One of our newest weekly accounts is Metrograph, a newly opened movie theater at 7 Ludlow Street, showing a curated batch of films for cinephiles and casual moviegoers alike. The interior calls back to the movie theaters of the 1920's that have all but ceased to exist in NYC. Metrograph gives movie lovers a place to really celebrate the magic of cinema.
FFF has had the honor of doing the arrangements at Metrograph for a few months now, and it is quickly becoming one of our favorites. The 2 arrangements flanking the box office allow us to really get graphic, symmetrical and balanced in a unique way. The stark black and white interior really lends to some fun contrast with the colorful arrangements we do each week.
We're seeking an intern or interns...
No previous experience in Floral design needed. You really just have to be curious about the industry, like plants and flowers ( a lot) , have a strong work ethic, and not be a whiner. While we do a lot of events and the bulk of the business is in floral design, we're expanding into different areas and interests. The work flow varies with every week and requires a personality that is easy going, flexible, and up for anything. Some days it will be fun and we'll take you on nursery adventures or send you on a photo shoot. Some days will be hard and you'll be schlepping flowers around the city helping us with our weekly accounts or installing for an event that has a shitty load in situation. And some days will be boring and we'll probably have you washing buckets. It's all part of the game tho and you have to be up for all it. We're a pretty tight knit team, both full timers and part timers, with every one doing what they can to help each other do the best job we can.
Our previous interns have come on to be full time employees, part time assistants, and/or go to freelancers.
Commitment of 2 days per week for 12 week period or 4 days a week for 6 week period. The length and terms of the internship are flexible however and really depends on the initiative you take and the amount of responsibility we feel like we can give you. If we feel like you are an asset to the team and we like having you around, then hey, we'll hire you!
Its that simple.
Please send all inquiries to Studio@foxfodderfarm.com
Also please don't send a cover letter that has been copy and pasted and sent around to 10 different florists in the area. We're all friends and we talk. If you want to work with FFF, then great. We'd be excited to have you. If we're just a name on a list of names, because we fit what you think you're looking for then I must say, you're not what we're looking for.
HEY. It's SPRING. Fox Fodder took a long lunch break last week to catch the blooms at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. It was raining, kind of cold, and Aubrey was wearing sandals which was stupid. She insisted she wasn't cold, but every time the sun came out you could hear her whisper " Yesssssss come to me sun. Come to me." However, it was pretty perfect because no one was there and it was almost as if we had the gardens to ourselves. Everything you would want to be in bloom was in full swing. The azalea's were on acid. The cherries were just starting to shed. Daffodil hill was still popping. And the Lilacs.... we went for the lilacs more than anything. Just to stuff our faces in the blooms and basically get drunk in the only way that geeked out florists do over their heady aroma.
BON APETIT x RALPH LAUREN
Last week I had the pleasure of not only being asked to do the flowers but to attend (as in I actually got to stay and not rush off with creates slung under my arm) a beautiful lunch hosted by Bon Apetit and the awesome duo from Local Creative.
The intention of the event was to explore the various ways of story telling and how today so much of that is through the images we're able to immediately share with the world. Drawing from various iconic color palates from Ralph Lauren's Paint collection, the event was curated with different stations of food, beverage and flowers complementing the various colors. Each of the guests were encouraged to use the various elements to create images and thus tell their own little story.
The colors selected were so much fun to interpret into flowers. I loved creating an ombre effect for the main table, moving from deep blue to pale yellow and all the colors in between.
The food was of course amazing. The company top notch. AND I was given a tour of the BA test Kitchen!!! Best day ever.
