What’s Your Valentine’s Style?

Posted on by BelleFiori

The flowers are arriving by the bucketful at Belle Fiori. Valentine’s week is finally here and our talented designers want to know, “What is YOUR Valentine’s style?” Here are just a few examples of what we have in mind, but we are also able to create whatever your heart desires!

Valentines Style 013

 

Girly and sweet: How about some feminine spring blooms in one of our keepsake vases, or a dozen beautiful pink roses tied with a satin bow. New at Belle Fiori this year is our “Sweet and Stylish” arrangement, featuring 6 red roses, a little bling, and 3 fresh baked cookies from The Cake Lady.  As a finishing touch, we love the pink grapefruit Eco candle.

Classic:  You cannot go wrong with a dozen red roses, artfully arranged with and assortment of greens and delicate accent flowers, along with our best selling Rose Petal candle. Might we also recommend a 1 lb box of delicious locally made chocolates from Ultimate Confections? Classic and so classy!

Valentines Style 006

Crafty and Quirky: Is your love into local craft fairs, Etsy and DIY? Check out these great mugs and planters from Beth Eaton Pottery. We are in love with this heart shaped succulent planter, robot sweetheart mugs and mini planters. Belle Fiori can fill these with plants or flowers at your request for a unique Valentine’s presentation. The  Northwoods Moss Eco candle is the new Belle Fiori favorite, and would make a fresh addition to these local handmade gifts!

Valentines Style 010 Valentines Style 009

Exotic: Your sweetie loves tiki bars, Thai food and the Tropical Dome, and they would love something colorful and exotic to remind them of warm faraway places. We have a gorgeous array of tropical flowers and greens in the shop for a high style design they are sure to adore. And for that extra special flare, a Love Spell Eco candle will add a little spark to your Valentine’s Day.

Custom Creations at Belle Fiori

Posted on by BelleFiori

This week, our florists at Belle Fiori wanted to share some recent floral designs that were custom created with a special event or loved one in mind. Personalizing is a service that we offer at no extra charge, and it can make a big impact with just a little extra time taken during the order to figure out what you’re looking for.

We love it when a client puts in the extra effort of finding out someone’s favorite color, flower, or style, but even more exciting is when we get requests for more specific themes. A favorite era? TV show? Style of decor? We’ve got you covered.

Call our flower experts in Milwaukee at 414-272-2234 to get going on your custom arrangement today! We really enjoy coming up with new and interesting ways to help you express yourself-and flowers are a great way to do it.

Check out some of Belle Fiori’s favorite custom floral creations to date!

Custom Design Trends for Valentine’s Day!

Posted on by BelleFiori

It’s almost here! The Belle Fiori designers are busy creating some unique, customizable floral arrangements for Valentine’s Day 2016.

Today’s bouquet is a style we call “low and lush.” It features roses, tulips, mini hydrangeas, stock, and lisianthus in a clean, contemporary ceramic cube. The best part? We can customize most of these flowers with your loved one’s favorite colors. Another added bonus…this one is also easy to transport home if you are having it delivered to the workplace. (Yes, Belle Fiori delivers in the Milwaukee and Southeastern Wisconsin area!)

Price range for this long lasting style during the holiday is $100-$ 200.

And no worries, we will also have the traditional red roses, done up with our own Belle Fiori flair!

You will be seeing more Valentine’s Day sneak peeks in the weeks to come. As always, our designers love creating something special just for you, so give us a call at 414-272-2234 for your own custom floral arrangement!

Floral Inspirations for Your Wedding Venue

Posted on by BelleFiori

At last weeks Wonderful World of Weddings show, Belle Fiori designers Erika Herman and Alex Covert came up with floral designs inspired by popular wedding venues in and around Milwaukee. The results were gorgeous, fresh, and innovative, drawing quite a bit of attention to our booth!

The Urban Chic collection featured loose and airy bouquets in creams, yellows and rich salmon shades accented with succulents, air plants and other unique greens. Air plant “terrarium” candle holders and a fragrant table swag of bay leaf and eucalyptus added a fresh botanical element. Perfect for venues such as the Pritzlaff, The Box, Swig and Turner Hall.

The Historic Elegance collection showcased rich shades of fuschia, copper, antique green, deep burgundy and soft peach accented with clematis and magnolia leaf. This collection featured a cascade bouquet, (very popular for 2016!) as well as a lavish topper arrangement on a tall gold trumpet vase. These lush arrangements would be right at home in some of Milwaukee’s famous historic ballrooms at the Pfister, the Grain Exchange or the Hilton City Center.

Belle Fiori Partner Feature: BlackBox Visual

Posted on by BelleFiori

Being a small business in Milwaukee has been a very rewarding experience for our shop over the last 11 years, and we owe much of Belle Fiori’s success to the wonderful connections we have made with other local vendors and businesses, who are proud of what we do and refer us to new clients. Likewise, we aspire to do the same whenever we have the opportunity, because we believe that this reciprocation is very important to the success of our community and city as whole.

Belle Fiori is continuously impressed and grateful to find that this practice yields some really incredible results for everyone! Yesterday, we had the pleasure of teaming up with the talented artists of Blackbox Visual for an exciting collaboration of Flowers and Film that we will reveal this month! We couldn’t be happier with our relationship with this fantastic motion graphics team, and we would like you to meet them!

Erik and Vassi, owners of Blackbox Visual, are MIAD Animation Alumni and a recently married creative force that are making a splash onto the Milwaukee scene with a wide variety of projects including corporate motion graphics, music videos, independent films and everything in between! They have been helping Belle Fiori to put together some new promotional videos that highlight our new space on Farwell Ave, and display our original floral designs in a unique visual way for our customers!

Special Event Recap – Wisconsin LGBT Wedding Expo

Posted on by BelleFiori

Marriage equality in Wisconsin is bringing more and more couples into the mix of Milwaukee wedding planning. Belle Fiori is thrilled to be a part of that. No matter what sort of celebration you’re planning, our florists are always excited to cater to the visions of our couples. If you are needing floral decor for your wedding, be sure to call us today at 414.272.2234 to schedule a complimentary consultation!

Belle Fiori recently participated in the second annual LGBT Wedding Expo presented by the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce hosted at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center. This year, we created a wedding theme including rich, fall colors combined with a variety of different textures in items such as bridal bouquets, boutonnieres, and table decor. The deep tones of burgundy and plum in the cymbidiums, mini calla lilies, carnations and stock were the perfect combination to create a deep, fall color pallete while the crisp and rough textures of scabiosa and thistle gave each arrangement a rustic semblance. We had a great time greeting and discussing wedding plans with our LGBT community this year!

Many thanks to everyone we partnered with for this great Southeastern Wisconsin event, and a special shout out to our friends at Married in Milwaukee for doing such an awesome job promoting it!
