The following was written about us at SAF Now, the leading florist organization....In a world where mobile commerce is dominating everything, a florist in Olive Branch, Miss., has figured out a relatively low-tech way to get customers autodialing him for orders.

We have been fortunate enough to not have a single complaint or refund in the 16 months we have been open but the following comment from a customer was due to Mother's Day, one of my part time drivers could not get one of the deliveries done so he left at the front door hoping she might see soon......When we found out we sent another, "Hi, I wanted to thank you both so very much for making and hand delivering my mom another arrangement. Her flowers had not been left with a neighbor and sat in the heat. They were delivered and left at her front door that she doesnít use. She loved the flowers. 😊 That meant so much to her because the ones delivered first didnít last at all in the heat on sat. She enjoyed meeting you. Said you were so very nice. I think we will both be using your florist in the near future. Thank you more than you know for your gesture. I visited yesterday and saw my mom and her flowers. They were so pretty. My mom can make her flowers last. 😊 Just wanted you to know how much it meant to both of us. Thank you again and God Bless. "

We have the pleasure of making people happy everyday and we wanted to share this with you so we have pulled just some of the comments we have received in the last week for you to hear starting with the one we got from this arrangement,"The Darlings are two of the most wonderful people! So easy to work with and transformed my event space to a gorgeous stage! Highly recommended", Also, "What a beautiful arrangement! I so appreciate being able to see it via text! Thank You!", and "My husband surprised me with a lovely bouquet of fresh blossoms from Darling Flowers one week ago, and I am still enjoying them! The bundle consists of liatris, pink snapdragons, fragrant stock, bright sunflowers, cheerful gerbera daisies, and seeded eucalyptus! As someone that once worked in the wholesale flower industry, I give Darling Flowers two thumbs up for freshness, variety, value, and customer service!", we could go on but why don't you just call us and see why these folks feel this way?

Valentine's Day 2014 was an enormous success and the number of compliments are still pouring in over phone, email and text. We sent many photos to clients of their arrangements as they were being delivered even though Vday is the one day of the year that we warn customers it may not happen. The following is a restaurant owner in the area that we provide flowers for, "You should have seen the smile on my wife's face when she saw her flowers !! Thank you both..........And the Restaurant looked awesome,many many compliments !!!"

Wayne and Jeanette Darling want to wish everyone a happy holiday season on behalf of Darling Flowers. We had some healthy criticism from the recipient of a floral arrangement this week that reminds us that we are in the business of creating what the customer wants and deems beautiful and our job is to create that for them. Regretfully, in this business of artistic design and freedom, sometimes those two things miss the mark entirely and in this case miscommunication was the culprit. The order originated out of town at a different florist and their instruction to us late afternoon for same day delivery was simply "mixed flowers" and of course this leaves a truckload of room to design anything really. The recipient did not like our creation and pointed out a popular Memphis florist and their design approach as an acceptable arrangement.....Jeanette and I gave this a lot of careful thought and given the circumstances there was no way we could have done anything different. While we also LOVE this florists design approach, it ties us to one particular style of design while we prefer to make anything that any client wants. Some like carnations, some like lilies, some are allergic to lilies and hate carnations. Our job as florists is to create what the customer wants and as with anything in the public, tastes vary, so we will continue to make our "best guess" in these situations but want to assure everyone that we started this business as a way to bring joy and happiness into peoples' lives and it is not our intent to bring misery to anyone. We love our customers and florists that entrust us with their orders and we will create anything you want with any flowers and/or colors or design styles that are given. Darling Flowers wants to be the People's Florist so please help us to be that for you.

Darling Flowers is proud to announce that we won Best Florist in the Commercial Appeal's Memphis Most 2013 campaign! We received more votes than any florist in the MidSouth including some of the large corporate multi-million dollar "florists". Their personal service, attention to detail, photo sending real time delivery verifications, answering their phones 24/7 are some of the reasons their clients voted them in as Best Florist. When asked why we started our own florist, we(Mr and Mrs Darling) replied, "Because we honestly care about the customer and we would want the same kind of service.". This attitude is why we won and will continue to provide more service and product than what our customers expect.

Darling Flowers had the honor to supply a gift for the silent auction at Germantown Performing Arts Center's annual Gala this year! We have supported GPAC both in business and in spirit for many years now so it was with great pride we made this arrangement for their auction fund raising efforts. Please support GPAC or the arts in your community however possible.

We deliver funeral work 7 days a week. We answer calls and emails at any hour also on any day. Darling Flowers also sends you a photo of what your actual item looks like and they do it from the driveway of the person you are sending flowers to so that you know what you got and when it got there. This is our standard practice and there is no charge for it. We deliver almost any order same day regardless of when placed(although please do try to get it in before 3pm!)
