Emily & Tim at Architectural Artifacts

This past April we were so excited to team up with LK Events for a beautiful and glowing wedding at Architectural Artifacts (coordinated by Artifact Events). This was one of those beautiful weddings when you're so excited during the planning phase.  You can picture the glow, you can see the floral, it's unique but still an incredibly classic Chicago wedding.  These kinds of weddings will never go out of date (Which is one of our goals!).  Taking place in the Ravenswood neighborhood inside the walls of a what feels like the best museum ever (Except that EVERYTHING IS AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE) it is a curio collection that always feels special and important.  Thank you to Emily and Tim for trusting the Fleur Team to be part of such a beautiful day.  We're thrilled to share these beautiful images captured by Olivia Leigh Photographie!

What's Cookin'?

We recently posted an image on our Instagram featuring some delicious dishes, alongside one of our Fog Linen dish towels that we carry.  So many of you asked for the recipe, so here it is!  We have Real Simple Magazine to thank for all the goodness, it was featured in their July 2018 issue!  

Fog Linen dishtowel available at Fleur Inc

Cucumber & Melon Salad

1 small shallot, chopped finely

5 Tbsp. Champagne or white wine vinegar (We used our own champagne vinegar, infused with chive blooms from our garden!)

1 - 3lb cantaloupe, peeled and chopped

1 english cucumber, sliced

6 oz of feta cheese (about 1 1/2 cups)  

1/2 loaf ciabatta, sliced

7 Tbsp olive oil 

1 1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup loosely packed basil leaves (ours came from the garden!)

1/2 cup roughly chopped toasted almonds (We used walnuts, because they were on hand!)

Freshly ground black pepper.

1. Mix together the shallots and vinegar.  Set aside to drizzle later on.

2. Arrange the cantaloupe and cucumber on a large platter and set that aside (We recommend using our DBO Home platter, shown below!).

3. Meanwhile, heat a cast iron grill pan and brush both side of the ciabatta with olive oil.  Grill until charred on both sides (We also rubbed fresh garlic on both sides for some extra delish!).

4.Whisk 1 tsp salt and the remaining olive oil into the shallot mixture & drizzle over the salad.  Top with the basil, walnuts pepper (to your taste) & sea salt.  Serve with the ciabatta!

5.Enjoy!

DBO Home available at Fleur

Wedding Bouquets for Days!

"Life is the flower for which love is the honey." ~ Victor Hugo

We've been working on our archives the past few weeks, and have been trying to choose a favorite wedding bouquet.  THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE.  However, we will say, we delighted in all the images that we have collected, knowing there are so many wonderful couples in love who  trusted us to be a part of their celebration.  Here are a few bouquets we simply adore.  We couldn't choose them all, because there are SO many, so you can expect a second post eventually with even more!

Modern Garden at The Joinery

We love weddings that are Logan Square based, and it was such a joy working at The Joinery this past April with Estera Events, Lula Cafe Catering & Nicodem Creative!  We really wish we could do this every weekend!  

The bride's bouquet had just enough of an organic feel with trailing foliage, yet balanced with plush focal blooms. Peonies popped back into season just in time for this wedding!

Greening the Ceiling

This past February we received a request that we absolutely loved.  "Can you please cove the entire ceiling of Ovation in hanging greenery and brass prisms with glowing votives?"  And of course our eyes turned into hearts and we replied, "OUR PLEASURE!"  The photos just came back and we couldn't be more excited but them.  This wedding was top notch.  It was a snowy weekend, but you wouldn't know that by looking inside.  Working with Bride & Joy Events, and photographed by Found Light Studios, it was simply everything.

Boutique Days

We're often asked, "When is the slow season at Fleur?"  There are certainly some days here and there that are slower.  You know, when there is a snow storm or random, biblical rain storm, but overall we like to keep our hands and feet moving and shaking.  It's somehow already May (And thankfully the weather caught up with the timeline), and have had so many gorgeous things already happening!

There are a lot of exciting changes happening.  Have you been by to see our new tile?  You know, the tile we asked you to vote on OVER A YEAR AGO... Sigh.  You always do things for yourself last.  However, it was finally installed and we are in love.  This is just the first phase of a lot of remodeling happening in the boutique.  Think of Paris meeting Tulum and having a love child - that's where we're headed.  Stop by regularly, you'll see what we mean.

