About Us

Spreading Love, Beauty, and Happiness Since 1989
Laura’s Flower Shoppe happily serves the greater Lake County IL area, and its surrounding communities, as a family-owned and operated small business. We exist with the purpose and intention of spreading love, beauty, and happiness, through custom- and hand-made floral arrangements. Whether it be a simple bouquet for an everyday occasion, or an elaborate display of florals for a special event, we do it all!

Each of our arrangements are hand-made, using certified fresh flowers, and personally delivered to every type of residence, business, hospital, funeral home, and place of worship, across a vast service area. Check out the communities we deliver to HERE!

All Sorts of Products for All Sorts of Occasions
As you browse through our website you’ll see that in addition to fresh floral arrangements, we also offer a wide range of products and services, including house plants, gift baskets, non-floral products for sale or rent, and even day-of wedding coordination services.

At Laura’s Flower Shoppe we recognize that life is all things beautiful, stressful, exciting, sad, romantic, tragic, rewarding, discouraging, purposeful, and ever evolving. By offering only the highest quality, unique floral arrangements, products, and services we personally guarantee to add a little bit of love, beauty, and happiness to all that life is.


People, Team, Family
Founded by Joan Vitello, professional florist and design enthusiast, Laura’s Flower Shoppe began with family in mind, having named the shop after her daughter and Godmother. Over the course of 29 years her business flourished due to her expert craftsmanship, love and care for flowers, and great deal of empathy and compassion she has toward her customers and their life events.

Today, the value of family is maintained in high regard, with the addition of a father-daughter team having joined the operations of Laura's Flower Shoppe in January 2018. Tom Barnstable, business management professional and lover of golf and billiards, has a keen eye for financials, business processes, and pursuing a life of ease. His daughter, Andrea Persman, has a talent and passion for all things creative, enjoys engaging with people, and loves to spend all her time with friends and family.

We love our family. Let us share a little love with your family too!
