This Little Piggy Goes to the Market

after more than 10 years of visiting the flower market (often at the wee hours of the morning) you begin to look at some of the people there as a second family. an interesting, eclectic mix of people who begin their day at an hour when most people are either still sleeping or finishing up the night before.
so as my family grew to include this little guy we often make the early morning trip together. he loves it even though he is shying away from the camera here he spends most of his time flirting with anyone who will have him.
it makes those early mornings surrounded by beautiful flowers just a little more beautiful.


Spring has sprung?!?!!?

it's hard to believe that it's officially spring with this weather we are having in nyc, but the spring blooms are abundant in the flower market and i just thought i would share a few that i saw and thought were stunners.

these ranunculus are the softest, most subtle shade of pink they almost look like they have been dusted with powder. the petals go on forever and are perfect alone or mixed with something equally as beautiful and sweet.

i never tire of seeing poppies...mainly because they have a limited season and working with them can be a challenge. there is a trick to getting them to open and show their true brilliance and it takes some patience to allow it to happen naturally...once they are open there is a limited time to enjoy.

ah tulips, there are so many amazing and unique varieties that it's hard to choose a favorite. and while typically i go for double or fringe tulips as my favorites i do love the simplicity of these ronaldo tulips...the deep purple color of these makes them a winner!


Brides New York

i've already told you how much i loved working with Nyssa and Chris and how beautiful their wedding turned out to be - in every way, not just the flowers. i wasn't the only one who thought so..Bride's New York featured their wedding in their Spring/Summer issue on newsstands now.
the wedding was truly beautiful and the photos by Carlos Andres Varela are breathtaking. the day went off without a hitch, due in large part to the seamless coordination provided by Roey Mizrahi...she makes it look effortless. i was thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful day that celebrated such a wonderful couple.
