have not gotten through to anyone…nor have I received a confirmation regarding my cancelation and refund of my order. F***FromYouFlowers

    I am a man that sends flowers and over my lifetime I have sent hundreds of bouquets. I ordered two dozen roses for my new girlfriend. A girl I had been in love with for 18 years and finally had a relationship with. 1st Valentine’s day together I wanted to do it right. What she recieved is the worst flower arrangement Ive EVER seen. Tiny crushed roses so dead the edges were black. It looked like something a five year old made with dead flowers then stomped on….unbelievable. The grocery store had much much better for a 3rd the price….

    I ordered my wife a nice floral arrangement along with a box of chocolates. The cost was over $100.00. They said that I would receive my order on the same day, between 9:00 a.m. & 6:00 p.m. I ordered on line, very early that morning. I received an email response saying that they received my order, & it would be ready for delivery on the same day, before 6:00 p.m. I called several times to check on the status of my order & waited on the phone for up to 30 minutes each time. My order never came, then I received an email at 6:32 p.m. stating that my order was delivered to the recipient (My Wife), but it NEVER came. This company is a fraud, & I will report this company to the proper authorities. Do Not use the Floral Company for any occasion.

    The basket was cheap wire, the items weren’t arranged in a decorative fashion, But the worst part was they delivered a basket wrapped in Pink netting with Pink ribbons Pink balloons to the job of a 39 year old Man. Can you imagine his embarrassment and my embarrassment for him when he received it. And the card had his name on it. They offered me a $15 next order credit but I would prefer it as a bank card refund credit. I doubt very seriously I’ll be using them again.

    I have never written a review before, but I have also never experienced something like this. I ordered flowers for a funeral. I placed the order at 1:50pm this afternoon for a service tomorrow (delivery at 3pm). I chose this company because in their web-site advertisement they FALSELY state, “We Guarantee the Florist Arranged Flowers will be Delivered Today!” additionally, the website declares, “100% Satisfaction Guaranteed! Order with Confidence”. I paid for my order, which also had me pay an additional $17.98 to guarantee the shipping the following day by 3pm. At 9:15pm (over 7 hours after I placed my order, and when all florists are now closed), I receive a call from a representative at “fromyouflowers” stating that the florist called earlier in the afternoon and let them know they would not be able to deliver my funeral arrangement. They waited until 9:15pm to tell me this information and cared nothing about “guarantees” they publicize on their website. When I told them I wanted a refund, they stated they would have to check to see if this “could be possible”. They put me on hold and then the representative came back, as if she was proud, and stated, “my supervisor has allowed us to give you a refund in 2 business days.” I am allegedly getting back the money that I paid for, to an item they could not deliver, and for a funeral to boot. This representative acted as if I should be grateful. I will never do business with this misrepresented company again, and I strongly warn anyone else from using them for any reason. There are far better florists out there who understand what it means to be professional and stand by their representations. They need to change their website statements, it is fraudulent advertising.

    Paid for same day, order confirmed then said out for delivery. They did nothing when delivery was supposedly rescheduled. Kept me on hold an hour so far to try and scam me out of a refund. You will not get your order on time, they can guarantee that much and good luck with any refunds except a $3 insult for not doing their job. Stick to real companies.

    I placed an order on 12/23 and paid extra to have it delivered 12/24. The order went through with no problem with that delivery date. The next day, I received an email stating it could not be delivered until 12/26. I was refunded $2.99, even though Saturday delivery was a charge of $3.99. I was ok with that, since I understand how busy holidays are. 

    Now…this morning, I receive a call saying it cannot be delivered until 12/27, THREE days past when promised. I cancelled the order. Guaranteed satisfaction? Haha…NOT!

    I am very disappointed. This is the second time this has happened with this company. They tell me it will take 3 days for the refund. I guess you guys tend to run 3 days late with everything. 

    I have reached gold status with your company, but at this point, that means nothing to me. I will not be ordering ever again. Just hope I get the full refund.
