We'll leave the cookie cutting to Bakeries!

Exclusive Design by Flowers Washougal

Any florist can have a "picture book" website with a catalog of photos professionally made by a wire services such as as FTD or Teleflora. These companies spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on photography to create the "perfect photo."

A Bouquet by FTD

However you must know the designs are also made one-sided to trick the customer into thinking there are more flowers in the arrangement. When these flower bouquets are actually made by a floral designer, they need to be seen from all sides, which means the front side that you view in photo online, is not as full looking as the finished actual product made by the florist.

At Flowers Washougal, all of our floral designs are exclusively ours. How do you know what kind of work a florist is capable of doing if they don't show their own photos? You don't, until you see the product in person. There are a lot of florists websites on the internet who may show you the prettiest pictures in the world , yet they cannot create the bouquets that they have available online.

You may be asking yourself if we offer out of town delivery. Yes, of course we do, however not being an affiliate of a wire service allows us complete control of our orders heading out of town. We personally call every order to the receiving florist, and screen to make certain they will fulfill our customer's needs, wants and desires.

We will leave the "cookie cutters" to do their thing. However, we feel providing unique designs that are exclusively Flowers Washougal, sets us apart. If you would like to order one of our exclusive designs, contact us today and check out our website, You won’t be disappointed.
