"The Power of the Purse" fundraising dinner at the Portland Art Museum on March 8th was a benefit for GirlsInc. The mission of this incredible organization is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold.
Cindy Thompson Event Productions explains what the fundraising dinner is about: "The Power of the Purse is not your standard fundraising dinner. In the months prior the event, Portland's most notable leaders, artists, entrepreneurs and philanthropists worked with local purse designers creating the handbag of their dreams.
Each piece was a unique work of art that was auctioned off during a live fashion show showcasing the fabulous handbags, the creative individuals who inspired their design, and the bright stars of the evening-Girls Inc. girls The Power of the Purse auction and dinner raises money to support Girls Inc., Portland's local non-profit that supports girls in need to recognize their potential, honor their resiliency, and believe in themselves."
Cindy asked if I could donate flower purses for the bistro tables; it was my pleasure to be able to contribute to this event.
A huge thank you to Joni Shimabukuro for the pictures!
Fragrant and delicate, sweetpeas look stunning by themselves or mixed with other flowers. A favorite!
It was such a pleasure to participate in a photo shoot last month. As the set-up was under a lone oak tree, it seemed that a bird’s nest theme would be a fun choice.
Deyla Huss Photography came up with the photo shoot concept and she invited fabulous vendors to participate:
Decor: Becky Simpson with No Ordinary Affair
Cake:Renae Heineck with Custom Cakes
Invitations: Angelina Koeppen with Water Lily Invitations
Make up: Jennifer Rand with Face Body Beauty
Thank you so much Deyla for the great pictures!
It is fun to decorate the rim and handle of the basket so it ‘matches’ the flower crown. Time consuming, but well worth it!
Foxtail lilies are amongst the most stunning of all bulbous plants. The spirelike flowering stems can be 4-9′ tall. Hundreds of bell-shaped white, pink or yellow blossoms are massed closely in graceful, pointed spikes. They bloom in late spring and are magnificent in the garden. Perfect, long lasting flowers for dramatic arrangements!
Fun and different!
Flower purses make wonderful hostess gifts and are perfect centerpieces for smaller tables.
Or would you like a unique bride’s bouquet or bridesmaid’s bouquet? As always, the possibilities are endless!
