I knew the original owner John and Catherine Martin very well back in the early 1980's when our law firm represented him from his original store and into the major move to its current location.  Later I visited John at Ida Culver after his retirement when he turned the reigns over to his family.  He was the kindest gentle person and it was a privilege for me to be his friend.  Ballard Blossom Shop provided the flowers for our daughter's candlelight wedding in 1993 that were not only beautiful, but intimate and such a wonderful memory, later for family funerals and our own anniversaries and gifts to friends.  We always continue to order our special flowers whatever the occasion from Ballard Blossom.  John's legacy lives on together with quality, caring standards and personal touches. You will be very pleased as we have been now over decades. More...

Gorgeous place to host an event! They have a sound system and nice lighting. Taking one star off because we had to wait for them for a while at the end of our event so they could lock up, and because you have to pack out your trash. But I'd still recommend the venue because it's one-of-a-kind! More...

Got a beautiful bouquet for my birthday!! Thank you, Regan, cuz I know it was you ;)Oh my gosh, I read the reviews seconds after I posted my 5 star review. I don't know what has happened but I read below that the owner wrote something very unprofessional, however when I looked on FB, what I saw looked very appropriate so my five stars remain: "Thank you for the polite way you have inquired about this. We have always had a diverse group of employees, I’m sure if you have been in our store you would have been helped by a variety of people. We have not wanted to disparage this employee even though many hurtful and untrue claims have been made about us. The decision to terminate was based on standard business practices such as punctually and attendance among others. He has not reached out in any official way to address this, he instead posted inflammatory statements on social media and encouraged people to call me and text me with threats. We have spoken with an attorney and are hoping he will address this in an official manner instead through social media harassment. We are proud to be a part of this community and feel we are good community members. You are welcome to stop in and see me if you wish. Rachel (Owner)" More...

I called this morning and spoke to Heather about sending my wife flowers today before 3pm. I ordered the Skagit Valley Tulip bouquet, Heather placed me on a brief hold to verify with her driver a time that they could go out and was able to get them delivered sooner than expected. I placed the order at 9:30 and they have already been delivered at 11am. I want to thank Ballard Blossom but most importantly Heather for making my wife's day. This was a fantastic example of excellent customer service, so thank you Heather!! We will be placing many more orders in the future. More...

I love this shop. The flowers, the smells and the fun random trinkets (fun mugs, wine glasses, signs, ornaments). The staff are super helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a fresh arrangement or even just a unique and fun gift item. Arrangements I have seen are fresh and colorful. More...

Very happy with the flawless service. Ordered flowers online for a family member in Seattle and they kept me informed along the way. I loved the floral categories on their website. Very helpful to have "Get Well," "Happy Birthday," etc. I noticed that some other florists had  artistic, hipster websites but they were totally lacking in descriptions. I was looking for a "Get Well" arrangement, and Ballard Blossom had it. Thank you! More...

What a great example of top notch service and beautiful flowers/products! I've been using B.B. for a long time,over a decade and they've never once let me down. Their prices are great, especially for the A+ service! If more businesses could be like B.B., the world would be a better place. Don't hesitate to get your flowers, balloons, chocolates from Ballard Blossom. Also, get on their email list. The offers they send out throughout the year are great deals and such beautiful products. Thanks B.B.! More...

Ballard Blossom, thank you so much for making a difficult time of sickness and separation between my mom and I a little better, prettier, and brighter with the beautiful floral arrangement you prepared and delivered to her on my behalf! Literally being on another side of the country from her is not always fun, but you being around the corner from her to spread good cheer is just what I need! Thank you for helping me brighten my mom's day! More...

