Readers' Choice: Which Florist is Your Favorite?

Send us your nominations in time for those Mother's Day purchases.

It's still April, but Mother's Day will be here on April 13 and the prom season is already upon us. Where do you go for a beautiful flower – or fruit – arrangement or corsage? Which florist is the most consistent and uses the freshest blooms?

Just to remind you of the options, here are a few of the florists in Suffield:

K & P Flowers and Gifts, 1052 East Street South.

Pentimento Designs, 175 South Main Street.

Share your suggestions, be it one of the two florists listed above, another florist in town or a business from the surrounding area. Give us your opinions and we'll name the best of the best based on your nominations and votes. 

As a reminder, here's how our Readers' Choice feature works:

  • We'll ask a question about your favorites. 
  • We invite you to post your nominations in the comments below.
  • We hope you'll also spread the word about this to your friends on Facebook and Twitter and get them involved.
  • Submit comments until 5 p.m. Wednesday.


  • We'll take the nominees and post a poll first thing Thursday morning.
  • After the poll starts on Thursday, you'll be able to vote till Friday at 9 a.m.
  • On Saturday, we announce the winner.

This review is all about you — your ideas, your feedback and your voice — so we hope you will chime in and check back.
