Rose Red and Lavender provided the flowers for our rehearsal dinner and wedding. The flowers were lovely, we got many comments from our guests on how beautiful they were. They created a magical garden wedding. More...

All I can say is WOW! We had a fairly tight budget for flowers and Kimberly was able to pull it off BEAUTIFULLY! She designed beautiful arrangements and a chuppa fully taking into account my preferences. She also developed an absolutely stunning color scheme and choice of differently textured flowers. She was also a commensurate professional throughout the planning and set up process. More...

Kimberly caught our vision when we had our wedding at the picnic house in prospect Park. We wanted an autumn rustic themed wedding. The arch was arranged in an orange hue and was beautiful against the green landscape. The boquets and arrangements made the venue magical. More...

I was so glad we chose Kimberly to provide the flowers for my daughter’s winter wedding at Brooklyn Winery. We were making decisions from a distance so the fact that she had worked in that venue before and was highly thought of by the staff played an important role in the success of the event flowers. First of all, Kimberly was a delight to work with. Professsional, responsive yet empathetic, she took the time on phone calls and via email to ask the right questions to help us work through what the couple wanted . Ambiance and price were the two major factors and she was on target with both. We reviewed her site, some others and pinrest and sent her several pictures prior to our first phone meeting. After talking with us, she sent a mood board that captured the colors and feel my daughter was looking for. My daughter and I did not want to be involved with choosing the actual flowers...rather, what we wanted, and Kimberly provided, was a professional to guide us through using seasonal flowers in a way that contributed to the romantic mood my daughter was going for. We met with her by phone a few days before the ceremony to hear what she was doing and to give input ( we had none!). The bouquets and arrangements perfectly represented what the couple had hoped for and we received numerous compliments on them.

My daughter and her fiancé were very budget conscious and some of the florists I contacted in the initial search would just provide us with a price sheet when they heard what we wanted to come in at. Kimberly talked with us on the pros and cons of various choices based on the venue and her experience and came up with a plan that worked for us. Frankly, she ended up costing about the same as what we were quoted by others...it was her approach in dealing with us that made the difference.

Overall we would highly recommend Kimberly and her staff for your next event!

I really enjoyed meeting with Kim at RR&L. She was very nice & we had a fantastic time at our meeting at her showroom in Industry City. What was presented on our wedding day was very pretty but not what I had expected. This considered, the only thing I would suggest is meeting closer to the date. We met & reviewed printed pinterest photos several months out but walked through them individually - for example, "this type of garland but with some sort of scented pine & red berry to make it more festive" so it was probably my fault for not re-reviewing it with her closer to the date & instead just sharing the pinterest board with her. Again, what was delivered was pretty, just not what I had expected. Additionally, she was very reasonably priced compared to other NYC area florists which was very important in my decision. More...

We used Rose Red & Lavender for our July 2016 wedding at Liberty Warehouse. Kimberly was awesome to work with from the beginning. I gave her a general vibe and some pinterest photos I like, and what she came up with was so much better than I imagined! I even added a couple of flower crowns last minute and she delivered. I got compliments on everything and honestly became emotional when I saw our venue all set up with the flowers. Of course, like anything wedding-related, I was shocked at how expensive wedding flowers are, but compared to other vendors I found RRL to be very reasonably priced. The delivery on the day-of was so efficient and well taken care of that I barely knew anything was happening, which is exactly what you want when you're a busy bride. More...

I highly recommend Rose Red & Lavender! I used them for my wedding at Liberty Warehouse in July 2016 and the flowers were absolutely stunning. Kimberly is not only such a nice, calm, and reliable person to work with but she is also an amazing artist. We described the look we were going for without picking out specific flowers and she executed it perfectly! We couldn't be happier! More...

Difficult to find but worth it when you do. Recently had an small, intimate wedding and wanted pastel free flowing type arrangements/bouquet. Received what I was looking for. A little more height and width would have been nice but overall, I was very happy. Prices are excellent. More...

Red Rose and Lavender was great! They did my bouquet and family flowers for a great price. I wanted to succulents in my bouquet so that I could plant them later and they were the only place around that did want to charge me an arm and a leg to do it.

