It varies by event, but we usually plan these events for between 80 to 150 people. These events are experiential dinners unlike anything else you can find, so tickets go quickly!
Everything except alcohol. The appetizers, the 4 course meal, the flowers and the swag bag are all included in your ticket price. The only thing that is not included is any alcoholic beverages. There is a cash bar set up, however, where you can purchase local beer and wine.
All of our venues are greenhouses, which means that the temperatures are usually fairly warm. The temperature in most greenhouses ranges between 20 and 24 degrees Celsius, so dress accordingly. Guests are invited to dress “casual dressy”. Also, keep in mind that some of the tours may lead through refrigerated areas of the greenhouse, which can drop down to 4 or 5 degrees Celsius. The amount of time spent in these areas, however, will be very minimal (a minute or two at most!). Finally, depending on the time of the year, bringing a sweater or jacket may be a good idea as temperatures can drop after sunset.
Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Each dinner includes a walking tour of the greenhouse. The tour can range from about 10-20 minutes of slow paced walking, so it is important to wear shoes that allow for that. High heels are not advised!
Bring your camera, because you are entering a very Instagram-worthy atmosphere!
Yes they are! Each one of our venues is a member of Flowers Canada (Ontario) Inc. and therefore a fully operational commercial greenhouse. The only thing to keep in mind is that the tours may have some restrictions (certain areas visitors are not allowed to walk, etc.), so be sure to just heed the instructions of your tour guide.
It depends on the venue and the chef, but drop us a call or an e-mail and we would be happy to discuss what can be done.
No outside alcohol is allowed at a Petals & Plates event.
Not at all! The only thing we ask is that the name on the ticket matches the name of the person attending the event. If you are purchasing the ticket as a gift and will not be attending yourself, please just contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and give us the name of the person that will be attending so that our records match the attendee.
