Very kind staff, nice selection. They let my young daughter use their restroom when the Subway at 10th & Jefferson wouldn't even as customers there for lunch.

Today is my one year anniversary and I was just surprised with such a beautiful bouquet. Gladiolus are my favorite kind of flower and I have all my favorite colors here too! The lady that helped my girlfriend learned what today was for us and was kind enough to give us one rose just in the center. Thank you for such a lovely arrangement! More...

Just came out of market and I was loading my car another car pulled up and asked me to close my door, as I did this my large vases fell out and shattered everywhere. I was so upset, but the person pulled in and had me shut the door was an employee and replaced the vase. So very nice. There are still some human kindness in this world. More...

Elayne at Oakland Florist was a pleasure to work with for our wedding! She was willing to work with us even though we had a smaller order (cascading bridal bouquet, boutonnieres/corsages) unlike some other florists which have minimum spends. Her pricing was reasonable (even on Mother's Day weekend) and presented many options for us. On the day of the wedding, she delivered the flowers at the designated time and they were beautiful! Tip: She was busy most times when we walked in and we ended up having to wait to speak with her, so we started making appointments which was very helpful. More...

Although the flowers are fresh and they sell in large grower's bunches, it is not straight wholesale like you would get on Brannen Street in SF. However, if you can't make it to SF, this is the best option for larger quantities of flowers at somewhat below retail cost in the East Bay. And yes, their staff is not very friendly or helpful. With the price of real estate shooting up in Oakland, my hopes for a real wholesale market (multiple vendors, better pricing) are crushed. More...

My first check-in at Oakland Florist was Saturday, January 27, at 3:00 PM.The purpose of my visit was to meet with my sisters and brothers to select funeral wreaths for the passing of my mother. The owner, Elayne Su, allowed us to go through the photos on her tablet to determine which wreaths we wanted to ordered and delivered to the mortuary this coming Friday. It took us some time to select the floral spread for the casket and six funeral wreaths.I was glad that my two sisters-in-law were with us American born Chinese. I would have been at a loss to figure what needed to be done. They are more knowledgeable of the traditional Chinese customs. Elayne was also helpful and pleasant. She answered questions that we had. Because I was short on cash, she was kind enough to allow me to return two days later to pay my share for the funeral wreaths. Thus, the second check in was to take care of business.Finally, the funeral wreath I selected is my high school colors - purple and gold (yellow flowers). Purple is also my mom's favorite color.Rating is 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars. More...

My dad suddenly passed away about 2 months ago, and my siblings and had to plan his funeral. It was an extremely difficult time for everyone involved. My mother was in China at the time visiting her relatives for my granddad's funeral, and her relatives there requested specific Chinese style standing sprays; different groups of relatives brought one, and needed formal family title labeling which we don't know about, since we were raised in the US.  Eylane, the owner was very sensitive with our situation. She made time to meet with us multiple times within a week as well as through the phone to sort out all the details. She had an iPad full of her recent work (portfolio) and was very organized. She even gave suggestions on what colors we should pick for flowers, and which types of flowers to satisfy any superstitions of Chinese culture that we knew little about, that may have been important to my dad. Such as... since my dad was relatively young, certain colors and types of flowers covey a certain message to our Chinese relatives. She helped us write the ribbons for the sprays, a message to our dad. Delivery was included since it was within Oakland. The sprays arrived before we arrived (1-2 hours earlier than the funeral start time). My siblings and I are extremely grateful for the care, sensitivity, promptness, and beauty Eylane put in her work for our dad's funeral. The funeral was beautiful. We were able to see our dad's physical form one last time with beautiful flowers all around. As for pricing, the sprays were around $50 - $100 cheaper compared to Mei Wo Florist on Webster Street, also in Chinatown. More...

I needed last minute flowers to decorate a birthday party in a Chinese restaurant nearby. I had strict requirements since they needed to fit into flimsy pedestals. The owner, Elaine , helped me pick a bright bouquet and steered me away from cultural taboos which I appreciated. She did not try to oversell me nor did she make me feel bad for not picking the most elaborate expensive arrangements.The display was better than I had hoped for and they even delivered it for free since the venue was nearby. Check out the photo. It really came out beautiful. I'll use them again. More...

The owner was very sweet and generous. She could have overcharged me without me knowing but didn't. Very honest. This is the type of thing that earns my business. She even rewrapped the flowers very nicely when I told her it was a gift. Pleasantly surprised. More...

