Our Favorite NYC Florists
Our preferred event florists approach their practice with a discerning eye, eager to collaborate on designs that will not just complement but deepen the ethos of your gathering. From seemingly found, organically inspired bouquets to striking, almost otherworldly arrangements, these florists add nuance and color to an event’s look and feel.
Designer, art director, and photographer Miguel Yatco is the creative force behind Brooklyn-based floral studio Agos Muni. The Tagalog name - a reference to the Miguel’s roots in Manila - loosely translates to “an influx of thoughts, musings, or reflections,” and he describes his arrangements as “musings in a vessel.” Striking and sculptural, Agos Muni has created floral designs for a range of clients across food, fashion, and design including Gohar World, Eny Lee Parker, Jenna Lyons, and Sandy Liang.
Brittany Asch is the designer behind Brrch Floral, a bicoastal studio creating arrangements for clients in New York and Los Angeles. Guided by a deep respect for natural landscapes, Brittany’s vibrant designs imagine worlds that verge on fantasy, elevating everyday materials through surreal juxtapositions. A frequent collaborator with artists working in other media, Brittany has collaborated and consulted with musicians and filmmakers, as well as fashion and beauty brands including Gucci, Fenty, Glossier, and KKW Beauty to name a few.
Floral designer Emily Thompson approaches her work as a collaboration “with the rough hand of nature.” Drawing on her roots in the wild beauty of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom and guided by formal training as a sculptor at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, she combines seasonal, locally grown and foraged materials with less frequently used branches and undergrowth into animated arrangements, magnificent yet natural in appearance rather than designed. Architectural Digest, Chanel, Frieze, The Museum of Modern Art, Roman and Williams, and Vogue represent just a selection of her notable clients across fashion and the arts.
This Brooklyn-based floral design studio works primarily with locally foraged and sustainably grown flowers to create lush, seasonal designs. Drawing from her broad creative experience across fashion, sculpture, photography, and floral design, studio owner Katherine Carothers aspires to create arrangements that are at once timely and timeless. Select clients include Côte, Pace Gallery, Clare Vivier, and Lee’s on Canal.
Robin Rose founded her Chinatown floral design studio Fleurotica in 2019 after years of working in restaurants, most notably Dimes. Much as the name suggests, her abundant arrangements indulge the senses, thoughtfully provoking but never offending. Robin approaches her practice as an art, selecting her blooms to convey meaning, and frequently collaborates with creatives working in other media in music, fashion, and food. Select clients include Luar, Studs, and Kin Euphorics.
Growing up on a farm in Arkansas, Molly Ford loved to pick blooms from the backyard garden and fashion them into simple arrangements, inspired by her mother who handcrafted much of their furniture from grapevines and adorned their rooms with colorful tropical murals. That same whimsical spirit permeates the sculptural arrangements from her Brooklyn-based floral studio, effortlessly bending nature to fit the shapes in her mind’s eye. Notable clients and collaborators include SEY Coffee, From Lucie, and The New York Botanical Garden.
Named after founder Taylor Patterson’s childhood farm in Delaware, Fox Fodder Farm is a Williamsburg-based floral studio and shop focusing on seasonal arrangements with a minimal environmental impact. Fox Fodder’s organic aesthetic yields arrangements that appear more found than formally composed, with an emphasis on locally grown and foraged flowers whenever possible.
The Japanese term Kabuki traditionally refers to a traditional form of theater, bold and dramatic yet at the same time minimal and reserved. This same tension is at the heart of Kabuki NY, the floral design studio Naoko de Oliveira Yoshii launched in 2020 with a residency at Canal Street Market. Select clients include Calvin Klein, The Beacon Theatre, Madison Square Garden, and Radio City Music Hall.
At Love Me Not Floral, Michelle Pelletier demonstrates not only how flowers can say what we really feel, but also how they can make us feel, as well as how they can bring us closer together. Since founding her studio in 2020, she has created arrangements for a range of notable clients such as Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Elle Decor, EQ3, and more.
Metaflora is a Manhattan-based floral studio founded by Marissa Competello, an experienced fashion stylist who also runs the cult favorite downtown dance class MOVES. Formally speaking, Marissa’s minimalist arrangements are rooted in obscure juxtapositions, gathering and putting together pieces much as she would an outfit. Metaflora’s client roster spans a variety of beloved New York restaurant and wellness businesses like Dimes and Sky Ting, as well as designers such as Rachel Comey and Studio Mellone.
Building on her previous experience in fashion and graphic design, native New Yorker Ryan Norville founded Oat Cinnamon in 2019, a holistic creative studio offering bespoke floral arrangements of all sizes, alongside event design and interior decorating services.

Founded by Lutfi Janania in 2020, Brooklyn-based design studio Rosalila uses fresh blooms along with dehydrated, preserved florals, precious stones, rare barks, and other natural materials to reimagine interiors, landscapes, and other venues. A self-identified botanical sculptor, Janania translates sketches into full-scale productions, eagerly taking on experimental, provocative, and daring projects for a range of clients.