This company has  exceed my expectations in floral delivery and customer service. If my experience ( which ' I'll detail next ) is what they do daily for every customer , they got my business forever. I learned my niece had a horrific accident and was flown to  harborview medical center * in Seattle Washington. I began to check yelp for local florist and many populated the search .I came across " Ballard blossom " .searched the website viewing arrangements ,found one and called to see if they served the area ' I was told they could accommodate the order and delivery,  was also , told that they would verify with the hospital before delivery and I would recieve a notification of the order going out and once delivered.about 20 minutes after placing the order I got a phone from them explaining that they contacted the hospital and currently my niece could not have flowers in her room and that they would recheck the next day with the hospital to see if things have changed . Being in southern cali ' I had to trust this would happen , the next day , I got another call and they stated the delivery was going to happen , but before the delivery was sent " my niece was released from the hospital . I get a phone call that aftetnoon , from Ballard blossom * that they contacted the hospital and had found my niece was released and did I have a secondary address . I provided the address and was resured that after mothers day deliverys my order would be taken to the new address . Well I got that shipping and receiving notification  this afternoon . No other florist I've used has gone to the trouble to provide excellent customer interaction.  If your in the need for floral service " I highly recommend **** Ballard blossom *****You got a customer for life .I More...

I've been here twice now.  About a year ago I just walked in to get some flowers for my daughter's birthday.  I had no idea what I wanted.  None at all. I figured I'd just go in and ask for help.  Everyone in there was so friendly.  I told them what I was doing, told them her favorite colors, and how old she was and they put together a great little bouquet for my girl.  And the smile on her face when I gave her the flowers was perfect.  A couple of weeks ago was the daddy daughter dance.  I called on a Thursday to see if I could get a small wrist corsage done by Saturday.  Again...no freakin clue what I wanted other than her dress was pink and yellow for the Aloha theme and I wanted it to go with those colors.  They killed it!  It was beautiful and looked perfect with my girls dress.  Admittedly I reached out to a couple other florists for the corsage but Ballard Blossoms got my business because they were the most friendly.  This crew has my business going forward.

I live 350 mi away, and they deliver the same day free of charge. I didn't even have to ask. They are the standard of customer service every business should strive for. And the flowers are always (always!) the best quality. I will be a customer for as long as I live (and I intend to live a long life). Thank you More...

Ballard Blossoms never disappoints. I have use the many times to send flowers to friends and they always have unique beautiful creations.

My son and his fiancé had a small wedding at pikes place. She did not want a bouquet but instead a large wrist corsage. We sent Ballard Blossom a picture of what we liked and all of the exact flowers one available they meet a gorgeous full corsage out of roses.

It was perfect.

My wife needed some flowers to make her day better. She's never gotten flowers from me delivered to her workplace, but Ballard Blossom came through and delivered a Lily bouquet to her precisely at the time she was free between clients. She was surprised and a bit shocked I'm sure, but the flowers worked to make the disappointment in her life become less so tragic. Thank you Ballard Blossom for a job well done. More...

My husband sent me anniversary flowers from another florist and, well, let's just say that they were not as expected.   When I told him that I thought that the other florist had (grossly) overcharged him based upon what was received, he decided to send a replacement assortment from Ballard Blossom.  Unlike the initial arrangement from (other florist) the Ballard Blossom arrangement was beautiful.  I received it within a few hours of when his order was placed.  This arrangement was much more in line with what my husband and I would expect from a quality florist.

I had flowers sent to a friend and the entire experience at Ballard Blossom was great! The person on the phone was patient, attentive, and caring. My friend raved about the arrangement. The flowers were delivered just as promised, and the cost was about what you'd expect or even less. I'd absolutely use them again! More...

I ordered flowers for my wife for Mother's Day, and typed in the wrong delivery address.  Later, when I asked if she had received them and she told me she did not, I reviewed my order confirmation and found the problem.  I meekly called them, owning up to my mistake.  They promised to look into it, but I imagined my neighbor happily enjoying my flowers.  Within the hour my sent me a message with a photo of the beautiful arrangement with many thanks.  This is truly exceptional service!  Nice job BB!

