The team of gift growers at Buds 'n Bloom Design Studio showcases a variety of fresh flowers, gifts, and décor items to brighten homes. An assortment of fresh flowers ($20+) or a succulent houseplant ($9+) can spruce up a lonely dining room table or welcome guests into the foyer of a tree house. Important documents are elegantly pinned to the desk with the Murano glass paperweight ($28), and an array of colored recycled-glass vases and bottles ($10–$20) can display flowers, baubles, or collections of accurate fortune-cookie predictions in an eco-friendly vessel. Beseech one of the friendly boutique staff to point you in the direction of a decorative ceramic bird figurine ($5), ideal for flying taunting circles around ceramic cats or nesting in a crewel embroidered keepsake box ($18.75).
Flower-focused classes taught by Enchanted Forest's experienced staff help bouquet bundlers of all skill levels learn the art of fashioning attractive flower arrangements. Would-be petalworkers can learn to tie bouquets, create centerpieces, and care for and display flowers in the class of their choice. Sit in on the Principles & Elements of Design: Flower Arranging 101 session to learn floral fundamentals, or take the Wedding/Prom: Fun & Easy Corsages/Boutonnieres class to add flair to a special day or deprive a normal day of its banality. Shower your home in shoots and sprays with instructions from Creative Container Planting, enroll in a wreath-making experience, or create table displays for bud-studded holidays of the future. Classes are held on Tuesday evenings, Friday afternoons, and Saturday mornings, and include materials.
The Orchid Bug helps spruce up terraces and gardens with a robust inventory of orchids, green plants, and growing supplies. Stationed at the front of the shop, a large window sends sunlight splashing across thriving displays of flora. Visitors snaking around those displays can indulge their budding curiosity by quizzing owner Denise Kirchmayer, or by participating in one of the store's classes. For a general overview of orchids and their culture, Orchids 101 fertilizes the minds of new and seasoned collectors alike, and more in-depth sessions, such as Orchids 102, explores the natural habitats of specific genera and why water is better than Tabasco sauce for sustaining a plant's life. Hands-on gatherings, such as Plug at the Bug, guide students through the planting process.
