Scouring the streets of New York City for anything can be fun, especially when you have so many beautiful and amazing sights to look at as you walk. Going on a treasure hunt for gorgeous flowers, and finding the perfect ones to take back home, can be absolute heaven though.
We went searching for the best flower shops in NYC, so that you’ll know where to go if you need to pick up flowers for a dinner party, a gift, or your apartment. Maybe you’re staying in New York and could use some beauty in your hotel room? The florists we found can come through for you in that case too.
We’ve already talked about perhaps the most fun flower shop in New York. It’s Sycamore Bar and Flower Shop, and it’s a floral wonderland where you can relax with a drink before, during, or after your flower-shopping adventure. So today, we’re offering three more great flower shops in New York City that will also, undoubtedly, be fun but maybe in a different way. Enjoy your trip to the following fun florists in NYC:
People visit Banchet Flowers mostly for orchids, both plants and cut versions. This NYC flower shop carries a fantastic selection of unusual blooms, so head there to pick up Black Magic Vandas and other rare varieties. Banchet Flowers loves orchids so much that all of the arrangements the shop sells has at least one orchid in it, unless a customer specifically wants them left out. Banchet Flowers’ owner, Banchet Jaigla, specializes in creating modern arrangements with flowers sourced from far away places like Singapore, Holland, and Thailand. These special bouquets will cost you anywhere from $175 to $1,925.
When Barbara’s Flowers owner Tara Simone was a little girl, she would help her mother (a florist in Crown Heights) plant and prune flowers each day. She paid attention to her lessons and gained the experience needed to run her own flower shop in NYC. Today, Simone’s Barbara’s Flowers’ floral emporium is in Harlem and it provides many lush arrangements in a stunning brick-walled boutique. You can pick up simple bouquets of Dutch Hydrangeas at Barbara’s as well as more contemporary arrangements of fuchsia Dendrobium orchids. Barbara’s Flowers also sells a nice collection of gift items like candle holders and lotions.
