The 5 best flower shops in Antwerp
Marc Colle creates the most flamboyant bouquets using rare flowers. In recent years, he has created floral displays for several Antwerp designers, including Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and Raf Simons. Yet his bouquets are still remarkably affordable.
This shop sells plants to brighten up offices in the diamond district. It has a wide selection of beautiful orchids, but also sells sturdy outdoor plants for urban balconies and beautiful bouquets to take to a dinner party.
3) Bloemen van Cornelis
This tiny shop filled with flowers occupies a historic house in the old town. The owner suggests simple arrangements like a bunch of yellow tulips or a pot with three hyacinths. He also sells potted plants for balconies, or even a single cut rose for Valentine’s Day.
4) De Groene Droom
This smart shop has giant cacti in the window and bright cut flowers arranged in old zinc pots on two long shelves. The shop will sell you plants for a roof terrace, or put together a bouquet for your best friend’s wedding.
5) Flor Artes
The brothers Yvan and Sven Roelandts opened this flower shop in 1985. They have an enormous variety of cut flowers sitting in metal pots along with exotic plants for living rooms and urban terraces.
