The best shops for online flowery delivery in Boston

Established in 1944, Winston Flowers began life as a floral pushcart in front of the original Ritz-Carlton hotel. Now, Winston Flowers delivers beautiful and rare blooms across the U.S., including to their Newbury storefront right here in Boston. The store updates its seasonal collections an impressive nine times per year and also offers gift crates, which include flowers alongside other treats, using fair-trade-certified suppliers. Although you can order online, we recommend stopping by to explore their regularly-changed arrangements and learning about the different bouquet styles from their expert florists.

As a full-service, luxury botanical design company, you can expect more than a standard vase when ordering through Orly Khon (though you can surely choose this option, if that’s what you seek). Founder Orly Khon’s background in graphic design and fine arts shines in her layered floral and plant compositions, which are completely customizable. All you need to do is provide your dream aesthetic and logistical details (like your budget and intended delivery date), then Khon works her magic, choosing from orchids and herbaceous plants to perfect your piece.

Though a national leader in direct-to-consumer plant services, The Sill recently landed on Newbury Street, opening their first-ever Boston location as a nod to the founder’s native Massachusetts roots. (Eliza Blank founded The Sill in 2012 and bootstrapped the company from the 200-square-feet of her apartment to the $10MM in annual revenue it produces today). Choose from their flower delivery services for bouquet kits, signature bouquets and live potted flowers, including petite orange orchids as well as full-sized white and watercolor purple orchids.

Bloom Couture Boston

Based on Tremont Street, in South End Boston, Bloom Couture creates and sends traditional bouquets as well as flora in vases. When visiting, don’t say we didn’t warn you: You’ll likely end up loving the arrangements so much, you’ll end up purchasing one for yourself in addition to whatever gift you’re ordering. If you’re not living closeby, search by flower type online, including their speciality offerings like the kokedama plantings (Japanese moss balls, very trendy). If you’re gifting on a budget, the blooms are also easily filtered by price online. Plus, you can get a standard, deluxe or premium version of many arrangements. Want to invent something extra special? Custom arrangements are available, so you can design the perfect gift.

UrbanStems

This national company is a favorite on the ’gram, practically going viral with its adorable planters, like golden giraffes and elephants housing air plants. Their flower delivery service is just as impressive, offering gorgeously arranged bouquets with names like the lily and rose-clad “The Carolina” and the eponymous “The Magnolia.” There are also rotating seasonal collections to keep your floral gifting as fresh as the flowers themselves.

This French florist specializes in delivering eco-friendly flowers quickly and reliably through their same-day delivery service. Of course, you can opt for an advance order, but let’s admit it, gifting flowers sometimes happens on a whim. And at Ode à la Rose, it’s like you’ve planned this gift weeks in advance, even when it’s a last minute arrangement. Every bouquet is hand-tied and then packaged in a stylish purple box with a single rose on top and sent out for delivery. The vase options are also pretty stunning here, so look into those—they'll keep for later!

The Bouqs Co.

Want to be sure that your blooms are coming from local, sustainable sources? Don't go past The Bouqs Co.—online florists with great eco credentials. We love their subscription offering, which is an ideal gift that keeps on giving; purchase an annual subscription and receive a fresh bouquet either weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or bi-monthly. Bouqs ensures that their flowers are all fresh, as they source blooms directly from farms, cutting out the middleman and the additional carbon footprint in the process. From there, every hand-tied bouquet is cut to order by artisan florists in your local area.

Floom

A business with cross-country kudos, Floom is an online marketplace. The flowers here all come from local independent florists, who use seasonal blooms and can also add a handwritten message. The company acts as the middleman and sources high-quality arrangements, meaning that options vary tremendously depending on the day and zip code, but the quality rarely wavers. You can build your own bouquet by flower variety or choose a pre-styled vase, but either way you can’t go wrong. Floom also offers same day delivery for certain orders, which solves any of your last minute gifting qualms.

This South End florist has been a local favorite since 2007, when Table & Tulip was established. Their bouquets come in various arrangements—from quaint bulb gardens with daffodils and pansies to elaborate bunches with everything from roses to orchids—and for various occasions, including every day and holiday collections. These pro florists are also well-loved for their custom wedding design, so if you're thinking of tying the knot, why not check out their gorgeous gallery? In addition to all manner of lovely flowers, you can buy gorgeous pre-potted plants here too. The pots, of course, are equally pretty.
