I guess I have to finally admit summer has slipped away and fall is here. We had a wedding in the city last weekend and the weather suited our flowers. It was a crisp, chilly day, and our fall color palette blended in with the leaves in Central Park. Sweet gum, bronze amaranthus, peach dahlias, hydrangeas from Ecuador and Holland, pale yellow stock (so fragrant!), red and yellow ranunculas, and seasonal berries all graced the ballroom at The Essex House. As we move towards the season of thanks and giving, the flowers in the flower market are alive with brilliant colors and lots of texture. I am so lucky to do a job I love. Our couple this last weekend was like many of our couples we work with. They become a part of the Soiree family, and on their wedding day, I feel like I am sending them off to college. I look forward to ‘adopting new kids’ as we book our weekends for 2006 weddings. Our summer is almost full, so don’t hesitate to contact us. We would love to be a part of your special day.
