Celebration Florals Heads to NYC!

We recently returned from a wonderful trip to New York City!  How did this come about?  Social Media! We have followed a fellow designer on the east coast for many years.  Last year she asked via Twitter Who wants to come to NYC?  We were a bit slow last year (and had no idea how Twitter worked) and didn't attend. Instead, we followed along on her blog... Not this year!  Oh, what an experience and where to begin?I think a little bit at a time, is best.  There were so many amazing events, I just want to tell about all of them!
We flew to NYC on Saturday in order to be ready for the first event on Sunday night.  We had really no idea what to expect.  We all met up at Matthew Robbins Design Studio.  Our hostess,  Holly Heider Chappel greeted us at the door with a copy of Matthew's newest book.  Stepping over that threshold signaled the beginning of our NYC Chapel Designer's flower adventure!  I am not sure we knew what to expect.  Almost 40 floral designers in the same room at the same time?  AND Matthew Robbins?  Wow...

Flowers!  Oh yummy! Flowers provided by Floribundance!


We all came home with Matthew's newest book Inspired!


Our first evening ended as we made our way back to our hotel in a floral haze!
