A sprawling studio brimming with an ever-changing assortment of exceptional and unusual floral could easily spoil a person. But anyone who’s no longer able to appreciate the way flowers effortlessly make life more joyful surely needs a reassessment of priorities.
You’ll find it quite reassuring, then, to see how often our team still shows enthusiasm over the flowers and plants that grace our space.
It’s nice to know that beauty is not lost on them despite how much they encounter, day in and day out.
As September is upon us and the mild Chicago summer that seems to have just arrived prepares to makes way for fall, we can’t help but cling to each sun ray and soft breeze. So, in the spirit of not taking things for granted, our floral and event designers have shared some of the autumn flowers and plants that they look forward to in the coming weeks, as well as some of their favorite autumn affairs of yore.

Indeed, one of the many perks of working with flowers is their ability to remind us to enjoy the seasons, and to remember that there are always things to look forward to.
So, rather than mourn the end of summer, why not anticipate the crisp, bright season ahead?
We’ll leave you with some gorgeous autumn affairs to help you along:
Special thanks to all of our vendor partners for working beside us; to all of our venue partners for letting us embellish their beautiful spaces; and to all of our designers for reminding us of the beauty in every season.
