If you're looking for a reliable Florist in the Charles Village area, I highly recommend Gordon's. Their flowers are always beautiful, and from my experience, are long lasting. I've never been disappointed in the years I've frequented their shop. Everything I've ever gotten there, from tulips to lilies to roses, has been gorgeous. Like most full service florists, they are a little bit pricier than some other options, but there's nothing quite like getting a dozen roses arranged by Gordon's.
