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! 

Jennifer

New Year, New Name!

Updated: Dec 30, 2019


Petals, Boulder


After a fantastic inaugural year, we are excited to start the roaring 20s with a new name!   While the name Petals By Pedal was born out of a love of puns and too many early mornings spent reading Dr. Seuss to our two young children, it also led to a lot of explaining, spelling, and repeating.  In our ever evolving attempts to simplify, we have decided to become Petals, Boulder.  


You can still find us at PetalsByPedalBoulder.com and corresponding email but you can also now find us at PetalsBoulder.com and PetalsBoulder@gmail.com, we are also now #petalsboulder on Instagram.  We are working on a new logo and streamlining our website.  We still offer stunning flower arrangements and flower subscriptions, fun floral workshops, and one-of-a-kind event design.



Last year was an exhilarating learning experience for us as a new business and helped to highlight what it is that we most love about floristry:  growing and sharing our organic blooms, educating our community about sustainable floristry & gardening practices, and creating beautiful, blooming spaces for all of your special events.



  In 2020 we are doubling down on our commitment to these passions.   In practical terms this means we are excited to bring elevated floral design to each and every arrangement we have the privilege of producing. We are happy to announce monthly floral workshops--our first one is in February! And we will be expanding our blog with more growing & design specific articles.





Make 2020 a Year of Flowers

Did you know that Denmark, consistently ranked as the happiest nation,

spends the largest amount per capita on fresh flowers?

Guess who spends the least? Americans!

If flowers = happiness,

(and we honestly believe they do)

we are here to help!


As 2019 comes to a close and 2020 sets in, we begin planning new routines & setting goals. While many of us jump into each new year with fitness goals, past experiences dictate that a lot of well meant gym memberships go unused after Valentine's Day. While I cannot guarantee you success in all of your New Year's Resolutions, I can guarantee you a year full of flowers! What better way to start a new decade than by committing to more flowers in 2020? Check out our flower subscriptions and bring flowers into your everyday life; we promise they will make you smile well beyond February, without requiring a single plank or squat.



February Floral Workshop:

Flower Crowns

In February we are taking Valentine's Day back from the couples! Grab your best friend, mother, daughter, neighbor, or partner-in-crime and join us for a pre-V-day floral workshop crafting flower crowns. Saturday February 8th we will be hosting two sessions where you can learn how to make your very own flower crown while noshing on rose themed refreshments. Our morning session runs 10-12 and the evening session runs 4-6 for a perfect pre-dinner activity.



Whatever 2020 hold for you, we wish you a blooming good year!
