Designs on this Month: April Affairs to Remember

4 Apr

On the heels of last week’s surprise storm that opened the new season, we are still feeling timid about saying seemingly taboo words like ‘spring’ and ‘mild’ too soon. But we do prefer to stay positive here at Festival Fete so, with that, let us exclaim with some confidence, ‘Happy Spring!’ If not as lamb-like as we would, well, like, we are still that much closer to the opening of our season. In the meantime, check out some upcoming events we can all sink our artsy, craftsy teeth into until then. And, remember, we love to know what you, our loyal artists and followers, are up to – where you’re showing, going and what you’re making…so stay in touch and stay tuned.

  • Throughout April: Locally, our favorite so-much-more-than a garden store, The Farmer’s Daughter, is positively blooming with beautiful things to do and learn throughout the month. Go to the the website to plan your day in their gardens.
  • Image Sunday, April 6th: Who is better than the tireless foragers at Whole Foods to find original, locally inspired ideas for your upcoming event? Joining forces with Craftland of Providence, who brings an array of ‘locally made wedding wares,’ this talented team  promises novel wedding offerings from the flowers to the catering, the cakes and pastries as well as gifts of beauty and body care, too!
