Introducing Bloomerent





We have partnered with Bloomerent to give brides and event hosts a way to ensure that their centerpieces won’t go to waste at the end of the evening. By working with Bloomerent we are able to list your centerpieces in their online database. Another event occurring around the same time as your wedding can "opt in" to your centerpieces and we will repurpose your flowers and deliver them to the other event. All you have to do is choose your flowers! Not only will you save money by sharing your flowers, but you will ensure that they get a second life at another wedding or special occasion. 
If you are looking to save money on centerpieces you can select from the list of available arrangements that our clients are offering and save from 40% to 60% on them. We pick the centerpieces up from their first use and bring them back to our studio and freshen them up before delivering them to you or you can save even more money by picking them up from our studio near Greenlake. We can even make minor changes to them to accommodate your palette.
We began our partnership with Bloomerent in March 2017. More centerpieces will become available as more of our clients choose to participate in this exciting program.
Bloomerent has been featured as an eco-friendly alternative in Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides Magazine, The Huffington Post, CNN and Inc. magazine.

Lawrence and Darrell's Big Gay Wedding

We were thrilled when Lawrence and Darrell asked Fiori Floral Design to do the flowers for their wedding. Lawrence and the owner have been friends for over 20 years and no one was happier that he was marrying the love of his life. 

When the Fiori team met with the couple to discuss their wedding flowers, they did not have specific ideas about what flowers they wanted, but they wanted them to be very personalized to their personality and the reception space. Woodsy and modern were a recurring theme. Perhaps sculptural?  There is a lot of wood and metal at the venue; can you incorporate that? Darrell looked around the studio and pointed out a few flowers that he liked – “I like those orchids but do they come in purple?” 

And that was the amount of instruction that we had. So that is what we started with, purple orchids and both woodsy and modern; very dissimilar ideas.  Industrial and sculptural.  And orchids...

And it all had to work with what was to be a very personalized wedding and reception for two superhero loving geeks that included Lord of the Rings wedding bands, vows that they wrote themselves, multiple food trucks and a charcuterie table, specialty cocktails and beer, a rainbow cake and a Death Star piñata. Challenge accepted. 
The Invitations
The Boutonnieres
Lord of the Rings Inspired Wedding Bands
Darrell's Super Hero Shoes
Waiting in the wings...
Lawrence and Darrell's self-written vows had everyone alternately in stitches...
And had them in tears.
Two grooms are better than one.
For the reception, we created a large, sculptural centerpiece with driftwood for the charcuterie table. We wanted something big and dramatic; a real focal point for the room. We created a base of moss with succulents and ferns and inserted Catteleya and Lady Slipper orchids. Additional succulents draped down the sides of the driftwood.  Staghorn ferns and airplants added additional greenery.  Additional Cattelya and Japhet orchids and whole stems of Phalaenopsis orchids added splashes of color.

Our goal was to create something that guest would talk about.  The result made the grooms cry (in a good way!).
The focal point of the main room.

Focal sculpture detail











The centerpieces expanded on the theme of the focal sculpture; incorporating Phalaenopsis or Japhet and Catteleya orchids, accented with succulents, and airplants.  Each was set on a square of galvanized metal to add an industrial feeling and then finished with moss and crushed purple glass.

Signature Cockatils






Cocktail Spices and Beer Sauces allowed for personalization of your beverage


Food trucks offered both savory and sweet meal options

Speeches from friends of the groom's added much levity
The charcuterie table became a dessert table later in the evening

A Big Gay Wedding needs a rainbow cake!
