"Girly Chic" Supper Club
When long time friend and fabulous party hostess, Carrie approached us about doing a Supper Club for a small group of girlfriends, we were thrilled. Carrie had designed an invitation, handed it over and said, "Go!" We drew our inspiration from the color palette- Fuscia, orange, black and white and then threw in "girly" but kept it simple for our modern-minded hostess.
Guests were greeted at the door with a comfy pair of flip flops to slip into...
The weather cooperated perfectly and simple market lights, pink gelled washes for the walls and candles created a warm and inviting ambiance.
White couches, pillows in pink and orange and accessories in sparkling black really said "Girly", but it wasn't over the top...so, really "Girly Chic" (our hostess' "theme" idea) is probably the right description.
We created simple arrangements of roses with an assymetrical burst of cymbidium orchids to keep the look clean and unique.
This ladies Supper Club has been a yearly tradition for Carrie and some of her friends, and each year a wine tasting element is incorporated into the evening. This year, we designed simple wine charms, wine bottle numbers (so the wines could be voted on later), Wine pairing tags (for those that brought a food and wine pairing), and ballots to vote with at the end of the night.
A beautiful evening was had by all. We were thrilled with the response from all of the guests...and heard things like, "This doesn't even look like your backyard", which means the transformation was a success!
Cheers to the ladies of the 3rd annual Supper Club, and thanks to Carrie for always giving us such great inspiration to run with!!
