Pinterest Party Workshop- Wine Bottle Terrariums

Pinterest_Logo workshop

Have you all discovered Pinterest yet? Whether you are looking for design ideas, doing a bit of party planning, or browsing for tonight's dinner menu, Pinterest has literally thousands of ideas at the touch of a fingertip. We've pulled together a few of our favorite projects to share with you this week. So we hope you will mark your calendars and join us as we kick off our 2013 Winter Workshop series with a special Pinterest Party Workshop.

Pinterest Party Workshop- Wine Bottle Terrariums

Thursday February 7th

6pm - 8pm

Fee: $25 Pre-registration is required

Join us Thursday, Feb. 7th from 6pm 'til 8pm for our Pinterest Party Workshop.  We will be making terrariums out of wine bottles like the one pictured above.  Your $25 class fee includes all you need to take home this re-purposed bottle to add a little sunshine in your winter decor.

Pinterest Party Workshop Add-On Project- Wine Glass Terrarium and/or Sedum Cork Magnets

Additional Fee: $15 each Add-On

And if you are feeling even more creative, we will also be making "wine glass" terrariums and sedum cork magnets (see picture above).  You can add one wine glass and/or 5 cork gardens for an additional $15 each.

This past week, we received a brand new shipment of "baby plants", perfect for creating miniature gardens and terrariums, like the wine bottle terrarium we'll be completing in class. Choose from your favorites during our workshop, and perhaps you'll want to take a few home with you, as well.

We hope to see you all this Thursday evening for our Pinterest Party. Registration is open, so stop by the shop or give us a call. Please let the girls know if you are doing an "add-on" so we can be sure to have plenty of supplies. And of course we will be serving wine and other beverages as well as little nibbles, too. Can't wait to see you all!
