Enjoy a southern sunset on the Cape Fear River while creating a gorgeous centerpiece out of summer blooms! Join Alice’s Table at a social flower arranging workshop at Board & Barrel, located in the newly renovated Hotel Ballast along the Wilmington Riverwalk. Spend a summer evening sipping libations, catching up with friends and learning something new! At the end of the evening, you’ll take home a fresh flower arrangement with tips and tricks for your farmer’s market bouquets! Grab your seat at the table for beautiful blossoms at B&B, offering all of the sights and flavors of the city.
Guests will enjoy a wine tasting and 1 glass of wine included with ticket purchase. Additionally, Board & Barrel’s mixologist will provide a signature craft cocktail demonstration and our specialty cocktail will be available for $8. The restaurant will offer a 10% discount on food to attendees if they check-in on Yelp and leave a review with pictures.

What To Expect
The flower arranging can take anywhere from one to two hours, depending on the complexity and format of the arrangement. Alice’s Table provides aprons for you to wear for the duration of the event. Working with flowers can be messy, so make sure to wear something you won’t mind getting a little dirty.
What Should I Bring?
You don’t need to bring anything out of the ordinary with you - we provide the flowers, vases, and tools you will need to create your arrangement. Food and beverage will be available for purchase.

The Kure Beach coquina outcrop is a unique feature on the North Carolina coast and combing the rocks and tidepools for washed up treasure is a favorite pastime for my family. My best find? A Great White Shark’s tooth, it’s huge! When I’m not exploring the shoreline, you can find me in the local library, enjoying the fascinating history around Wilmington or practicing Pilates.
