The New Romantic.

10 Feb

     Gone are the days when a dozen red roses would take one’s breath away. Today’s cosmopolitan couples own a discerning eye for good design, refined colors, and stimulating forms. They look for design objects with histories, fresh products with artistry, and services with philosophies. They will justly apply these principles to the flowers that they will gift for Valentine’s Day. Contemporary floral design proudly flaunts the natural beauty of flowers. Natural colors and unaffected forms are preferred over contrived and uniform arrangements. The new romantic floral design incorporates rich textural elements –such as seeds, berries, and foliages–  in order to delight and charm this sophisticated eye.

Rustic Simplicity

4 Aug

Veronica is a bride who won’t be cringing when she looks at her wedding pictures in twenty years time. Her choice of ivory flowers alongside earthy green notes became a gentle complement to the rustic wooden interior of the Brooklyn Winery, the venue in which Veronica and Max celebrated the first day of their lifelong adventure.


This beautiful simplicity did not lack excitement. Each floral item featured a special detail that indulged the guests’ senses. Succulents and herbs were whimsically included in bouquets and boutonnieres; mason jars were creatively used as chair decorations; vintage bottles added a warm touch to the tables at which great conversations took place.

[fLo rE sta] for MIDOMA

14 Mar

MIDOMA is an exciting concept consisting of a joint Salon, Gallery, and Boutique, all housed together under the same roof. Floresta collaborated with MIDOMA for their new collection entitled “Above + Below”. For this project, MIDOMA gathered a group of artists who explored the creative possibilities of juxtaposing light and dark gothic vintage styles. This resulted in effortlessly embellished beautiful images.

Miriam and Fred’s Intimate Loft Wedding

28 Feb

FlorEsta had the pleasure of creating floral arrangements for Miriam’s and Fred special day. After a consultation with our expert florists, the couple selected refined blue and purple flowers with soft vintage accents. The bride’s bouquet -composed of purple lisianthus, silver brunia, and blue thistle- looked beautiful against the white canvas that was her dress.

Cans and other found objects were used as vases to re-create the simple beauty of past times.
