Once in a while, you see and feel things that completely resonate with your soul!
Years ago when I first started seeing farm-picked, organic flowers in loose, whimsical styles, my heart soared. I fell in love! I started following one particular floral designer and flower farmer, Erin Benzakein of Floret Farm, via every social media avenue possible!
Erin has been a pioneer in the “local-flower renaissance." We all know about farm-to-table food, but Erin inspires us to take the flowers from the field straight to the vase and skip those flowers that have had a long airplane ride from South America.
This week, a small group of like-minded folks will gather at Floret Farm in Skagit Valley, Washington for a three-day, floral intensive workshop with Erin and her wonderful staff.
We will pick flowers from the fields at Floret Farm and assemble these beauties with branches, edibles, and vines to make beautiful art and to learn from one of the very best floral designers and farmers in the business.
To top it all off, on the last day, we will make centerpieces and decorate the barn for a little late summer dinner soiree, which of course, will just be a short ride from the farm to the table.
Erin was one of Martha Stewart’s “American Made Winners” in 2014.
