Thursday Therapy at The Ivy Room

Posted on June 21st, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

We were so graciously invited to do floral and design at Thursday Therapy this month held at the Ivy Room. For those of you who don’t know, this is an event for wedding pros to meet, mingle and share their business ideas and strategies. The hosts Joan Cinquegrani and Bethany Fritz of Five Grain Events and Maypole Studios put on a great event once a month and we were so excited to add our custom designs to the tables of the Ivy Room.

We went a little out of the box with a purple and peach palette that matched the slate grey linens flawlessly. Purple succulents, lilac, and ranunculus set in silver, antique pedestal vases came to life in the space. We cannot wait to work at the Ivy Room again!

As always we loved chatting with our friend Elysia from Elysia Root Cakes and Natalie from the Ivy Room over a pomegranate spritzer. See some gorgeous shots of the night by Jason Brown with J. Brown Photo.


Thursday Therapy at Fox and Obel

Posted on February 11th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Life in Bloom was thrilled to provide the florals for the Wedding Networking Event, Thursday Therapy at Fox and Obel a few weeks ago in January.  This networking event meets once a month at a different venue each time in Chicago.  Each month a different caterer provides appetizers and cocktails, a different photographer shoots the event, and a different florist provides arrangements for the event.  It’s a great way to network with new wedding professionals and catch up with friends and colleagues.  We have met so many great vendors at this networking event and were honored to be asked to provide the florals for January’s event at Fox and Obel.  If you haven’t been to Fox and Obel, you should definitely check it out!  It is a beautiful space that overlooks the river at Illinois & McClurg.  The market bistro, which is where the event was held, is open daily for dinner and also for brunch on the weekends.  It is also a great option for rehearsal dinners, day-after brunches and even smaller wedding receptions.

Here are a few of our favorite images of our florals and the beautiful space. Big thanks to the talented Julia Franzosa for the images.  Enjoy!