I'm in Oklahoma. Family death in Seattle. I called Ballard's about rose sprays for the immediate female family members & single rose boutonnieres for the immediate family male members. The person who helped me on the phone was patient and willing to hear the description of exactly what I imagined would work best: I asked for black tape wrapping of the stems and narrow black ribbon streamers. The flowers arrived at the Seattle residence the day before I arrived; each was exactly as I had pictured in my mind. They were perfect in every detail, reasonably priced, and Ballard's staff working with me over the phone were kind and attentive even though the total price for 3 men's and 3 women's was a mere $121.00 including the delivery fee. THANK YOU EVERYONE AT BALLARDS FOR MAKING A SOMBER DAY BRIGHTER WITH YOUR TALENTS! More...

The flowers were absolutely gorgeous! Everything was a bit pricey, but pretty on par with wedding flowers. They did a great job to create the bouquets, communicate with me about what I wanted, and setup the flowers to survive the day without trouble. Sometimes I didn't get emails back right away, but most of the time they were good. More...

Ballard Blossoms is wonderful!  We live on the East Coast and ordered flowers for my cousin in the hospital in Seattle.  Ballard Blossoms emailed us to let us know she was on a floor which didn't allow flower deliveries, but they would call the hospital each day so they could deliver the flowers if she was moved to a different floor.  My cousin wasn't moved, and Ballard emailed the day she was discharged to offer to deliver them to her home (or we could have received a refund).  Since she lived a couple hours away, we asked if they could arrange to have a florist in her town deliver them, and they were happy to do that.  The flowers were just as requested.  Ballard Blossoms staff were thoughtful, responsive, and a delight to deal with. It was just like they were right around the corner instead of 3,000 miles away! More...

They couldn't fit my budget, but the quality of the work made me forget it on the day of. I spent $600 on 1 bride bouquet, 5 bridesmaid bouquets, 1 groom boutonniere, and 5 groomsmen boutonnieres, and 3 mother's corsages. I appreciated that after the consult, I received three options for "good/better/best" budget so I could weight the trade-offs and ultimately decide to exceed my budget for the big day. The bouquets held up well throughout the day and looked stunning in pictures! More...

I needed to order same-day delivery flowers for my mom-in-law. I called Ballard's around 10AM and a nice gentleman picked up the phone. I asked him if it would be easier for me to order myself online, but he was so kind to just take my order over the phone. His customer service was beyond EXCELLENT. He was so patient, answering all of my questions, and making sure the order was just what I wanted. My mom received the flowers by 1:30pm (downtown Seattle) and they are BEAUTIFUL! She sent us a picture, and they are top-quality! I received an email confirmation after I placed the order and then again when they were delivered. I spent around $50 for a beautiful arrangement that made her so happy. I highly recommend for any floral needs-- THANK YOU, Ballard's! More...

Rebecca was our florist. After wandering around picking out things that were our "idea", she and Sarah patiently and lovingly altered those picks into a spectacular outcome saving our image with our bride daughter and making our daughter much much happier than if we'd gone with our choices. THANK YOU! At each turn they had solutions which improved our ideas and then rented pedestals and coverings to up the ante again. A superlative collection of young florists, all of whom seemed to be very very talented and customer service oriented. More...

My son ordered a corsage for homecoming from QFC that was very basic 3 tiny roses. The morning before his dance we received a message from the QFC floral manager that she was canceling his order because she didn't have enough roses!!!!!!  Not a message to call back and figure out a solution but just cancelling his order!!!!  Once I heard message I immediately called Ballard Blossom. I've ordered a few things from them over the years and always LOVED their quality and creativity. I spoke to a gentleman and told him what happened.  This was Friday afternoon and he needed the corsage Saturday AM. He walked me through the choices on the website.  There was no issue with how quickly we needed it.  The corsage was delivered at 8:15 am  Saturday morning. Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much Ballard Blossom!!!! More...

