Details & Schedule | A glimpse at La Petite Bloom: Holiday Hosting

Pop the's the holiday season! Join us for our half day workshop, just a few days before Thanksgiving, to get into the holiday spirit! Spend a few hours creating beauty together, while learning new skills or honing old ones, this one-of-a-kind La Petite Bloom Workshop is meant to give you tons of inspiration with hands-on learning. We are thrilled to welcome back Jennifer Haf of Bloom Floral Design, who will be demonstrating a holiday flower arrangement, then helping YOU create your very own, just in time to grace your Thanksgiving tablescape. You will learn hosting tips and have a few different table setting demonstrations, along with inspiration + DIY ideas to make your holiday table shine. In our second hands-on session, you will try your hand at calligraphy and hand lettering with Kristin Hussey of Sable & Gray. After practicing your lettering, you'll have time to make custom gift tags for your family and friends for the upcoming season of giving. 

Whether you are a creative industry professional or in a different industry altogether but have a desire to use your creative talents, we want to welcome you to our first Holiday Hosting workshop.

Sable & Gray is a stationery and paper goods company located in Traverse City, Michigan. They specialize in custom wedding invitations featuring hand-painted watercolors and hand-drawn designs. We find the inspiration for our designs in everything from the bride's bouquet to the architectural details of her ceremony location. 

We are excited to have Kristin teaching a watercolor calligraphy session at our Holiday Hosting workshop, complete with demos, practice sketches, all your supplies, and ample time to practice illustration and lettering. Guests will finish this session by making gift tags for their loved ones, in preparation for the upcoming season of gifting!

Bloom believes that flowers are most beautiful in their natural state.  When combined with other blooms in a customized palette, color and texture create a distinctive design that exudes the feeling you wish to create.  BLOOM sources flowers from only the finest growers, sourcing as many flowers as possible locally and domestically including our own specialty cutting gardens.

We are welcoming Jennifer back to teach the floral arranging class of our holiday workshop, where guests will get to see a live demo, choose their blooms at our flower bar, then create their very own Thanksgiving Day centerpiece. The arrangement will be in a neutral palette, featuring whites, greens, blush and peach flowers.
