I think we can all agree we need some BRIGHT COLOR and evidence of SPRING in our lives right about now, move on already, winter; gahh! (Fitting to be posting this on the rainiest Monday in awhile!) This weekend was the perfect chance to absorb some colors of the rainbow at Family Tree Nursery's Open House weekend at all 3 KC locations. My gardening thumb is about as black as they come, but I am obsessed with having bright green trees, plants, and succulents, as well as fuchsia orchids around my house, and the first time I visited @family_tree_nursery
, it by far had the most gorgeous and widespread selection to choose from. Beyond being a domesticated resource, this family owned store also likes to host free events throughout the year! I missed "Ladies Night" on Friday night of this past weekend (wine, appetizers, and live music; great chance to feel like you're partying in a jungle), but I didn't want to miss the open house on Sat/Sun that provided live music, caffeine to kick start the day from @thoumayest
coffee, snacks from a line up food trucks like @ash.bleu.cheese.com
, and local goods from a dozen or more local artisans like @galenation.
It's a playground for kids who can participate in face painting, a traveling petting zoo, balloon animals and games, and crafts like painting and gardening to take home their finished products, and they offer workshops for adults to build your own succulent garden or spring container...and, 20% off nearly everything. 50 years later, this team of 100+ are passionate about horticulture, and Family Tree sends their staff around the country to scout trial gardens to find the best varietals for our Midwest weather. I haven't visited the other two locations, but walking into the OP location brings that happy spring sensory experience out of you which translates to the vibe in our homes. 🌳🌷🌵🌼🎋🌿🌾🌹🌱🌸🌲🌻💐🎍🌺#familytreenursery #overlandpark #overlandparkks #overlandparkkansas #opks #shawneeks #shawneekansas #kansascity #kansascityflorist #kansascityblogger #kansascitykansas #kc #kclife #kcmo #instakc #igkansascity #kansas #missouri #igkc #visitkc #madeinkc
