Next week, the lovely ladies of Local Creative will be hosting a Flower Arranging Workshop with Aurora Botanical at the Girl Gift Gather Studio. We met Jenna + Nicole (the founders of Local Creative) last Summer after stumbling across their postcard at a coffee shop in Greenpoint. Upon further research, we discovered their ‘curated lifestyle project’ was the stuff Girl Gift Gather dreams are made of! Florist and founder of Aurora Botanical, Rawana Rihani, has been an inspiration ever since we came across her dreamy floral arrangements, wall hangings, flower crowns and garlands. She’s an /florist/designer/stone fox and we can’t get enough of her creations.
As you can imagine, we’re psyched to have these incredibly talented women working in our studio! Part of our mission at Girl Gift Gather is to offer a space for women to congregate, collaborate and create. We love hosting events ourselves, but we’re also excited to join forces with local makers and creators. In this last year, we’ve had the opportunity to invite all sorts of interesting and extraordinary women over for tea at our studio. Sometimes we make partnerships, sometimes we simply make friends. Either way, we’re always extending ourselves and inviting others in. For us, it’s all about the bigger picture: a community of women who support and share one and other. If you like the look of Local Creative’s beautiful (and knowing them, it will surely be beautiful) event, then we encourage you to buy a ticket. And, if you’re interested in hosting an event, starting a discussion, creating, collaborating or just hanging out and drinking tea — reach out to us. Our doors are always open!
