I’m so excited to share this calligraphy workshop with you guys! Back in October I felt a pressing need to contact Tahjah of Quaint and Whim Photography about doing a calligraphy workshop. I felt a little crazy about sending Tahjah, a person I only knew off of Instagram, and asking her if she had any desire to do a calligraphy workshop. As fate had it, she was in the beginning stages of planning a calligraphy workshop in November. After meeting Tahjah, I knew our friendship was meant to be. She is a person who is driven and so very creative. She believes in intentional and purposeful decor. And if that wasn’t enough, she loves baking pies just as much as I do. Guys, you gotta meet Tahjah, she’s the sweetest soul who is doing amazing things with her business.
At our meeting, Tahjah told me that she wanted the theme of the workshop to be about “gathering”. She wanted a home feel with a french country house vibe. We decided to incorporate lots of greenery, wood pieces, and french style linens. I provided all the decor and Tahjah brought the delicious food and her calligraphy skills.
In terms of the decor I created for this workshop, I wanted to contrast the white walls of the venue with lots of greenery. I created a lattice dripping with greenery from the ceiling. From there, the table was filled with potted herbs, candles, and vintage bottles. To keep with the look we wanted, I painted and distressed pots for the workshop to give it a rustic feel. For the the dessert table, I used my vintage crates and cake stands, to create varying heights and to continue with the theme.
I hope you guys like the pictures! Check out Quaint and Whim to see her work in photography and calligraphy. http://www.quaintandwhim.com
