Women Crush Wednesday: Megan George author of The Modern Terrarium Workshop

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

#wcw I don't crush often but when I do I blog about it! Last Friday I spent my evening at West Elm Southpoint indulging in hand-spun cotton candy, mocktails, cookies, photo booth sessions and amazing company but even with all of this excitement there was still more and by more I mean #themost, this was all humbly hosted by one of my all-time local favorites The Zen Succulent. All the festivities were in celebration of the launching of The Zen Succulent's gorgeous new book Modern Terrarium Studio. This was one of the most exciting events I've been to this year! I've been anxiously awaiting Wednesday just so I can share this event by saying...I'm wcw-ing on Megan George Co-Owner and Creative Director of @thezensucculent and most recently the author,creator, genius behind the newly released book Modern Terrarium Studio.

Megan is an inspiration and she glows from the inside out and it translates in everything she does! Without a doubt it's why she and everything around her does and will continue to flourish!

North Carolina Museum of Art + The Zen Succulent

Saturday, May 30, 2015

Last night it was about 75 degrees, only mildly humid but occasionally a generous breeze would come through keeping the temperature and mood as zen as the terrarium building workshop taking place outside at the North Carolina Art Museum.
There wasn't a boring moment but the atmosphere was serene. The signature cocktail was being generously poured and Michael Jackson's voice was just loud enough to jam in the company of friends ready for laughing, drinking and terrarium building. It was truly the perfect way to transition into the weekend. The Zen Succulent continues to amaze us with all of their knowledge and talent working with terrariums and plants.
Co-owner Megan George was prepared to get her hands dirty as she walked a sold out event of 50 guests sharing step by step how to build the perfect terrarium. She offered tips on keeping your succulents alive to keeping the prickly cacti variation of your succulents from prickling you, all tips she shares in her upcoming book "The Modern Terrarium" which I can't wait to get my hands on!

I love, love, love succulents and air plants but I have quite honestly killed more than 15 of them, I hope these will last because this is the cutest terrarium ever! Thanks to Megan's expertise and tip sharing at yesterdays workshop I think I might be well equipped to give these sweet little thangs some longevity!

Thank you to The Zen Succulent for inviting Jade + Ginger to join in on the fun, we loved every second of it!
