Off To The Races

Radnor Hunt Race fans and fashionistas turned out in derby finery this past Saturday and I was honored to judge it all as one of the hat contest judges checking out the sea of festive millenery.

Proceeds for the Radnor Hunt Races benefit the open space and clean water programs of the Brandywine Conservancy. The Conservancy has protected over 62,000 acres to date. I was honored to be part of a long-standing tradition in our area and to support the Conservancy. Community events like these are what makes our area so special.

In conjunction with local milliner, Ella Grace of Ella Grace Hats, Nicol Floral Design offers hat rentals with a wide collection of hats from around the globe.

A special shout out to my fellow hat judges: Caroline Mangan O’Halloran from Savvy Main Line, Janet Sidewater, Milliner and owner of Feather In Your Cap, former meteorologist John Bolaris, Caryn Kunkle of ArtJawn, and Miss Pennsylvania Carolina West.





Nicol Floral Design Featured on Action News

On April 8th I was honored to be featured on the ABC 6 Action News program, FYI Philly. Co-host Karen Rogers and crew met me at my studio to interview me and capture the essence of my work. They saw first hand what a statement my silk walls can make, and they witnessed the beauty of silk flowers in my studio packed with color. Then I had the opportunity to go to the ABC 6 studio to see broadcast live. My blue silk floral wall was used as the backdrop in the shoot. What a thrill! Here is a link to the program... 

Flower Wall at Rodin Museum - Nicol Floral Deisgn Among Masterpieces

The warm weather lately reminded me that I never shared my experience working with amazing photographers, florists and event planners at the Rodin Museum last spring. The dramatic architecture and the stunning masterpieces made for a perfect venue for one of my flower walls at the wedding of Lyndsay Hoy and Vincent Nguyen. Their wedding was featured in this season's Philadelphia Wedding Magazine. Here are a few pictures from the event. Shout out to some of the vendors: Marie Labbanz, Photographer; Gina Sole, Wedding Planner; Evantine Design, Flowers; Starr Events, Caterer; Cinemacake, Videographer; Two Paper Dolls, Invitation. 

Featured in Philadelphia Wedding Magazine, Spring/Summer 2017

I never would have imagined a year and a half ago when I started my business that my work would be displayed on the cover of Philadelphia Wedding Magazine! For one day my floral studio turned into a professional photo studio complete with models, makeup artists, photographers and stylists. My hand crafted silk floral walls were used as backdrops for the most beautiful brides! All my color palettes were featured on 12 pages of the magazine.
