Ovando New York

A few months ago, someone on Twitter sent me a tweet asking for a florist recommendation in New York City.  They were there on business and doing client entertaining at a restaurant and wanted to get some centerpieces.

Of course, only one florist came to mind because I visit it every time I’m in Manhattan.  Ovando!  They have two shops, but I usually stay in the West Village and love to go by their location on Bleecker.  It’s my go-to place for inspiration, for hostess gifts and just to put a smile on my face.  You can tell from their windows that they don’t take themselves too seriously, and yet everything is seriously beautiful!

Getting inspiration from places outside of the state of Minnesota is crucial and Ovando’s architectural arrangements make me swoon!  How they get the botanicals to behave as they do must be a highly guarded secret because I’ve just not seen florals like this anywhere else.


The tablescape in their 65th & Madison location is a modern take on a bit of a traditional look.  Gorgeous.

True gorgeousness!
