To order flowers call

    …it's universal. And that is why me and my good friend Odette Williams put together this simple flower arrangement DIY using potted daisies for you all.

    I have some pictures here below, but Odette wrote down my tips and verbalized them in a much better way than I ever would so I suggest heading over to her blog to get the instructions.

    Did I mention she is giving a way one of her beautiful aprons on her Instagram if you hurry over there now?




    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 have a paid internship opportunity available! Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested:

    Our ideal candidate has a strong interest, and some basic knowledge, in floral design. Responsibilities will include conditioning flowers, keeping the studio organized, purchasing materials and flowers, and assisting in making arrangements for clients and events.

    In addition, we build and customize many of our vases/containers and other types of decor, so if you possess other hand skills (are not afraid to paint, sew, use a nail gun, a chop saw, etc) that would be a great plus.



    Basically, we would love to work with someone who can multi-task, is interested in learning new things, and who enjoys rolling up his/her sleeves when necessary. Photography skills are also a strong plus.

    Details: Part-time, paid internship, flexible schedule in a fun, creative and fast-paced environment. We are open to discussing work schedule arrangements. Our studio is in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

    If your skills meet the requirements above please forward pictures of your work together with your resume to




    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


    It has been a somewhat long process, perhaps because of my inability to make up my mind when it comes to what size our worktable should be. Or was it that we had six events in two weeks last month, or that there were a few other kinks in the road… hmm, probably a bit of all.

    We are not quite finished yet, but we are taking some pictures of the process and are super pleased with the outcome so far. One of my favorite parts so far is our flower cooler. We decided to cover it with cedar shingles, install a found old window, a corrugated tin roof, and made it look like a shed. Why not, right?

    Maybe some of our design decisions were based mainly on our urge to break out the nail gun, regardless we are having fun in the process…
