Well, is there any better to way to kick off our third and final day of The School of Styling than with a mimosa bar?! We don't think so!
McAlister-Leftwich was all dressed up, and ready for the party! Stunning furniture by The Prettiest Pieces, the gorgeous floral accents by Rebecca Rose Events, and that signage by Happy Tines could not have been more perfect!
One of the really exciting parts about The School of Styling is that we always have our amazing photographers capture headshots for each of our attendees - thanks Ally + Bobby! So not only will they leave with business knowledge and hands-on skills, but professional photos to really propel their business! Our gals even got hair and makeup by the Teighla Norris team, such fun!
Once our attendees were glammed up and their head shots complete, we headed back into the classroom for our last day of speakers + sessions! Jeannie Sullivan was back with another incredibly inspiring session.
Then it was time for another delicious lunch provided by Holly Tate Catering. All of the gorgeous arrangements created by our attendees acted as the perfect centerpieces! Best of all, it was so great hearing of all of the amazing conversations and seeing the friendships that had formed over the last few days!
Whitney Hawkins, art director of the Simplified team (who also provided our attendees with those amazing Simplified Life books, cute pens, and adorable pineapple pins!) led the afternoon.
After being super inspired (and let's be honest.. a little obsessed with) by the gorgeous signage throughout the week, it was our attendees chance to get a hand-on calligraphy lesson by Caitlin of Happy Tines! While calligraphy is definitely challenging, it is so fun getting to see how each student had their own style and creation!
The end of the third day is always so bittersweet with out time with an amazing group of ladies is coming to an end. There is nothing we love more than seeing our community grow with all of our amazing attendees, and this group was surely wonderful!
In our opinion, the very best part of The School of Styling is the final dinner. Some solid friendships have been formed, all of those big ideas are swirling around in everyone's head, and its just such a joyous evening! Its always filled with hugs, maybe a few tears (only happy ones, of course!) and lots of laughs!
Our mouths are watering over these macarons by Sugar Euphoria! They were SO delicious!
Remember back to the Day 1 recap when we asked our attendees to set an intention for the week, and choose a word to focus on? The final dinner place cards were those words and the perfect reminder of all of the hard work these ladies had accomplished over the last few days!
We surprised our attendees with gorgeous necklaces by Heir Raleigh for the final dinner.
It is no secret that the heart and soul of The School of Styling is made up of the incredible attendees, amazing speakers, and the production team. However, we'd like to extend an extra huge thank you to all of our incredible sponsors that spoil our attendees! The Greensboro gals had some nice goodies!
Thank you again to our sponsors!
