I called J. Miller from Bahrain to
request for a flower arrangement to be delivered to a relative
living in the States. Valerie answered my call and was extremely
helpful - she took down my order details and processed my payment
over the phone, and it was all done in a few minutes! A few hours
later, and to my surprise, I got an email from Valerie with
images of the bouquet she arranged; the flowers looked
I highly recommend J. Miller. Their arrangements are affordable
and creative, and their customer service is exceptional!!

Thank you so much for your outreach, your compassion and
sensitivity to the flowers that we ordered from our Peace Corps
group. You have me as a lifetime customer in the bay area.
James C. / Santa Monica
I used Valerie, the owner, for my recent wedding ceremony and
reception flowers. She did a stellar job and I was extremely
impressed with her quality arrangements. We were able to keep my
wife's bouquet alive for over a week! I will definitely be
using her for all my flower needs in the future. Highly
recommended! You can't go wrong!
David B. / Groom :)
J. Miller did the flowers for my daughter Mary's wedding in
June 2013, including 11 boutonnieres, 7 bridesmaid bouquets,
bridal bouquet, 12 table centerpieces, 3 buffet table pieces and
a large church floral bouquet.
All of the floral displays were outstanding! Valerie was helpful,
knowledgeable, and friendly. She and her staff executed my
daughter's vision for the wedding flowers perfectly. People
were impressed by the glorious centerpieces and my daughter was
thrilled with her beautiful bridal bouquet. I comparison shopped
prices at several other local florists and J. Miller's prices
were very competitive. We were extremely pleased with the quality
of service, attention to detail and the exquisitve flowers from
J. Miller. I highly recommend them!

As always, your flowers
I wanted to thank you
again for the extraordinarily beautiful flower arrangements you
provided for our large dinner event. The arrangements were
exactly what I wanted and I really loved them. Ialso
received many verbal and email comments from our guests about how
beautiful they were. As there were 15 table arrangements in all,
at the end of the evening I sent one each home with many
of our guests--they were delighted to get them. And the 2 large
and very special urn arrangements remained in the event hall so
that the members of the many classes held there during the
week could enjoy them. I couldn't have been happier with the
caring service, choice of flowers.
arrangement design, and room set-up provided by the two of you
and your staff.
Many, many thanks,
I had ordered
two arrangements for my son's Bar Mitzvah last weekend and I
just wanted to let you know that they were lovely!
Thank you so much – D. B. Sosebee/Oakland
Here is a most honest and sincere commentary about my wonderful
yearly flower delivery. I hope you can use all or some of it to
encourage others to take advantage of the joy and delight of
getting deliveries or just making purchases from your
I must say it again--thank you so much for the really unique,
beautiful, creative creations you send us each month, and thank
you for the really nice, wonderful delivery people!
I love having
fresh flowers in the house and always strive to at least have
something by our front door that is immediately visual to anyone
entering. I think it conveys feelings of warmth and welcome. So
several years ago my husband gave me one of the nicest birthday
presents ever--a year's worth of bouquets that arrived each
month on the day of my birthday. I doubt he had planned on doing
this beyond that year, but he too so enjoyed getting the flowers,
that we continue to look forward to our newest bouquet of the
We have never been disappointed nor bored. In fact, there have
been occasions when these bouquets have arrived during times of
stress or unhappiness and have immediately made things much
brighter. Each month brings something extremely interesting and
unique. Some bouquets have very clever foundations into which
flowers are arranged, and I can save and re-use these structures
for my own arrangements. The artistry of these creations and the
huge scope of flower varietals are truly spectacular.
Added to this artistry, J. Miller is a family owned business, and
the owners make it a point to know who you are. They are
extremely accommodating when provided with a list of what you
like/dislike, as well as with issues concerning the delivery
schedule. I've attended one of their flower arranging
classes, another service they do exceptionally well. Unlike a lot
of floral shops where you get only a few flowers for a large cash
outlay, I always feel like I'm getting much more than what
I've paid for.
I have really appreciated the personal interest and concern of
all the staff at J. Miller, and the wonderful delivery people who
each month bring me these extremely unique, beautiful, and
Bobbie Z., San
I took two
terrific flower arranging classes at J. Miller Flowers.
They were fun and reasonably priced, and included refreshments.
After each class I took home two flower arrangements. If I had
purchased them, the arrangements would have cost more than the
Recently I attended my father-in-law's memorial service in
Albuquerque, NM. Before the service I went to look at the place
where the reception was to be held, and decided it looked too
much like a cafeteria. I went home and, using the skills I
learned in Valerie's classes, made 6 flower arrangements for
centerpieces. They were exquisite, if I do say so myself, and
they totally transformed the look of the reception.
My husband's family were thrilled, especially my
mother-in-law. She has been very ill and it was nice to see her
cheered up for a change. After the reception she gave the
centerpieces away to her friends, and they were thrilled too. I
was so happy to be able to contribute something to this event,
and got a lot of satisfaction from seeing how happy my
mother-in-law and her friends were. I got a lot of nice feedback
from my husband's family afterward. It was a very satisfying
experience. If I hadn't taken Valerie's classes I
wouldn't have had the confidence to attempt it.