Kimberly and her staff from Red Rose and Lavender did an amazing job transforming the venue for our wedding. She listened to all of our requests and made the adjustments we asked for throughout the planning process.

Both our ceremony and reception took place at the Metropolitan Building (in Long Island City, NYC), and so we required the space to be "flipped over" from the ceremony setup to the reception tables. We were extremely pleased with how well Kimberly met our needs and coordinated with the catering staff to ensure a smooth transition. Our guests raved to us about how beautiful the flower and candle arrangements were, and about how gorgeous the decorated huppah was for the ceremony. Her flower arrangements, bridal bouquets and boutonnieres were beautifully understated and natural compositions we couldn't be more pleased with. I would definitely recommend Kimberly to anyone looking for beautiful wedding decor.

I had such a great experience working with Kimberly and her team at Rose Red & Lavender.
From the moment that my husband and I met with Kimberly we knew she was the one we wanted to work with. We did our due diligence and met with several other florists but it was clear that none of them would be able to streamline our ideas into a clear cut vision as well as she could. She just made us feel really at ease.
As the wedding approached and we started communicating much more often I felt totally comfortable about making certain decisions after talking it over with her. She has a great eye and it reflects in her work.
I didn't include my mother in the original meeting with Kimberly, and I regretted it afterwards. I told Kimberly that I really wanted to wow my parents because of this (and because my father is an avid cactus collector we needed to include succulents), and sure enough she delivered. My dad was a fan of the little potted cacti and my mother thought everything was absolutely stunning.
The ring bearer pillow was the cutest little moss covered creation I had ever seen. Working with Red Rose & Lavender was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding and I recommend them to anyone.

Rose Red & Lavender was amazing to work with! I had some ideas coming into our first meeting to talk about what we wanted, but I was also unclear on a few other things. Kimberly was able to read my mind - and understood immediately exactly what my vision was, and how to flesh out the ideas I was vague on. When I look at pictures from the ceremony (RR&L did our chuppah), the flowers definitely stand out as one of the most beautiful components! My bouquet was so gorgeous we had it preserved (it is now on a shelf in our living room so we can see it every day). Every detail was perfect. I highly recommend using them as a vendor - worth ever penny! More...

Kimberly really listened to what I was looking for and her execution was much higher than my expectations. She was very easy to work with and incorporated extra details into my bouquet as per my request. I knew once I met with Kimberly that she had the same style as me and would do an amazing job - she did not fall short! More...

Kimberly and her team were great! We had a small wedding and I was having some trouble even getting responses from certain florists after I conveyed our budget. I spoke with out venue coordinator and she immediately recommended Red Rose and Lavender. I met with Kimberly and loved everything about the shop in Brooklyn. She had a great vibe and was very accommodating with our budget. She also knew our venue (Housingworks Bookstore Cafe) very well and could offer specific suggestions on decorations and things like number of votives we needed. I sent her a link to a pinterest page with ideas I had for flowers and she turned it into a mood board that she sent about a month before the wedding. I told her what I liked and didn't and she adjusted accordingly. It was a great process. On the day of, the bouquets and personals were delivered to our apartment where we were getting ready on time. And once we arrived at the venue, everything looked amazing. The team has such a great eye for the venue and did a great job. I'd highly recommend them! More...

Kimberly and her team at Rose Red and Lavender did an incredible job for my Halloween wedding. They transformed my parent's NJ golf club and driving range into a fall oasis of funky and beautiful flowers - which is just what i wanted. Kimberly understood my vision perfectly and was flexible with some last minute requests. She even went out to the space in her own time beforehand to see it, which was unnecessary and very generous of her. I didn't want to use a generic florist and these designs were so unique. I had several people at the wedding comment that they were the most beautiful wedding flowers they'd seen and they asked if I would share her contact information. Thank you Kimberly! More...

