From CJ's by the Square: Hosted by our neighbors, we hosted an afternoon gathering of local couples to inspire and socialize.

Understated floral arrangements by the Enchanted Florist of ivory blooms & greenery accented the many fireplaces & grand staircase. Silver, ivory & champagne linens created an elegant space for guests to gather while sampling a menu that included BBQ Pork Sundae, Chicken Parmesan Meatballs, Nashville Hot Chicken Sliders, and Champagne Floats at the bubbles bar. Cake samples from Wolfe Gourmet Cakes made for a sweet finish to the celebration.

A Recap of the Nashville Bride Guide Flower Crown Workshop

Thursday, August 17, 2017

Last month I co-hosted a Flower Crown Workshop with Details by Margaret at Travellers Rest! The day was so much fun as we had 22 brides, friends/mothers of brides + vendors participating in the day. Each guest was greeted with this beautiful calligraphed sign by Crafted by Heart and seated at the table with a personalized place card by Olivia as well. Margaret placed the beautiful bright flowers and greenery from Geny's Flowers along the center of the tables for everyone to use in their crown. After a quick introduction, Margaret began instructing everyone on how to create their crowns. The process was so fun - everyone had their own unique pace and style of crown! One attendee even made a garland instead of a crown - I was so impressed with everyone's creativity! Duo Ryan + Stacy sang live throughout the workshop to provide some beautiful background music while everyone was crafting. Bar Magnolia provided some fun cotton candy cocktails while Two Fat Men offered up some light bites (the strawberry bruschetta... yum!). We paused mid-workshop to allow all the vendors to tell the brides about their business and after the crafting picked back up for a bit, each guest ventured out to the gorgeous Travellers Rest gardens to get their headshots taken with their completed flower crown! Take a look at all of Ryan Tolbert's photos below and stay tuned for annoucements on more upcoming workshops!
