Allergy-Proof Flowers!

At Starbright, we are thrilled to help our friends and clients in New York City celebrate their milestones, accomplishments and celebrations with flowers, every day! Yet while most people want to burrow their noses in blossoms in NYC, there are some who shy away, terrified at the idea of inhaling pollen and sneezing the day away.

For those among us in Manhattan who battle allergies from flowers, there are wonderful floral options to indulge your sense in, while keeping your senses clear. Starbright has carefully cultivated a list of beautiful blooms that lack pollen for our clients in NYC. We realize that the gorgeous bouquet below might look intimidating for someone who suffers from sneezing around flowers, but no need to hold your breath because this composition has been created out of all allergen-free flowers.

The bright white of this composition can only be matched with NYC’s bright lights.

Starbright’s own Isle of White is a fantastic example of what is possible when you want your flowers to appeal to everyone in New York City. Crafted to bring beauty and elegance to every setting in NYC, our soothing and serene Isle of White features créme roses, white asiatic lilies and stock stem which are carefully arranged to their best advantage in a delightful bubble vase. Each flower, in addition to being breathtaking, is also one that will only bring happiness without any sneezing.

Since roses are known to not cause allergies for anyone in Manhattan or beyond, we couldn’t resist sharing with you one of the most decadent compositions of roses that we’ve created at Starbright. Starbright’s bouquet that was christened All My Love in NYC is overflowing with decadence. With more than 40 hot pink, lavender, light pink and medium pink roses artfully positioned in a cylindrical, clear glass vase, this is a composition that will knock everyone’s socks off — but not from sneezing!

Starbright’s fresh roses are paired with verdant Ti leaves for an incredible display.

Another fantastic floral from Starbright that would never leave you searching for a handkerchief in Manhattan are the mischievous snapdragons. Unexpected and with fantastic dimensions, snapdragons can sometimes be skipped over in the floral world in New York City, but never at Starbright. Intricate and alluring, snapdragons will liven up any flowers that they are nestled up to, and it comes as no surprise that in Starbright’s Hearts Aflutter Bouquet, the snapdragons achieve that effect. Mixed with lilies and roses, the air will be filled with a sumptuous scent, but no sneezes.

If ever a flower were to be called vivacious, it would be the snapdragon.

Tulips, with their ubiquitous springtime presence, may cause many to worry that they might bring sneezes with their blossoms, but these flowers are yet another upstanding example of flowers that won’t cause tears from olfactory distress in Manhattan. Their lavish petals and leggy stems give them a refinement that few other flowers can match in NYC. At Starbright, we love to have the tulips take centerstage in our Tulip Orange Grove in New York City. The tangerine tulips are resplendent against their flourishing, green stems, so we highlighted the beautiful juxtaposition with a clear vase to let the exquisiteness shine through in Manhattan.

The gentle elegance of tulips is displayed in their full glory with a clear glass vase.

These flowers are but a few of the many blooms that Starbright knows will keep your home or business looking its best, but without causing those with allergies any distress. We would be delighted to consult with you on which other blossoms could enliven your space!

The Allure of Amaryllis

What is sometimes forgotten because of Amaryllis’ beauty, is the lore behind one of Starbright’s treasured flowers. Greek legend tells us that Amaryllis was once a beautiful, though bashful, nymph. And though she didn’t live in New York City, she was familiar to all of us as she fell deeply in love. Amaryllis loved Alteo, a shepherd who had Hercules’ strength and Apollo’s fetching facade (rumor has it that he was quite foxy).

Gorgeous Amaryllis has a wonderful Greek legend to go along with its beauty.
Gorgeous Amaryllis has a wonderful Greek legend to go along with its beauty.

Amaryllis longed to give Alteo the one thing he desired most: a flower that had never existed in the world before. But not knowing how to do this, Amaryllis sought guidance from the Oracle of Delphi. The Oracle told Amaryllis to go to Alteo’s door each night and to pierce her heart with a golden arrow upon every visit. Alteo finally opened the door after 30 nights to behold Amaryllis and the flowers that the blood of her heart created; a singular kind of flower never seen before.

Crimson Amaryllis was said to have sprung from the love of a nymph.

