Pollen is excited to be a part of the 2011 Helios Bash, held by the Society for Urban Nature (SUN), the auxiliary board of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, on Friday, August 19th. The evening will feature an open bar, sustainable cuisine, music, tours of the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven, animal demonstrations, and a wonderful silent auction and raffle.
All proceeds benefit the Nature Museum’s TEENS program.
Attend the 2011 Helios Bash and you will have the chance to bid on a private, hands-on floral design workshop for 6, taught by Lynn Fosbender of Pollen. The introductory two-hour class will cover flower selection, cut flower care, and the basics of floral design. You and your friends will each design a seasonal, low and lush arrangement, suitable for a dining room table centerpiece.
With this workshop under your belt, you’ll be the friend who brings the centerpiece to dinner parties! Well, unless the dinner party is with the 5 friends you bring to the workshop–then you’ll have to fight over who gets to provide the centerpiece.
The workshop includes instruction and all materials, and is valued at $750.
The floral design workshop will be offered as part of the silent auction at Society for Urban Nature’s Helios Bash, held Friday, August 19th at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. Tickets and more information are available at http://naturemuseum.org/sun/
