These are my go-to picks, but please send suggestions too!
  1. TTH Blooms
    420261 739ddcfc 49f0 4344 b775 35b1b9639ab0
    My favorite of the bunch (pun intended!), definitely check out the flowers by fashion-editor-and-street-style-star-turned-florist Taylor Tomasi Hill. She’s THE go-to girl for those who are in the know. @tthblooms on Instagram.
  2. Miho
    420271 8badc336 25f1 491b 9420 6aafbcbf5ec3
    If Miho’s flowers are good enough for Anna Wintour and a notoriously finicky shoe designer (who shall not be named), they’re probably good enough for you. Definitely expensive tho, so be warned. No website or social, as far as I know, but there is a phone number: 212-922-9122.
  3. Putnam & Putnam
    741591 0a9c976d 23a8 480b 94b1 3f0034fe0fcb
    A Manhattan fashion favorite, Putnam pops up in loads of print editorials—like Vogue—and does a fair amount of flowers for events (ranging from Moda Operandi parties to NYFW presentations) and companies/stores like Saks and The Line. They do smaller, individual deliveries too. Reminds me a bit of Bloom & Plume in LA.
  4. Michael George
    741611 71680da3 2870 47b7 8b3f 70c3e0ba0623
    Aside from the fact that I want to flip & reverse this company’s name so that it sounds more Bluth-ian, this is another good option, located in the East Village. You can search by color or flower species, the latter of which is great if you’re getting flowers for an anemone lover or a ranunculus freak. Pretty good prices for NYC flowers too!
  5. Belle Fleur
    420291 16ed7f4c 7c8c 4c24 a973 7fe0e6292a3f
    Think of Belle Fleur as the Empty Vase of New York, so in other words: a great, easy option to have in your back pocket. They were the *thing* when I worked at ELLE (uh, like 10 years ago) and they’re still going strong. I like that their site arranges the flowers in different color/vibe types, like “citrus,” “sunset” and “jewel.”
  6. Saipua *the green, no pun intended, choice*
    741601 af746839 5bea 4859 a644 8f5aed1a88f3
    A Brooklyn-based florist (with a focus on weddings), the Saipua team delivers in Manhattan and Brooklyn, but only on Wednesdays through Saturdays. The company emphasizes sustainability and growing “clean” flowers, and does event work for brands like Louis Vuitton and Fendi.
  7. Adore
    741621 ab56c62f 7741 4187 bebc b91de2a67c4e
    This relatively reasonably priced Noho shop happily has loads of different photo options to look at, so you get a specific sense of their work and can tweak your order accordingly. Loved by the downtown technocrat crowd, they also deliver to Manhattan and most of Brooklyn, and will do same-day delivery if you order online before 1 p.m., which is nice.
  8. Emily Thompson Flowers
    741951 bb33b4f8 3980 4d4f b8f9 ffe06ddbe9c3
    Recommended to me by my lovely pal Jane Herman Bishop (she’s the co-founder of Jean Stories and the style director of Travel + Leisure), they did the flowers for her wedding, and she has the best taste ever, so that’s a win in my book. Online they have four standard arrangements—ranging from $95-$350—but you can make requests and give design directions.
  9. Posies
    741961 fdbe88ce fd1d 4b6f 89f8 80ed6eabd841
    Located on the Upper West Side, this flower shop is dedicated to creating (more) affordable arrangements. A self-proclaimed “bouquet shop”—with an emphasis on monochromatic bouquets made of three or so types of flowers—they also do classes & custom work.
  10. Flower Girl NYC
