Dina was the perfect florist to work with. I showed her some pictures, gave her a color scheme and set her free. She did not disappoint. She went above our expectations for the wedding. We gave her some antlers to incorporate into the centerpieces and the arch for the ceremony. Everything turned out beautifully!

I worked with Dina for my wedding, and let me just say wow. She was great through the whole process, listened to every thing I said I wanted and did not want and really let her creativity flow. When we arrived in Breckenridge a few days prior to the wedding we decided to drop in and meet her. She asked to see pictures of the venue so she could get more inspiration(wedding was at a private residence). She really delivered. All my guests were blown away, and my Dad was especially pleased to see the unique use of flowers. She really works withs you on price, and tries to find things that would work in budget. We also has a few DIY vases for the aisle way that came out beautiful. Everything was stunning. Just stunning.

We just had our daughter’s wedding at a private home in Breckenridge. Dina was amazing throughout the entire process. She coordinated the tastings, helped us put the ceremony together, suggested photographers, found our beautiful rentals and an amazing chef.
Most of all she was always there to make sure it all came together. She was kind, professional and really listened to what we wanted and made our daughter’s dream wedding a reality.
I called her the day before the wedding, realizing I didn’t have place cards and candles for the ceremony. She was on the mountain and met me back at her shop in 30 minutes! Dina to the rescue! Can’t say enough about her artistry with flowers. Stunning and set the tone for our whole dinner. Thank you Dina!

Thank you so, so very much for listening to what we wanted and making it perfect. I will recommend you to everyone with upcoming weddings up here. You’re fantastic!!!!! I didn’t want to leave the arbor at Agape! It was so romantic there and at BlueSky because your flowers set that tone.

Before we leave Colorado this morning and head home to Wisconsin, I wanted to take a moment to send you a big THANK YOU for the gorgeous flowers for Emily and Neal’s wedding in Keystone this past Saturday. The bridesmaid’s bouquets were exactly what Emily and I wanted – the yellow against the blue dresses was gorgeous. The succulent touches throughout the bouquets was perfect; the girls all took them for rooting! Emily’s bouquet was unbelievably beautiful – and today is still lovely. The hydrangea, roses and greenery is stunning together. Dina, the table arrangements provided the WOW that I wanted when guests entered the dining room. They were striking with the blue twist linens, and the 20″ vases gave the room the necessary height while allowing conversation. The smaller boxes with sunflowers, tulips (a surprise – I love it! and they are still beautiful today in vases around our rental home) and large succulents were so creative. Thank you for your creativity and making our vision a reality. The flowers added so very much to the overall wedding, reception, and dinner ambiance. Thank you, and best wishes for continued success.

I could not be happier with the service by Petal & Bean!! The first time I met with Dina she was able to see my vision and make it a dream come true. It was such a pleasure working with her. She was such a great communicator throughout the entire process that the flowers were the least of my worries – imagine that! I trusted Dina, and she far exceeded my expectations!! My wedding was gorgeous, all thanks to her. Her service was so personalized, and I so appreciated the call she made to me the morning after to re-cap and compliment me on the look of my wedding. I look forward to the next time I work with Dina! On my frequent trips back to Breckenridge, I will always stop back to chat with Dina. She is amazing. I can not recommend her highly enough to anyone that has any floral needs – big or small. She really knows how to take care of her clients.
– Allison Blemberg, Bride, Breckenridge, Colorado
Dina and Stacy are great at what they do. Not only are they experts in their field but they know how to make you comfortable during the process to ensure the event turns out exactly how you invision it. They assisted with the flowers for my March 2008 wedding in Beaver Creek. They did an amazing job taking my ideas and vision (mostly over the phone) for the day and executing them amazingly. If you are in need for not only great flowers but great people to work with, Petal and Bean is your answer.

Thank you! The flowers for our wedding were incredibly beautiful, creative, and the sheers created a romantic setting – it was more beautiful than we expected – thank you so very much for all of your hard work. Everyone loved the candelabras – they were worth the effort of getting them here. I still have the bouquets and they are fresh and lovely. We were so lucky to have you involved in our wedding – thank you so very much.
– Bill and Alice Parkhouse
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for amazing flowers and the reception looked awesome too. Everyone thought the flowers were perfect and I especially loved the garland outside. You captured exactly what I had in mind and was so easy to work with. I will recommend you to future mountain wedding couples in the future.
– Katie, bride
I Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful arrangements for Sara and Tim’s wedding. The bouquets were perfect and looked beautiful with everything else Sara used. You guys were amazing, prompt and efficient to work with and in addition, my bouquet (bridesmaid) still looks beautiful and fresh and it’s been almost a week since the ceremony.
– Abby Clark
Planning a wedding is quite the experience, and I was worried about many things…but my flowers was not one of them. I have personally known Stacy and Dina for years, and knew they were the ones I would trust with my flowers. I knew Dina was very creative, and I wanted to let you have fun with my wedding. When we would meet, it was always a pleasure, very mellow and relaxing. All I had to do was tell her just a little bit about my vision, and she took care of the rest. She stayed right in my budget, and honored that truly. The end result was amazing, she was able to capture exactly what I was yearning for with very little direction. It was simply a pleasure working with them.
– Shannon, bride
Great personal attention to our wedding was felt at all times making it as unique and special as we wanted. Dina and crew knew how to find out what we really wanted and made it happen. The presentation was more than we had hoped for and people are still talking about it today. Flowers are more than just flowers when they come from Petal and Bean!
– Tracy, bride
Dina and Stacy provided amazing flowers for our wedding! The colors and textures were incredibly well thought through with my particular taste in mind. Dina’s creativity and positive energy radiated through her striking creations – it was a beautiful day! Dina and Stacy are fantastic to work with: extremely flexible, ambitious, caring, and attentive to detail. I couldn’t have imagined how wonderfully it would turn out. Dina also has great contacts and put me in touch with the the woman who made our cake; not only does she know an amazing number of wedding vendors, but also she answered any question I had about planning, from linens to flatware to tent decorating. You will NOT be disappointed!
– Katie, bride
Thank you for all your help. Your floral arrangements were absolutely beautiful. You knew exactly what I wanted from day one and were able to create my dream wedding.
– Christin & Jason, bride and groom
I love working with Dina and Stacy for obvious reasons. They have a wonderful sense of style and they’re fantastic with their clients! I’ve photographed several weddings where their flowers were front and center and I’ve never been disappointed. If you’re looking for flowers and decor as well as personable service then Dina and Stacy are a perfect fit.

Dina, here’s a picture that shows how beautiful Jeanie’s bouquet was on July 3rd. You made great choices to keep us in budget. We received many compliments on the table bouquets. I think they enhanced the fresh, warm and personal feeling that permeated this entire event. Thank you for doing such a nice job. The flowers used down the aisle were attached to Jeanie and Jake’s bikes so they rode down the mountain (their exit from the reception) fully decorated. They even rode around the parade the next day with flowers still attached. It was a great affair!
– Gail, bride’s mother

– Emily Campbell, Owner/Wedding Planner Bella Design & Planning
I feel so lucky that we chose you guys. Dina’s care and knowledge put us at ease right away. Her honesty about getting more bloom and punch out of certain flowers was right on and money wise. I feel that Dina did nothing but help and that means so much!! Every aspect of your work was wonderful.
– Jessica, bride
I absolutely loved all the flowers, you did such a wonderful job, and it was exactly what I wanted.

Thanks!
