Love is the Answer

LMD’s latest limited edition print is one of our most beloved Heart Flower Flashes. Since it is officially December and the heart is a symbol of love, we thought this Flash would make a wonderful gift. Six feet tall and filled with over 2,000 freshly cut blooms, this ombré beauty went up at dawn this September 11th, a somber day for all New Yorkers. But somehow this Heart Flash became a beacon of pure joy for people who needed their spirits lifted and a gentle reminder that there is beauty in this world and that they are deserving of it. LMD’s Flower Flashes are at once totally effortless and carefully conceptualized, resulting in a moment that is fresh, original and visually arresting. Even the most ephemeral street art is not usually this fleeting. Unlike graffiti, which is meant to leave its mark for as long as possible, the Flower Flashes try not to defy but celebrate Nature’s glory and impermanence.

This box also marks the first time we are offering a fully-realized tablescape design in LMD’s signature style. For the traditionalist, there are ivory tapers, glass rippled candlesticks and a mercury compote and companion vessels and votives. For the modernist, a similar offering in a rich copper and bronze color palette. These very special additions would make a great gift for a good friend who is also the ultimate hostess. These boxes are limited and can only be purchased with an American Express card with 10% of the proceeds going to the Crossroads Homeless Shelter at St. Bartholomew’s Church in New York City.  Click the link here to learn more and purchase one for yourself. http://lmdxamex.com

A Very Special Flower Flash Box

Our Flower Flash Boxes are back! I am excited about this new Flower Flash Box. It’s in partnership with The Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville.  I was a guest speaker at the show in 2018 and I fell in love with the beautiful community of Nashville. With the show being canceled this year, I wanted to show my support with a special floral offering in a gorgeous, autumnal color palette to get us in the mood for Thanksgiving. 10% of the proceeds of this box will be donated to The Cheekwood Estate and ECON charities, a public charity dedicated to improving the lives of children and families in the greater Nashville area, in the hopes that The Antiques and Garden Show will return in 2022, stronger than ever.

Inspired by the golden and jewel tones of fall, this box is filled with deep pink roses, delicate butterfly and plum ranunculus, speckled rainbow eucalyptus and much more. As always, delivery is included with your purchase as well as a link to a series of fun and instructional videos taught by yours truly.

Fighting the good fight…

Four years ago, this month, LMD created its first Flower Flash. It was a halo of bright flowers circling the IMAGINE mosaic in Central Park. Fast forward to 2020, and I don’t think anyone could have imagined the year we have had so far. However, we have found that doing good and partnering with like-minded brands to raise money and awareness for great causes and spreading joy through flowers and Flower Flashes is the way forward and the best way to stay positive. LMD is very happy to bring you this limited-edition Ralph Lauren Romance Pink Pony Edition Flower Flash Box in partnership with Ralph Lauren Fragrances and the brand’s first ever Pink Pony fragrance: Ralph Lauren Romance Pink Pony Edition. The Pink Pony Fund, which was founded in 2000, reduces disparities in cancer care and ensures that treatment is available at an earlier, more curable stage.  50% of the sales of this Flower Flash box will be donated to the Pink Pony Fund of the Ralph Lauren Corporate Foundation, so when you purchase a Flower Flash box for yourself, or a survivor, know that you are contributing to a great cause and to the fight against cancer.  Click the link here to purchase your limited edition Flower Flash box. http://store.lewismillerdesign.com
