Starbright’s Wonderful Secret: Designer’s Choice

Everyone at Starbright adores whipping up a beautiful bouquet of blooms for our dear friends and clients in New York City — but we realized that we’ve been keeping quite the florist secret from you for far too long.

Styled as our Designer’s Choice, this is a section on Starbright’s website that we earnestly entreat you to explore. Composed of only seven options, it might seem sparse compared to our other offerings, yet this is a page that abounds with floral possibilities.

Let Starbright’s florists wow you with a Designer’s Choice composition for your love.

Designer’s Choice has perhaps the most exclusive flowers in New York City. Each bouquet is crafted for only you. That means that there won’t be another creation like it to be found anywhere in Manhattan! We promise that the flowers we bring together for each composition will be unique, gorgeous and alluring…

Any occasion that you have to send your sentiments with flowers is a great reason to choose Designer’s Choice. From romantic entreats to sending a guy flowers, Designer’s Choice gives you the freedom of knowing your bouquet will be stunning and Starbright’s designers the leeway to craft something bespoke just for you.

Celebrate the arrival of a precious bundle of joy with a Designer’s Choice composition!

We hear from our clients that they love using Designer’s Choice to send flowers with the arrival of a new baby, and of course, our modern renditions of flowers through Designer’s Choice are break taking.

We love when our clients choose the Starbright Designer’s Choice flower option. It allows our incredibly talented designers the opportunity to weave together flowers that are at the peak of freshness and that perfectly complement each other. This also means that these floral symphonies will be uniquely their own. It is a chance for the Starbright team to really shine — and for you to get the very best value for flowers in New York City.

Starbright’s bouquets through Designer’s Choice For a Guy means your man will get something wonderfully curated.

Moreover, while we delight in creating selections from our traditional menu, those compositions tend to be very similar in appearance time after time. And while those compositions have their own advantages, Designer’s Choice promises to give you an exclusive bouquet, dreamed up in the imagination of one of our brilliant designers and allowing their fancy to take flight — bringing you the most sumptuous creation possible.

Starbright takes great pride in being one of the most coveted florists in New York City. It’s true that our unrelenting dedication to customer service and exceeding expectations are ingredients to that success, but it is also the ingenuity of our florists that gives Starbright that j’ne sais pas that brings our clients back to us time and time again, turning them into lifelong friends.

Starbright’s Modern rendition of bouquets through Designer’s Choice are captivating.

Designer’s Choice is the culmination of our drive to bring you the best and brightest floral bouquets, each and every time. We realize that it can feel like a bit of a leap of faith, to ask us to use our imagination, our creativity and to create something out of nothing. But we can assure you that creating floral masterpieces is not only what we do, it’s what we thrive at doing.

In fact, MINI of Manhattan just named Starbright a top flower shop in Manhattan! We are honored with this recognition and know that we are only featured in this way because of Starbright’s incredible designers who make floral dreams into a reality.

Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day on Friday!

You may recall that we’ve mentioned before how as florists in NYC, everyone at Starbright is thrilled that Greenery is the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year — and March brings us even more reasons to celebrate with this revitalizing hue.

To keep up with the passing seasons, Starbright has dedicated a section of our website to March flowers, which have been carefully selected for their vibrancy as winter gives way to spring. Of course, Saint Patrick’s Day and Greenery were on our minds when we curated both that and our Emerald Isle collections —  we’re excited to share with you some of that Irish inspiration!

Starbright’s Orchid Tower is awash in Greenery for St. Patrick’s Day.

Saint Patrick’s Day, which has been celebrated since the 1600’s in honor of Christianity making its way to Ireland, has been marked by being a feast day — and it is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the heritage and culture of the Irish, here in New York City.

There are endless ways that you can incorporate Greenery into your celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day in Manhattan. From flowers to centerpieces, bow ties to green-tinged milkshakes, we’re delighted to share with you some ways that we’ll be celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day at Starbright!

Starbright’s Highlander is a wonderful way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

Starbright’s Highlander in NYC is awash in a sea of Greenery, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. By using a palette of dense Greenery in varying floral textures, the creative minds behind Starbright’s Highlander masterpiece added just enough variation to make this composition endlessly alluring.

There is perhaps nothing that evokes the beauty of Ireland more than clover. To honor that whimsical, leafy flower, our brilliant artisanal florists used lush, dense hydrangea to evoke the sense of being surrounded by clover in our beloved Highlander composition. The subtle orchids placed amid the bouquet allows for a surprise of color, that we think enhances just how striking Greenery is as a hue.

