this past week we were asked to drop off some flowers for a fabulous party celebrating diane von furstenberg. the event was held at harrison ford's home over looking central park with the most amazing views of the city skyline. we used tons of poppies, showchip garden roses, ranunculus, anenomes, raspberries, meyer lemons, sweetpea, and ladies slippers in the arrangements.
I am totally enamored with the designs from young designer Katie Ermilio. Ermilio, the daughter of a bespoke menswear tailor has the knack! Clearly it's in her blood (her grandfather made clothes for Grace Kelly) but her aesthetic is fresh an bold. I'm obsessed!
From former Editor in Chief of Domino, Deborah Needleman, The Perfectly Imperfect Home, a bookabout how to have a beautiful home that is actually lived in, is an inspiration! I love the fabulous watercolors by Virginia Johnson and the newly realized notion that even though my home isn't always photog ready it doesn't necessarily mean I'm a domestic deviant. Imperfection is perfect, and most of the time adds a little extra charm to a space. Get it here.
the past few days have been a whirlwind with an ugly cold taking over my life last week, family in town, and then the ny gift show this week. however, the gift show has been so much fun for juliet and i to peruse with my momma (also a small business owner) and we passed some surprisingly inspiring things along the way, which we're very excited to incorporate into our styling & designs this year.
i've been meaning to share this amazing photograph with you for some time now. check out the full story behind this amazing installation in the home of florist simone gooch here.
on tuesday night we headed over to city winery along with some of our besties for a beautiful networking event. one of the best parts of the evenings was having the chance to meet the lovely courtney of swiss cottage designs. i don't know how we've never crossed paths before since she's based right here in brooklyn, but i think it will be a match made in heaven. her wedding designs are all beautiful, unique, and clearly a labor of love. we can't wait to have the chance to work with her soon. check out her work here.
we were so thrilled when brooke from brookelyn photography sent over a few shots from a wedding we worked on together at the bowery hotel. jessica & jay tied the knot on halloween weekend and if you remember we had a freak snow storm here in nyc that day. the bowery was the perfect, cozy spot to celebrate a wedding and how amazing are those gorgeous masks they passed out to their guests?! not going to lie i wish i was a guest at this one.
we're a boutique floral and event design company in new york city. we (juliet & sierra) met when we both moved to the big apple in 2007. one day we got to talking, and decided to combine our love for design, flowers, and parties. and so, poppies & posies was born!
every detail of our
fabulous fetes are meticulously designed and,
whenever possible, handcrafted.
our arrangements are inspired
by the organic movement and composition of the country gardens that we both spent sunny summer days in as children. we love what we do and hope you will too!