Today, there are easier ways to entice your own true love in New York City! As unique as golden arrows piercing hearts sounds, there’s no need to follow Amaryllis’s dramatic endeavors in Manhattan. Instead, consider sending some Amaryllis to that special person you love in NYC and woo them by sharing this tale.

It’s true that everyone at Starbright adores everything that we have in our overflowing NYC flower and plant emporium. And while each florist has their own favorite flower, there’s nothing that we all love more than a good story to go with a beautiful bloom.

Amaryllis is a fantastic choice to send to someone you love.

Amaryllis is one such flower that is beloved in New York City and beyond, and it’s easy to see why. With stunning petals that come in a variety of vivid hues, including purples, pinks, whites and crimson reds, Amaryllis stands out in every floral composition anywhere in Manhattan.

Amaryllis comes from the Greek work “amarysso” which translates into “to sparkle” and everyone at Starbright is delighted to do our part to spread these flowers far and wide in New York City to dazzle the City. Amaryllis flowers have become known beyond New York City to symbolize pride, determination and lustrous beauty; combined with its rich coloring, it’s no surprise that it has become a seasonal favorite.

Pantone Announces the 2017 Color of the Year!

With the fresh start of 2017, everyone at Starbright is thrilled with the new color of the year from Pantone called Greenery. And as (we hope!) your favorite florists in NYC, of course we would adore this color. A refreshing combination of greens and yellows, Greenery represents the optimism and all that is possible in 2017.

Greenery is the color of the season!
Greenery is the color of the season!

 

According to Pantone, Greenery is supposed to symbolize new beginnings, and in the spirit of Greenery, our floral crafters wanted to make that a reality for New York City. One of the ways that we’re doing that is by creating sumptuous flower bouquets in our Emerald Isle collection that incorporate Greenery into the mix. Of course, there is a bit of greenery to go with the Greenery!

Hydrangea in Greenery is a perfect foil for pops of orchids.
Hydrangea in Greenery is a perfect foil for pops of orchids.

Our lush Highlander floral composition is one example of how we’re bringing Greenery to Manhattan. An abundance of greens allows the different textures and hues of the flowers that are incorporated in the composition to take center stage, which will make a tremendous statement in a home of office in NYC. The grounding rocks at the base of the vase provide an unexpected richness and the surprising pop of white and burgundy orchids perfectly complements the beautiful Greenery.

Pantone notes that Greenery is evocative of the zesty, fresh breath of spring air and Starbright’s New York City florists adore this notion. Everyone at Starbright in NYC wanted to honor that spirit of vigor and peace by blending verdant Greenery with soothing, snowy whites. Starbright’s Calla River of Hope united these ideas of meditative zen in a crystal clear square vase, with the inspiration leaping outside the box! Our calla lilies rest peacefully alongside one edge, while lively blades of grass perk up the other side of the vase. Softening river stones at the base of the composition creates a beautiful foundation for all of this magic to spring from.

Calla lilies and blades of grass are combined to brilliant effect.

One of our favorite things at Starbright is how flowers can be designed to create so many different sentiments in NYC. Being true to the Greenery theme encouraged Starbright designers to dream of new and fascinating creations for our beloved New York City clients.

One of the ways we honored the Pantone color of the year of Greenery was by featuring green cymbium orchids to stand by themselves in our Zensational creation. Generally mixed into other compositions, the Greenery theme encouraged Starbright floral designers to consider color in a new light and use this terrific orchid in an exciting way. The green cymbium orchid is a proud and elegant flower that, on its own, is quite striking and dramatic. Everyone at Starbright was thrilled to have this beauty shine for others to admire.

Beginning to Look Like Chrismukkah!

With the holidays just around the corner, all of us at Starbright Floral Design in NYC couldn’t be more excited that Christmas and Hannukah share December 25th this year! To get into the holiday spirit, we wanted to share some dazzling, festive flower ideas that we know would bring your home comfort and joy this season.

Drama and splendor through flowers make the holidays feel that much more festive.

Amaryllis is one of our favorite holiday flowers to build into creations for New York City, and with its stunning height and rich hues, it’s easy to see why. When combined with long calla lilies and filled in with sumptuous pine greenery, this composition becomes a star at every holiday gathering.

