SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY: STEMTATIONS | SAN DIEGO PHOTOGRAPHER

THE STORY

Stemtations San Diego, is a creative plant and floral design service. I met Cynthia, the artist behind Stemtations through Instagram when I came across posts about her succulent workshops. I reached out to her and we agreed to collaborate on some photos together during a workshop she had scheduled at Bolt Brewery. After a rainy weekend, I was excited to hang out in Bolt's outdoor tasting room.

THE PLANTS

Meeting the artist, Cynthia, was a real treat. I can tell she is passionate about what she does. Before the workshop, we chatted a little bit about her business, she does everything from floral and plant designs for weddings, to interiorscaping, light landscaping, and of course the creative workshops.

Move over Wine and Paint Nights, Beer and Succulents are now the rage! Cynthia has hosted workshops at several San Diego Craft Breweries, and has many more scheduled for the coming weeks. I have to admit, I was a bit envious that I didn't get to create my own globe, but being behind my camera and seeing how much fun everyone else was having, wasn't so bad ;)

 

THE BEER

I arrived a little early because of course I wanted to sample Bolt IPA batch 16...yes you heard right. Bolt creates a new IPA recipe every batch! Being an IPA girl myself, I think that's especially cool since I will have something new and different to taste every time I visit.

THE FINISHED PRODUCT

Aren't these stunning? I am totally going to get a group of friends together to do one of these. As the days are getting warmer, creating some plant art in the fresh air with a cold beer sounds pretty great. Thank you Stemtations and Bolt Brewery for the warm welcome!
