The best flower delivery in Chicago

You won't get a more seasonal arrangement than at UrbanStems. These folks only sell stuff they can acquire from farms, so the variety they stock changes each month. Each arrangement is imaginatively named (The Mulberry, The Optimist, The Finesse…) and cut by the capable in-house pros. And the best part? Delivery is already included. Get in.

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 fellas 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 of Chicago). And to ensure you're absolutely happy with your order, they'll even send a photo of it to you before they dispatch.

Take the guesswork out of ordering flowers with Floom, a digital service that delivers beautiful blooms from Chicago’s top florists, including Urban Flowers and Marguerite Gardens.

Browse a selection of thoughtfully curated bouquets and plants—all meticulously photographed so that you know what to expect—and schedule your delivery. There’s something for every price point and occasion, from birthdays to celebrations to tough times. Basically, these guys have got you covered, whatever it is you need.

Though the Bouqs Co. 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 day that you order them. With a streamlined ordering process, the price you see is what you get, with the delivery fee included. There's even a subscription service for that regular dose of floral vibrancy. Choose from dozens of floral designs, with same-day delivery also available.

Born as a college project, Flowers for Dreams has revolutionized the concept of floral delivery in Chicago. How? The company set out to do away with baby’s breath and pesticide-infested roses in favor of modern, locally sourced stems. To top it all off, a quarter of its profits go towards a local charity each month. Starting at just $35, you can get a charming bouquet artfully wrapped in rustic, recyclable cloth, hand-delivered. The flowers are center-stage.

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 seasonal blooms. 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.
