ariel dearie flowers

Last fall I was waiting in line for brunch at Five Leaves and stumbled upon the cutest little pop-up flower table. Rows of tiny arrangements were being sold and taken home in petite cups, and it took everything I had not to bring them all home. I tucked the florist’s card in my pocket and have been following her online ever since. Ariel Dearie is a Brooklyn-based florist who grew up surrounded by the romantic, overgrown courtyards of New Orleans. That loose, lush feel creeps into her work, whether it’s a small arrangement or a wedding bouquet. I love looking at flowers for inspiration inside, so if you’re interested in a little flower love this morning, click here to check out Ariel’s portfolio online. (You can check out her blog here, too.) xo, grace

Oh wow, the arrangement in the third photo down is really beautiful! I love the vase used, too. She’s really creative with the bases she chooses- definitely going to check out her blog!

The arrangement in the second photo down is intoxicating; I love how part of the boquet is winding its way down the table as if it’s looking for a snack. I am definitely inspired to use more fresh flowers in my home. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! I see what you mean -these are stunning! Romantic and classically beautiful -these could just as easily be from a centuries old still life oil painting! Love!


gorgeous — and nicely simple, too! I like how you can see and pay attention to the geometry of the leaves and the flowers because the color scheme is limited — either one color or shades on a spectrum.


These are absolutely lovely – thank you for featuring these flowers. I think the pink poppies are my fav. I can’t help imagining how wonderful it would be to live surrounded by these beauties all the time!


Does anyone know what the greenery in the last photo is–long burgundy leaves? Thanks!
