Earlier this season we found ourselves back in the studio with photographer Vanessa K Rees to do our winter holiday photo shoot. Our creative team trekked our precious floral into Brooklyn where we spent the day playing with flowers and listening to the best holiday music Pandora has to offer.
The accents of cedar and eucalyptus make this a timeless christmas bouquet. See more here.
We love the addition of the blue thistle in this rustic holiday bouquet.
This season we’re obsessed with red peonies. We even feature them in one of our holiday bouquets, available here. See more on this bridal bouquet here.

The pink roses and intricate design brings a nice twist to this holiday bouquet.
We’re a few days late in the game on welcoming December, but we’re no less excited to do so. The winter holidays are a special time of year for us as we go beyond luxury floral and provide our clients with seasonal lighting and decor as well. Since Thanksgiving ended we’ve been running around each of our cities decking halls and trimming trees, and things are getting festive. All month long we’ll be updating the blog with our seasonal work, gift guides, inspirations and more. Honestly, can you think of a better month to end the year on? We can’t either. Cheers!

Location location location. You don’t need to bunker down in a barn to give yourself the fall experience. Use your wedding shoot as an opportunity to get out in nature and get those rustic shots. This way you still get your fall fix without compromising on the venue of your dreams.

Color Palette. We are all familiar with the traditional oranges, yellows, and browns that Thanksgiving brings, but in no way do you have to be tied down to that. Explore purples, burgundies, greens, whites and creams as a luxurious alternative to this holiday’s decor.

Harvest it. Trending again is the addition of rustic fruits and vegetables to wedding floral. Pomegranates, tomatoes, kumquats, and apples and make beautiful addition to bouquets and centerpieces while still remaining within the color palette.

Get Rustic. There are so many unique florals available in the fall that no one should feel obligated to work with mums (not that we don’t love them!) Varietals like astilbe, scabiosa pods, and seeded eucalyptus all make great great rustic accents to bouquets, perfect for a Thanksgiving wedding.

Treat your palate! Everyone looks forward to Thanksgiving cuisine. There are endless opportunities for comfort food to make to take center stage at your wedding. Consider featuring apples, butternut squash and heartier vegetables throughout the course – it is the harvest season after all. Dress up the table with more floral accents and you’ll have yourself a spread fit for a king. Or bride.

Although it has never gone out of style, we’ve seen quite the increase in gold accents, decor, and themes over the past year. We’re enchanted by the idea of this timeless favorite taking center stage for your Thanksgiving table. Pair it with whites, blacks and fresh shades of green for a sophisticated and modern setting.

7. For floral we recommend sticking with creams, whites and greens. Pair some golden gourds with hypericum, lisianthus, roses or seeded eucalyptus and you’ll not only have a uniquely gorgeous Thanksgiving centerpiece, but a perfect conversation starter as well.

We recently teamed up with landscape designer Kimberly Von Koontz to create a plant installation at Sotheby’s in Manhattan. We covered an entire wall with layers of ivy plants, and wrapped the room’s support columns in moss. The end result was an incredible indoor garden and we’re really excited to have been able to work on this project. Here are some behind the scenes shots of the installation in progress.

Aranthera – more commonly known as James Storie Orchid – is a uniquely shaped orchid varietal that boasts more height than its more common brothers and sisters.
We love seeing these guys in large centerpieces – either as a delicate accent or on their own. They bring a certain sophisticated rustic touch to a piece, which makes them perfect for fall weddings or cozy entranceways.
Tips for use: Don’t let their height fool you – use the small laterals of this varietal in low pieces & bud vases to add texture and bright color.
