Flower Shop in Makati

Citiflora Makati Office


Philippine Blooms is a brand name of Citiflora Flower Shop began in 1996 along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City and was under the name of Flowers & Vines. Currently, it is located at 8893-D Sampaloc Street, San Antonio Village, Makati City. Philippine Blooms Flower Shop is one of the best flower shops in Makati City. As a result of the owners’ decades of experience in the flower industry, Philippine Blooms / Citiflora became known for fresh quality flowers, elegant floral designs, and excellent customer service provided by a team of well-trained florists and caring customer support staff.


Before establishing Philippine Blooms / Citiflora, Larry Darroca has worked as a florist at reputable flower shops, one of which is located in Muscat, Oman and owned by an international European company. After several years of training abroad, Larry came back to the Philippines to work in one of the most prestigious companies in Makati City. He pursued his passion and worked once again as a floral designer; and later on, he also became an event stylist and a visual stylist for the same company. To finally demonstrate the fruits of his labor and training, he established Philippine Blooms / Citiflora in 2008 in Project 6, Quezon City. Larry shared his talent in flower arranging to young aspiring florists and worked to develop his signature style.


Philippine Blooms / Citiflora Flower Shop became a big success and has made several appearances in the following TV shows: Unang Hirit (GMA 7, October 2011),  Good Morning Club (TV 5, July 2013), Good Morning Club (TV 5, October 2013), Good Morning Club (TV 5, February 2014), and Kabuhayang Swak na Swak (ABS-CBN, September 2015). In 2013, Citiflora also sponsored for Miss World International.


As a way to share blessings to the Filipino community, Larry Darroca joined the Rotary Club of Makati San Antonio (RCMSA), District 3830 in 2015 and Children of Notre Dame Org., Inc. (COND) from 2016 to 2018. He was given the opportunity to contribute to peace and conflict prevention/resolution, disease prevention and treatment, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, basic education and literacy, and economic and community development. He was elected as Club President of RCMSA in 2017, and Org. President of COND in 2016. As President of these organizations, he led several service projects which involved donating school supplies and drinking water facilities, gift giving, food feeding, tree planting, and medical and dental missions.

Since the business became a success, Citiflora was able to put up a branch in Makati wherein the main office is situated.

Makati is the financial center of the Philippines; it has the highest concentration of multinational and local corporations in the country. Major banks, corporations, department stores as well as foreign embassies are based in Makati. The biggest trading floor of the Philippine Stock Exchange is situated along the city's Ayala Avenue. It’s known for the skyscrapers and shopping malls of Makati Central Business District, and for Ayala Triangle Gardens, an area dotted with trees and sculptures.
