PARTY ON :: fun with laura hooper calligraphy and valley & co.

We always get a kick out of collaborating with fun artists whom we’ve gotten to know over the years and earlier this month we had the pleasure of hosting the ultra talented Laura Hooper Calligraphy Workshop in Seattle. We’ve always admired Laura’s talents so sharing in an evening of learning and beauty was right up Aleah and Katie’s alley. We brought on a superb team to help make it happen – many thanks to our sponsor Bing {we love how much they support creative endeavors!}, The Yacht Club on Lake Union, Alyssa Wilcox Photography, Trophy Cupcakes, and Pedersen’s Event Rental.

With spring on the brain Aleah went to town dressing each table with sweet pink peonies that just hit the flower market, fringed peachy tulips, soft blue linens and mercury glass that market each student’s place setting wonderfully.

Aleah created an effortless and delicious nibbles display, with French cheeses, truffles, Trophy cupcakes, stroofwaffels {our favorite thing to eat in Amsterdam!}, and fruits and fizzy lemonades topped with prosecco. Yum!

All of the ladies were so eager to learn from Laura and she did a fantastic job walking us through each letter in the alphabet and sharing her tips and expertise. Aleah’s been practicing since the class – I’m thinking that maybe I can eek out more calligraphy studying while Ava sleeps? Maybe? :)
