Ovando Flowers

We have been meaning to bring to your attention another fabulous Latin discovery we have made: Ovando Flowers. Sandra de Ovando is the mexicana behind
Apparently word of mouse just reviewed them and concured.

What are they great at and why?
Rare, exotic blooms, arranged so fabulously your jaw will drop.

Creator Sandra de Ovando is beyond genius - a ball of white flowers effortlessly floating in a tall glass cylinder, a pillow of petals, an elegant row of full rose buds magically floating in a long, narrow, rectangular, glass container.

Yes, they do weddings and events.

You can also send flowers from there and whatever you send will always cause a stir and make someone scream, "I never saw anything like this! Ever!"

Consider it the "Moss" of flowers. The window displays of the store are outrageously chic - they stop me in my tracks every day.

For modernists only. To me that's not a shortcoming, but to a traditionalist, it may be.
Prices start at about $150. But it's worth every cent.

Insider tips
Send someone an arrangement when you want to impress.
They do plant arrangements too.
Get something colorful- the all-white thing has gotten played out.
Sent an arrangement once to Zac Posen, who is constantly receiving flowers, and everyone in the office called me, freaking out about how incredible it was.
What are they perfect for
Those with discerning taste who have seen it all and beg for something new.
Gucci and Armani hire Ovando to do events.
