THEMED WEDDINGS ARE BACK IN FASHION

Posted on: February 22nd, 2018 by Lela No Comments
BLACK&WHITE WEDDINGS – ORGINAL AND DIFFERENT!

The Wedding Fair in Zagreb has just ended. Though the boho and vintage style are still very popular, there are more people who want something totally original and different. One thing is for sure, the themed weddings are back. Exactly these kinds of weddings are our specialty and passion. The themes for weddings could be varied. They could be determined by colour, song, some historical period, whatever you find important and interesting. In that lies the magic. That is to say, a new and original wedding could be developed from every topic. We have decided, inspired by the Great Gatsby style and the Art Deco period, for black&white combinations in all possible ways.

The themed weddings don’t have to be more expensive than some of the styles seen so far, but are simply more original and planned to the finest details. A detail, by detail, we develop a complete themed story.

We’ve been planning and organising weddings for many years and working on various themed weddings which we find to be the most beautiful and creative parts of our work. When clients determine the wedding theme they want, and than leave all to professionals, here the real magic begins. The clients’ faith in us enables us to show the best of our own creativity and to produce a story that is incorporated into the original themed wedding all the way to the tiniest details. All the details fit into one interesting story including the location, band, photographers, invitations, menu, cakes, protocol, decor, scenery, lights, textile and flower decoration, guest gifts. … All the details fit into one interesting story. The most beautiful and completely original themed weddings are total hit and they are returning into fashion with a big bang!

themed weddings are back in fashion

The Wedding Fair was a chance to play with the black&white combination that we spiced up with some red colour. A few unexpected details like feathers in floral decorations, a red sofa, a big lollipop, original cakes and striking black tablecloths were all part of the set design that additionally highlighted the simple yet powerful combination of black&white. The effect was fantastic, what was also confirmed by the Award for the Most Beautiful Exhibition Space at the Fair.

Thanks to our experience, we are always sure about our work and when to enhance or reduce colour effects, whether to use feathers or just white flowers, whether to place black dots on cakes or just straight black lines, or to play with glossy brooches instead of ribbon bows.

themed weddings are back in fashion

We have often been asked about trends, and I like to say that we are the ones that create trends. We can also implement all of our creative ideas and concepts due to our experienced team, partners and suppliers. So, we are always in the process of recreating some brand new and original stories, and we create trends that are not just copy-paste variants.

WHY WOULD YOU NEED A WEDDING PLANNER?

Posted on: February 3rd, 2018 by Lela No Comments
PERFECT AND RELAXING WEDDINGS WITH OUR WEDDING PLANNER

A WEDDING PLANNER

a wedding planner IS THE BEST KOMPANY ON YOU WEDDINGS.

A wedding planner

A wedding planner is someone who can be of great help during the organization of your dream day, but there are still many couples who consider that the best way to organise their wedding is to do it on their own, which is sometimes true. Massive numbers of wedding planners have recently emerged on the Croatian market and, in accordance to this, the great unprofessionality that have caused many people to distrust planners. However, there are more reasons why a wedding planner might be of great help. Before choosing your wedding planner or organizer, make sure you check his/her references and experience. It doesn’t matter where your location is, a good planner can organise a wedding at the other end of the country or even abroad. Due to his/her rich experience, variety of inventories, a great supporting team and numerous vendors to work with, a true planner can really manifest all your concepts and ideas.

A wedding planner

Why choose a wedding planner? Certainly he/she hasn’t been working on this kind of organisation for the fist time, regardless of the number of guests. Nothing can substitute experience, on top of that a planner has a big database of collaborators. Our planner approaches your wedding as if it were the most important wedding in the world. We consider that each wedding is unique. You will feel much better knowing you have someone to whom you can present your ideas, wishes, suggestions and the planner’s job is to make them happen. A planner can sometimes give you his/her own constructive suggestions or ideas if considers that something even better can be incorporated in your wedding.

