Visit these florists for that order of beautiful blooms!
When special occasions come around, you might be scrambling to find a trusty florist that can get you gorgeous long-stemmed roses or that bright assorted bouquet. Sassy’s got you covered with this list of flower shops and florists that can get you your much-needed floral arrangement, perhaps for Mom this Mother’s Day?
1. Blooms and Foliage Inspirations
You’ve probably already seen this quaint little shop in the heart of Quezon City when you tried to avoid the EDSA traffic. Blooms and Foliage Inspirations is the go-to flower shop of those living in the Scout area. They give you the convenience of enjoying the smell of fresh flowers secluded in an air-conditioned space. And apart from the usual bouquets, they also specialize in flower arrangements in vases.
Blooms and Foliage Inspirations, 123 Scout Gandia corner Sgt. Torillo, Quezon City, Metro Manila, 02 410 6131
2. Mga Bulaklak Atbp.
This is one of the oldest flower shops that I know of and is also probably the most convenient one to go to. They usually have a lot of blooms to choose from, but their Mother’s Day special limits their flowers to a smaller variety of best-sellers to preserve their quality and freshness.
Mga Bulaklak Atbp., 35 Wilson St., San Juan, Metro Manila, 02 584 2352
3. Te Amo Floristeria Manila
Located right in the middle of Bonifacio Global City, Te Amo Floristeria gives you the feel of a New York boutique. It has two floors: one where you can course through their catalog and week’s displays, and another where you can find their supply of freshly-delivered flowers. There’s also an area where they hold workshops for creating flower arrangements in a box or in a terrarium.
Te Amo Floristeria Manila, G/F Active Fun Building, 28th Ave. corner 9th Ave., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila, 0916 629 8122, www.teamoflowers.com
4. Mabolo Flowers
The moment I stepped inside Mabolo Flowers, I realized why they are on top of so many lists! The shop smells of blossoms that complement each other, with flowers occupying almost every square inch—on the floor and on the countertops. The dimmed lights accentuate all the bright colors of the flowers, giving the store a very dramatic feel. In case you catch the co-owner, a conversation with him about tips on floral combinations and arrangements will definitely complete your experience.
Mabolo Flowers, 2295 Chino Roces Ave., Makati, Metro Manila, 02 893 5689, www.maboloflowers.com
5. Spruce Floral Designs
Spruce Floral Designs is a well-known flower resource which has been featured time and time again in magazines. They are known best for weddings and events, but they also specialize in floral arrangements for other occasions (or maybe even for no reason at all!). If you live down South, it’ll be easy for you to drop by their warehouse in Paranaque; otherwise, just call them for a catalog of their special designs and have them delivered to your doorstep.
Spruce Floral Designs, 129 Diego Silang, Phase 1, AFPOVAI Village, Taguig, Metro Manila, 02 519 2937, www.sprucefloraldesigns.com
6. La Vie Fleurs
La Vie Fleurs is an Instagram-based flower shop that started its operations just last Valentine’s Day. Owned by friends Klay and Aimee, they, together with an in-house florist, arrange the flowers themselves and personally deliver them to you. For this Mother’s Day, their special orders include a potted succulent with any bouquet or vase of flowers for your mom. Watch out for any upcoming flower arrangement workshops in the next few months!
