Beyond the Vase

An Ontario's Southwest Signature Experience


Guests begin this 2.5 hour experience located in Blenheim with a walk in the tulip field where you participate in a scavenger hunt style activity identifying a tulip or daffodil variety that fits the creative "personality" descriptions given on a game card. You will then choose one tulip to create your own tulip personality description while sipping virgin "Mint Tulip" drinks, their version of a Mint Julep. The next phase of the experience is back into the field to cut blooms for flower pressing. Guests will be shown how to cut, prepare and press flowers in a branded flower press you will take home. Using pre-pressed petals, the final part of this experience is creating an art piece as a group to demonstrate what can be done with their pressed flowers at home. This collaborative art piece will become a feature of future experiences. Along with the flower press full of petals, you will take home a floral frame to create your own art piece a few weeks later.
