Sip. Shop. Launch! Posted on 27 Aug 07:43
We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the beginning of this fun, fashionable adventure than by throwing a party with some of our nearest and dearest.
Set on a Friday evening on Lake Winnemissett in our hometown of Deland, Florida, we went to every length to make sure we had good food, refreshing cocktails, and all of our clothing and accessories on display for all guests to enjoy.
We want to give a huge thank you to the countless family members and friends that dedicated their time to helping us plan, build, and execute a fabulous party!
Plans for the next Sip. Shop. party are already in the works...
The showroom floor, ready to be combed through!
Note to self: we need twice as many clipboards, and three times as many order forms!
Kayla's dad is a custom builder, and he whipped this baby up overnight using an old fence and some antique hinges! Ashley's dad and brother engineered the lighting!
Our delicious spread of tailgate-themed appetizers, catered by local chef and friend Taylor Bass.
Enjoying the buzz of guests arriving to sip & shop!
