Ovando

A little sunshine for this rainy day. In the West Village, there’s a beautiful flower shop on the corner of Christopher and Bleecker Street. It’s called Ovando and the walls are painted black, fresh flowers and arrangements provide all the colors in the world.

This place is officially a flower shop/design company and they’ve done work for brands ranging from MoMA to the Four Seasons and Saks.

They also carry what I like to call “flower accompaniments,” things like pots and trays, and these shiny gold and copper bowls. Gorgeous. I came with Diana a few weeks ago, and again with Lisa last week to select an arrangement for an event.

This is the one we picked! Orchids always make me think of Hawai’i.

The do mini-versions as well – $35 each compared to $120 for the larger one.

Packed into deep black bag and off we go!

    I agree orchids remind me of Hawaii, but then again most any tropical flowers does :p

    Lovely! I like that it has a very distinct art/style direction

    Hi Kat! Very true! I only wish we could get hibiscus here in NYC! :)Hi Tracy! Indeed! I always thought of it more as an art shop than flower shop. It runs on the pricey side, so I definitely save purchases here for special occasions.
