"Founded in 2009, this metropolitan mecca of all things flourishing has built an impeccable reputation based on their seamless delivery and magnificent designs."
It doesn`t matter if you are shopping for a fun, desk-size arrangement to send for a friend`s birthday, or an over-the-top style being gifted to a film or music star, our creative team has thought about all of the possible needs. Also smaller add-ons such as accent plants and better vases are combined with our power styling. The result is a range of unique and original options that are completely Instagram worthy. Of course classic white is the epitome of stylishness and refinement, but also we love the surprising idea of orchids in color. Always exploring and trying new things, we have extended our phalaenopsis selection to include pink and magenta. In cymbidium arrangements, you can order the most eye-catching cinnamon red as well as celery green and a pretty shade of pink. All are as super popular as you might imagine they would be.
Never ones to underestimate the seductive power of luxury flowers, our New York City florists are constantly searching for ways to create romantic floral arrangements with a soulful inflection. This lifestyle designer approach takes note of our client`s lives and the occasions for which they might order deliveries. Seeing the orchid as a visual accent to love and romance is a newer way to consider its range of possibilities. There also is something wonderfully symbolic about sending a long-lasting plant to signal the start of something new. Then it lives and grows symbolically along with a human relationship itself. It is this deeper level of design thinking that informs many of our looks and therefore helping you select gifts that are more appreciated and remembered.
With Manhattan being home to so many global headquarters of financial services corporations and law firms, the stakes are incredibly high.

Because our team lives and works here also, we understand these demanding situations.

Our Clean Look style has become one of New York City`s most popular corporate floral gifts. Its arc of phalaenopsis blooms in white over grass loops and in a clear contemporary planter has become a modern icon.

Our residential service, often contracted for weekly deliveries, serves a large but discreet clientele in the city`s finest residential enclaves. Understanding the size and scope of these fine residences allows our artisans to express their creativity at the highest level with larger pieces and the most bountiful styling achievable. Through the years, a number of these pieces have made their way into our online flower store and become available for anyone to order. A shining example of these sorts of high-end pieces is our Simply Chic arrangement. It is composed of eight super long phalaenopsis stems cascading and overflowing from an elegant clear vase. It is a focal point piece from every side and has been sent to countless well-known names from the creative community. Fashion designers, film stars, TV personalities, singers and musicians, digital and advertising creative directors, editor-in-chiefs, architects and many others.

Always beginning with plants and flowers strong enough to act as the starting point, our design is inspired by the aesthetic beauty of the blooms themselves. Ample research also guides our process. Never content with the status quo and always striving to rei-magine well-known looks, the idea is to help you see things in new ways and love them even more. We are owned-and-operated independently, which is increasingly rare in today`s world of boxed flowers and chain florists on every neighborhood corner. We take special pride in the 5-star reviews we have received on Trustpilot and Yelp. Creating in-house with a team dedicated to innovation and unconventionally high-quality allows us offer an orchid selection with which few NYC flower shops can compete. We are more expensive than others, but we feel it is well worth it in the long run. This strategy has been our philosophy since our founding in 2009, and we intend to continue working with an artisan approach.
Preserving a human scale to our operations where all orchid plants and flowers are individually selected daily by knowledgeable and skilled staff is the most sure-fire quality control we can maintain. In some ways it may be old-world, but we have learned the sort of consistent and dependable results it produces. In order to assure you of the finest, we plan to continue operating in this manner. For clients who order from us with tight deadlines and urgent needs, every effort is made to offer same-day service in as many situations as possible. This includes all of our delivery territory, and our crew will handle your gift with plenty of TLC until it reaches its destination.
One of the questions clients ask is most frequently is: "Someone just sent me an orchid and how do I care for it?" Unliike cut flowers which are best kept away from sunlight and bright lights, phalaenopsis plants enjoy being placed in the sun. For much of the year a south-facing window probably will be best. However in the hottest and most intense moments during summer, it may be best to find a partially sunny window so the light and heat do not become overwhelming. Cooler overnight temperatures are helpful as is humidity. Watering is as simple as placing a small handful of ice cubes at the base of your plant whenever its moss feels dry and nearly crunchy to the touch. Too much water is never good and pouring water over the moss bed does not work. The ice cubes melt slowly and drip through the moss, allowing it time to absorb the water rather than having it run through too quickly. Once you have found the ideal placement and learned how to water properly, in time your plant may re-bloom and live indefinitely.
Our unique combination of the highest quality elements, design that is ahead of the curve and exacting attention to detail creates the sort of alchemy where well-known plants and flowers are transformed to remarkable objects of beauty and distinction. We take a magnifying glass to the details and in our arrangements we strive to achieve proportions that are satisfying to the eye and equally so with the symmetry. Unconventional colorations are available for orders being sent as romantic gestures and our range of Manhattan corporate services is second to none. If you are in a high-pressure situation where only a perfect result will do, we hope you will consider giving us a try. Whether it is a single order for a celebrity or VIP, a weekly service inquiry or a request to design an event, our entire organization is structured to create and deliver the finest orchids available in New York City.