I made my bridesmaid's bouquets out of silk flowers, but I got a little bit anxious about my own, real flower bouquet. I waited until 4 days before the wedding to order, but Sarah was super understanding and made me the most beautiful, perfect bouquet from a variety of succulents and thistles. She also set aside the extra foliage so that I could use it for my groomsmen's boutonnieres, and even left the roots on the succulents so that I could pot them for a lasting keepsake. THANK YOU SO MUCH, IT WAS EVERYTHING I WANTED! More...

After a family member took a nasty fall, I needed flowers sent to the hospital the same day. Not knowing the area at all or who to trust, I came across Ballard Blossom. Soon after I placed my order the flowers were delivered and they were really very beautiful.

I called late on Saturday to send an Easter lily to my Aunt. Unfortunately they were sold out. However, Cliff went the extra mile to refer me to other florists and giving me their phone number. Very appreciated as I live in Idaho and am not familiar with the area. After a few calls I found a place that delivered a plant for me. I'm impressed with Ballards professionalism and help, I'll definitely be using them in the future! Thanks Cliff!!! More...

I called around to several places for a birthday delivery to my girlfriend. I didn't know exactly what I wanted, but I had a sort of look in mind, range of colors, that kind of thing. Of all the stores I called, Willow at Ballard Blossom was BY FAR the most knowledgable, helpful, and pleasant to talk with. The flowers were delivered exactly when and where I asked, and the bouquet that she created was not only beautiful and exactly in spirit of what I had in mind, but also completely unique and wonderful in it's own right. I would highly highly recommend this place, and I absolutely will be returning to give them all of my flower-purchasing-related bizz in the future! :) More...

The options on their website were close, but not exactly what I was looking for which ended up being no problem. They helped me make the arrangement my own by changing some of the color choices. The arrangement arrived at yhe cemetery as scheduled and it looked perfect.  It definitely brightened up an otherwise sad occasion. Timely, professional, and beautiful quality! More...

Last week, a friend sent me some flowers for a special business success that i had. There was no one in the office to receive the flowers and the week-end passed. I received a call from Ballard Blossom who offered to bring a fresh arrangement today (tuesday). I felt bad and offered to pick them up since it was not their fault that my office was closed. I couldnt believe how wonderful and professional they were, gave me fresh flowers, a beautiful arrangement and I am certain that they had to replace the old ones, costing them money. I will be doing all of my future business with them, such a considerate and friendly company. More...

I own a small business also located in Ballard and have used them often for both business and personal.This last time I used them I was especially impressed with the level of customer service and felt a Yelp review was required.  I walked in to order flower delivery for the next day.  I looked through book found something I liked, picked a card and placed the order for delivery the next morning.  Around midnight I realized the person I was sending flowers to would be at work and emailed to change delivery address from West Seattle to U District.  I also asked that they place the personalized card in a larger envelope to make sure it was work appropriate ;).  Then I went even further to ask that I be texted a picture of the arrangement once it was complete.I felt like I was being such a pain but they emailed me early that morning letting me know they had changed the address and then later sent me a picture of the beautiful arrangement they had made.Really can't say enough about their customer service...!

I worked with Jamie Stine for our wedding June 7th. It was a wonderful experience throughout.  I was a "hands off" kind of bride who really knew nothing about flowers beyond what types of colors I wanted. and honestly wasn't that interested. There are honestly so many decisions to make in weddings, I was so happy to have someone so capable! She selected the flowers for the bouquet, boutineers and corsages. She communicated throughout, confirming the order before the wedding and even helped in selected from blooms for my hair. A very satisfying and efficient experience! I would recommend her to any brides I know. More...

