I want to share a recap about a Summer Supper I held at my studio back in June with a group of fantastically talented creatives. A few weeks ago, Southern Living featured the event on their blog and I wanted to share some more of my favorite photos from the event.
I am so proud to highlight Greenville in this way and show of a handful of the creative mind that make this city so interesting and vibrant. I also hope you enjoy Kimberly Gibson's amazing photos: they truly were the icing on the cake for a memorable summer night!
The wildly talented Kate Asire created the floral arrangements for the evening. They breathed such life and beauty into the studio and really rounded out the yellow and green design scheme.
Amanda Louise Campbell styled the event using her favorite color, chartreuse, as the base for the color scheme. It paired beautifully with our blue and white serving ware and the yellow notes from the flower arrangements.
Kim snapped a quick shot of me with my husband George. I don't talk about him often enough: he is my best friend, number one supporter, and incredibly business savvy. I literally would have no business today if it were not for his help: he is my lawyer, tech guru, business coach, idea man, and is wildly creative in his own right. I could not be more grateful to have found him.
One of my paintings peeking out from the background: I have always felt that interiors breathe life into art and this event highlighted my work in a tasteful, understated way.
Greenbrier Farms prepared the food for the evening and it was absolutely delicious. Shown below is their Summer Solstice Salad which was my favorite course from the evening: when you present me with shaved organic veggies and a new version of a deviled egg, my taste buds celebrate.
Stephanie from Olive and Tate concocted this fabulous Lemonade Sangria with Blueberry Lemon Popsicles Cocktail that the crowd enjoyed towards the start of the night. It was charming and nostalgic: the perfect way to get the party going.
Jennifer Glover of Carolina Girl Cooks treated the group to her Tea Cookies: she paired her Orange Cardamom flavor with cheeses from Greenbrier farms for the appetizer course, and wrapped up the night by serving everyone samples of each cookie as mini cheesecakes.
My cute little artist friend, C. Brooke Ring, live painted at the event. I have known Brooke for several years and its been such a joy to work with her at Vino and van Gogh and see her business take off! She's a fabulous artist and brings happiness to all those that own her work.
Thank you again, Southern Living, for featuring the event on your blog.
And Thank you to the talented crew who helped pull off the event to make it so special and stunning!
