    I have a friend (girl, not romantic relationship) I want to send flowers to for her birthday. I'm in another state btw.

    - need to get there for Fri, 8/28

    I've looked at a lot of sites so far but they have horrible reviews so i'd love to here the communities voice on the issue and your top recommendations. Please suggestions only from people who have made purchases.

    - Who's the best price, reliability, etc.
    - Obviously I should avoid red/roses... What would you suggest for female friend non intimate. Color? Flower Type?

    THANKS BHW :D :tee:

    Almost forgot I've looked at these sites so far:
    proflowers.com
    teleflora.com
    ftd.com
    1800flowers.com

    All the above have had miserable reviews :(

    I used the ftd.com and sent to a friend in another state.

    What they do is find a local florist (in your friend's state)who is affiliated with them and send it her. That way the flowers will look nice and fresh.

    Hope that helps

    Don't do pro flowers. They are a rip off.

    Ok, so I ordered flowers from www.FTD.com as mentioned above.

    My recipient was happy and the flowers looked good (I asked her to take a photo to make sure she got it as described on the site). :)

    Delivery was also on-time. :)

    Pricing / Shipping: Reasonable (compared against 3 other large flower sites)

    Checkout process was easy :)

    Overall experience: very satisfied, would recommend.

    ........................ So that's my review BHW hope this helps any of you in need of this kind of service.
