This bright flower arrangement has been donned “Sunny Day” because the bright contrast of the yellow against the blue is like the bright hot sun against a pure blue sky. June has been quite a rainy month, so we thought it would be a nice touch to make an outrageously bright bouquet available for those of you sending the ever popular “Hope this brightens your day” floral table arrangement.
Stay tuned for the next edition of Flower Arrangement of the Month, and check out the rest of our flower arrangements in NYC to see other examples of colorful and bright flower arrangements for summer!
Summer is OFFICIALLY here. I’ve been saving this post for the day when I could start with that. I realize you might be thinking – wait…is this about floral fashions and floral jewelry, or summer flower arrangements? – and to that I would reply “BOTH!” Imagine my excitement when I was walking down the streets of New York City early one morning with my breakfast (coffee), and I saw a Tiffany’s ad with some beautiful floral jewelry. New York, Tiffany’s, flowers, coffee… amazing.
Summer in New York! Weddings! Flowers! It’s that time of year, and one of the main concerns of the bride and groom (other than living happily ever after together) is that their wedding and reception flow nicely. That flow includes timing, seating, m

You may think that being an NYC florist is all easy breezy smiles all day… and sometimes it is, but don’t be fooled! We are also a group of tough cookies working in and around many dangerous situations. B
etween hand delivering wonderfully large and fragile flower arrangements through zooming traffic in the streets of New York and handling sharp tools, cacti and thorn covered rose stems, we are actually susceptible to many injuries! Luckily, we are trained professionals and don’t find ourselves in troublesome situations very often.
Pets, however, aren’t trained professionals. There are many poisonous plants for pets, and they’re a danger that many pet-owners fail to consider – until their pets become sick.

I’ve been thinking a lot about what to write during this beautiful season for flowers. With the vibrant colors featured in our Summer Collection of flower arrangements, it’s hard not to be inspired, and whenever I am inspired I feel like I hear music! (That could also be because they play the radio downstairs whenever I am designing floral arrangements.) I was also thinking how much I would love to hear some readers’ comments!
So, I want you all to help me come up with a
