ZEZE BLOOMS


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.

Whenever I get a big bunch of tall flowers, I immediately cut them down, usually placing them in crystal rocks glasses, and spread the all around. I love them short, even though my mother always said they need to be long...go figure! Have a great day!

I love the tulips picture! They're my favorite flower!

Know anyone in need of a new computer to step up their blogging game? Help a girl sell her Macbook Air when things are a little tough! Thanks!

beautiful, and I am sure, extremely lovely fragrance! I'm with you. I love a tight, full, complex bouquet. I know i pay extra for those long, lovely, green stems, but I like to focus on the blossoms!! xo ebh
