I need to know some florists in LA that send flowers same day delivery.?

phone numbers would help thanks a bunch

I need to know some florists in LA that send flowers same day delivery.?

If you order before 12 noon, they'll have your order in on the same day. I live in the L.A area too and I've used conroys for last minute relationship saves (you know what I mean ;-) lol... It's a little on the expensive side but they're really reliable.

Hurry! you only got like 42 minutes before noon!

Actually... I just realized, noon cutoff is for saturday deliveries... Since today is Tuesday, you actually have till 2 o' clock. But you should still hurry.

I just wrote up a memo and I am posting it in all employee's email prohibiting V-Day gift deliveries.?

I am sick of these florists coming into this office on V-Day and Sweetest Day with crap for my employees. I have the memo already written and it will also be posted. Any employee getting these type of deliveries will get a verbal warning on the first offense and will be terminated on the second. Productivity has sucked in here today. Do any of you blame me for this? Give me your honest views.

I just wrote up a memo and I am posting it in all employee's email prohibiting V-Day gift deliveries.?
You're disciplining your employees for receiving gifts they have no control over. Most people do not send florists to themselves, their loved ones do and by now it is far too late to be saying anything of it. If you didn't want people entering the building you should have sent the memo out at least a week ago so they could tell their SOs NOT to send them anything because they're going to get in trouble for it. Doing anything right now will only upset your employees and anyone who possibly receives anything. It's ONE day. Get over it. Holidays are normally unproductive because people have their minds elsewhere. What you SHOULD send a memo over is reminding everyone that even though today is Valentine's Day, you would like to see productivity stay as good as always and just gently remind them to try to stay on task as much as possible.
Reply:If people want to send a person flowers, the receiver has no control over it. Employees need little perks in their job in order to feel appreciated. One would be an easy going boss who doesn't try to stop fun things from happening, such as not allowing flowers etc. to be delivered.

Are you the Grinch who stole Valentine's Day? Lol. Even though people may be chatting and checking out other people's gifts today, tomorrow will be back to normal. Let them enjoy a little less productivity for one day. Besides, you're on Yahoo answers while at work (just like me), and that's not very productive.

I hope you didn't send that memo.
Reply:Well if you aren't the owner start filling out your resume. If you ar get ready to close your doors .
Reply:You cant punish your employees because someone else loves them and wants to express it. You dont want to be the boss thats an *** and everyone hates. It's only for 2 days out of the year and dont be such a grouch about it.

If it really is a big problem, then maybe try to come up with a plan that isnt so harsh, but include your employees in the policy making that way you dont look like an ***!
Reply:Well, it's kind of hard when you may have no control over who sends you something. Sounds like a lost cause to me. Your memo's going to be trampled on.
Reply:You will get just what you're asking for if you do that. You may be the boss, but you are clearly not a leader. Squash their spirit of good will today and they will sabatoge you in ways you never dreamed of. So what if one day is low, make it up and suck it up or you will be the sorry one. Honestly, what's the big deal from one who was a boss.
Reply:Do you think productivity will get any better by being such a dictator? You must be a very miserable person. Let people enjoy themselves, it's just one day.
Reply:That's horrible! The employee is not soliciting the delivery, it is something special done FOR them by someone else. If your significant other wants to surprise you by sending you a cookie bouquet or something, why should you be punished for that.

It seems a little like sour grapes to me. Don't penalize others for your lonliness. This is a day that comes once a year, and makes people feel loved and special, don't take that away from others. You have 364 other days to make them miserable.
Reply:You know what, our lives are so busy with work, running here and there etc. that I think it's good for a persons morale. You should notice a change in attitudes for the better. How dare you try to ban something this special to a person. Ya know most people don't have a lot to look forward to. It's work, go home work some more, go to bed, get up go to work, Come on think about it.
Reply:seriously ur pathetic! just because u dont have a gf or anyone to send u something at the moment... u dont have to be so harsh.... im mean its just one day for god sake...

if it annoys u so much.. i suggest take the day off work ;)

p.s probably ur productivity has sucked too.. if u have time to waste on yahoo answers, writing the memo, emailing it, complain and being all lousy.people with lousy moods work bad :D
Reply:you must be very unhappy and jealous because no one loves you.
Reply:So, how's your productivity on Christmas day? How about on July 4th? There are only a few holidays during the year that interfere with working. My suggestion is you tear up your memo, and let your employees enjoy feeling a little bit special on Valentine's day. Happy employees are more productive. If you run the place like a Victorian-era sweatshop, I can assure you that productivity will suffer.
Reply:if u were my boss and you give me a warning over something out of our control i would tell ya to put your job where the sun dont shine !!!!!!!!!!
Reply:you are just joking...

