Don't see your favorite place? Tell us in the comments section. Have a favorite in the next town over? Vote for the best florist in Bellevue, too.

Because our poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be based on a point system in which poll results and Patch Place ratings are weighted equally. In the event of a tie, the Patch editor will determine the winner based on comments and reviews on Patch Places. For full contest details, see the attached PDF with the rules. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

Mercer Island Florist is a welcoming, wonderful family business. Dianne Larsen is talented, warm and creative. She creates ingenious arrangements that are certain to take your breath away. Her staff is inviting and friendly and always willing to help. Dianne is certainly one of the best florists in the state, if not the country. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
