That day has come for the Jewish community to celebrate its most important day of the year, Yom Kippur. This holy day is meant for purifying the soul and cleansing all your sins before God by fasting for 26 hours. The celebration before and after Yom Kippur are festive meals that ignite the abundant New Year and bless our children. Although this holiday is very serious and comes with much thought and prayer, it has an underlying meaning to symbolize the joy of the New Year and the confidence that God will forgive our sins.
I live in a very Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, NYC. I went on a run last night and happened to notice many Jewish families walking hand in hand, groups were singing Jewish hymns while others were laughing and chasing after each other. Regardless of our cultural differences, we all share common threads:
Who would’ve thought that after only a couple months, between movies in Bryant Park and rooftop happy hours, we would be back to the grind working hard for the money only to remember that autumn is just around the 3<

It was a night of fun, friends, raffles, and a live auction hosted by John Oliver from the Daily Show. See pictures below of the evening:
At Big Apple Florist, we like to think we’re in the business of delivering smiles (and flowers, too!). We love to hear from our happy customers, and this sweet thank you note from a client of ours touched us so much, we asked her if we could share!
Big Apple Florists,
Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers. They exceeded every expectation I had. I always knew you did beautiful work based on the weekly arrangements delivered at ESB, but to see a more personal touch – was just amazing. You guys went above and beyond your call of duty.
…I could go on and on, but I have to get back to work.
Again, thank you.
You guys are the Best!
P.S. I hope you and your staff enjoy the tasty treats as a token of my appreciation.
Thank you so much, Julie! We hope your beautiful flower arrangement lasted longer than those delicious treats did in our shop!
Last week while wearing my flip-flops in the almost 70° weather, I was greeted by a Salvation Army bell-ringer rocking out to a recording of “Feliz Navidad” at the entrance to Grand Central. As I cut through the station to hop on the Times Square Shuttle, I glanced toward Vanderbilt Hall and noticed the kiosks of the Holiday Fair were in full swing. As I neared the Shuttle platform, I found the platform decorated like a candy cane with the train itself advertising the latest Christmas movie.
Check out our lovely flower arrangements on the set of Anderson Cooper’s new daytime talk show, Anderson! Our floral designer Georgeanne created the flower decor using inspiration from Judy Collins’ 1967 album Wildflowers. We think they’re a perfect background setting for Judy Collins’ performance of “Amazing Grace” for Gloria Vanderbilt, if we do say so ourselves:
We love being a part of New York City events like this, and are happy to provide event flowers and floral decor for all occasions! Give us a call (212) 687-3434 for a consultation of your own.
Last week, Big Apple Florist got an amazing opportunity to decorate the NYC set of Anderson Cooper’s brand-new daytime talk show Anderson!
Our flowers can be seen next week in the Monday, September, 19 2011 episode. Anderson’s special guest on Monday will be his fabulous Mom, Gloria Vanderbilt, and will feature a musical performance by Judy Collins – Gloria’s favorite singer! The producers asked that we create a colorful display garden of folk-singing flowers, with our inspiration being Judy Collin’s “Wildflowers” Album.
I recently rejoined the team here at Big Apple Florist and I’ve been entrusted to become the next Big Apple Florist Blogger. I hope in the coming months to educate, inform and entertain you! I am passionate about flowers and I love to share my enthusiasm, so I am going to try to use this blog to introduce the general public to the fascinating world of flowers and plants.
Since 2003 I have worked in many aspects of the floral industry from sales, to design, to management. I first worked at Big Apple in 2007 as primary flower buyer and a floral designer. I left for a few years to try out some other flower studios, recently even making the excursion out to the farthest reaches of northern Queens! And now I’ve happily returned to Big Apple Florist. I’ve had lots of different floral jobs, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and insight.
My favorite aspect of my work, besides just seeing the flowers, is working with customers. I like to get to know people, so I can try to create an arrangement that is really going to make the best impression. [Read more →]
The Internet allows enthusiasts of all types to share their knowledge and excitement with the world, so we thought we would share a few of our favorite Internet hotspots for floral design ideas, plant maintenance and generally getting stuff done with you!
Lindsey, a new addition to the team, can help you with all your floral needs. She knows all the ins and outs of flower arrangements and plants, so if you’re curious how to choose the perfect gift for that special someone, she’s got the answers!
Lindsey’s favorite flower is the calla lily, preferably yellow, but she would have to say that they are beautiful in all colors. In addition to being new to Big Apple Florist, she is new to New York – originally from Georgia. Lindsey’s ready to talk flowers!
Sarah just joined us here at Big Apple Florist, and she can’t wait to share everything you ever wanted to know (and didn’t know you wanted to know!) about flowers, plant care, and anything related. Trivia? Yes. Pop culture? Sometimes. New York romance stories involving bouquets? Definitely. Ancient history facts about plants, flowers, ceremonies, and special events that despite being old are still somehow fascinating? Absolutely!
Sarah’s favorite flower is the hydrangea, especially if she can find a really big, bright pink one. She also loves peach-colored roses on Valentine’s Day and Central Park in the summertime. Originally from California, Sarah’s very excited to be working with the Big Apple’s most gorgeous florist shop!
