Best of Boston

2007 Best Florist


Some florists scare you off with raggedly stocked refrigerator cases and their fondness for baby’s breath and similarly out-of-date fillers. Others make you nervous with their don’t-touch austerity (hey, where are all the flowers?). Twig, though, gets it just right: Bursting with gorgeous blooms, this tiny urban oasis has floral experts practiced in arrangements that are sophisticated yet warm and real—and the Commonwealth Avenue location sells soaps, candles, and luxury chocolates to boot.
