We are excited to spend a day of flowers with you, preparing for the Thanksgiving Holiday!
Your day on Wimbee Creek Farm begins with our gathering at the Flower Barn for morning coffee and freshly baked coffee cake. We’ll meet and greet and share stories of the farm’s history, flowers and friendship, as we prepare for the day ahead. Designated work stations will be set up so that you can be comfortable to enjoy the day’s activities.
We”ll go on a walking tour of the farm’s flower production areas. We’ll share our current gardening trends and ideas with you as we talk about annuals, perennials, garden roses, winter production and more.
Returning to the Flower Barn, we’ll launch into a description of the flowers we’ll have for you to design with and provide a design demonstration with instruction into our tried and true techniques for success. Then we will unleash you to create your own floral design centerpiece for your Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. You may bring your own special container or we will have a vase provided for you.
Lunch may be the best part! You will enjoy a mostly vegetarian meal (sometimes we have pickled shrimp on the menu), and we are happy to take requests for special dietary considerations. Our menu is “farm to table” utilizing elements from our garden and our chickens eggs as much as possible. Lunch takes place under the oak trees by the water on the farmhouse back porch. We are so happy to have you join us there as you share community with each other.
All tools, flowers and containers are included for you to create your own floral arrangement to take home with you. Again, feel free to bring a special vase for your table if you’d like.
*Please be prepared for time outdoors with comfortable shoes, a hat and sunscreen and also please inform us of any dietary restrictions or other special needs that we can accommodate for you in the notes section at checkout.
