We have had the vision of a greenhouse fashion show in mind for years, and once last years Favourite Things show was behind us, and we decided to take a year off from that event, we knew it was the perfect opportunity to put this plan into action! The team at Blue Grass Garden Centres was more than happy to take on the challenge - not that this was terribly hard to pull off, but there were a lot of moving parts to pull together, such as food and a lot of rental’s, a liquor license, liquor and bartender, not to mention the worry of the weather! In the vision, Solstice was bright and sunny and beautiful! In reality, it turned out chilly and damp. There was much that we had to be flexible planning, and until we saw the line up at the door, we really weren’t sure WHAT was going to happen!
Everything came together perfectly, despite our concerns. The greenhouse was a little chilly, but it was bright and beautiful nonetheless. Heidi from Blue Grass pulled together some phenomenal arrangements - HELLO BANANA TREES! - Special Event Rentals hooked us up with the perfect decor from the chairs to the cocktail tables, and Kelly and Kurt from local rock band The Wait gave us the perfect ambiance music! Waiting in line for the bar was a lot more fun singing along to some of our favourite cover songs, from Jan Arden to Alanis Morissette to Foo Fighters.
Big thanks to Bev from Great Strides and Sondra from Luksus for joining us on the runway - the models and fashions were FABULOUS! Enormous thanks once again to our models who always represent our boutique with class and sass - we love you girls so much! Thank you Meg Tucker for being the perfect host to our night, and Deanna Hall for capturing it all on camera for us!! We are so grateful for you all.
Take a look through the pictures, and make sure you mark your calendars for next year - because it’s definitely going to happen again!
Thank You to these terrific local business for supporting our event!!
