What better way to enjoy fresh flowers at a frequency of your choosing on a budget that you set?
Brooke will consult with you on site in the comfort of your home, office, or school to get a feel for the scale and style of the arrangements you require. The initial consultation is free of charge provided your site is within 35 miles of Old Town Alexandria. She will still come out to talk to you if your venue is further away, but will have to charge a fee.
Decide if you’ll splurge on custom vases you can keep, save money by sending the vases back when you’re done, or split the difference and we’ll come and collect them.
Subscriptions let you enjoy new flowers every month at special pricing. For a monthly price that fits your budget, you’ll get a fresh arrangement delivered to your business, your home, or both.
As long as the recipient’s address is within our delivery radius, you can vary where it’s sent. This means you don’t have to plan for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, et cetera since we already have you covered.
For example, if your budget is $60 a month, you’d receive a bouquet or arrangement every month worth that value for a $600 annual charge. That’s two months free! You can also split this so that you receive a $20 bouquet at work and a $40 arrangement at home.
Loyalty matters to us. We know you can chose another florist, so we want to reward you for coming back to Blooms of Paradise. After you’ve placed and paid for 3 orders, ask about a cash or check on delivery option.

In order to serve you better, we’ve turned off one click shopping.
Different flowers are available from the market every day. Our customers matter and we would rather talk, email, or text first so that you know what to expect up front. We don’t want you to accidentally order something that isn’t available and get upset. Brooke has seen a lot of retailers get online orders they can’t possibly fulfill and the resulting emotional fallout. Your transaction is supposed to be smooth not scarring.
On the bright side, sometimes certain growers have a surplus and we can alert you so that you save money. If you’ve ordered from us in the past, send an email to brooke AT bloomsofparadise.com to get flower gossip from time to time.
It is our goal to make your experience memorable. The more advance notice we have the better your arrangement will be. Saying something as quick as “I’m thinking about ordering something for my friend’s birthday next month” can be enough to give me inspiration and a head start.
Don’t forget that you can order flowers at the Four Mile Run Market. The Blooms of Paradise table lets you browse what we offer first hand and provides a way to talk face to face about your needs in an informal setting. Follow us on Twitter to find out when we’re there.
In order to receive arrangements of exceptional quality please keep the following time frames in mind:
1 month: This is the minimum time we need for a wedding, reception or event requiring more than 10 arrangements. This does not apply to restaurant subscriptions, since we already planned what your business requires. Statement pieces that are several feet in height would fit in this category.
2 weeks +: If you give us 14 days or more, this allows us to contact a quality wholesaler and source top notch exotic flowers. It still might be the case that the wholesaler can’t find certain blooms or colors. We’ll let you know right away and work out an alternative. Relax, we’ve got this!
1 week: Sometimes you can’t plan too far in advance. That’s fine. Generally, a week is plenty to get standard flowers and even some exotics. Depending on your availability, Brooke might be able to send you photos of the wholesaler’s cooler to give you an idea of what’s on offer.
A few days: If you’re looking for something in the next few days, we’ll do our best to accomodate you. The less restrictive you are with color selection and flower selection, the more likely you’ll be happy with what you get in this time frame.
Next day or same day: Brooke is happy to help you at the last minute, but please bear in mind that you might be the last person in a virtual line. Flower emergencies happen; faceless franchises tend to fail spectacularly in this department.
There is a big difference between same day and next day service. It’s highly likely that we can fulfill your order the next morning. If you’re ordering in the morning for evening or late evening delivery, it’s a squeeze. If you hold off until the evening, it’s unlikely that I can accomodate you.
If you have to have something now, we can’t necessarily offer the service you deserve or the selection you might want. While turning away a customer makes us both feel crummy, it’s preferable to overpromising and creating an angry recipient.
Wholesalers shut their doors in the early afternoon on a weekend. They leave around lunchtime. This means that you’re stuck with far less options if any at all.
Caveat Emptor: Longevity of arrangements that are ordered for same day service tends to suffer.
Large scale arrangements take a long time to craft.
As always, please ensure that your recipient or a concierge will be present if you’re delivering to someone’s home.
Payment is due when you finalize your order and we send you an invoice.
We accept PayPal.
For larger orders placed in advance, we accept US postal money orders or cashier’s checks.
If you’ve ordered from us before, we’re happy to take personal checks. We will charge you a fee for insufficient funds.
