This past July, our floral and decor company took over The Chicago Botanic Garden’s with some seriously beautiful blooms!  We spent the first weekend of July with back to back days in McGinley Pavilion.  And the first of the two weddings was Meaghan & Sean’s Friday wedding at The Chicago Botanic Gardens.   To start, […]

Happy New Year!!  Thank you so much for following along with Life in Bloom’s journey throughout this past year.  As we reflect on all that occurred in 2018 and start to look ahead at 2019, I can’t help but keep coming back to the word GROWTH.  2018 was the year of growth here at Life […]

As engagement season approaches, our calendars have started to fill up with new client consultations! And one questions that we often get in our initial meetings pertains to centerpiece styles.  The event decor nomenclature can prove somewhat foreign at times.  So today, we’re sharing a few common centerpiece styles so you can start to familiarize […]

Another year is in the Books here at Life In Bloom!  And we have so much to be thankful for. We are specifically thankful that we get to design beautiful bouquets for a living!  Including bridesmaid bouquets and bridal bouquets, doing the math, we figured out that our team designed over 500 bouquets this season […]

Not too hot, […]

That was the feeling upon completion of Kristina and Kevin’s Rockwell On The River Wedding. Rockwell on the River Wedding Venue, located between West Lakeview […]

It is always a breath of fresh air when our clients come to us wanting a truly unique floral palette.  Meredith and Casey used their floral palette to determine the color palette for the rest of their Summer wedding at The Ivy Room in July.  Their linens, their stationary, even their napkins were all influenced […]
