Winter Terrarium & High Tea WorkshopNovember 29, 2016
This past weekend we invited guests to a Sunday fun day of crafting and treats at our very first Whimsical Workshop! The ladies had no idea of what we had in store for them: welcome drinks of pink and sparkling blush tables decorated with craft supplies and bubble glass terrariums, even a personalized touch of their names in calligraphy! Their eyes lit up as they took their seats in front of the fire place, eager to begin and put their creative skills to work!
Shortly after some creative guidance, you could hear a crescendo of excitement as the ladies exchanged ideas and giggles and busily built their winter terrariums. Each one was as unique as its creator!
After everyone finished their terrariums, it was tea time! With a quick flip, the tables were decorated with eclectic teaware and tiered stands of delectable treats.
Savory bites (mini croissant cucumber dill sandwiches, smoked salmon arugula on crackers, avocado egg salad sandwiches, turkey with provolone cheese and basil pesto sandwiches, as well as refreshing lemon-lime mint-infused water) were prepared by the J’adore team.
A gorgeous sponge shortcake with passion fruit cream cheese and yummy desserts (meringue kiss cookies, vanilla madelines, earl grey shortbread cookies and mini mint chocolate cupcakes) were provided by talented dessert stylist Cici Nguyen-Wong.
We had a playful photo shoot with everyone to capture their masterpieces before ending the workshop with a group activity – a colorful balloon drop to be exact – which we thought was a fun way to give out some prizes! Whomever lucky enough to find the festive jingle balloons received a take home gift box of Cici’s desserts! Congratulations again to our winners!! We hope you will enjoy them!
Proceeds from this workshop’s ticket sales goes towards Delton Elementary School’s Gift of Giving Program to provide their students with a gift of daily care essentials. We want to thank all of our guests again, and give a special shout out to those who brought additional items to contribute. You are all so wonderful!! Together we can make a difference!
It was a lovely day spent with new and familiar friends in our warm cozy home. Thank you for joining us and we look forward to welcoming you back for another workshop soon!
