Calligraphy & Blooms

Forever Cole Workshop #1

.Social Workshop.

Just imagine a room full of bridal gowns, fresh blooms, yummy treats, and hand written lovelies... This is the exact setting of our first workshop. I must say that when I first thought of this idea to plan a workshop I never imagined that it would have turned out SO wonderful! All of my expectations were met and exceeded and that is due to the wonderful group of girls who attended and all of the hard workers who helped make it possible. 

Rachel Kathryn Designs taught beginning calligraphy & provided all of the necessary tools to do so, Prescott Bridal let us hang out in their boutique, Okie Cookies Catering provided delicious bites, Poetry and Prose Photography captured all of the precious moments, and blo. donated gift cards for door prizes.

The goal was to make everyone feel welcome, loved, and important. Which I hope everyone felt just that and took some great skills back with them. Practice makes perfect, ladies. Keep up the hard work and I know you will be a master calligraphist in no time. Rachel, the owner of Rachel Kathryn Designs spent some quality time teaching hands on skills for those who are wanting to learn how to work with a nib and the basics of calligraphy. After about an hour we thought it would be nice to give everyone a break, chat, fill up their wine, and chill for a few moments. After all we did say this was a social workshop.

My goal as the floral instructor was to let everyone know they can create one of a kind centerpieces at home and on a budget. After all everyone loves & deserves fresh blooms in their house whether it be a special occasion, a down day, or just BECAUSE.

I taught basic tips for sourcing, care & handling, containers, and supplies. All of my blooms were purchased locally at a farm in Oklahoma and you can purchase her blooms at Whole Foods here in OKC. Just a little secret I purchase a lot of my containers at Thrift Stores and West Elm is my weakness. 

Don't worry we listened to everyone and the next workshop will be more focused on floral design as we spent just a little time on this subject. We will also make sure everyone goes home with their own creation {YAY}.
