Chihuly art glass sculptures at Frederick Meijer Gardens

There are two permanent Chihuly works of art that on display at Frederick Meijer Gardens.  Dale Chihuly, the most sought-after artist in the world working primarily in glass created a dazzling ceiling sculpture in the Taste of the Gardens Café inside Frederick Meijer Gardens.  This sculpture is apply named Lena’s Garden in honor of Lena Meijer, the sculpture, comprised of dozens of individual blown-glass pieces, spans the ceiling in a spectrum of colors from cool greens, cobalt blues and purples to brilliant oranges, yellows and reds that happily run along the cafeteria ceiling to delight all who enter. When you walk out of the cafe look up and to your right.  A beautiful chihuly chandelier hangs from the ceiling where natural daylight dances through the glass.  As I stood gazing at both of these magnificent pieces I imagined how hard and nerve wracking it would be to install one of these fragile works of art.  Our guests who stay with us at Prairieside Suites often talk over breakfast about how much they enjoyed their afternoon over at Frederik Meijer Gardens. So on your next visit to Grand Rapids, MI discover the beauty and splendor of the botanic garden and internationally acclaimed sculpture park.  Then when you feet are sore return back to our bed and breakfast for a relaxing soak in one of our over sized jacuzzi tubs for two!

Even if art and sculptures are not your thing, Grand Rapids still has plenty to offer- including lots of sporting events, night clubs, and excellent restaurants.  While you are staying with us at Prairieside Suites, take a gander at the ongoing list of events that we print weekly located in our guest gift and  communication area.

Now that you're intrigued and see what great things our nearby city has to offer, go to our website to see current specials, look at our beautiful spa rooms and plan your next romantic get away- you'll be glad you did!  Keep in mind that Prairieside Suites Luxury B&B is a member of the Michigan lake to Lake Bed and Breakfast Association. We’re proud that our inn, along with just 130 others across the state, consistently meets the high levels of quality, safety, cleanliness, professionalism and comfort required to join the association and to stay a member.

Shoes & Purses!

One can never have too many purses or shoes. But an abundance of shoes and purses can also be overwhelming if not stored properly. I want to share my solution to this problem with you so that you can enjoy your accessories as much as I do mine! I have always had a weight problem but quickly realized that shoes & purses always fit. This is when the buying began!  I also love color and coordinating my shoes and purse with my outfit. These two traits combined have found me with a plethora of shoes and purses for each season, in many different styles and colors. Here is the solution to my organizing conundrum: First, you will need to clear a deep shelf in your closet and line your purses on the floor in rows- one for colder seasons and one for warmer seasons. Now start grabbing shoes and put them inside the coordinating purse. Then, put the shoe-stuffed purses on the shelf with the ones you are using "now" in front. The key to coordinating your purse with your outfits is that you have to make it easy so that it takes 2 minutes. I have a purse organizer and all I do is pick it up and plop it into the next purse. Purses and shoes are great accessories when you can coordinate them with your outfit and even better when it doesn't take a lot of time to do it! When you come to stay at Prairieside Suites, bring your coordinating purse stuffed with matching shoes and get ready to go on the town and have some fun! Currently in the Grandville area is the ongoing ArtPrize Exhibit. ArtPrize has created seven exhibition centers as starting points for exploring the five neighborhoods where art is displayed. These seven exhibition centers are: Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, Grand Rapids Art Museum, Grand Rapids Public Museum, Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, Women’s City Club, Cathedral Square and Grand Valley State University Pew Campus. For the duration of ArtPrize (through October 10th), admission to places that normally require it is free. Triple bonus- you get to visit the venue, see spectacular art, and it's free! Come, experience my world! Cheri

Centerpiece Floral Arranging

One of my favorite things is to take a walk in my gardens and imagine the floral arrangement I can make for our guests to enjoy at the breakfast table. Seasonal changes provide exceptional opportunities to create new floral combinations. As I search the gardens, I'm driven by the joy I believe the flowers will give our guests while they eat and visit with one another. I look for opportunities to prune and reshape the plants and bushes while I create the arrangement. My inspiration for this pictured floral arrangement that recently graced the breakfast table came when I noticed a branch on a rose bush that was lurching out into the path. I decided to use that branching rose as the central focus of the arrangement, pruning the bush in the process and giving the arrangement its height. Next I looked for hosta leaves I thought would be perfect for fanning around the lowest portion of the floral arrangement. I then used white Asiatic lilies to accent, trimming the center so as not to shed the yellow pollen on the fine white linen tablecloth that graces our dining table for guests. Finally, I completed the arrangement with hydrangeas from two different sides of the yard so I could have both blue and pink blossoms from the differing acidity levels of the soil. With the finished floral arrangement in place, all we need to complete this picture is breakfast and voila! You have the start of a perfect romantic Michigan get-away! Can you see yourself sitting down to this wonderful breakfast with your sweetheart beside you? What a way to start off your beautiful day.  And if you think our breakfast looks good, wait until you see our over-sized whirlpool fireplace suites. You'll be ready to eat breakfast and then go back to your room for a nap in our luxurious king size beds with luxury linens! Come take advantage of our sizzling summer specials while the gardens are at their peak. Come, experience my world! Cheri
