Every week my husband orders one, two or sometimes three bouquets from Monsoon to cheer me up and to celebrate our life together. The flowers arrive each week with a heartfelt note that sets the tone for the new week. I highly recommend that approach for any couple out there that wants to keep the romance going. One bouquet is usually a larger size bouquet for the center of the dining room table and one is for our bedroom- often, there is a third small bouquet for the living room. All three different all three exquisite.
Monsoon does such an incredible job that I can comfortably say I have never received the same or similar bouquet. Many florists repeat the design over and over — never at Monsoon unless it’s what you request. Monsoon scopes the flower market and brings the freshest and most original flowers in the market (often flowers you never heard of unless you are a horticulturist) and then the staff creates the most unusual and stunning bouquets. It is hard to believe that Monsoon is a local NJ florist since their work is comparable to the best florists in New York or perhaps surpasses them which is no easy feat! Some of the staff trained in Europe and at New York high profile florists. They are so good at arranging the flowers that each week I can’t stop the urge to document the arrangements and take photographs. One week the bouquet is reminiscent of a Dutch still life, one week a country classic, another week an elegant arrangement of the freshest roses. I have often given Monsoon a picture for inspiration and they always do an arrangement that uses the picture as a muse but puts their own more beautiful spin on the arrangement that they send. The last time my husband sent roses they lasted for two weeks because of the care Monsoon took in prepping the roses.
Monsoon stands by their product and only sends the freshest flowers-mostly purchased that morning at the flower market. Additionally, the customer service is incredible and very responsive. Whenever I throw a dinner party someone from Monsoon will come to my home ahead of time and discuss what type of table I plan to set and we plan the arrangements together. Again each time its fresh, gorgeous and different. Also, I usually prefer to have the arrangements done in my own vases so Monsoon accommodates me by picking up my vases (each weeks something different) and bringing back perfect arrangements. They are so customer oriented that sometimes they even perfect the arrangement in my home.
The flowers are gorgeous and the staff at Monsoon are so nice to work with — they are as thrilled as I am with the arrangements. I have posted the arrangements on Facebook many times and I have personally received accolades from many of my friends that are now customers of Monsoon.
So if you are looking to brighten your home or to send a gift of flowers Monsoon is the only florist that I would recommend in New Jersey not only because the flowers are stunning and different but the level of service cannot be matched. Once I did not like the arrangement (wrong colors) and they switched it out immediately with a smile! If I had to rate Monsoon they would get a 10 out of 10.
A very satisfied customer!
