Lilies are lovely for all occasions!

Derived from the Greek word "leiron," which is believed to be a reference to the white Madonna lily, the lily was held in high regard by the ancient Greeks, who believed that the lily sprouted from the milk of Hera, the queen of the gods. Here at the boutique, we think lilies are beautiful to use in designs for all occasions. The best part is that there are so many varieties of lilies and they come in so many different colors! Next time you order your flowers, keep this in mind about lilies:

- Lilies are the 30th wedding anniversary flower as it signifies devotion, beauty, and pride.
- It is also the May birth flower.
- Lilies of the Valley are the second anniversary flower, signifying purity of heart and happiness. - Lilies of the Valley are considered a sign of devotion and humility.
- Lilies are often seen at funerals because the flower symbolizes that the soul of the departed has been granted restored innocence after death.

Wedding Invitations 101

Fall and winter months are very busy for us with clients who are planning their spring and summer weddings. Here is a general timeline of how things work at our boutique.

Step 1: Initial Consultation with Head Designer (approx 1hr appointment)
Over cups of tea, couples meet at the boutique with our head designer to discuss the details of their wedding invitations. While couples are encouraged to bring pictures of their inspirations, they are not obligated to do so since the meeting is all about discussing designs, printing and paper choices, and other various needs of the couples.

Step 2: Proposal
Within 24 hours, couples receive an electronic proposal of everything discussed during the consultation. Couples can review exactly what they ordered as well as an estimated cost of their order.

Step 3: Proofs
Once the couple has confirmed that they love the design and the price for their wedding invitation package, we immediately go into production with the proofs so that the couple can see and feel exactly what they are ordering before we produce 500 of them!

Step 4: Delivery
Depending on how intricate and how many invitations and other paper products the couple decides to order, the production process can take anywhere from 1 business day to 3 weeks. Upon completing the order, the client can feel free to pick up the order from the boutique or we can ship it to the clients anywhere in the U.S.

If you have any questions regarding this information, please feel free to call the boutique at 267.392.5763.

Flowers....Not just for your homes and offices

We have so much fun with flowers at the boutique! Our favorite thing to do with flowers other than design with them? Wearing them! Here at the boutique, you can custom order any type of flower to wear - real or silk! Flowers make great hair accessories for weddings and social events! Check out this veil piece we made for a very special bride using a big blue peony and feathers!
