A Summer Dinner Party with The Champagne Moon!

It's summertime in California! Which means all good things: beach bonfires, BBQs, outdoor movie viewings, concerts in the park, and of course, dinner parties on the patio! Ashleigh from The Champagne Moon is right there with me in her love of California summer. We gathered together with a few other lovely ladies (& gents) to create a perfect night under the stars.

Spring Bouquet Workshop at saltfineart!

Hi everyone! Saturday's workshop was a blast. Amber Materna (founder of ROOT), a.k.a my sister from another mister, put together the most beautiful event. I'm so grateful to have been a part of Workshops for a Reason's very first event! The workshop benefitted UP, a local non-profit that aims to bring mindfulness & yoga to teens. The vibe of the event reflected WFAR's theme perfectly. It brought together mothers, daughters, sisters & friends to share in a creative experience while giving back to the community. 

WAHCA supplied a selection of seasonal blooms for each of the participants and led a floral lesson beginning with how to choose cut flowers (by color palette vs. by type), to how to clean & care for cut flowers, and of course a hands-on tutorial where everyone created their own Spring bouquet. It was so amazing to watch all these women light up as they designed their bouquets!

Thank you to everyone who made our first workshop a success! Click on the photo below to view some shots from Saturday.
