Wow! It’s already September! This year certainly is flying by, and Lilygrass is excited for fall! First of all, it’s now officially football season! Stop on by the shop and show your support for you favorite college team with a themed arrangement for the biggest fan in your life! What a great way to get some playful banter going at the office! We’d love to help you design the perfect display of team spirit.
And we have some exciting news! We officially held our very first Make-and-Take Class the last Thursday of August! It was a royal blast! We made new friends, and we made beautiful arrangements – all for only $35! This time we decided to let our participants do a “freestyle” sort of class where we let our guests be the designers. Instead of teaching others how to do a specific type of bouquet, we opened up our coolers and let each person pick what type of design they wanted to create.
They chose from our gorgeous selection of fresh cut flowers! They all chose wonderful blooms and created some real masterpieces! We walked everyone through some basic design steps like choosing larger stems as the focal points and how to arrange greenery, and then we stepped back and watched our new friends get to work! We served a delicious Dark Horse red wine blend and a Chateau Michelle Pinot Grigio, which paired nicely with fruit kabobs, Neiman Marcus dip, and Nutella acorns! We even served some of our gift shop’s "For Tea’s Sake" smooth Earl Grey tea! It was a fantastic evening full of good eats and creative genius! And no one had any previous floral designing experience. It is strictly for fun! People of all ages, abilities, and genders are welcome to attend! (Just be sure to have an ID present if you want to partake in the adult beverages!)
On top of a unique arrangement that they each created, our guest designers also got to enjoy 20% off our entire store! We gave them ample time to peruse our merchandise, and many took advantage of the opportunity to get some early Christmas presents and decorations! What a neat deal!
Overall, the night was a roaring success, and we are excited to offer these Make-and-Take classes on the last Thursday of every month!
Sign up today for our September class on the 29th! We will be incorporating everyone’s favorite gourd – the pumpkin – with our next design!
Thanks for reading, fans! Come see us today, and let us help you forge the most fantastic fall yet! Until next time!
