There are people that like their roses leggy and long stemmed, cultured, elegant and proper. I'm not one of those people. Give me color, in hot pink and deep orange, give me exotic lush flowers in full bloom, give me a bouquet from Zeze please! An Upper East side favorite for over 30 years, Zeze's atelier on East 52nd street is reminiscent of a trip to the South of France. I love to pop in when it's cold outside-the gorgeous blooms provide an instant pick me up and its fun to browse among the garden statues, jardinieres and beautiful oil paintings that line the walls. My first bouquet from Zeze's was a stunning hot pink number from my husband nearly twenty years ago and I still get a thrill when he sends me a little bouquet from Zeze's "just because"-(ok, usually because I remind him!) No matter-I'll take a lovely little bouquet any day.
