Pete and Pandy were great. I had chosen the blue orchids for my wedding. Pete was very helpful on giving me ideas for our center pieces. He did my bouquet and toss, I had leis made for the wedding party. Everything was beautiful and perfect. My only complaint is I over ordered but that was my fault. He even delivered blooms to our cake decorated. I absolutely love the orchids.

at the start of my wedding planning this place changed owners which is the best thing that could of happened. The women that took over this place are nothing short from THE BEST. Elizabeth would talk me through whatever issues I was having and always wanted to make sure she did whatever she could to please me. All of my flowers were beyond pretty. All the guests loved them and begged to take some home. I had them make a handmade candy bouquet for my favors. They knocked it out of the park. Normally when you have a small child and you go into places you have to be on edge, nope not here they treated us like family. My son still asks to go back there to play with his "friend". These two are remarkable people and writing a review is the least I could do.

Pete was so amazing! The bouquets, the centerpieces, the ceremony arrangements, the cake flowers…it was all done so beautifully. It came together even better than I thought it would. My bridesmaids loved their bouquets – white hydrangeas with blue orchids, and my bouquet was simple, elegant, and BEAUTIFUL. I had been really nervous about the floral arrangements and Pete was so kind, so patient, and so helpful. I changed my mind about a thousand times back and forth about what was going on with the flowers, and Pete was always so helpful and had some wonderful suggestions to keep costs down and the flowers amazing. Our flowers were so beautiful, and I was so pleased with Pete (he really has the patience of a saint and is so good-natured). We had lots of little changes right up until the week before the wedding, and Pete worked with us through all of it. Thai-rific is a wonderful value, and a wonderful person to work with! Pete is so sweet and accommodating, I really can’t imagine how things would have gone if I had been working with anyone else.

Thairific's Pete was awesome to work with. Even though I am not creative and artistic with my visions of what I wanted, he took over and created BEAUTIFUL pieces that I was very happy with! You can put your trust in them. All I had to tell them was my color scheme. My flowers (orchids, roses, calla lilies, hydrangeas, birds of paradise) were all so gorgeous! My bamboo arch center piece and my bouquet was to DIE for - I wish I could have preserved them forever! They were very accommodating of my needs, budget and even the last minute venue changes due to the rain! Thanks again Pete!

Pete and Pam are wonderful!
They really care about what you want and your idea for the decoration of the wedding and your bouquet, they love flowers and is a passion for them.
I went to other places for quotes for my wedding flowers, and I felt like they didn't care about me or my wedding, and from the first moment I entered to Thai-rific I felt welcome.
They are always sending me emails to follow up with me.
I couldn't pick a better florist store for my special day, they made it more special.

Pete and Pady were amazing, I had beautiful fresh orchid arrangement in an amazing cascading bouquet and my bridal toss bouquet was beautiful and they even helped supply orchid blooms for my cake and center pieces and for my flower girls to toss and did a great job on my bridesmaid's bouquets too! They worked well within my budget and were very helpful and sweet and personable! I love them and will be using them for anytime I am looking for arrangements in the future as well!

I was recommended to Thai-Rific for my wedding. I would NOT recommend them every again to anyone who is celebrating their big day. At first I felt really comfortable with Pete and Pandy until I wanted an explanation of exactly what I was getting for my big day. That is when the ripping off began. I met with them several times and had in order what I wanted. Closer to the wedding (around 2.5 months before) we had to increase our arrangement order due to the fact we had more guests. Not only did it take Pete and Pandy three months to get us the original proposal, it was not until 2 weeks before did they give us the final proposal. After numerous phone calls and promised return calls I was getting no answers, we had to show up there in person. Another occasion that involved them supplying us with information on our order lasted 3 weeks with the excuse their computers were down. But what really set us off was they literally they told us on two occasions they were too busy for me, they had other customers!!! Are you kidding me? We spent over $3000 dollars on the flowers. My bouquet had dead orchids in it. It was nothing like what I was supposed to get. The boutonnieres looked like weeds. The table arrangements were not the same at the example Pete showed us at the shop. Simply we were to have lights in the arrangements, he told me after the wedding, and “sorry they cost extra". I had to explain to him, we ARRANGED to have the lights in them, regardless of the cost. He took it amongst himself to decide not to put them in!!! Also we asked for extra petals to decorate the cake, he recommended I buy petals from the local grocery store! We also were charged a $200.00 delivery fee, yet we had to go collect all the bowls and return them. I was really disappointed. It was my wedding day, orchids are my passion. I was heart broken to receive dead looking orchids. The worst part was when we returned the items we tried to be kind and express how disappointed we were, all he wanted to do was defend himself and argue that he was right. A simple apology would have been kind but he wanted to make the situation worse. Needless to say, I will not be going there, nor will I recommend it to anyone, especially since they are too busy for their customers!!