I'm impressed with Ballard Blossom. They turned an "eh" situation totally around. My initial meeting to discuss flowers for my wedding was a bit lack luster, but I emailed Ballard Blossom saying that the consultant I met with was nice, but didn't have the passion or ideas that I need in a consultant and I asked for another consultant. Well they apologized and said they understood and gave me a another consultant who I absolutely love! Rebekah is the best! She's enthusiastic and friendly, she has great ideas and she is totally understanding of budget and my need to see examples of what the bouquets will look like. She gets the need for visual aids. She's even ordering in some of the flowers that we're thinking of putting in my bouquet and then doing a mock-up for me! And she made it clear that she's there for me and available to meet at the shop to chat about any other ideas or questions I may have before the wedding. So comforting. She's just so sweet and accommodating. I'd recommend Ballard Blossom to anyone for their wedding or other event! More...

Ballard Blossom saves the day! Ballard Blossom recently helped me when Costco cancelled a floral order two hours before it was supposed to be delivered. I was in immediate need of about 200 flowers, all the same variety. Ballard Blossom provided amazing customer service in helping to accommodate this request the weekend of Mothers Day by providing the needed flowers for our event. The flowers were simply gorgeous and of amazing quality. About two weeks later, the flowers still look incredible. I highly recommend Ballard Blossom for your floral needs. This is a great local florist who takes pride in the flowers they deliver, the service they provide and making sure the products they sell are top quality. You can save money by ordering elsewhere, but you really go get what you pay for. Thank you Ballard Blossom! More...

I live in San Diego, and I ordered a bouquet for my mom's birthday the day before.  On the day of, I called around noon to ask if it had been delivered yet, and the staff were very courteous and answered all of my questions.  He said they would email me as soon as the delivery was signed for (and they did, around 1PM), and my mom called a minute later saying they were beautiful flowers and she loved the colors and the vase.  Also, if my mom says she loves them then they must have been some pretty *amazing* flowers.  She said the person who delivered the flowers was very polite and made sure she was the person listed (some companies just drop the flowers at the door).  Prompt service, nice staff, good website, reliable company, and the price is very reasonable for a reputable flower delivery service.  I will definitely order from them again if I ever need flowers delivered in the Seattle area.

My hubby and I live in California, but were having our wedding in the Seattle area & found Ballard Blossom right in the neighborhood where we were having our event. Rebekah was great.  She sat down with us 6 months before the wedding & carefully went over what we were looking for.  She gave us many options & I really felt like she wouldn't be happy until my vision had been reached.  She kept in touch with me over the months which kept me from worrying about everything falling into place.  They delivered it all on time & it was beautiful.  I was incredibly happy with the outcome.  The bouquets were amazing & my sweetie loved the rustic boutonniere's.  Fabulous job & great customer service!!

My wedding flowers were beautiful and perfect. I owe it all to Shannon Sibbald at Ballard Blossom. Before I went to Ballard Blossom, I had hired an independent floral designer to do my wedding flowers, but I actually had to fire her because she was hard to reach, couldn't give me any pricing and wouldn't talk to me about specific flowers we would be using. It was all very mysterious. Six weeks before the wedding, I walked into Ballard Blossom and was immediately relieved and impressed by the service. I showed off my Pinterest and explained what I wanted. We talked about some options and I received a quote the same day. I was thrilled to learn that I could have exactly what I wanted without going over my budget. The bouquet, table centerpieces and ceremony arrangements looked absolutely gorgeous - and exactly as we had discussed. Shannon was able to use a piece of my dress to wrap the bouquet, she used vases that I purchased with pretty river rocks and fabric that I provided for chair decorations. She was super sweet, accommodating and actively communicated with me by phone and email. Every time I went into the shop, whether Shannon was there or not, someone knew who I was and was able to help me.Hooray! I love Ballard Blossom! More...

I've never posted a review on Yelp before but the experience I had 5 minutes ago deserves one. I went in to buy my lovely wife some flowers for Valentines Day.  I picked out an arrangement that, to me, looked great. I paid the full price (wasn't cheap) and arranged to pick it up tomorrow morning. I guess I'm not a keen judge of the health of orchids because the woman I bought them from called me an hour later and informed me that their "plant person" (the resident expert)  saw the arrangement and said the orchid didn't look to be in good health. She helped me pick out a new flower over the phone to replace the inconspicuously dying one. The point is, I'm a dude and apparently have no idea what a healthy orchid looks like. The thing would have lived at least past tomorrow which is what I bought it for. Instead of treating me like a sucker they treated me like a person. Thank you Ballard Blossom. You earned my first Yelp review ever. More...

