3. Birdhouse and Bird Feeder Making Workshop
It’s this time of year that birds come out of their overwintering sites and fly out into the world. So, offer your team a workshop that’s equal parts rewarding and actually useful – a DIY birdhouse or bird-feeder project. Birdhouses offer a cozy shelter for birds, and in doing so, they help keep pests, weeds, and stress (all that beautiful chirping!) at bay in your backyard. Hummingbirds, for example, will also pollinate the surrounding plants. Win-win-win.
Turn the workshop into an ode to winged creatures through food (Themed cupcakes! Toasted coconut and robin eggs! Bird cake pops!) drinks, and decorations. From whimsical, woodland-like garlands and distressed bird cages to blossom-season-inspired tablescapes, there are so many options – especially when you pick a turnkey venue like Flora.
4. Easter/Springtime Egg Decorating Party
Round up your team and bring them together for this egg-cellent springtime tradition: An egg decorating party. Food-safe markers and coloring, and rubber stamps are the essentials, but there are so many other props and tools you can bring to the table. For example, if you’re hosting a treasure or egg hunt, stuff them with items grown-ups will enjoy, like a gift card to a local coffee shop, gourmet candies, or even boozy gummies (rose-all-day bears, anyone?)
With all the decorating and treasure-hunting shenanigans, you’re going to need some sustenance. Put a grown-up spin on the afternoon with a lineup of signature spring-inspired cocktails and a menu that riffs on Easter brunch staples. Think: Eggs en Cocotte, bacon-wrapped asparagus, carrot-cake dip, etc. One word: Yum!
5. Springtime Yoga Flow and Meditation Session
A lot of springtime traditions revolve around celebration and gratitude, so it’s not that big of a, erm, stretch to think your team would enjoy an hour or so of low-impact, rejuvenating yoga. Partner with a local instructor, and bring them in for a relaxing vinyasa flow, followed by a meditation session. Not only is this a great exercise for the body, yoga and meditation are also known to improve mental function, increase mindfulness, and keep stress at bay.
Flora’s space is open, calm and airy, and it can comfortably accommodate multiple yoga mats. A state-of-the-art sound system will help your attendees better sink into their practice, and a projector and mic will ensure everyone can see and hear the yoga instructor clearly. After you come out of your savasana, gather around for some post-workout coconut water and locally made fruit smoothies to replenish your body and mind. So, whether you decide to roll out a mat or a picnic blanket, Flora is here to bring your springtime vision to life.
