The Gift

What It is: A spot at Ladew Gardens’ new painting party series. Each evening is an event full of creativity and fun; a gathering of friends, food and drink. Under the guidance of a professional artist, participants will each paint a gorgeous scene inspired by Ladew’s renowned gardens. This month’s painting is the Woodland Garden Birdhouse (above). Participants can arrive early to stroll the gardens and are welcome to bring their own snacks and (non-alcoholic) beverages. Alternately, you  can pre-order a $15 picnic dinner from Ladew Cafe, and have everything taken care of for you. Reservations available through Ladew Gardens. $40 members/$45 non-members.

Who It’s Perfect For:

The Aspiring Creative: You know that person in your life who’s always saying they’re ready to quit their desk job and “follow my bliss”? Whether you think such an upheaval would be prudent or not, you can encourage them to at least dip their toes into the creative waters by trying out Ladew’s painting party. It’s the perfect way for them to feel like they’re dedicating some time to themselves with no need to quit their day job.

Retirees: So many folks just can’t wait to retire; and yet, sometimes all of that new found freedom can be daunting. How do you actually fill up your days, stay social, and pursue all of those interests that work always kept you from? Brushes and Blooms is the perfect opportunity, because it’s one-night-only (unless of course you want to come back every month)  and offers a fun night out that will still have you home in time to get a good night’s sleep before the next day’s adventures.