I have both ordered flowers from Ballard Blossoms and received them as well (lucky me!).All of my ordering has been over the phone and it is super easy.  I give them the address for delivery, a ballpark amount, details about the event and let them design an arrangement.  I have never been let down - the flowers have always been well received and highly appreciated.  For non local deliveries, while Ballard Blossoms does not create the arrangements themselves they have always shown good taste in choosing the details of the arrangements.As a recipient, I have been nothing but please.  The flowers are always gorgeous, never a wilted or browning bud in the bunch.  The roses are especially impressive; the blooms are large and silky, while the buds are tightly coiled and have always opened up well. I like their vases as well - even the plain clear glass vases are well formed and of good quality. More...

I hop into Ballard Blossom from time to time when I need a special arrangement to give to a friend or client.  I am never disappointed!  They have a nice assortment of arrangements available at any time.  What's even better, as soon as I walk in, one of the florists will always come out from behind the counter and ask me what I'm looking for. If they don't have it, they'll make it, with great flower suggestions and an eye on the price.  I don't go there often, but when I do I'm never disappointed. More...

Ballard Blossom created the bouquets, corsages and boutineers for my wedding in 2011.  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 lived in Ballard for 11 years and when it came time to plan my wedding I wanted to keep it local! I met with Shannon on my initial consultation visit. She was friendly and knowledgeable with the seasonal selections and offered several creative ideas within my budget to deliver the most gorgeous arrangements for my reception. I had a vision of my bouquet and Shannon and her team executed it to perfection! They were on time and had the ceremony site set up beautifully. I was beyond impressed with their level of service and professionalism and would recommend Ballard Blossom to family and friends. More...

They are good at what they do and they do a lot of weddings. I did not feel like my day was anything out of the ordinary for them, and that was a little disappointing. The flowers did not last long, unfortunately. But, the bridal bouquet was gorgeous!!! They weren't very social, a little to business-like. But their ability to get it done made up for it. More...

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!!

Ok, I haven't set foot in this store either, but my boyfriend sent me flowers from here!  I probably have good memories because they were my first flowers (you know in the beginning when they do stuff like this?! haha) and I was totally taken by surprise.Someone (from Ballard Blossom, I presume) came into my work with these flowers.  I was completely embarrassed and surprised, especially because we had a lot of customers around. I received the purple lisianthus and limonium in the green vase with the hugging teddy bear and a note.  The flowers were beautiful (though I suspect dyed) and were very healthy when they arrived.  They lasted quite a long time (I want to say about two weeks) and I was very happy with them.I know my boyfriend didn't order them off Ballard Blossom.  He ordered them off some other website that distributed the work to local florists.  He did not report any customer service issues either. I was a little hesitant with the 5 stars simply because I haven't been inside, but with my experience it was all great and 5 stars-worthy. More...

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. More...

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! More...

We used Ballard Blossoms for our wedding flowers - they did our personal flowers (bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages). I was so happy and impressed with the way they turned out, they were so beautiful. I had a really hard time expressing what I wanted - I just knew general flowers and colors I kinda liked and what I didn't like but I wasn't able to put my ideas into clear ideas. Tajah did a wonderful job of taking the bits of info I gave her about what I wanted, and turning my ideas into exactly what I wanted. She is a mind reader! The flowers were fresh and beautiful. Tajah was patient and wonderful to work with. The price was perfect for us. The flowers were ready when they said they would be. I really couldn't have asked for a better experience! A+ More...

