Day two brought us to the super fun design challenge. More then just having photos taken of a styled set, we offer hands on styling and fun 'shopping' at our 'decor store' to help design your own table setting! Check out the photo below of the store!

The beauty of creating a 'decor store' for our attendees to 'shop' from for their table design, is that they can add more, or change it all together. Its fun to watch each of our attendees come up with a team design, and work together to create the aesthetic for their table.

We gathered together and enjoyed a yummy breakfast, gave away some prizes, and dove into the design challenges!
We paired our attendees into groups...each group a photographer and a florist or planner. How brilliant to have a stylist and a photographer together at each table!!
Each of our groups were given a colour from our Hudson Bay Company colour palette. The teams were given a moment to chat about their ideas, and then the challenge began, with a draw for who got to choose from the decor store first!
The challenges of creating a table design can be few or many. Sometimes, the challenges are with the table pieces themselves...not quite the right blue, or the table runner isn't long enough, the centrepiece isn't tall enough! This is why we have a decor store at our workshops!!
With all the fun we have during our styled shoot workshops, I can't help want to plan more, and bring the fun to life time and again! I hope you find our workshops interesting, and want to join us one day too!
don't miss out...get on our list to be notified of upcoming workshops. Some will be full day, two day, or just an afternoon...there will be a different theme, and style to each one...and, if you are a photographer wanting to book a styled session for your next Photographer Workshop...we do that too!!
