Artful Flowers for Mother's Day

" Les Fleurs c'est la Vie!" literally means " Flowers mean life " in French. This is certainly the philosophy of Olivier Giugni, the legendary French floral artist and owner of the celebrated L'Olivier Floral Atelier in New York City, his adopted home, since 1986.
Olivier Giugni grew up in Brignoles, a small village between Aix en Provence and St.Tropez. The warmth, whimsy, style and bursts of color the artist brought from his native Southern France are unmistakable. And Olivier has been adding sumptuous color and life to his gorgeous floral arrangements.

" Roses come in many different colors, all with different meanings. To wit, pink roses stand for perfect happiness and affection, while white roses represent purity and loyalty. With Mother's Day, can you think of anything nicer to say to the woman who's always been there for you?"
~Olivier Giugni