Another way Starbright designers celebrate the Yuletide in NYC is to craft low centerpieces to feast over. With a single candle flickering to illuminate the grace of the seasonal delights like dense evergreen foliage combined with lush, snowy-white hydrangea and calla lilies, we think this would be a smashing success to add to any holiday table this year.

Elegant and refined, our centerpieces allow for conversations to flow.

Starbright designers relish evoking the end of year jubilee celebrations through flowers in Manhattan. They do this by creating a perfectly assembled compilation of the season’s greatest florals. A beloved creation is made by using a glass cube to serve as a wintery reminder of the season. The glass perimeter allows that much more of the flower composition to be admired. The wintergreens at the base provide a verdant backdrop for the red-tinged succulents, snow-dusted pine cones and soft, white roses that create the visual intrigue on top.

Like an ice cube adorned with flowers, the Starbright team is always dreaming up new ideas!

With your sleds ready to jingle, we know that coming back in from the cold in NYC can be made that much warmer with a breathtaking vase overflowing with joy. While our flowers are merry and bright, they are also fragrantly rich, thanks in part to the fuchsia roses that are combined with pine clippings and evergreens. Pine cones are added in for a wonderful surprise and make this composition feel right at home in the heart of Manhattan or just coming off the slopes of Aspen.

Dense foliage combined with radiant flowers warm your home for the holidays and beyond.

Starbright’s artisanal designers love to elicit the feel of the season through flowers. Our wintry combination of snowy amaryllis, softened sprigs of white birch mixed with dusty miller and Skoparia echoes the feel of the beauty of the frost outside, while you stay toasty warm in New York City!

Inspired by the intricate allure of frost, this composition will only thrive inside where it’s warm!

In keeping with our tradition to bedeck as much of New York City in festive flowers as possible, our Starbright team had the distinct honor to be invited to adorn a private space at 620 Loft and Gardens in Manhattan on behalf of American Express and Starwood Hotels. Celebrating the lighting of the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center in NYC, we were only too thrilled to lend a hand to embellish the space.

Our endlessly creative Starbright designers wanted to honor the season in NYC and did that by creating elegant centerpieces and cascading cedar with pinecones to rest over the doorways to create a winter wonderland.

The greenery and pinecones that Starbright crafted over doorways made an instant impact.

On the backdrop of snowy white linens for tablecloths, our Starbright designers chose to combine Jack Frost-approved greens with fresh pinecones to evoke the sense of being in the woodlands in wintertime, while being cocooned in the warmth of Manhattan. This created a low, show-stopping composition that allowed for plenty of discourse over dinner in NYC while still paying homage to the theme.

Using dogwood trimmed vases for a base, Starbright also combined roses with wintergreens which created an extravagant yet graceful vignette for the tables in New York City. In other centerpieces, small twigs of cinnamon were woven in so that the warm scent of the season delicately wafted through the Manhattan air.

The beautiful scent of cinnamon puts everyone into the holiday spirit!

Have a Starbright-ful Thanksgiving!

Everyone at Starbright Floral Design is always thankful our clients are our friends and our days are filled with flowers. We love what we do in New York City and are so passionate about floral design because we know our work brings smiles to others. And that’s our favorite thing!

In preparation of this Thanksgiving, we’ve been cooking up a floral feast for your senses. If you’re still looking for a bit of inspiration for a centerpiece filled with flowers, we have some ideas for you and would be delighted to deliver any and all of these incredible floral compositions to you in NYC and beyond!

Cornucopias, also know as “horns of plenty”, can trace their origins back to classical antiquity. But here in New York City and all throughout America, these time-honored creations are ubiquitous at Thanksgiving. Of course, the version that Starbright’s visionary designers crafted is abounding with flowers, and we would hope that you’d want it no other way!

Starbright took special care to ensure that the best of autumn’s colors shined in this gorgeous floral composition.

Filled with sunflowers, roses and additional flowers like calla lilies, we think that our Cornucopias bring a sense of bounty to any gathering. Perfect as a centerpiece or as a statement elsewhere in your home or business in NYC, Cornucopias evoke a sense of welcoming community through their rich composition and lush abundance.