One of the most important things, apart from the experience, is the notion that a planner works for the couple to be married and is not affected by the parents, the best men, the bridesmaids or somebody else. So you can be sure that your wishes will eventually be taken care of, without the additional “but”.

Why else would it be important to have a planner – you can rely on a professional who knows every detail of your wedding organisation and takes care that even the smallest detail is in place. It is a person who enables you to relax and enjoy your own wedding day.

Numerous weddings are behind the Lela Design Team and what has turned out to be common to all of them were happy and satisfied newlyweds who continued to cooperate with the team after the wedding. They were full of impressions and even a little bit sad because the wedding was over. That is attributed to not exhausting themselves versus couples who organize everything by themselves.

You may think that you can do everything on your own and accordingly spend less money. The fact is that the money you pay for a planner is shortly repaid. As I already mentioned, a planer works with numerous suppliers and has the ability to make discounts, something you can never achieve yourself, also would like to point out the greatest advantage that comes with a planner is an additional team of experienced professionals who are in charge of every detail on your wedding, so that you can relax and enjoy yourself.

Our task is that everything function without mistakes. We control all the details, but nobody should even realize that we are present. We take care of the protocol, the lighting that accompanies the newlyweds during their first dance, the wedding cake that should be served in the right moment, how many glasses of champagne should be served during the cutting of the cake, who needs to be on the dance floor – whether only the newlyweds, or the parents and the best man/bridesmaid, the guests’ schedule, unexpected guests, musicians and making sure that they don’t have too many intervals, electricity, heating, weather conditions … absolutely everything.
A planner is your best “guest” due to the fact that it is his/her job to look after you and everything you want to happen on your wedding day. It is a person who manages the whole orchestra in order to make your wedding perfect, just how you want to remember it, as an unforgettable experience without stress.

A WINTER WEDDING – REAL WINTER FAIRY TALE

Posted on: November 27th, 2017 by Lela No Comments

Winter wedding in Croatia

Winter wedding in Croatia, organized on a magical location, could turn your most important day into a real winter fairy tale, moreover winter itself creates a unique and unrepeatable coulisse.

WE ADDORE WINTER WEDDINGS! FIND OUT WHY THEY ARE SO MAGICAL.

Winter wedding in Croatia

Most young couples often avoid winter weddings, due to weather (in)conveniences or because of difficulty in staying outdoors, but the biggest reason is the impression that winter weddings are poor in flower decorations.

A winter wedding, organized on a magical location, could turn your most important day into a real winter fairy tale, moreover winter itself creates a unique and unrepeatable coulisse.

Winter wedding in Croatia

Even though many brides will just shake their heads over winter weddings … let me try to undeceive you in thinking that weddings in winter can’t be very special. Winter time is perfectly fit for boho or glamorous weddings, decadent decorations, special materials and textures … It is also time for rustic or simple romantic weddings.

In cold months we love to be cosy and keep warm, also frostiness gives us many ideas and decorations that are perfect just at this time. Velvet, tartan, opaque and rustic shades, as well as the pallet of brown and bronze, or for me always lovely gray colours. Equally wonderful are those classical red-white themes that cloud be perfectly incorporated in your winter wedding.

Winter wedding in Croatia

Winter wedding in Croatia

If you are a true boho girl, your wedding can be arranged in earthy and green shades with touch of luxury including metallic and silver tones. If you are planning a rustic winter wedding, I suggest using earth tones or wood colours with green and red details and also could be very effective to accentuate a dessert table or a bar with hot winter drinks, such as hot chocolate (which you can additionally “spice up” with a bit of rum). Along with many glittering lamps and glamorous floral arrangements, your magical winter wedding would completely enchant your guests. Here we have multitude of elements and textures with which we can play and create real glamorous effects, from paillettes, high glass vases, lots of shiny balls made of small pieces of glass … A floral tree or a floral wall may also be incorporated, as a perfect central decoration, one of the latest trends I have recently had a chance to create on the workshop in New York.

