Field to Vase Boulder with American Grown Flowers

Sometimes we are fortunate to be brought onboard where a stellar team is already assembled and we get to work magic with our fellow vendors. This was the case when Kasey Cronquist from American Grown Field to Vase reached out one month prior to their Boulder event. The Field to Vase Tour is a series of private, intimate, must-attend gatherings that place seasonal, local and sustainable American Grown flowers at the center of the table where locally grown food, beer, and wine is served by a farm-to-table chef. We were fortunate to help participate this year in the 2nd annual Boulder event with some of our favorite local vendors such as Robyn Rissman of Bare Root Flora and Alicia Schwede of Flirty Fleurs, (long time friend and former Colorado florist), Kristy and Chet Anderson of the Fresh Herb Company, our venue and Blackbelly Catering, our local farm-to-table powerhouse! Together we created a beautiful evening for our guests, showcased what Colorado flower farmers and florists are exceptional at and had incredible weather! We already can’t wait for next year’s event!

There is something magically sweet about an Airstream Trailer. Maybe its the sleek design, or maybe its the fact that they make for some Pinterest-worthy photos – either way, we need one! Take a trip to Santa Barbara and rent out an airstrip from Autocamp! From the Autocamp Website: “Designed and built in Santa Barbara by Architect Matthew Hofmann, each Airstream is as unique as the history of its past. Boasting a combined 250 years of age – and surely thousands of miles on the road – our Airstreams are living out a third or fourth life as an Autocamp suite. Each Airstream comfortably sleeps four people and has been renovated locally with sustainable construction methods and materials.”

Address: 2717 De La Vina St. Santa Barbara, CA 93105

We’re big lovers of traveling, so any excuse to wrangle up the gals and we are in! What better way to celebrate with your friends than a big road trip on the coast.  Take the Highway One road trip to explore the coast of California. Our suggestion? Rent one of these super fun Vintage Surfari Wagons to really complete the trip! Make sure you map out your stops ahead of time. There is so much to see!

For ideas and places to pit stop on the road trip, check out here and here.

On a budget? No problem! For a more wallet-friendly option, throw a backyard shindig and make it a movie night! Set up some themed snacks (salted caramel popcorn, anyone?), add some comfy blankets and pillows, and pop in some rom-coms! Step it up notch and host a small dinner before the movie. A simple white sheet can act as the screen while you play movies on an affordable projector from Amazon.

Happy planning!