While I wasn't initially excited about wedding flowers, they ended up being one of the favorite aspects of my wedding. Kimberly and her team managed to create a magical vibe at BBG's Palm House by making my dream of flowers floating through the air come true. It was incredible and one of the things people continue to remark on. She worked within my budget to do so and gave great advice along the way. We did have some disconnect between our initial meeting and what appeared on the vision board much closer to the wedding. If I had the ability to have the vision board in hand after the initial meeting (rather than weeks before the wedding), it would have made the process less stressful. I would encourage anyone else working with RRL to request that. All in though, they go above and beyond and do amazing work! More...

I recently had my wedding ceremony and reception, and I picked this florist for my wedding among other florists. I found this florist when I saw flower decoration for wedding at Brooklyn Winery and liked it. They use wild flowers and succulent plants in arrangement and bouquet, so i thought it was unique. Yet, still fancy and elegant.

I made an appointment with Kimberly and visited the shop for the first time. The shop is little, but cozy. Their decoration is interesting. There are a outside space behind the shop area and there are more plants. It is like a secret space. If you keep going, you will find their office. They were under renovation when I visited early July.

Kimberly's office is a relaxing space. I think it was relaxing because of Kimberly's personality, too. She has warm atmosphere. She sent I and my fiance estimate immediately. She responded for our request when we asked her to adjust the pricing. We really appreciate it.
After paying deposit, Kimberly e-mailed me a mood board which showed the idea of arrangement and coloring. That was helpful to know how flowers will be prepared on my wedding in advance.

On the wedding day, the bouquet was made elegantly. I picked birch tree arch decoration for the ceremony and we stood in front of the birch tree. The tree was decorated with beautiful white flowers and that was elegant and romantic. Table flower arrangements were in fancy wood box and glass vases. We gave out the arrangement including wood boxes and vases to guests as they leave. They loved to take them home as a souvenir. I am sure their family at home enjoyed the arrangements, too.

The staff is always amazingly friendly and are of great help! I always joke that I have a "black thumb" and can't keep any plants alive, but they worked with me to find easy maintenance plants within my budget and knowledge. The one missing star is because I fell in love with these Gardena plants last year and they didn't tell me that gardena's are a very difficult plant to care for--there are online forums about "suicidal gardenas". It is definitely not their fault that I picked out a plant that I knew nothing about, but a heads up would have been nice, so I knew what I was in for. Aside from that one incident, I really love this place and the ladies who work there. The backyard is beautiful and their cut flowers are to die for, and last a very long time. Try to send lots of people there! More...

Gorgeous bouquet! My aunt got me one for my birthday, but I was leaving town, and asked if they could wait two months. They were totally fine with it and kindly and patiently called me in February to work out when and what day they could deliver. Based on her voice, it seems like they delivered it themselves! What great service. Will be using them myself in the future. More...

The floral arrangements were incredibly beautiful and hit the aesthetic I was going for right on the nose. When I walked into the main party space I literally gasped. The team even added small unexpected touches that transformed the room into something that felt like it was made special just for our day. The price was extremely reasonable compared to other places I researched and the final product was far beyond the cookie-cutter flowers you see at many weddings. I had a few issues in the beginning getting timely responses, but honestly it didn't even matter to me because I loved the flowers so very much. They truly were one of my favorite elements of the day (and I didn't think I would be into flowers at all!). I would recommend in a heartbeat. More...

Kimberly stood out from all the other florists I interviewed, both in terms of value (highly cost-effective) as well as she completely listened and understood my vision for the event.
She was also very flexible and accommodating on my specific and unique requests as it was a Chinese-Jewish theme. I am so grateful to her and her highly knowledgable team for doing my rehearsal dinner and wedding ceremony/reception. They were very willing to work within my budget. I got so many compliments on my chuppah, my flowers, my decorations, and would recommend them to everyone without reservation. She is super talented and professional and has extraordinary vision on how to create a beautiful event.

This adorable little flower shop was a life saver! I walked in two days before I was about to elope, looking for a simple floral headband to match something similar to what my mom wore on her wedding day 30 years ago. I showed them a rough picture of what I was looking for and without question they were confident they could do it. I'd gone to another florist in Williamsburg and they pretentiously told me my order was too specific so they'd charge me $250! So you could imagine my excitement and shock when the lovely woman confidently assured me it was an easy project that would cost $45!!! They called me the day of to remind me to pick up the headband and I was floored by how perfect it was! I couldn't be happier with it! Don't let the fact that this shop is slightly off the beaten path, it's worth your time and the money you'll save!! More...

