May Day Baskets with Camryn Lane Florals

  • The Nest

In an attempt to reinvigorate a lovely tradition of the past, The Nest invites you to join us in making May Day baskets and spreading some much needed positivity to our friends, coworkers and neighbors.  

Event details:
  1. Hand make flower baskets using repurposed materials and flowers from Camryn Lane Florals on Sunday, APRIL 30th at The Nest.  (Each basket is priced 'per piece' based on stem and container selection).  

  2. Hang them on the door of your friends and neighbors on Monday, MAY 1st.  
  3. Knock and run away (or stay and give them a hug...your choice)!

JOIN US IN SPREADING SIMPLE JOY THIS SPRING!

MAY DAY BASKET HISTORY LESSON:

Having roots in Gaelic traditions from the 1600's, May Day has historically been a Northern Hemisphere celebration filled with flower crowns, maypole ribbons, dancing and the welcoming of Summer.  Celebrated on May 1st, the tradition spread around Europe and The America's; each culture embracing and morphing the day into a seasonal celebration of their own, recognizing the deities of Beltraine and Flora The Goddess of Flowers, or simply spreading happiness and joy for the coming of a new season.

Late 19th century America modified this tradition to include gathering flowers at the end of April's showers, arranging them in pretty paper along with some gifts and candies, and hanging them on the doors of friends and neighbors as a way of welcoming them into warmer weather.  They would hang the basket, knock and run away!  A more positive and uplifting form of doorbell ditching!!

Professional Photos with Mom

  • The Nest

Join us at The Nest, the Saturday before Mother's Day and get a professional photo of your mom or with your mom. She’s usually the one behind the camera, making sure everyone else is recorded in time, so why not put her in the spotlight for once!   I thought my mom would live forever, and when she passed, I always regretted not getting more photos of her and with her. In addition to photos there will be storewide discounts for Mom!  So, head on in for some last minute gift shopping, or simply to just spend some quality time with your mom!

FREE with DONATION OPTION.  All photos will be displayed in a web album following the event and you can purchase directly from your own computer or smart phone.

Because soooooo many of you expressed an enthusiastic interest in our Getting Dirty On Valentine's Day Terrarium Class but weren't able to make it because it was sold out or there was a time conflict, we have decided to do another one!

This Terrarium Building Workshop will be done in conjunction with The Stem from The Basement just to change it up a little. Get your green thumb ready for St. Patrick's Day!

Stop by early to enjoy a juice from Rawbry, a salad from Chomp, a coffee from Global or get a little retail therapy from Kalifornia Jean BarPantry Products or any of their other fine establishments! Hope to see you there!
