The Meaningful Floral Arranging Workshop 

Friday, May 10, 2024 11:30 AM 
Saturday, May 11, 2024 1:00 PM
Aroma Coffee Co. 33429 Redmond-Fall City Rd SE, Fall City, WA 98024
Mother's Day represents a beautiful and happy time for many, but for some, it can stir feelings of loss, sadness, or exclusion. For this special event, we encourage you not only to invite your mother, daughter, dearest mom friend, or mother-figure along to share this experience, but also consider reaching out to that friend who has recently lost a child or their mother or grandmother, who may be quietly struggling to conceive, who has not had the opportunity to experience motherhood, or who is experiencing a strained relationship with their mother or daughter.  This event is for them too. Treat them and yourself to a morning of good company, beautiful blooms, and the instruction of Jess of Cedar House Living as she guides you through making a heartfelt and meaningful flower arrangement using seasonal botanicals by Laura of Joy Blooms Farm.  Botanicals, vase, supplies, and instruction are included in the price. Just swing into the coffee shop to treat yourself to your favorite coffee and baked good and then join us outside on the lawn for the workshop.

Note: In anticipation of a highly-attended event, we are offering this workshop two consecutive days, Friday morning and Saturday afternoon.  This is an inclusive event. All genders and ages are welcomed and encouraged.
