Entwined in Grayslake is a special place with its simple to unique arrangements, and I appreciate the customer service from Kate and others there. One standout experience I had was just a couple years ago, when I dashed in before a funeral -- the lack of timing was completely on me and what I was hoping to find wasn’t exactly typical. Even though it was a busy day there, they were able to pull together everything I needed on the spot. The bill was stunningly low, all considering. They truly went above and beyond the call, and they helped me on a day when it was hard to speak. Since then, because I do feel they treat customers well and they have beautiful arrangements, I continue to recommend them to others and the shop will always be my first stop for flowers.

Lake Forest Flowers because you can email the local owners Eileen or John Looby 24/7 and have your arrangement ready when you need it. Our holiday arrangement lasted over two weeks!

“Real, or Not?” Beautiful fresh and silk flowers, Lake Forest Flowers’ creativity and quality is award-winning, and has my vote! For my Prom, thanks to a suggestion from Lake Forest Flowers’ helpful staff, I wore silk flowers in my hair. I had parents and peers marveling at my decorated up-do; they were convinced I had fresh-cut roses in my hair all night! Thank you, Lake Forest Flowers, for the amazing floral hairpieces; you truly know how to leave a lasting impression. Again, your creativity and quality has captured my vote!

We are fortunate, indeed to have so many good florists in our town, and our preferences are usually determined by our histories and affiliations, for sure. The times I have been literally "thunderstruck" by an arrangement that is unusually beautiful and exquisite: A wedding: Art Quest A funeral: Joseph A garden walk tour: Joy I always ask when I see something gorgeous, unusual and memorable, and the answer is usually these three florists.

Lake Forest Flowers! They understand their clients appreciate a “CREATIVE” result using products that last and reliable customer service. I’ve always experienced consistent high quality of both product and service from this well-run local family business.

My vote is for Lake Forest Flowers. I have been receiving flowers from this great family owned and operated business for roughly 30 years now - including for my wedding. I had never seen before, and have not seen since then, fresh flowers on a wedding cake - just gorgeous!

Lake Forest Flowers has been my favorite source for fresh flowers and floral art for more than 30 years. Beginning with my own spectacular wedding bouquet of rubrum lilies, fiddle fern, freesia and lily of the valley, and 34 years later the amazing floral art arrangements and bridal party bouquets for my son's recent Thanksgiving wedding, this group of talented designers continues to amaze and thrill me. Lake Forest Flowers offers the highest level of service and design innovation. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I love Lake Florest Flowers!!!
