Best Florist - 2012
Botanicals Design Studio
Flowers are a beautiful way to show someone you're thinking of them. But the truth is, all you can take credit for is the initial thought — and choosing the right florist. Once you've done that, it's really up to the floral designer to make the impression you hoped to achieve. Anyone can Google "florist" and find dozens of options, but your goodwill gesture will stand out so much more when it comes from a shop like Botanicals Design Studio. Take one step into the small store on South Grand Boulevard across from Tower Grove Park, and it is evident that these florists bury themselves in their work — quite literally. Supplies and workspaces for every arrangement (fresh and silk) imaginable cover the workshop floor to ceiling, front to back. Staff, including co-owners Keith McDonnell and Dean Riebeling, are friendly and helpful and ready to create the perfect floral representation of any message you want delivered.
