A Soirée Amongst The Dunes



The timing and weather could not have been better - with my departure looming, one last hurrah was in order and the dunes were the perfect scene setter. With the opportunity to host my own Caldrea Garden Party - I flew into HIGH MRS action and gathered up my posse. Using the newest fragrance from aromatherapeutic homekeeping brand Caldrea as my inspiration - Pear Blossom Agave -  I proceeded as any MRS would and entertained my wild imagination. What came forth was an explosion of magical enchantment - from the grand to the tiniest detail, the event was delightfully elaborate. After oodles of prep, crafting + hauling, staging, styling + propping - we descended to the dunes and got the party hopping! Fresh Pear Margaritas were flowing - feted with glittering swizzles that had the cocktails glowing. Paired with grilled pear + gorgonzola kabobs for noshing - everyone was left ‘Oh my GOSH-ing’!!


As the sun set, the merriment had swung into full motion - the balloons bobbed high, the pears began to glow, my did we set such a magical commotion! The giggles, good times, and the memories made - were the kind that’ll stay fresh in my mind for at least a decade. The late nights crafting, plotting, planning and scheming - were all the while worth the memories we all took away from that most marvelous evening.

Thank you to Caldrea for entrusting me with this project - and to all of those of you who supported me and made it so heartfelt. Paper Fox, your balloons crowned the evening - and Brogen Jessup, you captured my vision with these images that have so much meaning.

I bow to you all, each and every one of you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me with the ultimate rendezvous.

Endless Kisses,
