Hi, I'm Jennifer, owner and lead designer at Petals a floral design firm in Boulder, Colorado.  Along with my husband and two children, I  grow my own organic blooms using the greenest and most sustainable processes available.  

This blog is where I explore topics from floral design, wedding planning, organic farming and gardening, sustainable living, and our family's quest to find the perfect farm! 

I'm so glad you are here!

What's Growing On.....100% of these flowers were grown in Boulder, CO...BY US!


The summer is positively flying by! Given that its garden season, I've spent far more time outdoors than behind my computer (#goals)! I have also been prepping for two new workshops coming up that I am SUPER excite for! Here is the link:

Both workshops will be held in our sunny and plant filled design studio and include all materials and instructions to make a sunning flower arrangement. I'm excited this go around to offer TWO different event times: a" happy hour" on Saturday night and a "mimosa morning" on Sunday. With all the fantastic blooms the garden is pumping out, this is SURE to be a great series of events. I'm also SUPER excited because we finally replaced th garden gate with a larger gate that will allow us to get the flower cart in the back yard so it can be a part of the events!











We put a new, bigger gate leading into the back garden so our adorable flower cart can make an appearance at the workshops! Seriously, imagine a magical summer evening (or morning) spent with friends, selecting garden-grown flowers from the flower cart and designing your very own masterpiece to take home, all while sipping a cool drink... Now make that fantasy a reality by reserving your spot at the next workshop--I'd love to see you there!








Here are some fun collages I've made of the thing's

we've been harvesting from the garden over the last 2.5 months.

Ours is defiantly a May and August Garden so in many ways, the best is yet to come!
