Inspirations, The Latest Buzz

Country Couture

Pretty Purples in Lantern Vase

Who says country and couture can’t come together to create a floral collection that is on the one hand elegant and pretty yet on the other, relaxed and comfortable?  This sense of approachable luxury is what we tried to capture in our new Spring/Summer 2013 collection, where rustic vases like antiqued lanterns or hobnail glass jars are paired with luscious hydrangea and peonies.

Dahlias, Ranunculus and Roses

The present trend toward a more casual lifestyle allows us to design looser compositions to mirror what you would do with your own garden cuttings, effortless bouquets that can finish any room of the house.  Sprigs of deep purple clematis, vibrant pink geranium and pale green apple blossoms add a whimsical country touch.

And our lovely orchids, whether they are oncidium or phalaenopsis, are always “planted” in naturally mossed hand-thrown terra cotta pots for that fresh from the nursery touch.

We’re heading into the city on this frigid day to finish our booth at Pier 94 and counting the days until spring!  Will you be walking the New York Gift Show this year?

P.S.  Since we’re stuck selling at the show, we’ll be back next Friday so please stay tuned!

    Your florals are beautiful and I love that they reflect a more casual lifestyle. I have relatives coming in so I am trying to get in for a half day to meet one of my vendors at the Javits…if by some miracle I get an extra hour or two would love to swing by and say hello. Best of luck and hope you have a great show….name of the game, stay warm!

    There isn’t a single arrangement that doesn’t blow me away!!!

    I’m skipping the show this year…reprioritizing things a little. Hoping to attend the stationery show in May instead…just mixing it up!

    Have fun…I know you’ll see lots of familiar faces. Hope to see yours in person soon!
