Event Spotlight: Babes Brunch
Last December Flora was thrilled to host Mae&Co Creative’s Babes Brunch, a “non-profit event held for all creative women who crave a little time solely to themselves.” This was the group’s first networking event held outside of the Pacific Northwest, so we knew we had to make this evening in San Diego extra spectacular.
Babes Brunch: Not Your Typical Networking Event
For this celebration, Flora was thoughtfully designed and decorated to make each guest feel pampered and appreciated. Upon arrival each of the women were welcomed into an airy, botanical wonderland with rich orange and pink accents and a breathtaking ceiling installation created from painted, dried flowers.
Throughout the evening, this creative group sipped on Marionberry Mules and Pear Collins cocktails by Wild Roots Spirits, got crafty at the herbal tea blending station by Herb + Nectar and became the epitome of hair goals as local stylist Styled By Jordan worked her magic at the braiding station.
The incredible ‘’me time’’ kept coming as these babes sat down to a big dinner party with forty of their new best friends. San Diego’s Harvest Kitchen served up four courses of pure delight with a brunch twist – grilled watermelon, arugula salad, shrimp and grits, and savory bread pudding.
The Babes Brunch is so much more than an elegant party, it’s a gathering for women to feel empowered, express ideas, share feelings, celebrate each other, and to have fun. It was an amazing experience for everyone to come together to mix, mingle, laugh, and to have a moment away from their to-do lists and busy daily routines. Babes Brunch hosts networking and community bonding events throughout the year, so keep an eye out for their future celebrations.
We are so happy to have been part of this wonderful evening. If you’re looking for a beautiful space to host your next social gathering, contact us to schedule a tour. Our team can’t wait to help you plan your next event.
