Bouquet Recipe: Sweet Succulents

Sweet Succulent Bouquet Recipe

This bouquet recipe from Amanda Reppond’s wedding at the Picnic House in Prospect Park uses a classic pink and green color scheme to achieve a preppy, elegant style with a unique twist. The unexpected pairing of miniature succulents with traditional white roses, accented by splashes of pink and lime from green viburnum and pink lisianthus, make this bouquet as unforgettable as Amanda’s special day.

A Peek Behind the Curtain

Some of you have had the chance to visit us at our sparkling Midtown Manhattan showroom, and hopefully we will soon have the pleasure of hosting those who have not.

Our showroom is where we meet clients for floral and decor design consultations and host really fun parties (we love a good party)!

In order to keep our showroom in tip top shape (clean, organized, and chic), we do all our back-of-house production and design at our studio in Long Island City, Queens. This is where we can really get our hands dirty to create beautiful wedding flower magic. We wanted to share some images from our archives of our home away from home.

Bodega Chic Floral Class Recap

Last week, we held our monthly flower class at our gorgeous showroom in Midtown Manhattan. Our designer Dawn showed the class how to create stylish contemporary arrangements using flowers that are readily available at the corner deli. We were truly inspired by the amount of creativity and talent our students demonstrated (many of them were first timers!). Each interpretation of the lesson was original and really proved that intuition and personality play an integral role in flower arranging. Trust your instincts!

We are currently brewing a batch of new classes for the next few months and cannot be more excited to get the schedule up next week (stay tuned). We will be hosting classes on creating unique succulent terrariums, stunning flower head wreaths and English garden arrangements, to name a few.

Bouquet Recipe: Dramatic Texture in White

In today’s Bouquet Recipe, we used all-white flowers and a touch of greenery to give a classic, white bridal bouquet a fresh look. If this style inspires you, ask your wedding florist for a multi-dimensional bouquet with dramatic texture.

White flowers will never go out of style for weddings, and they look beautiful for any season. When sticking to a monochromatic color palette, the key is to get creative with texture and shapes.

Intimate Wedding at Andy Warhol’s Soho Loft

Before SoHo became a shopping mecca, its cast-iron architecture and cobblestone streets were a bohemian playground for stars of the New York’s art scene. Recently we got a peek at one of downtown’s most storied addresses, Andy Warhol’s Wooster Street Loft.

Now housing the newly-minted Soho Arts Club, this loft was once the home and studio of the famed artist. And, for one magical evening, it was the perfect venue for an intimate wedding.

We set the scene for a candlelit Jewish ceremony with an elegant, four-posted chuppah, draped with sheer ivory fabric. Each front post was adorned with a bouquet of hydrangea, garden and spray roses and phalaenopsis orchid blooms.
