Thank you so much Donna for the spectacular job you did with the flowers for my daughter's wedding. I will never know how you took her verbal description of what she wanted, and made it come to life perfectly. All of the guests commented on how beautiful the flowers were. I will always be grateful.

The absolute most beautiful wedding flowers I've ever seen. Donna and her associates does an AMAZING job, great customer service, and very reasonable pricing. This will be the ONLY place I will purchase flowers from now on.
Dear Colonial Florist,
My mother-in-law, Mrs. Thomas E. Bass, III, took ill recently and passed away on Oct. 11, just days shy of her 89th birthday. The last flowers I sent her were in a beautiful Mother’s Day bouquet from your shop, with lots of purple flowers just like she loved, in a lovely vase with purple violets (pansies?) painted on it. She commented several times on how long that bouquet lasted and how beautiful the arrangement was. I want to thank you for the many years of pleasure you gave her, and how wonderful you were to work with (I am the woman who called every year and said, “please call her first because she will refuse delivery and take them instead at Thanksgiving!”). You were always great to work with and I actually felt like we became a “flower team” over the years. You made it easy for me to give her something that she enjoyed above almost all other gifts, and I appreciate that so much.

The gourmet basket you delivered to my home from NGP was absolutely perfect in every way. Your choice of items were amazing and the fruit was wonderful. It is so reassuring to know that the quality of your work is splendid and we can always be proud to send gifts from COLONIAL FLORIST.

I HAVE USED COLONIAL FLORIST FOR SO MANY YEARS & I HAVE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED. THE FLOWERS ARE ALWAYS FRESH & LAST A LONG TIME. THANKS DONNA & STAFF FOR ALL THE YEARS OF GREAT SERVICE.

Thank you for the beautiful arrangement you sent on our family's behalf to a recent viewing and funeral. While the passing of friends and family is always heartbreaking, the passing of a child is especially so and the arrangement you sent was so beautiful that we noticed many people pausing at the arrangement as they contemplated their loved one. We hope it helped all in such a time of sorrow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Donna and her staff are wonderful. The flowers are always beautiful and everyone is always so friendly and helpful. We are so lucky to have them here!
Dear Friends, Most recently with the passing of a dear friend's mother, I was able to call you to provide a very beautiful arrangement of lilies. You were able to discuss different varieties of lilies with me that would suit both my wishes and my pocketbook, which I really appreciated!! Your attention to the details of delivery on that date made it possible for me and the bereaved to concentrate solely on the beauty of the ceremony, while surrounded by the incredible beauty of your flowers! There were absolutely gorgeous, and exactly what I had hoped for! Thank you, Colonial Florist! You are first in my book!

After a busy day at work on Friday, I realized that I'd forgotten to order flowers for a memorial service on Sunday. I called your shop around 4:30 and the nicest lady helped me. I placed my order and she assured me that my order would be handled with care and would be at the church on Sunday. The arrangement was beautiful, and just what I wanted. I'll definitely be a repeat customer! Thank you so much.
Hi Donna & Anita, WOW!!!! How many different ways can I express that the flowers were perfect! You came through with flying colors (yellow, blue, green & white, to be specific!) – we are thrilled. Monika just kept commenting all day how much she loved the flowers. I’m so glad you decided to ‘wing it’ because we loved that you spread the flowers from the ceremony throughout the garden at the reception – splashes of colors in every corner - it looked terrific! Thanks for being so diligent dealing with all our last minute decisions. I was always confident that Colonial Florist would do a great job and you did not disappoint! The success of the wedding was due to our caring, hard working vendors – we are so glad we chose you as our florist!
Hi Donna & Anita,
"AMAZING florists!!!! They did the bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres for our wedding and we could NOT have been happier! Super pretty work, and sweet fun folk to work with!!!!!!! THANKS!"
We just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all of the hard work you put into our wedding. The flowers were absolutely beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. My mother was thrilled. Everything came together so well. My bouquet was stunning!! Again, thank you!! We would without a doubt recommend your business.
Best Wishes, Kris and Seeba Reams
You’re a creative master! The flowers you pulled together for my daughter’s wedding were spectacular!! The colors were breathtaking and the variety so fun! Her bouquet and the girl’s bouquets were perfect and the bins of loose flowers were shipped and arranged in countless vases for the tables. It looked amazing!! They were still bright and fresh the next day when we broke everything down, no one could bear to compost them, so we all took some home to enjoy for a few more days. Thank you for sharing your talents and for your service. You were a real pleasure to work with. Wishing you continued success in your business!!
Gratefully and with admiration, Deb Stamp
