Why Us

Why you'll love ordering with us

As a small, independent business, we’re always looking for ways to improve the customer experience and become a flower shop that people feel good about.

If we haven't convinced you yet, here are some reasons why you'll love ordering with us and how we're showing up as a small business for you and our community.

Unique floral designs, every time

Our florists are artists and designers at heart. We carefully craft each order and use colour, seasonality, and trade skills to create beautiful floral arrangements. Yes, this means that you won’t technically know what your arrangement may look like but we think that’s okay because...

We’ll send you a photo of your order

Each time you order with us, we’ll send you a photo of the arrangement as the delivery goes out! Please note that some flowers are fresh and in bud form and will open up as the receiver enjoys them throughout their time with them. So arrangements will become fuller as they age.

Local and fair-trade flowers

We source our flowers from local farms when possible but also from wholesalers that work with fair-trade flower farms in Ecuador, Holland, and more. We are members of the Local Flower Collective in Toronto, supporting small, independent flower farms right here in Ontario.

A personalized touch

From hand-written card messages, to in-house hand-delivery, we like to keep the human experience a part of the process.

Support creativity in youth

Starting this November 2020, we will be partnered with VIBE Arts Organization and are committing 3% of our online flower sales to providing children and youth in under-resourced communities with high quality arts education.

Supporting small, independent business

Wire services had a part to play in the past but now it’s much easier to find a local florist online. Many bigger flower companies charge you an additional fee to be the middleman between you and a local florist. Arrangements also tend to be more generic so that a wide range of florists are able to fill them. At May Flowers, we don’t use these wire services and design all our arrangements in house, often using locally sourced flowers as well!
