Pop-Up Dinner Announcement!

 

This Saturday, we will be hosting our first pop-up dinner alongside Belle's Catering and Bond Brothers Beer Company, and we couldn't be more excited!

Belle’s Catering has paired up with The Bond Brothers Beer Company to present a unique, 5 course tasting menu that is sure to be both decadent and enlightening.  Guests will start the evening off mingling and exploring the historic Leslie-Alford-Mims House while sampling some of Belle’s favorite seasonally-inspired hors d’oeuvres. Dinner will be served farm-to-table style, surrounded by new friends.  You’ll hear directly from the cicerones themselves on their favorite beers and food pairings, which will be brought to life on your plate by Chef Bo Peterson.

Beautiful Motherhood Sessions with Live View Studios

Our dear friend Brent Dietrich, fine art film photographer and owner of Live View Studios, came to us this past spring with a precious concept he wished for us to partake in.  With Mother's Day around the corner, Brent had the idea of hosting mini portrait sessions for mothers and their children, focusing on capturing the bond of motherhood.  We were honored to jump on board! 

The boutique styled session packages would include hair and makeup services via Makeup by Ashley Mooney, styled rooms with furniture and props from Greenhouse Picker Sisters, floral decor from Serendipity Designs, access to jewelry provided by Gemma Jewels, a fine art boxed set of all session photos, and a digital download for printing and sharing.  Mothers would be pampered, adorned, and given beautiful pieces of fine artwork she could cherish forever! 

Slots began to sell fast, but luckily, Brent was able to reserve a session for Mims owner and mompreneur, Brooke, before the event had officially sold out.  Juggling three small businesses and three small children, family portraits had always fallen to the bottom of Brooke's to do list.  However, the mini sessions were a perfect time-saving opportunity for her to finally capture her family while pampering herself with lipstick and jewels.
