Hey there, we are Wood Violet, an eco-friendly floral design studio in Milwaukee. Our style has been described as loose and natural, garden-y, a little messy, lush and bountiful. We are not a fans of rules or convention and our aesthetic reflects that. Our preferred medium is locally grown flowers and foliage but we'll get stuff from other parts of the country, or Canada if we have to :)
Holiday workshops/open houses. November through December.
Build your own adorable pumpkin centerpiece for Thanksgiving (or have us make it for you!) We’ll have the pumpkins carved out and ready to go!
Tuesday Nov 20 open studio 3:00-7:00pm.
Wednesday Nov 21 open studio 1:00-4:00pm.

open house for shopping
We will be hosting the James Steeno Gallery for a pop up shopping event in our shared studio space along with Blue Whale Quilt Studio. Not sure on the hours yet but it will probably be Friday-Sunday right before Christmas.
Weddings take up most of our time. So if that's what you are here for... check out the wedding page. There's a bunch more info for you there. Maybe you want to get a feel for our style? Head on over the the gallery page.
deliveries and pick ups
We would love to make bouquets for special occasions. We do not keep "regular" retail hours like a "normal" flower shop but, with a little notice, we can probably work something out.
We are always up up for something fun like a baby shower or photo shoot. We also like to squeeze in a few workshops in the studio. Oh, and we offer a summer bouquet subscription.