and service are three traits that best describe our recent
experience with J. Miller Flowers regarding our daughter's
wedding in August 2010. I would not hesitate to use them again
for future floral needs and enthusiastically recommend them to
friends and family as well.
Like one of the other reviewers, we had planned to obtain
proposals from three florists. We visited J Miller first because
we had been very satisfied with flowers from them in the past. My
daughter and I went to the shop in May, a little over three
months before the wedding, to make an appointment to discuss
flowers for the proposal. Valerie encouraged us to review several
of their workbooks to get ideas in advance of the appointment. A
few days later, we arrived for the appointment with a list of
floral items that we needed for the wedding, swatches of the
colors and ideas from the workbooks and their website. We had a
modest budget, and Valerie totally respected that. She grabbed
flowers to put together mock bridal & bridesmaid's
bouquets and table arrangements in order to give us a good idea
as to how they would look. She also did mock corsages and
boutonnières and showed us the various ribbon choices that we
had. As a special treat, we each got to pick a rose stem of our
choice upon leaving. We had been a bit stressed about the
flowers, but after the meeting we were excited about what we had
seen and eagerly awaited the proposal, which came the next day.
We were thrilled that the total was actually under our budget. We
decided to look no more and went with J Miller.
On the day of the wedding, they delivered the bouquets,
boutonnières and corsages to our home right on time; about an
hour before the photographer was due to arrive for the bridal
prep photos. They were gorgeous!! The flowers were so fresh, and
they looked even lovelier than we had imagined from the mockups.
J Miller had finished putting out all the table arrangements
shortly before we arrived at the venue for the ceremony and
reception. I walked into the dining room and was absolutely
delighted! We did not know exactly all the flowers that would be
used for the table arrangements, but again, they were more
beautiful than we had envisioned, and the flowers were so fresh.
They looked great even almost two weeks after the wedding! Guests
were thrilled to take home the extra arrangements. We were
thoroughly satisfied with the quality, value and service that we
received. Many thanks to Valerie, Robin, Kelly and the crew at J
Miller for doing such a super job with our flowers!

In the past I
have ordered flowers for my sister, Martha. She tells me about
what she received and often sends pictures of the arrangement. I
have never been disappointed. Today she received the Sensational
arrangement. From our conversation today I would have to say you
far exceeded my expectations. Can't wait to see the pictures
of this beautiful orchid. Many thanks!!
P.S. I always give special instructions for delivery and
appreciate your special accommodations.
Thank you and the
employees of J. Miller Flowers and Gifts for always sending the
freshest and prettiest arranged bouquet of flowers. I always
receive the most heartfelt appreciation when I send flowers
arranged from J. Miller. I will always use J. Miller Flowers and
Gifts because I know the flowers will be received with great joy
and complete satisfaction. Yesterday was a rush order and J.
Miller did not fail to deliver, on time, the most beautifully
arranged bouquet. J. Miller is the best the Bay Area has to
offer, and the delivery service is superb. Again, thank
