earlier this month, we held blogshop over in atlanta at amy osaba’s studio. i met amy a few years back and was really inspired by her floral business, so i was really happy it worked out to teach in her pretty space. her team made the space feel alive with greenery everywhere, and a cool hand painted wood backdrop with a real flower installation running up the side.

for the hang out area, blue eyed yonder brought over their wonderful vintage rentals for everyone to get comfortable and chatty with each other during the breaks.
