Aspen Allure: Florists

by The Culinistas

While you’re on your morning hike, stop to smell the flowers… and pick a couple along the way. Aspen is home to Prairie Smoke Roses, that peak from April to June and Mountain Blue Bells, taking over in summer, from June to August. No time to pick your own? For larger floral orders and more refined arrangements or bouquets, we suggest looking into the following businesses. These florists pull influences from across the country as well as elevate local bounty.


Owned and operated by Beth Gill, Aspen Branch offers elegant arrangements for special occasions, holidays, or the every day.  If you’re hosting a larger event, Aspen Branch also works with you to create a multitude of arrangements to fill the space and ensure that life and color are dotted throughout the space.  Aspen Branch also offers boutique rentals for furniture pieces you may need to fill your space and compliment your florals. Be sure to check out their Instagram to see some of their beautiful work. Think sweeping arrangements and classic shades.


Mountain Flowers of Aspen emphasizes a hands-on client services experience, ensuring the arrangements you choose are uniquely you and capture everything you’re looking for in your florals.  They offer a wide array of sizes, arrangement styles, and flower options (many of which are native to Aspen!), so be sure to head in for their expertise and the beauty of their art. Think refreshing pieces and a colorful palette.

Sashae is a great floral delivery service.  If you’re too busy planning your party or setting up for the event, plan on ordering your florals from Sashae.  Offering a wide variety of flowers, styles, and arrangements, Sashae provides the best product to decorate your home with, or to simply send gratitude to a loved one.  Tulips, succulents, roses, the list goes on… Think plump secret garden baskets and lyrical hues.
