Thank you for visiting Bird Watching & Pruning Floral. BW&P is owned and operated by Allison Manne. It is a boutique floral design company based in both NYC and the Hudson Valley specializing in weddings, events, editorial and installations.
After college graduation, Allison first honed her floral skills with a number of stylistically diverse companies including Bloom (NYC), Antony Todd Events, Lewis Miller Design and Merveille (Austin, TX) before creating BW&P Floral. Her designs are inspired by nature. Having farmed for several seasons in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens, she puts extreme care and thought into sourcing local, seasonal and sustainably grown blooms whenever possible. In addition to the environmental and socio-political reasons behind this, she finds that smaller local farms often produce the most unique, heirloom varieties of flowers that cannot be grown and imported on a mass-scale. Her designs attempt to showcase the true nature of each bloom by allowing their movement to take shape in her work. The overall effect is organic, wild and romantic.
