There is nothing more beautiful than a fresh, crisp orchid in the house. Problem is, orchids from florists tend to be expensive – easily between $100 and $200. And if you are anything like me, no matter how well you try to care for the orchid, their life expectancy is a month, 6 weeks at best. So, if you live in New York, the flower district on West 28th street is the best deal in town! Not only are there beautiful fresh flowers for you to choose from (all event planners go to 28th street to get their flowers for events), but they sell the most affordable and beautiful orchids in the city! AND THEY DELIVER!

aisles of orchids

Rows upon rows of orchids in every color, size, and style.

Although most of the stores in the flower district deliver, it also makes for a fun early morning adventure to see all the colorful flowers, holiday plants, and New York Flavor.

Ah-mazing. Can't handle the beauty as there are TOO many choices.


Why hello perfect stop for an "I love you" present.


Plants for the house.


Aisles galore.


The store employees pack the bags nicely, stuffed with tissue paper and firm handles for safe transportation.

I love having orchids throughout the house, in the entry way, on the TV ledge, in the bathroom. One can never have too many orchids!

You can choose to have the orchids in glass or clay pots, one stem or two (or three), and what color. So many choices!

My favorite shop for orchids is Holiday Flower and Plant as they have the most beautiful selection, great prices ($25 to $85 per orchid which is much cheaper than you can get them from florists), and excellent service. Plus they deliver anywhere in the city for $15! Ah-mazing.


Entry to heaven.

Business card. Put their number in your cell phone. You don't want to lose this contact.

Orchids are the perfect present for someone or eye candy in your own home. So, if you are in New York and need one, visit or call! Too bad they do not ship them across the country!!!

  1. Beautiful flowers! They are perfect for the holiday. It is probably a little expensive for me to fly in from Nebraksa, but I enjoy the pictures.

  2. The orchids are magnificent. I would like to tour all those florist shops. The numbers of flowers and their beauty are spectacular.

  3. What a great idea. It is helpful to know which stores will serve the retail customer. Some just serve wholesale buyers. thanks for the article.
