Behind the Scenes: A Surprise For Everyone

With the big day happening next week, BVL members are hard at work prepping all the details to make this year’s event just as spectacular as past years. Members come together to help out where help is needed. Just this past Tuesday, a bit of bow tying and Wonderful Witchy Women labeling brought several women from different committees to  accomplish this task – packaging 500+ gold boxes for each and every attendee filled with…well…you’ll see. We think you’ll get a kick out of it.

Oh and in case you haven’t gotten around to it, tickets are on sale through this coming Monday, Oct. 22nd. Hope to see you there!

Signature Events – The Kentucky Derby & U.S. Open Tennis

How about a once-in-a-lifetime or priceless event? Spectating could never be more thrilling than a seat at The Kentucky Derby or in the stands at the U.S. Open Tennis Championship. Pay attention to the dates and make sure you clear your calendars for these amazing opportunities. They don’t come around often.

2018 Centerpieces – Front and Center

IMG_9252 copyOur design and decor team leader has once again WOW’ed us with her concept of this year’s Witchy Women centerpiece. Stephanie J incorporated another collectible witch from the Witches of Pendleton series, imported from the United Kingdom. Her name is Elizabeth Device. Isn’t she adorable?

Elizabeth is completely handmade and wears a black gown embellished with a lace overlay and shawl. Her witchy hat is made of black velvet with a lace overlay as well. A smiling face and hands are of hand painted porcelain. She holds one end of her black witchy broom which juts out behind her, though it’s difficult to see at this angle.

Elizabeth contentedly rests on top of metallic gold painted grape roots wrapped with warm, soft lights. Her faceted crystal ball sits on a crystal base awaiting her next conjuring.

You may purchase one of these beautiful centerpieces at the Wonderful Witchy Women With A Cause luncheon and fundraiser for $95. There will be a table just outside of the main ballroom. Make your purchase as soon as you can as only 65 were created. Like last year, we expect these to sell out quickly!
