SOLD OUT – An Evening of Picking & Flower Arrangement Class

What We Will Experience

As you arrive at the sunflower field, you’re greeted by rows upon rows of vibrant sunflowers, each one boasting its unique and captivating hue. The sunflowers sway gracefully in the breeze, creating a picturesque scene that fills you with joy and excitement.

With 35 color varieties to choose from, you and your fellow participants are in for a treat as you roam through the field, selecting the most beautiful and eye-catching blooms. The anticipation builds as you consider the combinations you’ll use in your sunflower floral arrangement later.

Back at our Truffle Farm events barn creative space, you and your fellow participants gather with your handpicked sunflowers, surrounded by an abundance of foliage and floral supplies. With the guidance of a skilled floral designer, you embark on a two-hour journey of creativity and artistic expression, arranging the sunflowers and other elements into a beautiful masterpiece.

As you immerse yourself in the art of floral arranging, you enjoy the company of like-minded individuals, sharing stories, laughs, and the joy of creating something beautiful together. The ambiance remains soothing and uplifting, with the gentle music continuing to play in the background.

An hour or so into the event, you take a well-deserved break. You’re presented with a choice of coffee, tea, or mulled cider to savor during your break. The warm beverage complements the sunflower-picking experience, comforting you and filling you with contentment.

We will have a charcuterie board, featuring an array of delectable treats. Black Perigord truffle jams add an exquisite touch, elevating the flavors and indulging your taste buds. The honey truffle roasted almonds offer a delightful contrast of sweet and savory, while the assorted truffle tastings take you on a journey of luxurious flavors.

Feeling refreshed and energized, you return to complete your floral arrangement. The vibrant blooms you have chosen reflect your unique taste and personality, ready to be transformed into a stunning sunflower floral arrangement.

By the end of the two hours, you step back to admire your collective creations—a plethora of unique and breathtaking sunflower floral arrangements, each a reflection of its creator’s personality and style. The sense of accomplishment and fulfillment fills the air, and you can’t help but feel grateful for the experience.

As the event draws to a close, you take a moment to cherish the memories and the newfound connections you’ve made with both nature and fellow participants. The event has left you with a lasting sense of tranquility, creativity, and appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us.

Indeed, your day of picking sunflowers, designing floral arrangements, and enjoying delectable treats has been a magical journey, leaving you with cherished memories that will bloom forever in your heart.
