Our Doll's Dream House Itinerary



Our gathering begins Thursday morning, as we join together for a full day of Jane Blanco's creative workshop ~ Part One. Bring all your goodies and find your spot with friends, old and new, in our Doll's Dream House classroom and prepare to play! Jane, who is known for her whimsical creations, will be focusing her fabulous talents on the most darling of dollhouses. Bring your aprons because we will be a charming construction crew for the day ~ painting, sculpting, roofing and more will be on the punch list as we transform our shabby dollie homes into only something of our dreams! You can read more about Jane's Workshop Here.

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



Immediately following our day with Jane, we will enjoy an Evening Soiree & Shopping Boutique! Savor appetizers and a glass of wine

as we shop our curated vendor boutique with our event instructors and some of our favorite artists.

It will be a relaxing evening to socialize, shop and even work on your dollhouse!

As an added bonus, our sweet vendors will have their treasures set up for the duration of the Affaire!



Bright and early Friday morning, we will meet for a day of creative time with Lisa Loria. Well known for her fanciful dolls and creatures, Lisa has taken a trip through her childhood with dolls to bring us some of her favorite memories. Spend the day creating one of her beloved dolls with the sweetest wardrobe and accessories. The perfect companion to your shabby dollhouses! Learn to sew darling dresses, paint your dollie just so and fashion charming purses! You can find more details about Lisa's Workshop Here

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




After our creative day with Lisa, we will gather once more right after class for our last evening together. Enjoy a delicious dinner and dessert as we spend the evening exchanging our own art from a wonderful selection of optional swaps. Women sharing their beautiful creations and bits of themselves is always a highlight of our gatherings! Our classroom will of course be open this evening if you choose to play with your projects from the last two days and put on any finishing touches!



Day Three will find us all together for our final day of creative time! We will be gathering with Jane again to play with all things furnishings and embellishments as we turn to the inside of our dollhouses. Spend the day wallpapering, painting and creating the sweetest dressing area and closet for your dollie. You can read more about Jane's Workshop Here.

Our day will again 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 our favorite antique show and some of our most loved Southern California antique shopping spots! You will not want to miss this day full of shopping, treats, gifts and fun before your journey home the next day.
