Welcome to Dorothy McDaniel's Flower Market, voted Best Florist in Birmingham by Birmingham magazine and The Birmingham News. By consistently providing more quality, more value, and more innovative design to our customers, we have been a leading florist in greater Birmingham for over 30 years.

Dorothy McDaniel's Flower Market offers you:

  • Traditional design with an edge
  • Beauty you can afford
  • Service you can trust

Each week we order fresh flowers directly from the best growers located around the world. Those flowers are shipped by air right to our back door. No middle man means fresher flowers and lower prices. The three coolers in our store maintain that freshness. Our flowers simply last longer. At Dorothy McDaniel's Flower Market you can fulfill all your floral and related needs and desires at a price you can afford. Give us a call at 205-871-0092, order on line, send an e-mail to info@dorothymcdaniel.com, or, better yet, drop by in person, to see what we can do for you.

After such a long cold winter I'm certain that we are all anxiously looking forward to spring. Already, the daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips are up, and even a few early fruit trees are in bud. Two important April dates are just around the corner. Easter is Sunday, April 20th, followed closely by Administrative Professional's Day on Wednesday, April 23.

For Easter we have a variety of cheerful spring arrangements. We would love to design your centerpiece. If you have a special vase or container, bring it in and let us personalize your Easter arrangement or centerpiece. We also have a variety of lovely small containers that make striking individual table settings when filled with spring flowers or a simple bit of blue, green, or white hydrangea. The shop will be filled with potted hydrangeas, azaleas, and other blooming plants available for spring gifting, either solely or in combination with other plants for a lovely European garden. If you can dream it our talented designers can achieve it.

This is also the time of year when many seasonal blooms, such as peonies, will be at their largest and best. It's hard to beat a simple arrangement of bright tulips in a glass vase, or a little silver julep cup mounded with garden roses. Spring is the time for renewal. Let us brighten your day, or that of a loved one, with just the right floral design.

Administrative Professional's Day is the perfect time to show appreciation to those who work tirelessly to insure your business success. We will have a variety of pre-prepared live plants and floral arrangements to dress that desk or cubicle. With advance notice we can accommodate multiple orders and deliver them directly to your Administrative Professional.

Spring dances and recitals are in full swing, with their accompanying corsages, boutonnieres, and presentation bouquets to be presented in our famous "brown box". Be sure to order early, as these items must be freshly made on the day to be at their best.

On a More Personal Note...This year I am celebrating my 37th year of providing my customers with floral designs to make plain days memorable and special days exceptional. I am serving second and third generations of brides, prom goers, sweethearts, and little dancers. This summer will see changes, with a move to an exciting new location, but my dedication to brightening your day with flowers will always be the same.
