Send local blooms to a special someone
Brighten someone's day with a bouquet from a local florist. Not only does your order help support a San Antonio business during this tough economic time, it’s also an easy way to spread positivity in the age of social distancing. Local flower shop Oakleaf Florist is offering contactless bouquet delivery while its storefront is closed in accordance with the citywide stay-at-home order.
