Most reviewers say Field of Flowers' service is great and its flowers are beautiful. Citysearchers give the Davie location four stars:
- I go out of my way to buy the freshest flowers. The selection is enormous. I would recommend to anyone to just walk in and you will see what I mean. I have also taken a few design classes there. They don't mind teaching you how to make your arrangements! – jen70
- I love their flowers, and order frequently for friends and family, though I also like to pick up a bunch of flowers for myself. But, I'm not an expert in flower design. Thankfully, every time I visit someone helps me pick something out that looks beautiful. – Mimi777
- Had my wedding done 2 weeks ago without a hitch. I drove from Miami (about 30 min) just because of good things a friend told me. Prices were within reason. They have an amazing selection if you go visit. – yoli68
Field of Flowers
Some of Donn F. Flipse's earliest memories are of him wielding a broom, sweeping up the fallen petals and snipped-off stamen that have gathered around the feet of the floral designers at his family's flower shop. Eight-year-old Donn eventually moved up in rank, escorting arrangements to their destinations in the delivery truck as soon as he got his license. When he graduated college, he almost turned his back on the flower business his father and his grandfather built, but after mentoring under one of the shop's floral designers, he realized, “It was in his blood.” In 1990, he opened Field of Flowers in Davie.
The rose, he says, continues to be the most popular flower, although different breeds take the crown every so often—the current favorite is the garden rose, a throwback blossom like what might flourish in a well-tended backyard. Donn's favorites are the rose-like lisanthius and the Canterbury bells, which look delicate but are sturdy and long lasting, much like a quarterback who takes ballet classes.
Field of Flower's team of designers compose striking arrangements using popular flowers as well as rare blooms such as orchids or birds of paradise. The team also crafts design pieces for celebrations, with past creations including a french poodle sculpted from flowers and a Spongebob Squarepants–themed arrangements in which blue gel simulated the ocean, submerging plants in an under-the-sea wonderland.
