We have talked about the benefits of finding a local professional florist quite often. Today a fellow professional florist from Anaheim, CA came across an online flower consumer’s blog about the poor quality of flowers from FTD.com called FTD FAIL.
The consumer, Chris from Tacoma, WA, received a mailer that included an advertisement from FTD florists for what looked like a beautiful arrangement.

When he actually ordered the flowers, the reality of what arrived at his home was much different.
Here is a little of what Chris had to say about the wonderful arrangement he received:
“See the candy canes in the first arrangement? Notice how they’re nestled snugly within the thick mass of verdant flowers? I tried doing that with the arrangement we got, but it was really hard to hang them on thin air, so I gave up. And notice how the flowers in the ad are really pretty, and the ones we got are stupid? The only thing the flowers we got share with the ones in the ad is the rectangular vase, and it’s obviously not up to the task of holding the miserly arrangement shown above.”
