Moved by Greatness: Ariella New York

One of the benefits of being at FlowerSchool New York is meeting some pretty incredible florists. I’ve worked for a number of the Master Florists who teach at FlowerSchool New York but never had the opportunity to cross paths with The Great Ariella Chezar. Known for her elegantly organic style of arranging flowers, her 2002 book, “Flowers for the Table: Arrangements and Bouquets for All Seasons,” introduced us all to the wonders of incorporating fruits, branches and local organic material along with our flowers. The result is magic. And her mastery in creating with the colors, textures and forms of nature is magical.

We may all have the chance to cross paths with Greatness. Ariella Chezar has opened a flower shop in partnership with FlowerSchool Executive Director, Calvert Crary, in FlowerSchool’s previous space in Tudor City. At Ariella New York no detail escapes Ariella’s distinctively exquisite mark. The soft grey walls and the elegant grey packaging lend a calm and warm backdrop for her masterful floral concoctions. It is a treat to witness her create with seemingly effortless ease. I guess all Masters do. For more of her gorgeous photos of her luscious flowers visit here.

(If you have the chance, I highly recommend taking her Master Classes at FlowerSchool New York. Check website for listings.)
