The best thing about Wellington’s Twig & Arrow? All of the eco-friendly packaging! Each bouquet of devastatingly gorgeous flowers is wrapped in paper instead of plastic, and biodegradable cups of wet moss are used in lieu of the usual artificial floral foam. If the magic worked by the shop’s talented florists has you feeling inspired, grab a friend and head along to one of Twig & Arrow’s many hands-on floral workshops.
