What Our Customers Are Saying:

I purchased flowers at The Waters Edge Flowers for my 90-year-old Godmother and they were beautiful! My Godmother said it was the most beautiful arrangement she had ever gotten in her life (and trust me, she has had a full, amazing life). I will definitely be getting her flowers at The Waters Edge from now on. Highly recommend!

My mother passed away and my family visited The Waters Edge Flowers for an urn wreath. We had some rather unpleasant encounters at two other florists before coming here and were weary. We had no reason to be, as they took great care of us! I showed them a picture of what I wanted, they wrote everything down, and what was delivered to the church was perfect. It was exactly the colors and design I was hoping for, and was even better than I could have imagined. Thank you so much for treating us right!

This shop made and delivered a gorgeous arrangement from me to a friend. I just said to make it cheerful and colorful, and they made a perfect vase arrangement. I thought the price was more than fair with the number and type of flowers they used. My friend was delighted.

Called a week before Christmas to inquire about a special order after trying several other florists. The staff at Water's Edge went out of their way to get my flowers for the next day, called me when they came in and when I arrived they were perfect! They made the gift look beautiful with a ribbon and a lovely card. Beautiful and reasonably priced. I'll be shopping here again!

I needed last minute roses on Valentine's Day, I called last minute, and they fit me in during a busy rush - so as not to disappoint the wife! The roses were nice and fresh, and the staff efficient and friendly.

I went with this shop for an event I had and it was amazing! The arrangements were perfect and oh so beautiful. It was exactly as I had pictured and asked for. Highly recommended! Will use again and have already referred!

I worked with Waters Edge for my wedding and I was amazed at the feeling they were able to create of warmth, romance, and simplicity for my wedding, just through flowers. I went into the planning process not knowing much about flowers, and gave them a vague description of what I was looking for. They took my input and created something that was more beautiful than I could ever had imagined. The logistics of dropping the flowers off and setting them up the day of the wedding was flawless as well. I'd highly recommend The Water's Edge Flowers for any of your floral needs. ~ Bride

The flowers were absolutely beautiful! My bouquet was perfect and the centerpieces kept stealing my eye all night. Such fun, perfect weekend! ~ Bride

The rehearsal dinner was a magical evening and the flowers contributed a lot to that. They were lovely! We will remember the rehearsal dinner whenever we use your vases. Many thanks.

I am not from the area and wanted to send flowers to a friend. I'm quite picky and have no experience with this florist, and have received less than spectacular arrangements when ordering flowers before, so was slightly apprehensive. Grace was patient, incredibly helpful and responsive, and I wound up getting something that was absolutely perfect for a great price. Beautiful flowers, amazing customer service, and genuine enthusiasm.
