You may have heard by now, particularly if you read this post, this post, this post, or this post that we hosted a little party in Birmingham last week. We invited five Birmingham-area based design bloggers, and a few other friends, over to my house for a Garden Party. The folks from Birmingham Home & Garden were there photographing the event and it will be featured in an upcoming issue. As a result we can’t spoil the surprise of seeing everything we did to transform my “yard” into a “garden” for the evening, but we will share a few behind the scenes peeks at things.
It’s just beginning to feel like fall here in Birmingham, so summer flowers like white hydrangea or roses just didn’t feel right for this event. Paige and I visited Davis Wholesale and selected a variety of aubergine flowers which we placed both inside the house and on tables set around the garden.
Paige and I had a great time catching up with old friends and getting to meet new ones during the Garden Party. It was so fun to get to announce our new Mountain Brook store (which is literally a block away from my house!) at the party. We will be sure to keep you posted on when the Birmingham Home & Garden feature will be out in print. The day before the party we also received the very exciting news that my house will be soon be photographed for a feature in a national magazine. We’ll tell you more about that soon too.