If you are not, you are just a little, miserable, insignificant human being.

Don't waste any more time here and use it on trying to become a happier person. I don't think you are contributing to productivity writing on yahoo answers, are you?

Is that even legal???

I still think you are joking...

Why do people continue to get me flowers for my birthday when I keep telling them I hate getting flowers?


Flowers are a nice gesture but flowers are VERY EXPENSIVE when ordered from a florist %26amp; delivered… They don’t last long… I have more vases then I know what to do with%26amp; end up giving them to GoodWill to join their collection of cheap “free” vases that come with flowers…

I find it depressing how the flowers are meant as a good thing but then they, like everything else, begins to decay, %26amp; end up rotten %26amp; in the trash… Last year on my b-day I got THREE DELIVERIES OF FLOWERS! I had no where to put them all %26amp; had to give them away to neighbors!

This year I only got 1 (thank god) but it doesn’t even have anything I can dry to use in an arrangement. They are all just ‘throw-out’ flowers. VERY EXPENSIVE ‘throw-out’ flowers

I would MUCH rather have some kind of plant that I can care for %26amp; keep for more then a week!

Why do people continue to get me flowers for my birthday when I keep telling them I hate getting flowers?
I am definitely laughing right now! Not at you, but with you. Every year I get clothes from people, and every year nothing fits. I tell them please don't buy me clothes, nothing EVER fits. But what do you think happens-you got it-CLOTHES! The only difference between me and you is my cat doesn't eat my clothes.
Reply:People do that too me too...I hate it. What the hell can I do with flowers. How about a grocery certificate so I can gorge my depressing self in ice cream. People are just too lazy to be personal anymore.
Reply:You've gone really into this %26amp; perhaps they can't be bothered to be so deep!
Reply:I feel the same way. Flowers are expensive and they die quickly. I feel they're a waste of money. I'd rather have a plant or a gift certificate.
Reply:Are you telling them collectively, as a group, or individually? As a group, they may not be listening. Tell each one, and tell them the options. Cash or gift certificates. If they cooperate, send them a thank you note. If they send flowers anyway, give them away, and let them know you did. Tell them you'd rather have NOTHING than flowers, thank you very much.
Reply:Why? Because they want someone to send THEM flowers! They don't listen to you either. Make a "wish list/gift list" and email to everyone. Have things on it that are in many different price ranges. Tell everyone that you just found out your are allergic to flowers and can't have any in your house so you wanted to help everyone with gift ideas! Okay, I know that is a big fib, but you need to take drastic steps! Make sure you have lots of ideas on the list and put in there that, when in doubt, you LOVE gift cards to your fav stores. Hopefully, you will get some different gifts next year!
Reply:no theyre not listening, but you cant tell people what to give you unless they ASK, try to enjoy the flowers.
Reply:to bug you . just start saying you hate getting $$$ and there ya go your bank account will starrt to grow as your gifts get smaller

Anyone Use ProFlowers?

I did and it was a joke! Flowers were supposed to be delivered on Thursday and didn't arrive till Monday. To top it off, they were completely dead. I called on Friday and got my money back. They tried to tell me I could only have a partial credit. I told them that the flowers would be 100% dead when they would arrive, if they ever would arrive. So they gave me all my money back.

They shipped using FedEx and were scheduled for Thursday. When they didn't arrive, I called on Friday morning. I was told that the truck had too many deliveries and they couldn't get to mine, but since they were left over from the previous day they would be the first to be delivered. Wrong! they didn't come till Monday and of course they were completely dead.

I'll never use ProFlowers again. I'll call a local florist or

Yahoo; Are you going to delete this post too?

