Thank-you again to the lovely people at the Ridgetown Horticultural Society for having me last night! My hands weren't shaking nearly as much this time as the last time I did a demonstration! I'm proud to be a member of a group that is doing so much good for our community. Last spring when I became involved in some small clean-up projects around town, I was surprised at the sense of pride and feeling of ownership I had after taking part. I've had a little hiatus now from contributing, but certainly plan to more now that I am more settled into this new gig!
Pictured above is the Strawberry Chocolate Mint Wreath I made at the meeting last night. I'm excited to be hosting my first workshop tonight to make this wreath with a great group of gals. I think we're going to have a lot of fun! Happy Easter and enjoy your long weekend everyone!

This little Easter Take-Away is coming with me tonight to the Ridgetown Horticultural Society meeting. I was the lucky winner at the March meeting of a shamrock (or oxalis if I really want to be a proper horti!) so I thought I would bring a little something tonight to contribute to the monthly draw. I'm also priveledged to be speaking at tonight's meeting and doing a floral demonstration. I know most of the lovely people at the meeting and yet my guts twist every time I think of getting up in front everyone. Wish me luck!...maybe I should bring my oxalis with me instead of this little goody!

April showers are sprouting spring inspiration at Mocha Violet! We have been spying on the Easter Bunny to steal some trade secrets and have come up with some fabulous Easter Baskets. Potted fresh with Easter lilies, hostas and herbs, these baskets are beautiful indoors and out. Treat yourself or someone you love with a basket full of spring-time goodness!
As Easter approaches, join us for an evening with friends April 21st to make a super scrumptious strawberry chocolate mint wreath. This wreath is a great centre-piece for those hosting an Easter brunch or dinner. It’s fresh, beautiful and smells great too! Space is limited - pre-book by April 15th to reserve your spot!
Where: Mocha Violet
When: April 21st 7pm – 9pm
See you at the Vi!