Kimberly really was a joy and easy to work with. As a bride without a "color scheme" I asked her to come to the venue and go from there. With very little guidance from me she created a beautiful, rustic, and lush flower concept that enhanced the space and gave the whole day a touch of elegance. Trust her and she will execute a brilliant vision, even if you're unsure of exactly what you want. More...

Honestly, I was all set to dislike this place. I was on their mailing list and got an email a couple years ago about Valentines day like "Don't buy flowers that were designed in KANSAS" which just really rubbed me the wrong way, as someone who has spent a lot of time in not-NYC. However, Sunday morning I was at Crest hardware looking to start my seeds and they just didn't have what I was looking for, so I decided to pop my head in. Everyone in there was super friendly, and I felt like I got really personalized attention from the girl who helped me (Annie? She had long brown hair in a loose french braid), and ended up leaving with a cute little seedling greenhouse that fit my space perfectly. They don't have the biggest selection for gardeners, but their stuff is definitely really cute. The space is small and a little cramped feeling, but the staff knows what they have and can help you get in and out. More...

Kim at RR&L is truly a master of her craft. When I first sat down and met Kim for the first time, we talked a lot about what I wanted in our decor and flowers, and what kind of vibe I wanted our wedding to have. I showed her my Pinterest boards and she showed me the shop's boards and examples; looking back now, I didn't give her all that much to go on . . .

And when my wedding day arrived, her creative genius and knowledge of her craft really shined through in every single aspect of what she produced for our wedding. Kim has a very unique process that may not be for everyone. If you really want to control the flowers/decor, and see preview set-ups and all of that nonsense, then Rose Red and Lavender may not be the best choice for you. But if you want insanely beautiful flowers, a warm and inviting environment at your wedding, and a person (and team) who are passionate and excited about what they do, then Kim and this shop are for you!

Kim and her team created the most beautiful atmosphere for our wedding. First off, our bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres were perfect, and my bouquet was absolutely stunning (made from hydrangea, ranuculus, trick, succulents, garden roses, and anemones, for our fall wedding)! She also created a beautiful variety of small and large center pieces, vignettes of bittersweet vines and lemon leaves with candles in all our venue's enormous windows, and an amazing alter-scape for our actual wedding ceremony. The colors, textures, and style of flowers was exactly what I wanted and described to Kim, and everyone kept commenting on what a beautiful and warm space our wedding was in -- Not to mention, what a sweet and warm person Kim is herself! Highly recommend this florist if you're getting married in the NYC area!

Kimberly at Rose Red and Lavender was a joy to work with. I looked at many other Brooklyn florists before making my decision, but decided to go with RRL as Kimberly was very responsive, gave me loads of helpful advice (I didn't really know much about weddings or flowers) and just a really lovely person. She'd also worked with my reception venue (Frankies) before so I felt comfortable leaving all the decisions in her hands. When I saw the flowers on my wedding day, i was over the moon. They were even more beautiful than I had anticipated, and she'd done a wonderful job in using all my favourite colours to create something whimsical, beautiful and different. She'd also created me a beautiful hairpiece out of rose and jasmine which smelled divine. More...

My husband and I were married in Brooklyn in April at Stone Park, a restaurant with a small event space around the corner. Kimberly's flowers for our big day were simply STUNNING. It was exactly what we wanted. We could not have been more thrilled. We had been across the street doing family photos, and I walked into Stone Park for the first time, slightly frozen (my dress was sleeveless and it was about 50 degrees), and saw those flowers and immediately thought, "I do not have to think about another thing." I knew right then that the event was going to be beautiful. Many people commented on how gorgeous the flowers were. They had a wild, romantic feel to them but did not look like they'd just been "thrown together." After our celebration, I was asked by one of the proprietors who did our flowers because she wanted to recommend the place to future brides and grooms.

