NYC Flower District

 28th St Between 6th & 7th Ave.

It's been awhile since I've added to the blog, what with wedding after wedding (pics to come) and planning upcoming events, my inspiration has been a bit one dimensional. However this week has brought a fresh awakening - I've been cruising around NYNY and even though I got to sit front and center at Jimmy Fallon last night, I have to say going to the Flower District today has made the whole trip for me.
 
Wholesaler after wholesaler with lush and vibrant color choices. A designers dream! 
I have made some great contacts and can' t wait to start sourcing some very interesting things for our upcoming events.


Enjoy the photos and if you see something you're curious about let me know. I'd love to help you get a little closer to these beauties. 




I have been looking for a good succulent source for a while. So happy I found these guys totally willing to chat and chat some more about flowers.



Rows and rows of roses. There were some David Austin's so yummy looking I wanted to lick my fingers! 


The streets are lined with potted plants. Ornamental cabbage, juniper and cypress.



Heather and some oregano tucked in the side. 


Mokara Orchids in all colors. These vibrant yellow one's were exquisite.



Meet friendly shop kitty. 


Fresh mint, lavender, artichokes and figs.


More David Austin's.


Endless possibilites. Every available flower in the world is here. 



Fresh cotton. 

This shop was full of tree branches. Joe was right at home. 
*A little side note. If you're in the NY area make sure to go to the Clinton St. Baking company for breakfast, or breakfast for lunch or dinner. They have the most amazing blueberry pancakes with real maple butter syrup. I really was licking my fingers. (There will be a wait. It's worth it.)
