Walking up to The Barn at Springhouse gardens, I was blown away with the beautiful display I found. From the pallet constructed table, with pillows for seating to the chandelier and vintage furniture inside the barn, I was delighted with the atmosphere and I only wish this place has been around 8 years ago when I got married. Although in the last two years, The Barn has become a fantastic wedding venue, I was there for a “blogger brunch.” Is there a more appropriate meal for bloggers to share together? I think not. Certainly not any meal more alliterative.
Outside of the amazing food, there was a gorgeous lemonade and mimosa bar, complete with fresh berries to add to your glass. A highlight of the event for me was making flower crowns! A table full of fresh flowers and baby’s breath, and all the supplies necessary to create a nymph-worthy flower crown were provided, courtesy of Miss Molly Vintage.
At our place settings lining the table that looked like it came out of a dream, were little bunches of lavender and a hand painted replica of the barn by Kayla Weber Art. Her family owns the Barn and it was her creative genius behind much of the décor, as well as the idea to utilize The Barn for events at all. Way to go, Kayla! Talk about vision!
As we went around the table, sharing what each of us did for a living, what our blogs were about, etc. it became clear how very different each of us were. But even in our differences, we share a common ground – the creative expression of blogging and sharing what you love with a community of people. There’s nothing quite like it! The best part about being with a bunch of bloggers is that nobody looks at you funny when you try to take the perfect flat lay of your table setting, or update your Instagram story. Everyone is doing the same thing!
In addition to some amazing gift bags they sent home with us, courtesy of the local businesses I’ll link below, we were each gifted with these adorable succulent plants from Springhouse Gardens. Not only are they sturdy plants that don’t need much water (perfect for my brown thumb!) but they multiply and their blossoms can be potted separately to share with friends! What a beautiful little plant!
The event wouldn’t be complete without some professional photography. All of the gorgeous photos you see here were taken by Kirstie Dunston Photography and I was more than a little impressed by how she captured the magic of the morning. I’m so glad that she did so I can share the visuals of everything that words fail to describe accurately.
Please go give each of these bloggers and businesses a visit, a follow, subscribe, whatever you can do to support and show them love today, please do. They are a fantastic group of creatives and I for one, am grateful for their classy presence in Lexington.
