The Terrarium Bar in our little shop is a great place for you to relax, get your hands a little dirty, and enjoy some plant therapy. Bring your imagination, and we’ve got all the ingredients you need to build your own one-of-a-kind living decor. Here’s how it works:
Reserve a time slot from the available dates on our calendar. We allow 45 mins for UP TO 2 PEOPLE. When you reserve the room, you have the space to yourself (and staff of course) , so there is only one reservation available per time slot offered. Due to COVID safety adjustments, we are no longer allowing more than 2 people per appointment.
Decide ahead of time if you would like to create a succulent or foliage terrarium. Succulents must be placed in open terrarium containers and can not be combined with foliage due to different moisture needs.
Once you arrive for your reserved time and know your plant type, select a container from the available options appropriate for your plants. We have closed terrarium containers suitable for foliage, and open containers suitable for both succulents and foliage.
Each container will be labeled with info detailing the price and the number of plants included in your design. Prices range from $20 to $80+ based on the container design and size. You may also bring your own container and will price your appointment based on plants and supplies.
Select your plants based on the info provided with the container you choose. Our plants are 2″ individually potted pixie plants in assorted varieties. Adding additional plants will incur separate charges and may not be suitable for the growth of your terrarium, so we suggest keeping to the guidelines. Choose all your plants BEFORE you start building your design. You can not swap a plant once it has been removed from its pot.
Instructions and visuals will be provided to explain how you should layer your terrarium, but the project is yours to complete in the time provided. Our staff is happy to answer any questions you might have but we do not dedicate an instructor to your time or group. Think of it as a DIY space, not a class, and no one is grading you on your work so just have fun!
Our Terrarium Bar includes the following supplies:
- pixie foliage plants and pixie succulents
- indoor potting soil
- succulent soil
- a variety of dried and preserved mosses
- rocks in various sizes and colors
- all the tools you need to detail your terrarium
You are free to use any of the above items and we can assist you with suggestions based on your plant choices.
COVID AND SAFETY UPDATES:
While the mask mandate has been lifted and you are no longer required to wear a mask to enter our store, we work closely in the Terrarium Bar and share materials and tools, so all appointments and staff assisting will be required to wear a mask and gloves in the work room for your safety and sanitation, as well as ours. Sanitizer will be made available and you are welcome to wash your hands before and after your appointment. You must agree to follow these procedures when you make your appointment. If you forget your mask, a disposable mask will be provided for you. If for any reason you prefer not to wear a mask while building your terrarium or have more than the allowed number of guests, we are happy to pack supplies for you so that you may make your terrarium at home.
While we understand people of all ages enjoy working with plants, we have envisioned our terrarium bar as an ADULT design experience, and our terrariums are meant to become a part of your home decor. With that in mind, we will NOT be offering children’s design options or parties. No children under 10 are allowed in the Terrarium Bar work room, even if just observing. Kids 10-16 must be accompanied by 1 parent observer in order to participate. For COVID safety reasons, we have a maximum of 2 TERRARIUM BUILDERS allowed in the room. (If both builders are under 16, the adult supervisor may observe only but will not have space to build their own.)
A scheduled appointment is required for all DIY builders. Please understand reservations and the needs of the shop take priority (deliveries, assembling custom orders, staffing, etc.) so walk-in time slots may not be available.
