Today’s blog is all about an event that is close to my heart, and one that I’ve been involved with for years. The Ladies Lilac Luncheon is a special fundraising event for St. Mary’s School in Sycamore, and was founded in 2010 by some moms from the school. It has become a great success over the years, and is something I look forward to each year!
Obviously, it’s for such a great cause, but it also truly is a ton of fun, filled with some of my favorite things: there is a delicious buffet lunch, shopping, a fashion show, and beautiful, custom decorated tables. Local businesses and local women all decorate themed tables, and then attendees vote on their hard work and decor. There were some very clever entries this year, including the ‘Willy Wonka’ themed table, complete with the requisite Golden Ticket, and a very detailed 80’s themed table. This was the 7th annual luncheon, and I provide a photo booth for the attendees. I love coming up with the backdrop each year, and even provide props that I dream up and help create. This year, we opted for lots of color and fun, and the attendees jumped right in and made it even better with their big smiles and laughter.
