As you may know, last week I attended the Bloom Workshop and oh my word...talk about a day filled with pretty things and pretty people! I left feeling inspired to make my blog and life beautiful! (flowers by The Day's Design) (and photo by me! Thanks to Ashley for her amazing tutorial that day!)
The workshop was held at the Hydrangea Blu Barn...it was such a gorgeous venue! If I had it all to do over again I would get married there in a hot second!
Michaela and Ashley were wonderful hosts and had so many good things to share. Rumor has it they are thinking about offering the workshop in other cities, so if you have a chance to go I highly recommend it! These two did their research and put together a wonderful program. Part of the day was spent talking about blogging and social media and the rest of the time was dedicated to styling, photography, and a beautiful styled photo shoot.
The cake. Oh my word this cake was beautiful.
There were probably 30-35ish women there...including my friend Jenny! I haven't seen her in 7 or 8 years, so it was so fun to catch up....but basically it's like there was no time gap between us because we both blog about our lives. Funny how that works!
We were seated inside of the barn for most of the day (it was so cold outside!) and I just loved all of the decor. Michaela and Ashley have such a good eye!
This was the table Michaela styled for the photo shoot. It was so pretty...I totally wanted to take those napkins home! (they were from C. Wonder...similar here).
I also got to sit on the "expert panel" at the end of the day...and it went really well! Abby from Abby M. Interiors and Tieka from Selective Potential joined me (along with Michaela and Ashley) and it was so much fun! I have zero pictures of it so I'm hoping someone blogs about it soon!
I met so many wonderful people and made some new friends. All in all it was such a fun and sweet day!
Each attendee was sent home with this amazing swag bag! Here are a few of my favorites: scarf from Lee & Birch, mug from Ashley & Malone, candle (I got SoCal...how perfect!) from Bash Events, earrings from Pomfret Creations, print from Evelyn Henson, gold foil print from Lara Casey Media, pencils from Design Darling, business card holder from Sweet Sugar Beet (which I busted out and immediately started using!) and a beautiful tote bag from Dream State. Swoon!
Thank you Michaela and Ashley for such a fun and beautiful workshop! I can't wait to see what's next for Bloom!
