Tonight, Melissa and I headed East to the Clise Mansion in Redmond to attend the Parasol Party put together by Courtney Russell of Half Past Lavish Events.
The Clise Mansion is tucked away in Marymoore Park, perfectly hidden by lush, bright kelly green trees. The grounds are very well manicured which only enhanced the parties setting. I can see why people get married there!
When we walked in, we were greated by several vendors selling jewelry, candles, adorable aprons, Lush soaps, handbags, cupcake decor and more. There was a table setup with candy and cupcakes - a delicious candy bar, anyone with a sweet tooth's mecca. (Um, yeah, that would be me!)
We headed outside to the bar and tried a pink champagne cocktail and loved EVERY second of it! Mingling ensued and pictures were taken... Women were getting manicures by Julep, foot rubs, massages and more. There were a lot of great things to do!
At around 8:30pm an announcement was made by Courtney for us all to head outside for the show. We all meandered to the back yard to grab our spots for the fashion show. After she gave away all of the door prizes (which I totally did not sign up for - whoops!) the fashion show began.
The first 3 models came out to a lovely French song in very adorable girly aprons made by Party Girl Aprons and the girls were carrying cupcakes decorated by Bella Cupcake Couture. It was hard not to buy one of those aprons at the end of the night - they really are cool!
Next, the Marie Antoinette inspired fashion show began - the girls were wearing clothing from Deco Modiste and carrying parasols by Bella Umbrella. The clothing was really fun and colorful!
It was a very enjoyable show and I'm glad I was able to attend. Thank you Courtney!
