The most wonderful time of the year

It finally feels like fall in New York and I'm loving it. This is my favorite time of year for a number of reasons, one of them being the beautiful flowers that are available. In this arrangement I used: dahlia, roses, lisianthus, scabiosa flowers, scabiosa pods and hosta leaves.

When in Doubt ... Sash It

About a month ago, Sarah of ClassicBride hosted a give-away on her blog with one of our fabric flower pieces (pictured below). For a chance to win it, Brides-to-be were asked to leave a comment on what they would use it for: a sash, corsage or hairpiece. There were so many comments! We noticed many of Brides wanted fabric flower sashes, not only for the their own gowns, but they also wanted them for their bridesmaids, flower girls, and rehearsal dinner outfits. We immediately started brainstorming new styles. Below are two finished pieces.

Hugo Boss

A few months ago, Ruth and I spent a day in the Meatpacking District giving-away bouquets for Hugo Boss as a part of the W Magazine Shop W Style day. Our arrangements were on display throughout the store, and we were in front, with a table styled as a mini flower market. We just received these pictures from a staff reporter at W Magazine and wanted to share!

Jungle Theme Event at the Foundry

Last weekend we had a jungle themed party at The Foundry in Long Island City. The space is raw and industrial, and we had a great time decorating it with vines, tropical leaves, ropes, spanish moss, lanterns and hundreds of candles. These are the quick photos that I took before we left, but we hope to have a few professional pictures for you to see soon.

Well I Never...

Last week I found this unusual flower in the market.  The guys in the market called it Isopogen, and apparently the cone-shaped flower in the picture below is produced after the bloom.

Elizabeth and Karim. Classic Wedding style.

Elizabeth and Karim had a gorgeous and intimate April wedding, held at The River Cafe. Elizabeth's inspiration was timeless, romantic and feminine style. She added many sweet details to her table. One of my favorite's was the white crocheted votives, made by her Mom. The wedding also appeared in last Sunday's New York Times!

Bows And Arrows: Expect the Unexpected ...

Bows and Arrows is a must read blog created by Alicia and Adam Rico. After their unforgettable wedding, (which was posted in Brooklyn Bride) they relocated from New York to Alicia's hometown: Dallas, Texas. Once there, they immediately got to work on their dream shop. Bows and Arrows is a fun and discerning mix of Art, Floral Design and Craft. I always find something fresh and interesting here.

I found these tiny vases in the vintage bins at Fishs Eddy. They have a nice selection of vintage items, but these were some of my favorites. They are perfect for tiny blooms, or even a large mum.

Braids and basket weaves

We arranged these 2 pieces for Amanne's table at Sunday's Brooklyn Bride event at BAM. We were inspired by Amanne's West African jewelry and for each piece we used grass to create a unique vase treatment. One was bear grass braided and secured on each each end, the other was grass that we wove together like a basket.

Ethereal Girl.

New Bouquet in shades of white and champagne! Yvonne, who owns Kimera Design offered us her beautiful silks and organza that were to small for her use. We transformed them from scraps to scrumptious. To keep the look modern, the flowers were made to evoke the shapes of roses and poppies, without trying to be too literal or "fake" looking. My favorite parts are the little details like floral stamens and white velvet leaves. Stop by the Kimera boutique for a closer look. This one will be on sale there.

Paint, Print, Collage

Giving the gift of flowers can now last a little longer! Whenever we get a request to send a gift arrangement, we include a handmade note-card, designed by Ruth. These keepsakes are pretty enough to frame!

Bridal Bouquets

This beautiful wedding bouquet was made using a recipe of fresh and fabric flowers. Garden roses and privet berry are paired with coordinating pale gold silk and burnt orange raw silk wired florets. I love that the fabric flowers can be kept as keepsakes for post- wedding projects like making shadow boxes or scrapbooks.

I love how flowers come in so many different shades of white.


We like to use lots of texture and unique flowers when creating bouquets.
