Details. Details.

“It’s attention to detail that makes the difference between average and stunning.”

– Francis Atterbury

Always be stunning. It’s not the big things, but the little things; the small, attention to details that transform the ordinary into extraordinary!

As one of our longest Preferred Partners, The Flower Studio always delights!

Deep, rich hues of purples, yellows, oranges and plush greens bring outside floral textures indoors with fragrant, patterned and multi-layered designs to enchant the autumn season, and upcoming holiday months.

Be mesmerized by the talents of Gabi Bucataru of PhotoGabi and his stunning capture of floral artistry, up close and personal. #HuestudioPreferredPartners

As Charles Eames stated, “The details are not the details. They make the design”. Not only does The Flower Studio excel with every floral detail, but always elevates each unique event experience for The Huestudio + Company with exact precision and artistic talent.

Yes, it’s always about the details! Always.

All Treats! No Tricks.

[Preferred Partner Spotlight: Katherine Anne Confections]

Kaleidoscopic. Kind. Kindred. Knockout! Known. Katherine Anne!

. . . . . . . . . . .

. . . . . . . . . . .

On this last day of October 2017, we are all about sweet treats! No tricks from us.

We are honored to spotlight our longtime, and oh, so delicious preferred partner, Katherine Anne Confections! Creating local-focused sweets in Chicago since 2006, we highly recommend their scrumptious confectionary delights for every special occasion you might wish to celebrate.

All artisan confections are handmade completely from scratch with an intense focus on local, organic and fair-trade ingredients.

Decadent truffles are lovingly rolled + dipped by hand. Classic flavors include Lemon Poppyseed and Toasted Coconut Rum – however – innovative and limited-edition seasonal flavors [over 175 flavors are created each year!] spotlight Peanut Butter Coconut Curry or Goat Cheese Walnut, offering the unique chance to taste and try something new!

Silky caramels are made with local wildflower honey and organic agave nectar, instead of corn syrup. Popular flavors include Rosemary Sea Salt and Chocolate Walnut + are perfectly packaged to delight guests as charming favors in delicate flavors that are soft, floral and delicious!

Soft, pillowy marshmallows are made with local wildflower honey instead of corn syrup, with a slight touch of sea salt.

Perfectly toasted for creating exotic s’mores or melted in Katherine Anne’s rich, European-style sipping chocolate [named “one of the best 15 in America” by Fodor Travel], each marshmallow is simply delectable right out of the bag! #Yum

We simply love their packaging, crafted from handmade, cream-colored paper – and – gift bride + groom clients of The Huestudio + Company with our signature “Something Blue” appreciation gift, showcasing their 7-piece truffle box elegantly tied with a special tag, created in pointed pen by Bien Fait Calligraphy.

Merci Katherine Anne Confections for always creating exceptional, unparalleled and elegantly crafted confections for us, and for so many in the Chicagoland area, and beyond.

We love and adore everything single confection that you design and create! #HuestudioPreferredPartner

Some Things Are Wonderful!

Taking inspiration from the time-honored Old English rhyme of “Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”, the extraordinary artistry of Bien Fait Calligraphy adorns special and uniquely personal bestowals for wedding couples of The Huestudio + Company.

Gifted as small tokens of appreciation for selecting our Company for wedding planning services, these whimsical “good luck charms” reflect the uniqueness of the wedding couple in a thoughtful and personal manner.

Delight in these tokens of gratitude, recently gifted to Elizabeth + Daniel, a bride + groom of The Huestudio + Company.

Continuity represents Something Olde with an heirloom Hull Art Pottery vase. Collected by the wedding couple, the vase contains colors of the wedding palette.

Something New offers optimism for the future. With Italian heritages, this new bridal plate was simply perfect!

Symbolizing borrowed happiness, Something Borrowed are scrumptious spools of hand-dyed happiness ribbons by Joi Hunt of Bien Fait Calligraphy.

Something Blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity with a personal Bridal Agenda from Tiffany & Company. Who doesn’t love a special blue box to open?

Largely a British custom, A Sixpence in your Shoe, is a wish for good fortune and prosperity, and is playfully represented by three 2 pence coins from previous travels.

All four uniquely personal gifts magically come together to celebrate and honor an equally magical wedding couple in the most special way!

Congratulations + Best Wishes!

A Private Pool Christening!

Guided by the wisdom of Jurgen Kloop’s words of, “Life is too short not to celebrate nice moments”, over seventy-five invited guests came together to christen and celebrate a new pool and private home resort.

Unique and distinctively different floral arrangements by The Flower Studio graced festive tables around the pool covered by Over The Top, Inc. with an appropriately named specialty fabric, “Bubbles.”

“Colors answer feeling in man; shapes answer thought; and motion answers will.”

– John Sterling

Fine wines, craft beers and Italian sparking and still waters were plentiful throughout the private party.

Custom designed letterpress beverage napkins by Lucky Invitations artfully captured the owner’s words of “If you can’t go to the water…bring the water to you!”

Destination signs, custom made in the U.S.A. by Lizton Sign Shop, celebrated and paid homage to family birth places.

Chilled glasses of Veuve Clicquot were hand-passed to delighted guests to “officially” christen the pool while celebratory toasts in languages of Italian, Greek, German and English were spoken by family members as arches of clear water shot upwards from pool deck jets. 

With a love for sun and a quest for a relaxing, elegant personal retreat, this pool and private home resort is simply spectacular!

85 Years Young

“I’m not scared of growing old, I’m just scared of not achieving everything that I want to do.”

– Melanie Laurent

…………….

To celebrate several milestones, at 85 years young, Betty + W.C. Hughes were magically photographed at The Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky by the talented Collin Pierson.

With February birthday’s within days of each other, including a wedding anniversary honoring 57-years of marriage, the Hughes’ are life-long Kentuckians, not to mention special parents.

“Aging has a wonderful beauty and we should have respect for that.”

– Eartha Kitt

………….

Our sincere thanks and gratitude to Collin for taking time to capture the essence and spirit of these two precious people in our lives!
