Yesterday In Bloom New York executed the florals for a design coordinated by the interior design firm Laura Kirar, one of the 30 designers creating innovative “tablescapes” for a gala dinner benefitting the New York School of Design, with special recognition of renowned designer Mario Buatta. The evening – inspired by the “The Prince of Chintz,” a moniker used to refer to Mr. Buatta’s unique style – marked the start of AVENUE Antiques & Art at the Amory Show, which features over 50 deals specializing in high quality art and antiques.Laura Kirar’s team of junior designers requested pure white anemones arranged in the firm’s own bronze pillar holders. First, Parker rendered a sketch for their approval before finalizing the concept which included fishtail palm flowers. The tropical tendrils also became the perfect material for novel and matching napkin ringsWe were thankful to be present for the table setup amongst the likes of designers Eric Cohler, Victoria Hagan, Campion Platt, Susan Nagle, and David Scott. At the end of the day, we are always excited to arrange flowers whether it be our design or your own.
Before the New Year, In Bloom New York traveled north of the city to arrange flowers for a special holiday party at a private home. Our designers tailored the arrangements to suit the interior décor while maintaining a holiday feel.The main hallway boasted two large arrangements combining flowering quince branches, naked seeded eucalyptus, white garden roses, white amaryllis, white hydrangea as well as mini green hydrangea.Parker Voss – one of our designers – between the main hall and dining room arrangements.
The dining room centerpiece incorporated similar elements to the hallway arrangements but with amnesia roses for soft color.The four niches in the library became the perfect display area for four very artful arrangements of red amarayllis and dried cecropia leaves. The result appeared both substantial and sculptural.Instead of a traditional garland for the mantel, we chose a simple yet impactful pairing of red, white and green arrangements using amaryllis and anemones in leaf-wrapped containers.The simplest arrangment such as this fishbowl with amnesia roses gave finishing touches to the upstairs landing/coat-check area.Fresh cut greens like those added to these jardiniers bring any room to life. We also added Spanish moss to the wrought iron chandeliers wrapped in grape vines.Thank you to everyone for all the compliments on our interpretation and display of holiday florals for a wonderful private party!
