Valentine's Day Information 2023
We encourage all our customers to place a Valentine's Day order before February 10. If you place an order after this date we cannot guarantee a delivery on February 14. A flower order placed after February 10 may result in a delivery either on the 15th, 16th or as late as the 17th of February due to demand for flowers in this very busy week.
Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the Europe. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value.
Flowers may not be available/limited due to inventory supplies during the Valentines holiday. However, we will make every effort to ensure substitutions are equal in value and style.
Customers of Maria Fiorista that order flowers from mariafiorista.com, or any other subsidiary website, agree to the following terms and conditions. Maria Fiorista is entitled to change these terms and conditions at their own discretion.
Maria Fiorista offers a same day flower delivery service throughout Italy, our standard delivery starts at €10. However, this fee may go up dependent on where you want the flowers delivered in relation to where our member florists are located. If extra delivery is required, Maria Fiorista will normally cover up to a certain amount, you will be contacted to discuss the extra delivery cost.
Whilst we do not guarantee times for delivery we do attempt to get flowers delivered within a reasonable timeframe. That is, flowers ordered the day before the delivery date will usually be delivered on the morning of the following day.
Please be aware that these times may vary if your order falls outside of a regular delivery area, or special occasions like Valentine’s Day, International Womens day, Mother’s Day, or Christmas Day. On these special occasions extra delivery costs may be incurred.
At times Flowers or Plants may require substitution when they are not available or when they are out of season. This applies to both local and imported flowers & plants.The colours shown online will be used if at all possible otherwise we will replace them with other kinds of flowers or plants of equal or greater value.
If you have ordered flowers that are going to lots or rural addresses Maria Fiorista cannot guarantee that your flowers will get delivered.
When the product has been delivered by our trusted courier network, it is then the responsibility of the recipient to care for their products.
Maria Fiorista does not guarantee delivery times.
Whilst Maria Fiorista does offer same day delivery of flowers to all parts of Europe & the UK there are some situations or exceptions where this may not be possible. This may include, but not necessarily limited to the following reasons:

- The recipients contact number is incorrect
- Delivery Times – Metropolitan & Large Regional Areas
Maria Fiorista offers a same day delivery flower service. If you order before 1pm the day you want them delivered, Maria Fiorista guarantees that your flowers will be delivered that day.(The recipient must be available for the acceptance of the delivery unless otherwise agreed by both parties.)

Extra delivery charges will apply or exceptions to same day delivery when:
