Fantastic food to send to others!, 1/14/2016

Recently, a friend sent me a Deluxe Dinner for 4 from "Instead of Flowers" to lend support to us since my husband was recovering from serious back surgery. What a treat this! The food was delicious... and there were generous portions....enough for 2 meals. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal. I could choose from their Deluxe menus and I selected a tasty meal of roast pork, cheese potato casserole, a delicious spinach salad and more! I highly recommend this business to anyone who wants to send a wonderful meal to someone special! Delightful!

Best in Town

I was grateful that several meals were given to us following my surgery. They have been delicious! The meals were delivered exactly when we had been told they would come. There was plenty of really good food - enough to have leftovers. The food was cooked perfectly and easy to heat up to serve. We will be using this service for others in the future.

Best gluten free dinners for new mom

just having our third child and being gluten free this is the BEST gluten free gift and the best menu. My kids aren't gluten free and I love that we received gluten free for me and regular for my kids and they are picky. I would recommend this business.

Outstanding!

ABSOLUTELY the BEST! I received a meal delivery yesterday from some very special friends. I was able to select from a multitude of mouth watering options that I must say, tasted as good as they looked in the photographs. The meal arrived in a very timely manner and was extremely well packaged. Not only were the heating instructions very clear and easy, but the food was among the best that I have eaten, even considering some of Atlanta's finest restaurants. This is a wonderful idea and I will definitely order from Instead of Flowers myself as a gesture of kindness and comfort for friends and family.

Wonderful Idea and Good Food

A friend sent me a meal from Instead of Flowers and not only was it a welcome gift, the food was terrific. They have several choices of entrees from which to choose. I chose the jumbo shrimp scampi and was delighted! It was more than enough for two people. The salad was fresh and crisp. The veggies were perfect. The rolls were homemade. The cheesecake was heavenly. The shrimp was great and the pasta was some of the best I've had. I will be ordering for myself in the near future as the price of the entree only is not much more than if I prepared it myself. Presentation was special - Each container was tied with little ribbons and all was delivered to my front door in a quilted tote bag worthy of future use. Highly recommended!

Recuperating from Surgery

I received this wonderful gift from my co-workers while home recuperating from surgery. After reviewing all the choices I selected my option and it was delivered right on time. What a brilliant idea. It was absolutely delicious! I can't wait to "pay it forward" by selecting Instead of Flowers for my next gift choice for friends and family. Thank you again for a delicious meal.

Amazing gift and a wonderful meal!

A sweet friend sent my family a gift from Instead of Flowers when we were going through a difficult time. I received a phone call from Anna at Instead of Flowers letting me know of the gift and that I could check out the menu online and get back to her on what I'd like to order. The menus look fantastic, and ordering a meal for my family was very easy to do. The meal was delivered the next day on time, and it was incredible! Superb quality of food, packaging tied up with ribbons, and a beautiful cooler made this feel like a true gift. It was truly the perfect gift and just what we needed at that time. With busy lives, children, and families, it is often difficult to coordinate meals or other supportive gifts that you'd like to send to your friends during their challenging times in life. Yet, Instead of Flowers made it so easy to receive love and support without any inconvenience to anyone. I plan to use them again for my own family and friends in the future during their times of need or perhaps just for a delicious meal delivered! Thank you to all at Instead of Flowers!

Comfort food for the soul

Instead of flowers was sent by close friends when my husband's dad passed away. The food was delivered on time and was delicious. We had plenty for everyone with enough for seconds. The generosity of friends coupled with a yummy meal brought us much comfort! Thank you, Instead of Flowers!

Love This Alternative to Flowers

Had surgery on my dominant hand recently and my husband was having to do all cooking and cleanup for weeks. Dear friends sent us a meal from Instead of Flowers. What a Godsend! The meal was extraordinary, delivered when we wanted, and we chose what we wanted. The perfect gift. We recommend Jumbo Shrimp Scampi - included salad to dessert. Instead of having to take care of flowers and me my husband got a break too. I highly recommend this as an alternative to flowers for every occasion.
