FR Review:
One would be hard-pressed to find a florist with a more devoted, more enthusiastic client base than Michael George. The customers we spoke with--whether in fashion, finance or ordering for their own accounts--love Michael George because they "never have to worry" about the quality and beauty of what they will receive, and because the staff excels in adding a "personal touch" wherever possible. So, if you are in the market for a florist that goes "above and beyond" in getting to know you as both a customer and an individual, then look no further.

Michael George has been in operation since 1980 and is a mainstay of the New York City floral scene. Michael George arrangements are known for their graphic minimalism, often incorporating just one type of flower or color. The end result, which heightens focus "on the flower," has made fans of Martha Stewart, Vera Wang, and Calvin Klein, and has also established a strong residential and corporate following. The company's popular weekly menu, made available to its client base, consists of between six and nine arrangements that change in accordance with the season and what's "in."

Prices are on the high end, but are considered "fair" for Manhattan and given the high quality of work delivered. The minimum order amount is $100 and a typical "Thank You" arrangement costs around $225. Centerpieces start at $150. Same day delivery is available for both arrangements and centerpieces, but it's best to place your order by 11AM for guaranteed same-day delivery.

While even the best of florists can sometimes get it wrong, Michael George customers say that he will always make it right: "I once mentioned that the arrangement I ordered wasn't as bright as I thought it would be and they promptly sent me over a brighter one, telling me to keep the first arrangement as well."

Representative Client Comments:
"Best in class." "I can rely on them." "They are always on time and flexible when it comes to last-minute changes." "Michael George is great and their staff is an absolute pleasure to work with." "Their pricing is fair for Manhattan." "We just love them!"

Project Description & Comments:
I've used Michael George for arrangements and dinner parties for several years now. I love their clean design and how they incorporate unusual flowers. They have a good sense of the spaces I need flowers for and understand what the occasion calls for. They are expensive, but completely reliable.
