Blossom Boys open new shop on 103rd in Beverly neighborhood
One of our favorite programs in years past has been flower arranging with the Blossom Boys, Ryan Steinbach and Steve English. They closed their flower shop in 2016 after eight years in Beverly. This September they decided to bring it back and have a new shop on 103rd Street just east of the Rock Island train station. They have renovated a storefront at 1810 W 103rd and are planning a gallery type setting with local artist participation, "fair trade" trunk shows, and, of course, their beautifully creative flower arrangements. Large events and smaller celebrations will be a focus. Gifts will be available for the upcoming holidays. This shop will be a bit larger than the original store and the guys want to hold more arts and crafts classes and events.
Make a Fall Arrangement
November 1st at 6:30 p.m., EP Public Library
Sue Palka, presenter
This November Sue Palka will take us through creating flower arrangements with some of the lovely greenery that autumn provides for us. Sue will provide the cut flowers and fillers and help with the process. Sue is adept with arrangements and wreaths and this is always a popular program, especially around the holidays. Arrangements lift the spirits during these shorter days and liven up our spaces. This program requires pre-registration and a small fee. Join us and express your artistic side! Then take your arrangement home and let your family admire your creative talent.
Join us at 6:30 pm in the library downstairs conference room.
The Garden Club of Evergreen Park welcomes the Blossom Boys back to the area!
