Well, as close to it as I will get in the near future. Moulin Rouge!! Kim Caldwell's incredible art event was a HUGE success. So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, relax and enjoy. I have SO many pictures from the event but I will share just a few....well, maybe more than just a few!
The event was held at the adorable Hotel Belamar in Manhattan Beach, California.
Just prior to vendor night, Joy Campbell and I hosted a welcome cocktail party. We greeted all the Can Can girls with delectable French Martinis. Vendor night was the night we were to dress up in our finest Can Can girl outfits, and what a gorgeous group of girls!
After the cocktail party, it was on to Vendor Night. Wow...the creativity that was available for purchase that night was unbelievable. Well, I did not take any photos of vendor night...too busy shopping AND Kim had brought in LA Photo Party to take fun pics of all of us. Let me share some of my favorite shots from the night....
The above picture is all of the teachers for the weekend. Shea Fragoso (Gilded Life), Jenny & Aaron (Everyday is a Holiday), Kerry Lynn Yeary and Colleen Moody, along with our beautiful Hostess, Kim Caldwell.
Here is my ALL TIME FAVORITE picture......(I'm NOT telling who is in the center!) hee hee! (please don't Kill me for putting this picture up, but it cracks me up everytime!!) After all, it IS Moulin Rouge!!!!
So, as you can see, we had a BLAST that night! It was off to bed to rest up for the next two days of classes. Oh, before I forget, leave it to Kim to think of everything...before we retired to our rooms for the evening, she sent us away with yummy meringue cookies packaged in the most adorable jars.
The next morning, we entered the ballroom and found it transformed into Moulin....ooh la la!!!
Here are photos of my fantastic tablemates for the weekend...
So, this is the end of post #1. Stay tuned for post #2, which will include the classes, swaps and our bus tour.........until then, Merci.
