Summer is not only a time for beach days and roasting s’mores by the campfire, it’s also… wedding season. Yes, that’s right, we are now in the thick of it. If you’re the lucky individual responsible for hosting the bridal shower, but you still have no clue what to do, don't worry! Here at Rolling Greens we offer private events and workshops for any special occasion!

Our private workshops include activities ranging from creating succulent arrangements to mounted staghorn ferns as well as one-on-one experience with our baristas. However, if you and your party are more interested in a simple, cute dinner or drinks, we also offer event + creative space rentals! Or retail locations are available to rent as a venue for events such as bridal showers, engagement parties, cocktail receptions and more. We absolutely love collaborating with our professionals in the Home + Garden industry to bring your special event to life!

Decorating With Potted Plants

One well known trick every designer knows is that plants are one of the best ways to elevate, or set the tone in a space. But how do they do it? We talked to one of our talented, resident baristas to get the best ideas when it comes to decorating with a potted plant. Continue reading to learn tips and tricks about matching your plants to their containers!

How To Pick Your Plant And Container

  • The first step is to pick whichever plant or container/pot speaks to you first, and let that dictate what you pair with it.

Balance

  • Balance between your plant and container is very important, so keep in mind that contrast is key!
  • For instance, if you are going to chose a textured plant that is very busy looking, you might consider pairing it with a simple, sleek container in order for the plant to really steal the show. On the other hand, if you chose a rather ornate container that you want to stand out, pick a plant with a modern silhouette, that stands straight up, or is one color.

Placement

  • Another thing to remember that you can always prop your plant up in whatever container you choose with foam bricks or plastic liners, so there’s no need to worry if your plant doesn’t fit perfectly at first. 
  • Figure out beforehand the size of the space you need to fill, and the position it should be in, so when you're searching for your plant and container you know what size you need.

Fillers

  • Lastly, finishing touches such as moss, gravel, stone etc, can really elevate the look of your potted plant. Sometimes picking your topper is just as important as picking the container and the plant itself! It can really set the tone for the arrangement!

Good luck, and don't forget to tag #RGatHome so we can see what beautiful creations you come up with!

Color of the Year

Despite the flood of millennial pink that has painted your Instagram feed for what seems like eternity, we have recently discovered the color of the year is actually green, more specifically Pantone’s “Greenery”. Yes, we’re biased, but who wouldn’t be knowing greenery, a refreshing and revitalizing yellow-green shade, symbolizes new beginnings, as well as the pursuit of personal spirit? This color is a nature’s neutral, making it the perfect addition to any home. Read on to learn how to gloss more “color of the year” into your life!

While your Pinterest boards may be filled with home decor inspo for summer, instead of repainting the living room in a regrettable Orion Blue, save yourself the money (and time) by incorporating actual greenery throughout your home. Filling an empty corner with lush, leafy plants will not only provide cleaner air throughout your house, but will completely change your environment and enhance your home aesthetic. As we are continuously surrounded by modern technology and industrial elements, the benefits of incorporating natural life, movement, and beauty into our everyday lives is essential.

Show us how you decorate with the color of the year by hashtagging #RGatHome or tagging us @rollinggreens in your Instagram pictures!

Rolling Greens Takes Round Top Texas

If you follow us on Instagram you might have noticed our most recent trip to Round Top Texas. Round Top offers the most amazing Antique Fairs throughout the year where you'll find an irresistible array of beautifully displayed very early Americana, Texas primitive, and Continental furniture and accessories. If there's one thing we love more than plants it's antiques - so you know we had to be there!

A trip to Texas wouldn't be complete without staying at a dreamy ranch. Our team stayed at the beautiful Silver Spur Ranch where they began gathering inspiration from all around.

Now to the good stuff! Check out what we brought back with us:

Lots and lots of planters - because why not?

Quarried in Belgium, the base color of honed Belgian Bluestone is a very dark and smoky indigo blue with fossils and hints of charcoal grey.

Clear to milky white crystal geodes - a perfect little sparkle to your space. 

Beautiful South American Manta Rugs with both neutral + vibrant color pallets.

Make sure to stop by both locations and shop all new Texas products - available now!
