plants on plants on plants.

SJ Made invited me to set up shop at a plant themed event – PLANTS ON PLANTS ON PLANTS – at Backyard SJ. It was my first time to Backyard SJ. It’s literally situated on a parking lot, but it’s set up to host all kinds of events. In addition to maker pop-ups, they also host movie nights, wellness classes, and crafty workshops. It’s filled with lots of sitting/lounging areas, plants (of course!), and a cafe.

I brought my Feed the Fish co collection of pennants, wall hangings, and flower crowns, and created a more plant-forward display for the event. Here’s the before and after.

I brought samples from my craft workshops, too – felt succulent and flower gardens, wreaths, and memo boards.

And I made some special pennants for the occasion. Please grow!

The crowns were a hit! As were the surprise boxes.

I met some lovely makers and shop owners, too. Natalie of Natalie’s Workshop hosts plant potting workshops and sells mini plants, and Sarah from Fractal Flora brought a plant and pot selection from her shop at Moment SJ. I got some plant goodies from both. And Sarah even picked out some wall hangings and pennants to sell in her shop. Yay!

My friends from Coyote Brush Studios and Hello Silly Friends were also there selling all the plant and nature things!

Fractal Flora led a succulent pumpkin workshop in the outdoor workshop space, too. I wanted to craft with them, but I suppose I was working. 🙂

Thank you to SJ Made and Backyard SJ for having me for this plant-forward event! And thank you to the San Jose community for coming out to support small businesses! Feeling all the plant lady love!
