We Have the Experience....... Owner, and master floral designer Lisa is a third generation of well established family florists across Long Island. She created Tributes Floral Company in 1998 followed by ecommerce store BuyRosePetals.com in 2000.
As a woman owned small business on Long Island, Tributes Floral Company started selling online when 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 90 colors, which we continue to sell today.About the Company...
