Mara's reputation for beautiful flower arrangements and great customer service is well known. Here are just few Yelp testimonials of what her clients are saying about Frangipani Flowers & Gifts:
I came across Mara only a few months ago when she was still the owner of a little flower shop next to Fargo. I would come and pick up a nice bouquet for my wife every week until she sold the shop. It was a delightful surprise to discover that Mara was still doing business and that she could deliver those beautiful bouquets directly to my office in SR.
I love it, Thanks!

Mara was an absolute dream to work with! She did our bridal and bridesmaids bouquets, boutonnières, table leaves and rose petals, a beautiful table arrangement for our sweetheart table, along with a gorgeous flower adorned wooden arch for our ceremony. It was very easy from start to finish, we sent her inspiration images which she followed very closely and exceeded our expectations. Colors, textures, and composition of everything were perfect. Mara was also very budget conscious, which we really appreciated. She delivered and set up everything on time and exactly as we'd discussed. Thank you for making our day so beautiful Mara!

This was the most wonderful service - Mara is amazing. I told her that my friend was having a hard time and she hand crafted a gorgeous bouquet for her and delivered it the same day! She was so understanding that I was tough to get a hold of for payment as I was trying to get my baby to sleep but once we connected she was so gracious and kind. Such amazing customer service and such a talented florist!

A wonderful experience working with Mara for 8 boutonnieres, my bridal bouquet, and my floral combs. She was extremely accommodating throughout the whole process and I sent her pictures of what I wanted and she gave me reassurance of her ability throughout. I wanted a rustic feel and had a bouquet of baby's breath and a few spray roses and purple-blue fillers (not sure what plant) with eucalyptus leaves, and the floral hair pieces were the same roses with the filler. The boutonnieres were succulents with white and green fillers and gorgeous. She even asked if I wanted the groom's boutonnieres bigger and different than the others, which I hadn't thought of but I loved when I saw them. My bridesmaids and I made our own bridesmaids bouquets from Costco baby's breath which matched Mara's large blooms perfectly. My bouquet was beautiful and full with eucalyptus that flowed downwards. I got them the day before and kept them in water and the boutonnieres in their plastic cases in the fridge and they still all looked fresh the day of.
A pleasure working with Mara, she's super sweet and made sure I liked what I got, and very affordable.

The best customer service!! I was flying in from Southern California to see my son graduate at Dominican. I called on the way to the airport to see about ordering a lei as i didn't want to fly with it and mess it up. Mara was so sweet and extremely helpful. Not only did she go out of her way to check her supplies as she just returned from the flower mart. We messaged back and forth and I ordered with no expectation. Not only did Mara come through, she delivered it to my hotel before I even arrived!! Lifesaver! The graduation and the Lei was beautiful. Thank you so much for making this incredible day even more special!

Wow - all these reviews are right. Mara is AMAZING! She spent so much time with me this morning, texting me photos of flowers for a thank-you bouquet until it was just perfection. And I (without meaning to cause her agita) was definitely giving her Goldilocks moments and not making it so easy! She was so patient, thoughtful, and creative.
What I ended up with was the Halle Berry of arrangements - it might take a lot of work to look that naturally beautiful, but it ends up looking like you just threw it together in a carefree, exquisitely poetic way.
The delivery charge was completely reasonable as well. I couldn't be more delighted with Frangipani Flowers and look forward to a long ongoing relationship!
