Ariston Floral Boutique
425 Lexington Ave., Midtown
Ariston is a great go-to florist for Manhattan flower deliveries. They have two locations, one in Chelsea and one in Midtown, and the website has a wide array of flowers and plants to choose from: Green cymbidium orchids mixed with hydrangea, peonies and callas, Bird of Paradise plants, and much more. Their bread and butter, though, is the kind of compact glass-vase arrangements that are particularly brilliant for brightening an office desk.

Ellen Weldon
222 Fifth Ave., Midtown
Ellen Weldon has been creating lavish invitations for New York weddings for close to three decades. And does she know what she’s doing? Let’s put it this way: Estée Lauder was her first client. A specialist in the art of calligraphy, Weldon offers different styles, ranging from the more printed-looking type that is straight caps to the dramatic swirling font that is Venetian. Be sure to allow at least three months, especially if your heart is set on one of Weldon’s custom monograms for the invitations.

Lewis Miller Design
803 6th Ave., 4th Floor, Midtown
New Yorkers have been taken aback by the totally random, sumptuously over-the-top flower arrangements that have been sprouting up on street corners, around trash cans, and over city landmarks these last two years. This exercise in random delight is the work of Lewis Miller and his team of florists. Miller grew up a California farmer’s kid. Horticulture school followed a childhood spent in the garden, and now he runs a large studio in New York City. He is a true creative. For an artist like Miller, flowers can elevate a humble city block. Imagine what the man can do with a wedding. To get an idea, flip through his coffee table book (published by Rizzoli) or request a meeting at his studio.
