One of the best elements of being a part of the Belle Fiori family is the wonderful people we get to meet and work with on a daily basis. Our exceptional Milwaukee area clients keep our shop thriving, but I’d also like to give a shout out to Belle Fiori’s team of floral designers and associates.
We’ve been told that exceptional customer service and expert floral design are what set us apart from other Southeastern Wisconsin shops, and for that I must give thanks to our fabulous staff.
This week, we’ll be starting our Employee Feature segment of the blog! Check back for regular blog features where you’ll get to know a little more about the friendly faces of Belle Fiori!
And now…meet Aly!
Name: Alyson Taddeucci
Tell us a little bit about your self: I am a part-time employee of Belle Fiori and spend the remainder of my time studying physical therapy at Marquette University. I am originally from a suburb of Chicago and consider Milwaukee to be my second home. I love concert hopping at the various venues around the city and enjoy spending time outdoors.
How long have you worked at Belle Fiori? I have worked at Belle Fiori for the past 3 years give or take.
What is your position? Floral designer
What sparked your interest in floral design? My dad’s childhood best friend inherited a family owned floral shop that was 5 minutes away from my home. When I was 15 I decided to start job hunting and knew that my older sister (who worked at the family-owned flower shop) was about to depart for college. I approached my dad’s friend about replacing my sister at the shop and he agreed to let me. The rest is history!
When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be? I loved crafting, creativity, and artistic outlets when I was younger. I constantly changed my mind on my future profession and jumped around from wanting to be an artist, architect, and chef.
What is your favorite season? Why? I absolutely love fall. There’s something so indescribably great about the crisp air and changing leaves contrasted against bright blue skies that I can’t get enough of.
If you weren’t in the field of floral design, what would you be doing? Physical Therapy
What is your favorite part about living in Milwaukee? I love how adventurous the city allows me to be. There’s so many delicious restaurants and fun boutiques to explore along with great parks and hiking trails.
What is your favorite floral trend? I really love the look of succulents in wedding bouquets along with the use of a variety of textures. I especially like scabiosa pods and dusty miller as well.
If you could have 1 super power, what would it be? I would definitely want to have teleportation abilities. I become very attached to cities and places that I’ve gone to in the past and being able to visit them at the drop of a hat would be incredibly fun.
What would I find in your refrigerator at home? Almost always a gallon of milk. I go through about one a week just by myself.
Make sure to stop in at Belle Fiori and say hello to Aly!
