  • MIDSUMMER CROWN FOR VOGUE

    As a swede, Swedish midsummer is a celebration that is very close to my heart. Growing up with a mother who always made sure we celebrated things in a traditional way, regardless of where we were living at the time, this holiday brings a lot of sentiment to me. So when Laird Borelli-Persson at Vogue contacted me to see if I could tie a floral crown for Swedish model Frida B Gustavsson and take some pictures of the process for Vogue it was a huge honor for me. And Frida looked so perfect in the crown which you can see here! Below are some of the pictures…hope you like them!

     

     

     

  • A LAST MINUTE REQUEST

    Vicinity allows for spontaneity, and that is one of the many reasons why we love working with local event planners, venues, and restaurants in Brooklyn.

    So was the case the other day when I was biking back from the flower district when my client and friend, Emelie Kihlström, one of the owners at Colonie, sent me a text message to ask for a last minute addition to the flowers she had ordered for that night. She was wondering if we could include some ingredients her chef had in the kitchen in the arrangements. Sure, I said, I'll be there in one minute! And I meant one minute literally.

    Shortly after, the arrangements had the wonderful addition of some very pretty mustard flowers (they really added a special touch!) and were sent off to the event: Taste of the Nation - No Kid Hungry, a charity event  that aims to end childhood hunger in America.

    Mustard flowers, tree peonies, honeysuckle, ranunculus, roses and tulips in recycled tin for the special event.

    And if you haven't been to Colonie yet, you must go! Their food is simply amazing, the interior is beautiful, and they support the New York community by using as many local purveyors and vendors as possible.

    In addition, they have a super cool vertical garden, check it out below! Would be nice to have one of our own in the studio someday, we are working on it… more about that another time…

  • WE HEART GRINDHAUS

    When one of our favorite restaurants in Red Hook asked us to make something exciting for a Valentines Day event and then mentioned that they had a bunch of vintage meat grinders lying around we could not contain our happiness. Could we use them as vases, we asked. Yes, they replied. You are telling us you are ok with us putting flowers in your appliances…? Yes. Well, now we really love you Grindhaus

  • PRINCESS MADELEINE OF SWEDEN

    I was recently given the honor to create another hand-bouquet for Princess Madeleine of Sweden. As a Swede, I was extremely proud to once again get to create something for the princess and glowing mom-to-be. The previous year we made a bouquet for her, as well as her mother Queen Silvia, so naturally we were delighted to be asked again. The event was a gala dinner, hosted and organized by The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce, and was a smashing success.

  • POWER FLOWERS

    Sometimes looking for inspiration is the most fun part of the process. Especially when it involves great music. When we made this arrangement for an intimate wedding in Red Hook we took cues from a New Order album cover designed by Peter Saville.

    Saville suggested that flowers are seductive and used a french painting, from 1906, in his design as a symbol of power. We doubt that few people would argue that flowers aren't a powerful tool of seduction.

    The arrangement we made works very well, both in size and shape, as a centerpiece at a wedding or a special event and is now available in our online shop. The flowers are arranged in a recycled urns which we have plenty of!
