Private Events

Flowers & Bread has the ability to customize your private event between our private Dining Room Upstairs and our downstairs floral and bread studios.

Our spaces are designed to host bridal and baby showers, rehearsal dinners, holidays, anniversaries, progressive dinners, and other celebrations as well as private classes, team building activities, and off-site business meetings.

Please submit the form below to receive more information about our event ideas and pricing.

Groups may choose to simply enjoy a meal together in the private dining space or to work together in the bread studio to bake artisanal loaves. Or they may choose the floral studio where an instructor will walk them though the steps of building a better bouquet or a lush floral necklace. They may gather around the wood-fired oven to make stretch dough and top pizzas. Many groups love to make doughnuts or quick-breads and homemade jams together. These are just some of the many options to choose from.

For our brides, we not only create shower events and rehearsal dinners, but also offer a DIY floral party package. The package includes private use of our floral studio to create their wedding flowers with the assistance of an in-house instructor.

Flowers & Bread is a chef-driven event space. We focus on fresh seasonal ingredients, wood-fire cooking, and creating unique experiences in each of our different spaces.

We believe the most memorable celebrations happen around the table. Our team will work with you to customize an event to celebrate your milestones your way. Our hands-on components add a special touch to your event. Groups are welcome to bake breads, make jam, cook at the wood-fired stove, build wreaths, or arrange flowers, etc.. The list is endless! All activities can be paired with a breakfast, lunch, dinner or refreshments. Let us know your where your interests lie and we can create a hands-on event just for you!
