Throwback Thursday: B Floral's Thanksgiving at Home

Thanksgiving is the time of year that kicks off the holiday spirit, bringing together family, friends, and loved ones. At B Floral, we love to show a little extra love to our Thanksgiving displays and tables - we're suckers for a great tablescape! Whether that be with florals or decor, china or a beautifully crafted meal, we're so excited to share with you our holiday at home.

Owner and lead designer, Bronwen Smith, spends her Thanksgiving holiday along the sunny shores of Palm Beach, staying at the Breakers with family. She always brings back a little inspiration, taking from the design and décor of the beautiful hotel, to motivate us here in the office! 

The B Floral team snapped photos of their Thanksgiving displays as well! From all over the country, we pride ourselves on togetherness and a meticulous eye to detail. Happy Holidays!


Our Favorite Holiday Tablescapes To Try The Season

As we dive into the holiday cheer, festive parties, and hosting guests, we wanted to share our favorite holiday tablescapes of the season to inspire your next event or family gathering. B Floral knows how to throw an exceptional themed event, having a meticulous eye for detail and a range of color coordination. Below is a roundup of our archives and past events to inspire your vision.


Event Recap: Change for Kids Super Chefs

 

Last week, B Floral supported a  wonderful event for the Change for Kids organization held at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers. The fourth annual Super Chefs event was organized to raise funds for underprivileged schools throughout New York City. 

The event was filled with a wide selection of gourmet tastings from celebrity chefs including Marc Murphy. In addition to snacking on a variety of small bites, guests participated in a live auction that raised more than $625,000 by night’s end! The crowd also heard an inspiring speech from Naomi, a student from a Change for Kids school, who gave insight into the amazing work of the organization.

 

B Floral created arrangements that embodied rich hues of reds, oranges, and yellows; these colors popped against the beautiful waterside views of the Hudson River.

We also created an assortment of arrangements for the cocktail tables, bars, and lounge areas. Florals such as roses, ranunculus, and calla lilies were chosen to add a variety of texture to the arrangements.

B Floral also designed two large statement pieces and created a floral runner filled with candles and greenery to welcome guests to the venue. Another out-of-the-box design element we created was a decorated podium using large blooms, which added a pop of color to the auction space. 

It was such a pleasure to be involved with Super Chefs and we’re so excited to participate again next year!


Event Recap: The Pink Agenda Annual Gala

Last week, B Floral had the honor of providing the floral design for The Pink Agenda’s Annual Gala at Three Sixty in Tribeca.

The Pink Agenda is a not-for-profit organization committed to raising money for breast cancer research and care, as well as awareness of the disease among young professionals. The Pink Agenda finds, funds, and partners with people and programs that are improving the lives of those suffering from breast cancer and conducting the groundbreaking research necessary to improve their odds.


B Floral decorated the welcome tables, cocktail tables, and bars with branded floral arrangements in dark pinks and pale pinks that embodied The Pink Agenda brand. 

Celebrity guests and honoree's of the night included: Giuliana Rancic, Bill Rancic, Willie Geist, Olivia Palermo, Tracey Anderson, and Hannah Bronfman (who DJ'ed the night away)!

Guests mingled, sipped on cocktails, and bid on (spectacular!) auction items. By the end of the night The Pink Agenda raised over $250,000! B Floral was so honored to play a role in this event and to do our part to further Breast Cancer research and awareness.

Thank you to everyone at The Pink Agenda for such an amazing night!


As Seen In

Livingly


As sad as it was to see summer go, the entire B Floral office is excited for cool weather and the upcoming holiday season! We teamed up with Livingly to provide their readers with unique ways to update a traditional holiday tablescape.

 

Our owner and lead designer, Bronwen Smith, shared tablescape tips on topics ranging from table settings to out-of-the-box centerpieces. We wanted to share a few design insights with you all before heading over to check out the full article here. Below are a few of our favorites:

 

  • It’s important to create fall centerpieces that will make a statement at your holiday gathering. Bronwen suggests ditching a traditional vase and instead use spray painted pumpkins filled with florals

  • Another way to leave a lasting impression on guests is to create a robust floral table runner using seasonal blooms and pine branches for either a winter or Christmas dinner party

  • It’s important to stay true to your design taste- if you prefer a simple color palette you can accent your table with bold silverware, plates, and vases for a festive pop

 

We’ve added a few of our favorite holiday images from our archives (that are also featured in the article) below!
