The best flower delivery in Chicago

1. UrbanStems

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

2. Ode à la Rose

If the name didn't give it away already, 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 of Chicago, next-day to the suburbs and neighboring cities in the Midwest). 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. The interface is easy and downright gorgeous, and you don’t have to worry about sifting through cheesy arrangements in search of something special. 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.

If you're trying to think beyond the confines of a dozen red roses, Taxaflora can help. Owner Tara Guenther creates lush, pillowy and utterly inventive-looking arrangements in palettes ranging from fiery corals and reds to soft baby pink and white. The "weekly mix" option, available in three sizes, will net you a bouquet filled with anything from peonies to poppies, so be prepared to see a variety of the season's prettiest flowers. The shop delivers fresh blooms locally and dried arrangements—which last up to three years—can be shipped.

5. The Bouqs Co.

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. That includes a collection of blooms grown at the base of a volcano in South America. (How's that for a story?) With a streamlined ordering process, the price you see is what you get, with the delivery fee included. Choose from dozens of floral designs, with same-day delivery also available.

6. Flowers For Dreams

Shopping Flower shops River West/West Town

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. You'll also never be upsold on a teddy bear, box of chocolates or cheesy balloons—they don't even carry them! The flowers are center-stage.

Shopping Design and interiors River West/West Town

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.

Inspired by European-style flower shops, Marguerite Gardens offers a fantastic range of fresh blooms from the familiar (roses, lilies, tulips) to more unique (pincushion protea, raspberry thistle) in a rustic-industrial West Town space. Without a doubt, the best way to order delivery from Marguerite is by selecting "Designer's Choice," and allowing the pros to pull the freshest stems from their inventory—all you have to do is choose a price point ($75, $90 or $125) and they'll do the rest.

Working with a network of Chicago shops not only allows them to offer easy same-day delivery, but also gives you a much more diverse selection to choose from. Blooms on offer include red anemones cascading over a cream vase, cheery sunflowers and even a collection of succulents and airplants nestled into a real log.
