Substitution Policy

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to availabilty of certain flowers in various parts of the country/seasonal availabilty. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color of the arrangment, using flowers of equal value. 

Arrangments that are designs unique to 'The Checkered Lily' will be created highlighting the most unique flowers in the chosen arrangement and a color change will be made if necessary to incoprorate those specialty flowers.
