DIY FLOWER CROWNS

Back by popular demand, the “Make-Your-Own-Floral-Crown” station is the perfect way to get creative and relax with your girls. Grab a yummy drink, do a little DIY-ing, and then snap photos of your floral crown in the cute photo booths. (Can anyone say “Insta-worthy?” ;)) Huge thank you to Haute House Studio for providing all the materials!

WHERE TO PARK

We love that our event offers FREE parking! The best option is to park in any of the Mall of America parking lots and ramps. The closest to the Radisson Blu entry would be parking by Macy’s.

*Keep in mind that parking in the Radisson Blu ramp is not free.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

“If I purchased a ticket for the a later time slot, is it okay if I show up a little earlier?”
Absolutely! You don’t necessarily have to stick by the time-slot that you originally chose. You may come when you please. They are just suggested times.

“I have a friend who decided the day-of that she wants to come. Can she get a discount at the door?”
As the saying goes––the more the merrier. However, tickets will be the full-price of $20 at the door, so make sure they buy them in advance so they can get them on sale too!

“Will there be a place to but my coat?”

Definitely! We know how cold and unpredictable this good ole’ Minnesota weather can be. So we have a free coatcheck!

WHO TO BRING & WHY

We recommend bringing your friends, mom, mother-in-law, bridesmaids, sister(s), etc. Because you deserve a girls day out with your best ladies! Plus, there will also be things for them too! For example, moms will love Envy Skin Clinic, your bridesmaids will love The Sparkle Bus, and your MOH can even help pick out bridesmaid gifts from the cutest boutiques and local shops like Arza Jewelry, Penny & Pine, & more! And we’re pretty sure you’ll all love making your own DIY floral crowns with Haute House Studio.

BONUS: Take your best ladies over to Mall of America to enjoy even more shopping and relaxing before your big day. The Radisson Blu MOA is in MOA! How perfect, right?!