In the spirit of welcoming everyone for a feast, we have also been busy crafting autumnal wreathes, bedecked in flowers. Lovely as an accent on a front door inside or outside in New York City, our wreaths are created to please the eye as much as your Thanksgiving meal will excite the palate.

Wreaths by Starbright bring together corn and wheat to evoke of the harvest.

Of course, there is nothing more apropos than a turkey for Thanksgiving anywhere in New York City and beyond. We wanted to build a floral delight that would last long after the Thanksgiving meal had been devoured and thought a faux turkey would be just the thing to brighten everyone’s day.

A Thanksgiving turkey…the Starbright way!

Made with fresh foliage and flowers with a base of fresh, rust toned chrysanthemums, this turkey has been certified as cruelty-free. It’s a great addition for every Thanksgiving celebration, near in NYC or far, that wants to add a bit of whimsy through floral décor.

We know some of our beloved friends don’t adore the cold in New York City and wish that they were someplace warmer for the holidays. It was with them in mind that we created our Tropical Thanksgiving masterpiece.

Calla lilies and mosses beflower our tropical coconuts.

Built out of coconuts and adorned with flowers and mosses, our Tropical Thanksgiving is a great gift for a host who wishes that they were celebrating someplace warmer. We were delighted to be asked to create something that would remind the recipient more of Bermuda than NYC and think that the russet calla lilies pay tribute to our turkiest of holidays.

If you’re just realizing that although you have your menu planned out but maybe not the flowers to adorn your Thanksgiving table, give us a ring! We’ll make sure that just the right composition arrives safely at your door…before your guests! Here’s to a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with laughter and love. Happy Thanksgiving, from all of us at Starbright.

BOO-tiful Bouquets for Halloween!

If there’s one thing we know at Starbright Floral Design, it’s how to make a stunning statement with flowers and Halloween is no exception! We love getting into the Halloween spirit here in NYC and wanted to share some inspiration with you on how to use flowers, pumpkins and a few well-placed props to give your decor that pop that will make it look like it might go bump in the night…

Pumpkins and Halloween are perfect together. We strive to create an eerie elegance in our Halloween displays and pumpkins are a fantastic foil that allow us to do just that. Using them to enhance our floral compositions is one of our favorite ways to evoke that spooky spirit that everyone is searching for this time of year, in New York City and beyond.

The rich coloring of pumpkins provides a great background for flowers and greenery that we at Starbright relish. Lush succulents and king protea flowers brighten up this humble gourd and transform it into a festive Halloween centerpiece. We framed this pumpkin with harvest corn to evoke a nostalgic yet refined ambiance, wonderful for the autumn season.

Twilight lavender calla lily flowers create a vivid exclamation point on our scary squash, while the draped succulents known as amaranthus give a creepy-crawly sensation as they ooze down the pumpkin’s side. A burst of color through the hypericum berries on the side evoke the orange of the pumpkin while making you wonder if they are poisoned or not.

sfd1

But not all pumpkins need to be scary! We carved one up to give it a friendly grin and added a mix of festive fall flowers including dahlias to give the jack o’lantern a perfect coif. Part of the elegance of this floral composition is hidden by the pumpkin itself, for a vase can be stored inside the pumpkin and filled with fresh water to keep your flowers looking fresher for much longer.

sfd2

At Starbright, we love to delight our clients with the unexpected and so we had a wonderful time building this luscious composition. We combined a traditional gourd with an eccentric one to highlight the unique attributes of the green squash. The fun sprays of verdant branches built heightened interest in this composition, with the succulents softening the entire look.

sfd5

One of our clients was looking for something to spook on sight and we had just the special visitor to liven up an otherwise friendly bouquet. A spray of mango toned calla lilies echoed the spiderwebs that wove their way through the flower composition of calla lilies and euphorbia. We’re sure that whoever received this bouquet was given quite a fright!

sfd3

Halloween is one of Starbright’s favorite times to feature whimsical components in our compositions to make a spooky statement. If you’ve carved your pumpkins and hung up the decorations but there’s still something missing, stop by our shop in Manhattan on Halloween. You’ll be able to find that missing floral masterpiece while seeing the staff of Starbright dressed up for the day. We’ll be giving away candy while we create chilling delights!
