Gathered and Foraged Winter Arrangements + A Retreat for Creatives

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These stunning arrangements were all made by The Alchemy of Hospitality (my last workshop + retreat, which was held in late October) students. Rachel and Lauren from Sweet Root Village led everyone through the woods on a foraging adventure, and then, using only their foraged foliage and berries, and a few blooms available at your local grocer, they taught everyone how to put together a stunning wintry table centerpiece. (Lauren and Rachel also took these gorgeous photos)! Although everyone started with the exact same ingredients, each design was so unique and different; I love them!

We designed in 2-quart laurel crocks, handmade by our partners at Farmhouse Pottery. Farmhouse Pottery is based in Vermont, and I simple love their work & supporting them! I’m slowly but surely adding their perfect kitchen + table items to our home. And we used forged iron shears from Bomisch. These iron shears cut almost anything, and they are so beautiful! Check out Morgan’s holiday collection – I’m in love with everything! I’m so incredibly grateful for Morgan’s support of A Daily Gathering over the past several years…I love spreading the Bomisch love <3

If you’re looking for inspiration this holiday season, think outside the box. Dried flowers and foliage, berries, wheat, dried flower pods, ferns, some evergreen, paired with a few neutral blooms make a stunning centerpiece. Nature is bountiful, even this time of year! And when you arrange together these (otherwise neglected) bits of foliage, you will undoubtedly create a masterpiece!

And a little announcement for my friends: I’m co-hosting a retreat for creative folk with my dear friends Lauren and Rachel (Sweet Root Village) and Alyssa (Alyssa Anne Photography). THRIVE Creatives Retreat will be held January 22-25, 2016, and is designed for ALL creatives who wish to set aside time for growth, planning, rest, refreshing, and encouragement. We have some awesome workshops planned, including branding by Jen Olmstead from Tonic Site Shop, running a creative business by Lauren from Sweet Root Village and Char from Char Co., and a styling & photography workshop! We have a few tickets available, and would love to see you there; hope you can join us in January!

    These are so gorgeous. The berries really add so much to the arrangements, I think.

    Thank you, Elise! I agree about the berries; I'm so happy the ladies were able to find them in the wild!!! 🙂
