The ladies of Faye + Renee are floral and design geniuses, and their “Holiday Slumber Party” just goes to show how talented they are when it comes to styling the perfect event! Brookmill Farm served as the perfect getaway for this small intimate gathering, which was the sixth annual Christmas party that Amanda and Joanna throw for close family and friends. The event was complete with a semi formal cocktail party, “white elephant exchange”, turned into a contemporary pajama party! This utterly merry event came together well with the help of Rabbit Rabbit Crew + Amanda Brubaker, resulting in a dazzling outcome! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re so delighted to share some cheerful holiday inspiration with you all.
Happy Holidays from the Philly In Love Crew, xoxo!
From Faye + Renee: “For us, the holiday season is definitely the most wonderful time of the year and as a tradition, we really love capping it off celebrating with our family and friends that have supported us and Faye and Renee.”
“We enjoy going all out; sending formal invites, getting dressed up (and dressed down for a slumber party) and surrounding ourselves with good food. Our intention is to create a magical experience where our closest friends can get away from the hustle and bustle and feel the love and warmth that the holidays bring. We were fortunate to include some of our vendors friends we worked with this year in the makings of our holiday party, which was extra special to us!”
“The party was held at a stunning new venue, Brookmill Farm in Lambertville, NJ. We worked with the owners, Zak and Ali on their wedding this fall, as well as several others which resulted in spending so much time there that it almost became a home away from home! The venue sleeps up to 25 people so we were able to turn our holiday bash into a cozy sleepover complete with Christmas movies and a hot cocoa bar.
We designed the main entrance and entertaining room with brass terrariums which held anemones (our favorite!) and ranunculi then accented with candlelight to create additional ambiance throughout. We also outfitted the space with some of our rentals and props including green vintage settees, whiskey barrels and brass detailed bar cart. ”
“We offered a signature cocktail, a sparkling pomegranate punch, to welcome guests as they entered, and our friends at AG Catering created the most delicious menu which was served as small bites passed throughout the evening. ”
“Our good pal Nicole from Rabbit Rabbit Crew helped us on the planning details and created all of the paper goods – how cute are those invitations?! She also designed a custom mug we used in the hot cocoa bar and as a favor giveaway for our guests to take home with them. ”
“Photographer Amanda Brubaker hung out with us for the day as we prepped and styled and photographed the merriment of the whole event so magically. She really captured the details and the spirit we were hoping to bring to the celebration. ”
“The party was a perfect end to a great year and were thrilled to spend it amongst family and friends both personal and professional. We can’t wait to see what next year brings and do it all over again!”
