We  Have the  Experience.......

As a woman owned small business on Long Island,  Tributes Floral Company started selling online when what everyone knows as the internet of today, barely existed.  How did we start selling rose petals?  At the time we were doing a local wedding when a Bride had requested artitficial rose petals.  When our local suppliers did not have them, through determination and hard work, we found a great manufacturer with a very good quality rose petal which they designed and created for us a simple line of silk rose petals in ten basic colors.

These ten colors of silk rose petals have grown to a large color pallette of over 75 colors, which we continue to sell today to both local New York clients and worldwide shipping through our web store buyrosepetals.com.  We continue to bring the highest quality products to you on a consistent basis and keep with current color trends.

A word from the owner "Our customers are loyal and those who have been with us since the beginning, have seen us grow, expand and change through the years.   There have been many challenges for small business owners in recent years with the economy, and for me especially in 2009 when I was trying to deal with my trajic losses and run my business.  It took some time, but my customers were loyal and I thank you for it, we made it through and we have rebuilt a bigger, better web site and will continue to serve our clients with the same quality products and service today as we did in 1998.
