Spring 2022 begins on Sunday, March 20th. That's right, we are weeks away from longer, warmer, sunlit days here on Fairfield County's Gold Coast. A stunning time of year in our Southwestern corner of the state - trees, seasonal hedges, and flowers are about to blossom.  Our grass is about to get greener!! Until then, we thought bringing some life and color into your home might be a great way to wake the senses and get you ready for the treasures that lay ahead. Check out the list below for our TOP 5 favorite, local resources for greenery and flowers. With so many Spring holidays quickly approaching, we figured you might benefit from putting a few of these contacts on speed dial.

1. Fresh Flower Bar is the brilliant brainchild of CEO/Founder Sarah O'Brien. Founded in early 2018, Sarah's mission was to create a unique and experiential practice of selecting flowers for custom arrangements. Her idea stemmed from the vision of a beautiful shop lined with rows of flower-filled buckets that customers could pick from - "just like a bar". Sarah welcomes customers to her floral studio located within Outdoor Design & Living located in Fairfield at 1301 Bronson Road. Not into creating your own arrangement? That's okay! Sarah has many designs to select from online and she delivers throughout Fairfield County. Trust me, you cannot go wrong with a Fresh Flower Bar arrangement in your home or as a gift for friends, family members, or clients. 203.800.3830
