Blogshop Atlanta : Decor + Details

(Top photos by Angela Kohler for DLF, floral photos by Tami, the rest by me)
Event: Blogshop ATL (Check for a class in your area!) taught by the fun and creative genius duo – Angela Kohler and Bri Emery.

Venue: Big Studio (a stunning space in downtown Altanta)
Florals: By the talented Tami Ramsay
Interns: New friends Savannah and Gina

Decor Details: I worked with Tami on the decor for blogshop. After creating a color palate, she came up with the beautiful arrangements, and I took care of the following:
Hanging Ribbon Chandelier – I used three wooden rods tied at the corners to form a triangle shape, and added wide ribbon and crepe paper strands all the way around. It was hung using thick cord.
Fabric confetti – Fabric strips + ribbon cut into small squares and scattered along the tables.
Smilebooth backdrop – I actually strung three bright pink hula skirts together, cut a bunch of fabric strips and draped over the top. A little modge podge held them in place. Hula skirts are basically a bunch of raffia and creates the instant volume:) 
It was so fun for me to a get a little creative re-fuel just by hanging out with these gals. Not to mention, they are so laid back and loads of fun:) They put a lot of heart into their work and every student always leaves a happy camper. I would say its well worth your dollar to take a weekend to learn amongst the greats! Check out Bri and Angela’s newly launched site here.

True Beauty Files: I refuse to say Oxblood…

Okay I know the color “oxblood” is all the rage but I simply cannot bring myself to say the word. It might have to do with the fact that I am sqeamish. So here you are… a set of photos in oxblood burgundy, wine, maroon what have you pants…

Evenings are way too short here with the 5pm sunset so we offset the winter depression with lots of eggnog and christmas music. Another way to beat the winter blues? Invite a bunch of your friends over for good food, drinks, and Christmas cheer:) 
 And although I LOVE the mild winters here in Atlanta, I have to admit my midwestern heart misses the snow in December. Just a tad envious of those of you that got dumped over the weekend. I am dying to go sledding……I haven’t grown up yet.
Thank you all for the beautiful responses and ideas to the last post! I am amazed by humanity sometimes, and I am thankful for getting to hear about your tidings of good will.
