Where can a grown woman make & wear a flower crown and have it be socially acceptable? At WRKSHP Creative. I was lucky to take part in the first Galentines Day event headed by the duo Karyn Kimberley and Crystal Brodeur, and taught by Joanne Morris of Twig and Bloom. Karyn and Crystal started WRKSHP to allow women to connect with each other in a fun and creative environment. You can read more about their story in this post from Our Collective Muse.
As soon as I walked into Thrive Juice Co., I was floored. Everything was so beautiful and every single detail had been taken into consideration. The ladies had promised Pinterest on steroids and this was it. Everything was colour co-ordinated, the flowers were beautiful, and the treats were both amazing to look at and delicious too.
I was a little nervous because I went by myself, but I was welcomed by all of our hosts and quickly made friends with the girls around the table. For many of us, this was a chance to treat ourselves, meet new people, and flex our creative muscles. It was nice to do something Pinterest-y without the risk of a Pinterest-fail.
Anyone Can Make a Flower Crown
Flower crowns are one of those things that look impossible to make, but are quite easy. Joanne walked us through the process with ease. You should check out her gorgeous online floral service, Twig and Bloom. Carefully curated blooms every month. . . what’s not to love.
Fun fact: If you ever make a floral crown, do not size it larger thinking the flowers will take up space. They don’t!
Here’s my floral crown! (And me probably posting my floral-crown-selfie on Facebook.)
Most of the other girls had never worked with flowers before, so I was the first one done. With all that time on my hands, it was time to check out the treats!
Everything looked almost too pretty to eat, but I did. It was delicious.
Each lady was sent home with a swag bag filled with grown-up Valentines treats. It was the cherry on top of an event that already made me feel loved and appreciated. As women, we often take care of everybody else and leave nothing for ourselves. The event let me express my creativity and feel cared for. I’ve never been to something where this level of care and detail was taken into making my experience the best one possible.
Another fun fact: I was so blown away with how pretty everything was that I didn’t even notice the pink balloon wall or the helium balloons (In the picture above). Crystal of Love & Lace event planning really outdid herself.
In case you’re wondering, the flower crown still looked basically perfect 2 days later. I didn’t even mist it or put it in the fridge to help preserve it.
Wrshp Creative is offering events like these every month with makers from around Saskatoon. They are also available for bridal showers, baby showers, bachelorette parties, team building workshops, birthday parties, and girls’ night out. I would highly recommend their services and can’t wait to attend another wrkshp. Anyone want to come with me?
