Hope everyone is having a great weekend. This coming week is chock full of fun if you live near Seattle and I wanted to share these fun events. I’m on a big deadline for work until the 7th so I probably won’t be able to attend any of these – I need you all to go so I can live vicariously through your instagrams!
FOOD The Book Larder is hosting two fabulous events this week:
Monday 4/30: Baking In Translation – How to Bake British Without Freaking Out is for anyone who’s tried to use a recipe from British website or cookbook and been flummoxed by strange ingredients or metric measurements. This class is hosted by the wonderful Paola who blogs at Mirror Mirror and I’m sure is going to be super fantastic!
Thursday 5/3: Demonstration with Molly Moon Neitzel – Molly Moon Homemade Ice Cream. Yes, that Molly Moon has a cookbook out. Just, Go.
PRETTY: West Elm Pop Up Flower Shops
The Seattle West Elm is hosting a series of Pop-Up Flower Shops taking place on two upcoming Saturdays from 10am-3pm – May 5 and May 12 (There was an April 28th but I’m remiss is getting this posted!). They have partnered with Marigold and Mint, a beautiful local florist, who will offer advice on how to arrange flowers and have plenty of fresh flowers for purchase. Check out the West Elm Front & Main blog to see all the cities where the flower shops are popping up!
GARDEN Olympic View Elementary Plant Sale
The Elementary School in our neighborhood hosts an annual fundraising plant sale, and its next weekend. Its a pretty good one, and we know a lot of the kiddos who go to this school so if you’re in the neighborhood pay them a visit. And let us know you’re coming, we can pop down and say hello!
