I have organized and arranged many events in the city and some times, I am in need of a florist to provide table centerpieces. This is especially true when I'm doing sit down dinner functions and I can tell you that I have used a lot of different florists in the New York. Alisan Florists in midtown east is really a cut above the rest. They are extremely creative when it comes to floral centerpieces. I had an event that had a very modern feel to it and they came through with flying colors. They created about 60 customized centerpieces that were all encased in a square geometric vase. The arrangements included some sea grass, some pebbles, and some just gorgeous orchids. They produced a quality product and even better, they arrived on time with all the centerpieces in perfect condition. I would highly recommend this florist for any event related function you are having. I would also certainly recommend them for just ""everyday"" flowers. I was blown away and I'm sure you will be too.
