Join us THIS SATURDAY for a very special POP-UP we’ve been dreaming about for months✨🌿 Pick up the holiday wreath of your dreams from the incredibly talented florist Katie of @eothen_ - all while meeting locally based author Cassie Winslow of @decotartelette ! Cassie will be doing a book signing of her ever-so-popular book Floral Libations, a beautifully curated floral cocktail recipe book! She will also be serving Prosecco with a rose-salted rim glass and her book will be 20% off for the event/book signing! Although Katie will have lots of wreaths available at the Pop-Up, you can pre-order ahead of time to ensure you get yours. Link in bio. Hope to see you this Saturday from noon-4pm.🙌🏽✨🌸🥂🍂

Another fun Wine Walk for the books!! We LOVE having our business in downtown Santa Cruz and wouldn’t have it any other way! It’s so fun meeting new people all the time and being part of awesome events like this one along with @firstfridaysantacruz and so many others! Our downtown is the heart of Santa Cruz and all of you amazing people who love it make it beat. We feel so lucky to be part of this community and look forward to a fun holiday season ahead! Thank you for shopping local so independent businesses can continue to thrive and be part of what makes this town so special 💛 P.S. We wanted to tag more businesses but apparently the max is 20🙄
Plants make people happy! Fact ✔️ A few of our cute B+L girls, including our newest gal Kiera, with some of their personal fav plants (of the moment)! Stop by today to say hi! Here from 11am-6pm. Wine walk starts at 2pm - if you haven’t gotten your tickets, it’s not too late!! Hurry!
Taking a moment to rest in between unpacking mounds of boxes and had to share all the feels we are feeling. We wanted to take this time to give a shout out to all the makers working so hard pouring so much love into their craft this holiday season. With each box we open up we can feel the love and we feel so much gratitude that we get to offer such special goods handmade with intention and meaning. Thank you for supporting small business this holiday season - it makes a difference 🙏🏽 This is a photo of our friends from @conlocommon foraging in bend, Oregon. A small business ran by two sisters who make the most special “light my fire” bundles. Swipe to see the finished result and find these beauties at Botanic and Luxe this Holiday season!
Au naturale happy skin thanks to our dry weather Rx - @wildcare_body hydrosols! We’ve said it once and we will say it again, these hydrosols are THE BEST! Lovingly made by Cortney in Portland, Oregon with fresh plant material and spring water! If you haven’t been turned on to hydrosols then now is the time! Come try them out today at B+L. P.S. don’t mind the awkward selfie, Instagrams algorithm made us do it 😝
Time to get cozy with the YUMMIEST hot chocolate from our Front St. friends over at @mutarichocolate ! These make the best little treat for you or as a gift - and how cute would these minis be for stocking stuffers?!
Dream team ✨🌿 Feeling so grateful for this amazing group of women right here. Not only are they hard workers, but each and every one of them has a heart of pure gold. During our employee meeting tonight (which was mostly the typical rant from Ariel and I about our type A obsessions) we talked about the power of positivity. We all agreed that showing up to work and being positive, even if we aren’t necessarily having the best day/week/month, is contagious and how sharing that kindness and positivity with all of you really shifts our mood. We have the most lovely people ( YOU! ) who shop at our store and we love being a special part of your day. As two people who have put some much love and intention into this business of ours, we want to take a moment to feel proud that we have had the opportunity to build this. Thank you for making this all possible and thank you to these women right here who permeate this kindness and warmth on the daily!
