While I was in Aspen one of the boutique owners and I were talking about D.C. and the upcoming National Cherry Blossom Festival Centennial and the talk turned to our mutual mild weather (the topic of weather is always a safe, easy common ground) and how spring had for all intents and purposes, sprung.Â That got me thinking about fresh flowers, the scent of mulch (ew), singing birds, and how I’d have to start dusting off the new season’s wardrobe.Â Really, there’s nothing more of a sign of spring to me than new blooms peaking their sweet heads out of the ground, tentatively at first, then boldly, daring a late frost to take a bite out of them.Â
Apparently, I’m not the only one who loves me a blossoming bud.Â FRESHFARM Markets is hosting a spring inspired event designed to spark ideas for table flower designs on Sunday, March 4th and you and your creative genius are invited.
As you learn and do you can enjoy tasteful samplings of savory bites and sweets provided by Atwaters Bakery and Pastry Chef Tiffany MacIsaac of Neighborhood Restaurant Group and sip Rooibos tea sangria created by Katie Nelson of the Columbia Room.Â Tea and coffee service provided by Laura and Raymond Saba hosts of the Embassy Circle Guest House.
