The blog of a Seattle florist, floral design teacher and wedding artist. A Seattle wedding and event studio florist offering daily deliveries of fine floral arrangements throughout the greater Seattle area.
At Fiori Floral Design, we recognize that when a customer orders flowers from us, we are not just delivering an arrangement; we are also helping them convey emotions. it is a task that we take very seriously so, along with impeccable design, we also work very hard to provide exemplary customer service. We appreciate the trust that our customers have given us at all of the important moments of their life.
Our design team worked really went the extra mile to make sure that our offerings are diverse and each with the perfect finishing detail. For variety, we have Starstruck, a tropical Texture Box arrangement; Still Life, which was inspired by Dutch Master's paintings; and Pink Outside The Box, a hatbox filled with roses, hydrangeas and orchids. With so much to choose from, we are sure to have an arrangement for you that is as unique and and beautiful as your love.
Our exclusive designs also showcase what is currently hot in floral design. We have several arrangements featuring garden roses, those ruffly, big balls of beauty. Our arrangement named Still Life is a relaxed garden style floral that is perfectly on point with current trends. Our favorite arrangement has to be Pink Outside The Box, a floral in a cute pink hat box with a ribbon bow and crystal brooch. It is very special and unlike anything that we have offered before. I know that some of our customers will be ordering one for themselves!
To complete your Valentine gift, order a gift box of either macarons from Trophy Cupcakes or a delicious box of truffles from Dilettante Chocolates. Both confectionaries are Seattle institutions known for quality and simply delicious luxury treats!

Every year we like our dozen rose arrangements to be taken to the next level for Valentine's Day. This year we have chosen two gorgeous roses to do just that. For red roses, we have chosen Hearts; a deep red, petal dense rose that opens to reveal a heart shape inside. It is just gorgeous and looks like a garden rose. We are also offering Mayra, a true garden rose in a stunning shade of pink.
The roses are arranged into hydrangeas and accented with pieris japonica and fruited tree ivy. A trio of cymbidium orchids add a luxurious finish to an already stunning arrangement. We are using a simple white glass cylinder vase to complement the hydrangeas but keep the focus on the flowers. Each arrangement is available with twelve, eighteen and twenty four roses. The eighteen and twenty four rose arrangements also have an additional stem of hydrangea for an even more lush look.
Approximately 14 inches wide and 18 inches tall.

Parents are told that they are never to say that they have a favorite child. Fortunately floral designers are not held to the same standard. While I love all of my children, Pink Outside The Box is special. Maybe it is the White Cloud garden roses combined the Sweet Avalanche rose. Or maybe I just love the pink hat box which we have accented with striped ribbon and a crystal brooch. Whatever it is Pink Outside The Box - you are special to me!
Available in medium and large, Pink Outside The Box is further complemented by phalaenopsis orchid blooms, Queen Anne's lace, snowball viburnum, and silver dollar eucalyptus. The hat box will become a favorite storage container for some of her favorite memories.

Our Love Note floral puts a romantic twist on our popular Texture Box floral arrangements by featuring red roses in a matching ceramic container. The roses are accented with red Sweet William, blackberries, cymbidium orchids,and three varieties of succulents before we finish them with greenery. We have topped it all off with a heart made of lily grass to make sure that Love Note delivers just the right message this Valentine's Day. The object of your affection can transplant the succulents into potting soil to have plants that will serve as a lasting reminder of your love.
Approximately 6 inches square and 8 inches tall,
Perfectly complemented by a gift box of macarons from Trophy Cupcakes.
Our Texture Boxes were immediately popular when we introduced them in 2011 but Starstruck is the first time that we have offered a tropical variation. I have to say, I really love it! ❤️ We always have associated tropical with beaches, perhaps because those are the popular tropical tourist destinations, so we added starfish and a sand dollar to finish tying in a beach vibe. I think it worked spectacularly! Texture Boxes are so much fun to create because they offer so many layers of design. Elements are chosen so that there is a variety of sizes, shapes and textures in every box. From every angle that you look at them you will see something new. Our Texture Boxes are also gender neutral so whether your beloved is male or female, they are going to love it! And I guess you could say that I am starstruck by Starstruck.
A sixteen piece gift box of Dilettante Chocolate's truffles would complement Starstruck perfectly!
Hearts MosaicsDon't just give her your heart this Valentine's Day; give her hundreds of hearts in a random pattern on our Hearts Mosaic vase.

Approximately 9 inches wide and 8 inches tall.

Only shares of the Sponsor’s post of the entry will qualify for bonus entries into the Grand Prize Drawing. Shares of the contest entrant’s original post to the Sponsor’s Facebook page will not be counted towards Bonus Entries. Shares of the Sponsor’s post must occur between the beginning and end of the Voting Period as defined above to qualify to qualify for Bonus Entries. Shares of the Sponsor’s post must be publicly visible to be counted.
2) Every 20 Likes that the Sponsor’s post of the eligible entry receives will be granted a Bonus entry into the Prize Drawing. Likes of the contest entrant’s original post to the Sponsor’s Facebook page will not be counted towards Bonus Entries. Likes of the Sponsor’s post must occur between the beginning and the end of the Voting Period as defined above to qualify. To calculate the number of additional entries that a post receives for Likes, the total number of Likes received during the Voting Period will be divided by 20. One entry will be given for each whole number of the result. For example; 50 Likes will receive two Bonus Entries into the Prize Drawing (50 divided by 20 is 2.5; 2 (two) is the whole number and .5 is a fraction of a whole number and does not earn a Bonus Entry).
There will be no formal notification of the number of Bonus Entries granted to any Contest Entrant.
8.) Prize Drawing(s)
On or about the third business day of the month following the Voting Period, the Sponsor will select a potential winner in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received by the methods outlined above in Section 5 and all Bonus Entries that are granted per the rules in Section 7. The odds of being selected depend on the number of eligible entries received and Bonus Entries earned. The Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner via telephone or email on or about the first business day following the Prize Drawing. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within five (5) calendar days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries.

Each potential Grand Prize winner (parent/legal guardian if a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to complete, electronically sign and submit a Declaration of Compliance within five (5) calendar days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted or fails to submit the Declaration of Compliance within the required time period, or prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize. If the potential winner is at least 18 but still considered a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, who will be required to sign the Declaration of Compliance on the potential winners behalf and fulfill any other requirements imposed on winner set forth herein. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.
