CFD’s Flowers in December Vogue Shoot

Saturday, January 11th, 2014

With the holidays now over and annual winter buying trips about to come to an end, we finally get a chance to reflect on the past year. What a year it has been. We feel blessed everyday to do what we love with fantastic and talented people as our clients and customers.

Below is a photo from Vogue magazine that is for a belated update on our good friend, Ariel Dearie, who came in to show us her work in the December 2013 Vogue shoot featuring Jessica Chastein. What a romantic spread done with our artificial flowers in the background (and some real flowers too if you can tell which is which!)

Please absolutely check out her blog and website on her fashionable and chic work at You can find more contact info and more photos at

Rita Konig Decorates with CFD's Lifelike Pines

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

Thank you Rita for the mention on your NY Times Blog!

“They [CFD] have the best fir garlands, some already strung with lights, sprigs of mistletoe and other white and red berries.”

Rita Konig, decorator maven and contributor to British Vogue and Domino, creates stunning holiday decor for the Waverly Inn in the West Village. She expertly mixes real and artificial holiday greens, including our pine garlands and mistletoe.  A good tip by Rita is, “In restaurants, everything you use has to be fake — both for fire safety, and since the fir dries out too fast and the needles fall into customers’ soup, which interferes with the cheer.” At CFD, we make sure to carry fire-retardent holiday greenery.

Keep up with lovely Ms. Konig on her weekly blog at
