Famed Floral Designer Now on Broadway

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Simply Sidney Floral Design and Home Accents, located at 268 Broadway, will open its doors to the public from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17 with a grand opening and ribbon-cutting event.

The new Simply Sidney Floral Design store will offer home furniture, accents, lamps, tables, chairs, sculpture and, of course, exquisite florals.

Sidney Martin’s artistic talent, keen esthetic eye and contagious enthusiasm have earned him a place as resident florist for Saratoga's Salt and Char Restaurant, the Adelphi Hotel and 15 Church Restaurant, as well as the Saratoga Performing Arts Center’s New York City Ballet Gala, Opera Saratoga Gala and Saratoga Hospital Gala.

Martin has produced floral décor on the sets of major motion pictures and Emmy-nominated television shows, in addition to the pages of bridal magazines and the red carpets of the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes and the Hollywood Film Festival.

Martin moved from Los Angeles and established residency in Saratoga Springs. He has catered to private clientele for home, special event, wedding and corporate occasions.
