We were excited when asked again by Bridal Guide Magazine to create a winter bouquet for their January/February edition. We decided to embrace the winter blues and create a bouquet of deep purples with touches of blue that created an unexpected winter bouquet.
The bouquet consisted of purple hydrangea, Japanese blue delphinium, purple lisianthus and blue gentiana. The combination of flowers gave the bouquet a very lush and textured look without it being too over powering. The colors speak for themselves and made for a beautiful winter clutch.
The Hispanic Society held their annual Fall Gala this past October 5, 2010 at 583 Park Avenue. Since its founding in 1904, the Hispanic Society has promoted the study of the rich arts and culture of Spain and its areas of influence throughout the world and Latin America.
MF Productions seamlessly organized the event, honoring the following individuals and institutions for their exceptional contribution to the Hispanic arts:
Fundación Vallelongo, Fundación Juntos Actuando por la Superación, A.C & Javier Godo, Count of GodoThe gala kicked off with cocktails in the arcade of 583 Park Avenue. The color palette for the evening revolved around the soft greens of antique hydrangeas along with dusty tones of orange & creams. In Bloom decorated the music-filled arcade with two large bar arrangements consisting of camellia leaves, green hanging amaranthus, rust-colored dahlias as well as touches of orange ranunculus and mint roses.The eight cocktail tables each glowed with three mercury tea lights positioned around a small julep cup arrangement of dark greens, orange dahlias and ranuclus with sprigs of lisianthus.In Bloom found inspiration for the centerpieces in a floral motif painted on an antique dish from the Hispanic Society's art collection. Our designers aimed to translate a painterly quality to the combination of antique hydrangeas, orange ranunculus, yellow alstromeria, rust colored dahlias, mint & buttercup roses as well as delicate, scented geranium leaves.We were pleased to achieve our stylistic goals without obstructing the guest and patrons' views of fellow attendees across the table. Like all things fun, the mingling and conversation lasted until the music stopped and the candles burned low.
This past December, In Bloom New York had the pleasure of working on an exciting holiday party at a Soho Residence. The gracious host had requested a decorated tree, a large table display and a few arrangements throughout the apartment. To our delight, his only specification was to use all white.
Our team of designers began sketching ideas for the tree. We knew that we we wanted something different, monochromatic and avant garde to keep consistent with the design of the apartment. These beautiful birds found at Bergdorf Good inspired us all and lead the design of the event.
We decked the tree with all silver, white and mercury ornaments of different sizes and design to bring texture to the tree. To make the tree appear full, we added silk silver magnolia flowers as well as over fifty stems of fresh white hydrangeas (use green tubes filled with water to keep flowers hydrated or allow to dry naturally). For a touch of elegance and a small pop of color, we added small gold Fabrege eggs with ruby colored crystals.
To complete, we created a "birds nest" at the top of the tree using white birch branches. Instead of the traditional tree topper, we placed a large bird perched in his nest and used silver lame fabric purchased at Mood Fabrics as the tree skirt.
The idea for the main table installation was to separate the all white arrangements by using various types of flowers and vases to create texture and depth. The table was anchored by a centered tall white birch arrangement with numerous arrangements on both sides. Pussy willow served as the "runner" for the table and broke up the vases nicely. White hydrangeas, tulips, lisianthus, vanda orchids, peonies, calla lilies, ranunculus, hyacinths, and amaryllis were arranged in different sizes of glass and mercury vases.
Small silver birds were topped the arrangements and tied the theme together.
The use of a single type of flower in each vase accentuated the difference between the blooms and was very dramatic.
We completed our Lush Winter Wonderland with a few arrangements of peonies, amaryllis, and tulips scattered throughout the apartment and bathrooms.
