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!
We were able to use my client’s heirloom china for the event which I was thrilled about; it added such a special touch. The silver and white china coordinated with the overall color scheme and looked very classic.
As a placeholder I took the picture of the rose from Susan’s funeral and printed a copy for each guest with their name on it. After the brunch, each lady was able to take her frame home as a reminder of her dear friend.
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!
