1 empty vase leads to many, many more
ready to leave my six year post in fashion production, i resolved to open myself up to new opportunities and welcome a new calling. one july afternoon, i began to clear my work space of everything i had accumlated since 2005. all unnecessary clutter-inhibiting items had to go. and so they did, until i could no longer physically move the large box that everything had been tossed in to. feeling refreshed and pleased with my zen-like space i wished only for fresh flowers to fill the empty glass vase that remained on the far corner of my desk. with very few grab-and-go flower options in midtown, i considered ordering a bundle from a cool downtown boutique. dissuaded by the price tag i thought for a moment... if only there was another option, something in between... that a-ha! moment, the opening of the proverbial doors, certainly came a lot faster than expected, but i knew it wasn’t just a fleeting thought. i texted my sister right away. (we were always sharing our latest and greatest ideas.) she responded immediately, “yes! LOVE that.” i got right to work.
2h is named for my lovely east village domicile. more than just 2 characters on my door, 2h has become known for everything that has gone on in this apartment-shaped home. it’s a spot where i can delight in making everything an experience - however grand or subtle. whether it’s cocktails for a friend who’s popping by, hosting a pre-going-out-dancing soirée, my annual pumpkin carving party, or welcoming weekend guests, i love to make each occasion feel personal. i am now lucky enough to pour the same enthusiasm and love into flowers. i will offer an arrangement of your most favorite blooms, a vintage vase whose story speaks to you, and a hand-tied bundle to be taken on a first date. this may require a little rule breaking, some big risk taking, and a few sleepless nights, but i give my promise to deliver; inspired flowers for the people.
representative of my deep feelings for all things new york, most arrangements are named for a street or city spot that inspired or feels true to each design. our blog inside 2h
is our dedicated spot to spew all of the things that support this passion on a day to day basis. we’ll share what we like, that which inspires, the things we indulge in, tunes that keep us going, books that spark new ideas, and thoughts that are, like, seriously deep.
i continue to be ever so grateful for the love and support of the most amazing, talented, and wise family and friends. with their support 2h flowers boldly came into being and is encouraged to grow each and every day.