We met with Taj Downey, who helped us pick what types of flowers and arrangements we might like by showing us numerous "decks." I didn't have fabric scraps with me at the time, but she was still able to use our descriptions to put together creations that matched our colors very well.

I think they charge a standard $150 / bridal bouquet, because when I asked about potentially changing the types of flowers to make it less expensive, she said she'd just change the numbers of each flower type she would use and charge the same amount. Since we had a bit of sticker shock, we asked if we could trim down some of the bouquets to make them more affordable. It took some time for her to get back to us (a week? I forget by now...), but she did provide us new estimates. We even considered cutting rosebuds from my husband's (family's) backyard and making the corsages ourselves, but we needed to use a professional to ensure that we had enough young buds (rather than full-blown, open roses) available on wedding day.

I really appreciate that Taj called us a few days before our final invoice was due to remind us, because I had been traveling and completely forgotten about it! She also let us change our order pretty late in the game -- cutting out centerpieces, adding extra corsages). We had an AM wedding, and even though their storefront isn't open until 8, they made sure someone was available for us to pick up our flowers at 7:30 (we didn't want to pay the delivery fee).

So yes, going with any professional florist is pricey, but Ballard Blossom's prices were reasonable, and we used them for our bouquets & corsages. The rest of the arrangements / church decorations we got at Pike Place Market for $5-$15 each ;) They would have cost another $200 if we had a florist do them anywhere else...

My future mother-in-law ran around Seattle the week of our wedding to look for the perfect flowers for our ceremony.  It wasn't your usual wedding ceremony - it was a Thai water ceremony.  The MIL wanted flowers to cover the basin of the water bowl, all the while laying on top of a small pedestal.  This meant the flowers had to have a particular circumference and the arrangement needed to consist of flowers that could be thrown in a wreath shape.Of all the places she contacted, only Ballard Blossom could envision what she was talking about.  On the day of our event, she went to pick it up and could not stop gushing about how perfect it it was!  Our ceremony pictures were that much better because of the beautiful arrangement.  The price was a little steep, but well worth the money!

It's not a very common occurrence to walk into a flower shop, but the few times I've been in Ballard Blossom it's been a pleasant experience.The setup is fairly nice with a number of plants and flowers in the front with staff arranging bouquets in the back. On the side is a small arrangement of flowers that really does smell fresh. It's like walking into my garden, just without the towering man-eating weeds. On the counter are a few books that you can peruse if you're not sure what you want. Word to the wise: they do offer some things that you can find at FTD.com that aren't in the book.The staff has been uniformly helpful and their suggestions have been spot-on. Conveniently, they are open 6 days a week (closed Sunday). The delivery range is fairly wide ranging from Issaquah to Tukwila to Mill Creek. Deliveries have been on-time, although a instruction was missed once (thus the 4 stars instead of 5). But I'd certainly use them again though.You've probably seen their distinctive black vans whizzing along the roads of Seattle festooned with the company logo on the side. There are so many vans around sometimes I've idly wondered where they're going. To a church for a wedding arrangement? A sick friend in the hospital? To a lover back from a long trip? To a mistress having a torrid affair in a Super 8 hotel room?I can't answer those questions. But I can say that whatever your reasons for flowers, Ballard Blossom is a pretty good place to get them.

Very nice variety of plants, bouquets and gifts.We stopped by here on the way to the hospital to visit a new addition to planet Earth.  However, the timing was the day before Valentine's Day, so you can imagine the chaos.  The store was packed with men of all ages coming to gather their required token for sex.  We snickered, since we never really participated in the sex for chocolate and flowers routine.  It's easier just being a hussy!  And more fun.  But aside from that, we had a fun time looking at the beautiful plants, garden gnomes, and stuffed animals.  We settled on a lovely azalea plant that was trained to grow like a tree.  It was very reasonably priced.  So much so that we splurged on a stuffed toy too.The staff roaming the store was especially friendly and helpful, even in the environment of count down to cupid's curse.  However, the poor woman working the register seemed to be completely new to the store and to using a register.  We took pity on her since we were fairly sure some of the other clients may not.Needless to say, it's an easy stop to grab flowers to make someone smile.

