Bouquets & Beyond opened in January 2017. Brenda Christie, the founder and creative director of Bouquets & Beyond, started off as a home-based weddings and events business over fifteen years ago. She had always visualized an upscale floral boutique that would serve the local area showcasing a style and vision that only existed in New York City and Fairfield County.
Mission accomplished, we say.
Bouquets & Beyond design for every-day and special occasions, corporate events, weddings, sympathy tributes, home décor, and anything else you can imagine. Even a single red rose.

How to elevate and adorn an orchid plant
The part where we, and you, learn from the experts! When treated nicely, (Brenda has loads of tips) an orchid can last for years. Might as well dress it up a little!
- Pop your orchid in its original grower’s pot into a beautiful decorative pot you already own (or buy).
- Get rid of the plastic clip. #Basic.
- Add a branch of choice (Manzanita, Pussy Willow), and ditch the standard issue wooden stake.
- Weight the plant with decorative stones.
- Add pretty deer moss (comes in many colors).
- Add cones (always in odd numbers – just because!).
- Attach the orchid gently to the branch using gardener’s wire.
Whether it’s a large event, a corporate design, home installation, a special occasion design, or a sweet and petite floral arrangement, Bouquets & Beyond creates memorable moments and experiences that exceed expectations.
Be on the look out for floral arrangement classes in the future, but in the meantime, stop by Bouquets & Beyond and watch as Brenda and her team work their magic in front of your very eyes!
