Fall is Here at Belle Fiori!

Posted on by BelleFiori

Is it just us, or did fall hit overnight like a 40-degree front of chilly autumn awakening? Maybe it’s the weather, or maybe it’s the fact that the kids are back in school and Halloween candy has already hit the shelves, but no matter what it is…fall is upon us.

Here at Belle Fiori, we always welcome the changing of seasons in Southeastern Wisconsin. New, in-season florals and greenery are available for bouquets and arrangements and we also get the opportunity to switch up our in-store displays.

With this fall season being our first at Belle Fiori’s new shop, we’re especially excited to share our seasonal displays with the Milwaukee community. Fall leaves, festive pumpkins, and the rich earth tones of autumn landscapes provide us with endless inspiration as the temperatures drop.

We encourage you to stop in at our new location to check out our updated interior. Though fall hasn’t officially begun, we’re ready for it at Belle Fiori, and we’re ready and waiting to create your perfect fall arrangements and gifts. Weather you’re looking for an everyday bouquet, candles, cards, or other small gifts, any excuse is a good one to come visit us!

We hope to see you soon!

Featured Milwaukee Wedding: Ellen & Ruben

Posted on by BelleFiori

Ellen and Ruben’s Milwaukee wedding was one of our favorites. Showcasing our romantic and elegant Belle Fiori style, this collection of floral arrangements were the perfect design for this classic couple. The black and white versions of the photographs on Heather’s blog are so timeless that they look like they could have been taken in any era. With Ruben’s groomed Ivy League haircut and Ellen’s fur shawl, it was no surprise that he was fitted with a simple single white rose boutonniere and she held a lush tailored, romantic rose bouquet in classic creams, pastel pinks, and whites. Her bouquet also featured fragrant stock and a tight crown of seeded Eucalyptus-an excellent textural addition.

The bridesmaid’s bouquets were fashioned in a similar style, but incorporated moody fall tones of purple carnations and lisianthus, lime green hydrangea, cream spray roses, and pops of red hypericum berries. The reception was in the lovely traditional style dining room of the Bluemound Country Club, brightened by a wall of windows filtering in the sunlight. It was a stunning and sophisticated venue to say the least. The large, lush silver candelabra and lantern centerpieces fit in perfectly and surprised with unique elements like fall purple kale.

While our florists at Belle Fiori love all styles and themes of weddings, we can’t help but have a sweet spot for classic elegance. Congratulations Ellen and Ruben!

Featured Milwaukee Wedding-Diana & Kyle

Posted on by BelleFiori

Diana and Kyle were a blast. Currently living in Chicago, they were thrilled to be having their “destination” wedding in Milwaukee. It was the perfect spring day.

Diana and Kyle treated their guests to a unique experience showing off the architectural diversity Milwaukee has to offer by vowing their love at the gorgeous Villa Terrace, and celebrating with a reception at the quaint and modern space of The Hamilton.

It was a lovely contrast of urban elegance. Columns and lush gardens juxtaposed with raw cream city brick. The bridal bouquet echoed this theme with bold textures and grouped palettes of purple iris, orchids and stock, hot pink spray roses, and blue delphinium, softened just slightly by lavender tulips and a cascading traditional style. The bridesmaids had small loose textural clusters of the same flowers, perfectly complementing Diana’s look.

Check out out some gorgeous shots from their fabulous day!

Featured Milwaukee Wedding: Allison & Ben

Posted on by BelleFiori

We’re in the heart of wedding season here in Southeastern Wisconsin. Brides and grooms from all over the Milwaukee area are in and out of Belle Fiori daily planning their bouquets and floral arrangements. And when the weekend rolls around? Our florists are right there making sure all the gorgeous displays get where they need to be.

We look forward to updating you with wedding features throughout 2014 and we can’t wait to see all the gorgeous photos pouring in from the outstanding photographers selected by our couples.

Check out some images below from Allison and Ben’s downtown nuptials!

For Allison and Ben’s big day, Allison picked out a lovely light blue bridesmaids dress color, but knew that there weren’t many flowers that grow naturally in blue, so she decided to focus on texture for the bouquets. By pulling in cool hues with extra-large succulents as a focal points, we were able to work with her to create fantastic displays to complement her wedding day palette.

The succulents were accented with white hydrangea, vibrant green hypericum berries, grey broad-leaf dusty miller, and a unique burgundy foliage called agonis. The boutonnieres were a single succulent accented with eucalyptus seeds-perfect for the gentlemen’s attire.

Congratulations to Allison and Ben on their perfect day. Your wedding was spectacular and the Pfister was an excellent backdrop to your carefully selected florals!
