Brunch & Blooms is sold out for 2021, but we look forward to seeing you in 2022!
Brunch & Blooms is a joyous occasion, combining Bailey's passion for flowers and Thomas's love of food. Guests arrive at Ardelia Farm on Sunday morning, greeted by an extraordinary all-you-can-eat brunch buffet in the party barn made using produce, eggs, and meat from our farm along with other local organic ingredients; scones, donuts, cinnamon rolls, housemade granola, fresh seasonal fruit and veggies, breakfast meats, cheesy grits, frittata, cakes, cookies and more, along with coffee, tea, and juices. It is beautiful and delicious, with tremendous attention paid to every detail.
After a leisurely meal enjoyed on mismatched antique china, guests are invited to take a self-guided tour around the farm. Say hello to the pigs, chickens, and cows. Stroll through the perennial fields and wander through the five greenhouses full of gorgeous aromatic sweet peas (200 different varieties!). Bailey's other-worldly carnivorous plant collection, which includes many hundreds of varieties of pitcher plants, will be on full display. Breathe deeply, slow down, and really soak up the sights, sounds, and smells of a flower farm in full bloom. This is a special place, and we are thrilled to be able to share it.
Then, upon returning to the party barn, guests will create a beautiful floral arrangement to take home. Select a vase from a wide selection of containers, grab a pair of clippers, and go to town on the wall of flowers grown here on Ardelia Farm. This is not a floral design workshop, but an opportunity to simply play with and express oneself through flowers! Bailey and Thomas will be available to offer any design tips and tricks as needed. We cannot guarantee the availability of any specific flower varieties or colors.
This is an informal, go-at-your-own pace kind of event. Some folks might keep to themselves and be in and out in 90 minutes, while others will make a day of it, chitchat with everyone, and linger for several hours! Some will be wearing fancy sundresses and others will be in dirty Carhartts. There are no rules. All are welcome.
We are located at 3118 W Glover Rd. in Irasburg VT 05845. A couple days before the event we will send out an email with additional details such as directions, where to park, etc.
