Art In Bloom will be offering a variety of specials for this event, including discounts on all of our uniquely designed fall arrangements and decor items. Each lady entering the boutique receives a beautiful fresh flower, a chance to win a gift certificate valued at $50.00 and a true sensory experience. The boutique has been re-merchandised and redecorated for the fall season so there is much to take in and enjoy. We also invite you to try a delicious dessert pop created by Kim Geroux-Lenga and her new local business, Deliciously Home-Made.

Brighton Smokin’ Jazz and BBQ Blues Festival

Hey all…Brighton will be hopping tonight and all day tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 10 and Saturday, Sept. 11) with live music and great food. I hear the aroma of the ribs and chicken wafting down the street from the cookers is amazing. Art In Bloom will be offering an art-making experience on Saturday that will tie the blues and jazz theme into a community collage. Following the style of Henri Matisse when he created his fabulous paper cut-outs, visitors are invited to grab a sheet of painted or hand-made paper and “draw with scissors.” Each shape cut out will represent that person’s reaction to the jazz and blues festival and will be added to a large collage board. We are also raffling off an Art In Bloom gift certificate valued at $50.00 and good toward any cash-and-carry floral purchase. You won’t want to miss this!
