It’s kinda hard to put the Boston workshop weekend into words.
Though I’ve done several workshops across the country and had a great time everywhere, this weekend changed things. For me, for the workshopper’s lives and businesses, and for the Boston foodie and assistant.
We had an amazing – life and business – altering time.
And because of this workshop, I’m taking these travelling workshops in a bit of a different direction. I’ll explain more about that soon, but for now, I’d like to share, thank, and support the wonderful people who made this special weekend possible.
Allison did a fantastic job styling the space with some awesome gold and white chevron runners and white ranunculus and pink anemones (I now know what they are and I’m obsessed).
The whole space really came together with these touches. Not to mention she was on top of everything and managed to spend time in the group discussions as well.
Meanwhile, Sophie cooked and baked her way into all of our hearts. Her meals were healthy, light, satisfying, and perfectly suited to everyone’s dietary needs.
I mean, common. That lunch looks like a Bon Appetit spread.
She also made clementine cake which was a big hit among many other awesome dishes.
I’ll be honest, Sophie’s adorable personality and gourmet menu has set a high bar for future Foodies.
Here’s some more goodness: she’ll be sharing the recipes from the weekend in the coming weeks on her blog so we can all make our own Sophie meals.
Another element that made the weekend truly special was the vintage china. Phebe of Making Me Events lent her mix and match vintage plates. It was incredible to have such beautiful pieces to serve and sip from.
Plus, she is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met.
In each of the tea cups we were also blessed to have hot chocolate from The Ticket Kitchen.
Though the hot chocolate is awesome on it’s own, we got a little creative and turned them into flavored mochas by mixing them with coffee.
Then there were the goodie bags.
My Commander in Chief, Jen, decided to take things to the next level by reaching out to small businesses.
So in addition to Jess LC totes, we had super cute little letterpress care packages sent by Sarah of Parrott Design Studio.
(If you are a small business owner looking to share your goodies at future workshops, please reach out to Jen at hello(at)with-intention.com.)
Tomorrow or Thursday (depending on my travel tomorrow back to Chicago) I’ll go over the workshop content itself.
For now, I’d like to thank the wonderful women mentioned above who made our time so memorable.
