At Life In Bloom, we are always trying to design events where the decor withstands the test of time.  We are deliberate about choosing materials (floral product, vases, linens, etc. ) that we believe to be truly timeless and elegant.  That being said, here are 6 Wedding Trends for 2018 that we are so excited […]

In the midst of a busy wedding season, we slowed down to create this beautiful Chicago Illuminating Company wedding. Since their wedding was filled with fine textures and the sweetest blooms, it’s one of our favorites. Our lovely bride, Sophie, grew up in France and wanted to incorporate touches of home throughout her Chicago Illuminating Company wedding. […]

2017 was an incredible year for the Life In Bloom team!  We designed and produced 51 weddings, 6 corporate events, 2 baby showers, and 1 bachelorette flower-crown workshop.  Contrast that to 43 weddings and 3 corporate events that we had in 2016 and you can see why this year was such a whirlwind!  None of […]

This year, for the Life In Bloom Holiday Party, we hosted our team at our new home with one noteworthy surprise.  We transformed our dining room into a life-sized gingerbread house! The gingerbread house was actually pretty simple to construct.  Using just cardboard from leftover boxes (florist problems), craft paper, white acrylic paint, candy-cane patterned […]

Baby Jake was welcomed home with a French inspired baby shower to meet his new family and friends. Guests were welcomed with decadent bites by Truffleberry Market, photos with baby Jake, and a bouquet […]

We met Torie and Amarit one night in Lincoln Park and were instantly captivated by their eye for design and appreciation for our craft. Not only were they getting married at one of our favorite wedding spots, The Ivy Room, but they were excited to hear about our favorite items to design. Together we created […]

Carroll and Eric wanted to bring a taste of Colorado to their Ivy Room fall wedding in Chicago, and that is exactly what we did. Using antlers, twigs, hanging amaranthus, berries, and a whole lot of natural foliage we brought the outdoors… in! There were so many unique pieces we want to highlight from this Ivy […]

Oh how we love a good Galleria Marchetti Outdoor Wedding Ceremony, especially when peonies are involved! Our sweet bride, Da Sel, wanted a romantic, pastel wedding full of peonies, hydrangea, dusty miller, garden roses and subtle touches of eucalyptus for her spring wedding. To start, it helped that Da Sel fully trusted our ceremony vision […]

It’s no secret that Morgan Manufacturing is one of our favorite wedding venues here in Chicago.  The large open floor plan, and the raw industrial finishes with the most gorgeously refined details all make this venue a great spot to say ‘I-Do’.  And that is exactly what Melissa and Adam did (underneath a beautiful display […]
