While the idea of planning anything romantically over-the-top is out of question because of Covid, many DMV-area florists have stepped up their flower game this year for Valentine’s Day. And some have partnered with local restaurants or stores to include a three course meal with their fresh blooms. Here’s a rundown.
DC flower studio REWILD has a number of arrangements exclusively for Valentine’s Day this year. Their offerings come in three different sizes, and you can pre-order now to be picked up at their Shaw location Feb. 13 or 14. From their classic single rose and eucalyptus arrangement the “Fist Bump,” to their half dozen roses and sweet pea arrangement, the “Lil’ Squeeze,” right down to their “Big Smooch,” a dozen red roses and half a dozen sweet peas, there’s something for everyone at this flower boutique shop.
Alexandria grocery store Neighborhood Provisions is providing a red rose Valentine’s Day bouquet for $75. Select your delivery date (Feb 12, 13, or 14) and they guarantee delivery between 10am to 5pm. Along with their bouquet, customers can also pre-order a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday Valentine’s Day dinner, an at-home caviar service, chocolate dipped strawberries, and other special treats.
La Famosa and Little Leaf
Navy Yard’s Puerto Rican-inspired restaurant La Famosa is partnering with DC’s popular succulent plant shop Little Leaf; their ‘Mucho Amor’ V-Day special includes a three-course dinner for two from Chef Joancarlo Parkhurst as well as an option to upgrade their tropical experience with a Little Leaf arrangement. Depending on the size and type of arrangement you choose, for an extra $24, $30, or $50 customers can order a potted heart hoya plant or a bouquet of freshly cut tropical flowers, such as bird of paradise and monstera leaves. Pre-orders can be placed online; the special menu will be available Friday, Feb. 12 through Sunday, Feb. 14.
Father-son duo George and Will Dukas are providing farm-fresh, hand-delivered flowers to DC, Baltimore, and the Maryland and Virginia suburbs for Valentine’s Day.
