A lovely customer’s response to, “Would you like to attach a handwritten gift message with your arrangement?”

“No message – just glad that you are back up and running.”

Élan Flowers, New York City’s oldest flower shop, is open for business and it has become a family affair. 

With our designers’ concern to leave their homes to come to work amidst the environment COVID-19 has brought, (which we wholeheartedly support) we have managed to crank up the gears of our small business by keeping it in the family. My husband, Patrick, wakes early to bike down from Chelsea to our SoHo shop to put the flowers in water and begin designing arrangements. I remain at home as the immune-compromised member of the family and answer the phones forwarded to my cell phone. I answer emails, print orders and handwrite the gift cards, entering delivery information into Google Docs for Patrick to read as he works. Our son, volunteers by sweeping the floors and breaking down boxes for recycling, doing the grocery shopping and feeding the newest family member, the sourdough starter. Our daughter, home from college, and still in finals, helps by walking to the shop a few times a week to prep gift wraps for the floral orders. At night she helps me write gift cards.

As we move towards Mother’s Day (and since we have received the blessed PPP loan) we have added one designer who bikes from the Lower East Side to work in a separate room and now, our wonderful events coordinator/administrative has joined, working from her home in Brooklyn. It’s been quite a journey, but we are beyond grateful to be healthy and to have a business to return to. 

These times are tough, but we find ourselves so lucky that we are able to safely “deliver” our motto, “Be Kind” to the strong and resilient residents that make New York City so special.

On March 8th we were delighted to celebrate International Women’s Day as the world took a day to honor women everywhere. As a female driven business we know that women bring a level of creativity, passion and compassion that makes the world a kinder place. Of course we don’t need a designated day to recognize the beauty and power of being a woman, but we will gladly seize every opportunity to have a party. And so we did….Our designers created posies of flowering mimosa to hand out to the women that stopped by our Soho shop. The official flower of Women’s Day is the Mimosa. It blooms in early spring and is a perfect symbol of the vibrant and lovely spirit of women.We loved meeting women throughout the day who shared their warmth, gratitude and generous spirit with us. Thanks to all our friends, neighbors and clients who stopped by to share a smile with us!

Women who rock

Where do we go to find inspiration? Sometimes we find it in the everyday and sometimes we need to venture farther afield. We had the great joy to travel to Provence at the end of June, during the height of the lavender season. We expected to be amazed by the lavender fields and we were; we expected to come home with armfuls of essential oil, and we did. But we found so much more inspiration and we are filled to the brim with inspiration. The bread, the cheese, olives, melon, and the rosé….the ROSÉ!! Tres Magnifique!

We hope you will join us in September as we celebrate the inspiration of Provence. We will feature a special floral arrangement, products and wine from Provence….stay tuned for more…

Lavender fields near Roussillon

Shutters add pops of color on stone houses in the village of Gordes.

Courtyard of Abbaye de Senanque – a Cistercian abbey near the village of Gordes.

Drying laundry with a view in the village of Sault.

The village of Sault is surrounded by fields of lavender.

Star jasmine makes everything fragrant and beautiful.

Shopping in Aix-en-Provence – getting inspiration for our Soho shop.

The colors in Roussillon are especially vivid and beautiful.

Can’t help but feeling the romance of Provence.

Élan invites you to a day in the life of our bustling design studio as we create flowers for a very special event, the Hudson River Park Playground Committee luncheon. Designers start production on 30 Dusty Pink centerpiece arrangements, that include white hydrangea, secret garden roses, dusty miller, pink rice flower accented with anenomes and blush ranunculus. 

Delivery begins early in the morning after the arrangements are carefully packed for transport. Each arrangement gets a bit of TLC before being put in place, ready to create the perfect ambiance for a sparkling event.

Élan Flower’s new HOME COLLECTION is inspired by our clients –  neighbors, friends and colleagues who stop by our shop over and over to for a bundle of hydrangea, branches for their entryway or a candle for their table.
Since we moved into our new home at 26 Grand Street we have enjoyed making friends in the neighborhood and helping them with their projects, giving plant or flower care tips as we fill their own container with the flowers or plants of their choosing and chatting about family milestones as they choose a greeting card or bundle of French lavender just because…
We want to invite all of our clients to add a touch of Élan in their home with our designer curated collection of bundled blooms and everything you need to keep them lovely and happy. And some more touches of comfort and style to top it off.
The definition of Élan: with energy, style and panache. With our new HOME COLLECTION you can fill your home with Élan anytime.
Bayleaf and Tangerine Wreath
U.S. Apothecary basket of body care products
Lavender from France
Simply Curated Candles
Plant Mister and Watering Can Duo
Be inspired by our NEW HOME COLLECTION

Élan Flowers thrilled to be invited to collaborate with fashion designer Mimi Prober for NY Fashion Week after building a friendship during her many visits to our shop on Grand Street. We were intrigued by her botanical dye techniques using dried flowers and leaves and, when we first began giving her our dead flowers, we had no idea about the beautiful garments that she was creating in her studio just down the street. What a happy discovery to learn what an amazing artist had walked through our doors!

A huge thank you to Women’s Wear Daily for the feature on our collaboration with Mimi for her spring collection show:

It takes a village: Community, or the lack thereof, is an ongoing topic of conversation, as ‘Vanishing New York’ blogger Jeremiah Moss can attest. But Mimi Prober, a designer who specializes in ‘creating modern heirlooms using antique textiles,’ created her spring collection with the help of Élan Flowers.

Quote from WWD article:

“The designer relies on local fiber farms, artisans and New York-based manufacturers to create textiles design and one-of-a-kind pieces. About a year ago en route to People’s Revolution’s Grand Street office, where she keeps a space, she started dropping by the local florist. “I got really excited because I’ve always used natural color dyes in my process. I’d always wanted to collaborate with a florist because they have a ton of waste, and flowers that they throw away, that can be used,” she said. 

It just so happened that they were on board with her design philosophy and they started giving them flowers for natural dying. For spring, they offered her roses, hydrangeas,sunflowers, and wildflowers to use to create natural dyes for the collection. “They’re familiar with what I do. And they created this kind of beautiful flowing forest as a backdrop,” said Prober… “

Please read more of the Women’s Wear Daily feature about our collaboration with Mimi during NYFW Spring/Summer 2018.
