With the Summer sun in full force we have the opportunity to fully support Chicagoland’s natural flower farms. Our local growers deliver the freshest summer flowers in bright and abundant colors! We take pride of not only having beautiful unique flowers in our bouquets, but also supporting our natural local partners whenever possible. Take a look below at what they brought us this week!



Picking from our favorite local fresh flowers, Christine Noelle put together this bridal, garden bouquet– perfect for any casual Summer Wedding! 

Happy Summer!





Ally and Ben’s Chicago wedding was filled with love, happiness and peonies! The Dilly Lily had a great time designing and delivering the urban-rustic inspired florals for this fun and elegant wedding at Loft on Lake!

AllyBen-0919Following the wedding trends, Ally chose burlap table runners, mercury vases with soft and romantic vintage florals as her theme.


A lifetime of happiness to the happy couple!

We had a wonderful time working with everyone that made Ali and Ben’s special day perfect!

Dilly Lily was invited to style the florals for his years Glossed&Found’s bridal brunch, and what a charming brunch it was!

_L3A5299A white ceramic spiked vase was the perfect modern vessel to hold a bundle of white hydrangea, ivy, mimosa, and yellow poppies. The perfect arrangement to look at while sipping your afternoon tea!

Our Venue was the chic and delicious Boarding House in Chicago. And Dilly Lily arranged all the gorgeous flowers in these one-of-a-kind wine bottle containers dreamed up by Loreen! They were very cool!

Invitation by Nico & LaLa

All the invitations and paper products were custom designed by the dynamic duo at Nico & Lala


Our flowers finished the tables and set the perfect romantic tone. They were a wonderful blanc d’ blanc combination of hydrangeas, garden roses, succulents and phalaenopsis orchids! And we accented the tables with mercury votives in mixed metals- golds, silvers, and bronze-  a great current wedding trend! Our overall style was luxe and lush!
The talented Loreen was at it once again and handmade this monogramed table runner! It was the perfect touch!
Our sweets sections included the fanciful chocolates by Veruca Chocolates and Elysia Root Cakes designed the monogram cake!
The whole event came to life once these guys arrived! Dressed by JCrew and Bella Bridesmaid, their natural beauty was enhanced with hair and make-up by Nika Vaughan of Bridal Artists.  Our models: Julia Clark, Jordan Labinger (Bride & Groom) Hillary Kett, Clay Hamilton, Mel Wilson & Dan Wilson.
I loved our Whisky, Bourbon and Rye bar for the guys and those pennant stir sticks by Nico & LaLa are adorable! Here we added the strings of pearls to the centerpieces- it was a great addition!
Cheers! xo
Once again – the talented team!

All dressed up with So Dressed Up! at RM

This past weekend was all about our wedding at RM Champagne Salon for two our favorite Grooms – Graham and Fran! The tables were set with candelabras and family heirloom silver trophies filled with a mix of woodland ferns for a dressed up bohemian evening. Apparel designer Elise Bergman enhanced the scene with her custom yellow pennants that criss crossed the outdoor patio evening sky. And all the details were seamlessly coordinated by Katie of So Dressed Up events; including all the guests arriving by Rickshaw!  We cannot wait to see the real pictures….coming soon!

Congratulations to Nikki and Brett June 22, 2013

Fleurotica 2013 was an amazing experience for all of us at Dilly Lily and Christine Noelle Design.  We are so honored to be among the top 30 floral designers in Chicago.  The creative talent was jaw dropping and inspiring.

Our designers, Christine Noelle, Kelly Decker, Eric Phillips and Brittney Kee were greatly inspired by the artwork currently posted at the MCA.  As you can see in the pictures below, there is a strong juxtaposition between the two intricate garments .  Unrest (first image below) was inspired by Jason Lazarus’s Phase I/Live Archive, while the the lighter garment Concordia “with one heart” (last image below) strived to depict the serenity of an ideal, yet mythical, utopian society. 

Thank you Chicago Racked for the following beautiful images!
To hear and see more about this fashionable event, check out  Margaret O’Connors article in “i on the scene“. She was there mingling with all the chic and trendsetting supporters of the Garfield Park Conservatory and has captured the glamorous side of life.

Thank you again to both the MCA for hosting this amazing event, and to the Garfield Park Conservatory for allowing a platform for us to be creative on.  We would also like to give a nod to Scarlet Pedal’s designer Sarah Anderson for creating the winning look “Mucha in the Fern Room!” 



See everyone at Fleurotica 2014!

Thank you to the The Garfield Conservatory for providing their benefits, and to Museum of Contemporary Art.
