North Fork Patch readers have decided the winner of this week's Readers' Choice poll.
Their choice for best florist is Ivy League Flowers & Gifts of Southold.
Readers’ Choice is a weekly feature where we ask you to tell us your top picks. Each Monday we’ll list our nominees — this week was florists — and ask for your recommendation.
Here are a few comments on local florists and the poll results:
"Ivy league Florist did the most beautiful arrangement of rustic flowers for one of our brides. They were great about working with her ideas. We have also ordered lovely arrangements for customers from Shelter Island and we love, love, love Clawflowers for the most beautiful herb arrangements and unique planters. And we are still exploring." — Deborah Pittorino
"Ivy League created beautiful floral arrangements for my daughters wedding last July. My daughter did not want the traditional arrangements but instead requested a floral display using 3 size mason jars on each table. The arrangements were creative and beautiful, just what my daughter requested." — Diane W.
"CJ VanBourdondien is awesome but not doing Retail Sales. Art and group at Ivy League are wonderful. They take very good care of our family no matter how small or big the request! From holding my son's hand while he ordered flowers for the first time to getting my wonderful neighbor gorgeous flowers as she relocated to Hawaii." — Sandy De Long
