Finding a flower shop in a large city can be difficult. How do you know their arrangements will fit your needs and the flowers will not die after a few hours? Knowing which businesses know their customers and their flowers can mean the difference between a beautiful holiday or a wilted display.
Raimondi’s- Named the Best of Pikesville and Best of Howard County twice, Raimondi’s is the most popular florist in the Baltimore area.
