Belle De Nuit: Fine Silk Floral Arrangements

These are not your mother's silk flowers (no offense, mom).

I love flowers as much as the next gal - getting them, having them, wearing them in my hair and dancing with one in my teeth. However, they are expensive and you never know how long they are going to last. So...

Why not try silk flowers?

OK, I know you might be unwilling to entertain the idea. The nice ones cost an arm, both legs, and the ability to grow long eyelashes, and the cheap ones are dreadful to be in the same room with. But what if I told you that you could get the nice ones at a great price? You might call me a sensationalist; a truth stretcher - but I swear to you that Belle de Nuit, the newly launched floral design company that specializes in fine silk floral arrangements offers beauty, style and affordability. Just check out the picture of the ones I scored today at the GreenFlea Market on Columbus (between 76th-77th St.)! For $70 I got this adorable arrangement of silk flowers wearing the best colors and sitting in the coolest antique container. To compare, if you wanted something similar, such as Diane James Floral Designs available at Gracious Homes, you would start by paying at least $210, and likely much more than that.

Word is that Laura Zeitlin - the proprietor and designer with decades of industry experience under her belt - will be BACK at the GreenFlea Market this coming Sunday (November 8, 2009) from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. at one of the outside tables. I suggest you check it out.

Can I bring my own container and have something made to order on the spot?

Anonymous: Made-to-order is possible, I'm just not sure what can be done on the spot - you should contact Laura Zeitlin via her web site:
Her contact info is there.

Hi all,

My thanks to Guerilla Shopper NYC for her fantastic review.

I can be reached at for any information.

Of course we can design in your own containers, I love doing custom work!

You can expect a 1-2 week turn around on custom orders. Please feel free to bring your container to the flea market for a consultation.
Remember the Holidays are right around the corner so please make your plans early.
