Winner of FTD's “Top 100” industry-achievement award, Lexis Florist has crafted prize-winning plant art for more than 20 years. Each floral arranger positions fresh, seasonal blooms at aesthetic angles, from a clear vase of 12 red roses with curly willow accents ($89) to a glass globe brimming with pink petal-pops ($75). A vaseful of tulips celebrates the arrival of summer ($55), and a motley bunch of gingers, anthuriums, and other tropical blossoms adds color to a snow-white kitchen ($135). Lexis Florist's heart-shaped arrangement framed by orchids ($195) expresses love and devotion without the exhaustion of building a 20-foot greeting-card ice sculpture.
Led by skilled instructors, Lexis Florist’s Sips and Snips class pairs fine wine with floral-design projects, as bud-buddies learn the fundamentals of creating seasonal bouquets and themed arrangements, from birthday nosegays to wreaths commemorating a new refrigerator purchase. Classes are offered from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays in July. Students should call Lexis Floral to check availability and reserve a spot.
