Lace and Grace Event + Give Away

Mark Williams, who is an extraordinary wedding planner based out of the The Manor at the Riverwoods, is throwing a party.  It isn't a Bridal Fair in the normal sense of the word.  No, in Riverwoods style, it will feel more like a community event, The Lace and Grace Event.  

Next Friday and Saturday, May 17th and 18th from 11-8, there will be an outdoor market featuring wedding vendors.  There will be classes for the bride to be, a fashion show, The Beehive Bazaar will be taking place, and I am going to set up shop for the weekend as well.  

This event fits well with what I have been hankering to do lately.  I have wanted to gather some of my favorite dresses and my favorite people and throw a party.  Mark has taken care of the event part of the deal.  This weekend I get to sit back, take a deep breath, and show some of you details on these gowns in which I spent way to much of my time.  I think it is a way to justify the work I have been doing for so many years.  

Mark invited me to be inside The Manor.  It is a beautiful space with huge windows for decorating and plenty of area to display gowns.  I have spent the last week working on a window display which will include a copper tree that I have been soldering obsessively in my dad's garage.  I like a good excuse to work with my dad on random projects.       

The dresses will be a collection of dresses from the last 4 or so years.  Here are some that I picked up yesterday.  My house is filling up with frothy craziness.  

To get the word out, I am offering a bit of a give away.  Five hand made silk roses to five (hopefully) lucky people.
