A fresh bouquet feels like a lovely indulgence whether you’ve had one delivered, picked one up at the grocery store, or snipped from your own backyard.

Two national purveyors we adore are The Bouqs Co. and Urban Stems. Some local florists are still partially open and arranging for contactless delivery or pickup. Check their websites and Instagrams for details.
