The Best Florist In Town: Readers' Choice

Who's got the best bouquets, planters and floral arrangements?

Local florists are there to witness many of life's milestones: a birth, a wedding or an anniversary; a passing or a promotion; an apology, a fancy dinner or prom.

With prom and graduation season upon us -- not to mention Mother's Day on May 13 -- we're thinking about the power of the flower. And did you know? This week is Administrative Professionals Week (formerly known as Professional Secretaries Week), a time to remind your secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists and other administrative support professionals that you can't do without them.

So this week's Readers' Choice focuses on florists. Beginning today -- Monday, April 23 and through 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, we'll be asking for your recommendations for who is the best florist in town -- the professionals who put together floral arrangements, planters and bouquets.

Give us your recommendation in the comments section below. With your help, we'll put together a list of nominees. Then look for our poll on Thursday, April 26 and vote! We'll select a winner at 5 p.m. Friday, April 27 and announce it in a story on Saturday, April 28.

In judging, we'll consider comments, poll votes and reviews in our complete directory of local businesses. Be sure to check out our contest rules in the PDF at right.

We as a very large family(45), have gone to Bachman's on Hudson Drive., They are more than friendly, they are very down to earth, and going their is like going back in time because it is family in their shop, their work is outstanding and you know it will be the best flowers in any room anywhere you take them. their flower arrangements are full and look like the flower arrangement from olde. You would never be afraid of being embarassed of what you have sent to funerals, and you truly get more beauty for your money. Had nine of our children use for prom and weddings, gifts and more and was never unhappy. They have been in business for many good years. The George & Sarah Lipply Klan
