Best Flower Arrangements, August 2011
With so many florists copying so many looks, from modernist to tropical to baroque, it’s hard not to be a little jaded about floral art. Botany, celebrating its second year at the Brentwood Country Mart, grabbed our attention with its rustic urban-luxe arrangements of uncommon flowers in novel color schemes. The few ready-made bouquets in the store get snapped up. That’s OK—we phoned in an order to the helpful staff, and soon a cluster of anemones, lilacs, dahlias, and roses arrived in a container as distinctive as the blooms.
