Of all the gifts you can give someone in springtime, a fresh bouquet of flowers may be the one most people would be thrilled to receive. Springtime is the ideal moment to send or receive fresh flowers in anticipation of the summertime bounty to come. Metro Detroit has some of the most creative florists and floral artists in the state, so there are many places to work with to find something special.
Whether you’re looking for Easter flowers or a dozen long-stem roses for a special occasion, these florists are ready to take your order and create something dazzling. Their job is to translate your sentiment into a floral display that tells the story of what you’re hoping to communicate, whether it is for an anniversary or a family brunch get-together.
Most florists are willing to work with you to come up with a design if you have certain flowers you want to use. If you want to give them a suggestion, they’re ready to jump on the rest of the arrangement. Others will have arrangements already prepared in their stores or can put some together quickly if you need them that day.
Often, it is best to order at least three to four days in advance. Shipping or delivery typically has a cost in addition to the flowers. If you want to add a vase or another gift, many florists have those available for a charge. Make sure you know all of the costs up front and are ready to have the address of the recipient available when you call or show up.
