A candlelit party
When you have a location like Castello di Vincigliata on the hills of Fiesole – a few kilometers from Florence – create a set for a party, turns into a real event.
This is what we did for Erin Quinlan Quiros, the creator of Casa Q, a consulting firm for interior design and home entertainment.
She has been living in Florence for some years and she has asked our team to organize her party. We were inspired by the castle and by the large windows that dialogue with the outside.
The atmosphere had to be inspired by the fairy light of the candles so we created large candelabras with branches, flowers and small glass bubbles where we placed the little candles, a motif then taken up for the table and in the various corners of the location.
A perfect mix that transformed the evening into an enchanted fairytale.

We are waiting for you in Florence, in Via Santo Spirito to welcome you in our “wunderkammer” and to wish you … Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
It’s always the right month for a special wedding!
Excuse us for this long break from the blog but our summer was dense with parties, weddings and special events to be followed in Italy and abroad.
We have finally come back to tell you how certain event’s set can become inspirations for your wedding, perhaps for next September, one of the most chosen months for the big event.
So many reasons: the days are still long enough and the temperatures are pleasant. Everything is perfect if you decide to schedule an outdoor party like the one we show you where a beautiful floral “arc de triomphe” has characterized the whole project.
But the inspiration can be many, in September, the trees begin to change color by preparing for the beautiful autumn shades, let yourself be inspired by the september’s colors: give up the bright summer tones and take a look at the more delicate ones of the new season. And then say yes to hot oranges, tasty chocolate, green forest and red berries colors!
This is the right time to wish you a good holiday, Fiorile for the whole month of August will be closed but we will always work to organize weddings and think of the decor of many dinners that this season are organized in the wonderful gardens of the Tuscan countryside.
Having the fortune to own a garden like the one you see in this photo is the best opportunity to organize a summer party, a dinner for friends, a special birthday, an anniversary. Ideas to decorate the garden and turn it into an extraordinary location for your summer parties are endless.
Remember, whatever it is, it’s best to organize everything with style and good taste, because it is always great to surprise the guests! For this occasion we thought of a very “cool” style, a single table with a mise en place very chic, choosing as a decor a mix of flowers and fruits, such as the strawberries chosen to fill these little pots.
The purple of hydrangeas seemed to us a perfect match to harmonize with the red strawberries. We give you this little corner of paradise to wish you a wonderful vacation, not forgetting that in September we are waiting for you in the shop in Florence to introduce you the latest floral news!
We have something in our heads!
We like to discover around the world, different accessories for home decor and special items to create layouts. From Sicily we have brought the famous “teste di moro” of Caltagirone, the real works of art known for their glittering and intense colors.
Symbol of Sicilian excellence, have become an icon and source of inspiration in fashion. But how to use them to avoid the ceramic museum effect? Certainly the “teste di moro”, available in women and men versions, do not go unnoticed: they have a very extravagant character, rich in details that recall Sicily’s ancient splendor.
First of all, you can use them in the “traditional way” to hold green plants or branches of any kind! In the world of home decor have become real design objects, they give a touch of romance, especially if we fill them with fresh flowers.
The most famous is the colorful version, one that you can find from Fiorile in Florence, perfect as scenic elements for important events such as weddings or hotel lounges setting up.
Costa al Mandorlo Rooms with views on Tuscany
Poppiano is a small village near Montespertoli, few kilometers from Florence. It is here that Sandra Ceni has decided to create Costa al Mandorlo, a sophisticated mansion of charm.
A place to welcome those who love intact, authentic and beautiful panoramas, outside the mass tourism itineraries, Costa al Mandorlo – as its name suggests – is immersed in an atmosphere that smells of the trees and flowers that Sandra chose for this new project.
Few elegant and romantic rooms, all thanks to the sophistication of the materials and decorations chosen in the shabby chic style that distinguishes Sandra’s style, with frames and beds reclaimed by antiquarians or on the brocante market that has always frequented, then interpreted with the colors of Fiorile, its floral design shop in Florence.
A small veranda for summer breakfast on the garden and an open space for small events complete Costa al Mandorlo, a charming location that offers guests an authentic experience of “Tuscan way of life”.
