Our Venue | Just outside of Dallas, The White Sparrow is a beautiful, vintage white barn venue located in Union Valley, Texas. It is nestled in an open field surrounded by huge oak trees. The grounds have a rustic, country charm that host flower gardens, a grove, an old feed shed and even a swing. With all the perfect rustic details, The White Sparrow Barn is the perfect location to inspire us for our two day workshop together.

Testimonials | Hear what past attendees have to say about their time at Bloom Bash.
"The styled shoot was so amazing. Ashley and Michaela put so much thought into the details. I've never been apart of a styled shoot before, but I've wanted to host my own style shoot and Bloom's set a really high standard. I loved the flowers! I think everything from the vintage table to invitations was very fitting for the venue.
The organization of the workshop was amazing. I am a high energy / anxious person and I never felt bored or like I was waiting for the next thing. The time flew by, the speakers were great, slide show and the booklet was extremely helpful. I've referenced it more than once since the workshop. I can't tell you how much I've talked about it and used that experience in my daily business." -- Kathryn Hager, little h creative.
"Attending Bloom was easily one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself, both personally and for my new business. I gained so much from this workshop and it easily exceeded all of my expectations. I learned how to make my business better from the inside out, received so much practical advice and implementation tips from Michaela and Ashley and met so many other likeminded women in creative fields from my area.
This workshop gave me the confidence and reassurance that I made the right decision in starting a business, and that I'm fully capable of running a business. Michaela and Ashley are so wonderful to talk to, so easy to connect with and so supportive- they have so much useful knowledge and business know-how; there is so much to gain by attending this workshop and it has truly been life-changing, especially in the relationships I've emerged with. I could not recommend Bloom enough to anyone looking to learn a little more about the creative industry, connect with other individuals who know your struggle, deepen your understanding of your business and anyone looking for an amazing day filled with tons of encouragement and education." -- Morgan Miller, Spreading Lovely.
