Home Decor


Our home decor department is unlike any other - we offer a wide variety of seasonal and year round products sure to suit your every need.


That's right! We offer gourmet dinners that can be delivered just about anywhere in the US. We can even have LIVE lobster delivered right to your (or your special recipient's) home! And they're very much alive when they arrive... we know! We like them so much, we've had them ourselves!
In addition to live lobster, we can also have many different types of lobster tails delivered, such as Main lobster tails, Brazilian lobster tails, North Australian lobster tails, South African lobster tails, Tristan lobster tails, and West Australian lobster tails!

We also have a wide variety of other gourmet dinners to choose from... Filet Mignon steak dinners, Surf & Turf dinners (filet & lobster!), fresh hardshell Clams & Mussels, Snow Crab Claws, Jumbo Cooked Shrimp, King Crab, Littleneck Clams, and New York Strip Steak! Some combination meals even include delicious New England Clam Chowder, Manhattan Clam Chowder, Maryland Crab Cakes, White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake, Keylime Cheesecake, New York Cheesecake, Chocolate Lava Cake, and Columbian Supremo Coffee!

Of course, each dinner also comes with all necessary cooking utensils and extras, such as butter, a cooking manual, oyster crackers, reusable ceramic on steel cooking pots, ceramic butter warmers, candles, candle holders, fresh whole lemon, shell crackers, cocktail sauce, new potatoes, sweet corn, seafood forks, bibs and moist towelettes. I don't think it gets much better than that!

Gourmet Desserts

In addition to gourmet dinners, we also offer some of the most delicious gourmet desserts around! And they can be delivered anywhere in the country!

Our fresh baked cookies come in so many varieties, we don't even know where to start! From the classics like chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, toffee, and more, to novelty gourmet cookie baskets for all kinds of different occasions, like welcoming a new baby to the family, congratulating the new parents, anniversary gifts, birthday baskets, and much more!

Some of our most popular gourmet desserts are our delicious gourmet Cheesecakes. Every flavor you can imagine... white chocolate raspberry, lemon biscotti, chocolate caramel kiss, key lime, marionberry, strawberry swirl, and our most popular - samplers! We currently offer the tropical sampler, gourmet sampler, and the extremely berry sampler.

Can't have sugar? No problem! We also offer "no sugar added" cheesecakes in blueberry swirl, chocolate swirl, pumpkin swirl, and new york style.

Last but not least of our gourmet desserts, we have an entire category full of decadent cakes! Caramel nut tart, black velvet cake, chocolate chip lemon cake, Georgian peanut butter mousse, lemon cake, lemon chiffon, mocha cake, a real, traditional Happy Birthday cake (!!), and white chocolate mint truffle torte cakes are just some of our many offerings.

Gourmet & Gift Baskets


This category of our site is so exciting, and filled with gourmet and gift baskets for just about every occasion you can think of! Spa and aromatherapy gift baskets, a "truckload of treats" for that special man in your life, a "Best Bet" gift set for that poker or card playing fanatic, breakfast baskets, popcorn tins, chocolate decadence baskets for the chocoholic in all of us, coffee sets, birthday baskets, house warming gift baskets, golf gift sets, kids baskets, "movie night" baskets, snack baskets, and much, much more!

As you can see, as far as products go, no local florist offers more. But at Marco Island Florist, we don't just stop at premium quality products and gifts... we like to take things one step further.

Visit our state of the art website to see some of the customer and community programs we have and support. We're more than just a florist!

Some of our member services (membership is FREE!) include express checkout, an address book so you only have to enter your recipient's address (as well as your own information) once, occasion reminders which notify you when a birthday or anniversary is coming up, special promotions and offers via email and regular mail, order history, automatic contest registration for our monthly Dozen Roses drawing, and upon registering, you'll receive 25 FREE reward points!

Which brings me to my next feature.... Petal Rewards! This program is exclusive to us in the Marco Island/Naples, Florida area. For every dollar you spend, you earn Points! Accumulate points and redeem them for cash savings off future orders, name-brand merchandise, or to donate to the charity of your choice! Keep an eye out for our upcoming Reward Points blog for more detailed information about this special program.

Lucky Stems - This program has been a customer favorite for years. Every delivery that leaves our store (with the exception of weddings and sympathy/funerals of course) has a "Lucky Stem" card attached to the bouquet. A Lucky Stem card has a unique number that the recipient can enter into our website to win a variety of prizes! And, even if they don't win, they wil be entered into our monthly Dozen Roses drawing! So, the chances to win are higher than normal.

And the prizes are top of the line... Win prizes from Marco Island Florist, such as a free floral bouquet, a gift card from Marco Island Clothing Company, two tickets to Capt. Brien's Off The Hook Comedy club, a sightseeing cruise for two on the Marco Island Princess yacht, a gift certificate to the Sand Bar, and a FREE sub at Subway! So, by sending someone a special gift from Marco Island Florist, you're also sending them a chance to win an awesome prize!

Growing Together - We will have more information about this program in a future blog; however, I will take a moment to explain the basics. At Marco Island Florist, we believe not only in being a part of the community, but giving back to the community as well. That's why we've developed our Growing Together program.



Any customer that places an order on our site has the option of choosing a school, church, or other non-profit organization for Marco Island Florist to donate to! That's right, we will donate 2% of your order to the participating organization of your choice.
