Greetings sweet friends! I have ALL the new and exciting details to share with you of my upcomming workshop event & you can register TODAY!!!
The weekend will "kick off" with a Thursday evening Southern Belle Soiree located at the Hampton Inn & Suites in the historic district . I have blocked off group discounted rooms for those that are attending. Upon arrival each Belle will receive a welcome packet with the schedule of weekend events, walking maps, site seeing brochures, restaurant and shopping info, as well as your tickets to the Cupcake party/Vendor Fair, and Petticoats & Parasols workshop.
Savannah is well known for being a VERY haunted city. I will be setting up a private guided walking ghost tour for those of you that are interested in joining in on the fun. I've done several of these in the past, and they are sooo much fun!
Friday day will be your own day of leisure & site-seeing, shopping, and "taking in" the beautiful scenery of Savannah. I will provide you with a "must see" list of places I highly recommend you visit.
Friday night Im tickled pink to be hosting a CUPCAKE PARTY/Vendor Fair at the fun and fabulous Back in the Day Bakery!!!!!
I love & adore Cheryl Day the owner of this vintage "step back in time" neighborhood bakery. You can read more about Cheryl by visiting her blog Buttercream & Roses. The vendor fair will be open to the public through ticket sales.
Saturday the "Main Event" will begin very early. A luxurious charted bus will pick up the Belles early Saturday morning from the hotel and take you to the Ford Plantation. There you will have a guided bus tour of the gorgeous property, create fabulous workshop projects, and have an elegant sit down luncheon. Dinner will be provided later in the evening as well as yummy snacks throughout the day.
Sunday will be a day of weekend reflections, hugs & goodbyes, and joyous celebration of new formed friendships.
With great excitment I am happy to introduce my two FABULOUS instructors that I am thrilled and honored to have teaching along side me.
Tiffany's class : Sweet Savannah Silhouette.
Learn the art of collage using this sweet Savannah Silhouette, and creating a framed 8x10 masterpiece for your home! Embellished with millinery, vintage wallpaper, vintage laces, buttons, ephemera and rhinestones, this pretty collage will enhance any room.
Christine's class : Peekaboo Petticoat
Scarlett had a secret or two beneath her Petticoat, and she was always the Belle of the Ball! Using fabrics, bits of lace, vintage millinery, and layers of tulle, we will make a table top mannequin with a ribbon surprise!
Learn my techniques for using different fabrics to create a mini costume, and bit of millinery and ribbon to embellish.
Jennifer's class : Pretty Plantation Parasol
Many many years ago when southern ladies planned for a day outing whether meeting with friends, strolling thru the park, shopping, or leisurely pushing their baby in a buggy on a beautiful day, they were bustled in hoop skirts & gowns, wore bonnets and gloves, and most always carried their parasol. On a warm sunny day a lady tends to glisten and she must always have her parasol to protect her from the sun and heat. Parasols were a part of fashion and an important accesory to a ladies wardrobe.
In this class you will recieve a blank parasol for you to adorn, decorate and create your own fabulous parasol using fabrics of your choice, ribbon, trim, millinery, and vintage found objects. This will be a one of a kind assemblage piece that will be beautiful to hang in your studio, a small decorative corner, or wherever your heart desires.
In this class I encourage everyone to decorate to YOUR taste and style!
Cost for this weekend event is $385 and is pre-paid and non-refundable. Cost for new friendships, giggles & laughter, fun memories, fabulous sponsor goodie bags, prizes & giveaways, particpating in inspiring & creative swaps is PRICELESS!!!!
