This right here makes my heart skip a beat! I hold workshops so very close to my heart as it combines my two passions; teaching and designing. I receive so much joy out of sharing what I know about design, and watching how others cultivate their own creativity. Our wreath workshop this year took place at the beautiful Studio 1552 in Emeryville, and Danielle from Danielle Poff Photography captured it perfectly. We drank, ate, designed, laughed and created insanely beautiful wreaths by the time we were done. Cheers!!!

Jessica and Jeff were a joy to work with from the second I had the pleasure of meeting them. The first thing I noticed talking with them was there immense love for each other, which obviously shows. Jessica had such a beautiful vision for her wedding that she let me run wild with, which turned into bright orange poppies mixed with wild air plants and simplistic greenery. Scott and Amanda from Sanford Creative captured not only the beautiful foliage and textures of the Conservatory of Flowers with San Francisco, but the heart of Jessica and Jeff through their photos.

This has by far been one of my favorite shoots to date. When Danielle from Danielle Poff photography, Morgan from Spreading Lovely, and I first sat down to plan this shoot, I knew we were creating something really special. Just as I predicted, when first receiving scans back in my inbox, I squealed over almost every picture. From the huge peonies and head piece to the pink inflatable pool flamingo, this shoot was nothing less than amazing and fun.

This fall workshop was just so much fun! It took place just in time for Thanksgiving, which all of the attendees learned to make a natural/organic centerpiece for their fall table scape. We chatted, ate, drank, designed, laughed and had the best of time creating something beautiful together!
