+100 they arent cheap but they always make me beautiful arrangements and they last long.
I usually buy my Y"T bouquet's there and drop off a vase a few days beforehand for them to fill- they are very creative.

go to Lakewood florist on the corner of cedar bridge and martin luther, they are cheap and if you get Cathy to make your bouquet it will be the nicest in town hands down. (her mother is a klutz)

They are cheap. I ended up going to Shoprite today. I tried to spend $40 but I only was able to make it to $26!
