NYC Flower Delivery Service Ignites Romance With Non-Typical Flower Arrangement
We had a request for flowers to make an impression on a woman our client was interested in. He told us her favorite color is yellow and she is a cheerful type of person.
Our client gave us a budget of $350 and he said he wanted something that was low, bright , cheerful and “not typical”. He wanted to treat her special… different than anyone else.
Our mission was to capture his feelings for her with a “non-typical” flower arrangement.
We often get these kinds of requests. As one of the oldest, high end florist in NYC, people often describe the situation and ask us to come up with a flower arrangement that will convey their feelings.
Well, it worked! She was thrilled!

Ladyslipper orchids (aka Cypripedium) are by far, the showiest and most popular of the hardy terrestrial orchids. There are 48 species total in northern temperate land masses around the world…the majority in East Asia.
The Native American Ojibwa tribe has a legend about the Ladyslipper orchid. It is a story of love between a wife and her husband. You can read about it here. .
Based on the legend, William Cullen Bryant wrote a poem about the Lady Slipper Orchid in 1832. https://potash.marlboro.edu/node/60
“None who loved thee beheld thee die;
They who heaped the earth on thy breast
Turned from the spot without a sigh.
There, I think, on that lonely grave,
Violets spring in the soft May shower;
There, in the summer breezes wave
Crimson phlox and moccasin flower (Ladyslipper orchid).”
Antique hydrangeas are old-fashioned blooming shrubs that have been around for centuries. They produce ball-shaped clusters of small, four-petaled flowers in several colors, including blue, green, white, and pink. These flowers are often used in wedding bouquets and last for years in dried flower arrangements.
With their lacy pompom tops, hydrangeas epitomize lush beauty. Flowers add enduring grace to any arrangement. Perfect for your wedding, event, resale or individual needs.
Antique Hydrangea symbolizes heartfelt emotions. It can be used to express gratitude for being understood. In its negative sense hydrangea symbolizes frigidity and heartlessness. According to a Japanese legend, a proud emperor used a bouquet of hydrangeas as an apology to the family of a girl with whom he was in love. The flowers have served as a representation of heartfelt feelings, whether of joy or sadness.
4th wedding anniversary flower
The blossoms of the Antique hydrangea are treasured for both their boldness and delicacy and are the flower symbol of the fourth wedding anniversary because hydrangeas possess enduring grace and beauty.
Mimosa – Mimosa is hard to find because it blooms for a very short period in early summer. Its symbolism rivals that of a red rose on Valentine’s day. Mimosa has a lovely scent and symbolizes ‘secret love’.
On their website Michele Collins Vergara and Andres Vergara say: “The mimosa trees blossomed, almost as if overnight, and are laden with those beautiful, pink fragrant blooms. Mimosa is a tree that always fills me with such joy. It is truly a magnificent tree that blooms in June, with sprays of deep pink that expand out from a base of white tendrils. Her flower’s fragrance, for some reason, always makes me think of champagne, because it is this bubbly and happy smell that lifts my spirits. I always know her by her smell. This waft of scent in the air in early June that makes me think of, well, joy and the magic of being alive. It is such a light and pleasant scent that words can not do it justice.”
