Starbright Prepares For 22nd Valentine’s Day in NYC!

Starbright’s exclusive Valentine’s day flowers are now available for delivery in NYC!

Bursting with Emotion
NEW for 2016-Bursting with Emotion

There’s no shortage of Romance in NYC in February! With Valentine’s Day 2016 just around the corner, New York City is abuzz with a Valentine’s Day glow.  Here at Starbright Floral Design, we’re pretty obsessed with Valentine’s Day too.  To kick off the season right, the Starbright designers each created custom new pieces for 2016.

Romance is in the balmy springtime like air throughout NYC.  One sure way to turn around this heat wave is forgetting to send flowers for Valentine’s Day in NYC.  “Antarctica has not seen coldness that a woman who does not receive flowers for Valentine’s day can emit in NYC.” Unknown Author.  This floral design was specifically created for Valentine’s Day in NYC 2016.




Love Intertwined

“Because our hearts are intertwined, Being apart is nothing more than missing you, and feeling blue,  Because our hearts are intertwined
Miles between are not prevalent, as our love is angel sent
Because our hearts are intertwined
Obstacles precede motion, which only challenge our devotion…” Janice Karp


Love on the Line



Put your love on the line with this aptly named modern rose display exclusively created by Starbright for Valentine’s Day 2016 and for local delivery in Manhattan NYC.  This piece is symbolic of how exposed one may feel when they let their true feelings known.  Trust enough in your love to reveal your true feelings.







These unique arrangements all represent the personalized style of our design team and pack a whole bunch of extra love. We’re also excited to be creating arrangements from the “helpfully” romantic.  See our full Valentine’s Day Flowers Collection.  More new creations to follow-stay tuned!


Happy Valentine’s Day everybody!

August Birth Flowers in NYC: Gladiolus


Gladiolus has been dubbed the flower of the Gladiators.   It represents strength of character, sincerity, generosity.  In the Victorian age with its secret language of flowers it was said to represent “love at first sight”. Gladiolus derives its name from the latin word for sword and is sometimes called the sword lily.  As a member of the iris family it contains about 260 species.   Only about 10 are native to Europe the rest are native to southern Africa.  The species vary from very small to the spectacular giant flower spikes you see in floral designs. The flower stalk of the Gladiolus contains an extended row of trumpet-shaped, fragrant flowers, all of which face in one direction. Their colors include pink to reddish or light purple with white, contrasting markings, or white to cream or orange to red.


Once upon a time Gladiolus were viewed as an upscale, highly sought after flower but fell into the sympathy arrangement niche.  However, we’ve recently seen a resurgence of the Gladiolus in NYC.    Many upscale restaurants and hotels in NYC have once again incorporated the Gladiolus in their floral decor.

Spathiphyllum Plants (Peace Lily Plants): Spathiphyllum Plant Care

Peace lily plants are delivered in NYC for all kinds of occasions.  Whether to deliver a gift in remembrance, as a house-warming present or just  to spread joy, Spathiphyllum plants  are a favorite of NYC residents.  For those of you who are lucky enough to have received a Peace Lily in NYC, here are some care tips:


The peace lily belongs to the Spathiphyllum family.  Its flowers may be white or yellow with long bright green leaves. This plant is at peace when it is watered regularly.  Typically two or three times a week is sufficient.  Check the soil and make sure its moist.  If its dry, or the leaves are wilting or browning its been too long between watering.  In addition to regular watering, this plant likes its leaves misted.  The misting helps prevent red spider mite infestation.  If you see tiny spider webs treat the leaves with alcohol and spray with an insecticidal soap.

CAUTION FOR NYC RESIDENTS and others with chlorinated water supplies.   This plant is very sensitive to chlorinated water.  Either water with distilled water (unlikely) or let the tap water sit overnight thereby dissipating the chlorine.


NYC office plants need to tolerate indirect light environments.  One reason why this plant is so well equipped for office life is that it is not a sunbather.  The plant prefers natural filtered light.  Exposing the plant to direct sunlight will brown the leaves and create problems.

Ancillary Care

The roots of a Peace Lily like to be tightly confined but will normally overfill their initial pot within 1 year.  However, they do not usually require a pot larger than 10 inches.  Although the plant is simple to care for, it still needs to be fertilized occasionally. However, be sure that the fertilizer is not too strong or the leaves will brown and the root hairs will be killed.  Err on the side of a milder mix to be safe.  Rule of a green thumb is a fertilizer mix of 20-20-20.

If your plant was beautiful and healthy when purchased and you’ve maintained it as discussed herein, but it doesn’t bloom or has deformed shaped leaves you need to show some patience.  It is possible it was purchased from a discount retailer who artificially induced the plant into bloom for sale.  Your plant is simply said a drug addict.  It is looking for a dose of the hormone gibberellic acid.  Don’t be an enabler.  Let it beat the habit with your love and care and eventually it will live out a normal cycle. 

We highly recommend the Peace Lily for a variety of uses:

The Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily) is a great gift of a house plant or office plant in NYC  (personal or corporate).
