Three lovely, successful and savvy business women hosted a summer soiree recently to celebrate, well, pleasantly enough - just summer! At a fantastic evening at a private home, friends were asked to wear all white (at the suggestion of one of the ladies) which only enhanced the beautiful natural view.
Being greeted with a floral crown bestowed on your head (created by one of the ladies), and the choice of Stella Artois
beer or wines from Chloe
or Volvic water, along with other sponsors, set the tone for making each guest feel welcomed and special.
Comfortable couches, pillows and chairs (some provided by Mecox) and styled by another of the ladies, hinted that perhaps we should all endeavor to make ourselves feel this special in our own homes!
Let's hear it for the guys too! Nick Fall, Coleman Brown, Conor Stansky and Brett Shapiro enjoy the evening. (Photo: Eileen Casey)
So, who are these ladies who created such a lovely environment with apparent ease?
