The Flower Potluck is a celebration of Spring's arrival, bringing new and old friends together to delight in the season's fresh flowers, foliage, and food. We’ll be gathering to learn some simple flower arranging techniques, and to sit at the table amongst fallen petals and cut stems while we enjoy a light Spring-inspired meal.
Come prepared to engage, learn a few new skills, and most importantly, play with nature’s bounty alongside your hosts and other attendees.
Guests are requested to bring a bunch of flowers or greenery to share with everyone (hence, the potluck)—whether from the roadside, the corner store, the backyard, or wild fields: just come with your hands full. The workshop will make use of the collective floral spread for each guest to return home with a new bouquet by the end of the day.
Our theme is inspired by May Day (May 1st), a holiday devoted to welcoming new springtime growth and warmth. Americans traditionally celebrate this day by anonymously leaving small baskets full on flowers on friends’ doorsteps. We hope guests will be inspired to do the same!
Please note, ticket prices are listed in US dollars.

Richard Brittain and Rebekah Nathan are a one part Canadian and one part New Zealand design team. With varied backgrounds in print making, carpentry, photography and working with textiles, they now work together in their beautiful Hawkes Bay home on their design collaboration Bliss in a Teacup. Our inspiration is drawn from Modern design, moody landscapes, summer swimming holes, piles of quilts and witchy women. We work predominantly with wood to create jewellery, home wares and gifts as well as hand printed art and textiles, photography and a touch of illustration.
