nyc floral designers: prudence designs

Today, as I was preparing a post on another great photographer, Ellen Silverman, she mentioned a collaboration she's working on with Grayson Handy of Prudence Designs of NYC (pictured above with partner Arturo Quintero). So I thought I'd take a look at their website... and wow, what a stunning representation of floral design - you'll love the opening sequence with the daschund, too.

The business was originally started by Arturo in his basement in 1993, but through hard work, Prudence Designs arrangements have graced the pages of magazines like House & Garden, Domino, and Elegant Bride, as well as the tables of some of New York's top events. This tall tulip arrangement was for The Horticultural Society of New York's 11th Annual Flower & Design gala, read more about that event here (image from New York Social Diary). The bouquet of fern curls, lady slipper orchids, chocolate artichokes, and scabiosa pods wrapped in coconut bark was featured in Elegant Bride (Fall '05).

Stay tuned for more delicious images from Ellen and Prudence Designs!
