Since late November, In Bloom has been decking the halls with florals at Dolce & Gabbana’s Madison Avenue location. Incorporating live flowers and fruits, the current display features a traditional Sicilian tablescape featuring the Italian fashion house’s own antiques, linens and most importantly - their impeccably tailored clothing. Our floral designers and crew faithfully executed their own design whose aesthetic this season reflected the decadency of a Sicilian dessert table – wine goblets and pastries included.The garland consisted of fifteen feet of gilded holly and laurel garland carefully draped to reveal the embroidered D&G insignia in lace. Fresh clementines and black-tipped wheat topped off the draping. For the tabletop, the design asked for scattered mounds of whole walnuts, hazelnuts and pecans between collections of fresh pomegranates, lemons and oranges. Red and green grape clusters brimmed over an antique ormolu container at the same level as trays of marzipan fruits, candied cherries, cannolis and other favorite Sicilian delights.The antique, predominately green glassware spouted loosely arranged ruby red and black magic roses. The varying shapes and heights of each container provided added interest to the grouping of a single type of flower. Overall, the display turned out to be a delicious mouthful for the eye, and we were thankful to be part of the taste-making.
