The Polls Are Open: Vote for Your Favorite Florist!

We have to know—Classy Flowers, or Heathers' Haus? Who has the BEST BLOOMS in Tinley Park? Vote in our poll!

A favorite florist can be hard to find. Arrangements can be costly, and if the flowers wilt quickly or the delivery misses the mark, it might not seem worth the money.

Until the recipient takes a nice, big sniff and smiles, that is.

 Patch wants to know which place you turn to for the best bouquets around—and competition has been tight. Who puts in the painstaking work of getting your blooms just right—their favorite flowers, the perfect size, the brightest colors? VOTE IN THE POLL BELOW!

VOTE: Readers nominated the options below either in or on Facebook. To cast your vote, select an option in the poll at the bottom of the article. Also make sure to tell us why you picked your favorite in the comments.

Polls will remain open through Aug. 17.

To vote, you must be logged in to your free Patch account. Don't have one? Click "Join" in the upper right corner. The winner will be determined by poll votes only, not reviews or comments.

oh give me a break. i've been watching this contest....and classy votes went up at a consistent rate through the whole contest. heather haus went BOOM in the last two hours. i don't care how many fans you have, you don't get over 700 votes in 2 hours. this whole thing has been a joke. at least i know where to get good flowers without this stupid contest!!
Catie Abels August 18, 2012 at 04:57 AM
only 4 more min and this contest will be over, thank goodness!
Jessica August 18, 2012 at 04:58 AM

Jessica August 18, 2012 at 04:59 AM

Hmmm, I have been a Computer Technician for over 20 years, I know computers inside and out and I can clearly see that Heather House pulled out all stops on cheating, three days in a row. Too bad. We also have had a private investigator working with us throughout this entire contest span. I also clicked on some names, like Maria V, Mary Carumba, Carol Meow, and others and saw all the nasty comments they have ever made on ALL Patch related items, it seems these people are what we call "professional" posters. I will take my results with me back to New York, we gather information on all contests that have a questionable outcome. Or should I say votes being entered in outrageous numbers in a limited amount of time. Needless to say, this contest could have been done for publicity sake? That too is what we will check into. Too bad the winner had to cheat so aggressively to win. By the way i didn't vote for anyone, I am from New York, I was just hired to investigate this contest. There is no use in anyone deleting any comments anywhere everything has been screen captured, dated and saved. Too bad for the winner, they may be paying in the end.

Hey Eric S, This is the biggest crock of BS I ever read in my life. Have fun playing with your computer in your mama's basement you little weiner. Your the biggest joke alive.
Society of American Florists August 18, 2012 at 11:35 AM
Congratulations on your Victory! Heather's Haus Florist Officially Voted #1 Florist!
Alice H. AIFD August 18, 2012 at 12:02 PM
Now that's funny! Anyone in our Industry knows that above statement is falsified. Why would they care about a Florist In Tinley, they have bigger fish to fry then this contest. Classy Flowers is the best they don't need a contest to prove it, especially one that they didn't want to be a part of in the first place and they have made that known from the start.
Summer August 18, 2012 at 01:08 PM
!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO HEATHER HAUS !!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE MY FLORIST! I am very saddened at how ugly, cheap and guvenile this contest became in the past weeks. it sure did take the fun out of this contest! Thanks Penny and team for all of the beautiful flowers you have created for me over the years! #1 FLORIST ~~~ YAH !!!!
Raymond Royal August 18, 2012 at 02:31 PM
First and for most as a member of Society of American Florist, I dont think that they would care about Heather Haus, Second of all the only way you won was by cheating and trust me I have been in contact with New York
Kelly R August 18, 2012 at 03:47 PM
Classy Flowers received MORE votes everyday throughout the entire contest until especially the last hour! Not one day did Heather Haus go ahead until that last day of time. I've been watching this ridiculous contest from the beginning and have to say that if anyone ever visited both websites & facebook pages, you would see who the best florist would have been hands down. I'm sure this attributes to how many votes Classy received all the way through. Or just drive by & visit both places, their storefronts are totally different. I've never seen discount signs in Classy Flowers windows. So disappointed at how things were run.
Tinley Resident August 19, 2012 at 02:29 PM
Kelly R. That's not entirely true. When I went to bed the night before the contest ended Heather's Haus was ahead by over 120 votes.  In the end, Classy had admirably cut that deficit in half. So, A for effort. I'm guessing it might have been the email blast that helped cut the Heather's Haus winning margin down to only 60 votes. The other thing I would like to add is that I have always admired when, even in bitterly fought political races, when the voting is done, the loser graciously concedes and offers congratulations to the victor. The race is over and now it is time to move forward. God Bless
