A few things; I was really excited about some amazing Star of Bethlehem flowers I got last week, and after the wedding on Saturday I played with the leftovers to make this bouquet. A bit darker than what most of my clients look for, but my favorite palette...which is to say a bit more oriented for Fall. I tied it with a vintage velour ribbon and ... moseying next door to Erie Basin, picked out a little crescent moon stick pin to secure it. I wish all bouquets came adorned with a little gem like this. It sort of makes for a nice keepsake when your done with all the hoopla, you know?

Also, I went to the NY gift fair this morning in search of a clear thin glass vessel which in my head looks like this:
No dice. This vessel (for a wedding in Sept.) is becoming the bane of my existence.

Lastly some lady friends are coming down tomorrow with Susan and we're off to have lunch and hunt down some new perfume for Karen. I trying to think of a good lunch spot...they've been to Tea & Sympathy (my favorite) and Spotted Pig on past visits...any suggestions?

1) mmm... go someplace GRAND for lunch tomorrow. all the uppity places have fantastic lunch menus.

2) i love how all tea places have "sympathy" in the name.

3) you know i could make a vessel like that for you! just ask!

4) i was sad that things didn't work out today and that you couldn't come by. it ended up being very "w(h)ine and sympathy". i won't bring it up again...

Those bouquets are super fabtastic. So lovely.

What about the outdoor lunch spot by the Fulton pier (I think Rice caters it) - awesome fish tacos and fish and chips, plus excellent beer and wine.

Or Habana Outpost in Fort Greene - so goooood. Redonk, I'm telling you.

That may be my favorite bouquet yet! Ethereal bliss! If there can be such a thing....
we're trying to figure out how to get up there sometime over the holidays. Are you booked solid? We're needing a getaway.

hmm...I think I saw a similar vessel to what you seek in my catalogue from the January NY gift show from a company called Comptoire de Famille. Also try Kiss that Frog, although the necks might be too narrow for floral:
