alternative valentines bouquets

Valentines Day is quickly approaching and so naturally, being florists, we are all experimenting with different arrangements we can make for customers on the big day. Nothing against the classic red rose bouquet, because those really are quite lovely. It's just fun to do something a little differently, right? That said, here are a few arrangements we've done this week in preparation. Perhaps we'll get a chance to make some more on Valentines Day!

If today was your wedding day, wouldn't you want this as your bouquet? I certainly wouldn't mind.

pink and purple

Pretty and super girly. What a great combo!

spring fever: part 2

Seriously, and its only January! Soon, all we'll be seeing are tulips, tulips, tulips!

cute gift tags...

..from our shop. The wedding themed tags are a whopping $0.95! I've already bought three...


I guess even though it's gross outside lately, we can make some beautiful sunshine-y arrangements.

january window!

Here are some bits and pieces of our January window display. We will probably be changing it soon to get ready for Valentine's Day, which I imagine will be very different and much more pink! Stay tuned!

Beautiful arrangement made by Leah in the shop last week.

current addiction: white and green

The white/green combo is becoming an addiction! It always looks nice though! You can focus more on the texture of the flowers that way.

bouquet of the week: pretty pastels

Paul made this bouquet of the week. The antique pitcher on it's own is gorgeous, but the subtle pastels in the flowers make it really sweet.

spring fever: part 1

The Holidays were great at the flower shop this year! Or I guess, is that last year? Anyhoo, one thing we are sure about is making clean, crisp arrangements worthy of the New Year. Holiday arrangements are fun, but there's nothing quite like the change in seasons, especially when that season is Spring. Yeah, I know it's a long ways away, especially in Chicago, but we can dream, right? The combination of yellow, white, and green is so refreshing right now. Now to begin our countdown to Spring!!
