To order flowers call

    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…

    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.

    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!
