Welcome to Flower Market28 NY
Hello, and welcome to Flower Market28 NY, the first floral design blog dedicated to the fabulously famous New York City Floral Market, located in the heart of Manhattan’s Chelsea district. I am Trish and I will be your reporter.
As owner and creative director of Trish O’Sullivan Floral Design, located in New York City for 25 years, and as Director of the prestigious New York Botanical Garden Floral Design program, I can tell you that flowers and floral design are my passion. My mission is to inspire floral designers and flower enthusiasts worldwide to bring the message of beauty and love to this glorious planet of ours through beautiful floral design art. And, there is no better place to begin than “The Floral Design Capital” of the world - 28th Street in New York City.
Designers, here are brief descriptions of the amazing treasures found in each theme we will be covering. I hope you enjoy being part of the creative process of a NYC floral designer:
While all New York designers are independent and wildly creative, we all have one thing in common… The Flower Market on 28th Street. In our Trending Now postings I invite you to step into the buzzing atmosphere of the 28th Street floral wholesalers. Vibrant photos of the latest lush and exquisite seasonal flowers will give you first hand knowledge of the current floral material being selected by NYC designers. Experience the joyful surprise of the first arrivals of new floral materials and varieties in amazing colors and exotic textures that always spark ground breaking floral art.
Our Flower Lab postings give insight into the latest best selling vases and containers. And with up to date cutting edge news on floral supplies from ribbons to floral clippers you will be spot-on current. In the Lab is where you will find discussions about floral products that are the tools of the trade, along with professional "how to" information.
Interviews In the Green Room provide an exclusive inside look into the creative lives and floral passions of leading designers on the New York floral scene - from sophisticated Manhattan to Bohemian Brooklyn. Join us as we step into the NY floral world as they share their thoughts on the latest floral material, current design trends and floral design forecasts with stunning pictures of their floral art.
On the Street is our birds' eye view of floral designers in action. You will get to know the designers and their choices of floral pallets that change the landscape of floral design daily, along with the cast of characters that help to make it all happen. The fun and flower filled photos are an intimate connection to what's happening now in the market, making you a member of this fabulous and wildly creative family of New York City floral designers.
Photo Studio spotlights Mother Nature. These radiant photos will give you the opportunity to stop and really see - see the essence of nature…pure love. Please share these photos of beauty - they are the most perfect of gifts.
Thank you for your love of beautiful flowers. Together we can create magic one floral design at a time.
Yours in beauty,
My reporting for Floral Market28 NY will bring you firsthand experience of the market from professional NYC floral designers as they select blossoms from the stacks and stacks of breathtaking flowers arriving daily from Holland, France, Italy, South America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and all around the globe. These beauties dazzle the eye each and every time we designers shop the market. To our pure delight, buckets and buckets of exquisite fresh and blooming flowers, braches, leaves, vines and berries are delivered from local farms and from across the entire USA fill wholesalers’ shops and line the street. I will bring this creative floral design energy from New York to you – both for you to enjoy and also to provide inspiration. It is also my pleasure to bring to you important practical information, such as where to purchase the latest floral supplies, salesperson contacts and more.
