Do you love pretty things, getting crafty, and cheersing with girlfriends? ME, TOO. Hence my enthusiasm for photographer and OCM girl Karyn Kimberley’s new venture with Crystal from Love & Lace: it’s called WRKSHP Creative and their first event is the afternoon of February 12th. “Galentine’s Day” is a stylised event (think Pinterest sprung to life) where you’ll create a dreamy flower crown with professional materials and instruction from Twig & Bloom, enjoy some sweet treats, and get in on the loveliest of photobooth fun, all while sipping a signature cocktail. Oh, and did I mention the Galentine’s Day event is taking place at Thrive Juice Co.? If there’s anything I like more than a cocktail, it’s one that’s made with fresh, cold-pressed Thrive Juice. And that’s not all the afternoon has to offer! I’ve got more to share so read on, meet the girls behind the elevated crafting night concept of WRKSHP... and find out how one lucky @wrkshp.creative follower can win a golden ticket to this most Instagram-worthy event.
WRKSHP's Galentine's Day event offers more than a creative outlet. It's a place where you can feel comfortably social, laughing and chatting with either the bestie you booked with or with like-minded girls you’ll enjoy getting to know-- this city’s getting so big but it’s easy to get in a rut, so going solo is the perfect chance to expand your circle!
The workshop in this WRKSHP is a flower crown full of lush greens and blooming beauties which should appeal to your inner bohemian goddess, and if you think you'll never be able to create a thing of such beauty, Twig & Bloom will prove otherwise. Ooh, don't you just want to grab it and run to the photobooth? Aaaand when I say "photobooth", I mean, a luxuriously decorated space with the beautiful photography of Karyn Kimberley. She and Crystal have chic, proven taste so there shan't be oversized glasses and mustaches on sticks thankyouverymuch, but there will be you looking radiant with your natural smile resulting, perhaps, in a new profile picture. Is that the best swag to leave a party with or what?
But wait. There's more. Actual swag bags. ;)
Look at this smart, kind, creative duo embarking on a fabulous new venture. I've mentioned my dear friend Karyn Kimberley's stunning photography work but Crystal deserves some praise, too. With her detail-driven event planning and design company, Love + Lace, she creates spectacular decor in any space for weddings and parties, and her reviews are all top notch. They've partnered as WRKSHP to offer these creative event nights available to the public, as well as private functions you can book for bridal showers, baby showers, bachelorette parties, or a unique evening out. Their available venues are diverse but one thing you can count on is that every WRKSHP will be stunning and you'll go beyond a DIY instructional and rather, you will make something beautiful.
WRKSHP's Galentine's Day tickets are $100 and include materials, professional instruction, photobooth, snacks, a feature cocktail and swag bag. The event runs 1-4pm. Tickets are already going quick so RSVP HERE. Seeya there!
And because they're in a celebratory mood, Karyn and Crystal want to give you the chance to win a ticket to their Galentine's Day debut event February, 12. To enter, follow @WRKSHP.creative on Instagram and tag your favourite Galentine on their contest post!
