Reviews and Comments:
I wanted to send a BIG thanks for an arrangement sent to my aunt for my uncle's passing a few weeks back. I was told the flower arrangement was beautiful and a step above many others there. Thank you Necia! and thanks for listening to my needs and taking the time to go beyond and serving them. You were great to deal with.
I just wanted to send a quick note.
Thank you so much for all your hard work on the flowers. They were beautiful and better than I ever expected.
Thank you again,
I live in Colorado springs, my mother lived in Laguna Hills in a nursing home. I used them twice for Mothers Day 2011 and 2012, top notch service. I was in California for Mothers Day 2012, the arrangement provided was the nicest I have ever seen. My sisters live in Ca, they bought flowers themselves and Petal Peoples arrangement was bigger than my sisters flowers combined. Necia made up this arrangement. I trusted her to do something nice and wow was I pleased. I have paid the same amount in the past from different florists and was ripped off. I would not hesitate to recommend Petal People, they are above the best. I give a five Starr rating.

WOW!! I live out of town and found this florist by trying to locate a florist that would deliver to the Irvine area. After being drawn to the name, I called Petal People and was introduced to Necia. Through the years, I have continued to call the Petal People Florist for some significantly unique requests and to deliver to some business that are very, very difficult to get into. One time, I needed to have some actual chicken soup delivered with some flowers. Necia went to the store and made it happen!!! It was the most thoughtful gift the recipient said he had ever received! Each time I have called, Necia has come through with innovation, over and above services and she takes the order with a delightful and enthusiastic spirit. The flowers have always been fresh, awesomely designed and consistent! If you want a pick-up for your own heart, put in an order, and you will be uplifted just by the conversation! The recipient of your thoughtfulness will receive a beautiful gift that has been made with creativity and love! Thank you Petal People Florist!April 23, 2013

Richmond CAThank you for the exceptional service you provided and especially for including a photo of the arrangement. In the past, whenever I've sent flowers to someone, I could only hope that the arrangement was nice since I had no idea what it looked like. I received a call from the recipient to thank me and to tell me how truly lovely they were. Now I'm able to see for myself what she meant... the arrangement is beautiful!!!
I just wanted to "THANK YOU" for the beautiul flowers you sent to my Mom, Joyce H. She is the one I called you to send flowers to because she was diagnosed with cancer. She told me the flowers could not be more beautiful.
I can't thank you enough for putting in the extra effort for her. It makes her smile everyday and that was my goal. We will continue to use your services when needed.
Thanks so very much again,

Thank you soooo much !
Angela called me first thing this morning to tell me about them. She
was extremely excited! She said that she loved the wooden box idea and that the orange flower with the plantings was such a cool idea! She went on and on about how much she loved all the different creative things that you come up with, and the uniqueness of each, is a gift in itself!
What a blessing to have you located exactly where you are, as you have been my special messenger of love to my daughter for several years. I am deeply grateful. I just wish you lived all over the country so that when I send flowers, you could be the one who arranges them!
Thank you for sharing your gift of creativity and care with so many, and for brightening our lives because of your special touch!
They did a great job on my sympathy arrangements for a close family friend. The woman on the phone was great with the call back and super responsive. The arrangement was wonderful and she gave me a great suggestions for my budget. Only complaint was that she got a name incorrect on the card, but the family friend knew it was from us. We had a good laugh regarding it! I would definitely use them for any of my floral needs!!

It was such a pleasure to deal with a real person over the telephone! I needed flowers for a very unexpected funeral, so looked for Lake Forest Florists on line and selected the Petal People Florist just because I liked the name!
I needed help and suggestions - and most of all a promise of delivery By 10:00 a.m. the next morning. All three needs surpassed my every requirement.
The flowers were at the church - an absolutely gorgeous spray/bouquet that received many compliments. I depended entirely for arrangement selection, color, etc., on Necia Bower's talent and could not have been more pleased. I could not have asked for more excellent customer service!
Without hesitation I would recommend The Petal People Florist for any and all of your floral needs!

you guys are AMAZING and excellent! You were so patient taking my order on the phone when I had laryngitis and had to whisper. My aunt called me only
a few hours later to say how happy she was receiving the flowers and texted me a picture of how beautiful they were. You exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend you to anyone!!!
Our wedding was in Mission Viejo on June 2nd, 2012. Necia did a fantastic job!! The flowers were very well chosen in freshness, colours and textures. Her arrangements were beautifully done and with variety in the style she gave to each arrangement, which to me, it requires not only skill but also art. She was professional and honest, and very punctual too. She did it all: bouquets for the bride and the bridesmaids, boutonnieres, corsages, centerpieces, special arrangements for special tables and even decorated the cake with fresh flowers.. Necia, thank you so much for making all look gorgeous!

