Ellen Cara

After a great run as the owner of Bloemenhaus, a full-service florist gallery in the heart of downtown Boulder, Colorado, I retired from retail and moved to the country where that always dreamed of garden became a reality. It’s been growing and overgrowing ever since. My private studio is in the historic Pleasant View Ridge School House (circa 1899), a Boulder County Landmark. Nestled outside city limits, it is a remarkable place and the perfect spot for a creative soul.

I adore weddings and all things floral! Being a part of a couple’s wedding day is an absolute honor and I’m passionate about offering a brilliant service alongside spectacular floral arrangements.

I lovingly share our homegrown flowers and delicately scented herbs, carefully hand-selecting blooms and foraging organic botanicals from our gardens whenever possible. I also source from local growers for the freshest seasonal and regional flowers and foliage. And, for those specialties and “must have flowers”, I discriminately shop certified Organic and Veriflora products, whom share a respect for the earth and support socially and environmentally responsible growers. I’m the go-to-gal for Green Wedding options in Colorado and am happy to share my expertise and even cost-saving ideas for weddings. I’m down-to-earth and like to keep it real and fun… “real fun”!!

I welcome the opportunity to put my creative talents to work for you.

You are truly gifted, and I am so glad I had you as my florist!

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did! Everyone absolutely loved the variety and color, and you really met all my expectations, exceeding some even.
