About this Event
The day before (the oft-dreaded) Valentine’s Day has come to be known as a day for "ladies celebrating ladies,” and this event is all about showering yourself and your gal-pals with love, support, flowers, and chocolate!
Join the Women of Culture community for 2 hours full of flowers & chocolates sure to wipe away any pre-V day (or general winter) blues.
First, you will learn the basics of flower arranging and make a valentine's-inspired bouquet (for yourself or your favorite gal pal) from Florist Elise Bernhardt of FleurElise. Elise brings her deep love & knowledge of dance, architecture, and site-specific art to the art of floral design. Her classes are highly interactive and provide a framework of design principles that students can use forever. You will leave not only having learned a new life skill but also having created a flower arrangement that looks like a work of art!
Then, sample some delicious treats from the upmarket chocolate boutique COCOA during a mini-chocolate tasting with the company's founder, Pepe Di Giacomo. All in "a modern, sleek and luxurious rooftop bar... redesigned during 2020... that now looks more beautiful than ever," (the Rooftop Guide).
"This is glitzy Manhattan à la “Sex and the City"—a warm, dimly lit indoor lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows and spectacular views, " says CN Traveler.
Especially during this crazy time in the world, it is more important than ever that we take time to care for ourselves and celebrate our girlfriends, and this event is designed to help you do just that!
All tickets include flower arranging class & supplies (flowers & vase) and mini chocolate tasting, rooftop views and plenty of time for bonding with your favorite galentines.
