wreath making with kinfolk

Friday, March 28, 2014

A few weeks ago I was able to attend a Kinfolk event here in Chicago. The activity for the night was fresh wreath making. I have never tried my hand at floral design before, but I was seriously into it. Just the smell of all those fresh flowers was enough to make a girl consider a life in a little floral studio. The event was hosted by Amanda Jane Jones of Kinfolk and Kelli Thompson of Fleur Inc, both just the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. I love how my wreath turned out! It has been keeping my apartment springy despite this never ending Chicago Winter. All photos by Jaclyn Simpson.

And the lovely hosts. Such a fun night. Thanks everyone!


  1. This looks like so much fun! I would love to take a wreath making class. The closest I've come to "making" a wreath is buying a pre-made one and hot gluing stuff to it. This is so much more authentic. Also, I think you and Jane are absolutely adorable and I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm excited to follow along :)


  2. That's amazing!! I'm pretty jealous. :) these wreathed are so beautiful! How long will they last?
