Best Chicago flower deliveries

1. Ode à la Rose

The ever-so-chic Ode á la Rose is one of those places where you can splash out if you wish, or keep the budget pretty low if you fancy it. Ode á la Rose has it all, from large and incredible flashy bouquets to small elegant bunches of carefully-selected roses. And the best bit? You can browse by category, including occasion, color, delivery, and price, so you’ll waste no time getting to the good stuff. Plus, they arrive looking mighty fine, hand-tied, and placed in a special box.

2. ProFlowers

We like the ethos behind ProFlowers, and the quality of what they do is exceptional, too. These guys led the way when it came to providing consumers direct access to growers (think of these as a farm-to-fork for flower delivery), and you can totally see the benefit. The quality of the bouquets and blooms on offer is exceptionally high, with a tangible freshness to the cut that makes their seven-day guarantee damn easy for them to fulfill. There’s a really solid selection, too – from fancy bunches all the way through to bonsai trees and swanky hampers. Highly recommended.

3. The Bouqs Co.

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.

Where they deliver: They deliver to most states in the U.S. For even speedier delivery, order by noon to receive them the next day. 

Why we like them: Their floral arrangements really know how to make a statement – great as a stand-alone gift or as part of a selection. 

What’s the price point: Blooms start from $49 for a one-off occasion or $35 per month with a subscription.
