Earlier this month, we took a field trip for our monthly #SCMEMBERMEETUP and gathered at the adorable Margerum Wine Co. Reserve Room to wine down with what else…. wine! Margaret Joan Florals created the most drool-worthy fall floral arrangement and we did what us event industry folk do best >> eat, drink, and mingle! Thank you Anna Delores Photography for these stunning captures and THANK YOU Margerum for the delicious vino and a truly lovely fall afternoon…
We love getting our fabulous SOIREE | CENTER Members together each month to gather, learn, and network with one another for a #SCMemberMeetup. A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of learning how to make our very own kombucha with the guidance of caterer-extraordinaire, Feast & Fest. While we all “nerded” out and learned the ins and outs of handling our scoby [which we are still convinced looks like something from a sci-fi film], it was a super fun day sipping fresh fruit + fizzy kombucha and concocting our very own batches of the coveted elixir to continue making at home. Here are some of our favorite highlights with stunning photos from Mollie Crutcher Photography and an awesome video from B Studios.

Shortly after our “Painting Party” with Sophia Loves Letters, we decided to host an intimate Modern Calligraphy Workshop here at the center to learn yet another craft from the lovely Sophia. Like many lettering enthusiasts, we are avid admirers of several calligraphers on Instagram and yet, had surprisingly never taken a formal class [our Brush Lettering Workshop last year was the closest we’d gotten]. That being said, it was very exciting/slightly intimidating to learn from one of our talented members. Of course, Sophia was extremely patient with our small group of beginners and gave one-on-one help as we sipped mango-lemonade bubbly and snacked on decadent cinnamon rolls. It was truly a WONDERFUL Sunday gathering and we can’t thank Miki & Sonja Photography enough for capturing some of the fun!
Each month, we invite all of our fabulous SOIREE | CENTER Members to get together and mingle, learn, and network with one another for a #SCMemberMeetup. Last month, we had the pleasure to learn how to paint floral watercolors with the lovely Sophia Loves Letters and it was an absolute blast! Here are some of our favorite highlights from the “painting party” with stunning photos from Jillian Rose Photo.
If you’d like to attend a fun class like this, you’re IN LUCK because Sophia is teaching a beginner calligraphy class this Sunday, June 11th. You can sign up HERE!
If you don’t know Andrew Evans of Party Pleasers…you are missing out! This incredibly talented birthday boy had the most fun idea for his big 3-0. Being that it was a “new year” for him, that’s the theme he chose for his celebration and we were lucky enough to be the location for the festivities! With tons of gold and GLAMOUR, the design elements in the intimate dinner made us giddy with glee. Specialty rentals were [obviously] from Party Pleasers and beautiful Luxe Linens added even more drama. A delicious dinner was served by Martino’s Catering and the entire evening was simply magical. Thank you Anna Delores Photography for making our space look good and to Andrew for throwing one heck of a SOIREE for yourself!
