What a glorious collaboration of inspiring women this turned out to be. In partnership with Mandy from the absolutely stunning Kalinya gardens, we created a magical afternoon under the grape arbor and garden gazebo – flutes of champagne, cocktail delicacies prepared by hatted chef Matt, beautiful locally grown blooms in crisp whites and greens.

I then roped in my good friend Nicki – cottonwood and co. to not only photograph the event but to co-teach the styling portion of the day, using the same florals designs we created – styled the garden gazebo table 2 completely different ways, both in such a cost-effective way to create 2 stunning festive tables. From the text sent and images tagged at our attendee’s Christmas tables, it was easy to see they had wowed their guests with their newfound appreciation and skills in styling.

An impromptu cake styling session with the divine miss sally from simmer and Boyle, who had generously made the most -cant describe it delish, chiffon cake – a sneak peek in the video below. But the joy of joys for me at this event the wonderful Flore Vallery Radot attended, capturing my little workshop in her heartfelt &  unique way to create a  dreamy little insight into this very special event. So grateful to every who attended and to connect with and befriend these fabulous women.

Be always blooming,
