Posies & Palates: The Language of Love

Friday 2/7 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm

The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens

Set the mood for Valentines Day by creating a heart-shaped floral design and making cocktails inspired by the themes of love and friendship in this workshop presented jointly by Flower Duet and ArtBites. The evening begins with a private viewing of selected items from the “Nancy and Henry Rosin Collection of Valentine, Friendship and Devotional Ephemera” with curatorial assistant Laura Rips. Small bites will be served with the cocktails. ($85 members; $100 non-members)
