Treat Your Logo Like A Piece of Art

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

In the December 2008 issue of the SAF Floral Management magazine, our member florist Foxgloves & Ivy Floral Design (www.foxgloves.biz), spoke about their green-certified new design space and richly detailed new logo.
“It’s instant impact,” says proprietor Larry Hammack, AIFD. “But it’s not in-your-face marketing because the logo is true artwork.”

We here, at bbrooks fine flowers, couldn’t agree more.

Our NYC-based member Artfool was featured in Elegant Bride

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

Artfool’s in NYCOur NYC-based member florist, Artfool, was featured in the Winter 2009 edition of Elegant Bride.  Artfool’s Matthew Robbins created the arrangements for the wedding of Evelyn Vera and Joel McKoan, held in the Italian Renaissance-inspired gardens of the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in Katonah, NY.  Robbins worked with the pair to incorporate the natural beauty of the site, choosing flowers in muted pinks, peaches and greens.  The bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids consisted of peonies, orchids, hydrangeas and roses.

For the tented reception, centerpieces with these same, more colorful varieties plus sweet peas and ranunculus were used.  A single orchid on each napkin and flowering garlands with ribbon wrapped around the poles of the tent finished Robbins’ design. www.artfool.com

Seaport Flowers was featured in a gorgeous layout in Martha Stewart

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Amy Gardella of Seaport Flowers was featured in a gorgeous layout in Martha Stewart Weddings Winter 2009 issue.  Crisp green and white images of lady slipper and cymbidium orchids, snowball viburnum, bells of Ireland, asclepias pods and accents of panicum grass are an enticement to the eye.

The contrast between the fullness of the garden style arrangements and the clean simple lines of the place settings, white linens and chairs set the mood for a delightful brunch or light luncheon.  “Here’s to the Ladies (and Gentlemen) Who Lunch.” www.seaportflowers.com
