Mother's Day Gifts + Garden Tribe Giveaway

Hi Guys! Remember that time I practically wrote a love letter to Baylor Chapman about The Plant Recipe Book? Well, that very same day the nice folks at Garden Tribe emailed me with great news. I don't, in fact, have to wait till my next trip to San Francisco to take a class from Baylor. They offer an online class called Party Plants, (pictured above) taught by Baylor herself. Best news ever.

Because they're so kind, they let me take the class for free! It was about 30 minutes long, and came with a bonus class called Party Gifts, which inspired all of my Mother's Day gifts this year (pictured in this post). During the class, I learned several mind-blowingly simple tricks to make planting and caring for my plants so much easier. And I watched Baylor put together a sensationally cool centerpiece that sits right on the table. She also demonstrates how to moss-wrap plants, which opens up all sorts of gifting and displaying possibilities. The only problem is that I just can't get enough.

I took my two younger kids out shopping today…first to my favorite consignment shop looking for new containers and then to my new favorite nursery--Millcreek Gardens. I'm so excited to have such a great resource close by. Seriously, if you're local, check them out. They have everything you need to make the incredible centerpiece Baylor demonstrates in the class. I'm so excited. I'm currently scheming up a dinner party just so I have an excuse to make a centerpiece.

Garden Tribe is giving away a free Party Plants class to one of you! Enter for yourself, or give it to your mom for Mother's Day! And if you don't win, definitely think about giving the class to your Mama for her special day. It makes a fantastic gift…you don't have to ship it, and she doesn't have to put it away somewhere. Everybody wins.

I'm going to make this giveaway a quick one, so I can notify the winner before Mother's Day. That way you'll have the option of giving the class to your mom. But I wouldn't blame you if you want to keep it for yourself. ;) The giveaway closes at 10:00 pm Saturday, and I'll notify the winner Saturday night.

I am always wanting to learn more about plants and how to decorate with them.
