Getting flowers from Narcissus is simply a "magical" experience!

Ken and his staff at Narcissus do a great job! Their arrangements always look terrific and are not your typical run of the mill arrangements. I highly recommend them.

We are overwhelmed not only by the originality and beauty of their work, but by their generosity to our Y. Thank you Narcissus!

The beauty and creativity of a Narcissus arrangement is absolutely unrivaled. Ken and the team do a phenomenal job every time, especially with weddings. And Linda is particularly wonderful to work with on requests. All around, far and away the most impressive florist I've ever worked with - I'll never take my business anyplace else.

Ken and his Narcissus team designed the beautiful floral arrangements for my daughter's wedding. Almost three yeasrs later, people still comment on how beautiful the flowers were at her wedding! Whether it's flowers for a wedding, sympathy arrangement, holidays, or just to tell someone you love them, Ken's beautiful designs are the best in the state. Outstanding!

Narcissus is hands down thee best of the best! Top notch service with a smile, couldn't ask for a nicer, more welcoming experience! Cannot wait for them to do the flowers for my upcoming June wedding!

For the last several years, I raved and recommended "Flowers by Addalia" to my friends and family.... but two months ago a very close friend passed away, and I wanted to send something "different" to the wake because my friend was very special to me. I ordered an arrangement of sunflowers from the online catalog. Cost me a pretty penny too, but I felt it would be worth it. Sunflowers were my friend's favorite flowers. I even paid extra to have more Sunflowers in the arrangement and less of the filler ferns and stuff. Well, let me tell you, the arrangement was U.G.L.Y -- Really UGLY. NONE of the sunflowers were open more than a quarter of the way! Oh yeah, there were at least 5 or 6 of them, instead of 3, but they were CLOSED up! OMG, I was appalled. It looked like a spooky Halloween arrangement. Never again will I trust Addelia's. Back to my old first choice -- Skip's.

Skip's made my wedding something me and my family will always remember. They took my idea and made it just perfect in every way. THANK YOU!!!!!
Nicholas April 27, 2012 at 01:09 PM
Ken and his staff at Narcissus are absolutely wonderful!
Michelle Skolnik April 27, 2012 at 02:03 PM
It's very humbling to see all the votes for Skip's Florist. We must be doing something right to have our wonderful customers come out and vote for us. I also would like to add that it's great to see that the floral business is still thriving, no matter who wins, we are still an industry people want and appreciate, we all win in that aspect. :) Much love from, Sandy, Stella and Michelle Skolnik (owners of Skip's)
Michelle Skolnik April 27, 2012 at 02:07 PM
Ken, I couldn't agree with you more... It's the best feeling in the world to bring a smile to somebody's face. xoxoxo Love to you and your family, Michelle S.
