Flowers and fine crystal, there is no better pairing, and so, here’s a luxurious collaboration for your radar. Excitingly, London-based luxury flower specialists, FLOWERBX has collaborated with French crystal-makers, Baccarat and great timing, as it’s dropped right in time for Valentine’s Day.
Expect a limited-edition set which pairs 30 premium roses in the colorways of soft pink, ivory, and classic red with a trio of beautiful and intricate crystal vases. And of course, this is complete with a gorgeous signature red Baccarat box. Now it’s easier than ever to create a blooming beautiful trio arrangement, or standalone floral designs within your home.
A loving gesture in the waiting, whether for yourself or someone dear, this partnership perfectly merges the core brand value of both firms. Here, contemporary splendor, style, and unrivalled quality is showcased. This is seconded by the founder of FLOWERBX, Whitney, who has supplied elegant floral arrangements to the likes of Dior, Bottega Veneta, Jimmy Choo, and Tom Ford.
“We are always trying to tell new stories with flowers at FLOWERBX, and when thinking of an “extraordinary gift” for Valentine’s Day, Baccarat was the only partner who came to mind. FLOWERBX and Baccarat share the values of quality, design, taste and luxury, and we share discerning clients who want the very best that life has to offer.” Whitney Bromberg Hawkings, Founder and CEO, FLOWERBX
MORE FOR YOU
This partnership is one of many for FLOWERBX, as they have worked with a curated list of who’s who within the fashion, interiors, and design realms. From Laura Bailey to Emilia Wickstead, and then there was last year’s collaboration with Tiffany & Co. for Valentine’s Day 2020, which involved a stunning pop-up at the Tiffany Flagship Next Door in New York.
“Since authenticity and quality are at the core of what we do, I asked myself who is the authority on hand blown, beautifully made crystal vases, and there I no brand like Baccarat that has the deep-rooted knowledge and history of crystal-making. We approached Baccarat skeptically, as we all know how protective French Brands are of their heritage, but it was an immediate OUI from them, and has been a very successful collaboration for us both.” Whitney Bromberg Hawkings, Founder and CEO, FLOWERBX
Whitney shares her tips for keeping flowers fresh for longer:
Step 1 – unwrap: Your roses will arrive with naturally-occurring guard petals to protect them during transport. Please remove these outer petals as well as any foliage that would be below the waterline to avoid contaminating the water.
Step 2 – trim: Re-cut the stems at a sharp diagonal to encourage maximum water absorption and split the base of the stem vertically about 1cm to allow water to move easily up the stem.
Step 3 – arrange: Place the stems in a clean vase with freshly-drawn, lukewarm water as soon as possible. Change the water regularly and keep the branches in a cool area, away from direct heat, sunlight, and any draughts.
Step 4 – clean: In order to prevent damage to your crystal and keep your vases sparking, always wash the pieces individually and by hand. Use warm water and a non-abrasive cleaning product. Baccarat recommends you use a gentle care dishwasher tablet, which can be used when washing by hand.
