Our gathering begins Thursday morning, as we join together for our first full day creative workshop with Kim Caldwell. After long awaited hugs, we will find our spots with friends, new and old, in our Romantic Ballet classroom. Our Affaire will begin creating the most charming baby ballet slipper pin cushion and notions box. Beading, ruffling, collaging will only be part of the fun!

You can read more about Kim's Workshop Here.

Our day will include a delicious lunch, dessert and drinks in a beautiful garden setting.



Immediately following our workshop with Kim, we will enjoy an evening Shopping Boutique! Enjoy appetizers and a glass of wine as we shop our intimate specialized vendor boutique made up of some of our favorite artists and event instructors. As an added bonus, our sweet vendors will have their wares available for the duration of the Affaire!



Bright and early Friday morning, we will meet for our day of creative time with Jane Blanco. Known for her whimsical creations and flare for the charming, Jane will be teaching one of her famed creatures ~ a lamb ballerina dressed just for the occasion. Learn her painting techniques and more in this full day workshop. You can find more details about her workshop Here.

Our day will include a delicious lunch, dessert and drinks in a beautiful garden setting.




After our creative day with Jane, we will gather for our last evening together. Enjoy a delicious dinner as we spend the evening exchanging our own art from a wonderful selection of optional swaps and make an exclusive DIY Romantic Ballet themed Make n' Take. Women sharing their beautiful creations and bits of themselves is always a highlight of our gatherings! This is also a great evening to play with your projects from the last two days and put on any finishing touches!



Day Three will find us all together again for our final day of creative time with Anne Davies! Anne will guide us through her beautiful handwork techniques as we create a wall hanging filled with ribbon flowers and beading of our event ballerina. You can read more about Anne's Workshop Here.

Our day will include a delicious lunch, dessert and drinks in a beautiful garden setting.



Sunday morning, bright and early, brings us to our last time together before saying goodbye. Join us for an exciting optional Flea Market Tour to some of our favorite Southern California antique shopping spots and two special additions ~ an exclusive Farm to Table Italian Style luncheon with our favorite couple Dean & Rita Reade and private reception at Lori Chandler's Vignette's Boutique in San Diego! You will not want to miss this day full of shopping, treats, gifts and fun before your journey home.
