Deck the Halls!

We must admit: when someone says “festive”, everyone at Starbright Floral Design in NYC thinks FLOWERS! Yet we realize that for some, the holiday season might not be the time that they think of how floral blooms can enhance their cheerful decor — that’s why we wanted to share how we brighten up Manhattan, each and every December.

We’d love to help make your winter a fun and festive season!

Many of our clients used to be addicted to poinsettia plants this time of year, and we understand why. With their ubiquitous presence all throughout New York City, poinsettias are an easy flower to reach for if you aren’t aware of more decadent options. But, rest easy in knowing that the brilliant floral designers at Starbright Floral Design have a few tricks up their sleeves to transform NYC spaces from ho-hum to Ho! Ho! Ho!

One flower that we love to incorporate into holiday decor is the amaryllis. Stunning on their own, these tall flowers add excitement and drama to any setting in New York City. Coming in an array of reds, from fire engine to burgundy, the amaryllis flowers seems like they were custom made for Christmas, with even a candy cane option of red and white striped available from your favorite local NYC florist!

Hydrangeas, roses and carnations also provide fantastic floral canvases for the holidays in NYC. Especially when grouped with their own but in differing hues, these flowers add that floral decadence that many are looking for in Manhattan. In particular, we love to see lush red roses paired with crisp white roses, that leave many dreaming of a gorgeous Christmas.

Vibrant red roses combined with rich greens and berries creates a lush holiday centerpiece.

With their abundance of blooms, hydrangeas are a wonderful flower to chose to deck your halls. With their incredible selection of colors, including silvers mixed with reds or deep purples, Starbright floral designers have found that these flowers prove to be the life of any party in New York City.

Of course, there are more unusual options available as well for your festive floral decor. Ilex berries in particular have an excellent combination of rich red berries on soaring stems that add elegance to every space in Manhattan and beyond. Starbright’s designers love to feature them standing proudly in a vase to maximize their visual impact.

Then there is one of our favorite blooms, classic white lilies. These flowers last a long time, have a lovely scent and mix perfectly with red flowers, like roses or carnations, for a joyous holiday feel. We think that white lilies are one of the most lovely flowers to use at any time of year, but their snowy white petals match the festivity in the air in New York City!

One the things about this season that we at Starbright love is how flowers can capture so many emotions and highlight the beauty of winter. If you’re thinking that some stunning floral bouquets might add that extra bit of holiday magic into your decor in NYC, we’d love to be of assistance and help make your days be extra merry and bright!

Starbright celebrates the holidays with Teleflora in New York City!

Hanging on various walls and scattered throughout the shop, are a number of plaques proclaiming Starbright Floral Design as one of the top 50 sellers in the Teleflora network. It’s a great place to be – in the Top 50 of a network including more than 15,000 member florists in the US and Canada. For over twenty years now, Starbright Floral Design has filled and sent orders to this network of talented florists. We’re all unique shops, many of us with our own unique styles, but together, with the stellar design direction of the Teleflora team florists all over are able to send exactly what you’re looking for. 

Earlier this week, Jasmine Corzo, a familiar face from the Teleflora design team, stopped into Starbright Floral Design with a camera crew, some clippers and a plan to introduce us to the Telefora holiday centerpieces and seasonal lineup collection for 2014.

Thomas Kinkade's Holiday Arrangement
Thomas Kinkade’s Meet Me Under The Mistletoe

The Teleflora arrangements this year remind us of being home for the holidays. The designs include traditional premium floral varieties, which bring out the colors of the season. Pieces like Teleflora’s Candy Cottage and Thomas Kinkade’s Meet Me Under The Mistletoe include winter greens like white pine and noble fir with snowy bright whites and velvety deep reds. Frosted pinecones and peppermint carnations, and big red berries are playful seasonal favorites that add great texture to these lush pieces. But it’s not just about the flowers!

Many of the Teleflora holiday arrangements are made to fit a special seasonal keepsake. While the premium flowers used in these arrangements have a great vase life, the vase they come in will surely be a longtime favorite. You’ll want to bring these cookie jars, mugs, and decorative vases out year after year and reminisce about when Aunt Ana, Grandpa Redd, or your nephew Hugo sent you flowers.

But Wait! There’s more!

As if the fancy flowers and festive vases aren’t enough, sending any item from the Teleflora Homemade For The Holidays Collection comes with a chance to enter their Holiday Sweepstakes to win a trip to NYC!

Holiday Collection Preview!

Tis the Season for new floral designs!

Starbright Floral Design is excited to release the first installment of our Holiday Collection!
"Tis Flower Season" arrangement
“Tis Flower Season”

Hydrangea, peonies, roses, and orchids get extra dressed up with gilt leaves and golden colored wire. The ruffled texture and rich rosy shades are the type of holiday lush you want to bring home for dinner. The wine and gold coloring of this arrangement makes it suited for the season, without a holiday theme.

"Rockefeller Center" arrangement
“Rockefeller Center”

There’s nothing like New York during the Holidays and one of the best places to celebrate – Rockefeller Center. Whether you’re planning to visit for the tree lighting (Wednesday, December 3rd!), seeing the 41st annual Merry Tuba Christmas performance (Sunday, December 14th) or going to the Top Of The Rock Rockefeller Center will show you a great time. This arrangement with berries, calla lilies, anthurium, pinecones and winter greens echoes the hustle and excitement of one of our favorite centers of commerce here in NYC.

"Central Park" arrangement
“Central Park”

This dramatic piece echoes the natural beauty of Frederick Olmsted’s Central Park design. With the arrangement’s classic tribute to the holiday designs of yesteryear you can transform your space into a seasonal winter wonderland…without having to step outside!