Decorations such as pine cones, holly, mistletoe, red berries, golden sprayed apples, fur or wooden ornaments will perfectly complement any winter wedding. There are also great possibilities when it comes to invitations, the tone and style you choose could be the theme throughout the entire winter wedding. So, the decorations in winter time, despite the fact that you might think there aren’t many variety of flowers, are really grand. Moreover, details from winter wedding can in some cases be even more distinct than summer details. One more reason why we like winter weddings – there are numerous locations that almost look idyllic during winter time. When few snowflakes are added to this whole story, you might start thinking differently about winter weddings.

PRESTON BAILEY WORKSHOP IN NEW YORK

Posted on: November 6th, 2017 by Lela No Comments

Preston Bailey workshop

NEW YORK, NEW YORK... WHAT HAVE I LEARNED ON THIS MAGICAL WORKSHOP

Preston Bailey workshop

A couple of weeks ago, I came back from New York, that wonderful city that’s always thrilled me. I’ve waited some time for my impressions to calm down, but I’m still very impressed with the whole journey and want to share it with you. The Preston Bailey workshop in New York was brilliant and above all incredibly inspirational.
Preston Bailey has been recognized as a genius in the world of floral design. He can completely transform conference halls and different spaces into glamorous installations. He uses flowers as his main medium to create fascinating effects and to delight all the people who have had the opportunity to see his creations. For me his workshop was the opportunity to collaborate with very creative people from all over the world and to hear how my colleagues from Dubai, India, Ghana, the UK, America, Puerto Rico … perform their work.

Preston Bailey workshop

During the Preston Bailey workshop, in three days, we had the opportunity to learn from the experience of his very successful wedding planner for glamorous and exclusive weddings and events with 20 years of work. She shared her work and experience with us, her relationship with the clients, how much she is available for them, what planning phases to use… In fact, I found out a lot of staff to be in common with our studio (only with our maximum dedication and quality we can achieve the top results). The workshop itself was arranged in the way, that apart from lectures, we were also working on very concrete tasks and then we presented them to Preston and the whole world via FB.

I was particularly interested in the design and scenography for events, how to do budgets and some other organizational details. What impressed me the most were the techniques PB team used to create glamorous flower decorations, flower walls, monumental trees with lavish flower branches … There were also large installations for guest tables, designs to construct crystal or flower ceilings in halls, wall installations made of flowers … something completely new and brilliant.

Preston Bailey workshop

Preston Bailey workshop

Preston definitely has his own style and for those who want glamorous and lavish weddings or events in this style, then he is THE BEST. He’s been working around the world for very rich people who can afford his lavish creations. Preston currently lives and works in NY, and just before the start of the workshop he moved his headquarter office to a new address. We had the honour to create some of the installations that would stay forever in his new studio.

The Preston Bailey workshop was really beautiful, inspirational, entertaining and it inspired in me new creative moments. I can’t wait to get the projects where I’ll be able to recreate glamorous installations and let my imagination run wild by playing with new techniques.

Trends, Trends …

New Yorkers adore flowers. They buy flowers together with bread and milk because they are sold everywhere and packed in small bundles. Their style can definitely be characterized as wild, romantic and natural. However, I love New York because of its parks full of flowers. I like this simplicity of thinking and self-indulgent lifestyle when they create from nothing and turn a simple, plain, empty road into a beautiful little park. They do gorgeous gardens in big pots, set around some benches or tables & chairs with a stand with free newspapers and that’s it.

New York, New York … it was wonderful as always.

