The Flutter Magazine team recently stopped by our Jefferson store to create a Botanical Entertaining piece featured in their latest issue! Our green-house was the perfect setting for this picturesque tablescape filled with floral details and delicate linens. The lush greens in our store created a vital and inviting environment perfect for any celebration.

Not only was the table surrounded by beautiful plant-life, there were also small details throughout the table that brought our botanical dream to life. At each place setting, there was a personalized menu printed with beautiful leaves and vines. The team also hand-tied miniature floral bouquets and placed them beside the menus.

When it comes to entertaining, the set-up is key. Create an incredible display table for your dessert offerings using unique plating for each sweet treat ensuring that it will compliment the rest of your decor.

In keeping with the botanical style, the team plated delicious desserts on rustic wooden boards and platters with neutral tones. The long-stemmed blooms above were perfect to fill in negative space and draw the eye to the star of the dessert table, the three-tiered cake.

Instead of opting for a standard floral centerpiece, try incorporating fresh blooms in a unique way! Consider serving a sweet treat with an edible flower garnish from The Kitchen For Exploring Foods that will leave your guests wanting more. Another great way to incorporate the botanical theme into your entertaining is using flower-filled ice cubes in your specialty cocktails!

Springtime Al Fresco Dining

Spring is in the air and it’s the perfect time to host the al fresco dinner party you’ve always wanted! Continue reading below to learn a little more on how to host the perfect al fresco dinner party.

Table Setting

The table setting is a crucial part to the aesthetic of your al fresco dinner party. It is the first thing that people will notice when they sit down. The best place to start with is a table cloth. Try to go with a color that fits the occasion or theme of the dinner. If you are hosting a dinner for a graduation, keep the colors of the school that the graduate is attending in mind. If it is for a wedding, make note of what the colors or theme of the wedding is and stick with that. If there is no specific celebration, have fun with it, but stick to a theme. You don’t want to stray too far from your core ideas. Consider thinking about outside factors such as what time of year it is. Spring time would be the perfect time to experiment with pastels! Once you have found the perfect tablecloth to fit your occasion, pick a centerpiece. Flowers make for the perfect focal point of your table, so check out your local nursery to see what flowers are in season!

Light up the night with some candles or lights throughout the table. This will make the setting more intimate and allow you and your guests to see each other when the sun sets. Take the indoors outdoors. Using furniture from inside to your table setting outside will make for a cozier setting. Guests will feel comfortable and enjoy themselves in this unique setting. Lastly, set up a second place to serve food and drinks that is outside. This way guests will not have to travel back inside when looking to get seconds.



Hosting can be a lot of work so make it stress free by calling in catering! The Kitchen For Exploring Foods has an amazing team that will create the meal of your dreams.

How To Prepare Your Garden For Spring

Can you believe Spring is only 25 days away? It is time to break out your gardening tools, order your bulbs, and prepare your garden for the season. Continue reading below for helpful advice from our team!

As you prepare your garden for the spring season, make sure that you order summer-flowering bulbs and seeds ahead of time! These bulbs and seeds should be planted in the spring so that they reach full bloom during the summer months. Some of our favorites summer-blooming flowers include calla lilies and dahlias!

In the month before spring, you should also clean your up all the leaves and fallen branches from your garden area. After the planting area is clean, rake the soil and level it so that when you plant the seeds and bulbs they will grow on a level plane. 


Additionally, try to clean all of your gardening tools are clean ahead of time! This will prevent the spread of unwanted pests and disease in your garden. First, remove large clumps of soil with a hard-bristle brush. Next, hose down all of the tools with water and once dry store them in your shed or garage.

Most plants will not grow to their full potential if the seeds are placed directly into the soil. It is important to start growing these seeds indoors ahead of time! In the weeks leading up to spring, plant your seeds in a small container indoors. When the spring comes around, then transplant these small plants into the garden where they will thrive.
