NASHVILLE IN SESSION
okay, so before i start i want to address something. i did a survey about the blog the other day and asked the question “do you like hearing about blogshop?” and 83% of you said yes! however i still got a lot of comments about people feeling like they were too long or too often, which i can definitely understand. i am still going to post about the events because a lot of people do benefit from finding florists, event spaces, & even gift ideas from these posts, but i definitely want to give you the option to click through & read about it if you are interested and scroll right on by if you’re not. we put so much love into planning each one of the events, so i still love having a place to document how they all came together. thanks for following along!
we set up shop in craft studios. my friend james from bleubird hosted (i was so happy with how much she learned!), and elise from pennyweight helped us pull a bunch of nashville gems together for the weekend. check out this post for some of the spots we were able to visit on our down time!
ps, we are teaching in LA, stockholm and san fran next…join us here! spots are filling up 🙂
i have to say, my favorite part of the planning process is working with the decor gals. it’s so interesting to watch them each come up with their own unique ideas that feel like their city. this time around we worked with two extremely lovely ladies, chelsea from oh my deer (obsessed with her handwriting!) and caroline brewer. they adorned the tables with simple greens (which i am a big fan of) and even made these gorgeous dyed name tags for each student.
and can we talk about this smilebooth backdrop that the girls hand dyed! so so gorgeous and fitting for nashville. we put that thing to good use on our break times…

elise recommended we bring the barista parlor into the mix. we had iced coffee available for everyone in the morning. their branding is spot on, i just really wish we had more time so we could’ve visited their actual shop.
one of my previous blogshop students gave me a bag of nola granola and i was instantly obsessed. we tracked them down to put one flavor in each person’s goodie bag. these would make a great addition to a housewarming basket. check out their packaging here.
candles are always nice to have around the house. and getting them as a gift is even more fun. we handed out these from oil & wax.
we can all appreciate good packaging. these chocolate bars from olive and sinclair were beautiful and delicious.
the peach truck drove up next to our studio during our afternoon break. it was the very last day of peach season so we got lucky it was available. each student got to grab a brown bag full of peaches off the back of the truck and relax outside for a while. this truck would be so great to have at your next backyard party.
really into these funky pastel letter sets from natsumi. they are right up my alley. normally, i hold my pen like a weirdo, but angela caught me trying to hold it like a normal person here. (it still looks weird, huh? ha)
thanks for showing us a great time, nashville. we have gotta get back there next year.
