Leftover flowers

I have extra flowers from yesterday so I made up five little matching arrangements.  Now what to do with them?  I may have some very lucky neighbors.

Spring-like Flowers in November in Tribeca

I love how these Hawaiian ginger flowers blend in so beautifully with the colors of the store at Vestry Wines.  I think I "paired" them with the rose wines.

 A few bouquets that wound up morphing into something else...

See how different this bouquet is by simply adding a few orange thistles

So we went a bit stark at Estancia this week.  It's hard to capture in a photo however, but these are really detailed flowers and the stems are magnificent.  As Chris at the restaurant says, "They're sassy."

A benefit for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society but most importantly...

a gift for Lindsay who is 28 and who has acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and is in treatment for her seventh recurrence and twelflth tumor since being diagnosed in 2004.  CoCoTribeca donated a floral arrangement for the raffle and gave Lindsay a bouquet to take home as well as floral bracelets for her to wear during the party.  (She's holding them in the photo here as it was the end of the evening.) 

And the invitation:
Dear Members and Friends of John Allan's,

           Please join John Allan's, Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Michael C. Fina, Harry Daniell Designs, and a host of other supporters for a New York City Charity Event, on November 10th 7:30-10pm, to benefit Leukemia Lymphoma society and our close friend Lindsay. 

Alongside Harry Daniell Designs, John Allan’s has teamed up with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to provide one deserving cancer patient with an apartment makeover of her dreams, in a campaign called “Light The Night with Lindsay,” to benefit LLS’ Light The Night® program. Lindsay, a 28-year-old acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) patient, is currently in treatment for her seventh recurrence and twelfth tumor since being diagnosed in July 2004. Her one-bedroom Manhattan apartment will be transformed into a space worthy of a young woman who has remained strong and determined through her six-year battle with cancer. John Allan’s is dedicated to raising $50,000 to advance LLS’ mission and help the estimated 912,938 Americans, like Lindsay, who are battling blood cancers.
