Hello friends! I have lots and lots of pictures to share from last weekend's flower crown workshop. It was one of the sweetest mornings to myself that I've had all summer, that perfect opportunity to just be a girl and indulge in all those fun, feminine things that I love so much. Getting away from the busy, busy, busy and relaxing with other creatives is food for the soul.
I need to mention the ladies who helped me put this event together because they are incredible. Sharon is a part of the August Haven team and is an amazingly talented woman. She has an incredible eye for design and she not only set up a rustic chic space for our event but, oh my goodness, created that beautiful arrangement of fruits and cheeses in lettuce bowls. It was a sight to behold. And then there's Sunny, the owner of Ebb and Flow Flowers. She also completely blows me away with her skill with flowers. Every flower she touches turns into magic. Such a gift. I've so appreciated the chance to get to know both of you and have loved this chance to collaborate. I'm quickly learning that the word collaborate is becoming one of my favorites. :)
Let's get started. We were set up right at the entrance to August Haven, a home store here in Green Bay with a showroom that will leave you breathless. The furniture in unbelievable, absolute eye candy and swoon worthy pieces. They have everything from sofas and rugs to vintage maps and cage lights. And then everything in-between.
Sunny had selected an assortment of flowers from the market and set them out on our tables in little vases. After hanging out and enjoying our mimosas, she got started with her tutorial on how to create a crown of our own.
The fun hot pink postcards that were used as favors for our ladies at the workshop are from Tiny Prints.And here are all the ladies in their crowns. First up, me with my mom and sister. Mwa!
AND some exciting news along those newsy lines, I'll be back on TV in a couple of weeks to do a fashion segment! I have a wonderful little fairy godmother who helped get my foot in the door (thank you and big hugs) and well, it looks like maybe this whole TV thing could be happening every so often which is just crazy and incredible. A teensy nerve wrecking, yes, but it can only get better after that first time on live TV. Right?! And fashion, that's something I can talk in circles about. So I'll be taking a few models with me next time and be talking about back to school looks for moms! Yes please, don't leave the moms out of back to school outfit shopping. I love it. So for all you mamas who are itching to grab a few cozy fall additions to your closet, I'll be on on Thursday, August 28th at 8:45am with a variety of day time looks to suit any style.
