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.

Here is a link for patch.com's terms of use: http://lakewood-ohio.patch.com/terms Stantons Touch has closed its doors, They will always be the best florist Lakewood has ever had. In second place I would choose "Vase2Vase"...open for business and ready to serve with a smile and amazing customer service, beautiful fresh flowers and amazing talent.

My vote would have to go to "Vase 2 Vase". I've lived in Lakewood for many years and have had the pleasure of doing business with Stantons Touch, they were the BEST in town, "Vase 2 Vase" has proven they have the touch. Count this as my vote. Thank you Patch Lakewood
