A couple weeks ago I decided to take a weekday morning off for a one-on-one floral workshop with the lovely gals at Sweet Root Village, Lauren & Rachel. The wedding season can be a very busy time, and as a small business owner I am usually in the mindset that I have to be doing something for my business…at all times. This year I’ve been focusing on intentionally scheduling time off for myself whether it be on my own, with my husband, with my family, etc.

As I’ve mentioned many times on Instagram, I love flowers! I planted about a thousand plants at my house this past season and can not wait for the bounty that {hopefully!} awaits me next spring, so in the meantime, I thought it would be fun to see if Lauren & Rachel would teach me some tricks for sprucing up my arrangements.

It was such a wonderful morning spent with fellow creatives & I’m so glad I took the time out of my week to do something for me. Not only did we create a beautiful arrangement, but we also chatted about small business ownership, working in the wedding industry and more. It’s always such a treat to spend time with industry colleagues who understand “the business” ~ as my sister & I like to call it!

Anyway, Lauren & Rachel are so talented, that not only do they create gorgeous floral arrangements, but they also snap great pics! Here are a few from my time with them…










I had so much fun that I already scheduled a holiday session in December when my mom comes to visit! Thanks again Lauren & Rachel for having me!
