Pop-Up Shop & Free Workshop! Go Faux this Friday & Saturday!


This Friday and Saturday January 25th and 26th from 10 AM to 5 PM we will be hosting our next pop up shop with a free workshop right here at Grandiflora ( 719 Grover St. Lynden).


It’s that drab time of the year…don’t deny it…you feel it too. We’re assuming you’ve taken down all the Christmas decor from the holiday season & you’ve cleaned and organized a bit (or a lot…or not at all! LOL!). So now you are just feeling left a little blah. Well, don’t you worry. We have you covered!


Here at Grandiflora we have been working hard to plan an uplifting event that we think you’ll enjoy. It comes at the perfect time to perk up your living space. Plus it’s something fun for you and a friend to do together! More about that in a bit…


First off, this weekend we are featuring a whole bunch of our very popular faux greens (sorry no floral stems this time). We all love having live green plants…but sometimes you just don’t have enough light, experience, or time to care for them. Enter the faux greenery phenomenon. We can’t get enough of these things! They work wherever you place them and often guests can’t tell if they’re faux or real!


We work very hard to find the “best of the best” when it comes to faux succulents, greens and pre-potted plantings. We also try to find the best pricing ever. This weekend we’re filling the store with lots of these affordable goodies for you to chose from. Select pretty containers, hanging pots and accessories to compliment your new faux greens.


On top of all that, we will be hosting a FREE workshop on Saturday the 26th from 1-3 PM.


Come and work with La Von, partner at Grandiflora, main faux greens/floral buyer and ex-fresh floral designer. Also glean from Cheri Bargen, fresh floral designer, floral grower and owner of Eidlewilde Flowers.


Both of these talented ladies will be on hand to assist you in putting together your faux greens arrangement. Feel free to purchase a container of ours, or bring in your own. They can help you figure out how to fill it with lovely greens that you’ll enjoy for years to come!


A few workshop points to remember:

  1. This is a first come first served workshop. We are limited to stock on hand. This means if you want the absolute best selection in greens, be here Friday morning. You can always come back Saturday for the free workshop. Can’t make it Friday? Not to worry, we think we’ve purchased enough quantity to have a great selection on Saturday as well.

  2. The workshop will be located up on the second floor which is not wheelchair accessible.

  3. If you bring a container from home (rather than purchasing one here) be sure it is table-top sized. We will not have supplies for extra large containers. We suggest smaller to medium sized pots, vases, terrariums and glass containers.

  4. Can’t make it for Saturday’s workshop? Feel free to use our workshop tables up on the second floor to play around on Friday. Get creative! We know that many of you love doing your own arrangements…so have fun and experiment!

  5. Although the workshop is free, the basic “potting” supplies will be for sale at a very nominal charge.

  6. If you are unsure of what type of container or greens to choose, take some photos of your space on your phone. Both La Von and Cheri have excellent eyes for design.

  7. Last but not least…remember that whether you come alone or with a great companion…Gathering at Grandiflora with a bunch of like-minded folks is just what the winter weary soul needs!


Not a huge fan of greenery? No worries…we have lots of new jewelry in stock & refreshing home decor items to choose from.


We look forward to seeing you Friday & Saturday!