FLOWER DELIVERY – WHO IS IT FOR

WHERE CAN I SEE AND ORDER LELA DESIGNED FLOWER BOUQUETS

Flower bouquets, arrangements and flower decorations available for purchase could be seen and ordered from our Internet on-line flower shop. The products are sorted by categories, according to the occasions or purpose, that is, flowers for birthdays, flowers for anniversary celebrations, flowers for the birth of a new baby, flowers to decorate your office with, or by the type of products – flowers in the boxes. We are not a flower shop, so in our studio we only keep cut flowers and not the finished bouquets. The flower bouquets will be assembled after you have placed your order and we receive the payment.

ORDERING DEADLINES FOR FLOWER DELIVERY

The orders are received 24/7, but if you make your order on Sunday, your order will be processed on Monday. One day in advance is our preferred way of receiving orders – today’s order to be delivered tomorrow, but we also receive orders for same day deliveries. If it is a same day delivery order, place your order no later than 12.00 and please be flexible when choosing your flowers. For all special requirements (for anything that is not available in our on-line shop, or if you explicitly want specific type of flowers or colours) we kindly ask you to make your order 3 days before the desired delivery day. We work miracles, but we need to have enough time for preparation and delivery.

WHAT IS WRITTEN IN SMALL LETTERS WITH EVERY BOUQUET?

If on a delivery day we do not have or could not get flowers for your selected bouquet from the on-line flower shop, we will replace unattainable flowers with some other flowers. The delivered bouquet of flowers, by its composition, may differ from the one on the picture, but the difference will not affect the quality or aesthetic characteristics of the bouquet. Due to cherishing long-term and mutually respectful relationships with our customers we would like you to be satisfied with our products. The Lela Design studio guarantees the same value replacements for temporarily unavailable flowers.

ABOUT PROCUREMENT

Our offer depends on the current offer on the flower market. Flowers and flowers prices, as well as the prices of fruits and vegetables, depend on supply and demand and vary depending on the season. We daily procure flowers and this is done by Lela herself. We do not compromise when the quality or aesthetic value of our products are in question, so we only work with top quality materials. We do not take orders that we could not deliver.

A LITTLE BIT MORE FOR THOSE STILL IN DOUBT

If browsing our on-line flower shop still haven’t given you the impression on the way we work, please browse through other services galleries.
Lela Designed products are top quality unique floral decorations where flowers have the dominant role, and not the additional greenery. All the products in the on-line flower shop are hand made by us, and pictured recently. Our on-line shop has been regularly updated with new products.

We hope that you will use our Flower Delivery service and make important moments more beautiful for yourself and your loved ones.

RUSTIC WEDDINGS UNDER THE TENT

Posted on: March 19th, 2017 by Lela No Comments

Rustic weddings under the tent

Rustic weddings under the tent have definitely marked the year 2017. On the last wedding fair, we have presented a tent design with brown wooden floor and a see-through roof tarpaulin, instead of already seen white baldachins.

Rustic weddings under the tent. Rustic style has been a total hit this season and it inspired us to do this design. Luxurious garlands made out of olive branches, laurel and ivy were hanging under the see-through roof tarpaulin, decorating the wooden tables. In the center of our tent, we’ve put a dessert table with carefully chosen desserts, also following the rustic style – cakes were decorated with olive branches, pastry was decorated with lavander and berries, whereas the jute, which fitted perfectly with the rest of the decorations, was tied around the bagels with a regular string…

Instead of using normal cocktail tables, we decided to use barrels, which additionally accentuated the relaxed atmosphere we created. The lighting was totally natural and little light bulbs were hanging from the ceiling, stranded on a plain black cable. Rustic weddings under the tentRustic weddings under the tent

I have been thinking about this tent design for a while now, so I would like to use this opportunity to sincerely thank my partners who contributed to this design with their skills and knowledge and coverted my ideas into reality.

WEDDING IN ISTRIA

Posted on: March 11th, 2017 by MIRELA LELA MIKŠIĆ No Comments

Stancija Meneghetti is a perfect backdrop for a garden wedding. Kristina and Dominique wanted to have a wedding in Istria in one of the most beautiful stone houses near Rovinj. They imagined a wedding ceremony in the open air, under the trees and a gala dinner with the smell of grapes from vineyards with superb gourmet cuisine.

