Wedding Inspiration :: Ten Mile Station

Can a venue be any more *Colorado* than Ten Mile Station in Breckenridge? Seriously? Look at this place:

During winter months it is a ski lodge. Summer months is becomes a wedding venue. It's gorgeous!
I snapped this photo after the ceremony had taken place and the wedding party had moved inside. We had built a simple style mandap for our bride. Again, combining the *Colorado* look with something a bit more clean lined & modern.

We had the pleasure of working with Ashley from Table 6 Productions and Jensen Sutta for photography. Great team! Can't wait to see Jensen's photos!

Flower Inspiration :: Garden Roses

Do you love garden roses? I sure do! Peonies end their season right about now and luckily we have garden roses coming into their prime to fill the peony void.

Here's a photo of Kelly's bridal bouquet with the bridesmaids' bouquets:

Wedding Inspiration :: JW Marriott Cherry Creek

We love a wedding at the
JW Marriott in Cherry Creek, what a fabulous & versatile space to work with. Our bride, Sara, and her mother, Carol, hired us to decorate the space & we had a lovely time working with them. We provided all of the twinkle lights across the ceiling, pipe and drape behind the stage area, uplighting around the perimeter of the room and, of course, all the flowers & chuppah. Sara & her fiance enjoy the outdoors and wanted to convey that natural, woodsy feel into their wedding. Carol likes the sophisticated feel. We combined these two wishes by using our Aspen chuppah and decorating it with curly willow & seeded eucalyptus and flowers. For Carol we were able to add in the sophisticated feel with the draping and lighting elements, in addition to the chair covers provided by Chair Covers & Linens.
A special "thank you" to Betsy from the JW Marriott - she was absolutely a pleasure to work with, we can't wait to work with her again!
Here is a photo of the bouquet Sara carried, it was created with antique green hydrangea, pink dahlias, pink roses, pink freesia and seeded eucalyptus:

We received a little note from Sara the day after her wedding:
"Hi Alicia,
The flowers, my bouquet, and everything about the evening was perfect! Thank you so much for everything. I really appreciate your help and will definitely recommend you to my friends!

Thanks again, Sara"

Shop News :: What's happening at Bella Fiori

Would you like to take a guess at what is happening at Bella Fiori? If you guessed we are busy with wedding season you are completely correct! Sorry, you don't win a prize, I think it was too simple of a question. :)

My obsession with the camera continues and I've purchased another lens to work with. Some of the photos I snapped with it:

Johann loves to have his photo taken. And yes, just two puppy pictures. I'm up to something with the flower pictures.. so can't post them right now. :)

Coming soon... flower photos from my photographer friends!
However, right now - off to run some errands & enjoy the rest of my Tuesday. Tomorrow all the flowers arrive again at the shop, time to prep for a fabulous weekend!

Flower Arrangements for Deliveries

I've realized lately that many of our event clients and vendor friends don't know that we provide flowers for all occasions, not just wedding & special event flowers.
We do offer flowers for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, thinking of you and get-well wishes. These arrangements can be delivered and start at $50 each.
Here's a sample of one of our get-well arrangements which recently went out the door:

We do offer Sympathy Arrangements - including the sprays displayed on easels & casket sprays. Here is a lovely display we just delivered recently using lilies, hydrangea & peonies:

Orders can be placed over the phone at : 303-233-5566 or placed online thru our website
Also, we are members of bbrooks fine flowers & can send flowers worldwide through them.

Flower Friday

Today while visiting at Stevens & Son Wholesale in Arvada I came across this beautiful new variety of Stargazer lily. Audrey was telling me about how they'll start growing two varieties in the coming months in their greenhouses. I was instantly amazed and drawn into it's complex petal structure.

For any of my national flower friends - Stevens & Son does ship throughout the USA.
