The top 25 flower shops in Toronto by neighbourhood
Flower shops and specialized florists have sprouted in almost every neighbourhood in Toronto, offering an artistic edge and expert know-how as an alternative to buckets of blooms at your closest grocery store. Whether your need a quick pick-me-up, a little something to help get out of the dog house, or are planning an event and need to decorate, these flower stores are just the ticket.
Here are my picks for the top flower shops in Toronto by neighbourhood.
Housed in a vibrant green building on Dupont, the Rose Emporium, as its name suggests, specializes in roses. Find Toronto's best selection of colours and varieties ready to be arranged for any occasion.
The Flower Room is a friendly neighbourhood florist found on Annette where walk-ins can purchase posies while event planners and decorators can peruse a portfolio of bouquets, boutonnieres, table settings, wreaths and urns.
Ladybug in The Village is stocked with fresh blooms brought in from local farmers and growers in Europe and South America. They employ their own drivers (rather than outsource delivery), so rest assured that bouquets and table arrangements will arrive looking their best.
Flox on Danforth is a rainbow wonderland of fresh cut stems, succulents and potted plants. Friendly staff will pull together bouquets on the fly or make themselves available for consults to plan custom orders.
Further east on The Danforth find NaNa, a charming little flower studio specializing in sculptural Ikebana arrangements. Aside from Japanese styled blooms, find everyday bouquets bursting with colour and delicately wrapped in crepe paper.
Enlist the creativity of Sweet Woodruff to deliver stunning contemporary floral design for any occasion. Whether shopping for hand-tied bouquets, table arrangements, or outfitting a bridal party with corsages and boutonnieres .
Two branches of Pistil can be found in the path, where the subterranean flower studio caters to corporate clients and the rush hour crowd heading home with a little something extra for their honey, or a centerpiece for the dinner table.
Wilbe Bloomin has been a staple in The Market for a decade, brightening the streetscapes with buckets of fresh flowers in the summer months. Pre-made bouquets, orchids and potted petals are ready for grab and go, while custom orders are always welcome.
Florabunda well suits the neighbourhood as a charming independant, mom and pop flower shop. The flower market is among the more affordable on this list making it a local favourite for satisfying that weekly flower fix, or picking up a last minute gift.
Jackie O is a chic little flower shop in Liberty Village where glamorous arrangements are sure to make a big impression. Splash out here if your event budget allows, or just treat your sweetie (or yourself) once in a while with vibrant everyday bouquets.
There's a lot to love about Sweetpea's, the eco-friendly floral studio on Roncesvalles. Not only does it fashion beautiful arrangements for any occasion, but it's a one-stop shop for giftwares and greeting cards too.
Bunches of blooms and French chocolates are the focus at The Chocolate Tulip - a one-stop source for wooing, celebrating or sympathizing.
