Introducing Fiori Floral Design at Nordstrom

We are thrilled to announce that Fiori Floral Design has opened a boutique in Nordstrom's flagship store in Downtown Seattle.  Nordstrom's great fashion style is a perfect match for our stylish, temporary works of art.

So what is different in the boutique than in our studio?  While our studio will continue to focus on beautiful custom designed floral arrangements and orchid plants, the boutique will have pre-made hand-tied arrangements, vased arrangements, plants and cards.  It will be the perfect place to drop by and pick up something that is ready to go.  If you don't see what you are looking for we can create something for you in our studio and deliver it to the recipient or the boutique for you to pick up.  

In addition to our traditional Fiori pavé style arrangements, we have designed a few things that are only available in the boutique.

Hand-tied Arrangements

For a quick grab-and-go gift, we have a selection of pre-wrapped hand-tied arrangements with Fiori Floral Design's inimitable style.  We put these together using only premium flowers and always include a packet of flower food and care tips to make sure they last.  Our hand-ties feature season flowers or roses and begin at $25 and are available exclusively for pick up in our Nordstrom boutique.

Loose Flowers
Not finding what you want in our pre-wrapped arrangements?  We will be glad to custom design something for you from our selection of flowers by the stem.  Our selection of loose flowers will constantly vary to match our weekly color palette and what is in season, as well a wonderful selection of rose varieties you won't find in most flower shops.

A Little Fiori

These adorable miniatures of our classic floral arrangements are sure to please. They are the perfect size for a desk or side table and make a gift when you need just a little something to express your feelings.  Beginning at just $30, they are a great little pick me up.  Available exclusively for pick-up in our Nordstrom Boutique.

Bring your empty vase in on Friday and we will refill for you to pick up on Monday so you can enjoy flowers on your desk all week, and we will take $5 off your fresh arrangement.    

Vased Arrangements 

Of course you will find vased arrangements with our inimitable style in our Nordstrom boutique.  We've also designed some special florals like our Texture Box pictured above using all premium elements in a wooden box.  Delivery is available on all vased arrangements $50 and over Monday through Saturday.

Orchids and Plants
Fiori Floral Design has long been known for our beautiful potted phaelenopsis orchid plants.  We've added a wonderful selection of exotic orchids as well as green and blooming plants, all beautifully potted and dressed and available in our Nordstrom floral boutique.  Perfect as a housewarming gift or a thank you, potted plants begin at $15, orchids at $50.  Delivery is available on all plants $50 and over.

Tokyo Milk Greeting Cards
Trust me, totally hot.
Personalize your gift with one of our new greeting cards from Tokyo Milk by Margo Elena.  These witty cards are printed in the United States on heavy card stock and accented by hand with glitter. Add a Tokyo Milk greeting card to you order for just $5.00. 

Exclusively in our Nordstrom floral boutique.

Any order over $50 is eligible for delivery in the greater Seattle area.  Delivery begins at $10 for the central portion of Seattle, $12 for the rest of Seattle, $15 to the Eastside and $20 for outlying areas. Delivery by courier is available from Everett to Olympia Tuesday through Friday for an additional fee. 

So come visit us at Nordstrom to see what is new and meet our wonderful staff.  We are just inside the Southeast entrance on Pine Street, close to Pacific Place. We also welcome you to stop by to see what we are working on in our studio a few block away at 1820 Terry Avenue between Stewart and Howell.

Our boutique's phone number is 206.628.1910.

Wedding Accolade

Thank you so much for your hard work in your floral arrangements. It is a key beauty element that added to our gorgeous day. You have been so patient, and are such a great listener. The floral arrangements were stunning and was exactly what Mark and I wanted -- chic, contemporary, and warm. The hundreds of candles and simple pieces you suggested to do for the bar tables were great finishing touches as well.

We really appreciated you going above and beyond by putting your work on hold and making those extra corsages and boutonnieres. I apologize for sounding so frantic that morning and desperately wanted to let you know as soon as things calmed down how elated I was with the way things turned out. The day was perfect and we had so many people ask about your work. I just saw your invoice email and the big news of the grand opening (of your new store in September) -- CONGRATS!!!! Made a facebook announcement for those who inquired about my floral arrangements and let them know the big news too. Good luck on your future endeavors and looking forward to seeing more of your dazzling work!

Sincerest Gratitude,

Thao and Mark

Valentine's Day 2011 - Rose Florals

For our signature rose floral offering, we have chosen three extraordinary roses. For our red rose, the silky, deep red of Black Bacarra. This sultry rose is darker and richer in color than a traditional red to better show your deep affections for the one you love.

For non-traditionalists, we have selected Cherry Brandy roses; an exquisite combination of hot pink on the outside and yellow in the inside. Pair this fabulous color combination with exceptionally large blooms and you have a rose that says "I love you" in more ways than one.

Thinking even more outside the box we have the warm beauty of Orange Milva roses; a deep orange rose with hints of hot pink and peach. This hot rose stands out in a crowd.
