Last Friday, I had the privilege of attending my first Kinfolk event. They provide different themes for each month’s gathering and December’s workshop theme was Natural Holiday Decor. Kinfolk’s website describes the event as follows:
We are looking to good old-fashioned nature to creatively refresh us, as well as to provide the materials needed for bringing something fresh indoors. The earth’s widespread palette of color and texture are a tried-and-true source for creating unique decor not merely for the holiday season.
Rebecca Gallop, my dear friend who I met in college and has since become a well-known blogger, prop styling, and wedding designer, hosted this particular event. She, along with the ladies of Sweet Root Village, taught us how to bring the outdoors inside and make them into beautiful decorations for the holiday season.
I’m excited to show you some pictures I took from the event! It was a great workshop where fellow creatives came together, ate a great meal, and made beautiful wreaths and garlands.
The location was just around the corner from the National Portrait Gallery and the Spy Museum and is called the Loft at 600 F. You’ll see how beautiful this space is in the next few pictures!
What did I tell you? This loft is darling and super classy! I can’t wait to host the Gathering Project’s first workshop here in January.
After lunch, we started the wreath and garland making! I couldn’t help but snack on some fresh pomegranate and delicious chocolate cake while listening to Lauren teach.
They brought so much fresh greenery from the generous Wollam Gardens. I used cedar branches for my wreath.
As soon as I got home, this wreath went up on my front door. Such a nice touch to the apartment! If you ever get the chance to attend a Kinfolk event, I would highly recommend you do. It was so much fun to taste amazing food, learn a new skill, and meet other creative types! You won’t be disappointed.
