Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival, Brunch at the Vineyard & Garden in Oregon
Let me start by saying that I’m sure you’re all already sick of seeing everyone post about the tulip festival but here’s the thing. Tulips are by far my favorite flower and always have been. Before even moving to Oregon, the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival and the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival were on my bucket list. So, I had to make myself go this year since for the last five years it’s been a plan that’s never worked out. Even if it was the tail end of it!
Over Mother’s Day weekend, they had a brunch at the wooden shoe vineyard in Woodburn, Oregon. A small, quaint winery right next to acres of blooming tulips. The only downside was the tulip festival was over! I’m sure my photos won’t do it much justice since so many were already wilting and had been removed. But the plus side of the festival being over was being able to be the only one in the field! I hate crowds when I’m trying to take photos and the weather had been so crummy that I never actually made it out during the festival. Do not fret, there is always next year.
My friend Stephanie and I set out to leave early, just to be safe and make it in time to brunch. To my surprise we got there so early we had time to kill. We shot all our photos before brunch as the little farm dog followed us everywhere. Seriously the sweetest dog.
Brunch was held at the vineyard and it was a buffet style that came with mimosas. I mean…what more could you want? After brunch, we walked around and checked out the garden nearby that had numerous blooms. It kind of made up for the fact that we missed the festival.
I decided to wear a Show Me Your Mumu mini dress with a pair of Steve Madden booties. I’ve been all about the flowers/florals lately (my current IG feed is a testament to that). I just wanted to blend in with the flowers. If you missed the tulip festival, it typically happens from April-May. I would say the best time to go is probably April? One of the wonderful things about living in Oregon is all the blooming flowers. I have a couple of places I will be exploring the next few months so stay tuned for that!
