Thank You Luncheon ~ featured on Style Me Pretty Living
Vanessa threw a surprise luncheon for some of her close friends in order to celebrate all their support and love in the making of Violet Vintage. Let’s face it, sometimes phenomenal women just need to be celebrated for being fabulous. Friends were invited to a party, without knowing the party was for them! Having the party on the large cozy porch of an 1800’s house felt like the perfect little space rather than taking it in the house. It’s the grown up version of a porch party. Instead of a bottle of soda sitting on the steps, glasses of champagne sat atop a farmhouse table with other pretties. The guests were welcomed up the brick path with a guitar serenade. It was so lovely that Style Me Pretty Living featured it on their blog!
The sewing machine was taken out and potted plants were placed in the remaining hole for the gift table!
The Watercolor Paper Suite was one of my favorite design elements. It certainly was me-filled with color. It also had a sentimental reasoning behind it-the colors were a symbol of the turbulent year I had and these women provided the rainbow. I teared up when I received them in the mail; the colors and design were more perfect in person. Jenny, from Turquoise Feathers, even chose matching peach colored envelopes equipped with the quote on the back to carry out the theme.
Another favorite was how the paper placemats with the doily cutout border displayed the quote under the clear plates to keep the appreciation at the forefront. The drink tags are actually paint chips from the hardware store.
