Sneak Peak...

My amazing Fauzeen (Q Studio International & Lifestyle Photography) did the photo shoot today of one of my table scapes for the Open House. We wanted to put up a 3' x 4' canvas piece on the wall in the showroom, so here's a sneak peak of what's going to be at the Open House...

Grand Opening of the New Location!

Almost seven years ago, I started Petit Fleur Event Flowers & Decor out my home in downtown West Dearborn. I envisioned a small, simple and intimate company where I could work with clients one on one. I really wanted nothing to do with the bustle of a full floral company. I adore pretty things. I am a girl's girl through and through so weddings were my passion.

As we have grown, it has been a real challenge having a warehouse to house all of my inventory, a pretty showroom as a creative playground for inspiring and designing amazing events and a functional production space for my designers and I to create our works of art all under one roof.

Aali & Fauzeen Qureshi - Q Studio International & Lifestyle Photographers are now in-house with me in our amazing storefront. I am so blessed to be working with them. They are fast becoming true friends. To have an amazingly talented pair of photographers in my space now to archive my growth...what more can I say?

In the short time since I opened in downtown Royal Oak, we have once again out grown our retail space. I am so excited to announce that April 1st, we will open our expansive floral & event design studio and showroom. I am thrilled to say with the size of our new storefront we are able to have full ceremony set ups including an Indian Mandap set up along with our full reception mock ups with full scale tables and chairs set for eight decked out to the nines with our own CUSTOM-MADE specialty linens, chair covers, chiavari chairs, place settings, special lighting and our unique centerpiece ideas sure to inspire every client.

With in house event coordinators, photographers, floral designers and now a baker, we are catering to the most effective way to enjoy planning your event with flawless and effortless details, all under one roof.

Our Grand Opening is this Thursday night, April 1st from 7:00 - 9:30. We have well over 200 people who have RSVP'd and they are still rolling in. We are doing 5 tables with full fresh floral design in 5 different themes. We are doing a covered cocktail area, custom lighting and so much more... Thank you for your continued support as of course I couldn't have this without all of you... See you Thursday night for some inspiration, passed hor devoures, french macaroon's, martini's and champagne.

What's new?? Pinwheel Bakery!!

Well hello there! I have been a terrible blogger this past month. As most of you know we have been renovating our new storefront in downtown Ferndale. We have been wallpapering, hard wood flooring, electrical wiring and of course city halling... After getting all my "I's" dotted and "T's" crossed with the city for our Grand Opening, I am so proud so say, Let the fun begin!! Our signage was approved, passed all our inspections and painted the building. Our neighbors are great! We have already made a lot of friends. I am in love with Pinwheel Bakery at 220 West Nine Mile in downtown Ferndale.

Ann, owner of Pinwheel Bakery brought in some AMAZING shortbread cookies in an array of flavors and her "to die for" French Macaroons to welcome us to the 'hood. Pinwheel Bakery is one of a VERY FEW bakeries in the Metro Detroit Area that makes French Macaroons from SCRATCH and the right way! Not to mention the way they taste....

She does fabulous wedding cakes and cupcakes, one of her flavor combinations for her cakes is Chardonnay Cake and Raspberry Mousee Filling...mmmm!! Ann will be doing our sweets table for the Open House on Thursday night! So make sure you stop by to try her cupcakes and Macaroons!

Pinwheel Bakery offers everything from wedding cakes to grilled Panini Sandwiches. Word on the street is their Turkey Havarti Panini is AMAZING! So, THANKS Pinwheel Bakery for welcoming us to the neighborhood and of course helping us celebrate our Grand Opening!
