Few things brighten up a room—or someone’s mood—quite like a bouquet. Finding the perfect arrangement is easy when you have the best flower shops in Miami to guide you. These local businesses are our tried-and-true go-tos for thoughtful gifts, from simple vases filled with fresh blooms to over-the-top creations to commemorate a special anniversary to a treat-yourself subscription that guarantees your home is always filled with the flowers you love. Most of these shops have storefronts you can browse and all of them deliver (ideal when clicking the ‘buy’ button is the only shopping you’re interested in). Flowers are great but, remember, dinner at a romantic restaurant in Miami or even a Miami-inspired date also goes a long way.

After working at several prominent Miami arts organizations, including ICA Miami, de la Cruz Collection and EXILE Books, Sara Darling opened Rose Coloured in 2016 with a mission to bring, she says, “a fresh, elevated aesthetic” to the local floral and event scenes. Her Little River storefront doubles as a platform for education and community building as well as artist collaborations, “connecting flower arranging with various art practices.” Special events like a Small Business Saturday pop-up shop and in-store workshops on pottery-making and styling your holiday table add to the bespoke feel of the Rose Coloured brand.

This local florist and gift shop specializes in custom arrangements and flower subscription programs (both fresh and dried). House of Lilac also sells assorted gifts out of its adorable Bird Road Arts District storefront. Owner Melanie Fernandez sources the best of what’s in season for her bouquets, including funky buds you won’t find at most florists—think quicksand roses and colorful dahlias. Organic, effortless and whimsical, the final piece should feel like it naturally sprung up from the ground,” she says.

After hustling in the NYC magazine industry for six years, Miami native Elizabeth Jaime moved back home and began “playing with flowers,” she says. That hobby quickly led to paying work with trendy brands like Glossier, Simonett and other clients who covet, as Jaime describes it, “design and the impact that fresh flowers can have in your space.” When building one of her “colorful, trendy and tropical-ish” arrangements, Jaime allows color and composition to drive the design. “I like to treat each arrangement as if it’s a sculpture made out of flowers. That way, the client feels like they’re taking home something really special.”

Ava bills itself as the place to buy high-quality flowers on the cheap. Quality and price shouldn’t be mutually exclusive, and they’re not on this site. Avas even sweetens the deal with regular sales and the occasional free shipping.
