Silver Spring, Love is in the Air!

Paul and Debbie = LOVE

Month: October
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Ceremony: St. James Church, Menomonee Falls
Reception: Silver Spring Country Club, Menomonee Falls
Photographer: Stephanie Leigh Photography 

The words "Simply Charming" come to mind when I look back at Paul and Debbie's wedding.  From the soft pallet to the choice of flowers and greenery, and even the use of miniature succulent plants wrapped in burlap as their wedding favors for the guests.  Everything came together to make an enchanted day for the bride and groom.

Debbie chose roses and spray roses in soft pinks and peaches, with airy tufts of cream astilbe and succulents nestled in a loose mix of lush greenery like seeded eucalyptus and bay leaf.  This soft mix coordinated perfectly with her delicate lace dress and long, sheer veil.  Her maids held smaller versions of Debbie's bouquet, and the men were dressed to match with spray rose boutonnieres accented with the same lush greenery.

The centerpieces included a mix of vintage bottles filled with the same soft flowers used in the bouquets, were placed on birch slices, and accented with small succulent plants wrapped in burlap for each guest to take home.

It was so wonderful to be a part of Paul and Debbie's special day. Congratulations!

Bridal Fair of Washington County

Brides from all over Southeastern Wisconsin braved the cold and came out for the 16th Annual Bridal Fair of Washington County on January 29th.  The Washington County Fairgrounds hosted the event, and it was very well attended, by vendors and brides-to-be alike!  In addition to the 80+ vendors showing off their goods and services to the wedding community, there was also a fashion show featuring the latest bridal gowns, maids dresses, and tuxedos.  The show had everything that couples could possibly need for their special day, and all under one roof.

We here at Bank of Flowers were so excited to be a part of this great event again this year.  It gives us a chance to meet face-to-face with area brides, show off our floral skills, and get feedback from future brides.  Our Menomonee Falls Manager, Krista Roskopf, and Wedding Coordinator Kristin Reidelberger were both on site to talk to couples about their special day.  It was an amazing show!

Valentine's Day Means "I Love You!"

For hundreds of years, Valentine's Day has been thought of as the romance holiday, or only for couples.  This is the day that you shower your significant other with flowers, chocolates, teddy bears and balloons, dine out or in, do something romantic, or even get engaged.  Love rules the day.

Why does Valentine's day have to be just for couples?  Why can't it be the day to express the love you have for others, such as a parent or child, your friend, co-worker or neighbor.  And ladies, don't forget the men in your life!  They deserve a show of your affection as well.

Bank of Flowers is your destination for Valentine's Day.  Our 2 locations, Menomonee Falls and Pewaukee are fully stocked with beautiful roses and other fresh flowers, gorgeous blooming plants, chocolates and caramels, romantic gifts, huggable teddy bears, and bright mylar balloons.  Daily deliveries are made to Pewaukee, Oconomowoc, all of the Lake Country area, Germantown, Menomonee Falls and throughout Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties.  Send flowers and candy to your mom, she can share the chocolates with dad.  Your 6 year old would love the teddy bear with the "I love you" balloon.  Your neighbor who lets out your dog would appreciate a vase of tulips. There are many types of love and many different flowers to show it!

For those of you true romantics, 6 Million couples are likely to get engaged on Valentine's Day, (according to an American Express report).  Bank of Flowers is here for you too.  We create custom wedding flowers as well!  So no matter what the "Love" occasion is, we're here to help you show it!

Happy Valentine's Day!
