Petal it Forward!

Petal it Forward!
Spreading Kindness One Flower at a Time

Between our Vase Giveaway and Friday Name Game, we've enjoyed giving out many free flowers - but this time, the public had their turn!

Bank of Flowers and the Society of American Florists joined together for this amazing event! On Wednesday, October 11th, both Bank of Flowers locations once again opened up at 8 am to give away 400 FREE bouquets - but with a twist!

Each participant received TWO bouquets - one to keep (if preferred) and one to share with a friend, family member, or compete stranger to brighten their day. Many people were in love with this giveaway! We had a line down the block of people waiting (in the rain!) to spread some kindness! It warmed our hearts how many people showed up and all the stories we read about people making someone's day. It is Bank of Flower's goal to spread love and kindness, one flower at a time.

We can't wait for next year! Will you join us and Petal it Forward?

Davien's Wedding

Emily + Joe = LOVE!
A Popping Pink Wedding

Photographer: The Art of Life
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Ceremony/Reception: Davian's

Emily and Joe's wedding can be summed up in three words: bright, bold, and beautiful!

The couple chose a stunning arrangement of roses, hydrangeas, carnations, and stock in blush, pink, medium pink, hot pink, and fuchsia. The bouquets were compact and lush and had their handles wrapped in navy satin. The bridesmaids matched perfectly with the flowers, wearing short navy dresses matched with fuchsia heels. The groom's boutonniere was spray roses in fuchsia with a blush accent as well as some greens.

Emily and Joe said their "I do's" surrounded by friends and family at Davian's, where love was flowing throughout. The ceremony moved to the gazebo of Davian's, which was full of much laughter and dancing. It was a night to remember!

We are so happy for the loving couple, and wish you may year of happiness! Congrats to Emily and Joe!

4th of July Photoshoot

Red, White, and OOH!
A Popping Photo Shoot

Photography: Studio 29 Photography
Planning and Design: Weddings With a Twist, LLC
Flowers: Bank of Flowers
Hair and Makeup: Dana Welch

This photo shoot may have been taken in July, but this Wisconsin weather lately has made us miss this gorgeous shoot!

Our couple put their own unique twist on the widely celebrated holiday with a beautiful color palette of burgundy and dusty blue. They chose their favorite park for a stunning natural background and brought a cozy and casual vibe to a usually chaotic day. Keeping with the simple theme, picnic tables with mason jars, greenery, and florals were present throughout. But wanting to celebrate 4th of July, the couple sprinkled in red velvet cupcakes, festive drinks, smoke bombs, and of course, fireworks, ending the night with a bang.

We were so thrilled to have been part of this jaw-dropping photo shoot - it is for sure one of our favorites!

The couple's special day took place at Cuvee, where both their ceremony and reception was held surrounded by many friends and family.
