New Year’s resolutions have you abstaining from alcohol, cookies, and laughing (hey, crow’s-feet are an epidemic in some countries).
Don’t be so hard on yourself, kiddo. Stop and smell the roses.
Start at Christine Noelle Design, a petite new Gold Coast flower studio bursting with ever-changing, fresh-cut blooms delivered daily from all over the globe (Holland, New Zealand, South America) and from sustainable local farms.
The staff of floral enthusiasts, visual artists, and designers will school you on the origins of passion vine flowers, caring for fern curls, and elegantly arranging orchids. They’ll even track down that tuberose you drooled over on vacation. You’ll walk away with a hand-tied bouquet or custom arrangement.
Floral design and arranging workshops are also available.
Better round up your buds.
Christine Noelle Design, 106 West Oak Street, between Clark Street and LaSalle Boulevard (312-475-1500 or christinenoelledesign.com).
