Outdoor Design & Living and Fresh Flower Bar, have scheduled their Ribbon Cutting on March 10th. The official ribbon cutting Ceremony will be officiated by First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick, at 4:30PM.
Spring is right around the corner and Outdoor Design & Living and Fresh Flower Bar, located at 1301 Bronson Road in Fairfield are kicking off the season with a special Celebration and ribbon cutting.
Outdoor Design & Living’s Owner, Chris Palmer, is thrilled to showcase his first year partnership with Sarah O’Brien’s floral studio, Fresh Flower Bar, as well as his expansive nursery and landscape services. Ever since the two companies began to share the same space in March of2020, both businesses have expanded and want to commemorate the one-year anniversary of their combined offerings and how they have been able to help each other remain resilient and successful.
Outdoor Design & Living (ODL) took over the pre-existing landscape property on Bronson Road
three years ago, and O’Brien is now celebrating her one year anniversary at this location.
“Businesses that go together, grow together,” says Palmer. “Fresh Flower Bar is the ideal
on-site partner for the services we offer here, and continues our mission to help make your
outdoor living space an extension of your home.” Click here to see a complete guide to all of
ODL’s services & offerings.
ODL and Fresh Flower Bar share a unique, synergistic “root-to-table” partnership. Palmer and
his team plant and grow some of the flowers that O’Brien uses in her instagram-worthy designs,
arrangements, and workshops.
What began out of the back of a pick-up truck 25 years ago, Outdoor Design & Living is now a full-service landscape design-and-build company with a nursery and retail businesses, located on nearly two acres of land in the Greenfield Hill section of Fairfield. “We want you to have fun in your yard,” explains Palmer. “Often, after we install a customer’s patio, outdoor lighting, pool, and kitchen, we continue our collaborations offering furniture and shade solutions,” he says.
“Our goal is to show you how to fall in love with your whole outdoor area. After all, it is a natural extension of your home and can be another great living space.”
