Bonsall Country Festival

A few weeks ago we decided to participate in the Bonsall Chamber of Commerce's Annual Country Festival. It was a beautiful Saturday, and we thought it would be a great opportunity to show our Bonsall neighbors some of the different protea, banksia and leucadendron that are growing right next door in Rainbow, California.

So, we pulled out our Resendiz Brothers canopy, gathered up some protea plants, flowers & foliage, bouquets, arrangements, wreaths and a lovely garland, and off to Bonsall we went.

We proudly displayed our Resendiz Brothers banner and garnished it with a festive protea pink ice and seeded eucalyptus garland - perfect for the upcoming holidays!

We had a wonderful selection of protea bouquets filled with fresh protea, leucadendron, banksia integrifolia and that fabulous fall foliage grevillea ivanhoe.

And, our collection would not be complete without our gorgeous handmade protea wreaths! Definitely one of our favorite ways to use protea - as you can see the wreath has become our logo, our signature!

This colorful wreath was created with protea, banksia, leucadendron, grevillea and several other interesting foliages.

And for a little added touch we brought along a few protea arrangements ready to decorate any room in the house or office.

As our day in Bonsall progressed, we realized that the majority of people who stopped by to see our flowers had never seen them before, some even thought that we brought them in from Hawaii or some other exotic location, and others thought that they didn't look real. So, in the end it was this was a great way to spend our day - teaching our neighbors next door about the flowers and foliage we love growing!
