Serendipity Catering Highlights a Friend  

  

DWF Logo
 

Serendipity is always thrilled to work with Denver Wholesale Florists.  The DWF experts bring us the most beautiful, highest quality, fresh flowers in Denver.

 Nancy Blaylock, Serendipity's DWF floral sales coordinator, was kind enough to answer a few questions about floral trends for spring 2014. 

***

What floral trends are you seeing this spring?

 

Colors are Radiant Orchid which is a purple/pink color along with coral and turquoise/aqua.

 For weddings this year a look  of "romance" with peonies (early spring), garden roses and succulent plants giving a soft color palette and texture. 

 

 

What local flowers work best  for bouquets in spring/summer months?

 

Local flowers start to come in August-September and include Dahlias, Gomphrenia, Sunflowers, and Lisianthus.

For a long lasting bouquet stick with the basics, alstromeria, carnations, and chrysanthemums.

 

 

 

Anything unusual, or exotic to look for in trendy spring arrangements? 

 

This is a good time of year for leucadendrons, ranunculus, anemones, parrot tulips (frilly), blooming branches (fruit and Forsythia) and bright colors.

Did You Know?  

Spring Fun Facts   
   
Daylight savings  Spring  

         

 

  

Daylight Savings  

Benjamin Franklin was the first American to propose Dalylight Saving Time in 1784. However, it wasn't fully implemented in the US until after the Second World War.

Remember to set your clocks ahead one hour on Sunday, March 9th!   

  

 

Plants & Flowers  
 Some of the plants that have strong associations with spring include dandelions, daffodils, lilies, primroses, hyacinths, tulips, azaleas, iris and lilacs. 

  

 

Spring Fever!     

Spring fever is not just a myth - the body may experience physiological changes due to changes in diet, hormone production and temperature.

  

  

  

Birds   

Spring is when birds return home after migrating in winter. About 1800 bird species migrate.   

     

 

The Sun  

If you stand at the equator on the first day of spring, you will see the sun pass directly over head. This is only true two times a year; the first day of spring and the first day of Autumn.  

  

  

Butterflies   

Butterflies begin to gather nectar from the first flowers of the season. Adult butterflies can only feed on liquids, usually nectar. Their mouthparts are modified to enable them to drink, but they can't chew solids.

Think Spring! 

Spring Cupcake

 

We are dreaming of planting herbs and vegetables, and enjoying a lingering brunch with friends....  

we are thrilled spring 

is almost here!   

   
Few meals embody the season as much as a springtime brunch.   
 
We look forward to spring produce
all year long! 
 
 
Lamb is the quintessential 
meat of spring.   
 
Did you know?: The top 5 sheep producing states are: Texas, CA, CO, WY and
South Dakota. 
 
 
 
With warmer weather, entree salads and cool wrap ideas are in season.

 

Spring is the time to get playful with your special event, or everyday, cocktail!

 
 
   

The Garden  
 
Artichoke 

Whether you live in an urban loft without a yard, or a home in the suburbs with a lots of room for plants and flowers, it is always a pleasure to add fragrant herbs and nutritious vegetables to a
spring garden, big or small.
 

Thank You for Your  
Kind Words!    
 
Stuffed Figs

"Everything went great!
We received a lot of compliments on how good the food was and the service was fantastic! 

Jen (Serendipity catering captain) and her crew were excellent. Thanks to you and everyone who worked at helping us putting together such a great event!
 
It's hard to choose which was my favorite appetizer because it was all so great tasting. I would say the top three for me would be the Thai Chicken Sliders, Lemongrass Beef Skewers and the Stuffed Figs."
