Southern Adoornments Live

Smokey Mountains, TN

November 15 — November 16, 2024

Get ready for an unforgettable weekend of crafting fun!

Southern Adoornments Live: The Ultimate Crafting Retreat!

Make new friends, enjoy some much-needed “me-time,” and create to your heart’s content!

Southern Adoornments Live is an in-person retreat that’s jam-packed with amazing crafts and painting projects designed to take your door-hanger-making skills to the next level. You’ll learn new techniques that can be applied to anything you wish to create in the future.

Plus, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet other crafters, decompress and enjoy yourself, and tap into your creativity — something we all need! Even if you’re new to crafting and door hanger making, this retreat has something for you.

Attend Southern Adoornments Live For…

Workshops to Build Your Painting Skills

Treat yourself to two glorious days of workshops where you’ll learn new painting techniques and tricks that’ll boost your confidence and your crafts.

Most of our activities will be geared toward door hangers, but there will also be chances to paint ceramics, canvases, and more.

Crafter Connections & Group Workshops 

Make connections with others who are likely to become lifelong friends! Between mealtimes, exploring the city, and attending our craft workshops, this is where deep friendships are made!

Coming alone? You may feel nervous, but the minute you step foot inside, you’ll find that you’re not alone at all!

By the end of the day, you’ll be painting in your pajamas, laughing til your sides hurt, and feeling more connected than you ever thought possible. These people will only be “strangers” for a few hours. 

Plus, once you buy your ticket, you’ll be invited to join our private Facebook group, where you can meet attendees and alums in a no-pressure setting.

Creative Inspiration & Outlets

With a little practice and inspiration, ANYONE can paint. 

Maybe you haven’t picked up a paintbrush in years because you’ve been busy working a 9-5 job or raising kids. Maybe you haven’t felt creative lately, or maybe you’ve just been too scared to try something new.

No matter where you’re at, this event will help get you out of a slump, fill your heart with creativity, and ignite your inner artist.

Hey Y’all,

I’m Tamara!

And this is our FOURTH year doing Southern Adoornments Live. I can hardly believe it!

The first two years, we traveled to Nashville, then to Dallas, then to Destin. Regardless of where we’ve been, these events have one thing in common, each and every time.

Friendship forged over a love of crafting!

These events bring together women who have already become friends online through one of our memberships. They bond over a mutual love of painting door hangers, and years later, many of those attendees are still friends today!

Because it’s not just about crafts or painting. It’s the sisterhood, the bonding over breakfast, or laughing together in pajamas that make these events so special.

And it’s exactly why I started the annual Southern Adoornments Live event.

I wanted to bring together these amazing women who had brought so much joy into my own life. I wanted to help them connect with one another and create lifelong friendships.

And years later, this event is something that these ladies and I look forward to as a chance to reconnect.

If this type of connection and crafting fun is something you’ve been looking for, too, I hope you’ll join us!

– Tamara


Will I need to bring my own supplies?

Nope, no need to pack up your craft closet — we’ll provide all the supplies. It’s already included in the price of your ticket!

Do I have to stay at the hotel?

Of course not! But I highly recommend it — there are so many opportunities to hang out with other attendees!

What if I need a roommate?

This is a big reason why we have you join the private Facebook group as soon as you register. Chances are, there will be someone else who needs a roommate too!

What happens if I buy my ticket and suddenly can’t attend?

Emergencies come up and life happens! While we can’t refund you the price of your ticket, we can convert your ticket into a virtual ticket that includes a special kit full of door hanger supplies! You will still be able to view the session recordings and participate in some of the activities at home through our Facebook Group.

Make sure to choose refundable options for your travel and accommodations to avoid losing out on other costs! 

Alternatively, you have the option to transfer your ticket to another attendee.
