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!

The Arboretum Design Studio - Grand Opening!

Updated: Sep 25, 2019



Last weekend we celebrated the grand opening of our design studio: The Arboretum. For years this space has served as a heated growing space for our dahlia starts, bougainvillea, and fruit trees.







Over the last year we have updated the space with a lofted ceiling featuring sky lights and a 15 ft sliding door for better climate control and to bring more light into the space. We are now super excited to offer small group workshops and events in this enchanting space! So far we have bookings for a seed starting workshop, a birthday, and a team building event!!!


The space is also well suited for bachelorette parties, bridal showers, and birthday parties.










For our grand opening we hosted a flower arranging workshop. Our feline design specialist, Link , even joined the celebration.


The Arboretum Design Space is perfect for groups up to ten and in warmer weather larger groups can spill out into the garden towards the greenhouse.


We can arrange as much or as little of the event as you like from simply supplying the stunning location to planning every little detail.










The diversity of arrangements our workshop participants created last week was inspiring. From architectural and tropical, to billowy and romantic, each participant's personalities shone through their unique designs!


Some of the blooms we played with at this workshop included:


* Yellow and White Freesia

* Rice and Wax Flowers

* Mums and Carnations

* Green Cabbage Roses

* Coral Garden Roses

* Purple Scabiosa









We would love to host your next event! Contact us for details.