Villa provided us with the perfect setting for the sophisticated garden wedding in vintage style. The guests came from all over the world and everything was supposed to be elegant, but with a sense of casualness and pleasant entertainment.

 

We decided to use long tables that were set in the lawn by the pool and decorate them with white hydrangeas and pastel roses in silver and gold and glass vases with branches of lavender, rosemary and olive trees. Every guest was welcomed with a personalized detail on a napkin – menu with a small wreath of rosemary twigs with his name. Above the tables we envisioned bulbs that gave a wonderful warm ambience and the pool implemented beautifully our wooden gray lanterns.

The ambiance was magical, the guests brought a warm cozy atmosphere and they danced until the early morning hours. The entire evening, Kristina and Dominique were truly relaxed and enjoyed with their friends because all the details and protocols have been looked after by our coordinator.

 

Dear K&D, we hope to see you when your travels take you to our country!

WEDDING INVITATIONS

Posted on: March 10th, 2017 by Lela No Comments

Whether you celebrate your wedding with the closest circle of friends or you decide to have a large celebration, you will need to send wedding invitations. After the invitations are sent, the excitement can start for both the guests and the newlyweds…

 

It is possible that your guests have already heard that a wedding is imminent, but only when they receive their invitation they will know that they are invited and to what kind of a celebration they are invited. Both newlyweds and guests are preparing for the wedding, so the wedding bon ton dictates that wedding invitations have to contain all important information about the day, time and place of the wedding ceremony and gala dinner. In addition to basic information, if you wish  or feel it is very important to you, the invitations can include additional information (the dress code, contact for arrival confirmation, the restaurant website, a link to a folder, etc.).

 

However, a good wedding invitations, with their appearance – graphic design, writing style, quality of paper or color printing and other, describe the upcoming celebration. This is especially important if you are organizing a modern wedding or non-traditional celebration of something that your guests are not expecting. With good wedding invitations, newlyweds will be spared of unnecessary questions and they will avoid misunderstandings and discomfort.

 

Lela Design has plenty of experience with invitations. We know which are the best practices and terms of sending invitations. Also, we have a data base of different texts for invitations, written in several different styles. Besides having the best selection of top quality invitation, we cherish an individual approach, so we know where and how to design your wedding personalized logos – initials, emblems and even entire invitations, all adapted to the style of your wedding.

 

In our Studio, you can view the best of the best – the most beautiful wedding invitations that are available on the Croatian market. We know the designers and printers who can fulfill your every desire and idea. In addition to wedding invitations, we can offer you other printed material, which can be styled in compliance with all the other wedding elements, within your set budget.

Ten tips for making your own Christmas decorations at home:

 

1. Dry cakes, gingerbread  and various biscuits are always welcome on the holiday table. Place them on tier trays and platters and complete your decoration by adding cinnamon sticks, lime, oranges, figs or just place some baubles…

2. Candles! Use a looooot…However, always be careful about the flames. It is best if they are in protected containers or candleholders. Also, take into consideration that wax can drain down the candles of lower quality or after they have been burning for a longer period.

3. Check the bowls, vases and baskets that you might have at home. I always advise the clients to bring me their own containers or vases they especially cherish or the ones that match the desired style for the decorations.

4. Old and interesting materials can be adjusted in colour. For example, if you have a golden angel and all your decorations are in white and silver, just buy a can of white spray, apply it to the angel and place it as a decoration on a napkin or in the bread basket.

5. If you prefer shabby style, nothing can be done easier – buy some white colouring and transform all the decorations into white pieces.

6. Choose the colour of the decorations that will match your apartment and stick to it. If you are not much of a designer, choose only two colours, and if your apartment decoration has already been overdone colour wise – stick to only one colour. You can always experiment with different tones of the chosen colour and add some silver to the story.

