THE ART OF GATHERING / PARIS, FRANCE / MAY 1ST, 2016
Join us for a slow living workshop in Paris! Together with myself, Joy Proctor (top event designer and stylist), Coco Kliks (fashion designer & our Paris host, chef and city guide) and Audrey of Le Secret d'Audrey (our Paris photographer extraordinaire), you will get an inside look at our creative approaches to The Art of Gathering along with experiencing local life à la Parisienne!
We will spend the day learning and practicing all of the elements that go into making a table as beautiful as the styled shoots we create. The day will begin on the streets of Paris, where Coco will take us to her favorite outdoor markets to shop for seasonal ingredients & florals. We will stop at a secret garden (springtime in bloom!) for a picnic lunch, then on to our dreamy Paris apartment for the day, Chez Coco. Here we will learn brush-lettering with Diva, designing our evening's stationery & place cards, with lovely take-home supplies included. Next we'll practice flower arranging with Joy, exploring the ikebana philosophy of developing a closeness with nature & bringing the outdoors in. We will break for aperitifs & appetizers, reveling in our lovely Paris home for the day. Then we will create an incredible springtime tablescape, using Coco's fantastic collection of antique french tableware, linens, candles, and of course our stunning florals and place cards! All with styling and photography advice throughout the day from the experts to capture our moments of grace. In celebration of our magnum opus, we will sit down to enjoy a traditional french feast prepared by our host, et Bon Appétit!
The Art of Gathering is a slow living workshop, exploring our creativity, learning and practicing new art forms -- but even more it's about the magic that happens when creatives collaborate, when we slow down to enjoy the journey together.
