We fell in love with Waverly Estate after an epic styled shoot this summer, and after getting to know the owners, we knew we wanted to hold an event at this darling 1840s Antebellum home. At the beginning of the month, Mom and I had so much fun hosting a holiday wreath making workshop to kick off the Christmas season! Our participants were SO creative, making the most beautiful fresh wreaths garnished with fruit, pinecones, magnolia leaves and more. My brother, Christian, shared his talent by creating many of the fresh fruit arrangements you’ll see below (his eye for design will blow your mind!) We tried to give all of the decor an organic feel to match the style of the historic home. I especially loved the fresh fruit arrangement over the door.
We’d like to give a special shoutout to our amazing vendors!!