With less than two months until the big day, I was still debating whether I wanted to do my own flowers or use a florist. One of my bridesmaids took floral classes and would often do arrangements for centerpieces. She had done flowers for friends, so I was considering asking her. However, since she was a bridesmaid and busy with other duties, I decided to go with Oakland Florist.My parents and I went to inquire and spoke with Elaine. She was very nice and friendly. She went through the breakdown of the different bouquets and boutonnieres. The prices were reasonable. She gave us a business card and said that we only needed to contact her a week prior to our wedding. At that point, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to use and was still thinking of what colors, but she gave me some good ideas and showed us her portfolio. After doing some research, I found a bridal bouquet online that I really liked. It was blue hydrenias with off cream roses. The bridesmaids and groomsmen wore the color of Bluebird, a shade of light bluish, purple, kind of a periwinkle. Our second color was the cream. So I decided to use the off cream roses for the bridesmaids and junior bridesmaid. Parents of the bride and groom would have a double purple orchid, while the aunties had a single purple orchid. Off cream roses were for all the uncles and carnations were for our helpers.Bunny and I met up with Elaine one week prior to the wedding with the order of exactly what we wanted. I showed her the photo of the bridal bouquet. Hydrenias are not typically in season during Autumn, so they had to be kept in water. She said that she would have them in water until the last minute. Then while putting the bouquet together, she would keep some water where the stems were, in order for the flowers to remain fresh.  Although orchids were not in season, she said she would do her best to find everything we wanted and needed for our special day. We decided against centerpiece for each table, but wanted one for the head table.With so many things to get done in the morning, we were unsure if we could pick up the flowers that morning, so we were happy when Elaine offered to deliver them. The drop off time was one hour prior to our wedding at our venue, which was in Emervyille. That gave us enough time to distribute all the flowers and boutonnieres to our bridal party and families. One of my bridesmaid was there to meet Elaine and she was very prompt. Everything in the boxes were organized and easy to sort out. and When I saw my bridal bouquet, it  was exactly what I had wanted. The head centerpiece was also beautiful. The boutonnieres were fine and the bridesmaids bouquets were nice. I wouldn't say they were the best flowers in the world or the most elegant, but they were pretty and simple looking, which , which is what we were going for.I would recommend Elaine and Oakland Florist for those looking for a florist.

Maria is my florist at my wedding. I love the bouquets and the boutonnières she made. Her price is really competitive! She is very professional and knows the trend! The ribbon she picked for the bouquets exactly matches the color of my bridesmaid dress. Just my bridesmaids' bouquet is a little smaller than I thought but still looks pretty!  : D More...

Uncle was shot to death a couple weeks ago. Didnt have time to plan where to get flowers from on top of everything else we had to do. Stopped by Oakland Florist 25 minutes before work, and was greeted by Maria.I told her I wanted to order a floral arrangement for the casket.. with all roses. And she showed me a picture from on of the books. Picked out the color, and then ordered another foral arrangement for 100 dollars. I told her the story of my uncle, and she told me she would take care of everything.Floral arrangments were delivered to Grant Miller Mortuary on time, and they looked beautiful.Maria is a pleasure to work with; I was in & out of the shop less than 10 minutes.

Wow I had such a great experience at the Oakland Florist. I was shopping around and was quoted a $3.50 per stem for some calla lilies. I called another florist across town and was quoted $10 for the same flower. Uhhhh...I called back the Oakland Florist and was pleased to learn my order would be ready the next day. The lady on the phone was super excited to get me the freshest calla lilies straight from the flower depot. My order was ready bright and early the next day at 8 AM. A really pleasant experience, I will be sure to return for more the next time I'm in the dog house. More...

I was a bride on a budget. We were going to do our own flowers for the wedding, and then a friend took us to Maria. We quickly threw the silly notion of making our own flowers away, because Maria's were sooo affordable (REALLY!!), and she was knowledgeable about trends, flowers, and what goes well together. For an indecisive bride like me, she was perfect. We wanted a wild, natural garden feel to our bouquets, and we got what we wanted. They were LOVELY. My husband and I both thought it matched my personality perfectly :) We also ordered boutonnieres, corsages for the bridal party, family and officiates, and a lovely hairpiece for me. They were ALL gorgeous and simply perfect, even though I didn't give her exacting details or had to tell her too much. She's experienced and she knows what she's doing. The best part was that it didn't hurt our pocket! I especially loved the hairpiece she made for me, which I had imagined would be horrible. Now that the wedding is over, I shudder to think of what it would have reaally cost us if we had attempted to DIY those ourselves. An important tip: When discussing flowers with Maria, it's important to let her know your budget and she can adjust the size of the bouquet to match that, so you don't need to compromise on the type of flowers you love but still get them at a price you love! She's a sweetheart, and offers little freebies here and there (especially when your order is large), oh and she'll call you on the day before to remind you (just in case you're so busy you might forget!), and the flowers arrived packaged prettily in boxes with covers. The only reason why this isn't a 5-stars was because my flowers looked a little dehydrated after being driven from Oakland to San Anselmo (about 45 minutes?) and I wish she had taught me some precautions to prevent that. But that day it was REALLY hot, so it's probably not her fault. Everything was still really really lovely though and they somehow managed to survive until the night :) More...

Maria is the best!  I've been working with Maria for over 15 years on annual dinners for my professional organization.  These dinners have over 350 guests and Maria provides the centerpieces for the tables.  She has never failed to deliver.  She was so good, I asked her to provide flowers for my father-in-laws funeral this year.  Again, top notch flowers and fantastic service.  Our flowers arrived well before the service and were exactly as promised.You can't go wrong here.
