Dear  Hilltop Florist Staff,

You are awesome!! I live out of state and have been ordering deliveries from you for years; birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Recently, a friend of mine passed away and I was unable to attend the memorial. I called Hilltop for an order and tried to convey what a unique man my friend was and how I'd love to have an arrangement to match. I wish I could remember the name of the young woman who helped me, because I swear she read my mind. She created a wild, fantastic and definitely unique cactus arrangement. It was perfect--all those at the memorial said so! This was by no means the first time you, Hilltop staff, have been able to beautifully interpret my requests. Your skill, care and attention to detail are greatly appreciated. Thanks Hilltop!


Nicole Gruter


Thank you!!! Every time I order from Hilltop (over many, many years) I am completely happy!

I just got off the phone with Sara! I wanted to let you know that was by far the best customer service I have had in a very long time. Kudos to her!!

Thank you,

Stacy Klepsa



I apologize for the delay in conveying my deepest thanks to you for all you did to make Mackenzie and Alex's special wedding day wonderful. You exceeded and delivered on all commitments and were professional and pleasant to work with. We could have not done it without you! We received so many compliments on the flowers and the large centerpiece. Everything you did was perfect. I so enjoyed meeting with you and working with you on this important day in our lives.

Thanks so much,

Betty Jones

 Best service in town!

 Hilltop Florist always knows exactly what we should put in the planters at our office! Can't wait to see what we decide upon this spring.

Dear Kathy,

We were very touched to hear from many folks who attended Jim Bruce's funeral that you designed an exceptionally lovely floral arrangement for us. This means so much to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Your friends,

Polly and Tom Frank

Hilltop Florist and Sarah,

You were all amazing! We know we made the right choice in florists! We will recommend you to everyone we know!


Thank you for all the work and time you put in with us! All the tough decisions and back and forth was rough but you guided us ( Good call on the all white bouquet)! The girls flowers were grogeous and Corey's "crazy" flower was perfect. Thank you for being a big part of our day. Everything was perfect!!


Lisa and Corey Petersen

 Dear Staff of Hilltop Florist and Greenhouse,

Thank you for the absolutely amazing job you did with our bouquet for Zak Abdo's memorial. I know I didn't give you many (actually, I didn't give you any...) specifics about what we wanted but what you created was truly touching. My sister, one of Zak's best friends told me that she was doing okay at the visitiation until she saw the Movies 8 bouquet with all our extra additions. I must say the same thing happened to me and a lot of other people I know. So once again, thank you so much for all of your help and for taking an extremely non-specific request and turning it into something extraordinarily beautiful and moving.

Dear Sarah,

Thank you so so much for the beautiful flowers. My bouquet was PERFECT!! It looked like it was a perfect match for the bridesmaids bouquets that I had made. Thank you so much for your time and keen eye. Keep up with what you are doing.

This has been beyond amazing to work with you and your staff! You've been incredible and I feel like we're part of the Hilltop Family! It was the perfect opportunity for me to bond with my mom, Kim, Cousin and Aunt. Special memories I won't forget.

Just had to say thank you for growing such beautiful Roses. A friend of mine stopped in and brought me one to cheer me up. It is opening and put a smile on my face.

It never fails at Hilltop, you get what you pay for, guaranteed! It is as fresh as if you cut it yourself!

Hi Sarah,

We are back from Minnesota and I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did on the bride's bouquet. It was beautiful and the bride was really pleased. According to the bride, the photographers were also raving about how gorgeous the bouquet was. Thanks again, you really did a fantastic job!

Thank you,

Libby Hoyer-Booth


I just want to say thank you for doing such a beautiful job on the flower arrangements. I loved the bouquets, they were so pretty and I got so many compliments on them. Also, thank you for all your help leading up to the day of the wedding.


Brittany Baumgartner

I ordered flowers for a friend today and I asked for something cheerful and you really came through. The arrangement is beautiful and exactly what I was picturing as cheerful. Your floral designers are brillant. Thank you for a beautiful bouquet delivered to a friend who was very sad today.


Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did to provide my family this opportunity. You laughed and gave not only encouragement, but the level of professionalism far exceeds any other I have experienced in providing beautiful arrangements for all occasions especially for my parents' memorial services. May you be blessed as you have blessed us. :)

I would like to thank you again for helping me put together a very nice bouquet of flowers for our parent's 50th wedding anniversary. They were a big hit. The display was amazing. My parents as well as my other siblings were blown away by it. So again thank you very much for that. I'm not sure I would have been able to put something like that together by myself. Those employees that work with you, I thank them as well for helping me when you were not available at the time. I appreciate it very much.


Hi Sarah,

Our wedding was beautiful and so were the beautiful flowers!!!

Thank you!

Gale and Dan



Thank you so much for putting together such amazing flower arrangements for our wedding!  They were above and beyond what we had expected. :)

Hi Kathy, 
 Thank you again for doing such a stunning job. It was a pleasure working with you as well. I was so thrilled with how absolutely beautiful everything was. And, I received many compliments on the flowers and greenery and many friends said it was truly "my taste". So, thank you for really doing a fabulous job of bringing my dreams to reality on my wedding day! I was blown away with how perfect everything looked and it exceeded my vision. 

Hi Kathy! 
Thank you so much for the lovely note and thinking of us. Patrick and I had an over the top incredible day. The weather was absolutely gorgeous! 
I wish I had seen you at Loyola, but we got there a few minutes late. I want you to know I cried when I saw my bouquet - it was a dream come true!!

The guys' and gals' arrangements were stunning as well. Patrick absolutely loved his boutonniere and said I nailed it...Thank you so much! I think I can speak for both my mother and I, that it was such a pleasure working with you. 