Anyone Use ProFlowers?
I did and I never will again. Mine were frozen and went bad.
Reply:sorry nto sure
Reply:I dont think it was pro flowers fault though- I have had delays with fedex. They should not accept shipment if they cannot deliver as promised. I have had good flowers delivered with pro flowers although the person who orders always does it early so there is no rush-so I guess that is the secret?
Reply:I've never used them, but definitely won't now!! I'm sorry that you had such a terrible experience, but you're lucky they gave you your money back. I hope it didn't ruin your day!!
Reply:I bought from them for Mother's Day and got 2 dozen roses for my mom. She got them on Friday (I had chosen them to be delivered either Thursday or Friday) and they arrived beautifully. My mom said they died by Sunday or Monday. She called ProFlowers and they said that they would replace them and they did - with flowers that actually lived.

Part of the problem for you was FedEx. They are absolutely horrible becuse we've used them for mailing stuff and they always are delayed - claiming it is out of their control. One time made sense - it was when that tropical storm was in Florida, but this most recent time makes no sense. FedEx is who you should be more upset with.
Reply:We had a awkward experience but I think it had more to do with the delivery guy. It was for Mother's Day and he left them at the wrong house and left them on the uncovered porch (of the wrong house) in pouring rain. We called them and they said the flowers had been delivered and wouldn't refund since they had been signed for. A few days later the person returned home from vacation, recognized the name, and brought them to our mom. They were african violets so totally dead. We called them again and they were really good about it and sent her a brand new batch the next day and refunded part of our money.
Reply:I think local flowers are better. I have worked in a nursing home, and some people long distance sent their mother pro flowers, and some called the florists here. The florists here had prettier flowers and arrangements.
Reply:I agree, worst flower company ever. Roses looked horrible upon arrival and they died in two days. I get better flowers for cheaper from the local grocery store!!!

B'day cake and flower delivery in Rome? 30 gift ideas for husband's 30th b'day pls.?

My husband and I are going to be in Rome for his 30th b'day. We stay in London and I want to get flowers and cake delivered to the hotel. I can't find anything on the net. Can you help me in finding a website or give a good bakery's name and suggest a florist for flowerdelivery. Thanks!

I also want to give him 30 gifts for his 30th and need lots of ideas. Any help?!!

CAn u also suggest a good romantic restaurant for dinner?

B'day cake and flower delivery in Rome? 30 gift ideas for husband's 30th b'day pls.?
phone the hotel you are stayin in and have them arrange the flowers and cake. cant help you on the 30 gifts as i dont know what your husband is into sorry
Reply:30 gifts could be scary even for someone who cares about his birthday

I think, however, it would be pleasant to receive 29 semi-precious stones, each with a special reason/meaning and one nice big gift..... Report It

Reply:Interflora deliver world wide so you can pre-order the flowers before going to Rome. I am sure if you speak to the Hotel Manager or similar they can certainly arrange for a birthday cake for you either from their own supplier or from a local bakery.

As for other gift ideas then maybe some items from the year of his birth like a football programme, coins, newspaper, special events items/memorabilia. Type his birth year into Ebay and see what comes up. No need to buy from there but it may give you some more ideas.

Hope you both have a wonderful time :-)

The hotel staff can help you get your cake and flowers delivered there; you only need to ask them.
Reply:Hello Niti,

What a lovely idea!

You can make one of the presents a treasure hunt. Hide all the presents with a clue as to where to find the next present! You can prepare this before you go as most hotels now show layouts for the room, so you can plan where to hide stuff and make appropriate clues.

Gift ideas (I've thought of "light" things that will not weigh much in your case)

* Write a small children's book with drawing /paintings /photoes about something that means a lot to both of you.

* Something "intimate" but fun (I'm talking sex toys or clothes!)

* get a photo engraved on a dog tag

* A voucher that says you will do a chore that he hates for 1 week (eg I promise the bearer that I will do all washing-up for 1 week)

* Tickets to an event he would enjoy

* Massage oil (!!) You can make your own with a few drops of essential oil from any health shop or Boots and italian olive oil - put it all into a nice bottle.

* Men love gadgets! Here are some ideas (I want the bath thing in the "under £15" !)

Romantic restaurants? I don't know where you are staying, but one of these should be close

I hope this has helped. Have a great time!!
Reply:Definitely contact Wishcraft - they will sort all of that out for you, the restaurant too - it will save you so much hassle! Sounds very nice by the way!
