Elena did the flowers for our wedding. The bridal bouquet was very nice and also the piece we used for our ceremony. She had the colour scheme spot on and was very flexible with last minute changes. Thanks for doing our flowers!May 30, 2016Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have been writing a blog about flowers for many years, interviewing florists initially in Paris, then Montreal and Rome, and now NYC. I continue to do so, but have also re-trained to and now my own floral business.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Small to medium size events constitute the majority of our work. We also deliver bouquets and arrangements for special occasions, and do regular subscriptions ofr both homes and officies.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Seasonality is so important - wanting peonies in February only leads to very travelled blooms - and as with food. Constance Spry so rightfully said way back in the 50's "I am sure there are adequate though not good reasons for the fact that if one eats fish at the seaside, more often than not it has had a look at London before being served up in its home town - misguided travel which may have broadened its mind, but not improved the quality as food". The same can be said for New York blooms :)
