Flower Arranging Workshop with Flower Girl NYC at Meadowburn Farm
As part of Meadowburn Farm's 2017 Dahlia Festival, we are offering this very special event - an afternoon of flower arranging with the talented Denise Porcaro Tupper of Flower Girl NYC. Denise will demonstrate how to design one of her classic Flower Girl centerpiece arrangements using autumn blooms grown at Meadowburn Farm including our heirloom dahlias, sunflowers, zinnias, amaranth, fall foliage, berries and more.

Denise will share her techniques on how to choose, condition, and arrange flowers. Workshop attendees will go home with their own beautiful creation. The flower arranging workshop fee includes all flowers and supplies, including a special vessel and clippers for you to keep. The workshop will conclude with a guided tour of Meadowburn Farm's historic gardens with their garden manager.


Since 2004 Flower Girl has been bringing lush and whimsical arrangements with a distinct edge to new york city. Native New Yorker Denise Porcaro founded Flower Girl over ten years ago, having come from a background in production design for film. After discovering a creative outlet in flowers, she began crafting striking arrangements and bouquets for a select group of clients and friends. Over time demand for Denise's unique style grew through word-of-mouth praise, and Flower Girl was born. Since then, Flower Girl has worked with a host of fashionable clientele including Vogue, Chanel, Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs; as well as numerous collaborations with companies such as Liberty of London, Gap, Coach and Space 98. Today you can find Flower Girl's retail location on Eldridge Street in the Lower East Side. Flower Girl also has an abbreviated version of the shop within Marché Maman located in Soho. Flower Girl arrangements always focus on what is available seasonally  flowers that evoke the vibrancy and changing seasons of New York City.


Meadowburn was once the country place of Helena Rutherfurd Ely (1858-1920), a pioneering figure in American horticulture at the turn of the 20th century and founding member of the Garden Club of America.  Ely built her gardens surrounding the main residence at Meadowburn over the course of a forty-year period with the help of her loyal gardener, Albert Furman. Through trial and error she developed the practical hands-on horticultural knowledge that informed and inspired  her three widely influential books on hardy gardening. In her day, Helena Rutherfurd Ely was considered one of the premier garden experts in America and her gardens at Meadowburn were recognized as among the finest in the country.

The gardens today provide a unique opportunity for the public to learn from Helena Rutherfurd Elys design and practices as an important living artifact in Americas gardening narrative.
