Vendor Spotlight: Belle Fiori

Apr 3, 2019 | Milwaukee Venue Photographs

Belle Fiori is proud to be a real brick and mortar flower shop! They believe that no occasion is too small to celebrate with beautiful flowers. They’re passionate about creating one-of-a-kind arrangements for their corporate partners. Located on Milwaukee’s East Side at 2014 N. Farwell Ave, they also value serving their loyal neighborhood walk-in customers. They partner with local Wisconsin farms to source native blooms as well as a carefully cultivated list of international flower sources. But, the best thing about working with Belle Fiori is getting a whole team of event professionals supporting your vision and the execution of the design.

The Interview

Emily Neubauer is the owner of Belle Fiori and we had a chance to sit down with her and find out more about her business and her life!

What is your favorite adult beverage of choice? Rehorst Gin and sprite with lime
What is your favorite junk food? Kopp’s Custard
Do you have any pets? I have two dogs, Ellie and Evie (a husky and a german shepherd mix

What types of corporate events do you work on?

All kinds of things! Seminars, galas, holiday parties. We also have standing orders (part of retail store business) with some businesses such as hotels, corporate lobby designs, etc.

What is your favorite season to design for?

We love the seasonal aspect of floral design – it’s always changing so it never gets boring! Before you tire of any specific bloom or color palette, new flowers are coming into season and it’s time to do something fresh!

How do you start the design process with the clients?

Our potential clients receive a full quote before they put down a deposit. The first consult covers everything from an inspiration board to the number of centerpieces to design to delivery and cleanup. Then, about three weeks before the event, the design and flower orders are finalized!

What is your favorite trend this year?
After several years of white, blush, and generally neutral designs, color is making a comeback!

What do corporate clients forget to ask?

Budget and colors, how the space will be used (sightlines, etc) length of time arrangements are needed (sometimes one night, sometimes will need to last several days for a conference). Also, it’s important to tell us what you like AND what you don’t like. That helps us get to a great solution that much more quickly.
