Loveliest of Afternoons: Jenny Packham, Tea and Great Company!

This past Friday we had the loveliest of afternoons... We hosted a tea party for our friends of the Merrick House committee featuring the spectacular Jenny Packham Bridal collection!  This event was actually a warm up to the series “Sundays on the Porch with George” in which we will be participating in February.   The series is a group of events throughout the fall and spring, that have themes, history, art, gardening and poetry. The purpose is to bring the community together and give awareness to the Merrick House Museum, gardens and its history.

We’re thrilled we were asked to participate in an event celebrating the marriage of George and Eunice Merrick, founders of Coral Gables.  We will be showcasing Jenny Packham’s 2014 bridal collection at the event, as well as enjoy tea, tea sandwiches, a wedding cake contest and a string quartet playing waltzes in the afternoon.   Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the date! But truly, our "warm up" this past Friday was a treat!  The lovely ladies of the committee were such great company!  We also had the pleasure of having Amelia Gibson, executive director for Jenny Packham - North and South America, join us and tell us all about Jenny's collection.  Here are some pics of the afternoon.  We were all falling in love with all the dresses, so hard to pick a favorite, do you have any faves?  Tell us about it, we always love to hear!
