Iowa Friendship Brunch

I’m finally getting around to sharing the pictures of the friendship brunch I mentioned in my last post.  To recap; my client Betty’s friend Susan passed away unexpectedly this past summer.  Her birthday was in November so Betty wanted to bring together a group of Susan’s closest friends to celebrate her memory.  The three requirements for the brunch were:

1)  Use the color yellow and incorporate yellow roses

2)  Make the decor fit in with the Christmas decor already in the house

3)  Add a bit of sparkle

I shared the inspiration board in my last post and here are pictures from the actual event!

It was a pleasure working with Betty and I had the added delight of meeting all the ladies who attended the brunch when Betty invited me to join them just before the brunch ended.  I can see why Susan had them all as friends, they were such a lively and fun group!
