These are our terms and conditions which set out our commitment to delivering unique products of the highest quality and personal customer service. In dealing with live and precious products and with 3rd party delivery companies, issues can occasionally occur. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions.
Due to the nature of flowers and plants, their market price is not fixed, but will fluctuate depending on the weather and other economic factors. Should the cost of flowers for your Order increase by more than 10%, Flowers by Maggie reserves the right to increase the prices given in the estimate to you to reflect this, or you can allow us to choose a different variety of flowers to those suggested in your estimate that are at a lower price. We will of course contact you first to discuss this in greater detail.
Please telephone if you have an emergency order. If you require specific flowers please telephone at least 48 hours before delivery is required.
Equipment hired/supplied (jugs, bottles, vases, plinths, candelabras, etc.) remain the property of Flowers by Maggie. Charges will be made for any glassware returned cracked, chipped or broken. Replacement of goods is charged at the current purchase price.
Flowers By Maggie Florist are not responsible for theft or damage of flowers, plants or sundries
There are certain situations or events which may occur that are not within our reasonable control (some examples are given below). Where one of these occurs we will normally attempt to recommence performing the Services as soon as the situation which has stopped us performing the Services has been resolved. In such circumstances there may be a delay (sometimes a substantial delay) before we can start or continue performing the Services.
The following are examples of events or situations which are not within in our reasonable control:
If the delay in us recommencing performing the Services will be excessive then we will offer you the option of either:
A £50% Booking Fee is required to secure your Order. If you decide to cancel your Order (otherwise than within 14 days) this Booking Fee is non-refundable.
If, after the expiry of the 14-day period mentioned, you decide to postpone the date of the event for which you have made your Order we will hold your Booking Fee for up to six months (6 months) until your event goes ahead, or if it is not possible for us to perform the Services on the new date chosen by you or if the new date chosen by you is longer than six months (6 months) ahead then your Booking Fee will be forfeited.
The Booking Fee will be subtracted from the agreed Fee and this subtraction will be acknowledged on your final invoice.
We will not accept the order and reserve the date until the Booking Fee has been paid.
Once the Booking Fee has been paid then the prices and dates are secure except as otherwise provided in these terms and conditions.
All flowers are subject to availability and stringent quality checks. Whilst we try our best to source your chosen flowers, sometimes supplier problems or quality control can affect this. Flowers by Maggie will however aim to warn you of this as soon as the issue becomes known, in order to discuss the best way forward. However at times Flowers by Maggie may have to substitute for the same value and quality without notice.
We do not guarantee specific stem types.
When placing your completed Order please indicate whether you have chosen to leave us to choose a mix of flowers at our complete discretion, or have asked us to work to a colour and style palette, based on our preliminary discussions with you, however please note this never produces identical flowers or designs to photographs or illustrations which you may have seen, those are used as a general illustration only. We will choose what we consider to be the most appropriate mix of fresh flowers, which are available with our local suppliers, to work with.
We take care of our flowers and ensure freshness and quality at all times. We reserves the right to take photographs of flowers and the setting in which we have arranged them prior to the commencement of the event for which they were ordered. You acknowledge and agree that we own the copyright to such photographs and may freely use them for marketing, illustrative and promotional purposes. We will, of course, take reasonable steps to protect your personal identity when using such photographs.
We do not exclude or limit liability for our negligence or negligent omission which causes personal injury or results in death but otherwise, to the fullest extent allowed by law, Flowers by Maggie excludes all other liability and accepts no liability for injury, loss or damage to you, or any third party, in respect of the provision of the Services or of any equipment hired from us for use at an event, including (without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) we exclude all indirect and consequential loss, loss of profits, loss of sales or business, loss of anticipated savings, loss of or damage to goodwill, loss of or damage to reputation.
