I'm interested in locating an online florist who'd put together a
non-typical bouquet and ships internationally.

Thank you and good luck. :-)

Hello Tinkywinky,

  Could you elaborate a bit on what a "non-typical" bouquet is to you?
Rare flowers? Balloons and flowers?

  Also, some companies may have delivery restrictions. Can you tell me
what part of the world you are interested in sending this bouquet?
This will ensure I can locate a florest that goes to your desired

  Regards, Crabcakes

Hi Crabcakes,

Non-typical: Rare flower + Arrangement is well thoughtout to look
great and unique and can survive shipping. I'm not looking for the
usually bumch of flowers that are are wrapped up side by side in a
simple arrangement.. but I might be wrong.. I'm looking for something

Should be shippable to GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries.

Hello Mao,

   As I researched, a common theme was noted. Most, perhaps all, of
the international florists, and US based florists, seemed to utilize
the same local florists. That would seem to make sense, as shipping
flowers from the US to the UAE would be expensive and time consuming.
(There may even be import laws restricting bringing in fresh cut
flowers or live plants.)

  I began to research European and UK florists and. It certainly
appears that all florists will farm out the order to a local florist
from the country for which the delivery is intended.

  As far as a lavish bouquet, after an exhaustive search, it appears
your best bet is to design your own. Most of these sites state they
offer the ability to design your own, and I have a feeling any site
will be happy to do so! (More profit for them!) I?m also willing to
stick my neck out and say local florists will arrange a lovely bouquet
of local flowers that will be sure to please the recipient.  Designing
your own bouquet will allow you to select an array of your recipient?s
favorite colors (if available locally)

   I have found numerous international florists, and included several
located in the GCC countries themselves further down in my answer.
However, this first selection, Emirates Flowers is the one I feel you
will select! You can design your own arrangement, include chocolates
or a cake, and have it delivered to any GCC country!

Apparently there is no delivery to Oman, Qatar, or Saudi Arabia, but
it would not hurt to inquire.

Norton?s Flowers

Norton?s Flowers offers ?Oh Wow? bouquets.
?Can you really put a price on the breathless excitement of someone
you adore? Sometimes you just have to forget the limits and go all the
way! Experience the ?no limits? creativity and service our customers
find at Norton?s Flowers & Gifts and order with confidence knowing we
absolutely guarantee the freshness, design and timely delivery of
every floral, plant and gift purchase. When Norton?s says ?We Deliver
the WOW!?,  you can count on it.?

Norton?s Flowers also offers good advice:
?For the convenience of our customers, Norton?s maintains a network of
preferred Teleflora and FTD florists, in whom we have the confidence
they will care for your order as professionally as we do locally.
While it is true that you can call another florist directly, we think
it is an advantage for you to let Norton?s do all the work and accept
all the responsibility. Your process for selecting a florist would be
quite random and arbitrary, while we maintain a selective database of
reputable florists with whom we have a relationship or are familiar
with their standards. Additionally, Norton?s guarantees the order and
becomes your advocate if you were to be disappointed in any way.
Orders for delivery out of town should be placed as early as possible,
but no later than 1:00 pm in the time zone where we?ll be sending the
delivery. Out-of-town business deliveries should be placed 24 hours in
advance whenever possible. Specific time deliveries are extremely
difficult to promise when the order is going outside our local
delivery area, but we will do our best to convince the filling florist
to deliver as requested.

International deliveries cannot be ordered on the website. There are
too many variables affected by the country of destination. Delivery
and service fees on international orders typically total $19.95.
Please call our main store (800-682-8667) for more information or to
place your order.?

?We will be happy to accept your international orders if you call our
shop directly (1-800-682-8667). We are unable to accept international
orders over the Internet.?

Using the internet, you can order locally, and not just in the Americas or Europe.

?Customization options have certain limitations. You need to choose a
product that is closest to what you like and then ask for a
substitution of flowers to match the product you like. This is the
best we can do for customization so far. Request this in the special
instructions box that appears on page 2 of the checkout process.?
