Our day began with a beautiful hot beverage bar including creamy hot chocolate with home made maple marshmallows, Calgary Heritage Roasters Coffee, and tea; and super tasty morning pastries!
As our attendees arrived, they were able to get cozy in our cuddle corner we filled with holiday pillows and warm blankets, and get to know the other attendees.
Our styling stations were all set with a styling board, December calendar, fresh greens, styling blocks, and a special gift for each!
Our friend Tavia got us started with a quick tutorial on her own styling board, teaching us how to make our designs our own!
Our attendees were able to pick pieces from our styling bar to help complete their flat lay designs. We had lots of holiday decor, and of course our maker friends hooked us up with some fantastic holiday garlands, cards, tags, and ornaments.
We were able to plan and design our own boards, work together, and
even had a fun challenge to complete with teams!!
Our holiday lunch was filled with comfort food! What a lovely way to enjoy lunch with everyone at our holiday styled table.
We are so thankful to have Melanie join us and take photos of everyone's designs, and some fun behind the scenes as well!
