A Sneak Peak

We wanted to share some photos from our first floral design class in our new studio space. We've custom designed the space to help us serve you better, whether it is creating florals of exquisite beauty to help you express just the right sentiment or teaching how to create beautiful floral arrangements. We're very proud of our new space and here's a sneak peak.

Lots of counter space to accommodate up to 10 students.


Full-length mirrors in the design area help you to see your work from all angles.


Our walk-in cooler (in the background) allows us to carry even more beautiful flowers for you.

We hope you've enjoyed this preview of our new studio. Although we will get more photos posted soon, we'd love for you to stop by and see it for yourself!

R David Adams Flowers


We are pleased to announce the addition of R David Adams Flowers to the Fiori Floral Design family of fine florists. We look forward to continuing to provide fine florals and outstanding customer service to the many long-time customers of R David Adams.

Founded over 15 years ago by R David Adams, the noted landscape architect and designer, R David Adams Flowers originated in a flower shop in Safeco Plaza, the former Seattle-First National Bank Building. From their retail space, their talented staff created floral arrangements incorporating elements of high-style, Asian and English traditions with an end result of unique beauty that were new to Seattle at the time. In 2007 they moved from their long-time downtown location to a studio space in the Cherry Hill Neighborhood of Seattle.

When the current owner of R David Adams Flowers chose to retire, we couldn't allow this storied brand of unique floral design to end. After discussions with the owner, we are honored to be trusted with the stewardship of this Seattle institution.

We welcome the customers of R David Adams and look forward to carrying on the tradition of providing fine florals in R David Adams unique style.

It's All About the Details

Lauren and Mike M.


This was one of the most intriguing weddings that we have ever worked. The bride and her mother did not have a lot of familiarity with flowers but both have an exquisite eye for detail. This sort of situation is right up our alley. It is in executing the details that we really shine as wedding florists. From ruching of the double-satin ribbon on the bridal parties' bouquets to match their dresses, a crystal button accent on the bride's bouquet, to tons of candles on altar for the ceremony, this wedding had so very many details that made it special.










When South American hydrangeas weren't white enough, we located the perfect pure white hydrangeas from a grower in Canada
.






Phaelenopsis orchid blooms added an ethereal quality to the ceremony flowers.
























Dusty Miller was a wonderful complement to the bridesmaid's silver dresses.




The famed Columbia Tower Club on 76th floor was the perfect setting for a beautiful sunset reception dinner. We combined tall florals with a lower version and tons of candles to create visual interest in the room.



























Deep blue ribbon to match the table linens was acce
nted with a sprig of rosemary - another one of the details that made this a truly splendid wedding.

















Clusters of flowers accented the gathered linens of the cake table and matched the cake flowers in the Mother of the Bride's vintage silver bowl.

The flowers at Lauren and Mike's wedding were truly fabulous. I still have some of the table bouquets blooming in my home, over a week later. We received so many compliments and inquiries regarding who the florist was. It was a pleasure working with you; thank you for your patience at this stressful and important time where details matter so much. Many thanks for a most beautiful wedding.

Each Valentine's Day, we take them a step further with more accents in beautiful combinations to make an already impressive floral spectacular. This year we've paired our roses with accents like agapanthus, scented geranium leaf, rex begonia and cymbidium orchids.

Our featured red rose this year is the dark and silky Black Baccara rose. This sultry rose is tops on our list for customers who want to express their love with something traditional but richer than most red roses.

Valentine's Day 2010 - Romance in Paradise

It's hard to believe that Valentine's Day is only a month away! It seems just a couple of months ago we were working late to finish romantic arrangements for delivery the next day. Valentine's Day will be here before you know it so we thought we would start sharing with you some of the romantic creations we are offering this year.

Every year we create a few limited edition floral arrangements to offer for Valentine's Day. This year, I think we have come up with some of the most beautiful designs and best values we have ever offered. The first of these is our tropical offering.

Romance in Paradise


This arrangement makes us think of warmer days spent on a beach on vacation. Add a tropical drink and you've got paradise. We combined pincushion proteas, Black Bacarra roses, oncidium orchdis, acacia, asclepias and ming fern for an arrangement that is warm and textural. All of these are arranged in a red, frosted glass vase.

This beautiful floral works well for customers wanting to give something a little less traditional and works well for men and women. Available in two sizes; small (right) for $90 to $115 and large (left) for $120 and up.



Available for delivery beginning February 10th.

Our sister store, Lavender & Vine Florists, has many beautiful arrangements for Valentine's Day as well. Click here to see them.


Valentine's Day Hours
We will be open Saturday, February 13th from 9 to 5 and Sunday, February 14th from 9 until 2 with delivery available both days.
