A few weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to go to Southern California for The Romantik Fall Centerpiece Workshop. It was hosted by two of my favorite flower ladies - Rachael of Lace & Likes and Siren Floral Co. and Kasia of Plenty of Petals. It was a day of unforgettable treats and floral tricks, and inspiration everywhere. I met some amazing women who are passionate about their floral design work, which fills my heart up so much. When describing my experience to a friend, the best I could do was say: “It was seriously so magical and inspiring, and there was a dog too!” Cash the buddy was so sweet and followed Rachael around the entire day – heart melt.
Here are some photos of my day at the workshop - and if you ever have the chance to sign up for a Romantik Workshop I highly encourage you to. There is always always always something new to learn and grow into – no matter how seasoned you are. We talked about color transition and theory, depth and texture, taking risks, setting boundaries, “inny outtys”, big fatty flowers coming out at your face, everything. I heard exactly what I needed to hear, and it motivated me push my own boundaries and try something new and different and scary in my creative work. These are the reasons why I ultimately entered into this field - to take risks and face challenges and put myself out there even when I have doubts. And from experience, things always work out better than expected.
