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...

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...

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 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...

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.

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!

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...
