Flowers for the People: #LMDWasHere
Lewis Miller Design, a NYC based florist, has been creating temporary ”Flower Flashes” all over NYC for the past two years. They use donated or left over flowers from their projects to bring beauty to unexpected places by using garbage cans as large vases, livening up subway entrances with 6 foot tall wreaths of flowers, or juxtaposing bright sunflowers within a gritty construction zone— prompting jaded New Yorkers to take notice and delight in the oddity of seeing beautiful, rare, ethereal blooms in places one would not expect to be beautiful.
Here are some of my favorites:
The stunning installations use recycled flowers whenever possible. Each installation is signed with chalk paint so it washes away in the rain. Flower Flashes are put together before dawn and usually take the team about 15 minutes to create. Flowers for the People are certain to bring a smile to your face and create magical lasting memories for those lucky enough to wander by.
