Speaking about coming together and seeing change…we’ve been challenged to come up with 100 warm winter coats for the struggling young adults of the Seattle University District at ROOTS Young Adult Shelter. We figured you were the kind of folks we could count on to help that challenge become a reality. How about this, you bring in a practical, gently used, adult sized, warm winter coat for our coat drive…and we’ll reward you with 10%* off one regularly priced item! We’re sure if you look around the house, you’ll find a hearty yet cozy, hooded warm winter coat that you don’t really use anymore…let’s get together and help make someone’s winter just a bit warmer this year. Helping others is the best way to warm our own hearts. This show is all about getting cozy…right? A happy heart is the best kind of cozy there is :)

Fifty Years (or more!) of Wedded Bliss at Gatherings!
 
Ike and Joey Celebrating 72 YEARS of Marriage!

Ike and Joey Celebrating 72 YEARS of Marriage!

Gatherings was blessed to be able to share it’s space with many Lynden area couples who are celebrating 50 years (or more) of wedded matrimony this year!

Vintage tea style decor for the special couples.

Vintage tea style decor for the special couples.

We were recently very happy to be able to donate our space to the local Lynden Community Senior Center to host a special gathering for those celebrating 50+ years of marriage. The event was very well attended and was enjoyed by all. Many local businesses were generous to donate their time and talents with a luncheon, wedding cakes, decor, doorprizes and volunteerism. We think these types of gatherings are what make our local community great!

A wonderful turnout for the special occasion.

A wonderful turnout for the special occasion.

Many in attendance had never had the chance to see our space used in a gathering atmosphere; what a treat! It was fun for us to hear all about how much they enjoyed their time here that day…hearing each other’s stories… while listening to wedding style music performed by local volunteers. What a wonderful community we are a part of.

Thanks so much to all who attended and made this Gathering possible!

Luncheon Food: The Green Barn

Sponsors: Lynden Manor & Meadow Greens

A Gatherings Photo Shoot. Part Three: The Ceremony
 

Part Three: The Ceremony

Are you ready for the ceremony to start? You’ve found your free parking spot. You’ve come in either the stately front steps, or through the imported Italian wrought iron garden gates. You’ve deposited your gift in the proper spot and signed the guest book. Lovely music is wafting through the air & lights are twinkling. Flowers, tables and chairs await the celebration soon to come…

Why don’t you come upstairs for a charming spot to sit and witness this beautiful union…

She enters the room and everyone stands to see her in her finest hour…everything glows from the candle light…especially the bride.

…and there he waits for her, his bride.

What a lovely atmosphere. Clean lined, simple…yet charming. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy this special intimate occasion.

Before you know it, they are wed! Congratulations are issued all around and flower bouquets are tossed. Maybe you catch it…maybe it’s your turn to plan an intimate Gathering of your own?

They genuinely look so happy and as the party continues on, they slink off together…

What a lovely day it has been. A huge occasion in a cozy atmosphere. A cozy Gathering of family, friends and co-workers. Everyone coming together to celebrate this loving couple…and it all started with a simple booking.

Stay tuned for the next installment:

Part Four: The Booking SALE!

A Gatherings Photo Shoot. Part Two: The Meet Cute
 

Part Two: The Meet Cute

We’re back with the second photo-shoot installment of why Gatherings by Grandiflora is the perfect place for you to host an intimate wedding or soiree…

You’re probably wondering…what’s a “meet cute”??? Some of you may know…but here’s the basic definition:

“Used in film, a “Meet Cute” is an amusing or charming first encounter between two characters that leads to the development of a romantic relationship between them.”

Frankly, we can’t imagine a more “meet cute” situation than this!

Our garden area is perfect for photo ops. The light is almost always beautiful…and when the right music is drifting on the breeze from our state of the art audio system…you’ll get lost in the charm that can only be enhanced by the rhythm of the waterfall trickling into the pond.

There you have it…the meet cute! We have the perfect photogenic venue, the flowers, the bride and the groom….so let’s get this ceremony going!

Stay tuned for the next installment…

Part Three: The Ceremony