We've also had a lot of classes!  Terrarium building, embroidery, and our first of an annual Mother/Daughter floral design class!  We were having SO much fun that we hardly remembered to snap any photos!  We're already so excited for next year!  Follow along our Instagram account (@Fleurinc) for updates on classes.  We take a little break from them in the summer, but more are always popping up.  Spoiler alert, we are currently working with an Austrian painter who will be traveling to Chicago come autumn and planning a class around her vacation.  OMG we can't even being to tell you how excited we are for this!!  More details will be available soon!

We've also worked more with West Elm!  It is always SUCH a delight to team up with them, meeting some of the most lovely people and having a total blast in general.  Thank you West Elm Chicago for hosting us!!  We have a few more incredible collaborations planned with them this summer as well!

Our weddings have been gorgeous this year so far. Our retail selections are ever changing (but we always keep our staples!).  More fine jewelry is on its way come late May and early June.  Our  one of a kind vintage items are coming back right after Mother's Day (Oh yeah, it's Mother's Day this Sunday) and our locally grown flowers provided by some of our favorite people in the world are back.  It's pretty exciting around here, hope to see you soon.

All the Glow at Bridgeport Art Center

In the past we've heard people ask, "Who would get married in the winter in Chicago?" and our response is basically, "The most bad ass couples you can imagine!"  Winter weddings are a true magical event.  There is something about walking into a glowing  venue filled with candle light when it's snowing and frigid outside.  Once you're there, all those winter thoughts melt away and you're left with nothing but warm & romantic vibes.  That was certainly the case at the Bridgeport Art Center Skyline loft this past January.  Such a gorgeous wedding with Lola Event Productions, Jeremy Lawson Photography & Art of Imagination.  Enjoy!!

January at Hotel Allegro

We love us a historic hotel wedding, and this gorgeous evening at Hotel Allegro is no exception.  The ceremony was truly the most glowing affair, with our glass and brass risers and a sea of candles.  The soft floral color palette gave the feeling of winter, yet still felt timeless and almost transcended season.  We adore the photos from Natalie Probst Photography, and the planning from Lola Event Productions was perfect.   Enjoy!

Sunshine Vibes at Bridgeport Art Center

OH MY GOSH, we are so IN LOVE with this wedding.  It's so lovely and wonderful to see bright and beautiful oranges, yellows, bright greens and ivories in a wedding.  Definitely one of our favorite color palettes that we don't often see at weddings.  This wedding at the Bridgeport Art Center with Estera Events was a September dream.  The colors truly remind of us creamsicles and  lemonade.  The photos from Megan Saul Photography are so wonderful, and we had a difficult time choosing which ones to feature!  Enjoy!

Summer Wedding at Ravenswood Event Center with Lola Event Productions!

It's been way too long, how have we not shared the images from this gorgeous, happy wedding at Ravenswood Event Center with you?  Slightly rustic, yet still elegant, this colorful wedding was coordinated by Lola Event Productions & all the images were take by Amanda Megan Miller Photography.  We love the wispy and dreamy chuppah aired with floating class orbs and the candlelit aisle.  The centerpieces were so happy and lovely!  We can't wait for our 2018 weddings here!

Winter Celebration at the Chicago Cultural Center

What a celebration, we loved this wedding at the Chicago Cultural Center.  Held on one of the coldest days of the year (The high was five degrees, the loading dock just a block from lake Michigan and it was an all day set up), but truly one of the warmest families we've ever worked with.  Combining Catholic and Jewish religions, we created a custom, 12' tall boxwood chuppah with a few Irish touches.  And candelabras, gorgeous, elevated arrangements, garlands and wreaths.  We'll never forget this magical day!  And a true dream team staring Five Grain Events, Becca Kaufman Orchestra, J & L Catering, Elegant Event Lighting, Nika Vaughan Bridal Artists and all the images from Jill Tiongco Photography.

Floral Design & Calligraphy Workshop with Layers of Loveliness

How did we forget to post photos of our last floral design & calligraphy workshop?  

Layers of Loveliness drove all the way from Indianapolis to teach a lovely group of ladies the art of calligraphy, then we learned a few tricks on how to create a floral centerpiece.  This was our second glass with Miya and they are truly the best.  Virtue Cider provided some delicious beverage and snacks came from the Dill Pickle Co-Op!  Hope to see you at the next one!

Invitation Suite with Samantha Meyer Studio & Nicole Elizabeth Photography!

One of the greatest things about the wedding industry is how many wonderfully creative people that we meet!  Nicole Elizabeth Photography sent us over some beautiful images of an invitation suite designed by Samantha Meyer Studio.  She had asked for a few blooms to compliment the paper goods, and they turned out perfect.  This is the perfect time of year to book your photographer and invitation designer, we definitely think you should keep these two ladies in mind!