 Thank you and take care!

Hi Ruth!

I just wanted to say thank you for all you did for our wedding! The flowers were perfect...I absolutely loved my bouquet and so many people have asked who did my flowers. It made the whole day so beautiful to say the least. I could not have asked for a better florist to help make my ideas into the most wonderful reality. Thank you.



The flowers for my wedding were amazing! My bouquet made me and my mom tear up just looking at it--so beautiful!

Thank you for all of your help!

We seriously had the best day ever!

Take care,


Hi Sarah! 

The flowers were absolutely GORGEOUS! ! You did a beautiful job and I would recommend you and Hilltop to anyone. I want you to know that I was so happy with them! I had such a great experience working with you! You understood my vision perfectly and brought it to life! Thank you so much for your hard work and for making the way to New Ulm to deliver it all. I wish the very best for you! Keep on creating beauty. :)


Emily (and Michael too!)


Thank you sooo much! It was even more beautiful than I could have imagined! The flowers were sooo beautiful! You are amazing!



The flowers were phenomenal! I am so happy with every single detail. Thank you so much! And my bouquet?!? Just awesome! I held it throughout pretty much the entire ceremony and I didn't plan to hold it much at all before I saw it! . You do great work, Sarah! And it was so nice working with you too! Thanks again, take care!

Beth Gorres


My bridal bouquet along with all of the flowers for my wedding were absolutely stunning!!! They couldn't have accomplished my vision with anymore perfection!! Great work!! Thank you so much Ruth!!!

Sarah was absolutely wonderful to work with on the floral arrangements and bouquets for my wedding! She was very organized and made me feel reassured that everything would turn out wonderful and exactly as I dreamed it.

Please pass along a huge thank you to the designer who created this unique custom design for my mother's birthday. She LOVED it and so did her neighbor who wanted to keep it.

You guys are the best florist in the Mankato area!

Thank you,



Thank you so much for arranging the beautiful flowers for the memorial service today. They exceeded my hopes for the occasion. Many people commented to me how beautiful they thought they were. Your thoughtfulness at this difficult time is greatly appreciated.




They (wedding flowers) were so lovely!! Everything was perfect and exactly what I envisioned!! Thank you SO much!!

Thanks again, your work is OUTSTANDING!!!



Thank you so much for the awesome job you did with our flowers. They were everything I wanted and more. We recieved many great compliments on them- of course I said Sarah at Hilltop did them!



The (wedding) flowers were absolutely gorgeous! Everyone loved them. The colors were perfect. Thank you again for all of your help!


Hilltop Florist, (Sarah)

Passed through Mankato brought back "old times" Holiday Season 1968 Marguerite hired my wife who was 8 months pregnant to work part time. She worked with LaDonna for over a month. I would drop her off and attend school. Lived out on 3rd Ave. We never had a pot to pee in. My wife had no boots and lots of snow that winter. Marguerite noticed that and bought her a nice pair of boots! We never forgot it!! Glad the business is still in the family.

I would highly recommend working with Hilltop Florist, they are a very responsive team and work to make the customer experience the best!

I love it (the arrangement)!!!

You have more than exceeded any image and/or expectations!!! WOW!!!

THANK YOU!!!! :-)

Ken O'Brien


Thank you so so much! I absolutely LOVED LOVED the flowers!!! They were above and beyond my wildest dreams!!!

Thank you so much again! They were so incredibly beautiful!


Just placed a small order with Sarah for a delivery today to our daughter at her job. Sarah was absolutely wonderful, was very willing to chat with an old man from Calif. We have been to Mankato many times and Sarah represents the best example of the difference between very friendly and nice people in Mankato and most of the people in Calif. Keep her and give her a raise. Thank you, and we will be using you folks again. Keep up the good work!!!!

Best wishes from California


I absolutely loved the (wedding) flowers! I am trying to figure out a way to preserve them because they are so beautiful. Thank you again for everything, they turned out so amazing.


Hello Sarah,

We absolutely LOVED the flowers! We got so many compliments on them, you did such and amazing job! :) Everything was perfect, wish we could relive it!

Thank you so much,



The flowers were absolutely amazing, they really made everything come together. They did not wilt and stayed very fresh looking the entire wedding despite the wamer temperatures. I think my favorite ones were the flowers that went around the barrels. After the wedding, I had nearly everyone at the wedding asking me if they could take some home. Some of the children took the Roses and made dye out of their petals.

Thank you so much for making them look amazing.



Everything about your flowers were perfect beyond belief! I couldn't have pictured it any prettier. I cannot thank you enough for contributing to our special day in such a wonderful way! I just don't think words can do it justice but I'm so grateful for your hard work and beautiful flowers.

Thank you so much!

Sarah Kate


We used Hilltop Florist for our wedding. Sarah was great to work with and provided a lot of assistance to a Bride who does not know much about flowers! The bouquets turned out great and the flowers were beautiful. The staff was professional and courteous. 


The flowers were amazing!  We had so many compliments on them. Everything was perfect!!

Thank you for doing our flowers.

Kathie and Gabe

Hi Sarah, 

The flowers were AMAZING and perfect! Thank you so much! Thank you for the gift too, that was very thoughtful. I will also be leaving a really good review everywhere I can soon!

Thanks again,


Sarah (floral department), my nieces (who lost their friends) sent me a photo of the arrangement I ordered  from Hilltop. It was outstanding and beautiful. I just wanted to thank you for your patience and your great listening skills as I explained to you what I wanted in the arrangement. I really appreciate your assistance during this difficult time.
