Flora2000 moved into the digital age more than a decade ago, and today it strives to deliver top-quality flowers and gifts with a personal touch. This online flower delivery service promotes floral designs and gifts with worldwide appeal, though its selection is not as extensive as those of the best sites. Its customers also support local businesses by ordering flowers from Flora2000, as it employs a network of local florists.
This flower delivery company specializes in pre-arranged bouquets, but if you live in the United States you can special order cut flowers without a vase from a local florist. We opted for a pre-arranged bouquet and it arrived looking colorful and fresh.
The Flora2000 website is attractive and intuitive, and it offers excellent products delivered in more than 190 countries. You can find products by occasion, type of flower, type of gift or special offers. You also can make use of the website's handy pull-down tab to search by price range so you find flowers online that suit your wallet as well as your recipient's tastes. The website also contains a wealth of information about different countries, including descriptions of cultures, trivia and facts, and more, along with a blog that describes such things as how to create a romantic mood or make a holiday special.
The company's chocolates are from top-quality manufacturers, and most of the floral designs have distinctive and refined sensibilities. The arrangements possess a certain subtlety and charm not found in typical floral designs.
Flora2000 has an attractive gift selection. You can purchase perfume, spa items, cakes (including a 2-pound red velvet cake), and gift baskets (or “hampers” as Flora2000 calls them) filled with assortments of wine, fruits, chocolates, crackers and other treats.
The get-well selection on this site is rather general compared to the best flower sites. It offers flowers, but no balloons with get-well messages, which most other services let you send. As for weddings, you can get floral arrangements for wedding table decorations, but the site does not have a section specifically for traditional wedding flowers. While these centerpieces or congratulatory bouquets are beautiful, you will need to contact another service or go to a florist in your area to get such things as handheld bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres.
Flora2000 provides sympathy bouquets in certain countries, but the site does not provide traditional funeral or sympathy flowers in the U.S. or Canada.
With this service, you can order flowers online and track your orders through email or the phone to ensure they arrive on time. You can get customer service through email, phone or live chat. The site offers a reminder service by recording the date of the event for which you have ordered flowers and sending you an email next time the event comes around, so you don't have to worry about forgetting the same anniversary or birthday in the future.
Using a network of local florists, Flora2000's strength is in its wide-ranging coverage, as well as some of the best flowers online as far as colors and arrangement styles go. It does not provide funeral or sympathy flowers in America or Canada, but you can send appealing bouquets, plants and gifts to a remarkable number of locations.