As the mother of the bride, I can not say enough wonderful things about Thai-rific Orchids. The flowers in my daughters bouquet were so beautiful. She loved it so much she took it to work to show everyone after the wedding. The bride also had an beach wedding and they did a magnificent job on the arch which then became the centerpiece inside. Everyone commented on how beautiful everything was.

I would highly recommend this vendor to anyone. You will love there designs and flowers. All the orchids are still wonderful and we can still enjoy them.

I was extremely dissapointed in this vendor! I had picked out my flowers in advance and had been planning with Thai-rific for over a year. They ended up delivering dead flowers that looked nothing like the ones I had choosen at my original appointment. They did not refund my money and were horribly rude to me when I asked them to bring different flowers to replace the dead ones. They even had the nerve to tell me to "Go to Publix" to get new ones! If I would have known how unprofessional and awful their busniess was, I would have gone elsewhere! Do NOT use Thai-rific Florist!

Sadly, I feel that I should comment on my experience with Pandy at Thai-rific Orchids. Two months before my only daughter's wedding, I went to the shop and introduced myself to Pandy, and spoke to her at length regarding our specific needs. I was told to come back three weeks before the event with my vases and seaglass collection, as well as the photos of the floral leis and bouquets that I desired.
When I returned, Pandy was continually distracted by customers calling on the phone, and walk-in customers. I felt that she did not give me her full attention, but hoped that she understood my specific instructions. I wrote my name, phone number, and e-mail address on the photos that I left with my vases and supplies. A week later, she called and gave me the price of $450 +. I told her that was fine, and that I needed to pick up the flowers by noon of the wedding day.
The morning of the wedding, I called to say that we would be coming by in an hour to pick up everything. She told me that since I had not answered the e-mail sent to me a week before, my flower order had been cancelled!! I was in a panic, and could not believe that they had not called me when I failed to answer the e-mail. They scrambled around, and made a beautiful bouquet for my daughter, but the requested vase arrangements had to be embellished with flowers from another shop at my additional cost, and the lei for the groom was the wrong color. The flowers were delivered at 4:30PM, two hours before the beach ceremony.
When water was added to the vases, one began spilling over the table--they had broken one of my vases, a matched set.
I went into the shop the next week to settle my bill. $100 was taken off the fee, which certainly could not cover my upset. I was given a microscopic print-out of the e-mail that was sent. After looking at it with a magnifying glass at home, I saw that they had sent it to the WRONG ADDRESS!! I was told by Pandy that they did not follow up the e-mail with a phone call because they are busy, and I WAS NOT THEIR ONLY CUSTOMER!!
I had hoped that every detail of my only child's wedding would be perfect and stress-free since I had planned everything so far out. The last minute scrambling was very upsetting, but could have been avoided with one quick phone call to a customer who had brought lovely vases and pictures, with all information written down. If I had been treated with kindness when I came in after the event, I might not feel so disgruntled. Be forewarned.

We went two or three weeks before the wedding to order flowers- which was really last minute. The lady I met with for the wedding flower consultation was very knowledgeable but also a bit pushy and had her own idea of what everything should be like instead of an open mind for what we wanted. I suggest going in with you own pictures of what you want and letting them know your budget before hand. We had to wait until 4 days before the wedding before we got a price quote. It ended up being way more than we wanted to spend so we went in and made changes. The owner was extremely accommodating with our budget and changes and the flowers ended up being really beautiful.

Could not have been more happy! My sister and I had the same bouquet, her's was just a bit smaller than mine and they were so gorgeous. They also did the flowers for my arch, corsages and boutonnieres. My pastry chef placed tomato and white orchids on my cake and it was the most beautiful cake you have ever seen. I wanted beautiful flowers on a VERY tight budget and that is exactly what I got. Pam was awesome and so easy to work with. I highly recommend Thai-rific Orchids for your wedding!

Now it's been a week & a half & my flowers are still beautiful in my fridge hehe!! Not to mention the pricing was extremely affordable!! One vendor tried to charge me $300 more than Thai-rific for the same arrangements!!! I HIGHLY recommend them for your wedding day!!

