I was super excited to host the very first Bloom Series at Create or Die.  An amazing turn-out of kindred spirits there to enjoy the art of flowers, good company and as always, good food…aka – cheese!

“We came as strangers and left as friends.” – this is a phrase that keeps popping into my mind after Create or Die collaborations. The act of creating, learning and ‘breaking bread’ together brings a certain connectedness that we often loose in our overly busy lives. This is what Create or Die gatherings are all about.

“Bloom series is a collaborative project by Jardine Botanic & Lisa Zhu [wanderandscout.com]. It is a monthly gathering of flower arranging, delicious food and good company. All are welcome. It is about meeting new people, learning a little and enjoying an afternoon doing something we think is quite special.” http://bloomseries.com/
