Guest favorite: Cozy hayrides at a rustic event

Vintage farms and rustic ranches are all the rage for events these days! They're hot because of their sweet charm and familial feel. One of the super-popular spots in Colorado is Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms. Just outside of Denver, this venue is a 700-acre native plant refuge and working farm. The gorgeous gardens and expansive pastures offer the perfect backdrop for any event.

In February, the farm hosted a client appreciation evening - a progressive experience for guests who toured multiple spots on-property, including the historic schoolhouse.

Local caterers created delicious farm-to-table bites, including a custom donut bar!

During the evening, guests took a hay ride between two properties. Weather or Not greeted guests with our tan fleece blankets to make sure their ride was nice and cozy. They were thrilled with the thoughtful touch!

One more highlight of the evening was the fabulous Sparktacular fireworks. A cold-spark machine, these "fireworks" are not hot! Indoors or outdoors, it's the jaw-dropping way to highlight a grand entrance/exit or to add something unique to a stage. Plus, they're surprisingly affordable!


Overall, this event gave guests a true sense of every part of the farm. They exclaimed, "It's so gorgeous here!" and "I can't wait for my guests to experience this. I'm so excited!" We were happy we could help everyone celebrate comfortably.
