If you haven’t gotten your Valentine a beautiful bouquet of flowers yet and you plan to, there is still time!  But if you are getting flowers, do it right and get them from Babylon Floral.

Babylon Floral, at 17th and Marion, is a fantastic flower shop in the heart of the Uptown neighborhood that makes beautiful custom floral designs and bouquets at all price ranges.  I have been in twice for custom bouquets, and both times was incredibly impressed by the skill of the floral designers, the sense of vision of the staff, and the incredible beauty of the finished products.  Just walking in the store alone is like a free admission to an art gallery–except the art is intricately made from living plants.

The staff is very friendly, patient, and accommodating.  They take in your vision and budget and then build on it to produce breathtaking floral displays.  When I go in, I typically tell them I want something really beautiful for x dollars, maybe specify a few types of flowers that I definitely want included, and then ask if it is possible to make a stunning bouquet at that price.  They respond, “Absolutely.”  Then, they do it, custom-making a bouquet based upon my vision but about five times more beautiful than what I could have ever imagined.

Instead of getting your Valentine’s Day flowers from the supermarket this year, consider going the extra mile and getting a bouqet that will make your special someone’s jaw drop.  Go to Babylon.
