Spring Armour House Wedding

Posted on April 28th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Event Recaps. No Comments

Down a winding road in the lovely suburb of Lake Forest sits a historic venue called the Armour House. On March 4th, Andrea and Dan celebrated their marriage surrounded by family, friends, and the most delicate decor (if we do say so ourselves). Andrea’s vision for her wedding was perfectly in line with the style of the Armour House: romantic, delicate, and elegant.

The bouquet’s were full of unique textures and had just the right balance of greenery and floral. Andrea’s bridal bouquet stayed blush and white, while the girls added in some spring color. Garden roses, ranunculus, and lilac were the key florals.

Greenery is really what made the Armour House come to life. The grand staircase was draped with smilax, as well as the fountain, and escort card table. Pillar candles brought the romance into the reception with brass bud vases, lanterns, and beaded votives. A sprig of olive was placed on each guest’s place setting to tie everything together.

Thankfully, the incredible Caili Helsper was there to capture Andrea and Dan’s special moments and details, so we can remember this beautiful day for years to come!

Flower Friday: Muscari

Posted on March 27th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Uncategorized. No Comments

Happy Friday!  Today we are dishing about one of our favorite little bulb flowers, Muscari, also known as Grape Hyacinth for their tiny urn-shaped flowers that resemble bunches of grapes!  I love this finely textured flower in both the landscape and for its use in floral design.

In the landscape Muscari blooms in early Spring.  You can also expect to find it as a cut flower during this time.  They look stunning and create a great effect when massed in the landscape, such as lining a driveway or naturalizing through the beds.

I love using Muscari in fresh floral arrangements as a little accent flower and for a pop of color.  There aren’t many blue-hued flowers out there either, and this is one of our favorites.  It also looks so adorable as an accent in a boutonniere.  Enjoy the images below!

Have a great weekend!  If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend in Chicago may I suggest Macy’s Art in Bloom Show which is happening this weekend and goes through next Saturday, April 4th.  Check it out if you are in the area!

Organic & Elegant Wedding at Valley Lo

Posted on August 1st, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Lily & David were married at Redfield Grove this past Spring and celebrated with a beautiful reception at the Valley Lo Club in Glenview.  I loved the organic & elegant wedding look they incorporated throughout the whole day.  Kina Wicks captured all the special moments and little details of their wedding day perfectly!  See more of her stunning photos below!

Lily’s bouquet was one of my absolute favorites!  We incorporated the most beautiful blush peonies, pale peach garden roses, sweet-smelling lilac, blush ranunculus along with clematis and lots of greenery to create a loose organic look.  Lily purchased some gorgeous ribbon from Frou Frou Chic which really added another element to this whimsical bouquet and completed the look fantastically.  It was like something out of a dream.

Lily & David’s first look was so precious.  David proposed to Lily in front of this yellow door and they also incorporated it into their first look and wedding ceremony; so cute!

For the centerpieces, we rented an eclectic mix of vintage brass vessels of varying sizes and shapes from Refind Joy.  The floral palette consisted of blush, peach, & coral colors … Read More »


Mid America Club Colorful Spring Wedding

Posted on June 5th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Kate & Joe’s wedding was one for the books with some of the most perfect florals, in my opinion.  Their color palette was filled with gold, blush, and corals.  Kate’s bouquet was by far my favorite thing about this wedding and one of my all-time favorite bouquets to date!  We made a cascading bouquet full of the MOST gorgeous coral charm peonies, peach juliet roses, delicate sweet pea, ranunculus.  I could go on and on.  The flower gods truly sent us the most beautiful flowers for their wedding.  The bouquet complimented Kate’s gold dress beautifully.

Kate & Joe held their colorful Spring wedding at the Mid America Club, which is on the 80th floor of the AON tower.  Let me tell you, the view up there is incredible.  The room boasts expansive views of both Millennium Park and the lake.  For the centerpieces we used a variety of mercury glass candles to create different candlescapes on each table as they were holding a cocktail style reception.  The abundance of candlelight complimented the twinkling skyline perfectly.

Kate & Joe we loved working with you on your beautiful & fun wedding!!  Thanks for including us in your most special day.
