The Good Life: Personal Flower Shopping

I once had a boyfriend who gave me a birthday bouquet arranged in a colander. It was like two presents in one.


I once had a boyfriend who gave me a birthday bouquet arranged in a colander. It was like two presents in one. These days, I do my own flower shopping. My favorite place for takeout flora is the Reading Terminal Market’s newly redesigned Market Blooms, which feels very much like a Parisian marché kiosk gone modern, right down to its blond wood shelves displaying sleek glass vases that double as, well, vases.
