My best friend recently invited me to a wreath making class. She told me I HAD to go and that I would love it. I'm constantly surrounded by incredibly creative people and there is a wide gap between their ability and mine, so I was hesitant to go and even more hesitant that I would enjoy it. I expected it might be very frustrating for this non-creative human and maybe even a lot of work, however, I was wrong on all levels!
Hosted by the Perfect Little Store, this wreath making class took place on a Friday night in Germantown. Abbey, the owner of the Perfect Little Store, did a wonderful job making everyone feel like they were capable of making something really beautiful. She had a table full of yummy treats, like cheese plates and macarons, along with wine and other beverages. Needless to say, I needed a little bit of liquid courage to take on the task of making a wreath.
After I got settled with my treats and wine, it was time to conquer the task of creating a beautiful wreath for the holiday season. Abbey provide a variety of different greenery with notes on how much to take at a time. She then guided us through the necessary steps to get started. And, once I got started, it was actually much easier than I thought it would be.
We came and we conquered! Not only did we make some pretty cute wreaths, but I felt like Super Woman after I overcame my lack of confidence in possessing the necessary creativity to make a wreath I’d actually be proud to hang at my home! Yay, me!
Afterwards, we strolled through her adorable little shop. She has the best shop for gifts. Everything in her store was aesthetically pleasing to the senses. From the layout to the tiny details, this girl knows what she is doing. She is incredibly creative and uses her gifts to bring life to others. I love it when people are so intentional about using their gifts.
All in all, it was a beautiful night full of women encouraging women, creativity and a little shopping. All of my favorite things in one place. What could be better?
