For over three decades, ÉLAN FLOWERS has served as an inspired standard in an ever changing floral industry. As an established design house with long standing relationships, our bespoke services communicate to the personal taste and vision of each of our clients.
Equal parts quality and integrity, we pride ourselves in using the freshest flowers that speak directly to the season, while keeping our design consistent to ÉLAN FLOWERS classic aesthetic with a contemporary twist.
Our floral studio in Soho also serves as a beautifully curated retail boutique, which allows for a truly delightful experience for the senses that we hope to share with you.
As co-owners of Élan, Patrick and Christine strive together to create beautiful experiences in our events and weddings as well as in our daily life in the shop. “Be Kind” is our motto and we are constantly inspired by our clients whose daily acts of kindness are reflected in their gifts of flowers celebrating the happy, sad and noteworthy occasions of life.
Patrick has been devoted to floral and event design for over two decades. He earned his Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP) accreditation through the International Live Events Association (ILEA). A visual and performing artist with an MFA from NYU, he began working in the NYC events industry in 1994 with Richard Aaron (Founder of www.BizBash.com). Patrick received Event Solutions Magazines Spotlight Award for “Designer of the Year” in 2009, during his decade as Visual Design Director for Empire Force Events. Patrick loves to create, consult and collaborate with clients; onsite at venues or Elan’s SoHo studio. His creative vision leads our talented team to fulfill each client’s dream floral design.
Christine has always had a dancing heart – she has worked as a professional dancer, choreographer and dance teacher/ teaching artist. Her great love has been sharing the gift of dance with marginalized children and their caregivers in international settings. She brings her love of beauty and style to her work at Élan and delights in the details of hand written cards, client connections and keeping a beautiful shop.
