FUCK YEAH, FLOWERS


Emily Thompson has just been crowned New York's "floral designer du jour."

Nobody who knows her expected any less.

I mean, I'd go for a tablescape of lady slipper orchids, maidenhair ferns, daffodils, crocuses, and dried beetles any day.

  1. just read that article at lunch, loved it.
    also:
    "When we described the aesthetic to other florists, the catalogs of bark containers fell off the shelves. Emily gets that it’s not Anthropologie or the Gift Show — that it’s more authentic.”