But the luck of the Irish has to be celebrated in more than one way in New York City! Starbright’s Blooming Meadows evoke the stunning Irish countryside, awash in flowers and perhaps even some mystical fairies tucked between the leaves. Even hints of Greenery make their way into this delightful bouquet; the delicate roses set off the fuschia-tinged hydrangea, while the crystal vases brings to mind the rushing rivers in Ireland.

Starbright’s Blooming Meadows capture the colors of the Irish landscape.

Of course, there is perhaps nothing as invigorating as luscious Greenery paired with crisp whites. Starbright’s florists decided that pairing sumptuous alabaster roses with spritely pepper grass in a range of Greenery hues would make our Morning Dew a darling composition that revisits the wonder of the Irish countryside. Rustic and elegant, Starbright’s Morning Dew bouquet perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the season.

Morning Dew was inspired by the dramatic beauty of Ireland.

Everyone at Starbright loves how festive Saint Patrick’s Day in NYC is each year. With all of windswept Manhattan preparing for Saint Patrick’s festivities, we hope you are able to blend some decadent Greenery into your celebration with Starbright’s dazzling flowers. As always, if you have an idea you’d like to see created in flowers, everyone at Starbright would love to make your floral dreams into a stunning bouquet, just for you!

Boho Chic Makes a Debut at Starbright!

The effortless elegance of boho chic in New York City is a silhouette that the brilliant designers at Starbright wanted to translate into flowers. Combining flowers and fashion may seem incongruous, but at Starbright, we would advocate that perhaps there is no finer pairing in NYC.

Fashion is, after all, the deconstruction and reconstruction around ideas of style that will fit the human form. Flowers and their many variations from roses to amaryllis, to tulips and orchids and so many more, find themselves placed with other beautiful varieties to form stunning compositions over and over again, in countless ways.

Being inspired by the grace of the effervescent fashion of New York City, everyone at Starbright is excited to unveil our newest addition to the Starbright website: Boho Chic where we cultivate an appreciation for the effortless and subtle beauty of nature.

One of the first ways we did that was by creating Starbright’s own Regal Profusion. With florals dancing in decadent fuchsia, this is a bouquet that will enliven every space and brighten any decor. Filled with rich calla lilies, tulips, orchids and Starbright’s carefully curated stock flowers, our Regal Profusion marries the whimsy of boho chic with the decadence of easy glamour in one vase.

Starbright’s Regal Profusion is decadence in a vase.

Not to be outdone by fuchsia, Starbright’s artisanal designers dreamed another dream in creating our own Bohemian Rhapsody for New York City. Composed of lush roses and languid calla lilies, this nosegay is one that is sure to delight the most discerning in Manhattan. Starbright’s designers made sure to evoke the flowing splendor that defines boho chic and is so adored in NYC by combining the vibrant hues of royalty, including violet, magenta and merlot into one magnificent creation.

A Bohemian Rhapsody in NYC is a gorgeous reminder of the loveliness in the world.

But what — you may be asking — is any boho chic tribute in NYC if it does not elicit the English charm that has always weaved its way into the coveted style of boho chic throughout the world? But fear not, brave reader! At Starbright, we cherish the fantastical juxtapositions that our neighbors across the pond from New York City revel in creating, out of flowers and more. We chose to honor that delightful mischievousness in flowers in our English Charm bouquet, where we brought dense roses and spritely dahlias together in a single vase to utterly bewitch everyone in New York City.

English Charm is a riot of floral beauties.

At Starbright, we hope to awaken the senses to the giddy happiness that is conjured by our Boho Chic collection, where we strive to bring a profusion of our favorite flowers together for your enjoyment and perusal. In the end, it is beauty in the eye of the beholder that each composition seeks to lure into an incredible story of enchantment, and we welcome you to do that by discovering our newly curated Boho Chic section.

If these bouquets have tickled your fancy or inspired you with an idea of your own making, everyone at Starbright in NYC is standing by to bring your wishes alive through flowers. We can’t wait to make all your floral dreams come true!

The Language of Love

Showering your love with flowers in New York City is a tradition that stretches back through time. Flowers can express loyalty, devotion, love, adoration and so much more, which makes Valentine’s Day one of the holidays that everyone at Starbright looks forward to with great joy. A day filled with flowers is Starbright’s kind of celebration, and we relish our small part in bringing lovers together in NYC as they enjoy this wonderful day.

