ariel dearie flowers

by Grace Bonney

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
