Brooklyn Botanical Garden Wedding

By Natasha, April 4th, 2014, Brooklyn, floral design, wedding

Thanks to Style Me Pretty for featuring some of our floral arrangements from Cody and Joe’s wedding that took place in the Palm House of Brooklyn’s Botanical Garden. Our exotic floral arrangements consist of not only hand picked floral splendor, but stems of edible fig and black berry accents that compliment the rich ruby and fuscia tones of peonies, dahlias, anemones, jasmine, and roses. The lovely bride, Cody, is also wearing one of our carefully hand crafted floral necklaces.

Also, check out their guest seating assignment seed packets! What a neat and creative idea to give the gift of growing your very own flora to friends and family.

You can see more photo’s from the wedding here. All photographs featured were done by  Ava Weddings Fine Art Photography. 

 

 

Spring Forward with Sprout

By Natasha, March 28th, 2014, Brooklyn

This sweet seed and pot set up was photographed by some lovely women of Moomah Magazine, in our Williamsburg location.

Can you believe it’s finally spring and the equinox was already a week ago? Neither can we! I guess folks can now say with a bit of well deserved and nearly missed optimism “Hey honey, spring is in the air.” because baby, it is. It sure was a seriously rough winter and here at Sprout, our newly constructed plant racks in the  backyard are beginning to fill up with blooming annuals, savory herbs, hearty perennials, and incredible evergreens for all of your outdoor gardening dreams. Even our seed rack is starting to spin on a daily basis, and people can’t get enough of our floral, herb, and vegetable seed selection. The time is NOW, my friends, to start collecting seeds for the backyard, windowsill, or even fire escape garden you’ve been dreaming so long of.

We even had the pleasure of being mentioned online by Moomah Magazine, for seed growing inspiration and dynamic gardening books that we carry in our store. Take a look for yourself, and see some more images and a nice little write up.

Long Island Summer Wedding

A happy bride photographed by Lindsay Madden Photography

Even though it’s January and freeeeezing outside, it’s definitely nice to remind ourselves of the incredibly warm, relaxing summer vibes that await us only 4 (fingers crossed!) or so months ahead.  One sweet way in reminiscing such simpler times could be taking a gander at these photographs by Lindsay Madden Photography, of this beautiful wedding that was held last summer in Long Island. All floral arrangements were specially designed for a fresh, romantic summer color palate and are carried beautifully by such a happy new family!

Full Throttle into the Holidays

By Stephen Hill, November 22nd, 2013, Brooklyn, Chicago, Holiday greens

We’re super excited for holidays here at Sprout Home – and throwing ourselves full force into the season like a snowsuit-padded child into a snow bank!

With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching next week, we’re prepared with evergreens for winter decor, potted herbs for cooking and hostess gifts and then some… But let’s back up a moment:

Looking back, we’re also full of thanks. I took  a poll around the Chicago store: Jess is thankful for illustrations (not Dilbert or Garfield the cat) but medical details and bits&pieces of insects, while Ellen is thankful for Begonias paired with vintage pottery…

One thing we all agree on: We had a fantastic summer and extend our thanks to everyone from customers who pick our brains every day to couples who shared their wedding days with Sprout Home. And, a big thanks to all of our landscape clients who let us push the conventions of gardening in order to design beautiful and engaging gardens for them!

So thank you again, all of you, we’re looking forward to a fun holiday season — so…stop in or look through our online catalog. New products and plants are coming in almost daily, and we’re prepared, for walk-in and pre-booked holiday arrangements and plant-potting. We also welcome recipe sharing — desserts especially. See you soon!

Please note both stores will observe  our regular retail hours, but are closed for the Thanksgiving holiday.
