Annual Pumpkin Launch Party

September 8, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm


If your favorite season is fall and you love pumpkins, be sure to join us at our Pumpkin Launch Party from 3-6 pm. We are celebrating 12 years in business and this is our annual party!

Jeremie has been creating her most bewitching pumpkins yet! She was asked to design a table display with her pumpkins for a movie! The scene in the movie takes place in the mayor’s home at a dinner party. Shop the whole display during this evening.

Additionally, Jeremie has returned to using one of her favorite Italian techniques, cane. You will see the colors of cane, sticks of glass, swirl into a pattern similar to a peppermint patty candy.

She also is adding to her collection the smallest pumpkins yet called micro-mini. So, come mingle with the team, select your pick of the patch, enjoy refreshments, and socialize in an open, safe atmosphere. This evening is the only date we ask for a reservation. Can’t make it this evening? View the next few days on this calendar to see our open hours.

Please, RSVP below to reserve your spot.

a note on our colors

We hope you are enjoying shopping on our website. We strive to provide the best image of what we are offering for you. Please note sometimes the colors in our products may look a little different in natural light. Use this color guide to see the exact colors placed in front of a white background.

All of the glass has been hand-blown or sculpted — no machine helps us make our product but our seasoned hands and our love for the art.

Cheese Platter

Blow a huge bubble & spin it into a platter! Our instructors will guide you to roll into color, heat the glass and use a variety of the glass blowers’ tools. Then, using gravity & centripetal force, spin the glass until it opens into a platter (10-12” wide)
