An Evening In Orange

If you've tried to call us and haven't gotten an answer; if you've tried to book an appointment with us only to find there are few available time slots, if any; if you've stopped by the studio and it's been an absolute chaos of flowers, buckets, designers, and heady fragrances in the last week, blame it on the magnificent event we were a part of this past Saturday on January 16.

Lisa was honored when, several months ago, the Chair of the event, Christy Phillips, came and asked us to jump aboard... for An Evening in Orange. The 3rd annual auction/event raised proceeds for the region's first dedicated heart hospital at the University of Tennessee Medical Center and was definitely a night to remember. Months ago, Lisa began planning for a transformation to take place at Cherokee Country Club, where An Evening In Orange was held. Our job, along with All Occasions Party Rentals and the team at Bandit Lites, was to take every room in the club from elegant and plush to amazing and breath-taking. We like to think we achieved our goal! Take a look at some of our creations.

The evening definitely presented a challenge for our team (as we had our hand in almost every room!), but as always, they took it in stride and every leaf was in place by the time the first guests stepped through the door.

We feel so grateful to have taken part in not only an enchanted evening, but one that supported a very worthy cause. We want to send our appreciation out to everyone who participated in An Evening In Orange, including those who helped our designs shine with the most amazing linens, lights, and decor. We're looking forward to next year!
