As the winter blast is currently in full force, I really do appreciate having my indoor succulents around! A heartfelt thanks to all who came out to the Bobcat Boutique. I really cannot say enough about what a great show they put on! It was so much fun bringing our creations to you and talking about succulents all day. I literally lost my voice after the show! For those that purchased a succulent from us, don’t forget to check out the succulent care page. Your plants will be most happy with limited water and lots of sunlight! Remember “When in doubt, let them drought!”
We decided to jazz up our space this time with some vintage props and I think that it turned out really nice. This was also the debut of a number of new products including the succulent book planters, the encyclopedia planters (which sold before I could get a decent picture of them) and our first birdcage succulent arrangement (which almost sold before we had the space set up on Friday night!). I was able to get a couple pictures of the birdcage which I will post about later this week. If the idea sounds interesting to you, don’t fret, I was able to come across a few more birdcages and have those at our next show…
Speaking of our next show, we haven’t officially tied down the dates (tentatively Nov 21st-Dec 5th), but your next opportunity to see Geek Gardens will be in an entirely new format. We are collaborating with an incredible local artist (check out his photo montages here) to put together a great art exhibit at Drips Coffee Shop in Council Bluffs Iowa (by the way, if you go to Drips, make sure to order the hibiscus soda. Tres makes his own syrups and they are amazing!). We have some amazing and funky new succulent containers that will make their debut at Drips.
Now, Nebraska friends who are averse to traveling across them Mighty Missouri River, worry not! We are coming to an event near you soon! We will be involved in shows every weekend from November 29th to December 13th. Plenty of chances to get your favorite Geek Gardens succulent gifts. The first Omaha event information is below. Make sure to check out the facebook page to see the other amazing vendors! Remember this is all local artisans and all handmade gifts!
Hope to see you this Holiday Season!!
The time is finally here and we are excited about our first show of the season! Come Join us for the Bobcat Boutique at the Iowa School for the Deaf tomorrow from 9:00-4:00 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. We will have a huge variety of succulent arrangements including your favorites from the blog along with many one of a kind re-purposed creations!
Hope to see many of you tomorrow!
I have mentioned in a number of posts how Geek Gardens was hired to provide terrariums and plantings for a wedding this summer. Well, the wedding bells will be ringing on Saturday and guests of the bride and groom will be treated with amazing succulent decor. When the dust had settled in the Geek Garden’s Greenhouse, 51 terrariums and planted arrangements were packed and loaded!
I cannot wait to see how the reception venue looks on Saturday! I am sure that their tablescapes will be unlike any reception hosted their before! I will have a followup post next week with pictures from the weddings with the succulents all set up! We are so happy for the bride and groom and honored to be apart of their big day!
If you are interested in Geek Gardens to help provide your wedding decor, just send us a message through the blog or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
