I am so excited to share images from our fall, rustic inspired vendor appreciation event. I am so very blessed to work with some amazing creative partners and I wanted to truly make them feel loved on by us. For me, the way I show love is through food & gifts. I love feeding people, breaking bread together, enjoying wine and conversation. And who doesn’t love a happy?!

My inspiration for this started with my love of all things plaid, checked, tartan patterned. I also thought there’s no better time for a plaid party than fall! I envisioned everyone snuggled up with a plaid wrap, chatting, dancing, eating, and having fun–that is exactly what happened! Jacki with Salt + Paperie did a great job capturing exactly what I was looking for to introduce the theme to guests when they received their invitations. Since we were hosting at the studio, we turned our parking lot into a beautiful rustic garden lounge and seated area. Each guest was greeted at their seat with a beautiful wrap from A stylish design, and a card done in beautiful calligraphy by Julie with Piper Vine. Happy Catering provided the amazing food, Onsite Productions provided our lighting, sound and music, CeCe Designs blew me away with her florals, and rentals, Special events Company provided our tables, chairs, and heaters (because of course the day I was hosting a party outside it was one of the coldest days in November), and Alex & Sara Luca of AL Weddings captured the night! It was so great to be surrounded by people I love and appreciate and honor them in a really special way!
