ROSES & ROSÉ PARTY
PURPOSE: To celebrate beauty and love each other deeply!
PLACE: Lexington, KY
What a way to kick off Joyful Gatherings! First of all... all you lovely ladies who joined us in Lexington, thank you! I miss your joy, smiles, and clinking glasses already. This gathering was in full partnership with The Deeply Co. A company with a mission to celebrate beauty and love each other deeply. I was so excited to help lift up their purpose and create this event with Jillian Edwards, their wonderful founder. She's also a singer and songwriter out of Nashville with the voice of an Angel! Literally, y'all so unbelievable! I've been lucky enough to have her perform at two events now and there's never a shortage of goose-bumps and tears. Her music touches your heart and infuses joy into your day. You can hear some of her music here :)
Each gathering is like Christmas morning for me. My heart almost can't handle the joy that fills it when I get to invite people into an experience. Our hope is that everyone who came felt lifted up and celebrated. Leaving with a little more love, joy, and fresh flowers than before!
Wondering what went down at the Deeply Gathering? Let me tell ya!
We welcomed our guests with what else...refreshing glasses of rosé AND some unreal house-made treats from Daily Offerings. I'm talking tarts, pastries, fresh fruits....amazing!
Jillian performed a private acoustic concert and just blew us all away. She sang in front of a colorful backdrop from our featured artist, Melody McMunn. You'll see some of her most recent work with ink hanging in these pics. Her art is constantly changing as colors, sunlight, and emotions inspire her creative process. I have one of her original abstract pieces in our living room and I'm always on edge for what's next! The Deeply Co. traditionally incorporates the beauty of floral design in their events so we invited Gretchen from Sunkissed Blooms in to teach a full floral bouquet workshop! So many little tips and tricks I never knew. Probably why my bouquets and arrangements always look frumpy.... but not anymore! We had so much fun mixing roses, greens, and beautiful blooms together to make our own creative masterpiece.
The bright space at Daily Offerings and the joyful souls that filled it made our celebration so beautiful and unique. Thank you, Leah Michelle, for capturing all the joy!
