After several "second chances", I wil NEVER use Buddies Flowers again. Inconsistent, unreliable, and indifferent are the words I would use to describe my experiences with them.
Buddies does it best! – I adore these ladies and have been working with them for years. They're so respectful of your budget and are truly imaginative in their arrangments. Every bouquet I've ordered from them has turned out beautifully; moreover, they're friendly, funny, and so easy to work with ;)
Great Experience – I had a wonderful experience working with Ana Kim (not sure if this is how you spell her name) at Buddies Flowers. I met with her less than a week before my wedding to pick out bouquets. I went into the shop and she patiently made many sample bouquets. I was pretty picky (typical bride) and made lots of adjustments and switches. She was lots of fun and made the experience enjoyable which to me is really important when working on wedding stuff. Weddings are such a huge process that I feel it is important to make every aspect fun. The bouquets turned out absolutely beautful. I would definately recommend this shop for your wedding. (Oh, and the price was great. She was very willing to work within our budget and we were able to get exactly what we wanted for our budgetted price.)
Beautiful flowers - FIVE locations! – I asked for Valentine's Day Floral deliveries to five different locations in Lake Oswego and Portland to be made on Valentine's Day (which was a Sunday in 2010). All recipients received their flowers in a timely fashion and I came off as "Mr. Thoughtful." (Kudos too for calling me earlier when one address was not showing up on the map.) I left the "choosing" up to them, and they did a wonderful job. It's now 10 days later and all are still in bloom! I later heard from others that "Buddies" was #1 in Lake Oswego. Happy dude here.
Superb floral designers and service – There's no need to go anywhere else--they have a great selection of beautiful flowers, including a variety of orchids and other tropicals, and their service is always spot on. Each of the designers has spent time with me to help me figure out what I want--even when it's one of those days when I don't have a clue. I'm a regular, so I've had a chance to see a lot of the arrangements they've created for others (in addition to what they've created for me)--and it's all been fabulous. Importantly to me, they knock themselves out for me whether I'm buying a funeral arrangement on short notice, a couple of flowers for my office, or something beautiful to help me feel better on a bad day. And talk about pet-friendly!
I can't imagine why I would go anywhere else – I get a small bouquet each week for my desk and usually pick up some roses from the bargain bucket at the same time for home. I also use Buddies for all my special occasion needs. The bouquets are always beautiful and show such creativity, and you won't find nicer people anywhere. And I love the bargain bucket, which really does offer fantastic bargains, since so far the roses have lasted a really long time.
Kind, Quality service. – My friend Erica was recently in her cousin Andrea's wedding. It was about a week until the big day when Andrea had to cancel with her original florist because they kept changing pricing and sadly were very rude to her. Erica called, remembering I had done the flowers for another friend's wedding, though I am usually a full-time wedding photographer. I accepted because I enjoy it, but I was stressed because we had so little time. We went to Buddy's, and Richard was absolutely amazing. He was so kind, and Andrea was on such a tight budget he gave us a discount on lilies and even put in a few extra flowers for me to work with! Everything was gorgeous, very fresh, and totally on time. I will recommend Buddies to ALL my clients.
Fantasic customer service – Buddies is the place for special occasions or everyday home decorations. They are knowledgable and friendly and have an impecable taste for beauty. Do yourself a favor...support this local shop and enhance the scenery around yourself with flowers and decor from Buddies. A+
A European-style florist for any whim. – In Short
A bucket shop set in the heart of Lake Oswego, this small space blooms with garden favorites from places like Holland, New Zealand and Australia. Colorful tulips, lilies-of-the-valley, peonies and a huge selection of roses and orchids can all be found here, to name just a few. For weddings, the staff here prides themselves on the all-rose bouquet, flower strings with freesia blossoms and delphinium, and arrangements with gardenias, lilacs and white ranuncullus.
Buddies Flowers – I have been doing Business with Buddies for years. They always surprise me with their beautiful and original ideas for all ocassions. I was recently out of the country and placed an order with them over the phone. They made it so easy! They were cheerful, friendly and efficient! My friend was thrilled with the flowers which were sent out the day I called! Thanks Buddies!
