celebrate: the fruits of your labor

August 31, 2017  |  published by Kate Turner

Someone once said that your vibe attracts your tribe; I’m not sure what I did right in my lifetime to attract such a great tribe, but I’m sure glad that I did it! I don’t talk a lot on here about my other business, 23 City Blocks Catering, but I have to give them mad props today! A few weeks ago, the sneaky ladies of Kate & Company got together with the sneaky women and men of 23 City Blocks Catering and surprised me with the cutest shower of all time! And I was truly, honestly, actually surprised!

I thought I was just popping in to check on some new flooring that was just installed; I was very distracted because I was running late for our company staff meeting! Somehow, Miss O’Brien convinced me to come upstairs, upon which I saw the cutest table of all time! Still having no idea this was a party for me, I started quizzing her on what the event was and who was hosting it. What was probably a minute later, but felt like five, it dawned on me that they were throwing this beautiful event for me. It wasn’t until then that I looked to my left and saw all the smiling, beautiful faces of Kate & Company, Lumen Private Event Space, The Caramel Room, and 23 City Blocks Catering! These guys are so sneaky…should I be concerned?!

From the insanely delicious food, featuring all of my favorites, to the most darling theme I’ve ever seen – there was no element untouched. These guys themed the brunch, “The Fruits of Your Labor” and the darling details included baby milestones [as shown in fruit] on the back of each chair.  These gorgeous floral arrangements, a beautiful pop of color in the linen, and so many lovely touches made for a picture-perfect table. Check out the photos below for a peek into this sweet soirée!

Thank you to my sweet teams for such an incredible morning lovin’ on our little tater tot.
