This past month we hosted our second floral designing workshop at our studio where attendees got to design their own floral compotes with their moms, daughters, sisters, etc.  We had a great group and we were so impressed with everyones’ final products.  In addition to teaching proper design technique and form, we taught a little bit […]

What could be a better start to a bachelorette party than champagne, cupcakes, music and all of your best friends creating flower crowns together? That was the start to Alyssa’s bachelorette party, a Life in Bloom Flower Crown Workshop! We had an absolute blast instructing Alyssa and her girls on how to create the perfect […]

Every summer, Chicago plays host to some of the hottest musicians in the world in Grant Park for Lollapalooza.  This past year, we hit the musical jackpot when we were asked to provide floral and decor for the Samsung Galaxy Backstage Artists Lounge. Not only was it cool to get to go behind the scenes […]

Back in November we produced an intimate, moody, candlelit wedding at the Chicago Athletic Association’s White City Ballroom for two very special Brides. The first snowfall of the year delicately covered the ground outside and made for a wintery whimsical view from the White City Ballroom while setting up.  From the ceremony to the dinner reception, […]

This wedding (and I mean this when I say it) was the definition of class.  With a great vendor team led by Kara Superfine, beautiful photographs by Averyhouse, and a gorgeous venue that is the Hinsdale Golf Club, how could you possibly go wrong?  You never know what October is going to bring you.  Some […]

This summer wedding was full of candlelight and color at the Ravenswood Restaurant of ArTango.  Laura & Dov were having a family style dinner with tapas so we adorned their tables with rustic brown lanterns, succulents, votives and bud vases full of vibrant colored flowers.  The floral palette was full of pinks, lavender, peaches, and […]

This early Fall Wedding in a Lincoln Park Restaurant was beautified with a neutral color palette and accented with lots of eucalyptus & olive greenery.  I seriously cannot get enough of these bouquets!  We combined neutral ivory & taupe roses with hints of ranunculus & lisianthus and lots of greenery in the form of olive […]

We hope you are ready for a whole lot of prettiness!  This wedding that we produced this past August at the Armour House in Lake Forest, IL had plenty prettiness to go around and was something straight out of a fairy tale!  This sweet couple had a vision of a blue floral palette, which can […]
