Scott County Women’s Entrepreneurs Tea Party and Fashion Show
Bleubird Studio + Suites and Scott County Entrepreneurs hosted the event of the season! It was all the town could talk about for days!
What started out as a dreary, rainy day seemingly ready to spoil our fun, turned into a bright, sunny day perfect for an outdoor garden party. Guests made their arrivals dressed in true Kentucky fashion with gorgeous brightly colored dresses and fun facinators atop their heads.
Upon entering the big event tent, guests saw the most gorgeous table settings, each with their own vintage tea set and coordinating flower arrangement. Guests were provided with a booklet filled with all the female entrepreneur sponsors of the event and information about the non-profit organizations the event supported.
This event was not just a fun way to get together, but a fundraiser for the Scott County Women Entrepreneurs, Scott County Humane Society foster efforts, and the Chrysalis House of Lexington. Support for local women entrepreneurs surrounded the entire event.
Once all the guests had taken their seats, they were promptly served a variety of teas. Trays full of the tastiest snacks from local cooks and bakers were placed on each table. Jane, the owner of the Bleubird, was a perfect host, buzzing around to make sure everyone had everything they could possibly need and even serving them herself.
Mayor Burney Jenkins made an opening speech, honoring female entrepreneurs and the wonderful women of Scott County. Jane said a quick thank you, and then they began the fashion show.
Local shops donated outfits and fascinators for all the models. There were even a few doggie models from the Scott County Humane Society who walked the runway. Models showed off their outfits and hats as Polly Singer described what they were wearing and where we could find them. It was truly fun entertainment.
Local businesses also donated items for a raffle giveaway, which helped raise funds for the foster efforts of the humane society. Guests would cheer in celebration when they won some truly phenomenal prizes.
Guests were invited into the Bleubird to view John Hockensmith’s exhibit featuring monarch butterflies. A portion of all print purchases went toward the Chyrsalis House of Lexington. On the front porch of the Bleubird, a few vendors set up tables, and a digital photo booth was available for guests to use.
The event turned out perfectly with everyone having a spectacular time.
