Calluna Community | Cocktails with Plum Sage Flowers
Friday, May 31
Here at Calluna we are always looking for new ways to highlight and honor some of the amazing creative partners we get to work with. We feel incredibly fortunate to work with some seriously talented vendors in the industry, and we want to show them off to you in our new Calluna Community Series! We will sit down with some of the fabulous vendors of Colorado and get to know about them, their business and what life is like behind the scenes. Stay tuned for more!
This week for Calluna Community we caught up with Erin at Plum Sage Flowers! Plum Sage is located in Denver and will travel throughout the state and beyond to accommodate floral needs; and they create stunning flower arrangements for weddings, holidays, special events, and beyond!
Cheers! Xo, Calluna
Describe what you do!
Plum Sage creates flower arrangements for weddings, holidays, special events, weekly or everyday occasions. We are a design studio in the West Wash Park neighborhood of Denver. We offer customized orders for events and occasions as well as flower subscriptions, design classes and parties in our space.
What is your idea of a dream project?
I personally am inspired by art, fashion, architecture and nature. An ideal project for me includes enhancing an already unique space, such as a unique backyard with an ornate garden. Creating beauty that looks as if it could grow out of the ground in an already flourishing environment would be delightful. Letting the environment shape the design would be fun.
What has been your favorite event that you have worked, or attended?
For my 40th birthday, I hired a second line to surprise my guests at The Kitchen downtown. We formed a parade and they played while we danced our way through downtown Denver. We then welcomed passerbys into a dance party in front of Union Station. It was an amazing way to enter a new decade!
What does your morning routine look like?
My lab Wesley wakes me up by 6 AM with a lick or a nose rub as he loves an early breakfast. I immediately make a latte and what happens next depends upon my kiddos. I am either packing a lunch or organizing backpacks, sneaking in a few emails, heading to a workout or just sitting at the kitchen table with one of them on my lap while they wake up. My kids like a soft start up where as I hit the ground running.
What are some of your favorite trends that you are seeing?
Patterned, bold linens as well as the use of potted plants or simply the use of unique plant foliage in arrangements as a focal greenery.
What advice would you give to a younger you?
Be vulnerable, honest and kind. I did my best to be honest and kind but didn’t always have the courage to be vulnerable.
What makes you excited to go to work in the morning?
I love coming to our charming studio and I love working with unique, beautiful product that changes by the week.
What is your favorite cocktail, or what are you drinking tonight?
It changes by the season, but I love a good French Rose or Clase Azul tequila, soda and a splash of citrus.
