Arranging the perfect bouquet, centerpiece, etc. is tough – we get it. Fortunately, Portland has a host of talented floral designers that specialize in everything from weddings to “just because” arrangements. If you could use a little help shopping for florals in Portland, here are our suggestions:
If you’re own a time crunch, don’t think you’ve missed your window of opportunity to purchase a thoughtful, custom arrangement. Fieldwork offers same-day Portland flower delivery, and we can’t say enough great things about their playful, garden-style arrangements. The designers pride themselves on “balanc[ing] our classic minimalist aesthetic with fun abstractions to create the prettiest, healthiest bouquets in Portland.” The blooms are purchased locally, so you’re supporting local farmers too! You can visit their store on SE Belmont.

DIY Flower Bouquets
If you trust your artistic eye and you prefer to arrange florals yourself, you’re in luck — Portland has many great options for u-pick or u-style florals. Here are a few of our favorites:
A day trip to Kruger’s is one of the best ways to spend a Saturday. Gather your young gardeners or a few friends, and make the trek out to Sauvie Island to pick your own flowers. During the summer, you’ll find acres of zinnias, dahlias, and sunflowers. Check in at the main barn, and they’ll loan you the tools you need to start clipping your blooms. Prices for the flowers range from $0.50-1.50 per stem, making this an affordable way to shop for flowers!
While the botanically inspired florists at Solabee are happy to help you craft your floral arrangements, they’re also happy to turn you loose and let you create on your own! At their north Portland shop, you’ll find an assortment of whimsical blooms paired with stock greens — always reflecting what’s in season. With specialty blooms traveling from far away places (like Protea from Hawaii), you’re guaranteed to walk away with a bouquet that is anything but generic.
What floral-worthy occasions are coming up in your life? Whether you reach out to a Portland floral designer or you create your own DIY bouquet, we hope our guide helps you outfit your next event with the prettiest blooms!
