Please note that USPS shipments (First Class, Priority Mail) are not insured and do not have a guaranteed transit time, you as the buyer assume all risk for any USPS shipping method. We recommend FedEx Ground shipping for insured and guaranteed service. USPS shipping methods should only be used for low value shipments and samples.

Standard Shipping: We now offer a Standard Shipping option starting at only $3.95.  These orders typically ship via the US Postal Service, so if you need your order within the next two weeks, we recommend selecting a FedEx service for guaranteed transit time. Available to US addresses only.

Orders for freeze dried rose petals placed in advance are entered into our reservation system where we schedule a shipping date based on your occasion date and zip code. Your petals typically ship about 3 weeks before use for the best quality, while ordering in advance guarantees availability of your color and quantity. If you need them sooner or have any special requirements, please use the Special Instructions area on the Checkout page. You can expect freeze dried rose petals to arrive approximately 2 weeks prior to your event date. Please note that if you are paying by credit card, we do not charge your card until the petals ship.

Orders for silk rose petals are generally shipped either the same day (prior to 4pm Eastern time) or by the next business day when in stock, so please choose your shipping method accordingly. If you have an urgent need, please call or email us and we will make every effort to assist you.

Because we strive to ship orders as soon as possible, we are not able to cancel orders after they have been processed and a shipping label created.  They can, however, be returned according to our return policy listed below.  If we are able to retrieve your shipment prior to carrier pickup, we can refund the shipping and process a return less a 10% restocking charge to cover processing costs and shipping materials.

Guaranteed transit times and policies are based on each carriers' published information available at their respective websites. Delays caused by acts of nature are not covered by any carriers' guarantee, therefore, any such delays are not eligible for shipping refunds. You must verify that the shipping address on your order is valid. If an address correction is necessary to properly deliver your package and we incur a charge, additional shipping charges may apply.
