ENTERTAINING Featured Garden

Favorite Florist in NYC

Flowers are an unexpected and chic way to add drama to any tablescape. I feel the need to share my New York Florist, so you too can experience what I had.

After having finalized all the details of the dinner party, I needed to make the choice on an amazing florist, that understands elegance, simplicity. Think contemporary with a touch of classic tradition. I discovered the amazing team at Van Vliet and Tramp.

They completely understood the creative direction of the evening!

Before calling any florist, pick your color palette according to the season and theme of the tablescape.
Of course they can make suggestions, however I think it’s best to have an idea of what you would like to do. Similar with clothing, you should have an idea of what you’re looking for….

The selection of flowers was a combination of:

  • Phalaenopsis Orchids
  • Dahlias
  • Calla Lilies
  • Green Hydrangea

The evening was filled with such elegant and classic charm, breath taking tabletop with white and gold details…

 

How to splurge on a budget:

  • select season flowers
  • select flowers with a larger face
  • book a location that’s naturally pretty
  • add candles for decoration so you can use less flower arrangements

    Thank you for the details! Everything looked so gorgeous & clean. I love how the flowers didn’t overwhelm the tablescape, even with the mix of tall arrangements (which I’ve been infatuated with lately–anything tall and slender!) The white and gold is very chic too. Love!

    Great tips on saving. Another I like is the use of small mirrors to dress up less expensive arrangements–depending on the decor –but not necessarily those basic ones made for centerpieces . More like framed ones designed for hanging, but you’d just lay them flat like trays. I always seem to gravitate towards ornate, vintage-y designs 🙂
