Events + Louisville: Christmas Workshops at the Green House Studio

Even though I’m still coming to terms with the fact that the holidays are upon us, I’m attempting to embrace the addition of the Christmas radio station to my presets and the presence of holiday decorations in every store. I’ve also made sure to reserve a spot for one of my new favorite traditions (it’s only been a year but now that I’m signed up for year two, it’s officially a tradition) – making my own wreath with the gals of the Green House Studio. green-house-creative-studio-holiday-gathering-002Unknown-2It’s no secret around here that I have a major girl crush on every thing that Jaclyn Journey and Whitney Neal put together but their holiday workshops really take the cake. They round up everything you need (and much more) to make your own special wreath. All kinds of greenery and berries, ribbons and other fun stuff to get crafty. I held on to last year’s creation far longer than I should have but I loved seeing it when I got home every day.

It’s a lot of fun to go with family or friends (last year I did both – my pal Caitlin and my mother-in-law both came) and see what they come up with. Jaclyn – who is insanely talented with all things floral – is there for moral and professional support and Whitney will snap a fab pic of your handiwork when you’re done. Plus there’s wine, hot chocolate and a solid array of snacks.


Here’s all the details and the link to save your spot. I’m signed up for Sunday if you want to join me and Caitlin again this year!

When: Sunday, November 29th from 2-4pm, Monday, November 30th from 6-8pm, and Tuesday, December 1st from 6-8pm

Where: Green House Creative Studio at 1205 East Washington Street, Suite 105

The ladies at the Green House Studio invite you to an afternoon of holiday wreath making. All pine, greenery, ribbons, wreath forms, and supplies will be provided. Create something of your own for $85. For those interested in wrapping gifts, a station stocked with paper, ribbons, and gift wrapping supplies will be available for an additional $40 (10 packages max.)

Little treats and warm drinks will be served. Sign up here.

Louisville + Events: The Vogue St. Matthews Holiday Walk

The high temperature today is going to be 75 degrees so it’s especially weird to be posting a graphic with snow sprinkled on it but hey, the holidays are here whether the weather likes it or not.

This Friday, November 6th is one of my favorite events to kick off the holiday season – the Vogue St. Matthews Holiday Walk. The stores of the Vogue Center plus a bunch of others along Lexington Road keep the lights on late (from 6 to 9 pm) and roll out their holiday goodies. One of my favorite stops is always Colonial Designs to get inspired by their stunning Christmas decorations (#goals). I also like to get extremely aspirational in Paper Source – dreaming up elaborate Christmas cards and wrapping ideas (once again #goals).

The gals at my favorite gift shop Dandelion will be offering 15% off that night along with drinks and treats. So stop in and knock the first gift off your holiday shopping list or just do what I do and grab a little something for yourself.

This is always a great excuse to get some girl friends together to do a little shopping before grabbing dinner or drinks. And hey, this year you probably won’t even need to wear a coat.
