Roses et Pivoines is not your ordinary upscale florist. But then, wouldn’t you expect a special floral shop in the Miami Design District? Edi Soledad, the owner and creative director comes from a fashion background in London and it shows. I bought several white tinged with green hydrangeas which he wrapped in thick black paper, tied with a black ribbon, and attached a black card with the word “enjoy” in gold ink. As I walked around the District with my bouquet, an affordable luxury at $9, people stopped me to ask where I got them. Then there are his over the top floral arranging classes. Perfect for gifts – or for self gifting – for Valentine’s Day or anytime. And for another indulgence, while in the Design District, check out new ice cream and sweet shop, MadLab Creamery by Soraya Kilgore (yes, the wife of Alter chef Bradley).
