The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission has issued The Personal Florist a licence to deliver beer, liquor, wine, and champagne.


Our drivers and salespersons are “Pro-Serve” certified – and we take this seriously!  We will ensure that anyone who receives a gift basket from The Personal Florist is legally able to receive alcohol.  Only persons of legal drinking age can order from our website.  Alcohol purchased should be for the personal consumption of the gift recipient and not for resale.  As required by the AGLC, we will request proof of age and a signature certifying the age of the purchaser/receiver of alcohol.


The Personal Florist will comply with the rules and regulations as set out by the AGLC relating to this Liquor Delivery Service License.  


All wine, champagne, beer and liquor or liquor containing baskets sold by The Personal Florist will be charged a $15 delivery fee.

We do our best to ensure the substitute matches the colour coordination and basket type of your order.

Floral Designs and Arrangements for Weddings, Anniversary, Debuts, Corporate Events, etc.


For Refunds and Cancellations, please refer to your event contract.


Substitutions

The Personal Florist always strives to deliver your arrangement to the exact specifications of the image on our web site. We do our best to keep the web site up to date with seasonal available flowers, and to only show vases we keep currently in stock. Sometimes we unfortunately have to deviate from the exact image as shown, and this page is meant to explain our process of decision making. The decisions break down into two categories, Minor Substitutions and Major Substitutions.


Minor Substitutions

Minor substitutions are required from time to time. If we are concerned of a change, you will be contacted immediately and multiple attempts will be made if we are unable to do so. If possible, a message will be left to let you know of the alteration.


Examples of Minor Substitution
• Sometimes flower colours need to be rotated, ie. Pink Gerberas and Yellow Alstromeria are changed for Yellow Gerberas and Pink Alstromeria. The Substitution is minor because the Flowers used in the design hasn't been changed, and the the Balance of Colours remains the same. Please let us know if a particular flower HAS to be a particular colour in the composition.
• Sometimes we will replace a flower with a fancier flower at no extra cost, for instance if Pink Spray Roses are unavailable, we may replace them with LS Roses at no extra cost.

• Sometimes a container has to be switched for a very similar container, for instance a 6" clear glass cylinder will be replaced with a 7" or 8" clear glass cylinder. A small plastic dish could be changed for a small wicker basket of the same dimensions and colours. A change in Colour of container would be a major Substitution and you should always be contacted first.


Major Substitutions

Major Substitutions are rarely required, but we will contact you in every way that is available to us (email, phone, etc) and we will confirm the change with you before we fill the order.

Examples of Major Substitutions:

• Changes in shape or colour of container for flowers

• Change of colour or flower in the primary flower of an arrangement (White Roses instead of Pink)

• Change in type of flower in a key position, (Yellow Gerberas instead of Sunflowers)


Special Occasion Flower Arrangements


No Returns, Refunds or Cancellations on Special Occasion Flower Arrangement Orders. All arrangements are hand-delivered to ensure recipient receives their flowers. However, if after arrangements are made with the recipient for delivery and the recipient has not followed through with delivery arrangements made (after two attempts), they will be informed that pick-up is required. Once informed of pick-up, it is up to the recipient to obtain the flowers as soon as possible for freshness. We cannot be held liable for freshness once pick-up is required as it now depends on the recipient. We cannot be held liable for damages once recipient receives order.


Substitutions

See above: Floral Designs and Arrangements for Weddings, Anniversary, Debuts, Corporate Events, etc.


Re-Delivery

Once we’ve made an attempt to deliver your gift, we leave a delivery notice on the recipient’s door and wait 24 hours for their response (please note we are not liable whether they see it or not). Should we not receive one in that time, we contact the recipient if possible and leave a message if possible, and/or we may contact the purchaser. We may not contact the recipient again thereafter. Should another 24 hours pass before they contact us, the gift is considered delivered. They may pick up their gift, should they contact us thereafter, but it may be restocked for reselling. Should we re-deliver and no one is there to receive it again, we will leave a notice but we consider it delivered and will return the gift to the store. At our discretion, we may restock the gift for reselling.


Centerpiece Kits


Substitutions

We will not make any substitutions for your centerpiece kits without your expressed permission.

Our delivery policy for centerpiece kits are the same as for gift baskets (we use FEDEX and Canada Post).


Claims

All damage claims, discrepancies and late delivery claims must be made within 3 business days of the kits being received. There will be NO exceptions to this policy. If a kit arrives damaged or there is a discrepancy, The Personal Florist will make every effort to resolve the issue in a timely manner and to your satisfaction. Credits and/or replacements will be given at the sole discretion of The Personal Florist and will only be issued if damaged kits or discrepancies can be verified by the carrier. Do not dispose of the kits or packaging before we can verify the damages/discrepancy with the carrier as we will not send any replacements otherwise. All claims must be issued in writing by email. Claims will not be accepted by phone.

All damaged shipments must be reported within 3 business days. We will make every effort to replace damaged items within this time, however we cannot be responsible for damage not reported within this time frame. Please keep all damaged merchandise and packaging as it may be requested by the carrier.

Return Policy

Once shipped, centerpiece kits are non-refundable. Requests for delivery of kits for less than 2 weeks prior to the event are non-refundable except for damage claims (see above).
