On Saturday, Peachy Keen was transformed into a whimsical Wonderland for our Spring Fashion Show. We had a great turnout and really enjoyed showing everyone our trendy spring outfits. From the wonderful raffle prizes to the fabulous tea we hope everyone had as much fun as we did!
In order to transform the store into Wonderland, many things had to go on behind the scenes. So where did we start? VISUALS of course!! All of our peaches here helped research and make whimsical decorations and signs to create the crazy and odd atmosphere we were going for. Many ideas were gathered from none other than... Pinterest!
Using our themed colors of dark purple, lime green, peachy keen red, and an array of blues, we created a peculiar "Welcome to Wonderland" window display, handwritten signs quoting lines from Alice in Wonderland, paper tea cups, flamingos, hearts, playing cards strung together, and a Mad Hatter hat. And the best part... bushels of handmade paper flowers leading models "down the rabbit hole."
As always, the afternoon started off with a cocktail hour featuring cucumber and cream cheese tea sandwiches and excellent spiked tea from Tin Roof Teas. We proceeded to raffle off amazing prizes, such as a bottle of wine from Triangle Wine Company & a gift card to Hibernian Pub from WRAL Out & About!
Finally, we cranked the music up and enjoyed watching everything from beautiful poppy and mint green colors to high-low silhouettes to transparent glamor come down the runway. How could you not LOVE that navy high-low skirt paired with the mint greet blouse? Once again, as a Peachy Keen tradition, we ended the show with flirty cocktail dresses, perfect for a gorgeous spring night out.
Guests looked like they enjoying every second, as immediately following the show many quickly grabbed their favorite pieces and headed for the fitting room. Others mingled around while enjoying a glass of bubbly and mini cupcakes, which were screaming, "Eat Me" and "Drink Me". We love hearing feedback from our shows, one woman told us she saved the invitation just because she wanted to keep reading it over and over, "It kept me wanting more" she said.
After months of planning and preparation, we were thrilled to see such an excited crowd! Thanks to everyone who could make it out and especially to our amazing sponsors!!
