Don't let gas station flowers be your last resort!
Check out the Detroit florists for your V-Day plans!
For many, COVID-19 guarantees Valentine’s Day 2021 will look different and likely be way more lowkey than previous years thanks to social distancing. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate love’s holiday. Low key doesn’t have to mean any less fun or romantic. And if you’re riding out the pandemic sans boo or bae, remember V-Day isn’t solely for couples. February 14 is a day to celebrate love in all of its forms. From familial love to friendships that have morphed into kinships, and the all-important showing a little love to oneself.
The exchange of flower bouquets is par for the course on love’s holiday and with a few days remaining you may be wondering where to make your purchase.
We’ve got you covered.
There are a plethora of options, but if you’re looking for something local and want to keep things close to home no need to look too far. We’ve gathered a list of local florists that can cover a range of needs and tastes.

Flowers for Dreams
1435 Farmer St #120,
Detroit, MI 48226
Flowers for Dreams may be a newer name for some as the shop opened its doors just before the COVID-19 lockdowns went into effect in March 2020. Thankfully the shop has still been getting support. Founded by a floral company based in Chicago, these are flowers for a cause. Every bouquet sold benefits a local charity. Since opening just behind the Shinola Hotel the flower outpost has donated to organizations like the Michigan Humane Society and Gleaners Food Bank. Hand-delivered bouquets are free and if you want something customized you can walk-in Monday - Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m to 3 p.m. to place your order.