7. Try to take the tablecloth into consideration as well when you set up the table. It should be in harmony with the decorations. If you are not sure, choose white, beige, grey or any other neutral colour and try to match the tone of the topper to the tablecloth, avoid using contrasting colours.

8. Your table will always look nice if you add a couple of details on the napkins. Usually, such details can be made from already existing decorative items. Make a bundle of cinnamon sticks by tying them together with a red plush ribbon and place them on a folded napkin on the plate.

9. Fresh flowers are always desirable on a festive table. Buy some roses or ranunculus and place one or two in several smaller vases. The shorter the stem – the longer the flowers will last.

10. Short decorations should not be taller than 30 cm so they don’t disturb the communication at the table.

Posted on: September 15th, 2016 by MIRELA LELA MIKŠIĆ No Comments

Wedding on Ana Jelusic and Travis

Wedding on Ana Jelusic and Travis – each and every client is special in their own way. Some know exactly what they want, some have nothing in mind at the beginning of our colaboration. Their levels of demands vary, as well as the scope of items desired for their weddings. As the proverb says: “To each their own. “

Wedding on Ana Jelusic and Travis

From the first moment Ana and Travis entered our studio, we knew that their story will be special. We named the project “Love is in the air” because that is what we immediately felt.

After the initial conversation that included a presentation and our suggestions, they let us create their own wedding story. It is a special pleasure to work with clients who give us a lot of creative freedom, have trust in our professional judgments and are ready to consider our suggestions and proposals.

Wedding on Ana Jelusic and Travis

We decided that the flowers should definitely be white, airy and fluffy, creating elegance and sophistication. Our aim was to paint a picture of fresh mountains, air, love, spontaneity and simplicity with our selection of flowers and rich inventory.

Wedding on Ana Jelusic and Travis

We used gentle gypsophila flowers, white hydrangeas that looked like snowy baubles, white lisianthus flowers that represented meadow flowers, white carnations that symbolically represent pure love and happiness and, finally, white simphora berries that bravely defied the Triestine bora wind, dangling peacefully despite the strong wind. The picture that our choices painted was one of a beautiful snow cover, contrasting the cold and grey stone. Our chosen inventory maintained purity and simplicity. We chose only transparent glass in different shapes and sizes, small golden chalices and various candleholders – in total, 273 glass vases and 352 candles in candleholders and lanterns. The tables were 8 meters long and decorated with rounded compositions of vases, flowers and hundreds of candles.

“The smile on Ana’s face as she came for her wedding bouquet confirmed that we had fulfilled our task properly. You can see the image gallery here.

Thank you, Ana and Travis, for your endless trust!”

Metal décors will blend in beautifully within any style, whether it is rustic, modern or glamorous. Mix silver, bronze and gold hues to add more aesthetic value and elegance to the space.

SOOTHING TONES

The palette of colours present in this year’s wedding designs is a combination of two nuances – blushy red and gentle pastel blue. You will surely see much of these colours. I advise matching these tones to white, grey, silver or golden tones.

WILD AND FREE FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS

Wedding bouquets in classic Biedermeier style has become completely out-of-date. Excessive symmetry has been seen to many times. A much more casual style with an abundance of various greenery has finally made its return. A special trend this year are seemingly unconventional plants, such as cultivated carrot.

HANGING DECORATIONS

If your wedding venue has high ceilings, you can use the empty vertical space to introduce decorative items such as pompoms, lanterns, flags, lights, flower decorations and so much more. Additional lighting will enliven the space and the decorative elements will make the space fresher and more colourful.

SEASONAL FLAVOURS

Adjust your menus to the local offer of ingredients. By adding seasonal items, you will achieve sensational flavours. Smaller portions of food in several courses are the key of keeping the energy during the night high, and a creative menu that steps out of the ordinary shall additionally intrigue your guests.

