It’s not been an easy few months. We’ve seen our neighborhoods and our lives change completely, in what feels like the blink of an eye. Now, more than ever, it’s important that we hold onto our traditions, and celebrate at every opportunity, with any excuse. Luckily, Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Send your mom, aunt, stepmom, guardian, or woman who raised you some flowers this weekend and bask in the glow of doing something kind (and supporting a local business while you’re at it).

Order a tasteful bouquet from Greenpoint Floral, still available for limited delivery and pick-up.

We don’t think you’ll have any problems.
