Halloween is just around the corner, and despite its ghoulish leanings, Flowers of the World has found a way to make the holiday beautiful. This week’s windows feature a unique twist on classic fall elements: white miniature pumpkins and dramatic black dogwood branches, overflowing from a collection of glossy black vases.
As the weather turns cooler, Flowers of the World has been stocking a fall favorite, amaryllis. This week’s windows feature the Desire variety of the bloom, with a backdrop of lush, layered magnolia leaves. Thanks to its unique hollow stem, the amaryllis can be hung upside down; the water inside its stalk will keep it as hydrated. Come by the store this week, and watch as the amaryllis opens into a gorgeous fall flower!
Whether she’s wearing a dress made from flank steak or shopping sans pants, Lady Gaga has a style that is all her own. Her creativity — and her song “Beautiful Dirty Rich” — inspired this week’s windows at Flowers of the World, where our lead designer Lori, draped voluptuous black vases with lush magenta phalaenopsis orchids and luxurious black and purple crystals. Let us know if you think FOTW’s “Lady Gaga Fantasy” is as statement-making as the superstar songstress!
The change of seasons is evident all over New York City, but nowhere more so than at Flowers of the World, where our store windows reflect a transitional state of mind. This week’s installation, created by downtown designer Laura, transports visitors from summer to fall, with cymbidium orchids, in hues ranging from summery goldens to autumnal apricots and browns, adorning artful swirls of weeping willow branches.
