I apparently missed out on this whole paint and wine night thing that has been going on the past few years. I guess that happens when you leave the country. But thankfully, my sister-in-law (lol, still not used to saying that) had tickets to a Plant Nite so she invited our cousins, Nikki and Jenna and me. All of us had no idea what we were doing, but here is our grand attempt to making those cute succulent planters that you see all over Pinterest.
Picture credits all go to Jenna..so take a look at all these beautiful non-insta-edited photos!
Our Plant Nite was at the Rockhouse Sports Pub & Grill in Livermore, hosted by Ethel-Lynn. They have instructors all over and you can find events in lots of cities, but we had a good time here. They usually host these nights at a bar, restaurant, or winery. For us, they gave us happy hour prices for food and drinks, but being good cheap Chinese girls, we didn’t splurge for the food.😉 It’s super relaxed and you don’t have to talk to the other attendees if you don’t want to, but it’s definitely a nice way to hang out with friends. Rachel had tickets to them so I don’t know how much they really cost, but she got them on Groupon so you might be able to find a good deal. If you do end up going to one in the East Bay, look for Ethel-Lynn’s classes. She’s also an event planner so her decorations are really nice and she takes “Polaroids” for you and your friends for free so you can have a picture to take home with you too.
The materials were all provided in the ticket and it was plentiful. There was so much that you really didn’t know where to start. We were given 3 succulents and a whole lot of dirt. There was a whole station with all types of rocks and decorations. Ethel-Lynn showed us how to plant them and what to do if we wanted the exact design of the class. We all did our own though.
