{{Parties + Events}} Making Magic With Bodega Flowers

We teamed up with our friend Robert from Fleurum, a luxury floral design studio, to celebrate the arrival of Spring – a season no longer marked by a specific date (because we all know it’s not even nice out until WAY after March 20th) but by a vibe in the air when everyone is walking around jacket-less and all outings involve a patio.

What better way to welcome the warmth than with a happy hour dedicated to learning how to turn all the newly bloomed #MayFleurs (from your bodega flowers stand, perhaps?) into magical creations for your coffee table.

Being in NYC we couldn’t quite get our hands on access to a lush garden so we found the next best thing – a French cheese shop in the heart of NoLita. Triple creme, brie, and camembert from French Cheese Board fueled the flower design class led by Robert.

French Cheese + Wine + French Hand Tied Bouquets = OOO LA LA

In a matter of an hour, we learned how to arrange multiple types of flowers together, properly cut the stems, hand tie the bouquet, and set them up in a vase. Guests not only went home with their own spin on an arrangement but also the newfound knowledge to turn otherwise cheesy corner store concoctions into something pretty special.
