- Imagine waking up here 🌿☀️ Come join us in France at the magical @chateaugudanes for a glorious time of rest and restoration this August. Bask in the wildflowers and soak up the sunshine. Nurture your heart and begin the process to discover (or re-discover) what you love and who you are meant to be in this world as a creative. Our time at the Château will be a journey to find yourself and to remember what your heart beats for; and while there’s no perfect path to get there, I’m pretty sure this the best way you could start. If your heart beats a little faster reading these words, listen to it! It may be time to take a leap of faith, but don’t worry, you won’t be leaping alone. We’re all in this together. . Tickets are available via the link in my profile! You won’t want to miss this. Photo: @chateaugudanes

- AUSTRALIA! 😍 We are SO thrilled that @jonimaflowers will be hosting our first Australian farm to table 2-day class, giving our participants an opportunity to see and experience the foundation of what we do, flower farming! . We will get to spend time with the family and farmers that make it all happen, gather armloads of flowers to create gorgeous arrangements with and eat food grown within a few miles of where we’ll be. . These two days will be magical, transformational and inspiring. On day one we will create beautiful floral compotes, followed by European hand-tied bouquet tutorial and hands-on session on day two. Jonima Flowers is a 25-acre flower farm located in the beautiful southern highlands of Bowral about 20 mins from the centre of town. The family owned farm produces an amazing diversity of flowers, using a mix glasshouse setup, outdoor farming, landscape gardening and natural Australian bush. . We just can't wait for you to experience the all the floral magic at Jonima Flowers! Tickets are available, so go get yours via the link in my profile! . Photo: @abbie_melle at @jonimaflowers

- Onto a new week! It may be January now but it’ll soon be balmy June at our 5 day workshop at Castello di Potentino, a dreamy castle lying in a secret valley in Tuscany (Is this real life?!) . This is the perfect flower adventure to look forward to. Five unforgettable days of memory making in this wonderful castle, built on an ancient Etruscan site and surrounded by unspoiled countryside dotted with vines and ancient olive trees. Together we’ll sleep in amazing rooms, eat local Italian cuisine and rejuvenate our hearts and minds while we learn and create flowers together in this beautiful place. . Castello di Potentino will gently hold our dreams as we sit by the pool or take long walks together, soaking up the glorious June days. Grab your ticket (yes we still have some left!) via the link in my profile, you don’t want to miss this! 👉🏼😍

- I love setting up workshops in places we wouldn’t normally get to flower in, rustic chapels, ancient libraries, stone castles.... Usually, as florists we’re tucked away behind closed doors to hide our hot flower mess during prep for events. . We work in windowless conference rooms, out of storage closets and in the back of refrigerated vans. From dawn to midnight we keep our flowers and clients happy (which is glorious work in of itself) but because of the demand of the job we often don’t get the chance to take in the beautiful things around us. . So I choose the castles and the woodlands, and the chapels and the moors... I choose places we as florists don’t normally get to really see, let alone flower in. . Making flowers for yourself is a transformative thing. When it’s not about the mess or the client, but just you and the flowers and BEING and learning and seeing... This kind of creating changes you from the inside out. . Photo: @ragiandamanda at @bloomtheworkshop last year

- S C H O L A R S H I P 2018: Come take a seat and let me whisper something exciting to you... :) . It’s finally time to announce the WINNERS of our 2018 Ponderosa Workshop Scholarships! . We received over 200 applications from over 26 countries and have been happily overwhelmed and inspired by the stories, struggles, triumphs, dreams and hopes of so many beautiful souls. . We spent the last week pouring over the submissions and while it felt like an impossible task to choose between the submissions, there were a few that called out to me like a beacon of light.... I was hoping for that to be the case. . What I did NOT expect is that I’d have the ability or urgency to choose more than one recipient, but because of the quality and sincerity of the submissions, we have decided to reward a full scholarship for each TYPE of workshop we offer. So this year, we are gifting a seat to one 1:1 Workshop, one Master Class, one Floral Intensive, and one Ponderosa Workshop, as well as partial scholarships as we felt directed. . We are so excited for the recipients of this year’s scholarships and for our community as a whole. 2018 is going to be a good, good year. . Now, let me me introduce the winners of our full scholarships! @meagansevison @_nicoles_dimi_design_ @wildryefarm and @forageflowerstasmania 💗 Florists, artists, flower farmers, mothers and over-comers. I am thrilled for you guys to get to know these incredible women. Now go cheer them on!! Give them all the virtual confetti and hugs! 🎉 Swipe right to see their IG pages and make some new flower friends 💗💗💗 (Tap to see their tags) . We’re all in this together, my sweet community, I’m proud of you, and I love you so. Together, let’s make 2018 the best year ever. Love you, Katie . .

- 2017. It kicked my butt and challenged me in every way. It gave me more than I asked for and made me search for truth and light. I felt a little off kilter most days, like everything had been turned upside down. Initially I tried to right myself, struggling against the uncomfortable lack of control, but then I learned to lean in, realizing over time that I wasn’t being restrained, I was being HELD. I found that I was beginning to enjoy this new perspective. Color looked different while upside down, friendships did too. My heart expanded and I learned a new way of seeing. So...goodbye 2017, I’m thankful for all you taught me, I’m thankful I was able to learn.
