Thursday October 20th

Tuesday October 25th

Teaching our clients how to entertain like a southerner is at the heart and soul of Bloom + Bread. In the south, most rural communities don't have a plethora of restaurants to patronize - so entertaining and dining takes place around our own tables - or at church! The church potluck is truly something that everyone should experience at least once in their lives. Marshmallows are actually considered a major food group by some staunch southern mommas. 

 

On behalf of Bloom + Bread, I invite you to our table. Our team would love to break bread with you and learn all about yours. Let's return to our tables - and make them places of joy, comfort and celebration - albeit ever so messy and chaotic. The perfect meal takes place at your home table, hands clasped in Thanksgiving, with a lovely arrangement of blooms in the center. I hope that you will join us at one of our classes or free events to learn more about southern entertaining. Or better yet, just pop into the shop. You're always welcome. Don't be a stranger.