Petal People provided the flowers for my wedding in June 2003. They were gorgeous and perfect (and reasonably priced!). My husband, who owns his own business, likes to give his $ to other locally owned small businesses and for years he has been ordering flowers through Petal People. Our anniversary was yesterday and he had an arrangement delivered to my office. Stunning, lush, original! A truly beautiful arrangement. He left it up to Necia and she included gorgeous lilies, my favorite. Just wonderful!

I ordered an arrangement for a friend who's grandfather passed away, and I was really impressed not only by the arrangement, but by the service as well. I hate ordering flowers online because they never come out as pictured. Since I'm not familiar with Irvine which is where the service was, I had no choice. This place had good reviews so I thought I'd give it a shot. I called and spoke to Necia and she was very helpful. I told her what my budget was and she emailed me a few pictures to give me an idea of what they would look like. The flowers turned out beautiful! She even sent me a picture of the final result. Definitely $100 well spent!

A friend recommended The Petal People Florist for our June 2, 2012 wedding, and we couldn't have been happier with the arrangements! We ordered bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids, boutonnieres, and loose flowers that we arranged in small vase centerpieces at the reception site. Everything was simply gorgeous, and the bouquets smelled divine! Necia really went above and beyond on the loose flowers, too--even though we "arranged" our simple centerpieces ourselves, we had a beautiful variety of flowers to work with.
Necia was extremely flexible, friendly, and easy to work with. My husband and I live in Wisconsin and planned our California wedding from a distance. I met with Necia once in person about 6 months before the wedding, and we communicated by email and phone after that. She was consistently quick to return emails or voicemails, even at the height of Mother's Day/graduation/wedding season. I have no complaints or regrets and will recommend The Petal People Florist without hesitation!

Petal People Florist is the shop that delivered my flowers for Valentine's Day. The boyfriend had called around to all the shops in the area to find out if they deliver to my office (as my workplace has rather tight security), and Petal People Florist was the only one that did.
In terms of customer service, I think the shop definitely went above and beyond to make sure the boyfriend was satisfied with the order. As anyone might guess, Valentine's Day can be rather hectic for a flower shop. And even though their Vday merchandising consisted of mostly rose arrangements, they made a special exception to let him place a custom order consisting of purple tulips and white calla lilies, despite the fact that it was their biggest sales day of the year. Plus, the flowers were timely delivered to the office right after lunch (some shops don't even make their deliveries on the day).
The flowers were gorgeous. The florist added a personal touch to the bouquet with a little felt heart around the vase. It did look a little tacky (in contrast to the modern design of the arrangement), but it is Valentine's Day after all.
Valentine's Day is one of those occasions that easily reveal whether a flower shop is worth your business. I've heard too many stories of Vdays gone disastrous with dead or never arrived flowers. And I think Petal People Florist showed itself as one committed to great quality and outstanding service. Good job!

Just got off the phone with Necia, ordering flowers for my sister-in-law's 50th birthday tomorrow. I'm in Chicago and did NOT want to go the FTD route. Our conversation was delightful and my vision was understood. Can't wait to get the thank you call. 🙂

Thank you so much!!! The flowers were absolutely gorgeous - and looked beautiful on the alter of the church yesterday. I was delighted and had many compliments on the choice of flowers. Especially
the large 'cabbage' roses - people wanted to touch them to see if they were really real - and they were!
Thank you again for you prompt and courteous help - and for the beautiful funeral arrangement.
The Petal People are WONDERFUL!! They made the bouquet for my wedding. I tried many florists looking for peonies in December and was only told that if I ever do find them they would be crazy expensive. The Petal People got the flowers for me and made a beautiful bouquet at a reasonable cost. The guests at the wedding loved them and couldn't stop talking about how pretty they were. The flowers were beautiful and are still lasting. I will use them any time I have an occasion in the future.

I have never used the Petal People Florist before and called them because they were close to my mom's office. They were very professional on the phone and extremely helpful answering all my questions. I knew before I hung up the phone that I was going to be impressed...and I certainly was! The flower arrangement was absolutely gorgeous, very unique, just beautiful! Great job and I will be using the Petal People Florist from now on!

The Petal People florist is absolutely wonderful! I found them on-line last April and decided to give them a try. To my great surprise what they delivered was hands down AMAZING. Needless to say, I use them every time I order flowers...which is quite often. Whenever flowers from The Petal People arrive at my office all the ladies comment on not only how beautiful the flowers themselves are, but how creative the arraignments is. From their customer service, to their floral arrangements, everything is awesome...they NEVER disappoint! The Petal People is a 5 star establishment, and I highly recommend them if you're looking for artistic beauty!

Very nice 🙂 She was helpful over the phone, and was happy to work with my color preferences and budget, and even delivered the arrangement that same day. The sympathy arrangement for the funeral was lovely. She even emailed me a picture of the beautiful arrangement when it was completed. Thank you!
