Roadside Blooms is a funky flower, plant and crystal shop in Park Circle. When designing flowers for about 80 weddings and elopements a year, Roadside Blooms owner and creative director Toni Reale knows it’s sometimes difficult to pour your creative heart into every piece. She gave City Paper her list of songs that remind her of young love and hold a nostalgic place in her heart — just what she needs to hear to be reminded of the sweet roller coaster journey couples are about to embark on. The following five songs help her infuse tenderness into each of her designs.

Listen to the playlist on Spotify:

“Simple Song” – The Shins
“This Must Be The Place” – Talking Heads
“Wedding Song” – Bob Dylan
“Mystifies Me” – Son Volt
“All I Want” – Joni Mitchell
