Upcoming Flower Classes

By:

We’re so excited about tomorrow’s flower class, Autumn Floral Wreaths. This is a first for us; we specialize exclusively in wedding flowers, so our usual work rarely includes wreaths and holiday floral decor. But as you can imagine, we love to create seasonal wreaths like this for our own homes and for holiday entertaining.

If you can’t make it this time, join us next month for Holiday Table Garlands, another floral-design class for the holidays. Check out all our Flower Classes and follow us on Instgram and Facebook for class photos, videos and tips.

Welcoming Beata to our Team!

By:

beata-assistant-weddings-coordinatorMeet Beata Jozefow, our new Assistant Wedding Coordinator. Beata was born and raised in Bialystok, Poland, surrounded by silk flowers.

“It’s funny how being raised around silk-flower decorations, created by my parents, led me to working with real ones!” Beata says.

Right after high school, she followed her dream and moved to the United States. After starting out as a cocktail waitress in a small restaurant, she gained experience in all aspects of the hospitality business, working private and corporate events at high-end venues all over New York City.

Beata has focused on weddings since 2013, when she earned her certification as a wedding and event planning consultant and completed an internship with the David Tutera Wedding Experience Expo.

Branches & Blooms: Flower Class at Bride & Blossom

By:

bride-blossom-team-flower-classFor our latest floral-design workshop, Branches & Blooms, we filled the showroom with vibrant fall flowers and invited the class to get creative with color, shape and texture. We had such a warm, enthusiastic and talented group. We’ve been telling everyone our classes are NYC’s best girls’ night out, but it turns out, they also make a great date night. We were delighted to see more than one gentleman in the showroom this time!

Expert floral stylist, Dawn, charmed the class as she demonstrated technique and shared insider tricks. Here’s one tip that kept coming up: don’t overthink it! (The wine helps with that.) Relax, follow your instincts and experiment. Working with flowers is about using your senses. Get a feel for the way each stem feels in your hand. Notice which colors draw you in, and don’t forget to stop and breathe in the fragrance.

Aisle Style: Floral Arches in Twirl New York’s New Fall Issue

By:

ceremony-floral-decor-twirl-ny-fall

Two of our most romantic ceremony designs appear in Twirl New York’s new issue.

For an enchanting, Brooklyn waterfront wedding, an arch of wisteria and curly willow (#3) held decadent clusters of pink, cream and white flowers. Ruskus vines, entwined with dendrobium orchids trailed down the arch’s side to a moss base. Kris Rae’s beautiful photo captures the garden-like, natural concept of our design, as well as a moment of pure joy and love.

A rustic-branch chuppah (#5), adorned with  the lushest, white hydrangea blossoms, framed a traditional Jewish ceremony at a decadent, Hudson-Valley wedding, photographed by Ryan Brenizer. Aisle Style is a must-see if you’re looking for wedding inspiration – so many gorgeous, creative ideas for walking down the isle of your dreams. Read and download the whole Fall 2015 issue of Twirl NY, and see more from these weddings below.

The Secret of What Makes Us Different – Revealed!

By:

Did you know that we are New York City’s only luxury, floral-design company specializing exclusively in wedding flowers? It’s true, we only do weddings! Our company name makes it pretty clear we cater to brides. In this video, Rachel, Founder of Bride & Blossom, explains how that sets us apart. Get a peak behind the scenes at Gotham Hall and The Plaza Hotel, and watch our team create unique hanging florals and an ethereal white chuppah.

Rachel was inspired to start a floral-design studio after creating all the floral decor for her own wedding. That initial spark of passion informs everything we do. We never lose sight of how much every detail, of every bouquet and arrangement we create, matters.
