Substitution Policy

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers on a given day, at various times of year or in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. 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. We regret that contacting you to discuss needed substitutions is not possible; please place your order directly by telephone if you feel it imperative to discuss this aspect of your order.
