This gorgeous event could not have come together without the vision and talents of Kellie Ryan Designs. Here’s what she had to say about designing this Florida workshop:
Laura Hooper Calligraphy approached me about the requests for a South Florida workshop and I instantly became excited to be involved. I immediately knew the atmosphere of the occasion, touches of specialty décor and floral elements were top design priorities. Collaborating with Yesy from Love in Vintage allowed the first and second of these priorities to be accomplished. The Love in Vintage studio in Fort Lauderdale presented a sense of place for our girl tea-party inspired workshop. Using antique pieces from Yesy’s collection, such as the credenza and armoire, provided a touch of sophistication. Julia Rohde Designs (creative genius) swaddled the vintage pieces with blooms ever-so delicately. Colored milk glass, china and sterling silver were intermixed throughout the space to create juxtaposition with the loose floral arrangements and cascading greens.
Facing the ornamented fireplace, each attendee’s place setting included workshop materials with a bespoke wooden name tag, a delicate china cup and a beautiful tote bag. The specialty Silver Sonnet linen, sourced from BBJ Linen, created unexpected texture, yet was soft enough to pair perfectly with our feminine design aesthetic.
To quench the attendees thirst a ‘build your own’ bubbles bar was fully stocked with blackberries, strawberries and
fresh squeezed juices. Les Petits Sucres provided an abundance of French inspired sweets that included delicious cookies, brownies, bites and tarts. Attendees were merry and bright with holiday spirit and the celebratory toasts continued well after the workshop concluded.
