Wine and Cheese Soiree // Small Business Collaboration

What can I say? We had a BLAST hosting this pairing with some of our favorite small businesses in Fort Worth. It had everything for the perfect girls night; wine, so much cheese, gorgeous jewelry from Kennamer Alexandra, yummy desserts from Stir Crazy Baked Goods and fabulous clothes from Beehive Fort Worth. 

First, a bit about Kennamer Alexandra. This girl does it all. She's a fantastic photographer (she took pictures of all the yummy treats!), an incredible designer and artist, oh, and she makes awesome jewelry as well. You can visit her etsy shop here to find some perfect last minute stocking stuffers! 

Her line features lots of brass, silk tassels, and gorgeous beads. You can find pretty much anything for anyone on your list, while shopping small and supporting small businesses. Giving a unique, handmade gift that is affordable always means a lot! Her store features everything from bracelets, to earrings, to necklaces of all different kinds and lengths.

Stir Crazy Baked Goods, was kind enough to provide some delicious treats for our guests to try as well! They provided their to-die-for cheese rolls, and my personal favorite, mini-pies. Honestly, I love these things because they're big enough to satisfy any craving, but then you don't have the guilt of eating an entire pie alone. Because I would. They're THAT good. If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting one of their two locations (Magnolia or Dagget) you need to drop what you're doing and GO RIGHT NOW. No joke - and if the owner Robbie happens to be there, make sure to tell her hello and say thank you for creating heaven on earth. She is one of the friendliest and brightest people we've met, and we're so excited to feature her story on our blog this coming January!

Our next Preferred Partner, Beehive Boutique Fort Worth, also provided us with some amazing attire for the event! The first 5 guests who responded were lucky enough to attend their own personal styling sesh at the Hive, and wore their picks to the event (and they looked amazing). I'm going to be honest - I've been shopping there for years, and most of my closet consists of their clothes for a reason. They are located here right off of Camp Bowie. Chelsea, the manager, is so much fun and actually cares about the people who shop at Beehive and builds relationships with her clients. Everyone who works at Beehive is kind and always extremely helpful. If you've never been, indulge yourself and check out their instagram feed, @beehiveftworth, for updates about new styles and events!


The event as a whole was beautiful and so much fun. Special shout out to Krista for hosting this event in your gorgeous home! Thank you to all the wonderful ladies who came and enjoyed, and also to the vendors who provided all we needed for a truly memorable night!
