If you're ever in need of a pick-me-up, sometimes nothing does it better than a bright bouquet of fresh flowers. The energy that flowers bring to your desk, your dinner table or your nightstand (and thus, your life) is unmatched by a cocktail, a batch of cookies, or new clothes–although those are awesome too. When we need a few stems, we head to Church Street Flowers for their expert hand in arranging (they've been doing it for over 25 years!) and gorgeous, ever-changing selection of flora.
