Thank you for making my wedding day so much more beautiful with all of my amazing flowers. Especially my bridal bouquet - it was magical and I've received so many compliments on it. Thank you Tajah, and Ballard Blossom, for adding to the elegance, beauty and unforgetable memories of my wedding day.

Remember all those awkward high school
dances? Ya know, the formal ones where you get a corsage for your date and everything? Well, when you buy such items here they come out looking pretty darn spiffy. The staff are extremely nice and will answer any number of dumb questions for the flower novice.
Since high school I've ordered flowers several, several times from them for a wide variety of occasions. All of their bouquets manage to be elegant and simple. Nothing grossly over the top, and even if you don't quite know what you're looking for, the knowledgeable staff will ask you a few quick questions on what the flowers are for and will prepare an arrangement accordingly.
I also like how they're a member of FTD or whatever... whenever I need to send flowers out of state I just ring my local florist and either same day or next day a gorgeous bouquet of flowers is delivered anywhere in the country. Even though Ballard Blossom doesn't personally prepare flowers sent to someone in New York or California, I greatly enjoy calling in orders to Ballard Blossom since they're so darn nice.
Wednesday I ordered flowers for my wife's birthday today. Last night she told me she "might only work half a day" today. About two hours ago I called the store and talked to Jenna, to see if the flowers would get there on time. Just now got a big "thank you" call from my wife. Thanks to Ballard Blossom for (literally) going the extra mile to make my wife's birthday special!
Yesterday I received a dozen roses for my birthday and I must say... they look beautiful!
After a not-very-satisfying phone call
with my boyfriend, I was feeling pretty down. We have a long-distance relationship, and it's tough to not be face-to-face sometimes. So, I thought I'd send my plant-geek boyfriend flowers, extending the floral olive branch so to speak.
I called Ballard Blossom as I knew they were close to his apartment and could deliver the same day. The girl I spoke with understood exactly what I was talking about, even with my vague suggestions. I wanted a flower arrangement but didn't want it to be too girly, and it was also meant as a bit of an apology. She rattled off what she was thinking; simple, with some exotics, masculine etc.
Well, I got a call at work later that day. Those flowers made a huge impression (besides the fact that no one had ever sent him flowers before, I guess guys do like that too) and he was impressed by my thoughtfulness. He also was sure that I had given explicit detail about colors and style, because they actually co-ordinated with his apartment and the other plants in it.
So, to summarize, Ballard Blossom staff has taste and style, and worked magic out of my vague ideas. I will definitely shop with them again.
ps. The price was very reasonable too.
I absolutely loved my wedding bouquets, corsages, etc. that we got a couple weeks ago!! We wanted classy white flowers that were reminiscent of cherry blossoms while also being affordable (i.e. the flowers were not a budget priority at all), and I ended up being SO smitten with the flowers that I couldn't imagine anything else no matter what our budget could have been! I did the entire ordering/design process over the phone and by email with Jamie, and it was super easy! She knew all the questions to ask that I hadn't thought of. And for my bouquet, I had some unique ideas that they handled beautifully! Specifically, I wanted my unity candle taper to be integrated into my bouquet, so I could actually carry it down the aisle with me, lit. It was gorgeous! (I posted a photo) Also, when my parents picked them up (we didn't do delivery), everything was labeled with the person's name to whom they belonged. The whole experience was professional, artistic, and affordable. Thanks Ballard Blossom!!
Been ordering from Ballard Blossom online for years now. I live in San Diego, so never been to see the store. My mother is a gardener and plant lover and has been to all the nurseries and flower places. All of the plants I've sent her have been spectacular, knock-your-socks off, shock and awe specimens. You could spend a week looking for the best all over Washington, and not do better than anything from Ballard Blossom. And they don't know me from a turnip, just an anonymous online customer. Very impressed!
I have used other flower shops before and was NEVER happy. I have now used Ballard Blossom like 10 times and have never been unhappy I just tell them how much I want to spend and to use their artistic freedom and always its something totally cool and beautiful! Plus the staff is amazing super nice and helpful. Taj is the lady who helped me most recent she was fantastic!! I would highly recommend them to everyone!!!
