Guests will delight in a curated assortment of truffles and caramels, expertly paired with a series of custom-blended teas. As well, a special guest from PNB will make an appearance and share some exciting behind-the-scenes knowledge about their spectacular ballet performance, Coppélia. Before or after the event, guests can also “hit play” to watch the Pacific Northwest Ballet’s (PNB) virtual performance of Coppélia, through an exclusive event link.

Pre-order sales for this special event package will be available on Fran’s website as of April 9, 2021. The total event price before shipping is $115.00 USD, inclusive of the package listed.
