This local florist and gift shop specializes in custom arrangements and flower subscription programs (both fresh and dried). 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. The Bird Road Arts District storefront stocks a fresh stem bar weekly for DIY arrangements as well as locally made wares and thoughtful trinkets for easy gifting.
Birthdays, anniversaries, big career moves, apologies – all great occasions for which to buy flowers. None of them, however, have quite the bloom appeal as Valentine's Day, especially when you couple that bouquet with a rich box of chocolates and a decadent Valentine's Day dinner. Miami has always had florists sprouting up in every corner and lately their creativity has been at peak bloom. Whether you're in the dog house and need a last-minute delivery or you want to gift an artful arrangement to someone you love – including yourself – you’ll find more than one way to treat yourself at these shops, from flower subscriptions to small trinkets from local vendors. Thoughtful as flowers may be, remember, cozying up at a romantic restaurant in Miami or even a Miami-inspired date also go a long way.
