All of them! (Well, almost…) Bella Flora definitely embraces the stems of the season. Fall brings harvest stems like viburnum berries, twigs, fruits, poppy & scabiosa pods, rosehips, billy balls, millets, wheat, & lots of cuttings from Angela’s garden. We order from local farms in addition to receiving flowers from around the world - garden roses from California, orchids from Thailand & Hawaii, hydrangea from Holland, greens from Australia... Winter finds us full of evergreens, berries & branches, cymbidium orchids, roses, hydrangea, calla lilies, pepperberry, amaranthus, amaryllis, star of Bethlehem, ranunculus, lisianthus, cones, & pods of all kinds! We often use kale stems, artichokes, pears, & pomegranates in our winter designs. In Spring & Summer, Bella is in full bloom. From April to August, thousands of stems come through our doors for Weddings & Events. From peonies & ranunculus to zinnia & hops vine, the Bella team works with it all. We love having the ability to order almost anything!
How would you describe your style:
Lush, gorgeous color combinations, textural, artistic, sophisticated, personal, soulful… and sometimes earthy, without a flower in sight.
Are you available to pin on corsages and boutonnieres at the site?
Do you do bouquet preservation? If so, what is your cost?
How long have you been working with flowers?
Angela opened Angela’s Bella Flora over 14 years ago and worked in other flower shops for many years previous.
Are you available to deliver items from my ceremony to the reception?
What type of rental items do you have?
All kinds! Rustic crates, mercury glass compotes, tall glass pilsners, hundreds of vases, a gorgeous old typewriter… and don’t forget the old brown wheelbarrow! We love the combination of weathered & worn with sparkle & shine, and we try to provide specialty rental pieces to reflect that.
Are there any extra services you provide?
Event set-up & takedown upon request. We deliver to our North Shore resort neighbors (think Lutsen, Grand Superior Lodge…) and to event locations in Wisconsin as well. We do on-site design for flower scenes that require it.
Is there anything else you would like me to know?
We have a delightful team of ladies who love what they do. From our back office to our front of the house designers, Bella is a buzzing little studio full of great energy. Bella Flora has regularly been voted Best Florist in Duluth, MN by multiple area publications. Come and visit us! We’d love to meet you.
