Without a doubt, I nominate Park Hill Joyce is the best flower shop in the area. Mike Orlowski and his team design gorgeous arrangements with fresh flowers. However, even more important to me is the frequency in which Mike donates his time, talent, and treasure to the community. I could give countless examples, including one last fall to the MHS Soccer Booster Club. In addition, Mike truly cares about his customers - lending an ear whether you are ordering Sympathy flowers, or for a celebration.

There's no doubt about it. Parkhill Joyce is the best. Mike takes the time with each of his customers and creates an arrangement that's perfect for them. I never go to anyone else and neither should you.

Park Hill Joyce gets my vote. Mike did a wonderful arrangement for my 39th wedding anniversary. My wife was thrilled. Mike always does a great job.
