L'Olivier Halloween Party at Brookfield Place!

This past Saturday, October 29th from 12 to 3 pm, L’Olivier joined in on the Halloween spirit at Brookfield Place for the annual Halloween Party! We watched from the Winter Garden as Brookfield’s master pumpkin carver transformed our pumpkin using our intricate floral design! We also welcomed all of the little ones clad in their Halloween costumes to come and paint their very own mini pumpkins to take home. And of course, the festivities wouldn’t be complete without some early trick-or-treating!

Check out some of the photos from this super fun event - We were thrilled to take part in this year’s celebration to kick-off Halloween! Follow us on Facebook or Instagram @lolivierfloralatelier for some more snapshots. See you next year!

LUXE IN BLOOM

Last Thursday, September 22nd, Luxe Interiors + Design Magazine and The Bright Group invited its readers and interior design enthusiasts to their “What’s New What’s Next” event, “LUXE IN BLOOM” at The Bright Group’s showroom in the New York Design Center.

 

Editor in Chief Pamela Jaccarino joined our very own Olivier Giugni for a discussion and a hands-on workshop on how to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind floral arrangements to decorate your home with a modern twist. Olivier was thrilled to share his expertise on floral design and gave attendees a step-by-step tutorial on how assemble his unique creations. Black calla lilies, ornitogalum, hydrangea, green emerald roses and fern, and his purple Phalaenopsis orchid garden were among the arrangements he selected for this presentation.

 

Guests were also invited to experience Olivier’s collection of three candles, Vert de Vert, Cuir Vegetal, and Mai Flower, as well as his exclusive book signing of “Living Art: Styling Your Home With Flowers.” We are so happy about the turn out and that everyone enjoyed this special, sold out event!

Floral and fashion unite this NY Fashion Week!

At the occasion of NY Fashion Week, L’Olivier Floral Atelier and Dümmen Orange, one of the world’s leading floral breeders, saluted iconic fashion house J. Mendel – L’Olivier created a floral interpretation of one of Gilles Mendel’s Spring 2017 designs.

From September 12th to the 15th, we invited visitors to L’Olivier’s Brookfield Boutique to discover our life-size, whimsical, floral adaptation of Gilles Mendel’s original sketch, and for a chance to meet the designer himself. By following us on Facebook and on Instagram @lolivierfloralatelier, and by posting your “Favorite J Mendel Floral Look,” we gave our followers a chance to attend our exclusive, private cocktail event on September 15th where we celebrated the collaboration, courtesy of Cointreau. One lucky raffle winner was gifted the original, autographed sketch, as well as a gorgeous floral arrangement.

We were so happy to commemorate Gilles Mendel on this year’s NY Fashion Week, and so glad that all of our guests had a wonderful time. Looking forward to next year’s celebration, and a special thank you to J Mendel, Dummen Orange, Cointreau, and Brookfield Place for making it all a reality!

BASTILLE DAY with L'OLIVIER

BASTILLE DAY with L'OLIVIER

Joyeux Quatorze Juillet!  For Bastille Day, we got into the spirit and showed our national pride with a 12 foot tall, white Eiffel Tower displayed at our Brookfield Place location.  We imagined the French flag with a trio of our signature preserved roses in blue, white and red!  Preserved roses are amazing and can last up to one year without being watered!

All week we welcomed families and children giving away our L’Olivier coloring books and crayons, encouraging little ones to create their own flowers and plants.  We also raffled off a $125 floral arrangement to a lucky winner that was announced on July 16th during Brookfield Place’s day-long promotion of Bastille Day.

Check out a few pictures from our celebration!

FLOWER HOUR

FLOWER HOUR
People always ask me how our team of amazing floral designers at L'Olivier create such magnificent arrangements.  So, we came up with the idea of FLOWER HOUR, an event that gives you the opportunity to work with these Masters to come up with your very own customized floral art!  
This week, we partnered with leading world flower breeder, Dümmen Orange, inviting customers and friends to channel their floral artist within to create their very own floral arrangements at our signature FLOWER HOUR event.  With the purchase of a vase, we gifted roses, gerberas and other new, stunning varieties from Dümmen Orange.  L'Olivier's team of designers was on-site to assist everyone with their custom floral art!  
The imaginative designs from all our guests were truly inspirational!  Check out pictures from our incredible day:

L'OLIVIER FATHER'S DAY

L'Olivier Floral Atelier and Dümmen Orange got into the Father’s Day spirit by introducing a unique collection of baby red anthurium plants that were donated to the first 100 customers who stopped by our Brookfield Place Boutique.  Customers were invited to customize their anthurium plants with stickers and personal messages to Dad right on the pot!  Instead of purchasing the plants, we took donations of any amount to benefit nearby local public school PS 89.   

Taking inspiration from the ancient Chinese ‘Wishing Tree’ that has been part of their culture for over 700 years, with each donation from the anthurium plants, we asked people to share their love with a special wish to Dad that would be attached to a customized Manzanita tree.  It was so much fun to see both children and adults writing messages and tying colorful ribbons to the branches to help create this magnificent Wishing Tree that will be donated to PS 89 and auctioned off to benefit the school’s programs.  Now that's what I call a Happy Father's Day for all! 

Love and flowers,
