Lemons, Smiles and Happiness Abound
Intrigued Experience 2023 was held at The Tidewater Inn in Easton, Maryland on November 13-15, 2023. If you missed the wrap up of Day 1 or Day 2, start HERE or HERE and then come back to read all about day 2. Day 3 started with a morning greeting from Sarah and then we had a little story time with Amy McCord Jones and a great talk about color enhanced florals by Jetfresh.
After our morning sessions, our attendees were off to their morning workshops. First up was our favorite sisters from Ireland, the ladies from Kay's Flower school, teaching our attendees the art of constructing the perfect bouquet. Amazing!
We also the pleasure of learning the Tools of the Trade from our friend, Sue Davis from Fresh Designs Florist.
It's Lunch Time
The Day 3 lunch break provided attendees with an opportunity to pause, savor some refreshments, and engage in conversations with both new acquaintances and familiar faces. The vibrant hues introduced by Nuage's linens brought a captivating burst of color to the room. Following the break, attendees returned to the workshops to conclude the day's activities.
After lunch, attendees headed to the last workshop of the Intrigue Experience. Teddy Manuel who came all the way from the Phillipines to educate our attendees gave a wonderful presentation all about his massive ceiling installations. And, then we had a wonderful closing ceremony with a Q&A session and a little fun with a "Guess Which Designer Made This Bouquet" game. Sarah ended the afternoon with an annoucement that next year's Intrigued Experience will be held in Florida!
Dinner with Friends
The end our three days came together with a dinner with friends. Attendees, educators, floral and production team members all came together to enjoy a wonderful dinner and chat over cocktails. The three days just flew by, but we all had a wonderful time and can't wait until next year's event.
We will see you again next November, back at Tidewater Inn for Intrigued Experience 2023!
