~ a wine gathering

I had a little get-together at my house last week for a small group of dynamic ladies, in hopes of sparking new interest and spreading the word about the Lauritzen Gardens Antique Show here in Omaha. I am chairing the event for its 10th anniversary, September 2013, with my friend Kyle. (aka flower woman extraordinaire)
Once everyone was out the door, and a collection of dirty glasses and napkins was all that remained, I remembered to take photos.. 
So I present you with the flowers... still stunning and beautiful! Kyle, my co-chair, is also a florist. She owns Habitat in the Old Market in downtown Omaha. She is super amazing at everything she does. 


Here's what I tell Kyle: Orange, peach and yellow please.
Here's what I get: Total and complete gorgeousness.









I did some sprucing with a few new ivys and kalanche plants also...




The evening seems to have been a success. If we prompted new excitement about the show, it was worthwhile. I believe I can say with certainty, mission accomplished.


Thank you Kyle!

These are truly beautiful! I love seeing someone else use their McKenzie-Childs pieces for arrangements! It's my favorite thing to use when I'm entertaining as well!

Gorgeous flowers and setting! And congratulations for taking on the chairmanship of the gardens' antiques show. Our art museum here will host its 24th antiques show this October, and it is probably my favorite event in town. Last year Suzanne Kastler was our guest along with Andrew Wyeth's granddaughter, Victoria. I wish you lots of success!

Gorgeous! What a great friend to have. Does Kyle happen to have a sister or any relative who lives in Dallas? I need a friend like that!
