Ode à la Rose, a new NYC based online rose delivery boutique, is bringing the luxury and style back to the way New Yorkers send flowers this Mother's Day. In a market saturated with national big-box floral chains and local offline florists, that have been playing by the same rules for the last 30 years, Ode à la Rose has found a way to merge innovation with tradition by bringing the boutique Mom & Pop feel of a local flower shop into the digital era.

Founded by two French financiers-turned florists, Olivier Plusquellec and Louis Brunet, their goal is to bring a more personal ‘Mom & Pop’ feel to the online floral delivery market by doing everything in-house, from mornings at the flower market down to hand tying each bouquet. With their focus on high-end quality, they provide the feel of luxury at mid-level pricing. Along with exquisite presentation and a real-time photo follow-up to the purchaser (so you know exactly what was sent), they’re able to cater to the buyer as well as the recipient.
Here are some of the interesting services from Ode à la Rose:
Customization: Customers can customize their bouquet and before it is delivered, a photo of the bouquet is sent to the buyer to ensure that the desired effect has been achieved.
Quality: High-end quality & sophistication, with mid-level pricing
Local: Roses are sourced locally from neighboring wholesalers in the Flower District which are supplied by the best rose growers from around the world
