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

Favorite Time of Day

It’s a well known fact that dawn is the Flower Bandit’s favorite time of day. This week’s Pink Dawn Flower Flash Box is inspired by sunrises and the pink and purple hues they bring to the summer sky. Much like a new day, flowers and flower arranging can be restorative, healing and bring an overall sense of calm and optimism. Proceeds from this box will be donated to Crossroads Community Services, affiliated with St. Bartholomew’s Church in fighting homelessness and hunger in New York City.

Choices, choices….

This is a tale of two roses. Summer garden roses are sublime but I never can choose my favorite variety. Not one to shy away from color, I often gravitate towards bold cherry hues, deep coral and vibrant mango shades. But as soon as I dive in…I find myself wanting to live with powdery pink and lilac blooms which are so romantic and moody. Good thing living with flowers is a short term relationship and one can bounce from one bloom to the next without any hurt feelings! As always, this is a purchase you can feel great about. 10% of the proceeds of these Flower Flash Boxes will go to The Echo Project. Our rose boxes have a limited run so grab them while you can!

New Class Alert!

Excited to announce that with our August 6th class selling out so quickly, we decided to add one more for those who my not have had the chance to purchase a seat. Summer blooms are so gorgeous and uniquely vibrant and fluffy. Lewis will be using the season’s best flowers for this August 7th class. With a focus on texture, shape, color, movement and composition, each student will have an opportunity to learn from the Flower Bandit, himself. Classes are held on the ground floor of our 1,000 square foot studio, and we will be implementing all social distancing guidelines. We will have face masks on hand but encourage you to bring your own. Classes are $325 per person and a lot of  fun when you bring a friend along!

All The Roses…

Growing up in California farm country, summer always meant rose bushes that grew 7 feet tall. I grow them in my yard upstate but I am reluctant to cut flowers from my own garden. That is why I am so excited to introduce this new Rose Flower Flash Box. I chose two color stories. One is fiery and bold, comprised of multi-petaled stunners in shades of sunset. The other, romantic and soft in pearlescent pinks and ivory. As always, these roses come direct from the farm to your doorstep and a link to a series of short instructional videos, taught by yours truly, is included. There is something so fresh about a heap of summer garden roses in the home this time of year. Gift them to a loved one or send them to yourself.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

July Flower Classes

Happy Fourth, everyone! In many ways, the art of gathering is still being defined (and redefined) this summer.  It is important for us all to be safe and diligent and to find the right balance. I know sharing company and laughter with small groups of friends and making sure all feel at ease as we navigate our way through “pandemic etiquette”, has brought me a lot of joy. It’s with this spirit, that we launched these small flower classes at our studios in New York City. We will be taking over the ground floor of our studio space (nearly 1,000 square feet) and students will be stationed 6 feet apart from one another. Each station will be outfitted with everything a student needs to create a stunning floral arrangement including their own bucket filled with the most beautiful, juicy summer garden flowers and individual  bottles of crisp rosé. I will share with you my techniques and talk you through each and every bloom and why I chose them. We will discuss the importance of shape, texture, movement, color and composition but mostly, we will gather, create and have some fun. Classes are 2.5 hours long and capped at 12 students per class. Price of class is $325 per student. Dates are as follows:

Wednesday, July 8th Lewis Miller Design Flower Class 2PM -4:30PM
Thursday, July 9th Lewis Miller Design Flower Class 2PM -4:30PM

Summer Sparklers

Introducing a Flower Flash Box worthy of the summer solstice. For this week’s offering, I chose textural thistle–reminiscent of sparklers on the Fourth of July, glossy calla lilies and the beloved peony, in luscious shades of black cherry, pinks and indigo.  The art of gathering in summer and at home, feels especially intimate right now. I am looking forward to uncomplicated and gorgeous flowers, good conversation with a small circle of friends and a starry sky overhead. A portion of the proceeds of this box will be donated to the NAACP. Click the link to shop. http://store.lewismillerdesign.com

The Simple Joys of Life

Pink Lemonade, pink sunsets, pink peonies, the simple joys of summer and of life. This new Flower Flash Box is simply meant to lift spirits. Over the last few days, LMD has been trying to find balance and do the next right thing. I am proud to write that since we launched this Flower Flash Box on April 4th, in the midst of Covid, LMD has raised over $50K for charity.

We have donated to the United Way, to the Greater New York Hospital Association and to Your Mom Cares. We are now directing our attention to the Black Lives Matter movement. Words are important, actions are imperative. We will keep doing our part, we will keep Flower Flashing for good and for change! And we will keep offering up the most beautiful blossoms of the season in the hopes they bring joy and life into your homes. Click the link to shop: http://store.lewismillerdesign.com

Dutch Blue

One of our prettiest boxes to date, this week’s blue and white Flower Flash Box is inspired by Delft pottery and the gorgeous Dutch hue. It is also one of our most sweetly fragrant boxes with freesia and peonies included.

Now more than ever, LMD is focused on being a source of inspiration to our customers. The Flower Flash Boxes are meant to be a source of beauty, an activity to connect you with nature, and a way to promote a sense of positive well being.

Flowers are our greatest cheerleaders, put on this earth to make us happy and to remind us that beauty exists and that we are deserving of it. Click the link to shop this week’s special offering. http://store.lewismillerdesign.com

Introducing the Wedding Edition, Flower Flash Box

Two weekends ago, I had the honor of creating a Flower Flash Wedding for New York Times best-selling author and former Editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, Elaine Welteroth and her singer-songwriter husband Jonathan Singletary. In many ways the past three years of creating public floral art installations on the streets of New York, prepared me for their stylish, buoyant and spirited wedding on the front steps of their Brooklyn brownstone apartment. The design process was fast and bountiful, just the way I like it!

The color story and the blooms in this week’s Wedding Flower Flash Box are inspired by Elaine and Jonathan’s blessed day. There are white and coral peonies, sweet peas, delphinium (for something blue) and delicate hellebores. I know this summer will be bittersweet for those who had plans to wed and for their loved ones who were looking forward to witnessing these celebrations. This new wedding box is really a celebration box, intended for family and friends to gift to couples who had to delay and also for couples who have chosen to stay true to their date and finding creative ways to still wed!

With this in mind, in addition to the instructional flower arranging videos, I have added a bonus video on how to make a stunning hand-tied wedding bouquet. Personally, the act of gifting makes me feel hopeful and connected to my community and gifting serves as a gentle reminder that we can still look forward to big plans by sending small gestures of love. http://store.lewismillerdesign.com
