I'm so excited to share the images from a gorgeous event I had the pleasure of teaching for Anna Wu, a terrific SF based wedding photographer. Anna has a delightful birthday tradition she shares with her close friends. Instead of throwing a traditional party, each year she has her friends join her to learn a new craft. I'm obsessed with this idea and would love to do something similar with my friends.
The birthday soiree was held in the outdoor courtyard of Anna Wu's gorgeous studio. Florals were all done by Amanda Vidmar Design, I love how she styled delicate single stems using my bud vases. Her bouquets were full of colorful, fragrant flowers that I was totally swooning over.
Anna's friends were all so kind and I had a lovely time teaching them how to carve their spoons. Their energy was infectious, it's always a pleasure to teach a group that is creative and ready to learn.
The finished spoons were beautiful and I left the party feeling so proud of all my "students". I'm confident they will use the skills I taught them to continue carving and expanding on this fun and easy craft.
Thank you, Anna, for inviting me to teach at your birthday soiree! It was a lovely morning spent with a great group of talented people!
