Where do you turn when you want a less standard floral arrangement to send to a loved one? Experience a more upscale flower delivery, from fantastic local providers through this website.

Ordering flower arrangements online just got classier. BloomNation showcases upscale, beautifully-styled bouquets from local florists around the country. Here’s how it works. Type in your zip code to discover florists in your neck of the woods, pick your flower arrangement, and you will see an actual photo of the arrangement before it goes out.

Photo above shows a minimalist, zen arrangement that I thought would tie in perfectly with my July 4th celebration party plan, which features recipes and accoutrement  in red and white. Flowers are from Mak Floral Design in Brooklyn, a Phalaenopsis orchid with curly willow. bloomnation.com
