Summer is sizzling! Boulder reached 99* yesterday, and summer is just beginning. If you can bare the warm weather, take a hike along the Flatirons or by Wonderland Lake, where wanderers are treated to trails dotted with a variety of cactus and succulents.
Succulents have maintained a trend for the bride seeking an earthy, hearty wedding style. Whether accenting blue eryngium and yellow spray roses or holding together an earthy, fresh green and crisp white bouquet with willow, the succulent’s versatility is always apparent and encourages creativity for our designers.
Here in the shop, we like to also offer those arid dwellers as an alternative to the standard floral design, and man are they popular! Our Succulent Gardens come complete with five different size and types of cactus and succulents planted in a locally made barn wood box. These designs are easy to care for and always look awesome, making a great summertime gift on these sizzling days.
