Last week I spent a few days in New York City to celebrate my birthday. The weather was perfect and the vibe in the city was upbeat and happy. I love wandering around Manhattan this time of year and as I've mentioned before, I like to discover new things each time I visit. This time I found an adorable little flower shop on the Upper West Side called Posies. The store is tucked along Amsterdam Avenue. It's not a big place but the bright pink awning and plants spilling onto the sidewalk are so inviting you can't help but stop and notice. I had to go in and check it out. It was really cute so I thought I'd share it with you. I didn't have my camera so I used my iPhone to capture some photos and show you what Posies has to offer.
Even though it is currently surrounded by scaffolding, this little flower shop jumps out at you when you are walking down the street.
The store is literally overflowing with fresh flowers and plants.
There are buckets of seasonal flowers inside. You can make your own bouquet or have Posies create something for you.
I was amazed at the selection of flowers offered in such a small space. There were so many varieties and colors to choose from.
If you can't decide or don't have time to make your own bouquet, you can choose one of the premade bouquets that are lining the wall. This was my favorite part of the store. The bouquets were gorgeous and inexpensive.
I love garden roses and hydrangeas together so I chose this beautiful bouquet to take home.
If you need a vase or vessel for your arrangement Posies has those too.
I didn't need a vase so my bouquet was carefully wrapped in purple tissue paper and cellophane, tied with a raffia bow and placed in a large white shopping bag. I love that! So simple but so very pretty. This little flower shop gets a huge thumbs up for me! It was a great little find and a fun stop to make in the middle of a busy day. If you visit the Upper West Side head to Posies!
Enjoy your week!
