I’ll be honest, I am a new blogger. However, I couldn't resist sharing my excitement about my new love...succulents. What better way to share than to blog?!
Succulents...colorful, low-maintenance SUCCULENTS!! My most favorite are the mini-succulents. You might be asking yourself...what is the size of a 'normal' succulent?
A succulent is not only a simple and awesome way to bring some green into your home, but also a lovely and broad category of plants including cacti. In fact, cacti are succulents; however, not all succulents are cacti. I have recently learned that not all cacti have spikes and some succulents do and, the color is stimulated by heat...hence Arizona can breed very colorful succulents and Colorado, not so much. Regardless, when you bring succulents home to live in your kitchen, office, or wherever you need a little living cuteness that requires almost no attention.
With Valentine's Day approaching, a succulent arrangement would be a thoughtful gift. Call Bella Calla today to schedule your Valentine's Day arrangement in advance.

Your partner said “Yes!” Congratulations on popping the question! The hard part is over but it’s not the end. Your fiancé may be doing most of the planning (after all, it’s their dream wedding) but it doesn’t mean you don’t have a role to play.
From establishing who’s in charge to giving your groomsmen gifts, here are 6 dos and don’ts to help you along the way:
DO #1: Establish that your fiancé is in charge of the wedding.
As well-meaning as your mother could possibly be, her calling your fiancé often could be trouble brewing. Prevent any fall-out by establishing that your partner is in-charge. If you sense your mom’s becoming too involved or she’s no longer making suggestions but mandating, make sure to talk to her in private. Ask her to keep calls to a minimum and to not take it personally if her recommendations are not approved.
DON’T #1: Stand in the sidelines and watch things slowly begin to burn.
Your fiancé will be bombarded with advice from your mother down to the person that sells flowers. Sometimes the advice will be welcome and well-received but there will be times when people over step their place. When this happens, don’t just stand in the side lines and have your partner handle these meddling busybodies. Let them know that you have their back and that you support their decision.
DO #2: Know that you still have a say.
Even if they already have every part of the wedding thought out, know that you still have a say. You can make your objections sound less harsh by offering it as a suggestion. If the eggshell-colored table napkins offend you in some way, suggest another color and offer to help them choose the motif for the wedding table. Try to compromise where you can and remember to keep their feelings in mind.
DON’T #2: Complaining and not doing anything.
Complaining and pointing out things you don’t like is a surefire way to get into an argument with your fiancé. Before you start critiquing their plans, make sure your tasks are ironed out. For your part, you need to choose a wedding party, prepare you and your wedding party’s attire, compile your guest list, arrange the marriage license and plan the honeymoon.
DO #3: Thanking your guests.
Your partner will probably be too tired or buzzed to entertain your guests when the big day arrives. After all the planning they’ve done, helping them handle the guests will be your main duty. Don’t just stand around with your friends, mingle around with other guests, make sure to greet everyone at the reception and thank them for their attendance.
DON’T #3: Forget to thank your groomsmen.
Taking care of your side of the entourage does not end with picking out what to wear. Your friends have spent time and money to walk you down the aisle, so it’s only apt to buy your groomsmen gifts as your token of appreciation. It doesn’t have to be fancy, something practical or personal will do just as well.
There is a long list of things to prepare for a wedding. Even if it’s a small intimate affair, your fiancé needs your help in getting things done. Unless you want a stressed-out partner, it’s important to know your duties as the groom-to-be. By following these tips, you can have a happy wedding and a happy life.

Check out Amanda and Dustin's gorgeous Grant Humphreys Mansion Wedding!
Amanda and Dustin were married this summer at the Grant Humphreys Mansion in Denver! Bella Calla was SO happy to help with the flowers for this gorgeous couple's wedding! We loved her BOHO bouquet, his sweet custom suit, and those amazing ceremony photos! Photography by Carnefix Photography! Garden roses, peonies, eucayptus, and gorgeous dahlias and football mums were so pretty in the bohemian style flowers, and her gorgeous dress looked amazing on the steps of the mansion. How handsome is that groom!?

Megan and Matthew chose a perfect fall day to get married at the Evergreen Lakehouse! The gorgeous lake view really made the guests' experience amazing! The wedding colors were luxurious - marsala with lovely lush greenery. They had lantern centerpieces, birdcage centerpieces, and a gorgeous chuppah they rented from Bella Calla (find out more here!). True Photography did a fabulous job capturing their day! Kelly Lamb Events did a great job with the planning and wedding coordination!
Fall wedding at the Church Ranch Event Center - Boulder wedding florist
Check out our gorgeous brides, Jill and Kristen! We absolutely loved working with these ladies, and Sweetly Paired - Boulder wedding planner at the Event Center at Church Ranch! These ladies wanted bright, fun fall colors for their flowers, and the contrast was incredible! Allison with Red Shoes Photography did a beautiful job with the images! Their bouquets had a mix of locally grown dahlias, calla lilies, mums, and seasonal mixed flowers. We did pretty pops of floral in their hair as well. Check out the tall centerpieces on aspen logs! The gorgeous cake came from Shamane's Bake Shop!
Luxury White Wedding - Vail Colorado - Beaver Creek Colorado - Red Sky Ranch Wedding
When we met Fran, we were absolutely thrilled to have her in the shop. She has unerringly stunning vision, and She and Tucker got engaged on Houmas House Plantation in Louisiana, where Lilli, the owner, grew up! Such an awesome connection meant that we couldn't wait to do her flowers. She wanted white, green, and gold.... and LUSH! I think we accomplished exactly that! The arch had peonies, hydrangea, and lush greens, and her bouquet had peonies, garden roses, lisianthus, and awesome lush foliage. We added a new arch to our arch rental inventory! Even her invitation suite was gorgeous! Table 6 did a fabulous job of planning, Red Sky Ranch was the perfect Colorado Mountain Venue, and of course, the amazing Colorado wedding photographer - Emily Sacco!! It was SUCH a pleasure to work on this fabulous vendor team.
Bella Calla was voted best florist in Denver by 5280 Magazine's editors - and we can't be more proud! Thanks to the team who put together this awesome event!
