For the past two years, I have traveled to New York City for the Chapel Designers conference for a week of everything-flower-related. Here are few of my favorite memories from the whirl-wind trip this year.

My favorite coffee/flower shop right in the heart of the flower market. This is my dream. 🙂
Dutch Flower Line
Buvette – a darling gastrotheque in the heart of the city. It was charming and served up a delicious brunch.
Charming…just missing a bouquet of flowers tucked inside that basket.
Buvette – You squeezed in where ever you could find a spot, if you were lucky. We brunched at the counter.
Buvette – our nice waiter.
Hellebores just might be one of my new favorite flowers.
A fresh selection of Springs flowers for Naomi deManana’s arrangement.
David Austin’s Keira.
Variety of gerber daisy
David Austin’s Juliet.
A bouquet I designed with “extras”.
Funky variety of Grevillea.
Light pink ranunculas.
Yellow & green ranunculus.
Inside the cooler at the Dutch Flower Line – this sight made me giddy with delight. All the ranunculus you could ever want.
