Garden of Eva is the Best!.
I have been a customer of Garden of Eva for over 15 years. I have ordered flowers for almost any occasion from professional to personal, I must say that Eva always delivers fresh, beautiful flowers and never disappoints. I have received flowers over the years from other florist that have not met the standards that Eva has.
When my mother passed away I called her and gave her an idea of what I was looking for and she said she would wait for me to arrive and walk me through the process. My mother had the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen at a funeral and the cost was competitive. I believe she treats all her customers with the same personal care.
I have recommended Eva to many people over the years and have only received positive feedback on her flowers and her service.
Just the other day I ordered flowers to be sent to a friend in a traditional care facility and told her the address I was given. She told me she thought the facility was in a different building but I need not worry as she would make sure the address was correct for delivery.
If I send flowers out of town I call Eva, tell her what I want and she makes all the arrangements.
To me, that is personal service you can't buy. Eva will always be my go to person for beautiful flowers
Valentine's Day Letdown. I received the most pathetic "arrangement" I have ever seen - on Valentine's Day, no less. I know floral shops are busy today, but wow, the rose stems are cut down to 4" and there is one little sprig of greenery in the "bouquet." I am actually embarrassed for me and my husband (we're newlyweds, to add salt to the wound) to have these on my desk. I wish I could post a picture. The card from Garden of Eva says "It was a pleasure to give your order our personal attention." Really? This makes me want to cry. Thanks for ruining my Valentine's Day, Garden of Eva.
Dear StPaulGirl, We strive to fill every order we receive to the specifications of the order recipe. & your order was filled to recipe. If you called us we would have replaced it with something more to your taste. Unfortunately, when someone orders an item thru the order gatherers on the internet, we MUST follow their rules & recipies. We are sorry we could not speak with you personally to correct this. I wish I had seen your review sooner, but I would still like to rectify this for you. Eva
Best Florist for Lowest Price. I highly recommend Eva as a wedding florist. My flowers were GORGEOUS, and she was far less expensive than anyone else I consulted with. In fact, her price was so much lower than others that I worried the quality of her flowers might be lower (another florist suggested to me that this must be the case given her prices) - but believe me, this was not an issue. She has very high quality flowers delivered for weddings. They were fresh and nicely arranged: I absolutely loved them. I told Eva what flowers I wanted, even giving her pictures of what I wanted in some cases, and she delivered exactly what I wanted at a low price. She also allowed me to make several changes along the way, and even converted a pin-on corsage into a wrist corsage on the spot at our wedding when someone changed their preference. Go to Eva for a great value and beautiful flowers.
Minnesota's Best Florist - By FAR.
I have to say that my experience with the Garden of Eva was TREMENDOUS, and if you are ever needing a florist for ANY occasion, you would be crazy to go to anyone else! I was a walk-in, just looking to order some flowers for a friend, and it was Eva herself that waited on me. Not only did she help me hand tailor my order, but we got to talking about my upcoming wedding. She took the time to discuss floral options to consider, as the day is still very far away. She simultaneously helped several other customers, while continuing to check back with me as I perused her pictures from previous weddings. She is a GENIUS when it comes to arrangements, and through talking with her, she helped me make a decision for a bouquet! She offered me all this knowledge and support without expecting my business!! Her pricing for a complete wedding was WORLDS less then quotes I got from other florists for just the bridal party alone...plus, she pulled together an impromptu bouquet on the spot as an example for how it would look, and it was perfect!! So naturally, I booked her services for the wedding right then and there.
My special day will be even more special, as I no longer need to worry about my flowers! Garden of Eva is one of those rare stores left where you get personal help, professional expertise, affordable quality, and friendly service. What a find! I won't be doing any future floral shopping anywhere else!!
Editorial Review. Family owned and operated floral arrangement and gift shop that delivers in St Paul and its surrounding suburbs.
STRESS FREE SERVICE!!!!!. I recently helped my sister plan her wedding. I was stunned when I read the bad review posted by aschmidt, as the service we recieved was outstanding. When we called for an appointment, we were asked when it would be most convenient for us to come in. The person on the other end of the line was friendly, and curteous. My sister, my mother and myself all went to the consultation Eva met with us herself. My biggest complaint is we had to wait about 5 minutes while she finished up with another customer before she could sit down with us. Eva had excellent ideas and suggestions, and somehow managed to bring all three of us together, as my family members all had different ideas. To help us stay within our budget we decided to use many of our ceremony decorations at the reception also, suggested by Eva, such as flowered garlands, and floral pew decorations that also served as table decorations. We were able to rent mirrors and votives as well. For a small fee we utilized Eva,s "Stress Free Service", her staff delivered the flowers to the church, set everything up beautifully, stayed and pinned on the corsages and boutonierres, waited until the ceremony was over, quickly and efficiently took down the decorations , transported them to the reception, and they were set up before the guests started arriving. Talk about SMOOTH!!!!! The flowers were superb, and the service was spectacular. I would highly recommend The Garden of Eva for any occasion. They made our day worry free.
open letter to lindsk.
First I would like to apologize to you for the experience you had on January 12, 2007. I do not have
a male staff member, so I am guessing you must have talked to someone from the answering service
I hired. I hired this service for the hours when we are closed as a customer convenience.
They assured me they would only have florist trained customer service people answering our phones.
Obviously, this was not the case. I am so sorry you had this experience, but I would like to thank you for taking the time to bring it to my attention so I can address this unprofessional experience. Again, my sincere apoloigies to you. Eva
phone orders. I called to order flowers for a friend whose grandmother passed away and the person who answered the phone, while extremely polite, clearly didn't have a clue--he didn't even give the name of the shop when he answered the phone, just said "flower shop." He asked me what I wanted and when I told him I wanted a small arrangement with a couple of white roses, he told me I could get some daisies with herbs. When I told him that was not what I was looking for, he couldn't think of anything else. He said he wasn't sure what I wanted--even though I'd told him EXACTLY what I wanted. I read the other reviews and I was expecting A LOT better service. Unfortunately, I don't live close enough to just go into the shop and pick something out--I picked it because of the reviews and the proximity to my friend's home. I didn't give them my business, but they gave me a headache! Think twice before calling this store!!
Exceeds your expectations. I've been to garden of eva for every birthday, anniversary and major holiday this year. I am always welcomed with warm smiles and courteous customer service staff. I know Eva is a busy woman, but she helps me with my specific requests each visit. If this rating were for woman of the year, she would be at the top. Thank you again Eva for making each gift special.
The Only Florist I Would Consider!.
I have been using this florist exclusively for the last 16 years and there is not other that I would consider! Eva's customer service is outstanding! She employs responsible and reliable staff who are friendly and very helpful. My orders have ranged from personal to business and I have always been very pleased! In fact, Eva's creations have always exceeded my expectations. She and her team have a good eye for creative arrangements and innovative ideas for solving unusual occassions.
I am very thankful to Eva and her team for all the good service I have received over the years!
