Beaver Creek Wedding | Kate + Phil

We, at Cori Cook Floral Design, love cohesive, well-designed weddings!  That is why we loved working with Kate this summer on her destination wedding at Beaver Creek.  Everything about this wedding screams "Celebrate!" Most of our bride have a common love and appreciate for great floral design.  They can often be heard at consultations saying things like, "I just love all flowers..." Just like them, Kate has a passion for flowers.  So much so that she has created her own floral design business in Southern California and is doing quite well.  So it was a huge honor to be chosen as the person to design her flowers.  We used all kinds of cheery blooms like coral peonies, peony-tulips, kumquat vine, parrot tulips, ranunculus, and poppies.  What fun! 

We also love how her paperware was consistent, lively, and cohesive with the style of the wedding.  This is a new passion of ours...more on that to come very, very soon...so stay tuned!!!

Enjoy this lovely wedding and do yourself a favor and follow Kate's amazing blog: www.floretcadet.com  You won't be disappointed!

New Aprons | Cori Cook Floral Design

Introducing our new aprons!  Aren't they just adorable?

This summer, we went on a mission to find the perfect florist apron.  We searched high and low for aprons that were both functional and adorable.  Our findings = NOTHING.  Turns out someone, somewhere decided that florist aprons should all be boring, solid colors, and basically no fun.  Of course we wanted pattern, ruffles, embroidery, and functionality. So, we set out to have ours custom-designed.  Luckily, we found Aurora at Fabric Bliss who was willing to help us with our mission.  With the help of her brilliant mother and seamstress, Jude, we were able to design this masterpiece.  It has everything a florist could want in an apron.  It's got ruffles, a big floret pin, patterns, and tear-proof and waterproof lined deep pockets that hold all our tools during a big install.  We're in love.  

Thank you to all the happy hearts who took in this project: 

  • Morgan (for making it happen and for sketching the designs)
  • Aurora Sisneros from Fabric Bliss (we love you!)
  • Aurora's mother and genius seamstress, Jude
  • Amy Somerville, who beautifully custom embroidered our logo on the front of the apron (720.323.8675)

 Enjoy!
