Happy One Year Vivid Hue, Our Celebration Recap

This summer we celebrated our one year Vivid Hue Home anniversary.  We invited our best clients to join us for an evening of  hors d'oeuvres, shopping and wine.  It was our way to show thanks for all of the support everyone has given us since opening our brick and mortar doors just a little over a year ago.

This was a big milestone for us and Acorn Talk Photography was on hand to capture the essence of the evening.  While we are professionals, we also know how to be silly and celebratory when the occasion beckons.   (Oh who am I kidding, we are always silly).   I love the photo on the left where Annie seems to be communicating to me with her eyes saying "Why in the world am I standing up here posing with a Mardi Gras feathered mask?"

The kids were in attendance for the first portion of the evening before I had a sitter whisk them away.

Anyone that follows my instagram knows that my kids are always dressed in athletic gear.  Jack has a strict self-induced "NO COLLARED SHIRT" policy.  Smidge is only rarely caught in a dress.   Needless to say, this photo is one for the photo album because it captures the quick second where they were getting along and complying with the photo session.  (Not pictured:  balloons popping and Jack pulling out his tattered hockey USA tee shirt).

They even made it for awhile longer so that we could snap a rare family photo together.

It's amazing how many of my friends have super fab talents.  A friend from high school, Jill Fahey, owns Sugar, LLC and designs custom cakes and sugar cookies that are beyond breath-taking.  I had her create these cookies from the Vivid Hue Home logo for the celebration.  (Yes, she hand painted every bit of the detail from our logo...stunning!)

And Lindsey used to operate her own pastry catering business in her previous life.  She made these fabulous petite cupcakes with pastel buttercream frosting.  Yummy!

All guests appeared to have a great time, which is exactly what we hoped for.

We have had an incredible kick start for Vivid Hue Home during our first year in business.  We have plenty of plans to grow Vivid Hue over the next year and more.  We are truly grateful and thankful for the wonderful support we've received by our local community and beyond (yes, fellow friends on Instagram, Facebook and the website....you, too, have attributed to our steady growth).  Thank you!

Oh Heather -- I have been wondering how things were going ith the store so I'm so glad you posted this update. I've missed your blogs, although I understand you must be too busy to breathe. I am soooo happy for you and sooo glad things are working out for you.

Continued success -- if I'm ever in the neighborhood, I definitely plan to stop by and say hello.
