Build bouquets and drink wine at David Yurman event at Lenox Square

Customers shopping at David Yurman inside Lenox Square mall will get a chance to build a bouquet and drink some wine at a Saturday workshop hosted by the designer jewelry company and a national organization dedicated to repurposing flowers.  

David Yurman is partnering with Repeat Roses for a “Blossom Bar,” a workshop for 65 guests to make one-of-a-kind bouquets, according to a news release. The free workshop is open to customers in the store.

Repeat Roses is an organization that recycles and repurposes floral arrangements. Founder Jennifer Grove launched the business in 2014 after witnessing the amount of waste at weddings, galas and other events. 

Grove then decided to transform the arrangements into bouquets for hospitals, nursing homes and shelters. After their use, the flowers are then turned into compost. 

The bouquets from Saturday’s event will be delivered to Hughes Spalding Hospital. 

Guests will also be treated to light food and glass of wine at the event, which coincides with National Rosé Day.
