Flowers are an unexpected and chic way to add drama to any tablescape. I feel the need to share my New York Florist, so you too can experience what I had.
After having finalized all the details of the dinner party, I needed to make the choice on an amazing florist, that understands elegance, simplicity. Think contemporary with a touch of classic tradition. I discovered the amazing team at Van Vliet and Tramp.
They completely understood the creative direction of the evening!
Before calling any florist, pick your color palette according to the season and theme of the tablescape.
Of course they can make suggestions, however I think it’s best to have an idea of what you would like to do. Similar with clothing, you should have an idea of what you’re looking for….

The selection of flowers was a combination of:
- Phalaenopsis Orchids
- Calla Lilies
- Green Hydrangea
The evening was filled with such elegant and classic charm, breath taking tabletop with white and gold details…
How to splurge on a budget:
- select season flowers
- select flowers with a larger face
- book a location that’s naturally pretty
- add candles for decoration so you can use less flower arrangements

A peony represents wealth and honor and expresses love and romance.
My season flower of the moment is the pink peony. And I thought you guys might share the admiration for its beauty. So, what is it about Pink Peonies?
The traditional floral symbol of China, the state flower of Indiana, and the 12th wedding anniversary flower, peonies are known as the flower of riches and honor. With their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and prosperity and are regarded as an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage.
The beautiful peony flower has long been a favorite of Asian artists. It appears not only in painting but poetry and literature as well. It is a frequent motif in Chinese art, featured on screen paintings, clothing and woodblocks. The peony is also a much-loved subject of Japanese artists, who have used it to adorn tapestries and porcelain. European artists, such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Vincent van Gogh, also sought to capture the peony’s beauty on canvas.
In honor of #FlowerFriday , I’m sharing a little DIY for a beautiful flower arrangement:
