Broadway Floral Home and Garden
It’s impossible to pass by Broadway Floral without taking in the sight and smell of rack upon rack upon rack of fresh-cut flowers. “Everything we do is of that European style—our flower carts are right out front on the sidewalk,” explains owner Doug Fick. So go ahead, let the carts inspire you and encourage you to create your own designs.
When you say something with flowers, it just sounds better. But when you choose an eco-florist to help you say it, it feels better too. So what does an eco-florist look like? She looks a lot like Hilary Holmes, owner of Emerald Petals, who's been arranging flowers since the late-1990s. Her goal, she says, is to not just provide flowers for all occasions, but to make sure those flowers are grown close to Portland's city limits.
Old Town Florist
Jeff and Wendi Day have been been providing flowers to the metro area from their Pearl District digs for almost 20 years. In fact, the shop was in the Pearl before it was the Pearl. Although they source a few flowers from Hawaii, the Days specialize in supporting local growers by buying those flowers first, which they arrange and deliver to hotels, restaurants and corporate offices. Personal delivery services are available, too.
Valentine’s Day’s a lot closer than you think. So don’t sleep, and get your sweetheart a nice bouquet or arrangement from Broadway Floral, Emerald Petals or Old Town Florist.
