Our Story

Smiles Designed And DeliveredSM
Floral and Gift services

The doorbell rings. You hear the word, "Delivery." When you open the door, you're presented with a stunning vase filled with roses. You're surprised. You're smiling. And your whole day has changed.

Making people smile is no small accomplishment. It's an art and a passion that's been in our family for decades – it's what drove Jim McCann to open his first flower shop in 1976. It's not just in our business plan; it's actually how we see the world.

When we see a rose or a peony or a Peruvian lily, we don't just see a gorgeous flower—we see an opportunity to help someone express a feeling: appreciation, adoration, condolences, gratitude, love. It can be hard to express what's in your heart. But a special bouquet can do the job amazingly well.

It doesn't hurt that our exquisite arrangements are individually created by some of the world's top floral artists. Or that we pick the best flowers from the best growers from around the world -- the cream of the crop. Literally.

For us, delivering happiness is more than a nice thought – it's been our business practice for more than 30 years. And it's a job we're lucky to have. We know it. When someone gets our flowers we can tell they agree.  It's as plain as the smile on their face.

When you want to pay tribute to a person's life, sending sympathy flowers and gifts directly to those who are grieving is a moving gesture. A sympathy flower or gift delivery provides comfort to grieving loved ones, as well as allowing you a way to celebrate the lifetime of memories shared. Flowers, plants and other sympathy gifts provide a beautiful and intimate way to express your feelings. Also, the wide variety of options at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM allows you to find a tribute that is as unique as that person was during their lifetime. When choosing from our sympathy flowers and gifts, it is important to consider where they will be displayed – either at the funeral or in the home or office.

Floral Arrangements and Plants

We have a wide variety of floral arrangements available from white lilies, calla lilies and mixed bouquets to wreaths and more. Wreaths are particularly popular as the circle is a symbol of the continuance of life. For a more lasting tribute, you may want to consider a plant such as a gardenia. Both table and floor plants can be displayed at the funeral and then taken home by the family members so they can continue to enjoy the beauty of your gift.

Sympathy Gifts

When browsing through sympathy gifts to send to the home of the deceased, or to be displayed and shared in an office, popular choices are floral arrangements, plants and food gift baskets. Sympathy gift baskets are filled with comfort foods to help grieving friends and family at this difficult time. They are also an excellent choice for sharing at a memorial service. Sympathy floral arrangements from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM allow you to choose a beautiful way to express your feelings to the family. Plants allow the tribute to continue long after the funeral has been held and provide some beauty in the home of the recipient.
