Best Florist - 2009
Cebolla Fine Flowers
Luit and Jamie Huizenga's Cebolla may have the accommodating staff of your basic neighborhood flower shop, but it's so much more than that. The husband- and wife-run flower emporium offers not only dynamic, elegant and artistic floral arrangements, but also a variety of living plants, succulents and, when the season is right, unique gifts like monarch butterfly chrysalises that will eventually hatch, shake out their wings and fly. For more than a decade, Cebolla has provided a chic and inventive take on the time-tested floral gift, but this fall, the Huizengas are growing their endeavors with the opening of an expansive Maple Avenue location that will feature a greenhouse for blooms grown on location, fresh-cut and bulk flowers, space for event and wedding consultations and even antique furniture.
