Three Fun Spring Installations We Love

Spring is always an exciting time to be in the plant business. Longer, wetter days mean lots of gorgeous greenery, and something about the changing of the seasons always seems to inspire creativity. Below, three recent projects we’ve been loving:

 

Resort Lobby Plantings Featuring Ceramics, Bamboo, and Succulent Gardens

Plants for resort lobby bamboo canes, glazed ceramic, guzmanias

 

 

This beach-side hotel lobby called for a set of plantings as vibrant and fun as the space itself–and we were thrilled to help! One of the fun challenged here was finding a set of plantings that didn’t take up too much floor space but still had both height and room for color. Preserved bamboo canes provide that height and a bit of flare, leaving plenty of room for bright, tropical guzmanias.

A set of smaller tabletop ZZs in matching glazed ocean-blue ceramics complete the look, while two large “beach in a bowl” succulent gardens featuring seashells, driftwood, and that famous white sand are the icing on top.

 

 

 

Graduation Jungle Featuring Tropical Color and Palms

Another fun thing about spring? It’s graduation season! We love working with schools on enhancing venues for commencement ceremonies, and are so honored to be able to be a part of celebrating the success of so many young people in our community as well as the incredible educators and educational administrators who help them along the way.

This arrangement was prepared for multiple high school graduations at the Bradenton Convention Center, and we just loved how lush and vibrant it turned out.

 

 

 

 

Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center Entryway Featuring Succulents, Palms, and Custom Planter Bowls

Plant Parents is a local business, through and through–and it’s no secret that we love Sarasota and are honored to run the Downtown In Bloom flower basket program, managing the pretty plantings you’ll see on light posts throughout the city. So we were delighted to offer our services to the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center.

In addition to live plants inside the building offices, we installed a set of exterior container plantings designed with creating great first impressions in mind. These locally produced concrete bowls hold a mix of cheery succulents anchored by very-Florida palm trees.

Three Unique Plantings We Love

Every space has its unique challenges–and often those challenges are part of their charm. It’s always a treat when we can find ways to use those unusual nooks and crannies as part of a plant program.  Below, check out three recent favorites!

From The Space Under The Stairs to The Space Everyone Wants to See

Colorful Plants In Office

An empty stretch under the stairs can be tricky to design around. Even if it’s not closed off, it can become a de-facto storage area, which isn’t always pretty. With a little creativity, this client was able to take full advantage of their space, filling in a small depression with black polished stone and topping it off with bowls brimming with tropical color, creating a memorable installation that draws visitors from inside the building and off the streets.

 

A Custom Orchid Wall For A Busy Cafe

This cafe owner loved orchids–but with a busy business, there was only so much space to add more. We worked with them to develop a system for adding orchids to this wall installation for an eye-catching take on the green wall. It’s easy to customize this piece with fresh plants and accessories, making it a great conversation piece that always has something new to offer.

 

Succulents Spruce Up A Wooden Wall

 

Succulent Wall

This bar had a really interesting, geometric wood wall. The wall was striking empty, but adding small succulents to the built in pockets upped the ante. A mix of upright and trailing pieces creates a look that’s on trend and so very Instagram-able.
