Pick Up Those Flowers For Your Date (Or, Hey, A Plant For Your Desk) At Edelweiss Floral Atelier
Edelweiss Floral Atelier is about flowers, not bouquets. (Not the pre-made kind of bouquets, anyway.) Owner and Brooklyn local Eka Dara will work with you to find the right stems for any occasion, be it for a date or for your desk. This is an atelier, after all—a studio of sorts, and one that encourages precisely the kind of creative collaboration between florist and customer that Eka envisioned when she switched careers (she has a Masters in computer science) and boroughs (from Manhattan to Brooklyn) six years ago.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS NEIGHBORHOOD?
I just love Brooklyn. There is a personal touch about the people and businesses here. It’s changed a lot over the last six years — in a good way.
ONE FOOLPROOF FLOWER TO GIFT?
That’s a difficult question.
OK. WHAT ABOUT ARRANGEMENTS? ANY ADVICE FOR THOSE OF US PICKING UP SOMETHING FOR, SAY, VALENTINE’S DAY?
Go for something natural, something garden style. Flowers are so pretty by themselves — you can’t make them prettier.
