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!
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!
