Flower Delivery in Boston

1. Ode à la Rose

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 with plenty of time 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!

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.

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

This national company is a favorite on the ’gram, practically going viral with its adorable planters, like golden giraffes and elephants housing air plants. The florist's delivery service in Boston is just as impressive, offering gorgeously arranged bouquets with names like “The Heartfelt” with a spectrum of roses, mini calla lilies and ruscus. Or maybe you're leaning more towards the Bridgeton-inspired “The Burning Romance”? There are also rotating seasonal collections to keep your floral gifting as fresh as the flowers themselves.

5. The Bouqs Co.

Want to be sure that your blooms are coming from local, sustainable sources? Then you can't miss out on The Bouqs Co., the online florists with great eco-credentials. We love the 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 the flowers are all fresh, as it sources 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.

6. Bloom Couture Boston

Based on Tremont Street, in South End Boston, Bloom Couture creates and sends traditional bouquets as well as flora in vases. If you’re not living close by, search by flower type online, including their specialty offerings like the kokedama plantings (Japanese moss balls, very chic). 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 orders are available, so you can design the perfect gift.

7. Table and Tulip

This South End florist has been a local favorite since 2007 when Table & Tulip was established. The bouquets come in various arrangements, from quaint bulb gardens with daffodils and pansies to elaborate bunches with everything from roses to orchids, so make sure you try them out for your Valentine's Day gifting. And for long-term couples? These pro florists are also well-loved for their custom wedding design, so if you're thinking of tying the knot, 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.

Founded on the principle that gifting is emotional, Fresh Sends adds a personal touch to their flower delivery services. Their website offers an array of fresh gifts, but their hand-picked bouquet of flowers is their specialty. While you don’t get to pick the exact ingredients of the arrangement, you can find peace in the fact you are leaving this up to the experts. The flowers are just one part of the gift, the packaging that the bouquet ships in doubles as a note card and completes the Fresh Sends experience. If you are looking for a modern and personalized gift of flowers to send this season, this is your best bet.

This downtown florist certainly lives up to its identity as “a small shop but big in quality and warmth.” If you’re local, look for the turquoise corner door on Stuart Street to browse the in-store offerings or order online from a curated list of bouquets. We think it’s the individual touches that make this florist unique; each bouquet is wrapped in silk paper and hand-tied with another, smaller bouquet outside of it. If you're a coupe taking things to the next level? This place also caters for weddings (from table decor to bridesmaid bouquets), if you're looking for an extra, extra special surprise. 

If you are someone who doesn’t like to skip out on the details but don’t have time to head to a local florist shop yourself, you and Teleflora are the perfect match. An international delivery service that partners with smaller shops, Teleflora delivers a unique bouquet of flowers to each of its recipients. If you are nervous about ordering online, Teleflora’s 81 years of experience should help ease your mind. If you identify as a procrastinator, this last part is for you. If you get your order in before 2pm during the week and before 12pm on the weekends, Teleflora will deliver the bouquet of flowers later that same day! Crisis averted.

Rouvalis has been providing flowers to the people of Greater Boston for over 45 years, as well as offering various-shaped vases that make a floral delivery all the more special. Choose from seasonal blooms that let you enjoy a new arrangement each quarter, or from the signature collection, which is available year-round.

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). The founder'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. It's perfect for a luxury bespoke gift for someone special.

Though a national leader in direct-to-consumer plant services, The Sill opened their first-ever Boston location on Newbury Street in November 2021 as a nod to the founder’s native Massachusetts roots. Created by Eliza Blank in 2012, it started in her apartment before growing into a multi-million dollar venture. Browse the 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. You'll get so much more than just your average bouquet.
