Let’s be honest – flower crowns look fantastic on everyone and when placed on your head, you instantly feel regal, like a queen! We teamed up with crafting specialists, Austin Learnshop and Alejandra Hill for our first ever craft workshop to learn how to make flower crowns like a pro – hosted at South Congress Hotel on September 14th.

We hosted the event at South Congress Hotel – which was the perfect setting! The community table has access to the wait staff for cocktails and snacks, there is plenty of natural lighting and it’s open to the lobby, offering a laid-back vibe to attendees.

We loved how the interior design of the space allowed an easy setup! We lined up the silk flowers in a row down the middle and kits in front of each seat.

Alex led the workshop while we all enjoyed getting to know everyone while crafting. Rosé was definitely a table favorite, as were the truffle fries. My Event is The Bomb brought the photo booth and their rep, Nicole stayed to make her own crown. See the photo booth fun HERE!