When I met with Kimberly several months before my wedding, she really listened. She seemed to get what kind of wedding we wanted right away and had great, creative ideas. My bouquet and the matron of honor's nosegay were so lovely and bright. I was concerned about having the "helmut bouquet" or the "bowling ball" bouquet. I loved how unstructured these were. And my groom, who was very wary of wearing a boutonniere, loved his and it looked SO GOOD against his gray suit!

Great care was put into the flowers. It added to the beauty of our day. I would recommend Rose, Red, & Lavender to any New York bride and groom.

When I met Kimberly, we clicked instantly as to what kind of feel I wanted as far as flowers went. She definitely knew what she was talking about and doing to capture that vision of what I had thought for my wedding. At the venue on the day of the ceremony, she stayed to help everyone put on their flowers and made sure everything was perfect before she left. I enjoyed working with her! More...

I live in Los Angeles and needed to send flowers to someone in Williamsburg, far far away.  It was Saturday and I needed the flowers for Sunday.  The people at Rose Red did a great job (I was sent a photo) and delivered it.  The recipiant, an artist, was truly thrilled. More...

Kimberly and her team were excellent to deal with and came in almost 2 hours before our even to setup.

The flowers were also gorgeous and looked great.

However 2 minor things that came up. On her final bill she added an extra $500 for setup and delivery which were not on the original bill/ quote she sent us. Another thing was apparently they had told our venue that they were taking back the centerpiece vases which was not true.

I only found out about this later on the night and as a result since our guests didnt take the vases home, I ended up stuck with 10 of them.

Overall though I would recommend them because the flowers are beautiful and they give you a good deal.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Kimberly, the owner of Rose Red & Lavender was in helping us to create our flowers. I researched florists, looking for someone who could create an organic, rustic display for our fall wedding. As soon as we met with Kimberly and described our wedding colors and the theme that seemed to have developed for us, she had a vision of colors and flowers for our arrangements. We thank her for making the most beautiful floral arrangements.
Anytime we walked into Rose Red & Lavender, Kim and her staff answered questions we had not only about the wedding but about our own house plants and gardening. We recommend this florist to anyone looking for organic and beautiful arrangements.

Very small but pretty great gardening store. These folks are totally sensitive to the neighborhood, offering wide varieties of fruit, vegetable, and herb plants, plus natural bug control like living ladybugs. The store is full to the rafters with quirky garden- and plant-related stuff, and the staff is always helpful. No pretense: just gardening supplies and help. More...

My fiance and I wanted to go with a local florist for our recent wedding and this flower shop just happens to be a few minutes from our apartment. I am so happy we used this florist! Kimberly and her staff are absolutely wonderful.  I gave Kimberly a general idea of what I wanted for the wedding flowers and she went way above and beyond what I expected! The bouquets, floral arrangements, etc. that were created for us were so beautiful and unique! Many of our guests told us how  much they loved the flowers. Kimberly and her staff are extremely professional and attentive. AND we found it to be more reasonable and affordable than other florists we contacted. I would definitely refer my friends and family to this shop too! The store itself is pretty cool; besides the flowers/plants for sale, there are interesting pieces all throughout the store. The next time I need a bouquet/ plant/ etc., I will be visiting this shop! More...

I recently had our floral arrangements ordered here for our wedding. After showing Kimberly some inspiration tears, she completely got the look I was going for- not too traditional, no pastels, and really bright- but not obnoxious. She was easy to work with, and really tried to work as close to our budget as possible. Closer in to the date of our reception I followed up w her to make sure they would be delivered within the window I needed and she completely reassured me and calmed my nerves! We showed up to our reception to find the most beautiful arrangements, with my original inspiration for color and style represented. I've heard horror stories about working with florists- I feel like I totally lucked out with Red Rose as it was completely stress free and they were very accommodating. More...

This place is great, but very expensive. I received helpful advice from a very friendly gentleman working in the back, who also helped me get everything into my cart and make my purchase. However, when I remembered that I needed a small shovel for potting some plants (what I think 90% of their customers are there for), the only option was $35! I had to go to Crest Hardware to get one for the standard price of $5.99. Crest has a lot of the exact same gardening supplies, including plants, for much cheaper than RRL, so I recommend Crest for essentials. However, the boutique nature of RRL is going to make me go back there for sure. RRL is the Khim's to Crest's C-Town: boutiquey and expensive, but lovely. RRL has also been helpful as I've ordered floral delivery twice and it seems they keep the price down and definitely deliver on time. The ordering process over the phone was also very easy. More...

