As someone who has been around flowers her entire life in one way or another, it’s pretty clear I have a deep love for them. So when I heard that Julie Abrera, from Beaumont House Design, was hosting a Spring Floral Workshop, I jumped at the chance to photograph it!!
Julie loves flowers even more than I do and when she’s not foraging for local treasures or working those finds into her designs, she’s hosting workshops several times throughout the year. I was lucky enough to take one of her workshops awhile back, and was blown away by the experience. I knew that this one would prove to be just as amazing, and I was right!!
Elizabeth Mock, the owner of Modern Mercantile in Berryville VA, was kind enough to open her doors to Julie and her attendees, and I have to say, the space was absolutely perfect!! Her store is utterly darling, and I definitely recommend stopping in if you find yourself in Clarke County. I picked up a gorgeous necklace and spent some time drooling over her terrarium building station!
All of the women who took part in the workshop did an incredible job , creating their centerpieces. Watching each woman select blooms and bring their vision to life was a pretty cool thing to witness. You could see the pride and excitement build and their flowers came together, and even more impressive was how every arrangement turned out so different from the one next to it.
Be sure to sign up for Julie’s newsletter and follow Beaumont House Design on Facebook so that you don’t miss out on the next workshop!
