Plum Sage Flowers :: 10 Year Anniversary

We had the joy of having a small helping hand in planning Plum Sage Flowers’ 10 year anniversary! We have had a long working relationship with Erin and her wonderful company. We always feel so honored when members of the community reach out to us to help plan such a huge mile stone – needless to say, the party was a huge success!

The lovely block party was held on a Sunday afternoon complete with scrumptious tacos from Comida food truck, ice cream from Little Man Ice Cream, thirst-quenching refreshments from Peak Beverage, a delectable cupcake garden from Wooden Spoon Cafe and Bakery, music from Rocky Mtn BluegrassParty Singers – to keep everyone there and dancing all night long, and of course the lovely Lana from Lana’s Shop created the sweetest custom invite. It was certainly a party to remember and we can’t wait for more years to come with Erin and her creative team! xx, Calluna

A note from Ashley:

I’m thrilled to be apart of Calluna’s 10th Anniversary Party to celebrate the milestones and successes they have worked so hard for over the years. As a Boulder based photographer, Heather Dwight and team have been a source of inspiration and are lead visionaries in the Colorado (and beyond!) wedding & event community. I cannot wait to reunite with Colorado’s best wedding vendors on April 10th and to photograph all the Marie Antoinette inspired costumes. You can find me in the tall pink wig with a camera in hand at the party!

From the fabulous Cindy Ollig, Owner of 19 years:

The Perfect Petal has always loved working with the dynamic talent that is Calluna. When I think back on the dreamy sun-kissed site visits with Heather Dwight and recently, with Jolene Peterson, I have the most marvelous memories of sketching out ceremony locations, brainstorming interesting visual surprises for guests and getting to know the most delightful and intriguing Calluna brides. I loved walking the grounds of Tess Pace’s family land, plotting where to hang lanterns and floating paper balls from 200 year old cottonwoods. How magical it was to tease out the perfect stems and containers to compliment Cord and Kelly’s Ice and Fire wedding by the bonfire in the meadow East of town. I loved the dramatic  lavender and mauve ombre flower aisle hedges that Heather and Katherine Lawrence designed on the bride’s ranch a couple of years ago and no Petal will soon forget the epic winter extravaganza at The St Regis this past January with 1000 stems of white blooming quince. Jolene’s cool head was something to see. Thank  you for letting us take care of your brides and for trusting us to create new and exciting decor for them.

Who isn’t inspired by the elegance and luxury of the “Marie Antoinette era?” I was originally inspired by a jaw-dropping floral arrangement I saw from Utah-based florist, Tinge Floral. The model was wearing a stunning avant garde gown and had very nude + pale makeup and BIG hair that was so Marie Antoinette. While she certainly wasn’t admired by many at the time, Marie Antoinette surrounded herself with beauty – beautiful clothes, beautiful flowers, beautiful food and drink, beautiful furniture etc. I was inspired by her love of beautiful things and thought it was the perfect theme to carry into a wedding and event where there is nothing but love and beauty. 😉
