What a beautiful homecoming for me, Ed! I was thrilled to pull up to the house and see it looking glorious - lush, colorful and proud. Just what I had wished!
I haven't been home more than 1/2 hour, and will get back to you on specific impressions. In short, your design was 100% on target for the style of the home, and for my own esthetics. Lovely - looks like it has been here some time; no overt announcement of a brand new planting!
Big smiles and so much gratitude to you...
And, from what I can see - and hear from the kids, my parents and neighbors - your team was so capable, clean, quick. Bravo. ;-)
The flower arrangements you did for our reception this past Saturday could not have been more gorgeous. I am still amazed that my brief talk with your designer produced results that were absolutely perfect! Everyone commented on how beautiful the flowers were. Thank you for helping make the day special. Best wishes for the new year!—Judy G
I just got a good look at the fall display this morning. It is PHENOMENAL. You outdid yourselves. Can't wait to see how it looks when the mums bloom. Thanks for making us the talk of the block!—Alexis
Can’t thank you enough for the AMAZING flowers. Michael you are a genius…..The environment you created was just beautiful. It’s incredible to see how you survey the space and then create the most perfect environment. The contemporary “hip” feel you designed for the modern space was JUST PERFECT!! Loved every special touch you created! And the topiaries were just perfect for that space! I do think we need to have you work with JHouse on a permanent basis..the perfect fit! Many thanks again have a great weekend!—Laurinda
Thanks for doing such a beautiful job on my wedding bouquets and table arrangements. I wanted to share my magazine article with you from Westchester Magazine. My wedding is the featured wedding this month and McArdle’s is beautifully highlighted as a great florist in the article, and the florist contact information is displayed as well.
The care, time and quality Michael put into the flowers for our daughter's wedding were incredible. We could not have been more pleased. McArdle's and Michael....thank you!—Susan P
A huge note of thanks Ed for coming to my home yesterday. I have given you free reign to pick all plants and pots because I feel very confident in your level of expertise and I am equally impressed with your professionalism and integrity. My home looks beautiful with all the new plants and makes me smile :)
I look forward to seeing how the ivy installation goes on the 9th!
The pots turned out absolutely gorgeous this year!!!!!! Woo hoo, they are a huge hit!!!!! I understand you used a different kind of evergreen branch, that is more upright, which looks absolutely fabulous in the pots. Plus the berries makes them look ultra festive. Very chic and lush and elegant. Thank you so much!—Valerie
I wanted to write a short note of appreciation for the work done by Michael Derouin on my daughter's wedding at Belle Haven August 17th. Michael did a beautiful job and was a pleasure to work with. We were thrilled with the flowers and are very happy we chose McArdle's.—Lauren B
Thank you so much for all you did to make Alice's wedding reception magical. The room looked fantastic and all of your ideas and suggestions were invaluable. The bouquets were also spectacular and just what the bride envisioned. We both thoroughly enjoyed working with you. From the start, we felt that you completely understood what Alice wanted and your execution was flawless. It's unusual to find someone who is both creative AND organized, but you excelled in both areas. I especially appreciated your prompt responses to all our questions and how you quickly translated our ideas to a detailed written record. I just wanted you to know how much we appreciated all you did for us.—Anna T
Good morning. The mc ardles elves outdid it!! My home is the Christmas wonderland I hoped for. Thank you so much!!—Maria

You have my complete approval. You are an artist and a consummate professional. Thanks for your excellent response.—F. R.
Wow!!! We both came home moments ago and LOVE the mums!!!!! You are amazing and can't thank you enough. So happy!—Rhonda
Thank you! The flowers were beautiful. Everyone loved the centerpieces and the bouquets. I LOVED LOVED LOVED my bouquet-- it was gorgeous. When the photos come in-- probably not for another 6 weeks or so-- I will try and remember to send you a bunch. Thanks for helping to make the day a dream come true.—Lauren
Everything was perfect, thank you so much! We loved the girls bouquets and loved the way the tables looked and loved, loved the wheat grass table! When we get pictures we will send them along, thank you again for everything. it was so great to work with someone that really listened and gave Jessica and Brian just what they wanted!—Linda T and Family
A million thanks, Ed, for your special surprise installation today!! All the plantings are even more beautiful than I imagined and we are so pleased. What a super crew you have at McArdles-- hard-working, friendly, polite, and talented.—Carolyn and Bob G
Thank you for the excellent flowers. I had stopped purchasing flowers at florists due to a long run of poor quality. You have restored my faith in quality florists. Thank you.—Tim C
Many thanks to John for taking such good care of me! Made the order from Tokyo but was a relief to know I was in good hands, and such a pleasure to work with him. And my friend Megan absolutely loved the flowers!
Every year we buy our tree and have it delivered. Your service at the store and your delivery representatives have made buying a tree a painless experience. Very professional and your service people understand the benefits of being friendly. We have encouraged our friends to visit your nursery.—Dean N
These hydrangeas are amazingly beautiful! I LOVE them!—Susan
Just wanted to Thank you for your quick service and beautiful plantings. Olympia did a wonderful job and was very knowledgeable and helpful in our selections. She also completed the window boxes quickly as my daughter-in-law is having an engagement party on Saturday night and wanted to have them displayed.
Thanks again and I was very pleased with your excellent service.
Once again your team has outdone yourselves!!!!—Clare
I hope you enjoyed your holiday.
I wanted to express my appreciation to you of your business. I have been coming to McArdles for many years and I can always count on how helpful everyone is, and how lovely the experience. I did however, want to specifically mention how special Sari has always been... whether I am there to purchase a few orchids, a gift, Christmas trees, and most recently, as you know, to plan the service for my dearest friend.
Sari is more than 'just knowledgeable' with flowers and plants, more than 'just knowledgeable' with what works and what does not, she has a great talent. She has that extra special added touch that completes the 'original idea' or 'intension,' with great attention to detail. Sari also has the most dependable manner, without being pushy, she guides in a way that I am able to feel confident when I leave with what I have purchased or with the direction I am going in when planning an event. She is always available, with a smile and with very clear input and great 'taste level.'
Life is busy, but the importance of having 'things' done right - with follow through and precision makes everyday just a little easier and a lot more beautiful.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you what a pleasure it was to order from Brook this morning. She could not have been more helpful or pleasant to speak to. Further, I thought you should know that although I work in the Fairfield county area I live quite a distance from the office so I wasn’t sure what florist in Greenwich to use, your website was the nicest I came across and easy to navigate.
Best of luck to you and your staff in your continued endeavors, the recipient of the arrangement I sent today was thrilled, and so am I with your service.
I look forward to doing business again.
Wow! What a drop dead stunning arrangement! The flowers are just gorgeous! And unusual in the brilliance of their colors. They will be immensely enjoyed. Thank you so very much.—C. S
Just want to say thank you for taking care of the plantings by the gate & pool. Everything looks great.
Have a wonderful weekend.
