We finally had a day that felt a little bit like spring this week. But it was still chilly and cold when I headed to Macy’s last week for their Secret Garden Flower Show. Luckily all the floral displays inside helped give a glimpse of spring to come.
Big flower arrangements from different flower shops in Boston were scattered throughout the store. They were high drama and I loved it.
Macy’s lined up several events to celebrate, but the highlight was having a lunch & learn with the guys behind The Makers Kit. I am not much of a crafter, so an opportunity for someone to provide me with materials, help, AND lunch is too good to pass up.
When I got there, Mike and Jawn were ready and waiting for the group. I warned them that I was not exactly good at this kind of stuff and they assured me that they make sure their kits are simple and accessible even for the craft-challenged like me. And they were right.
Mike and Jawn started out in clothing boutiques with items from local artists. When they started holding workshops to get the community more involved, they suddenly found themselves in demand in a big way. And it’s not surprising, they’re really nice and funny and guided us through as if we were all old friends instead of a random group of people in a Macy’s. Plus I’ve wanted an indoor herb garden for AGES but haven’t gotten around to doing one. We got instructions on watering and even the chance to snap some pics.
Why yes, that IS me and the boys taking a selfie. You can tell they’ve done this a few times. I, however, come off as a total amateur what with my multiple chins. Holding the camera low so I have to look down? Silly Jess. It’s like you’re new here.
It was a great way to brighten up my lunch hour and I’m sad the guys are way out in San Francisco since we’re all besties now.
I am definitely liking the idea of florals for spring and there were a bunch of floral prints on display to compliment the Secret Garden theme at Macy’s. I want more color and pattern in my wardrobe and florals are so happy, aren’t they? Thanks for the little bit of Spring, Macy’s!
