WEDDING STYLISTAS: Maria’s Trip to the Flower Market

March 26, 2009

daffodil3You’d think I owned a flower shop with all of my recent trips to the flower market!  Actually, I’m planning the annual flower special for our September/October 2009 issue, and I’m looking everywhere for ideas and objects to include in the massive 32-page section.  Up and down this otherwise non-descript midtown NYC block, the sidewalks are blooming with plants, cut flowers, and branches.  The flowers that speak to me today are mini daffodils.  These cheerful yellow stars are only available NOW—the chilly month before spring really arrives.  Plastic pots of six plants will cost you about $7.  Buy five and mass all of the blooms into a 24-inch long planter.  Perfect for an escort table or wherever you want a showy, vibrant accent.  This dramatic and affordable spring statement will last at least a week and long after the party’s over.  —Maria, Wedding Stylistas
