REAL TALK WORKSHOP | ANDERSON HOUSE | WASHINGTON D.C.
If you’ve been following me for a while then you know that my friend Kir and I met on Instagram, met in real life, and have been friends ever since. You can follow us on Instagram (#Tubenfeld). I’ve traveled with her to quite a few out of state weddings and have enjoyed dancing to Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber with her at 3 am while eating pizza in New Orleans… okay well you probably didn’t know that last bit. Anyways, we’ve got each others backs when it comes to business and chatting about everything. In this business you realize that sometimes you want to vent and get the dirty out… you want to high five each other on wins and feel the YAYs with them – because everyone wants and needs support in small business – and in life in general, let’s be real.
A while ago, Kir had told me she wanted to host a workshop. I was like – girllll you go but also girllll when are you ever actually IN D.C. and not jetting off to who knows where, Cuba, Utah, New York, New Hampshire – (you think I’m kidding??) haha… but after a bunch of work and help from Sarah of Sincerely Pete Events (CHECK HER OUT – she’s a BOSSSS – @sincerelypete) The Real Talk Workshop came to be! I was honored to take behind the scenes photos at the workshop and get to hangout with some incredible business owners and workshop attendees all day!! Check out these shots from the Anderson House workshop!!
OKAY HOW CUTE IS THIS!? This airstream can be rented for your event! It’s called Toastworthy and it’s a mobile cocktail bar! Kir, Sarah, and all of the attendees!
OH EM GEE. The not so glamorous side of a styled shoot is when you have to unwrap, remove stickers, and unpack… every single utensil, glass, cup, plate in sight and then repack all of it at the end. Get it girls! AND THEN THIS HAPPENED!!!!! Taylor and Billy got ENGAGED!
Yes. We ate these later… because vanilla macarons are bae. We obviously had no fun. Some of our lovely vendors!Congratulations Kir, Sarah, and the team for pulling off one heck of a workshop!Shoutout to this amazing list of vendors! Go ahead and find them all on IG – you know you want to!