So how to best tell your love with flowers, “I adore thee,”? Everyone at Starbright always makes sure to suggest the following, before venturing toward other flowers: if your amour has a favorite flower, go with that! There is nothing more romantic than showing your love that you listen to him or her throughout the year and know precious details about them. So whether it’s pansies or tulips, sunflowers or succulents, everyone at Starbright is ready to make your love’s dream in flowers come true.

Romance is in the tiny details of life.

But fear not, brave Valentine! If you haven’t yet learned the flower that sets your love’s heart aflutter in Manhattan, the brilliant Starbright artisan florists can make some flowery magic for you. After over two decades in New York City, we have developed a few suggestions on what flowers perfectly convey the language of love on Valentine’s Day.

“A rose by another other name would smell as sweet,” Juliet murmured in regard to her star-crossed love, Romeo — and she’s right! The name of the rose does not create the splendor of the scent, but it does evoke for everyone in New York City a classic beauty that always delights. There’s no better time of year for Starbright’s Love and Devotion bouquet of two dozen red roses. Richly colored and at the height of ripeness, these two dozen roses are a decadent Valentine’s Day treat for your sweetheart.

Starbright’s Love and Devotion bouquet make a stunning statement.

If roses are red and violets are blue, we’d bet that orchids will delight you, too! Starbright’s NYC Orchid Passion marries the vibrancy of fresh orchids with the soft allure of beautiful hydrangea, coupled with darts of pure tulip glory. This gorgeous composition created by Starbright’s floral artists in Manhattan is an excellent choice for a discerning special somebody who is looking for some variety in their blooms. Available for local delivery in New York City, Starbright’s NYC Orchid Passion may end up becoming yours!

Orchids made a bold statement of adoration.

Luscious white flowers are another exquisite choice for your Valentine. The snowy pearlescence of Starbright’s miniature, languid calla lilies look lovely in their crystal vase. Nestled on a throne of glassy pebbles, Starbright’s Blanco Calla Tango combines these features into an enchanted floral composition that is sure to thrill your Valentine.

Starbright's Blaco Calla Tango will send your love over the moon!

As fun as flowers are, everyone at Starbright knows that the true meaning of Valentine’s Day is letting your Valentine know just how much you adore them. So whether through flowers or poems written on napkins in coffee shops in NYC, we hope you and your Valentine have a fabulous time…being together. Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Starbright!

Starbright at the Hotel Excellence Awards!

Starbright Floral Design was thrilled to be invited to be a sponsor for this year’s Hotel Excellence Awards (HEA), held in New York City. Starbright has always looked forward to the HEA, which we’ve been a sponsor of since the award ceremony began, in 2000. One of Manhattan’s many prestigious annual galas, the HEA honors those who serve the hotel industry and everyone at Starbright was only too happy to lend a hand…and some flowers!

Hosted by Where IN New York with the New York Association of Hotel Concierges and the Hotel Association of New York City, Inc, this night was an exciting and unique chance to showcase some of Starbright’s most decadent floral designs.

Starbright had the honor of being invited to be a sponsor of the Hotel Excellence Awards.

As the coveted floral designer among hotel concierges since Starbright’s founding in 1994, we wanted to give back to our friends and clients by helping to create an evening they’d always remember, filled with fantastic flowers and beautiful blooms.

We used this festive occasion to showcase our towering verdant orchids, that have a playful touch of fuchsia to tickle the senses. Ensconced in a tall crystal vase, these orchid blooms are always a hit, and we’re elated to report that they had that exact response at the Hotel Excellence Awards in NYC.

Representing us at this distinguished event were Stephen Faitos, Senior Vice-President at Starbright, along with Julie McGonigle, our Special Events Architect. They had the opportunity to meet and mingle with some of New York City’s best and brightest in the hotel industry, while having a wonderful time.

Stephen and Julie had a chance to chat with Adeline Tafuri Jurecja, the publisher of Where and IN New York Magazine, and a dear friend of Starbright. Seeing Adeline in person in Manhattan is always a treat for everyone at Starbright and Stephen and Julie loved catching up with her. Stephen and Julie also had the opportunity to see old friends at the Hotel Excellence Awards, with whom lifelong friendships have been forged.

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.
