unique and sculptural floral design by Gorgeous and Green

Flower designs flying out the boutique lately...

We've been really busy making beautiful locally grown flower arrangements (using organic when available)!  And if you didn't know, we offer local bicycle gift delivery via our friends at Pedal Express!

Did I mention we were awarded the Best of Berkeley 2013 Award?

Here are a few samples of what's been coming out of the boutique:

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:

boutique finds for the holidays

New Winter items at the GG boutique

The items available at Gorgeous and Green are always changing.  We have some new arrivals in preparation for the gift giving season ahead of us.  And, as always, we try to find other sustainably minded artists and folks locally, when possible. I recently brought in some locally made soy candles from Cocibolca, and the purchase of each candle helps save the rainforest!

We are almost sold out of the wooden ties we got in from Wood Thumb, a small business by two brothers in San Francisco.  Time to reorder! For those in love with tillandsias or airplants, we have new airplant display art in the boutique by JFish designs made right here in Berkeley.  Some small and large clove hanging holders, small wall pockets in various colors and hanging twig vases/holders.
