Hello Creative Sunday lovers,
Even if the season hadn’t officially started, we organized a Spring edition of the Creative Sunday in early March. This edition took place in Hinterland, a very nice coffee shop in St-Gilles. The cosy atmosphere and the large windows letting the sun coming in (when there was some…) was just perfect to spend the afternoon enjoying a cup of tea while learning how to cook Melo Cakes (do you know those little bowls made of chocolate, biscuits and filled with foam?), to make a day cream and to weave.
In the middle of the main room, there was a very tempting buffet entirely cooked by our food guest Anaïs, from Cokoa. It was made of biscuits and cakes. This is only one side of Anaïs’ skills; this woman can also create “floral pastry” for your events. Feel free to visit her website to discover what she can do.
Let’s do some math here… Imagine 26 participants, plus 3 guests, 4 organizers, 1 photograph and 1 video maker* in the same place, enjoying their afternoon. Then add one CheeseBOX to take funny pictures of them. The result was just a lot of fun!
(* A video introducing the Creative Sunday will be soon released. We can’t wait to share it with you!)
*Beauty workshop with AromaRoots*
Christine, from AromaRoots, is fond of essential oils. She is amazed by the numerous possibilities with natural products and loves to share her knowledge. She came to teach how to make a day cream using essential oils. For more pictures of the beauty workshop, visit Love&Tralala.
*Cooking workshop with Cokoa*
As we introduced her before, behind Cokoa, there is Anaïs, a lovely girl who has a passion for pastry cooking. She likes demonstrating that what may look complicated isn’t. That’s how she thought about cooking Melo Cakes. For more pictures of the cooking workshop, visit Fouettmagic.
*DIY workshop with Mon atelier déco*
Gwendeline, from the blog Mon atelier déco, is a very big fan of DIY. She loves origami, crochet-work, knitting, … But most of all, she loves to decorate (as the title of her blog suggests…). She recently fell in love with the weave technique and wanted to share this with us. Each participant had a small weaving loom and some wool to learn the basics.
This goodies bag was full of great gifts! There was a hair treatment, a lipstick, some risotto rice, a nail polish, a customized key holder, a succulent and a magazine.
