Let’s be real— Chicago in the winter isn’t the most verdant of destinations. While we love our city in all seasons (for different reasons), the long stretch of cold, gray days can leave us craving sunshine, green grass, and cheerful blooms. Why not bring a little springr to your home or a loved one’s with a bouquet of fresh flowers? We have created a list of the best flower shops in Chicago that offer seasonal blooms.
Named a runner-up for Chicago Reader’s Best Florist of 2019, Asrai Garden first opened in Wicker Park in 1999, and has since been a trusted flower shop to get “stunning floral arrangements, luxurious fine jewelry, and magical curiosities.”
In addition to its brick-and-mortar shop that offers fresh flowers, home goods, and other gifts, Fleur has a design team available by appointment to help furnish your event with a fantastic array of floral decorations.
