Chicago's Best Florists

Maybe it’s her birthday, your anniversary or the coveted “just because” flowers. Finding the perfect bouquet or vase of flowers can sometimes be difficult.

These Chicago florists will help you pick out the flowers that are just right for the occasion.

Marguerite Gardens

Walking into Marguerite Gardens with its hardwood planks for a floor makes you feel like you’ve stepped into an cottage garden. If you’re looking for something a bit off the beaten path and adds a bit of cottage charm to her vases this spot is for you. If only to just walk through to see the spools of ribbon hung on the wall and the bud vases lined on shelves.

Asrai Garden

Walk into this shop and you’ll be greeted by all the flowers they offer sitting in glass jars and vases throughout the shop. They promise that they won’t make their flowers into strange shapes, dye them, or turn them into a sculpture. But they will create a great bouquet of flowers that are hand tied. If you’re looking for a certain color of flowers, this shop makes it easy by coordinating and displaying all the flowers by color. They also offer soaps, perfumes and creams.

Ashland Addison Florist

Ashland Addison has been in Chicago since 1932 when S. Roy Sheffield was first paid with flowers instead of cash by local flowers growers for helping cart their flowers to the market. He then would sell the flowers to people by the streetcars. The streetcars are gone now, but they are still preparing flower arrangements for all occasions. They even offer baked goods from BomBon Bakery. You can’t go wrong with flowers and cookies!
