Is there anything better than Flowers, Wine and Friends? Normally I’d say no, but in this case, there actually is… I’m talking the BESTEST of friends, amazing rosé cocktails and the prettiest DIY flower bouquets you ever did see! Brace yourself, I’ve got a load of pictures to share with you! 🙂
*A Big thank you to FiftyFlowers.com and Personal Wine for partnering with me for this event!*
Lets start with the location and set up for my little shindig!
The place – my In Laws carport.
The set up – 2 tables covered in vintage sheets, decorated with bits and pieces from my home decor. Hubby made me the “farmhouse” benches (LOVE them!!). Also had a few smaller tables set up and covered with vintage sheets for the foor and wine. That backdrop? Yarn hand dyed and tassels made by me, tied to an 8 foot poll and hung from the rafters of the carport. I knew that the carport was going to need something special to make it a little more pretty and a little less practical. When enjoying Flowers, Wine and Friends, one must have a lovely spot to do it in. Since the hubby made me several farmhouse benches from some reclaimed wood we had, I used a spare bench to store/display all the pretty flowers I recieved from fiftyflowers.com.
The food: I grabbed a few random snack things from the grocery store and gave Brandless a try for a few other things too (I’m offically a fan! The Coconut Lemon Creme Cookies and Olive Oil & Sea Salt Hummus Crisps were huge hits!)
The wine: Personal Wine sent me a some bottles of their house label rosé. I served it as a DIY spritzer and boy was it delicious! Allowing my guests to add their own cocktail ingredients let them fix it to their specific tastes. We mixed lemonade, the wine, frozen pureed strawberries cubes and a little grenadine – the perfect spring time wine spritzer to sip with friends!
The flowers and bouquet making – The whole point of this little get together was to get creative and let our inner florist out! We had a little girl chat, drank a few cocktails and then dove into playing with the prettiness! It was fun to see how each of our own styles and preferences came in to play as we selected flowers and created our arrangements.
As far as I’m cincerned we could all get full time jobs as florists because our bouquets all turned out BEAUTIFUL! That might have a little something to do with the quality and amazingness of the flowers we were given to play with… but I’m gonna stick with us being florists 😉
All in all it was a marvelous day, and I can’t wait to host another event or get together for my gal pals again soon!
When was the last time you enjoyed some Flowers, Wine and Friends?
