What do you call a group of friends who forever inspire you, who create beauty with their hands and know no creative bounds, honor each other's creative calling, and offer endless support at the times you need it most?
I call them Flower Friends.
One year ago, I took a leap of faith with my business and bought a ticket to Intrigued - A Hands On Experience, and have never looked back. It was here, at the Intrigued Experience that I met my life-long flower friends whom i just adore and cannot imagine being on this journey without. There was no question whether to attend again this year, and i am fresh off a glorious four days in flower heaven with my flower besties.
All conferences/workshops are not created equal. I love Intrigued because it speaks to my creative pursuits and challenges me to design outside of my creative realm. It's a conference for floral design, styling, and business education. It brings together the leaders in the wedding industry to guide you in hands-on design work, class room-type learning, and beautiful inspiration everywhere you look. Best of all? Those Flower Friends I told you about. They are there experiencing it all right along with me.
So here's to those that inspire you, and those that understand your struggles, and here's to those that make your world a prettier place to be.
