Ava's Flowers and ProFlowers. Both of these companies had the same problem as Flower.com — they were great in some cities and awful in others, gathering both very high and very low scores depending on location. In Chicago, both companies sent the worst, saddest bouquets our writer received — the roses were shedding leaves and petals like crazy; some blossoms were entirely broken off; and the stems hadn’t been dethorned. So why include them on our list of companies to consider? Because in Seattle, both Ava’s Flowers and ProFlowers got perfect scores.
This week, our florists chose the most vibrant colours to create a beautiful new bouquet of the prettiest seasonal flowers. Composed of gorgeous yellow and pink stem roses, mauve phlox and dazzling 'Solomio Elsi mini dianthus', a few pretty branches of asparagus lighten the overall effect. This warm, generous bouquet will light up your home with it's magnificent colours.
While lovely, the FTD bouquet was not actually the most stunning arrangement we saw. Where FTD won us over was with its consistency in all four of our test cities — the company’s bouquets got top scores in Chicago, Seattle, and our two rural communities, which we discovered is hard to do. In Seattle, tiny purple buds accented the roses, and this delivery was the only one that included a little red ribbon around the vase. In our two rural cities, the quality of the roses was striking, although our Wisconsin-based recipient pointed out that each FTD bouquet had a lot more greenery than the pictures on the website suggested — which is good or bad depending on how you feel about greenery.

But do you know what the month of December would not be complete without? December’s birth flower! What is December’s birth flower? Well, it’s probably a flower that you already associate with that time of year. The December birth flower is the Poinsettia. The Poinsettia is known for their brilliant red and green star-shaped foliage. The scientific name for the Poinsettia is the Euphorbia pulcherrima, which translates to mean “very beautiful.” Do you have any friends born in December who deserve a “very beautiful” birthday flower delivery? The Poinsettia might be the flower for them.   History of the Poinsettia People have been fawning over the December birth flower for centuries.
