G&G on College!

Hello! It's been a fun few months here at the new boutique, and as we settle into the new location, I have gotten back into blogging.  I'd like to just share a few pics from the new location of Gorgeous and Green at 2946 College Ave in Berkeley's Elmwood.  In case you haven't been there yet, we are smack dab in between Ici Ice Cream and Summer Kitchen, so come by for some unique local gifts/plant/flower bouquets and grab a snack at our neighbor's. Here's our locally hand-painted sign:

Strange euphorbia arrangement for local farm to table restaurant

Late April Arrangements at Origen

Gorgeous and Green provided another set of wild and local restaurant arrangements for Origen Restaurant in Berkeley.  Here is a pic of the large dining room arrangement.  The focal points were deformed echium branches, I thought it looked almost like a large oyster mushroom, along with locally grown protea and local greens.
