I'm a music teacher in a small K-12 school. Every year, we sell Valentines as a fundraiser for the music department. In the past, we've almost lost money on our rose orders. I chose to buy locally one year, and due to the closeness of Valentine's Day, local rose prices were too high for our budget. I ordered from a different website last year, and the roses failed to ship on time, causing them to be delivered late. When they showed up after the designated date, they were wilty and lacked color and smell. This year, I found FiftyFlowers.com and decided to take the chance of an online order again. On top of the roses being delivered on time, they were fresh and had a wonderful scent. I'm 100% impressed with the company and will recommend them to anybody looking for bulk flowers at a reasonable price!
