GALENTINE'S DAY PARTY: ALL IN THE DETAILS

Our Galentine's Day party was incredible thanks to the creative forces of Lux Events, the stunning atmosphere of Green Ark and the many talented vendors who collaborated with us.  Knowing what Molly and her team at Lux Events had planned, I had to pack my camera to capture my favourite bits of the party.  Every turn brought breathtaking details.  From the lush floral table runner by Anthology Home Collection to the intricate details of the delicious Fab Frosting cookies, we were awe.  The party was more beautiful than we had imagined due to our amazing local vendors.  Take a scroll through my favourite party details.

The staff of Lux Events who were the masterminds behind our Galentine's party.  They dreamed up EVERYTHING from concept to creation.  We were in awe from the first inspo photos they shared to the finished product when we arrived.

The table runner by Anthology Home Collection was vivid, lush and whimsical.  We were able to put it to use the next day too!  Watch for a flower crown tutorial coming soon to OCM.

Much of our outfits were from Tonic and Farminista.  I love how Susan styled her jumpsuit with a statement necklace and fur.