My wife and I were planning our wedding ourselves. Everything was going smoothly (except for the "discussions" over the guest list). Then flowers! We panicked for a second. Thankfully, we checked out Rose Red & Lavender after seeing their work in the "New York" magazine wedding issue. Personally, I know zero about flowers, so their expertise made the whole process incredibly pain-free (and within our budget)! They are complete pros: one less major thing we didn't have to worry about. Naturally, there are tons of options, but we never felt overwhelmed. A special call out to Enrique and Kimberly (the owners): specialized attention without any stress. We were in excellent hands. (The opposite experience we had with getting a photographer!) Even given our short turn around time, they more than delivered. As for your guest list, you're on your own! Ha. More...

I needed a beautiful bouquet of flowers in a pinch so I quickly Yelped flowers in Brooklyn. Rose Red & Lavender was the first choice with 5 solid stars! I drove, parked, and walked in the day AFTER Thanksgiving. Of course, nothing is left, but somehow, a bouquet was made.It was beautiful and lasted so much longer than a bodega bunch of flowers. Rose Red is kinda pricey, but that is what you have to do for a quality bouquet.I actually went back again before New Years to buy another bouquet with a cheaper $30 price tag. A week after buying, the flowers are actually at the full bloom and looking great.I have finally found my flower shop in Williamsburg. It is the best. More...

Some mystery funk growing on the soil of several of my house plants was picking them off and killing them. I asked in the online garden forums and at several florists in town, but none of their explanations or treatments made sense. I brought a sample of the mystery funk to Rose Red, and the owner figured out what it was and how to treat it. She's super knowledgeable and friendly. My plants and I owe her big time. More...

Rose Red & Lavender provided incredibly beautiful arrangements for a private event I was hosting for such a reasonable cost. Kimberly was a delight to work with. Even though it was my first time ordering flowers and I didn't really know what to ask for, she managed to understand the aesthetic I was going for and the flowers were delivered directly to the venue with no hassle at all! I researched a couple different vendors before picking this business and I'm so glad I did. I will definitely be back for more! More...

They have home-grown dried lavender here! I was looking online for a place to get it to make some baked goods and was not into the idea of trekking into the city.  I was so happy to find a place around my neighborhood that had it.  The owner was there, she's so nice!  She told me that she grows it in Upstate New York and it is perfectly fine to cook with, no pesticides, etc.  My boyfriend and I made cookies and they were delicious.  Its a pretty reasonable price for a bunch, and you definitely get a lot for what you pay for.  She also has a great plant selection and some unique gifts for sale there as well.

Wonderful!  I had a Groupon for this store so I thought it was time I stopped in and got myself something nice and useful.An employee (I'm sorry I did not get his name) helped me select herbs (two kinds of basil, chives, and Italian parsley) and create an indoor windowbox.  He then planted them for me, and when I left, I had a ready-to-use in the kitchen herb garden.  (There's a photo of it here too!)Red Rose and Lavender has a wide selection of pots and plants (many kinds of herbs, chilis, and vegetables).  The box I got was just what I wanted and I could not have asked for a more helpful person to put it all together and tell me how to maintain it.Highly recommended, and I will definitely be back.

Kimberly and I spoke on the phone and by email about my wedding flowers, and I enjoyed our creative/collaborative idea sessions. When I picked up the flowers the night before the wedding, they weren't exactly what I was expecting, and it seemed that some of our ideas had gotten lost in translation. But Kimberly went out of her way to completely re-do the bouquets (working until almost midnight) until I was 100% satisfied. I really appreciated her special effort and the flowers were beautiful and very special. More...

Kimberly, thanks for being such a lovely part of my special day! More...

