In Bloom New York
In Bloom New York is a family-owned-and-operated center that has spent more than 35 years bringing botanical beauty to a variety of events. A wing of Plant Shed New York Flowers, the shop's grizzled green-thumbs use their fluency in the secret language spoken only by flowers (Dutch) to craft creative floral arrangements from the freshest seasonal blossoms. For a multi-sensory massage that tickles the eyes as much as the nose, combine purple-hued lisianthus and cool hydrangeas with the warmth of dahlias and alstromeria, the concentric circles of ranunculus, and the classic beauty of the rose ($75). The delicate interplay of hydrangeas and dahlias with substantial kale ($100) adds a welcome dash of color to any black-and-white private eye's office. And few things bewitch a loved one like a mix-tape of hydrangeas, kale, and exquisitely delicate cymbidium orchids ($125). Whether looking to express romantic affection, friendly appreciation, or intimate knowledge of the color wheel, In Bloom has the soil-born symbols you need to convey emotions that so often elude words.
