This blogging journey has brought me some amazing opportunities, with precious friendships being one of the best. A few months ago, my darling friend Jen (we met online!) and I were invited to speak at the Bloom Bash Workshop, which was created by our gorgeous friends Michaela and Ashley (whom I also met online...a concept my mom still doesn't understand!). ;)
I gave a session on decorating tips, specifically how to style consoles, and Jen spoke on the power of Pinterest. Then we participated in a no-holds-barred Q & A session on all things design and blogging. The two-day workshop was so beautifully styled and planned, it was like living in an issue of Martha Stewart Living.
The workshop was held at the picturesque Lange Farms, a Southern-style plantation with wrap-around porch, rustic barn, and towering oak trees. Sessions included design, photography, flower arranging, calligraphy, and small-business tips, then we had hands-on instruction for styling and shooting a mock wedding. There was even a horse!
I was honored to be included amongst these talented ladies, and left the workshop so creatively inspired! You can see more pics from this gorgeous two-day event here, and find details on the next Bloom Workshop in San Clemente here.
Don't you feel like spending the day on that porch with a big glass of sweet tea?!
