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!
This past March, Interview Magazine hosted a special fete in honor of their new president Dan Ragone at De Santos restaurant in the West Village. Interview approached us looking for simple yet elegant arrangements for their intimate dinner. Inspired by both the rustic, Tuscan menu and décor of the restaurant, we put together an ensemble of small,white arrangements for the dinner tables as well as flowering branches for the bar and entranceway.
For the entrance table, guests entered the dinner greeted by a tall arrangement of white cherry blossoms. Additional flowering pear branch arrangements decorated each corner of the bar.Small arrangements of white Ranunuclus, Hydrangeas, Lisianthus, Ginestra and Bouvardia were placed on the dinner tables in alternating heights and sizes. Each arrangement used only one type of white flower to give a clean, chic look. See below for more photos and a link to Interview Magazine's write up. Enjoy!
In Bloom New York had the pleasure of participating in the Wedding Salon two weeks ago at the Roosevelt Hotel. We were very excited about this event because it was a great opportunity to meet new brides and vendors in the New York City area. The Wedding Salon is a great event for a florist to showcase their ability because of the opportunity to design a cohesive table with all the components: chairs, place settings, centerpiece, etc.Immediately, we knew that we wanted to keep the design whimsical with a garden-like feel and to let the gorgeous flowers speak for themselves. The main centerpiece featured a lush mix of green & white Hydrangeas, pink, white & buttercup Ranunculus, hanging green Amaranthus, white & ivory Garden Roses, mint Roses, fuchsia & light pink Peonies and sprigs of mint. We arranged these full flowers in an antiqued white urn set atop a pedestal covered in moss and twisting wisteria branches. Silver glittered birds adorned the centerpiece; we also perched them on the bride and groom's chairs along with Italian Ruscus vines, continuing the garden theme of the table.We set the table for six using gorgeous vintage-inspired floral plates and gold-rimmed chargers. We chose glassware with gold accents and ornate flatware that complemented the colors of the table beautifully. Stephanie Somodi from Designing the Most Inviting Day created a phenomenal table card along with seating cards that we placed in front of each guest's plate. We loved working with Stephanie who grasped the concept of our design in her creation.The table also included tea lights of varying heights along with sterling silver & mercury julep cups filled with Peonies, Ranunculus, Jasmine, Lilac, mint sprigs and Garden Roses.Thank you again to Stephanie Somodi for the beautiful handmade stationary. Special thanks to Brad Schrager Photography for your beautiful images of our table!
