A Cupples o' Blooms 

Most of the blossoming flora is deep in its winter slumber now, but there are still splashes of color about if you know where to look. Rooms in Bloom, the annual floral display at the Samuel Cupples House on the Saint Louis University campus (3673 West Pine Mall; 314-977-2666 or, is one of the most likely locations. Each year, area florists are challenged to decorate one room of the house with a seasonally-appropriate display. Always in Bloom, Botanicals Design Studio, Troy Flower Shop, Walter Knoll Florist and Wolf's Flower Shop answered the call this year, and you can be certain that the Cupples House is now a winter wonderland of color and warmth. Rooms in Bloom is open Thursday through Sunday (December 6 through 9; hours vary, visit the website for a complete schedule) and admission is free. However, donations of a new or gently used article of winter clothing are being collected for the St. Francis Xavier College Church help center; why not bring something along with you in the spirit of the season?
