C O M TABLE & TULIP PHOTO BY GABRIELLA RIGGIERI Flower Power How to design the perfect fl oral arrangement—and cocktail. –Lexi Freidman Girlfriends, unite! Gents, too! There's a new kind of gardening club in town. One that involves fl ower bars and very real bars at Table & Tulip, an award winning fl oral and design event studio in the South End. "We have our own garden," says owner Andrea Halliday. "It's really a sanctuary within the city." And the perfect spot to host a fall outing with a group of friends interested in, well, growing. "What's not to love about learning something new? We set up a bountiful selection of autumn fl owers, textures and unusual vases. Each class is unique and offers whatever is the freshest." That includes the cocktails, which range from mimosas to bloody marys— whatever best pairs with Mother Nature. Classes from $85, 461 Shawmut Ave., BEAN COUNTERS One of the fi rst things you will notice when you walk into Blue Bottle Coffee's shiny new Harvard Square location is that the baristas brew each and every cup by hand. "We're going to weigh out the beans, grind them and make them fresh in that very moment," says Michael Phillips, director of training. The California coffee shop known for its top-shelf quality java is making a splash with smash hits like its cult-following fresh espresso and uniquely brewed, single-origin Oji cold-brewed coffee. 40 Bow St., Cambridge, –Jessica Kasparian COFFEE CRAWL FULL BLOSSOM Puzzle tartan leather satchel Puzzle tartan leather satchel bag, $2,690, by Loewe at bag, $2,690, by Loewe at Striped trapezoid scarf, $795, by Akris at Neiman Marcus GET IN LINE Contoured graphic grids and linear patterns add dimension to your style—without crossing the line.
