Happy May! That means Mother’s Day is soon, and we have a beautiful way to celebrate with Mom – a magnolia wreath class with Erin Weston of Weston Farms.
On Saturday, May 11th, join us for the morning class and make your very own lush, full circle magnolia wreath. A light lunch is included, so bring a friend or Mom to make it a memorable time together. Class starts at 10am and tickets are $150 with limited space. Click here to get your tickets.
In the afternoon class, from 2pm – 3:30pm, you’ll make the famous Parris magnolia Bowtie swag. Perfect for the table, above a piece of art, or as a gift to mom on Mother’s Day. Tickets are $50 and available here.
Did you know these magnolia pieces will last for up to a year, sometimes longer?! That means you will enjoy them for all the seasons. Maybe you’ll tuck some fresh seasonal flowers in amongst those velvety leaves, or a bit of sparkly ribbon for Halloween and Christmas. The possibilities are endless!
It feels good to make something with your hands, and as a mom, a hand-made gift is so much more special. We hope to see you at one of these fun-filled classes!
And when you visit the Southeastern Designer Showhouse & Gardens, snap a photo in front of Weston Farms magnificent magnolia wall! Get details on this ever-popular spring showhouse here .
Happy Cinco de Mayo to all of our friends out there! Although many of us see this as a wonderful excuse to enjoy some of our favorite Mexican inspired food and drinks, Cinco de Mayo is, of course, rooted in a rich history, which we all should take a moment to learn.
If you’re looking forward to a very special “Taco Tuesday” dinner tonight, and you enjoy guacamole, have we got a recipe for you… Chipolte’s previously very secret guacamole recipe to be precise. We’re surprised to see no surprising ingredients, but we imagine just using the best and freshest ingredients are what make Chipolte’s so special.
Let us know if you give it a try and how it stacks up to three green stuff available at our favorite neighborhood chain burrito shop!
If you’re searching for the ideal guacamole vessel, look no further than all of the fabulous R. Wood Studio ceramics currently available in-store at steve mckenzie’s – our current display is a virtual rainbow of rich hues; and there’s sure to be something for everyone! These beautiful pieces will serve far beyond today’s Cinco de Mayo holiday, and if you’re still on the search for something for Mother’s Day (this Sunday!), these would be a lovely gift option… Along with the other top Mother’s Day gifts we detailed in a blog post last week.
We hope you all enjoy a festive and safe Cinco de Mayo today!