SWEET LITTLE TREATS

After years and years of wedding cakes and various desserts being served directly to the guests’ tables, serving them on separate dessert tables has become increasingly popular. Blend sweet delicacies into the space by adding colourful textiles, adding a couple of candles and decorative vases. That way, your guests can enjoy the desserts all night long, and the space will be get an additional scenographic element.

FROM THE MARKET TO THE BOUQUET

Posted on: November 25th, 2015 by MIRELA LELA MIKŠIĆ No Comments

Flowers webshop and delivery of flowers in Croatia

Flowers webshop and delivery of flowers in Croatia.  received a beautiful bouquet of flowers as a gift, you’ve put it in a vase and now you are enjoying just watching it.

Do you ever wonder how it was made, who made it and how much time and effort has gone into its making?

This short story will introduce you to the process of making bouquets, starting from the very purchase of flowers to the final packaging process. Our day begins with a visit to a wholesale flower supplier because I want to personally inspect the ordered flowers and choose new sorts. The emphasis is put on the flower sorts of the highest quality and freshness, where my experience and excellent cooperation with the suppliers and growers come in handy.

After the morning adventure, flowers are delivered to the workshop, where each flower and stem passes through the expert hands of my florists. Flowers are cleaned from extra leaves and thorns are removed from the roses. A cut 2 cm long is incised into the stem so that it can absorb water more easily. The water must be cold and clean so that the flowers would last as long as possible. It is not advisable to add sugar or aspirin because they close stem pores and that way flowers wilt quicker.

Flowers are additionally keep in refrigerators in order to keep them fresh and the flowers closed. From the moment of picking them up on the market, all the way to their last use, it is best for the flowers to reside in specialized refrigerators and at certain temperatures to slow down the aging process and allow the end user to enjoy their scent, freshness and beauty for as long as possible.

Next in line is the paperwork – sometimes it lasts for a couple of hours. We need to count all flowers and plants, write the numbers down, determine the codes, set the prices and so on, but we will not continue talking about that because we prefer flowers, creativity and making decorations. So, to conclude, when making bouquets design, composition, colour and mathematics are all equally important. How is a bouquet made? By harmonizing flower types in regard to their forms, colours and durability, considering the given theme or occasion and making sure the process stays within the budget. The style and the method of composing the bouquet depends on the occasion, sorts of flowers, customer’s request, as well as on the current inspiration of the florist.

HOWEVER, THERE ARE TECHNICAL RULES THAT EVERY FLORIST MUST HOLD ON TO. THE TECHNICAL SIDE OF CREATING BOUQUETS AND ARRANGEMENTS IS LEARNED FOR YEARS, AND THE EXPERIENCE OF WORKING WITH FLOWERS IS VERY IMPORTANT.  HOWEVER, MY OPINION IS THAT WHAT CARRIES THE MOST IMPORTANCE IS OUR LOVE FOR FLOWERS!

Once finished, a bouquet is wrapped, or as I like to put it, tucked in abundantly in fine silk paper and decorated with grosgrain ribbon or a glorious bow.

Flower arrangements and installations in vases are placed in Lela Design boxes, custom-made based on our design and are again lavishly tucked in fine silk paper and decorated with grosgrain ribbon.

Floral decorations in boxes were designed for situations when the recipient does not have a vase available at the moment of receiving the flowers.  A water-soaked sponge is put into a box measuring 12x12x12 cm in order to keep freshness for a long time. I shall reveal a small secret to you – flowers treated this way last longer than a bouquet because the stems are shorter and the flowers can soak water better and more easily.

Our product – flowers in a box – come in white Lela Design boxes measuring 63x16x10 cm. They are also wrapped in fine silk paper and decorated with grosgrain ribbon. This product is meant for persons who desire to do their own arrangements.

If you wish, we can send a personalized note along with the chosen bouquet or decoration with the delivery.

And finally, a smile for our client is the final touch, with which we hand them our handwork , made with lots of attention and love.
