My mother ordered a large vase of fresh cut flowers to cheer me as I had been sick for a week. She advised flowers were to be delivered the afternoon of April 9. I phoned her @ 7PM to advise no delivery had been made. She canceled the delivery @ 9am April 10. At 11:30 David, driving a Brookshire Florist van arrived at my home with a delivery. Due to the poor condition of the flowers when they arrived I would not have accepted delivery had I not known they were sent by my mother. the flowers were unwrapped, three stems were broken, one flower was dead, no food or care instructions were included. There used to be an advertisement: ""when you care to send the very best....."" My advise is flowers are a wise choice for any occasion, however, choose your florist carefully!
Pros: flowers are always a wise choice
Cons: flowers arrived in harmed condition
