Bees Knees in Allston!

Earlier this month we celebrated the opening of Bee’s Knees second location in Allston, MA and are thrilled to announce we are now apart of the Bees Knees family! You can find our second floral shop located inside 1316 Commonwealth Ave, inside Allston’s newest and hottest dining destination.

Like our boutique inside Restoration Hardware at the center of Boston’s Back Bay, our shop inside Bee’s Knees in Allston has a personality all it’s own. You will find charming indoor plants, sweet succulent terrariums, and carry out bouquets ready made for you! The quaint and cozy nature of Bee’s Knees has allowed us the opportunity to make smaller, more intimate indoor arrangements, still true to the nature and design style of Orly Khon Floral. We hope you pick up a treat for yourself, or become inspired to treat a loved one! (Oh, and not to mention the food here is pretty amazing as well.)

If you haven’t been yet, we insist that Bee’s Knees in Allston is a must see- Or, we should say, a must eat experience. Hope to see you there!

A special thank you and congratulations to Serena and Phil who tied the knot on Saturday May 23rd at the Church of the Covenant on Newbury Street, Boston, and took their reception to the Boston Harbor Hotel to celebrate with over 180 friends and family members, where we had the wonderful task of creating rich and fruitful florals to fill the room and air.

It was truly a magnificent reception filled with energetic bright hues, saturated tones, lush florals flowing over white linens. Lively centerpieces were styled with coral and orange free-spirit roses, vibrant greenery, and bursts of bold yellow. For the entry table, we played with long cascading vines of smilax spiraled inside tall cylinder vases, framing bundles of viburnum stalks styled with italian ruscus. Limes floated underneath bouquets of free-spirit roses for a matrimony of citrus and sherbet tones, enticing the eye with wild texture and delicious color. These wildly vibrant pieces filled the Warf room of the BHH with life and warmth, as if a forest had peacefully grown inside it. Thank you to the bride and groom for allowing us to design such  bold floral statements on your special day, and all of our warmest wishes!

These beautiful photos were captured by David of Allegro Photography, and special recognition to wedding planners Edna and Kasie of EFD Creative.

Best of Boston 2015

We here at Orly Khon Floral are truly honored and beyond humbled to be chosen as this year’s Best Florist for Best of Boston 2015. The past two years have been full of change, sacrifice, and adventure- after 10 years in the wedding industry, the opening of our floral boutique inside Restoration Hardware, Boston over two years ago has introduced us to so many new and exciting opportunities. To put it lightly, it has not always been a simple feat to balance our event business with our interior design work, which is why as of the past year we have merged both our wedding business, Tangerine Creations, and the home floral design work we do at Orly Khon Floral Boutique, into a single and simple entity: Orly Khon Floral.

It is with so much enthused surprise and gratitude that after what has been a year of sometimes turbulent, often trying, and always beautiful end results, to receive this amazing recognition of our services and the hard work we do. The sky has been the limit; there has been no design project too difficult, or wedding too large. We have been so fortunate to work with such creative clientele who have challenged our expertise as florists and allowed us to grow, always ready to deliver a stunning finished product. We are so thankful of every wedding and every design project we’ve been apart of throughout the years for trusting and believing in our work. We do what we love, and you have been so gracious to allow us to share that passion.

Inspiring Days at Lotus Land

 

I started off the year with an amazing trip to Santa Barbara, CA for the Florabundance Inspirational Design Days.  I traveled with two of my closest friends who are also floral designers in Boston — John LaRoche, owner of Blue Guava and Teresa Yang Fung of Mimosa Fresh Flower Design. This trip was so inspirational on so many different levels and I am thrilled to share this experience with you below.

Hi! This story would not be complete without mentioning the location because it was SO beautiful. The workshop was located at an amazing botanical garden called Lotusland. We explored the abundant grounds of Lotusland, admiring the depth of creativity and design put into this land. Many trees and cacti hung over our heads which would naturally draw attention to the largest hanging bunch of donkey tail (or burro’s tail) I have ever seen. Everything so healthy and fresh and full of life. I could have spent days in Lotusland, discovering a new nook of plant life each day.

In addition to Amy Merrick, other amazing floral designers were featured — Sarah Winward, Holly Chapple, Amy Osaba, Francoise Weeks, Tricia Fountaine, + Alicia Schwede.

Most of the time you can catch us giggling to each other. During this trip we were focused. I am only half-kidding.

It felt really good to be a kid in a playground for a few days. This trip has left me so inspired to try new techniques in my own work. I am such a believer in learning and growing through collaboration — it’s something I recommend in any industry, to take a field trip and learn from others in your field.

Thanks for listening!

XO,
