Make someone’s day {or even your own} with a stunning arrangement from this little shop. The service is super friendly and accommodating for delivery {Editor’s note: the owner actually called me to coordinate when I’d be home for a flower delivery from my in-laws — and when he knew I wouldn’t be home from work until 7:30 that day, he waited and personally delivered it to my apartment. So nice!}.

Besides his creative centerpieces and tablescapes, he also creates beautiful arrangements for homes and apartments. If succulent arrangements are what you’re after, this is your spot. William will custom-design anything under the sun for you {and, event planner EVJ Wedding Co raves about him!}. Sometimes he also opens his shop for sales, where you can walk by and purchase some plants for your apartment.

    Flowers by Diane {109 2nd Street}

    Flowers by Diane arranges and delivers beautiful, fresh flowers {and gift baskets} for any occasion. Tell the florist your budget and flowers you’re interested in, and they’ll put together arrangements {most likely in the same day if needed} for delivery. BUT, if you’re looking to walk in and take a look at the flowers available — you’ll be disappointed; there are no arrangements that are ready-made for pickup. You have to order! No big deal, unless you’re a spontaneous flower-buyer {ah-hem… men, we’re talking to you}.

    Fresh Picked {1014 Washington Street}

    Fun fact: on Valentine’s Day, this shop is a place that you will want to people watch. Men, everywhere, picking out flowers with lines out the door! It’s a sight to see, that’s for sure. Fresh Picked is a family owned shop offering not only the most beautiful variety of cut flowers, but fruits and veggies, too! The shop doubles as a convenience store, and it actually has extremely fresh produce {in fact, some people go there to buy it versus other chain grocery stores!}.

    So, while we’re waiting for the super warm temps — hopefully some of these flower shops will keep you in the springtime mood.
