The best flower delivery in Houston
Already brightening lives in New York, Chicago and LA, Floom will soon be launching in Houston. This innovative online service sources blooms from the best local florists in the area to bring customers unique bouquets to suit every budget. What's more, you qualify for free delivery with your first order.
Having opened in Houston in 1943, Breen's now operates out of four shops: two in Houston, as well as Pasadena and Spring. With so many successful years behind them, they're clearly doing something right. Now run by a second generation of Breens, they offer a wealth of experince in the floral field and have great ideas about arrangements for all occasions. They provide same-day delivery to a wide area too.
Blomma is somewhat a local favorite amongst the northwest Houston residents. Owner Kim personally designs and pieces together stunning arrangements to suit any occasion. Her commitment and accommodating nature also means that if a certain anniversary has slipped your mind, you can order last-minute and get same-day delivery, or even place a late-night order for morning local delivery.
With a name like Lush Flowers, you'd expct something a little luxurious – and you'd be right. Run by Rene Johnson, Lush promises to add the personal touch to your beautiful bouquets, gift baskets and lasting plants. Choose your blooms online or in the shop on Clear Lake City Blvd and have them hand-delivered to one of the many areas served (check their website to find out exactly where).
Owned and run by the Nobles family, Heights has been providing the good folk of Houston with bright blooms since 1958. You may well know the shop, too, as they've been in their same location since opening. They can do everything from tropical to traditional designs, with flowers shipped in from all over the world, as well as a few inventive arrangements.
Another family-run joint – this time on Fairview. The folks at Killion's have a bright, airy and characterful shop, from which they create arrangements by occasion or by budget, the latter of which is particularly useful. Order before noon and you can have your creation in hand the same day.
If you're not fussed about using a massive company, then the savings you can make with ProFlowers come in very handy. They can go towards, for instance, customising the type of vase used or to add chocolates to your order. PF sources the flora directly from the growers, so you can easily get fresh, local produce. And if you're looking to save a few extra cents without lessening the impact, opt for their "fresh picks", which provides a lovely surprise for as little as $19.99. All blooms are delivered in an eco-friendly gift box.
If you want something that'll wow, but you don't know your poppies from your peonies, The Bouqs Co is a good place to start. They offer ready-made sumptuous bunches bursting with colour. It's a nationwide company, but your order will arrive hand-delivered courtesy of a local florist.
Fairly new on the Houston flower scene – compared to the other family businesses – is It's Just For You. Opened in 2007 on Forest Cedars Drive, these guys provide daily flower delivery for birthdays, anniversaries, special events or just because (which has its own section on their website). There's an extensive online gallery to browse, but ordering must be done via the phone or the contact form. Do check online before ordering, though, as there are money-off coupons available.
Get pretty little posies from this Richmond Avenue shop, which may not be a looker from the sidewalk, but does the trick inside. They have a huge selection of containers, so you can order your goodies in a basket, bowl, ceramics, box, tiny wheelbarrow… You name it, they probably stock it. For that extra bit of inspiration, take a look at the "florist's choice daily deal". Simply choose between standard, deluxe or premium and the florist will piece together a stunning selection of the day's freshest blooms.
