So you think you know flowers??

So, you think you know flowers? Well, here's a test and if you are correct you can win a prize. What's up for the prize? A $50 flower arrangement from Bella Fiori.

Name the flowers in this hand-tied bouquet:

Here's how it works:
1) Name all the fresh flowers used in this bouquet. You can either post it in a comment or email me directly.
2) You must reside in the Denver Metro area, or be willing to drive to our shop in Lakewood to pick up your arrangement.
3) If you prefer to have the arrangement delivered to a friend as a gift, that's fine by us!
4) If you are a current client that we are working with for an upcoming event you may elect to have the $50 credited towards your final invoice.
5) If you are a florist or wholesaler - well, you are disqualified. sorry! ;)

Any questions? Email me.
Good luck!

Flower Friday!

I rarely post photos of our works in progress but I really cannot help myself today. I'm in LOVE with these centerpieces.
Jen's father created them for us from his property - used a chainsaw to make these containers from trees that had fallen. We filled them with wet floral foam and went to work... filling them with peonies, poppies, stock, queen anne's lace, hydrangea, phlox, garden roses, spray roses, larkspur, ranunculus, tulips, snapdragons. They smell absolutely divine!

Shop News :: Where did May go??

Ok, I feel a theme coming on this year .. where are the months going and why are they going by so quickly??
May was busy & fun, definitely kicked off the wedding season!
At the shop - Raquel is having a great time at Bella Fiori, she has adjusted quite easily to studio life and isn't missing the life she knew working in walk-in flower shops.
Michelle & Ian welcomed their second child, Charlotte Rose was born on May 22 - the family is doing great! Congratulations to them & might I mention I love the name?? :)
Chad is extremely busy with Bella Rents, you can see him cruising around town with his team in this cool truck:

We participated in the NACE event which took place at Chair Covers & Linens shop at 6265 East Evans Avenue in Denver. I'll be posting all our designs from that event in a separate blog post. Bella Fiori provided all of the floral design, Bella Rents provided the chairs, tables, cab tables and canopies plus chandeliers.

Oh, we secured a new website for Bella Fiori - we now can be found at (Bella Rents can still be found at )

Two shots from my iPhone of one of the latest weddings.. can't wait to see the professional shots from this wedding - I just adore lilacs, peonies and garden roses!
This gorgeous wedding took place in Silverthorne on Memorial Day weekend, gorgeous weather! In addition to the flowers we provided the chairs for the ceremony by the river. We had a great time working with Ashley from Table 6 Productions.

As for me, I can usually be found at the shop blogging on and/or designing flowers with the help of Johann:

And right now .. I'm off to the wholesalers to pick up flowers for this weekend's fabulous events!
Love to you all, thanks for supporting Bella Fiori & Bella Rents!
