French Croissant Workshop for Mother’s Day

The art of French croissant making is something my Mom (blogger at Seam Sew Cool) and I have always wanted to learn. So per her birthday request, we signed up for Craftsy’s Online Class: Classic Croissants at Home, and spent the weekend in my kitchen chatting, sneaking bites of that oh-so buttery dough, and of course, mastering the technique for classic French croissants.

The croissant workshop made a fun birthday gift, and so it got me thinking that it would also make a fantastic gift for Mother’s Day too. (It’s coming up, kids!) It’s a creative way to spend time with Mom, while learning something new.

Here’s how it came together: I picked up the croissant ingredients, a bouquet of flowers (just because), and any additional tools we needed ahead of time. I wrapped up the new croissant tools with a pretty bow for her to open when she arrived. On Saturday, I pulled out a few fun aprons and had some French tunes humming in the background.

If you’ve ever made French croissants, you know there are a lot of steps and a lot of breaks in between while the dough refrigerates or rises. My mom and I made them over a Saturday afternoon + Sunday morning so that we could have fresh-from-the-oven croissants for breakfast on Sunday, but you could also make and complete them on Saturday (just be sure to start early!)

    This is such a fun Mother’s Day idea! I love that your mom has a blog. I had never made croissants before so I decided to look up a recipe one day… I had no idea there were so many steps. I immediately changed my mind. One of these days I’ll find the time/energy to make them. Yours look like they turned out great!
