Looking for a fun night out celebrating a great cause? Our exclusive charity partner, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, is hold their 12th Annual Evening of Laughter in Tribute to Madeline Kahn at Carolineson May 6th.
Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is the largest charity in the United States funding ovarian cancer research. Our mission is to fund scientific research that leads to more effective identification, treatment, and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer.
Each year there will be approximately 22,000 new cases of ovarian cancer in the United States, and about 15,500 women will die of the disease. Currently there is no effective means of early detection. Since 1998, OCRF has given over $50 million for ovarian cancer research. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, OCRF-sponsored researchers are developing innovative strategies for early detection; exploring the genetics that increase risk for ovarian cancer; understanding the underlying molecular biology of the disease; identifying new and better targets for treatment; and deciphering how and why ovarian cancer spreads, and how to stop it.
So Join OCRF for an evening of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a live auction, and stand-up performances from some of the best talent in the industry. This year’s lineup features Jim Gaffigan, Nikki Glaser, Phil Hanley, Robert Klein, Lisa Lampanelli, Kevin Meaney, and more. Stay tuned for updates on additional talent!

We finally had some amazing Spring weather this week and we certainly took advantage of it. We explored the flower market, made up some sweet posy bouquets, and took a trip to the Doughnut Plant. Hope everyone enjoyed the weather and has a nice weekend planned!
Now for the roundup…

On March 28, 2013, more than 1000 of New York’s most sophisticated engaged couples and professional wedding planners gathered for the annual New York Weddings Event. Guests strolled the aisles sipping cocktails as New York introduced them to everyone they needed to know to plan the perfect wedding. Over 130 companies participated, including floral designers, dress designers, stationers, photographers, DJs and many more.
We created a pop up flower shop and let guests create their own hand tied bouquets or grab a pre-made one. We had a blast and got to meet great people and other amazing vendors! Here’s some photos from the event that were taken by the very talented and fun Michael Webber of Studio Webber. If you want to see more photos from the evening head over to our Facebook page.
Well we are going to waste no time over here and start talking about Spring! I think everyone is ready for it and last week it officially arrived. Although even though Spring is here, the weather does not seem to have gotten the memo. Well anyway, since it’s finally here we wanted to give you a list of our favorite seasonal flowers that can be found in Spring.
It was a busy week around here for us. We celebrated one of our birthdays at the Black Door with cocktails and lots of cupcakes and some amazing events with some very talented vendors are in the works. Plus, having some bright flowers around makes everything a bit better.
Hope everyone had a fabulous week and enjoy your weekend! Here’s the roundup…
Happy Friday! This week’s roundup will be a St. Patty’s day edition because how could we not? So whether you are celebrating Saturday after the parade or Sunday on St. Patrick’s day itself, here is some fun party inspiration.
Apologies for the missing roundup last Friday. We were busy girls and instead of shooting the usual flowers, we had photos of ourselves taken. Check out the B Floral team shot by the amazing Michael Webber of Studio Webber…
But don’t worry, we’ve got a roundup for you this week. Hope everyone had a lovely week and have a great weekend!
Style Me Pretty has recently launched a new blog called Style Me Pretty Living. To say I’m obsessed is an understatement. It’s filled with DIY projects, recipes, home tours, and more. Best of all, just like Style Me Pretty, everything they feature is just gorgeous. I was especially inspired by the cocktails they have conjured up and wanted to share some of my favorites.
Pantone has released their Spring 2013 Color Report and all of the bright colors like Sunflower, Vibrant Orange, Poppy Red, and the color of the year, Emerald, have got us very excited for the upcoming season.
I love all the punchy, whimsical colors and can’t wait to see them incorporated in upcoming events. Some of my favorite pairings are nectarine and grayed jay, Tender Shoots and Emerald, and Monaco Blue and Poppy Red.
