Did you have a wonderful Mother’s Day? I hope you were treated to something special.

More and more I find myself wanting experiences instead of gifts for any occasion. Mallory and I had a beautiful day together recently when we attended a glass garden workshop at The Living Studio in Del Mar. Combining our love of gardening and art, Mallory aptly labeled the terrariums that were the fruits of our labor, “gart.”

Terrariums are containers in which small plants are grown. We used glass globes and layers of colored sand in ours.

The nice owners of The Living Studio helped us first-timers pick out just the right size and combinations of plants.

They had 15 different colors of sand to choose from, a variety of colored moss, stones and other embellishments to enhance our gardens.

If you’re looking for a fun mom’s day out or mommy & me class, consider an afternoon of “gart.” The Living Studio offers workshops for adults and children, AND you’ll leave with something beautiful to display in your home.

In addition to their weekly art workshops, The Living Studio offers a wide selection of hand-blown glass gardens, artisan jewelry, home decor crafted from sustainable materials, original art, and unique gifts. Visit them in Del Mar at 1011 Camino Del Mar, Suite 100 or at www.thelivingstudio.net.

    What a fun art experience to have with my daughter Layla creating a living glass globe terrarium together at The Living Studio in Del Mar. I’m always looking for fun ways to share experiences with my kids and creating a glass globe terrarium was of the best. We learned about glass gardening and caring for plants while having this wonderful glass garden of our own to take home.

    While there, check-out the shop with unique artisan creations of all kinds, Highly recommended!

    Thank you
