Valentine’s Day has long passed, but buying a loved one flowers doesn’t have to be exclusive to one day a year. Whether it’s a significant other, parent, sibling, or close friend, flower arrangements are essential all year round.
The perfect destination for all South Floridian floral needs is Boca’s own Field of Flowers. The flower market lives up to its slogan – “like no other flower market on earth”. It has three locations in Davie, Palmetto, and Boca, all stocked with fresh flowers and plants. Flowers are delivered daily from South America, Holland, and Canada. The shops selection’s constantly changing with a new and unique variety of fresh-cut flowers.
Field of Flowers has a wide variety of floral options to chose from at an exceedingly low price. Customers can hand pick flowers, buy an arrangement in store, order online, and even get floral arrangements delivered. Your flowers are in good hands, since the florists at Field of Flowers send the unique arrangements on refrigerated trucks locally and out of the area. They deliver locally on their own vans ensuring a fresh bouquet. Local, same day delivery extends from Homestead to Boynton Beach. Out of area delivery extends globally, making it easy to send a loved one a thoughtful gift who live out of state or even out of the country.
The Field of Flowers was established in 1990 by Donn Flipse, who has great experience in greenhouse apprenticeship. The shop is now owned and run by the third generation of family florists and is one of the most successful and popular flower shops in this area. For interesting flower arrangements, try this site.
Field of Flowers also offers Floral Design Classes at their FlowerBar. We spoke with Lucas Garcia, Floral Designer at Field of Flowers in Boca. He told us they offer classes at many levels and times throughout the summer. There are Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced workshops as well as Kids and Teens classes, Wednesday through Saturday.
Classes are affordable too, ranging from $39 to $49 per person. Wine is even included in the nighttime class package! The floral arrangement classes are perfect for parties and private events and even for a unique date night. Classes can be booked online. Garcia recommends booking a day in advance since the popular classes fill up fast.
Garcia explained arranging flowers is an art form, “not just putting flowers in a vase.” The craft requires aesthetics, design, symmetry, or asymmetry, as well as a keen eye for color. Creating arrangements are a fun way to build four dimensional works of art. Lucas recommends coming to a class to build your own sweet smelling arrangement.
The flower market also offers a FOF Club Card. Club members save 10% on all purchases (including classes) for one year. Garcia said the membership’s worth it and pays for itself if you make larger holiday purchases or enjoy having fresh flowers weekly. The membership allows members of the Boca Community to receive quality flowers at a discounted price.
Although it’s summer and the holidays are still in the future, there’s always an occasion to have fresh cut, beautiful flowers. We highly suggest checking out the elegant, calm atmosphere at Field of Flowers Boca Raton. Enjoy a day perusing the large assortment of flowers, purchase a gift, cater an event, or take a floral design class. It’s worth ditching the grocery store flower aisle and checking out Field of Flowers.
