The best flower delivery in Chicago

When it comes to the freshest seasonal flowers, make a beeline for UrbanStems. These guys work directly with the growers – Rainforest Alliance Certified farms only – so can ensure beautiful blooms. They've got a lovely selection, from chipper bouquets of spring flowers to hypoallergenic dried arrangements and super cute succulents. Plus, you can add gifts like Brins jams, Nest candles, and Compartes lavender chocolate. They only offer same-day delivery in NYC and DC, but the next-day post is available coast-to-coast.

If it wasn't already abundantly clear, Ode á la Rose is French. Or at least it was founded by a couple of lovely French guys who add unfiltered levels of chic to their arrangements. Each bouquet is hand-tied in their West Town studio in Chicago, then packaged in a stylish pink box and sent out for delivery (same-day within the city). And to ensure you're absolutely happy, they'll even send a photo of it to you before they dispatch, so you can be sure your order is picture-perfect.

If you're trying to think beyond the confines of roses when it comes to something pretty, Taxaflora can help. Owner Tara Guenther creates lush, pillowy, and utterly inventive-looking arrangements in color schemes ranging from fiery corals and reds to soft baby pink and white.

The shop delivers fresh blooms locally and dried arrangements (which last up to three years) that can be shipped straight to you.

Though this is a national floral-delivery service, the company has more compelling arrangements than the humdrum bouquets of carnations and daisies you see on some competitor sites. In fact, The Bouqs Co. sources all of its flowers from eco-friendly and socially responsible farms, with the blooms cut the same day you order them. The ordering process is satisfyingly streamlined and the price you see is the price you get. Bonus: the delivery fee is included. Choose from dozens of floral designs, with same-day flower delivery in Chicago also available.

One of the biggest take homes from the various lockdowns we all had to endure during the peak of the pandemic was to support our communities. Flowers For Dreams are doing just that with a firm shop local initiative. They only source blooms from farms in Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin, and they hand-deliver all their orders. To top it off, FFD set up a foundation to raise vital funds for local charities. They donate a quarter of all profits and in the last decade have raised almost $1m for charity. Want to help? All you have to do is order some beautiful blooms.

Sprout Home might be better known for its houseplant and garden selection, but the West Town shop also crafts leafy, gorgeous flower arrangements that can be delivered within the Chicago area. Choose from one of several color group themes ("Dawn" gets you pastel tones while "Storm" draws from inky violets and dramatic textures) and one of the shop's florists will create a custom bouquet from a seasonal selection. Looking for a longer-term floral decor option? You can also order bunches of preserved blooms, which are available in punchy pinks and fuschia in addition to the muted colors more typical of dried flowers.

You'd be forgiven for thinking the only flower you can get from Roses Only is, well, roses, but you'd be wrong. Typically they do only sell those romantic blooms, but for special occasions, they've added pink lilies, wildflowers and glorious golden sunflowers to their selection. Get them mixed together or solo in a statement bouquet and add a box of Godiva chocolates for that extra special touch. And for the florally challenged, you can even purchase Infinity Roses, which are real flowers that have been specially treated to last for an entire year.

With a farm located in southwest Michigan, Field & Florist deals in exquisitely fresh local blooms — which means nothing's flown in from afar. The bouquets on offer are whimsical yet fresh and incorporate rarer finds you can't just pick up at your average grocery store. Plus, the shop offers an array of beautiful, thoughtfully curated gifts, from bespoke perfumes and hand-crafted truffles to yummy bath products and glassware. Be warned, these lovely blooms can't be shipped so make sure you're within the delivery range or can collect them.
