Fresh Fruit | Fresh Veggies

How fortunate we are to be able to design Fresh Fruit | Fresh Veggies gift baskets for wonderful people like you!

Imagine my excitement to design and deliver BOTH a Fresh Fruit and a Fresh Veggies gift basket to a “starving ASU student” last week! And her aunt even added a doggie basket for her 3 dogs!

I had carte-blanche for the goodies, which really makes it fun. I found fresh fruit in abundance (it’s between seasons and everything is really fresh)…apples, pears, kiwi, pineapple, bananas, mango, grapes, apricots, pears.

And the veggies. What fun to choose fresh veggies! Kale, peppers, eggplant, radishes and lots more!

Then I took care of Fido!

Abbie agreed that it would be OK to share her Milk Bones with another dog.

(ok, be honest, Abbie didn’t have any choice in the matter).

Here’s Abbie.


Here’s a picture of the doggie basket Abbie and I shared!

We ended up with VERY HAPPY un-starving ASU students,

a very happy aunt

and 3 very happy dogs!

What kind of goodie basket would you like for us to design and deliver for you?

Back to School with Basket Express and Roadrunner Florist

Welcome Them Back to School with Gift Baskets and Flowers

from Basket Express and Roadrunner Florist

It’s that time of year: Back to School!

Students of all ages, from pre-school to college, are returning to the Halls of Education for another year of instruction.

We LOVE designing Back to School gift baskets and flowers! Why?

Because Back to School with Basket Express and Roadrunner Florist means custom designed, age appropriate Back to School Baskets and beautiful Back to School Floral Arrangements.

Small children would love crayons, a coloring book, large pencils and erasers, large print books and puzzles. We design age appropriate gift baskets that are perfect for your little one!

Is the student going into the primary grades?

age approp back to school medium

School necessities such as crayons, pencils, scissors, writing books, post-it-notes and more! Tell us the age and we’ll design a basket that’s perfect!

Is the student in middle school?

<img src="image.gif" alt="Older back to school basket" />

Maybe a few snacks would be appreciated, along with the school goodies. What a great idea!!

High school and college students might prefer flowers. Or a beautiful green plant.

<img src="image.gif" alt="Back to school" />  <img src="image.gif" alt="Plants" />

Whatever the grade, we can custom design and deliver the perfect Back to School Gift Basket or Floral Arrangement for you.

Do you know a great teacher? The person who is SO VALUABLE that he or she is going to spend the next 9 months teaching your favorite student. Send a fruit basket to that teacher (don’t worry, it’s share-able) as the school year starts as a special “thank you” !

<img src="image.gif" alt="Fruit basket" />

Of course you shouldn’t forget the office and administration staff. They’re the people who make the school run like clock-work! These are the smiles of a principal and school administrator as they accept flowers from Roadrunner Florist for a job well done!

<img src="image.gif" alt="School Flowers" />

Many students are starting school now.  Today is the day to call  602-246-1271 and tell us the age of the lucky student, teacher, principal or office staff and we’ll do the rest!

Roadrunner Florist & Basket Express, the place to come for fresh flowers & gift baskets in Phoenix, AZ

Meet David

<img src="image.gif" alt="This is David Sandoval" />

David came into our shop to buy 2 dozen beautiful roses for his wife. Here he, carrying them out of the shop! He looks like one happy guy!

Meet Omar

<img src="image.gif" alt="Omar with Candle" />


Omar’s story is very interesting. I was at the shop one Sunday designing flowers for a funeral. The door was locked but the lights were on. Omar and his family came to the door and he was carrying the largest candle I had ever seen! They had pictures to show me, and although none of them spoke English, I managed to figure out that they wanted flowers to surround this candle for a baptism. We agreed on red and white roses, lots and lots of baby’s breath, and an hour of my time.

When Omar picked up the candle he was one happy uncle!

Prom season is over in Phoenix! These 2 ladies loved the corsages we designed for them.

We love it when other florists drop by! This one is from Beaverton Florist in Oregon.

Meet Norman and Robbie

They came into our shop after enjoying a lunch at the restaurant next door. He purchased one rose, which Pamela wrapped with greens and baby’s breath, and I handed it to him. He then handed it to her! That was one of the nicest gestures I’ve seen in a long time!

This is Marthanna

For their wedding anniversary, her husband ordered these beautiful pink roses. He was kind enough to send us this picture of Marthanna standing in front of them at her home.

Summertime Flowers

Summertime Flowers

It’s summertime! That means things HEAT up in the desert! That means it’s time to order bright cheerful summertime flowers from Roadrunner Florist & Basket Express!

My dad teases that the temperatures cool down to the 90s at night (of course he’s right).

We find it’s easier to get out and enjoy the mornings, do our work, and plan on a siesta in the afternoon! (Oh, wouldn’t it be nice if everyone could take a siesta in the afternoon!)

People seem to want to send “bright” “cheerful” and “colorful” flowers in the summer. Who can blame them?

Here are a few examples of bright cheerful summertime flowers designed and delivered by Roadrunner Florist.

When you order flowers from Roadrunner Florist, including bright cheerful summertime flowers, you can be assured they will be the freshest flowers available, professionally designed and hand delivered for you.

<img src="image.gif" alt="Summertime cube of bright flowers" /> <img src="image.gif" alt="Summertime cube of flowers" />

Our flowers arrive daily from local wholesalers, and we process them immediately and place them into our coolers. We know the value of keeping our flowers fresh, and we insure they are protected from the heat at all times. They are never left at a front door or on a porch when we deliver them, and they are always designed in a vase or basket that holds water.

Because each arrangement is custom designed, as can offer unique designs such as these. This one was to commemorate 3 young men: 3 Bird of Paradise, 3 Pincushion Protea, 3 Ti Leaves and 3 King Protea.

<img src="image.gif" alt="Three Different Tropical Flowers" />

We often send green plants in the summer. They, too, can be bright cheerful summertime flowers. Here are a few examples of our summertime plants.

Pamela chooses the prettiest green plants available, and then dresses them up in style with different flowers, ribbons and bows. The plants are hearty, easy to maintain and grow, and the flowers never need watering. Sending a green plant from our large selection is always a great gift idea for a baby, a birthday, a congratulations, a housewarming or an express of sympathy.

Here are some more pretty flowers we’re designing and delivering for summer.

You can choose if you want the flowers designed in a basket or a vase.

Did I mention cookies?

We design and deliver Summertime Flowers AND gift baskets with cookies!

When you order your fresh flowers from Roadrunner Florist or your cookie basket from Basket Express, you know you are sending the freshest flowers available and delicious cookies in a custom-designed gift basket and delivered for you.

No matter how hot it gets this summer, remember to send bright cheerful summertime flowers (and gift baskets) from Roadrunner Florist and Basket Express!
