Happy Earth Day from Bella Fiori!

A question we often hear from brides is: What elements can we incorporate that are friendly to our planet?

First, let's look at centerpieces. How about potted plants instead of fresh-cut flowers? Plants grown locally which your guests can take home and enjoy?

Here is an orchid. These are grown locally, not too far from our studio.

Lucky bamboo is another option, many guests enjoy taking these centerpieces home.

Second: favors. One of my favorite favors are tree saplings, so cute & rustic in their burlap sacks!

Third, try to use fresh flowers grown locally. As for fresh cut flowers, we do work closely with Stevens and Son.
"Stevens and Son Wholesale Florist is the largest grower of Asiatic and Oriental Lilies in the Rocky Mountain region. We grow over 20 varieties of Asiatic Lilies and 10 varieties of Oriental Lilies. We also grow Alstroemeria, Dahlias, Freesia, Iris, Snapdragons, Sunflowers, Tulips, and other seasonal flowers in our 100,000 square foot greenhouse located in Arvada, Colorado."
