Shopping >Ballard Blossom
On the top ten list of things a guy
does not want to do on a Saturday off (when it's 85 and sunny) is pick out flowers for his upcoming exit party from the bachelors world........yes ladies, it's true, I'm getting married. Sorry...........But any way...... Saturday, sunny, Ballard Blossom and a promise I'm not getting out of. Sound hopeless?
Maybe I'm being a bit melodramatic.
It was was a very refreshing experience with customer service. The woman who helped us was knowledgeable, professional and nice. We got through the entire wedding plan (bridesmaids, bouquets and all the other stuff I knew nothing about) in an hour and after she brought out our estimated bill I was able to breath a sigh a relief. It was actually under budget!
...... before long I was halfway through a cold pint of Pilsner Urquel with the sweet smell of BBQ wafting through the air........
Thank- you, Ballard Blossom. Nicely done.
Came through with excellent customer service.
I have been using Ballard Blossom for years and have NEVER been disappointed! They are very easy to deal with, always on time and the flowers seem to last a week or more. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Ballard Blossom created the bouquets,
corsages and boutineers for my wedding. As evidenced by my 5-star rating, the experience was superb from beginning to end.
We met with the bridal florist (Jamie Stine) a couple of months in advance. I brought pictures of bouquets I liked, but was otherwise clueless about the particular flowers I wanted. I told her I wanted blue and white in the bouquets with green accents. Jamie knew what would be in season (and therefore cheaper) and guided us in picking out the right flower combinations. Jame took her time showing us lots of pictures and instilled in us trust that she knew what she was doing. She gave us the caveat that if certain flowers we had decided on together were unavailable or sickly looking on day-of, that she and her team would substitute with other flowers within our color scheme. The end result was absolutely wonderful! The flowers photographed beautifully and stayed fresh throughout the entire day. Every detail (down to the silk wrapping on the stems) was carefully executed. Jamie even labeled all the bouquets, boutineers and corsages with the names of the individuals they belonged to so that the groom's didn't get mixed up with the groomsman's.
The sales experience was totally low-pressure (which can be rare in the wedding services industry!). No one tried to up-sell us on more expensive flowers, and the staff was totally fine when I called a few days after our consultation to get rid of one of the arrangements (we decided we didn't need it). They didn't pressure us to get delivery either. The flowers were available for pick-up on the morning of the wedding which saved us the delivery charge. They have a parking lot directly east of the building which made it super easy.
Overall great experience. I'd recommend them to anyone planning a wedding.
I've ordered bouquets several times via
their website without problem. In fact once I clicked submit too soon and when I phoned the shop to edit my order there was not one delay or excuse or hint of attitude. So I was delighted to get their notice of their Christmas Open House. Probably should've remembered that the night before while I was accruing alcohol points to reach my hungover goal. Yep, I walked slowly around Ballard Blossom come Sunday morn cursing my want to drink that pint of beer in front of my face. I should get water when I'm thristy! But nooooooooooooooooooooooooo ... uh ...
But Ballard Blossom! Yes, a very lovely shop with some very patient women working and creating. There were several tables for demonstrating how to make a wreath or swag (hehheh, swag). And as I adore the living Christ (hehheh, Christ) outta of Christmas my weakened condition could not deter me from purchasing a Santa mat for the front porch, or a jeweled bird for the tree or an ornament of old-fahsioned keys clustered ... HEY! Oh well, they are pretty and I am part crow, ooooooooooooh shiny!
Good selection. I recommend this florist to anyone.
Do Not Use Bladdard Ballard Blossom. They charged my credit card 4 weeks in advanced. But chose to deliver the flowers at the last minute of the work day.They should not have accepted more orders than they can deliver on any particular day, regardless of the event, otherwise they needed to hire more drivers in advance or used other companies like FedEx and UPS as a backup.
Always Reliable! - My Favorite Seattle Florist. When I lived in Seattle, I used Ballard Blossom anytime I needed flowers delivered anywhere in the area. I recommended them to my sister for her wedding and her flowers were stunning. Now that I live in New Mexico, I still use Ballard Blossom when I deliver flowers to old friends and co-workers. I use them because I know the arrangements will be beautiful and they will be delivered on time, with care. They've also got a super fun selection of gifts so I love going in to shop around when I'm in town. I recommend them to everyone I know and will continue using them as my Seattle florist.
Love that floral smell. We have gotten flowers from Ballard Blossom for a long time and we are consistently pleased with the arrangements. When we visit the store, instead of calling in, I hardly ever leave without finding some goodie for myself or for a gift for a friend. I love the wonderful floral smell of the store.
Beautiful Flowers. I was very happy with my flower arrangement
