Larkspur's beautiful Bucktown storefront is a big draw; walking by makes you want what's inside.
We found their business card in a surprisingly lovely bar bathroom, so we asked around. Not only was this bathroom full of Larkspur's simple, fresh flower arrangements, but the shop's staff is known for adding floral touches in unexpected ways at unexpected locations. The shop caters to both everyday flower seekers and commercial clients looking for floral design services. Beth Barnett, the shop's owner, has run Larkspur since 1994, encouraging questions and showing expertise on many types of floral projects.
When we look for flowers, we're big on browsing and mixing (not always going for what we think is our "favorite flower.") Browsing a place like this can be the best way to figure out what flowers will suit you, your mood and your home. Oh, and your budget too.
