Flower etiquette has changed dramatically over time. But the type you give still sends a message. - The Washington Post

I’m Jewish, so I would send an edible arrangement,” she says. Amy Merrick, a flower designer who ran her own studio in Brooklyn and now focuses on events and teaching, says she’s found that many customers don’t have a very good knowledge of the varieties of flowers and place more importance on the style or mood of their arrangements. “The average person does have an interest in what flowers represent, but not in the historical context,” she says. People are sending their own messages, choosing them based on the personality of the recipient and the personality of the flowers. “I think buying a bunch of daisies signifies this is a sweet, free-spirited personality, whereas an orchid has a more elegant feel to it,” Merrick says.Tif Hunter Daisies are good to send to someone who has a casual, free-spirited style, says Amy Merrick in her new book “On Flowers,” just published by Artisan Books. In her new book “On Flowers: Lessons from an Accidental Florist” Merrick observes one of the mysteries of a florist’s life. Though she spends her days arranging thoughtful bouquets and compositions for others, “it is an unwritten law of the universe that no one ever sends a florist flowers” she writes. Are they afraid they would be judged or that their message would be messed up? “I w...

Brooklyn Botanic Garden has a new selfie spot (and some new plants too) - Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Brooklyn just got a new selfie hot spot.When Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Cherry Esplanade is bursting with springtime blossoms, the hilltop directly above it will surely become a popular place to snap smiling self portraits. After the Cherry Blossom Festival is over and the famous flowers are gone, 34 newly planted crape myrtle trees on the previously undeveloped hill will bloom. Their white, pale pink and lavender flowers will likely wind up in countless summer and fall photographs. The Robert W. Wilson Overlook, as the hilltop is called, has just been landscaped with more than 40,000 new plants. It now has sculptural retaining walls and a gently inclined 600-foot-long pathway with switchbacks that’s accessible to visitors with limited mobility. The Robert W. Wilson Overlook has a fully accessible walkway. Eagle photo by Paul Frangipane One switchback has a seating area for visitors who want to gaze down on the Cranford Rose Garden. Another has a view of the Cherry Walk, which runs alon...

Flowers Become an Unlikely Means to Discuss Identity and Politics - Hyperallergic

Bundith Phundombatlert’s project “Sunny Garden in Blue: Stories from the Carribean to Brooklyn” (2018-present), collects stories from six men and women, all immigrants, about plants that have had significant meaning in their lives. Phundombatlert juxtaposed his drawings of the participants with scientific drawings and diagrams of the plants, and the stories. The diagrams and white text on a blue background recall high school textbooks. The stories themselves, as well as the thought of what these plants have seen and even survived, is powerful and worth sharing; their installation in a gallery setting is less so.From left to right: Bundith Phunsombatlert, Sunny Garden in Blue: Stories from the Caribbean to Brooklyn (2018-ongoing), archival digital print on paper, 12 works: 14 ¼ x 20 inches each, 17 x 22 ¾ inches framed (courtesy of the artist); David Rios Ferreira, “Do things my own way darling” (2018), gouache, screen printing ink, and collage on paper, 44 x 61 inches (courtesy of the artist, photo by Stefan Hagen)Diana Sofia Lozano, “SubRosa” (2019), foam, aqua resin, fiberglass, pigment, wax, and flocking, 24 x 18 x 18 inches (courtesy of the artist, photo by Stefan Hagen)But these are minor quibbles compared to the surprises in store. In Lina Iris Viktor’s mixed-media painting “Second” (2017-18), a Black woman with a blue bob haircut is wearing a black mask. She’s in a seated position, but seems to be floating above the floor. Her side-eyed gaze radiates a powerful combination of seduction, contempt, and boredom. She has gilded angel wings, and holds a flower.Across the room is Simonette Quamina’s “Confirmation in Victoria’s Regine” (2018), a collaged print on a canvas shaped like a jagged puzzle piece. The gray-scale piece is full of spiky plants, or small trees whose roots could probably curl tightly enough around ankles to trip anyone who dares to walk amid them.Derrick Adams, “Figure Walking into the Light 24” (2018), acrylic paint, pencil, and fabric on paper, 24 x 18 inches (courtesy of the artist)More menace greeted me around the corner, in a rope with the world’s creepiest hair clip cinching the center. In Diana Sofia Lozano’s “SubRosa” (2019), the thorny, green stems of roses became claws. You won’t find relief in the petals either; thick and velvety, they resemble a mouth that could swallow the viewer. Every part of this flower inspires fear: The hair clip resembles a noose, perhaps for a victim choked by femininity.Other works are more ambiguous, and, in some cases, seemed inscrutable to me. Derrick Adams’s paint-and-textile collage, “A Figure Walking Into the Light 24” (2018), is a quasi-cubist profile of a Black man wearing a flower-print shirt. He appears to be immersed in contemplation, melancholy but determined. William Villalongo uses velvet as his canvas for “Brother, Brother” (2019). Small slashes in the velvet reveal multiple floral, plant, and insect motifs underneath; I saw daisy petals, geodes, statues, and African masks. Glimpsing t...

