A beautiful 'Christmas in July' Styling and Photography Workshop is coming to Royalla Luxury Farmstay this Winter. You are invited to join me and a very special team for this very special Full Day Workshop in the Country on July 4. It is going to be special indeed…. and TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW 

Have you ever wanted to host a soulful Gathering but don't know where to start? Well I loves to host a gathering and have been doing so for the past three years with the 'eat read love pop up' dinner series and as the host of the Kinfolk Dinner Series in Sydney. For this workshop I have brought together some of the best in the business for this soulful Noel en Juillet 'Christmas in July' gathering workshop at Royalla - a stunning luxury farmstay in the Southern Highlands. With all of the guest speakers experienced in hosting many small and large gatherings, the team will share some of their favourite tips and tricks from creating your event theme, styling your space and table, preparing your menu, photographing your event and sharing on social media and more. 
Join me and my favourite team of experts for an inspiring day in the country where you will learn the art of collaboration, hands on experience styling a beautiful space and table, sharing a Christmas in July feast and then spending the afternoon learning to photograph your food and surrounding areas. At the end of the workshop you will walk away with some styling techniques, manual digital photography skills and have a wonderful time connecting with fellow bloggers, and creative souls over a delicious French style lunch in the country. It will be only a small group of people so you have plenty of time for one on one chats with our expert group sessions and with fellow guests.