I asked the owner Kim to create an impressive arrangement for my partner for $150.00. What was delivered was a haphazard looking short cut group of flowers/weed looking stuff. It was visually unappealing and not worth the money. He was upset and I was very disappointed. After explaining my expectations were clearly misaligned with her artistic style, Kim cheerfully offered to replace the arrangement the following day. The replacement bouquet was AWESOME. Kim heard me and valued my business. She responded appropriately and with speed to ensure I was happy. My disappointment was not entirely her fault as there style is more garden like than modern or traditional. I really value the way she corrected the situation and recommend this place highly. Thanks Kim! More...

What a great class, what a great store! My boyfriend bought me and his two daughters a terrarium class with Kimberly. She had hot cocoa ready for us when we arrived and she patiently explained the process of making terrariums by creating one out of an apple juice jar. So cute! We then went on to make four different terrariums...they looked amazing. We recommend this to both adults and children...it's really fun and unique. As a side note, my man also sent me flowers from Rose Red and Lavender. I've never seen such magnificent roses arranged with fragrant rosemary and contained in a vase bound in burlap. Lovely!

I can't say enough good things about Rose Red & Lavender. I found out about the shop when I went to a friend's wedding. First off, the wedding flowers were beautiful. They made the most amazing terrarium centerpieces. I have never seen guests argue over who gets to take home the centerpieces before. I made a beeline to the shop where I discovered not only a full line of terrarium supplies but also some really cool houseplants and gardening supplies. I even heard that they teach classes, I can't wait to take one. A must see for everyone who likes plants and gardening in New York city More...

They were both very easy to work with and communicative and I thought the prices were quite fair. I had a lot of custom requests and they worked with me wiithout batting an eyelash. I really didn't worry at all about the flowers and was very pleased when I arrived and saw everything set up! I would highly recommend if you have a vision or if you don't and want someone to come up with something creative and different. More...

Kimberly at Rose Red and Lavender did a wonderful job for our July wedding. We told her we wanted rustic and earthy and that's exactly what she gave us! We decided on centerpieces made of willow branches and dried flowers using burlap bags as the base. She also tied some green ivy to the branches for some added color. The bar arrangements were colorful and whimsical and were held in pretty mason jars that Kimberly brought in from the store. For the bouquet, hairpieces, and boutonnieres, she used things like seasonal flowers, green chili peppers, and rosemary. On the day of the wedding, she even showed up three hours early to set up! Our guests complimented us so much on the overall decor, and Kimberly's touch really made it complete. Thank you, Kimberly! More...

What a haven for gardeners right here in Brooklyn.  The owner is super awesome and helpful and offers classes on everything from growing herbs to creating a terrarium.  This has to be one of the most beautiful gardening stores I have ever seen- it is a great place for gifts and for all your plant needs alike.  It can be sort of pricey but everything is quality there so it's definitely not unreasonable considering.  I actually sneak by this place and try not to go in because every time I am tempted I find more beautiful plants or gardening supplies to take home.  Great selection of plants and seeds. Organic soil and supplies as well.  Terrariums and gorgeous items abound- it is a wonderland. More...

I had such a great experience here! To give a little background: I had purchased a rather expensive terrarium from a different store, and all the plants inside ended up dying within 2 weeks. I was crushed. So I carrying the terrarium over to Rose Red & Lavender to see if they could help me. The staff was so friendly and sympathetic, as well as super knowledgeable about plants in general and terrariums specifically. They explained why the first plants had died (moss and succulents together, a big no no!) and showed me various combos of plants that could actually live well together. After I picked the plants I liked, they custom built me a new terrarium that is way more beautiful than the original one. I felt like we were really in this little adventure together; they even offered me a ginger beer to drink while we talked about the plants!I also appreciated that they didn't try to upsell me on items. They even discouraged me from buying extra plants because they liked the simplicity of the arrangement. These guys really seem to care about their plants and pairing them with the right customers. I feel so much better! More...

This is THE gardening store that I have been looking for all of my life.  Most stores carry the same standard plants with very few herbs and vegetables.  When I walked past one day I noticed tomato plants on display out front and that caught my interest.  As I ventured inside I was greeted by very friendly and helpful staff.  So, I started browsing their wares and that's about the time that I realized that they had everything I ever wanted.  They even had some rare herbs that you NEVER see for sale.  I was thoroughly impressed by everything they had.  I will definitely be going back often.

