The first week of December, a few ladies on our Atlanta Wedding Planning team had the opportunity to attend a floral workshop, led by Lindsay Coletta and hosted by Krista of Blue Eyed Yonder + Kate Turner Studio. It was my first floral workshop and absolutely a blast!
I’m the kind of person who loves to scour Hobby Lobby for the latest craft, and purchase ALL THE THINGS. But, then I get home and get swept into the daily needs of life juggling a toddler + business. And those items sit in my closet for years before I finally throw them in the Good Will pile. Therefore, this is a big part of the reason why I don’t DIY and my husband has banned me from craft stores everywhere. So, the opportunity to walk into a workshop where all of the supplies were ready and waiting + be free of the distractions of home life was an unexpected creative blessing! A “joy bomb”, as my family has started calling those sweet, fun moments that give us life + a boost when we least expect it.
Blue Eye Yonder’s space was perfect for a floral workshop. Krista had some fun lounge + photo settings set up, donned with sparkling votives and greenery. It was an inspiring studio full of creativity from the moment we arrived. And Krista’s warm smile and welcome made it just the perfect environment for new friends and laughter.
Lindsay Coletta (a close personal friend of mine), was beaming with excitement. Her passion for floral artistry is evident in her attitude and work. And having worked with her on many stunning weddings, I know how much love she puts into each arrangement. Lindsay puts 150% into everything she does and this floral workshop was no exception. She led us through creating a holiday wreath and floral centerpiece in our time with her, and it was truly a delight to work under her. Her guidance is sweet and inspiring. Although, she did give me a hard time about my wreath – which admittedly got a bit out of control – spanning the width of my front door at home.
Kate Turner had inscribed our names on an apron, which was waiting at our seat. And was such a thoughtful detail that made you feel welcome. She is the sweetest and captured all the details in the gorgeous photos you see below.
I absolutely felt lost in creativity, laughter + quality conversation while at this floral workshop. It was a true blessing to my soul, and it’s inspired me to start giving myself the gift of space for creativity more often. So, if you have the chance to attend a floral workshop my friend, I encourage you to take the leap. Make the investment! Because community + creativity are priceless.