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. More...

I received a special delivery from Ballard Blossom on my birthday a few days ago. A dozen long-stemmed red roses--so fancy! Long story short, I don't know who they were from. Since I've always wanted to be a detective, I emailed them to see what kind of information they could give me about the order-er. I got a prompt reply, and while it didn't solve the mystery, it was an excellent clue. Plus they wished me a happy birthday too! I'll keep them on my list of witnesses... More...

The missing star is only because I have neither been in the store, nor even called them.  I haven't had to, and don't think I will.  But if I should find myself in the neighborhood with time to kill, and I go in and it's cool as it sounds, this will be updated to a five.I have been fortunate to receive their bouquets in the past.  They can't exactly be described as avant-garde or cutting edge, but that's often not  what's called for depending on the occasion and recipient.  They are always fresh, beautiful, arranged well and packed sturdily for transport.I had occasion yesterday to send flowers, and chose Ballard Blossom after scoping out a few of their competitors.  I wanted a simple few lilies as a sympathy gift, to a residence.  I feel that sometimes less is more, and a giant elaborate arrangement would have felt a little inappropriate for the situation.  I notice that on some flower delivery sites, the shopping cart attempts to overcategorize in this regard.  "I'm sorry, a small lily vase means 'Thank you.'  For 'Sympathy,' you must choose one of these giant overdecorated white things that look like they belong in a Vegas wedding chapel."  Not so at Ballard Blossom.  You can pick what YOU think is appropriate.The prices were also very competitive.  What I wanted cost more at the other sites I checked, by the time delivery fees were said and done.I placed my order online at 9am, and received an email confirmation that they had been delivered at 2pm.  My giftee said that they arrived looking and smelling beautiful and fresh, and that ferns and greens had been used nicely to offset them.  (Because, you know, three or four lilies will start to get kinda top heavy in a vase without some filler.)  I don't think I'll even bother price checking around next time.  I'll use Ballard Blossom again and again.

To be perfectly honest, I have never set foot in Ballard Blossom, nor even ordered from them in any fashion. However, I do receive flowers from my boyfriend fairly often (never because he is in trouble, only because he is awesome and just buys me flowers just because) and they are always beautiful.And I just realized yesterday that he's been getting them Ballard Blossom.In fact, I asked him where he was getting the flowers, but he refused to say, but then I saw the wrapping sitting outside. Sorry, babe, I wasn't looking for it, I swear!My point is, I have received many a gorgeous arrangement from him, and I am now sure that they were all from BB. I have no idea how much they cost, but whatever it is, it is worth it, as they always look great, last a long time, and he keeps going back.To me, it's a win win win situation.Keep up the good work, Ballard Blossom!

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! More...

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.

My lovely Susan and I have been happily married for 16...or is it 17? (Just kidding, I remember!) 17 blissful years now. We've known each other for 19 years so we're really close. However, in all those wonderful years and especially the early ones, I must confess, Ballard Blossom has bailed me out of some potentially cold and lonely nights of sleeping on the porch (again, Kidding?) In all seriousness though, they have helped me apologize the right way for misunderstandings and nicotine stimulated knee-jerk reactions to my flower-loving, lovely, witty, wonderful, gorgeous, snuggle-muffin, model-like wife. Fortunately for me, she now has her own garden full of flowers and all I have to do is take pictures of them for her from time to time. But, I still like to get her flowers on occation, as a surprise, and Ballard Blossom is The Place to go. They have really friendly and knowledgeable staff to put together a wonderful and colorful arrangement for the love of your life or if in a pinch, they have prearranged bouquets in some nice vases to choose from. They also have great cards and gifts for the really desperate...I mean adoring spouses/loves. And there's plenty of parking in their lot and on the street. Either way you sneeze it, It's a win-win situation. More...
