I was not at all impressed with The West Portal Flower Shop. It was highly recommended to me by a friend that awore by the freshness of the flowers and the artistic arrangements. I really found nothing out of the ordinary. Yes, the flowers were fresh, but the arrangements were simple and not creative. And the prices were expensive for the type of arrangements offered. I think that if you are going to buy flowers at that ridiculous price, then go somewhere that deserves the price.