I went to Rose Red & Lavender to take their "English gardening" flower arranging class, which was reasonably priced.  It was SO  much fun!!!  To start the class, Kimberly gave us bottles of water, tea and .....a personal peanut butter cake from Nine Cakes (my favorite bakery)!!!  Just for this, I would have given 5 stars.  After that, they gave us our tools that we were able to keep after the class.  We had a teacher who was trained in ikebana but she mainly focused on telling us the basics of flower arranging, what tools we need, etc.  Then after demonstrating how to use the tools and explaining what flowers are used in English gardening, they gave us free reign of the shop!  We were able to use any flowers in the shop they had that day.  Most of the flowers were around the English garden theme.  They were all so lovely and fresh.  While we were arranging, they were all so helpful, giving tips and answering any questions we had.  The store itself was so cute.  Old vintage maps were all over the wall on one side and then there were flowers everywhere!  They also have potting/gardening materials.  I read that they do full fledged floral arrangements for weddings/events.

I am absolutely IN LOVE with Rose Red & Lavender. The only other flower/plant shop in Williamsburg that I know of is Sprout, and while that place is adorable and great, I always wished for something similar that was closer to my apartment. Then I happened to stumble upon Rose Red one day online and decided to check it out. Now I've been there like 4-5 times in the past month!The shop is adorable. It's pretty small, but they have an outdoor section as well that they open on nice days and weekends. Their specialty is orchids and they have some really pretty ones, but they also have a variety of herbs, fresh cut flowers, potted plants, gardening tools, etc.Unfortunately I have to take a star off for their prices. They are a little more expensive than Sprout, and Sprout has a much bigger selection which makes one-stop gardening shopping there seem like a better option. However, Rose Red has them beat on flower arrangements! More...

i went into rose red & lavender last weekend because i needed some pots to re-pot my plants. i left with more stuff than i planned on because:1.) kimberly was so nice and helpful and she made me feel confident in germinating seeds (which never worked for me in the past). also, she assured me that i could grow tomato plants and edible flowers indoors.2.) the pots were pretty and cute. i even bought a pot that tricks plants into growing upside down but then back right-side up again. (maybe you should just go there to understand it better. this pot doesn't work with vines though.) the other pot i bought is cool because it grows moss on it, which keeps the plants nice and moist. (i hate the word 'moist' but it is the best descriptive choice in this case.)3.) kimberly is so knowledgeable that i know there is some kind of insurance with anything i bought here--if i was having trouble or was confused, kimberly would be happy to set me straight.the other super cool thing about this store is that it offers classes in subjects such as composting, seed germinating, and making  a planter out of an old tire. these are just a couple of the classes and some of the classes are FREE but the others cost something.with kimberly's help, my fire escape edible garden will become a reality. i like supporting my local businesses, and i like that there is a friendly shopkeeper who is happy to teach me and answer all of my questions about plants so i can take my growing stuff to the next level. if yr afraid, she'll re-pot plants for you, such as my aggressive cacti.i wish there was more of a selection of cheaper pots, but then again, i guess you could go to a hardware store for that type of stuff, so they still get five stars from me.

Finally, an alternative to half-dead bodega flowers on W'burg's east (or is it south?) side! Gorgeous blooms and unique gifts at reasonable prices sold by friendly owners. The shop can be easily missed because of the construction site next door.The only reason why RR&L doesn't get five stars from me is because when I was there, so was a bird in a cage, which is an instant turn-off for me.

Making people happy and connecting them with their environment and the natural world.

I started my business after traveling the world creating environments for Museums and Retail Installations. I saw how people were connected with nature in urban environments from ancient times to today.
I founded Rose Red & Lavender to produce floral design and decor that would tell people's stories and create a holistic approach to event design as well as to educate and empower people to embrace the natural world and have it be a part of their daily lives.

We are nice and truly care about the happiness of others. We love dogs, and hearing peoples stories. We also create kick ass designs that are Pinterest worthy but not Pinterest driven.
