Northern Virginia Event Planner | End of Summer Girl’s Evening Party

I know, I know. Everybody is getting excited about their pumpkin spice lattes and I’m still over here trying to enjoy the last few weeks of summer…

My client wanted to host an “end of summer” / “back to school” celebration for her girlfriends, many of whom have kiddo’s returning to school this week. As a final hurrah to Summer 2016, we put together this party. The vibe we were going for was relaxed, feminine, and summery. A big thanks to Camille Catherine Photography for capturing the details!

My client wanted to host the event at her home, which was perfect, because she has a BEAUTIFUL home and a stunning pool area! The space was a perfect setting for a summer themed party. We floated giant oversized balloons in the pool, which looked really neat.

She already had a perfect bar space near the pool, so we just added a few things here and there. Like this amazing custom”cheers” sign by 43 Layers! The signature cocktail, a cucumber lemon chiller crafted by Well Dunn Catering, was the perfect summery touch.

I am pretty obsessed with these brand new low tables from Paisley & Jade! They also provided these fabulous vintage rugs and assorted pillows for the guests to sit on right on the pool deck!

And the Tuscany linens from La Tavola always add something! Their lux texture and color is prefect!

The chargers, china, flatware, glassware, and other rentals came from Party Rental Ltd. and were lovely!

We also did some fun custom signage to help guests find their way around. And Well Dunn Catering knocked it out of the park with the food!
