Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and sometimes (not that we’re pointing fingers) people need a poke (or text) to head in the right direction.
Lookie over here at the newly opened VISIONS Floral & Event Design in Englewood, a lifestyle-oriented boutique floral design studio that has a sixth sense when it comes to creating the perfect arrangement, centerpiece or tabletop, yours included. These are sophisticated, high style, hail from New York, botanical connoisseur meets luxury event design kind of people, and they don’t mess around when it comes to aesthetics. Owners Sora Lee and Anthony Brown each have a floral and design pedigree that’ll turn your head in every direction. They’ve worked with companies like Cartier, Chanel, Christie’s and Hermes—and BTW, they’ve also been involved in several celebrity and VIP weddings. But before you think that VISIONS is out of your line of sight, know that all arrangements are completely made to order and will have you exclaiming, “Yay! I finally got the exact flowers I always wanted!”
On a recent visit, we spied orchids set in a moss covered ostrich egg, vine covered wooden benches, and tabletops that would make Martha swoon. Because they order directly from growers, their current stock includes perfect specimens that stay fresh for days: Cherry blossoms in early spring and French and Dutch Peonies just in time for Mother’s Day.
Husbands and other gift givers, listen up because now we’re going to tell you about Visions’ outta sight “Flower Concierge” service. This program is perfectly designed to keep everyone out of trouble by keeping track of special someone occasions, tastes and styles, and then texting personalized reminders. It takes all the guesswork (and the possibility of receiving something that is not desirable) out of the equation. Did we also mention that Lee and Brown are a husband-wife business team? It appears they’ve got an arrangement that works.
