Your Flower Order
All There is to Know
How is Élan House different from other florists?
We pride ourselves on creating one-of-a-kind bespoke bouquets that are unique to each customer or recipient. You will never see a repeat of an order.
When available, we love using seasonal blooms from local flower farms. Our flowers are artful and are guaranteed to change the climate and mood of the room.
All bouquets are the designer's choice, but we will try our best to accommodate special requests for specific color palettes or local season flowers.
Can I pick my flowers?
Unfortunately, flowers cannot be picked - the flowers of the day are seasonal and are dependent on the flowers available at market that week and day.
What is the delivery process?
We deliver orders on Friday afternoon and Saturdays. WE TYPICALLY REQUIRE SIGNATURE UPON DELIVERY, but during COVID, things have changed. We will knock to notify the recipient of our arrival and if they don't open, we will first call them (if we don't get in touch with them, we will call you, the sender) and then leave the flowers or gift right at their front door, in the safest spot we can find (under roof, of course). If you already know they WON'T BE HOME and you would like us to leave the flowers or gift out front, please let us know so we can notify our drivers in advance. *Note: we can't guarantee flower freshness or safety if left outside for too long so if someone will be home, that would be the best case scenario!
CONDOS, APARTMENTS, OR GATED COMMUNITY DELIVERIES: Those delivering to condos or apartments - please make sure you included any pertinent gate codes or instructions. If there is a front desk doorman, we will leave the flowers or gifts with them and will require signature; however, please know that in our experience, some doormen will keep flowers overnight or for extended periods of time, especially during COVID times. We would suggest checking in with their front desk on the day of delivery.
HOSPITAL DELIVERIES: Currently, we DO NOT deliver to hospitals due to stringent COVID hospital policies. If you placed a hospital delivery order, you can email us to arrange a different delivery address or call us at the shop at 919-830-5381. Nevertheless, we will be contacting you to resolve this issue shortly.
If a bouquet is going to Raleigh we will include a $15 Delivery Fee.
Our delivery fee to Durham or Chapel Hill our Delivery is $25. Orders outside of our delivery radius are available for pickup only. This will be determined once the address is entered during checkout.
Your order is considered valid as long as you receive the automated confirmation email. If there are any additional questions or changes that need making, we will reach out to you directly, per the contact information submitted when you placed the order.
We try our best to provide delivery confirmation but due to volume that is not always possible.
At this time we do not offer same day orders.
Can I request a specific delivery time?
Unfortunately, at this time we cannot accept requested delivery times; however, when delivering to places of employment we can push them up to the top of the delivery queue, just make sure you contact us to let us.
Bouquet Pick Up
Orders are available for pickup on Friday afternoon. We are located in downtown Raleigh, NC. You will receive the exact pick up address once your order is confirmed.
Please arrive promptly at the time confirmed to pick up your flower arrangement. If you are more than ten minutes late to your appointment time, there will be a $5 late fee and we may have to reschedule your pick-up. If you know you are going to be late, please contact us ASAP by texting us at (919) 830-5381.
At this time, we do not offer same day order request.
What happens if the recipient or anyone is not available to receive the flowers personally?
If the recipient or anyone is not available to receive the flowers, we will contact you or the recipient, and if they don't respond, they will be left at their front door (where flowers are involved weather plays a big role in our leaving the florals). If the weather is not cool enough for the flowers, the flowers can be redelivered the next business day but the gift giver will be responsible for an additional delivery fee. Élan House will not be held responsible or liable for any stolen or damaged gifts after the delivery.
