UPDATE: I was quickly contacted by an Achara staff member who apologized for the flowers not being up to par and informed me that a new arrangement would be delivered that day. The new flowers exceeded my expectations and included a complimentary balloon as well. I appreciate the wonderful customer service and the effort to maintain a standard of excellence.
Original review: I was rather disappointed in the flowers that I ordered for a relative. They are pretty, but I was expecting to receive more based on the pictures featured on the website and the high price. Also, a lot of the flowers delivered had not even bloomed yet.
I was greeted as soon I entered the store (which is very cool with lots of interesting things to look at and purchase!). Eryn asked what the occasion was, what my friend liked, and what my budget was. They made up a florist’s choice with bright colors and it is fabulous!! Before she went back to the work area, Eryn said that if I needed anything while I waited to ring the bell. When is the last time you had that type of service?
When the designer brought the flowers out, we had a nice chat and she told me how to carry the flowers and get them home safely (And I totally dropped the box in the parking lot that will stabilize them a bit in the car, but because I was holding the vase itself, no damage done to the arrangement or vase!) A really lovely experience and the flowers are GORGEOUS! (The lighting in the photo doesn't do it justice at all, the purple is awesome, what looks yellow is really a powerful orange). It’s January and they are colorful and delightful AND they will last a long time, they are fresh flowers getting ready to hit their peak.
The service was great. Friendly greeting when I walked in. I explained what I wanted and they were very helpful and made me a beautiful bouquet. They definitely have my service.
Not only does Achara Florist design absolutely gorgeous arrangements, but their staff is super friendly and a pleasure to work with. We've always been extremely pleased with anything they create! Thank you for the STUNNING Mother's Day bouquet!
I've used this florist shop for many school dances, bouquets for my mom on Mothers Day, and flowers for school teachers. Absolutely wonderful service, and everything I have ordered is always stunning! Most of the times I'm not even sure what I'm looking for, but I'm able to give a budget and a brief idea and they help me with the upmost kindness!
These guys are the best example of southern kindness! There heart for others is amazing as well. Not to mention the arrangements are great! Would recommend to everyone!!!!
I’ve lived in Stafford, Virginia for 16 years and for 16 years, Achara’s been the only florist I’ve used. I’ve chosen their flowers and gift store items for parties, office and staff anniversaries, baby showers, birthdays, condolences, congratulations, and as my children are in their teens, dances and special awards. Not only are their flowers consistently lively and fresh, their eye for modern bouquet styles and design trends, keeps them current and offers a wide variety to choose from; ideal considering the varying occasions for which I’ve used them. If you plan on dropping by their delightful storefront to place or pick up a brilliant bouquet, be careful, their whimsical gift shop will keep you spell bound for longer than expected;). I’m crossing my fingers that I have a Mother’s Day Bouquet waiting for me this weekend.
I've ordered flowers from here a few times and never had any issues. Customer service was great and they answered all my questions. I would recommend and use them again in yhe future without hesitation.
I needed a special bouquet of flowers for a special little girl. I called in with budget, color and received the pretties bouquet. Turn around time was incredible. Excellent and professional service. Will continue to use and highly recommend this florist.
Best florist around! They always get it right and put together the most beautiful arrangements you can imagine. I was in a hurry this time and tried the online order process and I was completely blown away that the delivered flowers actually looked better that the online picture. My go to florist when I want to make a definite impression.
