To order flowers call

    The lovely Kelly and Jesse of Team Flower, recently reached out to me for an interview about sustainability and flowering and we had wonderful chat!
    In this podcast, I share some of my secrets, such as tricks on how to hydrate floral installs without floral foam, what non-toxic paints work best for floral design (which took me years of trial and error to figure out BTW!) and many other things. I hope you will learn something new from listening! When it comes to sustainability, I definitely believe in sharing what I have learned for the greater good.
    In addition to their podcasts Kelly and Jesse offer video tutorials, online classes and events and put in a lot of work towards educating, connecting, and empowering floral professionals worldwide so please check them out here!

    What a fun few days creating the floral step and repeat wall for Rachael Ray's 50th Birthday Celebration Show! As you may know, at Tin Can Studios, we are constantly developing new methods for more sustainable floristry and we have been at the forefront especially when it comes to so called "installations" that are "floral foam free". Traditional methods that include using floral foam are harmful for the environment so when FlowerSchool New York reached out to ask us to design a sustainable wall we were beyond thrilled!

    Here is a behind the scenes snippet with the TCS team and a "before and after" sequence presented by Mary Giuliani.

    And next time you are planning a big birthday or event, you know who to call...

    Surprise guests included Bobby Flay, Emeril Lagasse, and Curtis Stone. In addition, Oprah Winfrey and former First Lady Michelle Obama had recorded personal tributes for Rachael!
    Balloon Saloon created a super fun cascading doorway install and Milk Bar brought in a delicious naked cake.
    There were also 50 amazingly cute rescue puppies in the studio that Beth Stern brought in … among other things… like our flowers.
    Thanks to our AMAZING team for getting the wall up in just about 2 hours!