Where to find flowers at NYC restaurants, bars and coffee shops - Time Out

Cafe Erzulie came up with an idea to combine Reyes’ shop with its offerings, expanding the joint feeling of community in both spaces. 894 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11206 Sycamore Bar + Flower Shop This South Brooklyn bar operates by a Charles Bukowski quote that goes, “the people look like flowers at last.” For a moment, you might really feel like one, when you’re in the presence of such a special, neighborhood spot. The cozy, Ditmas Park bar has fries, checkerboard floors, board games, and, yes, flowers. The attached shop is called Honeysuckle Hill, which sells bouquets and claims to be Brooklyn’s “only flower shop in a bar.” 1118 Cortelyou Rd, Brooklyn, NY 11218 Sounds Sounds is a design shop selling joyful, colorful ceramics, jewelry, incense holders and zines that also function as a coffee bar with all the artisanal caffeine options, teas and, yes, even a slushie machine. But at the front, you’ll also find some of our favorite flowers in the city: lurid-colored dried flowers that look like Cheetos, orchids, and more. The team just added a loyalty cards for stems; if you spend $90, you’ll receive $10 to spend on stems the next time you come in. Oh, and its here you'll find one of the best backyards at a Brooklyn coffee shop, filled with more plants. 157 7th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215 La Mercerie At this gorgeous navy SoHo French restaurant, flowers play a huge role in the feeling of aspirational grandeur, noticeably crafted by the same design team behind other glamorous Manhattan hits like Lafayette and Le Coucou. La Mercerie also shares its home with Roman and Williams Guild, a shop selling assorted wares (many of which that diners use during service) and its very own in-house flower shop called Emily Thompson Flowers. We love its tagline, "Fleeting beauty you can take out into the world." Francophiles may enjoy bringing home some of the ritz from La Mercerie to style their homes with. 53 Howard St, New York, NY 10013 Bohaus Founded in 2016, this flower shop with single-origin coffee focuses on fresh cut flowers (available as grab ‘n go, both by the stem and a bouquet) as well as dried flowers, succulents, air plants and other houseplant options that don’t try and price gouge. The space may be small but its charming in the fine, verdant details. 406 Marcus Garvey Blvd, Brooklyn, NY 11216 LRoom Cafe An Instagram-bait paradise, known for drinks with edible glitter and pastries shaped like fruits. LRoom both offers flowers for sale and incorporated into its desserts. For cherry blossom season LRoom had limited-edition pale pink sweets with cherry blossoms as an ingredient. Each table at LRoom is also garnished by a single, floating pink rose. 41 W 14th St, New York, NY 10011 Homecoming This is one of Greenpoint’s coolest coffee spots, despite the fact that there is basically no seating. Think of Homecoming as your one-stop shop for fancy chocolates, great coffee, artist-designed weed pipes and flowers offered by the stem. 107 Franklin St, Brooklyn, NY 11222 The Fleur Room / Putnam & Putnam...

How to Cook a Meal (Almost) Entirely Out of Flowers - The New York Times

Elizabeth Roberts, the architect known for her light-filled, thoughtfully reworked Brooklyn brownstones, to design the rest. The result is a high-ceilinged oasis on 26th Street in Manhattan, a stone’s throw from the flower district, bedecked in pale wood and Patricia Urquiola chairs imported from Italy. The space, Il Fiorista, which opened yesterday, doesn’t so much look like a bouquet of flowers — rather, it offers the calming, rapturous effect of smelling one.This is the couple’s first restaurant project: Before they moved from Milan to New York two years ago, he worked in private equity, and she was a law professor. But when Alessandra developed an obsession with learning about flowers, and when the couple realized that spending some time in another country might offer a nice change for their family, an idea was born — and then one idea quickly became dozens.[Sign up here for the T List newsletter, a weekly roundup of what T Magazine editors are noticing and coveting now.]ImageA great way to explore the things that flowers can do for you in the kitchen is to find ones that produce other edible things — like sunflowers and their seeds. In this snack course, Price whips the seeds into a luscious, ridiculously creamy dip bolstered by sunflower seed oil and to...
