Bloom Bash Nashville

Most of you probably know I'm the co-founder of 
The Bloom Workshop. My business partner, Ashley, and I travel the country equipping and inspiring other women in creative businesses. After getting lots of emails asking about how we both started our businesses (she's a photographer and I'm an interior designer) we decided rather than answering all these emails separately, we should create a workshop that addresses all of the questions people ask and turn it into a two day event where women can come fully immerse themselves in all things business and creativity. It's truly an amazing experience having so many women gathered who are passionate Creatives!

We have our first two-day workshop coming up in NASHVILLE (I've never been, so I'm really excited!) at the gorgeous Riverwood Mansion, which plays host to many TV shows, weddings, and country music stars weddings and parties. So fun! 

For a peek into our workshops, take a look at this beautiful video my friend Nicole created for our last workshop in Dallas. This is truly the why behind what we do at Bloom:

You might be wondering what you would learn at Bloom Bash. Let us fill you in:
  • Two full days of education and learning. Time-tested strategies from industry leaders, practices you can put into action in your business and blog now, and hands-on training. 
  • Branding & Business Class: you will work on developing a mission statement, ideal client, and words to use to describe your business with your fellow attendees. We circle the room to help brainstorm and be your sounding boards!
  • Blogging 101 Session: why should you be doing it? And -- holy wow -- HOW do you possibly do it?
  • Social Media Strategy Class: we get down to the nitty-gritty of how to use Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and more for your business. It’s not always about the number of followers. You’ll learn how to engage the followers you DO have and gain their loyalty!
  • Photography 101 Class: you’re going to leave knowing how to use that camera of yours! Whether you’re a photographer or have a different creative job, we believe upping your skill set is always a way to make you more desirable to clients.
  • Design and Styling Lab: don’t just watch someone do it-- you’ll get design principles, then feel empowered to practice styling vignettes like a pro.
  • Calligraphy Class with Alex Bray of Prairie Letter Shop: take a break from your everyday tasks, put pen to paper and learn a new skill. Maybe you’ll be a natural and start writing hand-written notes to your clients!
  • Floral Arranging Session with Amy Osaba: creating with your hands in a medium you may not work with every day is a sure-fire way to garner inspiration and pick up new skills along the way
  • Styled Photo Shoot: we pull out all the stops by producing a gorgeous inspiration shoot, complete with models, tablescapes, florals, invitation suites, and stunning rings. This is the culmination of everything you learned at Bloom, as all of your skills will come together, helping you photograph and style the pretty details for your portfolio. With experts to help you along the way, this is a safe place to practice and continue learning.
  • Q&A Panel: after our two days together, we’re sure you’ll have some questions, so we set aside ample time to get those burning questions answered from our expert panelists, who you’ll have access to all workshop long.
  • Networking opportunities. Bloom takes pride in featuring speakers and guests who love to share their hearts and success. You will love the warm environment that sets the stage for developing new lasting friendships, mentors, business partnerships, and collaborations.
  • Catered breakfast and lunches on both days of the workshop.
  • Professional headshots of yourself or your team. Ashley Slater Photography will be providing an opportunity for you to have your photos taken for your business or blog.  
  • sweet box of swag and other thoughtful gifts, sprinkled over the two day workshop.
  • Support after the workshop comes to an end. We love to continue working with you even after the workshop is over. Our Facebook page provides a space for attendees to bounce ideas off one another and share success! 
  • Believe it or not, even more surprises than those listed above are in store for our guests!

    Here is our inspiration board for our styled shoot (if you're thinking it looks similar in palette to our wedding, you'd be correct!)

So if you own a small creative business, blog, or shop (or that's your hope for the future!) we'd love to meet you on May 8-9 for Bloom Bash Nashville. You can use the code MND20 for 20% off your ticket, since I'm so grateful you're a reader here :)
