Fleur Elise Bkln

is a Floral Design company started by Elise Bernhardt.  As Executive Director of cultural non-profits for several decades, Bernhardt has combined her passion for flowers with her expertise in facilitating connections between people.

Fleur Elise workshops bring people together through flowers!

Bernhardt has studied floral arrangement at the Flower School, with Fleurs Bella, at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and at the Sogetsu Ikebana school in Tokyo. With a background in dance, especially site-specific performance, Fleur Elise’ arrangements are all about movement. She has created arrangements for numerous events- weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, galas and for individuals. 

 

  "Flowers are like dancers, only quieter…”

 

Fleur Elise Bkln arrangements are bespoke, completely individualized floral designs.  They start with the container, what is available at the Flower Market -  the shape, weight, textures and colors of the flora - and the environment in which the design will be seen. The result is always a completely unique, "in situ" arrangement.

 

"FLEUR ELISE BKLN TRANSFORMS YOUR FLORAL VISION INTO REAL LIFE. ELISE'S CREATIVE STYLE IS BOTH WHIMSICAL AND SOPHISTICATED. SHE WAS VERY ATTUNED TO OUR NEEDS AND CREATED MAGNIFICENT FLORAL DISPLAYS THAT COMPLIMENTED THE EVENT PERFECTLY.

-Shana Gee-Cohen, Development Manager, Keshet

 

"The flowers were perfect, exactly what we wanted and envisioned. they were beautiful and perfectly complimented the room and the color scheme..."
