What's your job at Artistic Blossoms?

I am a designer at AB as well as manage the Artistic Blossoms website, blog, and social media. Even though I'm in New York City, I split my time between New York and Boston to get back and design.

What are you doing in New York City? 

Art! I am currently in my last year of my MFA in sculpture. I do installation based work and have a studio in Tribeca. My experience and education as an artist has a huge impact on my work with flowers (and vice versa). Sometimes I even use fresh elements in my art installations!

What do you think about Pantone's Color of the Year for 2017?

I think Greenery is a fresh and luscious color for 2017. It is a color that will translate well with florals. Adding lots of fun textured greens like ferns or banana leaves, green hydrangea, and succulents will add rich natural warmth to any floral display. Bring on the green!

What's the best way to make a table setting truly unique?

Other than beautiful blossoms, I think a vase or vessel can take any centerpiece to the next level. I personally love mercury glass, because it is elegant and delicately reflective. If you have candles mixed on the table, the light shimmers against the mercury glass. I happen to love any metallic touches. 

What’s your favorite trend for 2017?

Bridal Magazines are saying color is going to make a comeback in 2017. I say, woo hoo! I love color and there are so many beautiful blossoms out there in an array of colors. I think for weddings or events, rich palettes can create a look that is fun, while still elegant. Don't get me wrong, subtle palettes are beautiful but color has personality! 


What's the best part of your job?  

Working with my mom and sister. They are so incredibly talented and it is such a gift to get to work with them. We always have fun designing and the AB studio is always filled with laughter and good energy.  

Camille and I also have a fun behind the scenes instagram account called Daughters of AB , be sure to check us out @daughtersofab

Pantone Color of the Year 2017: Greenery

New Year, New Color. This year's color according to Pantone is Greenery, a fresh, springy yellow-green that's full of energy. Greenery is a great shade to incorporate into florals, whether it's with textural foliage or green blossoms. Lush and natural, any green can add a little interest to your overall palette.

Below are some of our favorite palettes with Greenery:

1.  Sunny & Bright

Artistic Blossoms Boston Wedding

Tying the Knot in Truro

We love this wedding video by City Point Films from one of our weddings over the Summer! It was such a romantic day with beautiful pink tones, dusty blues, and hints of lemon. The Pamet Harbor Yacht & Tennis Club was an absolutely gorgeous oceanside spot and the event was  planned to perfection by The Perfect Plan. A wonderful Cape Cod wedding!
