Bride sues over flowers

A New York bride is suing a florist for £200,000 because the flowers they provided were the “wrong shade”.

Elana Glatt, who is a lawyer, is suing Posy Floral Design in Manhattan for alleged breach of contract, reports Sky News.

She says the firm substituted pastel pink and green hydrangeas for the dark rust and green ones she had specified for 22 centrepieces.

Ms Glatt filed the lawsuit on behalf of herself, her husband David and her mother-in-law, Tobi Glatt.

In it she says: “The use of predominantly pastel centrepieces had a significant impact on the look of the room and was entirely inconsistent with the vision the plaintiffs had bargained for.”

The flowers cost $27,000. The lawsuit asks for more than $400,000 in restitution and damages.

Stamos Arakas, the florist, said that he and his wife Paula tried to match the colour of the hydrangeas with a picture Ms Glatt had given them, but had explained the colours might not look the same.

Mr Arakas said: “My father used to tell me ‘Don’t deal with the lawyers’. Maybe he was right, God bless his soul.”
