June is the season for flowers, whether it be a bundle for the recent graduate or a bouquet made for walking down the aisle. One of the area’s newest floral shops, Bouq Box Flowers, is ready for all occasions. “June is typically part of wedding season but there are so many other events we do,” explains Peter Sadler, a London native who opened Bouq Box in Burr Ridge with business partner Lizzie Zimmer in early February. “Preppy-type color arrangements are very popular this time of year with light blues, lime green, pink, and whites.” Zimmer, who grew up in Hinsdale and attended Hinsdale Central High School, is working with Sadler to help customers experience what they call the “Love of Giving.” With more than 30 years of experience between them and an infectious passion for floral design and beautiful gifts, they are destined for success. Bouq Box Flowers is open seven days a week at 440 Village Center Drive in Burr Ridge, 630-560-0955, bouqboxflowers.com.
Summer in the Park
There’s nothing quite like Hinsdale in the summertime. The beautiful Burlington Park is home to several of our favorite summer events, starting the season off right with a two-day Fine Arts Festival. Now entering its 44th year, more than 125 artists participate in this free show, running 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 10 and June 11. A few days after that marks the beginning of the Uniquely Thursday music summer concert series in the park, which kicks off on Thursday, June 15. Bring a blanket and enjoy the music every Thursday evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Burlington Park is at 30 East Chicago Avenue, between Garfield and Washington Streets.
