Our Early Summer Floral Day Camp

Earlier this summer, some friends joined us for a Floral Design Day Camp. As everyone arrived we sipped mimosas and ate strawberry scones & peach galettes from fruit I had picked the day before from a local orchard. Using those colors as our palette inspiration, and we jumped into learning about flowers, starting with care and temperament, and into every step of the design process from the how to properly cut flowers to peppering in wispy chocolate cosmos.

While we were working with flowers, Travis had been cooking ingredients for tacos on the smoker, so we ended the day camp with homemade tacos and cold beers. Take a peek at some of the photos we captured, and sign up for the KKDW newsletter to hear about future workshops!

NEW TO KKDW: WELCOME, TRAVIS!

I'm moving up from a one-woman show to a two-person party: please help me welcome Travis to KKDW! Over the past few years, my husband Travis and I have worked independently on our own fabrication businesses while joining forces on larger projects here and there, and now we’re making it official. Very stoked to see where this takes KKDW, and even more stoked to have y’all joining along.

This small change will mean more large-scale fabrication projects, more furniture, new workshops, a forthcoming sister shop for all your utilitarian needs (think: sleek shelf brackets, hooks, table bases, and much more), and best of all... a new branch we're working on called KKDW Ranchito (coming soon!). I can say that the future is out there, and it's all because of you.

And for anyone who has met Travis or seen his work, you already know that he is a rare jewel of multifaceted skills, vision, and consideration. KKDW is lucky to have him.

 

Sounds Like: You Got It

Here's a short list of the songs I've been listening to. These songs are best served over slower mornings with coffee (or bloody marys), and late afternoons right as the sun starts to sink. Hope y'all enjoy. Cheers!
