(Something exciting before I launch into today’s post – APOL is on Bloglovin!)
I said it on Instagram, and I’ll say it again – I wish I could have invited every single one of you to our Color Confidence brunch with Kendra Scott at Kenton’s in New Orleans. It came together to be one of the most beautiful (and delicious) New Orleans brunch events that I’ve ever attended! I’m literally looking through these photos just in awe of how perfect everything turned out. And although the invite list wasn’t compltely up to us, Jenn and I were able to extend 4 invitations to brunch through a giveaway on Instagram. It was a really fun way to get to know some of you guys, so hopefully, we will have another opportunity to do something like that again in the future!
The others in attendance were thirty influencers, trendsetters, entrepreneurs, movers and shakers all together in the same room coming together to network and give back to charity – and look at beautiful jewelry of course! Each person in attendance was given a notecard to write down their favorite local philanthropy, and at the end of the brunch, one card and organization was blindly chosen to receive a $500 donation from Kendra Scott! (And not only that, Kendra Scott’s New Orleans location kept the cards for future philanthropic efforts in the city.)
We chose Kenton’s as the restaurant for brunch not only because the food is so yummy, but also because it just happens to be next door to the Kendra Scott store! So as a little surprise to top off such a fun day, we had everyone walk over to the store to pick out something for themselves to take home! You’ll also notice that each place setting had a cuff as a napkin ring and right next to their plate was a yellow box that held the matching necklace. 🙂
