An elegant evening workshop celebrating local flowers

Join Bloom & Bramble's Farmer/Florist, Jess Bourgeois, at Toys with Love's beautiful party space in Chester for a true "Farm to Vase" floral design experience! Learn how to create this lush compote arrangement. No prior floral design experience is necessary, Jess will walk you through the design process step-by-step, and you'll go home with an on-trend arrangement you'll love! 

The flowers you'll be using to create your arrangement are all Bloom & Bramble's own locally-grown flowers! You can expect to be designing with several varieties of zinnias, sunflowers, cosmos, snapdragons, lisianthus, and dahlias - in addition to eucalyptus and accent blooms. 

(Note: We cannot control mother nature, so please understand that while we'll try our best, we cannot guarantee what flower varieties you'll be using. We promise that you'll have a colorful assortment of blooms to work with!)

In addition to the floral design, Jess will also be teaching attendees how to make a hidden mechanic that goes inside the vase to provide structure and support to your flowers, and give it that dramatic look. Many arrangements use floral foam to give pieces shape & structure, but floral foam isn't biodegradable and is made with substances that are harmful to people and the environment. You'll learn a fantastic reusable alternative!

Toys with Love is setting the stage for an elegant affair, complete with crystal stemware! Bring a friend, your favorite beverage, and light fare to snack on if you wish. While alcohol is permitted, please enjoy responsibility with the knowledge that you'll be working with shears and wire. Toys with Love will provide glasses, plates, silverware, and napkins. Bloom & Bramble will supply all the floral tools you'll need.  We're looking forward to having you join us for a fun evening celebrating local blooms!
