Spring has officially arrived in Brickell, with all the energy and enthusiasm this time of year brings. And this eminently walkable neighborhood is ready for the season, offering a profusion of world-class shopping, restaurants, cultural events, and more. To meet the spirit of spring, try dressing up these light-filled Brickell Flatiron condos with fresh, colorful flowers. 

Whether residents are serious about their flower arranging or are just looking to brighten up a room, the meticulously detailed living spaces at Brickell Flatiron offer myriad opportunities for practicing the art. The living rooms, with sun-welcoming floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive Biscayne Bay and city views, are perfect for experimenting with the endless hues, shapes, and sizes of flowers. And the kitchens, equipped with Italian-made Snaidero cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops, and Miele appliances, make an inspiring canvas for floral creations.

Finding quality flowers is the first step, and that is no problem in Brickell. The neighborhood is home to a number of high-end florists, from shops that will surprise and delight with unique arrangements to those that will teach anyone with a love for beautiful blooms to make their own designs. Here are a few of them.

Just down the street from the sleek, curving form of the Brickell Flatiron tower is Brickell Ave Florist, a neighborhood staple that promises same-day delivery within the area. Brickell Ave Florist should be the first place that residents call when they need flowers for any occasion. The shop also provides free floral consultations for residents who need a little advice on what will work best in their space.

For important celebrations and memorable moments, there is Madame Rosette Floral Boutique, a specialty florist dedicated to bringing fresh luxury flowers to South Florida, as well as shipping preserved roses, candies, and other gifts around the nation. And residents can hold their private events in Brickell Flatiron’s Clubroom, a large, stylish space located on the building’s Club Levels (which also include a state-of-the-art theater, a billiards room, and an outdoor lap pool on the terrace of the 18th floor).

Residents who want to take their flower arranging to the next level will be interested in classes at the Miami School of Flower Design. Founded by celebrity florist and designer Michael Gaffney, the Miami School of Flower Design offers comprehensive courses aimed at revealing the florist’s secrets to the masses. While Gaffney focuses on the various elements of floral arrangement, he also shares his tips and tricks for navigating a flower market and shows how to cut flowers to keep them fresh for as long as possible.

Once they’ve ordered their new arrangement or put it together themselves, Brickell Flatiron residents can return to their bright, airy homes, and decide on the perfect placement for their flowers. After all, each arrangement is only as good as its setting, and the homes at Brickell Flatiron, with their perfectly chosen materials and exquisite Italian styling, will shed favorable light on even the most basic bouquets. So, schedule a virtual presentation today, and welcome spring to these singular Brickell homes.