I first used Thia-rific Orchids for the flowers on my cake and for my flower girls basket. They have the best affordable orchids. I got a total of 4 boxes, lose orchids for under $100.The day of the wedding I went to pick up the orchids for the flower girl basket and decided to buy 7 large orchids for my bridesmaids hair. They wired them and gave me bobby pins. It turned out beautiful! The women there are super friendly and willing to help with any questions you have. I recommend them for any occasion.

They wired them and gave me bobby pins. It turned out beautiful! The women there are super friendly and willing to help with any questions you have. I recommend them for any occasion. Read less

We could not have been more satisfied with ThaiRific. Not only were our flowers beautiful, they lasted! We ordered actual orchid plants for our tables and they wrapped the pots in a pretty silver material. They looked great and impressive and were less money than a traditional centerpiece ($28 each) and I still have 3 of them in my house to admire 6 weeks later! The bouquets, boutineres, loose orchids were all stunning. They do a great job and we figured out all the details with them in about an hour. Awesome.

Pandy and Pete are great to work with. They are so sweet and were so accomodating when I placed a last minute order. The orchids were beautiful and so durable. Still fresh and colorful 2 weeks after the wedding. Can't beat the price. I was a DIY bride and order the orchids by the bunch and made my own centerpieces which received many compliments. We would definitely recommend them.

For over a year, I went to as many bridal shows as I could to meet the just right florist. At my very first show, I met Pam from Thai-Rific Orchid. She was extremely friendly and had a beautiful, but simply elegant display. Her genuine personality and creativity is what drew me to take another look at them when I was making my final vendor decisions. Thai-rific was the only florist I wanted to work with and I feel so lucky that they were available.

My favorite memory of my flowers occurred when Pam brought in my bridal bouquet filled with cymbidium and dendrobium flowers. They had created the most beautiful bouquet for me! For my bridesmaids, they did a beautiful arrangement of dendrobium orchids and white calla lilies. Came out stunning!!!

For my centerpieces, Pam created a jaw-dropping effect with white dendrobium orchids submerged in water. With the amber cande-light, they were simply stunning!!!

In all, Thai-Rific was an amazing family to work with and I couldn't be happier that they were a part of our day!

Had such a great experience with Thai-Rific. Pam did such a great job listening to everything I had in mind. Everything from single orchids for my bridesmaids and I's hair to an arch beautifully decorated for the ceremony. Even almost a week after the wedding the flower that I kept in water STILL look like they did on our wedding day. Perfect!

My flowers were absolutely beautiful. Anytime you have orchids people are going to drop their jaw. The pricing was very reasonable what I would have paid for something else. The people are great and don't pressure you to buy a whole lot of things that you don't need. They give you ideas and let you choose if you want them to do the work or do it yourself. They are wonderful people and have a great business. My flowers are still looking new and it's been over 2 weeks since we got them. At least we get to enjoy them longer than one day. The bouquets and everything was perfect.

I always knew I wanted orchids at my wedding, but once I started planning, I realized how expensive they are!! I was telling this to my wedding photographer and she recommended Thai-rific because they are so affordable and professional. I am sooo glad I made the choice to have them do my flowers! I met with Pam several times and bugged her via email and phone and she was always so friendly and willing to help me. Thai-rific provided my bouquet of white orchids, four bridesmaid bouquets of green and sprayed hot pink orchids, hair flowers for bridesmaids and flower girl, petals for the flower girl and aisle, ceremony decor, palms to line the aisle, all my centerpieces, boutinnierres, corsages, and cake flowers... and I managed to stay within my budget! They are amazing and I would recommend them to anyone!!

This is a small family owned company, and you really should go in person to the shop, it is adorable, they have a green house and potted plants as well. They directly import all their flowers from Thailand, so you get them at a very reasonable price, not to mention that Pete will really, really work with you to get you exactly what you want and can afford, he gave us such a good price on our bouquets and they were gorgeous!!! The day of the wedding, they had even thrown in a couple extra of the more expensive Asiatic lilies in my bouquet than we paid for... they are all so sweet and really just want you to be happy! They have a huge variety of beautiful orchids plus many other unique flowers that you may not find elsewhere. We did not do formal centerpieces however the examples of what they had done were absolutely beautiful. We got single orchid stems and greens to put in our own vases, and went in person to meet with Pandy to decide what exactly we wanted and she insisted we take some samples home to play around with. Pamela is who we dealt with for billing and changes to the contract etc. which was never a problem... She usually emails or calls back that very same day, otherwise the next, and was also very sweet and professional. They also provided the orchid blooms for the cake and petals for the flower girls, boutinairres, and everything was absolutely beautiful and colorful! Absolutely nothing bad to say about Thairific Orchids!
