After having children I met a few fellow moms through preschool and clients of Little Miss Party Planner, whom I bonded with immediately. Every one of them, is running their own business.
As always, I designed and ordered invitations for Colette to mail to the list of guests from Minted. They have the best selection of invites especially when you’re looking for something sophisticated and classy.
I connected most with women who were inspiring and motivating to me and through each of them I met so many more fabulous women.
It’s remarkable how much talent there is out there and the best part is sharing it with each other.
Just before the summer, my dear friend, Colette Lettieri who has a beautiful home in Westhampton and asked me if I’d like to join her in hosting a party for a group of fabulous women. Of course I said, YES!
It was a perfect day for rosé and brunch by the pool. I styled the backyard with balloon garlands and florals centering the barcart and creating a stage for photos.
We worked with Sophie from Patio Artistry for floral arrangements in my favorite Dwell vases that I placed around the backyard.
Colette is friends with this wonderful chef, Carol Galanty who came in to make a delicious spread of brunch for the ladies. Carol also gave the guests a cooking demo making summer rolls with her beautiful daughter. The recipe was super easy to mimic at home so everyone went home with new information that they could use after the party.
Another friend of Colette’s, Christie Hoyt, is a personal fitness trainer and sommelier! Christie worked with Carol to set a Belini bar with an assortment of fresh squeezed juices. Christie also filled the bar cart with tons of rosé which was so nice to sip on that beautiful day.
You know I have a deep obsession with the balloon garlands from One Stylish Party so when I saw the columns on the deck in Colette’s backyard I just to doll them up with tons of balloons! I styled in fresh florals all through the balloons and added some stems into the bar cart for an unexpected look.
There were so many wonderful woman to chat with at the party and I walked away with tons of new contacts, an awesome goodie bag and a few new friends. Was a pretty perfect party with Women Who Inspire.
