The Denver Botanic Gardens & Dale Chihuly

Taking a trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens not only revitalizes your mind and spirit, but can also help with reconnection for different levels of relationships. It’s not hard to relax and admire the beauty surrounding you with someone else!

We last saw the Chihuly Exhibit a few years ago in Grand Rapids, Michigan, at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park; when we heard it was coming to Denver, we could hardly wait, remembering how beautiful it was in one of our home towns.

As an added bonus, from now until November 30th, you can check out the amazing Chihuly exhibit at our very own Denver Botanic Gardens.

Steve and I went with two other couples after work this past week, and stayed until close. It was incredible to watch the transition from day to night and the affect it had on the glass. Different reflections in the water, different captured light within the pieces, etc. Definitely go in the early evening and stay until close at 9 pm in order to watch the glass transform into almost-different installments!

We captured SO MANY great pictures from the exhibit and plan on becoming members so that we can go back as many times as we want until the end of November. Check out our journey through the Chihuly exhibit and our transition from day to night.
