MAY 2015

May is here and we couldn’t be happier. This month is sometimes crazier than Christmas, right? But it’s totally worth it because in May you get your craziness with fresh air and flowers, family and friends, finals and freedom and most of all FUN!

We hope you all enjoy this beautiful month. And for those Moms out there, you are wonderful! We honor you for all that you do! Happy Mother’s Day!

We couldn’t do what we do without the support of so many wonderful sponsors and we are thrilled to introduce three new platinum level sponsors for our Wildflower Outdoor Events; Gear30, Mountain Luxury and Lakeside Resort Properties.

Lakeside Properties will be helping us provide lodging for the Wildflower Events this year. Come a few days early and stay a few days after, make it a fun girls weekend retreat or just give yourself a less hectic event morning by staying over the night before. Rate information and other details will be posted on our website, Facebook, and Instagram when it is available. We will also have some great options for you if you’re looking for some fun activities to make your stay or girls weekend really outstanding.

Make sure to tell the men in your life that Gear 30 is having a Mothers Day Sale May 4th-9th with footwear, apparel, and a lot of other gift items. Also plan to attend their Women in the Wild Workshop on June 16th.

We welcome these great businesses to the Wildflower family and look forward to working with them in the future. As always, these businesses give so much to help our events run and we love promoting their businesses so be sure to check these and all our sponsors out.
