B is for Bloom

I am a person who loves themed parties... dress-up, or not.. I love a good party with a theme.. I am having a Bourbon, burgers and bling party at my house... soon... A marketing idea.. I had.. to figure out a way to get men... to shop for women... 

 ( Letter B... the next in the A-Z challenge) B is for Bloom



but I am digressing... I had a party 2 years ago... at a Photographers... and it was called a Glam party
a number of my friends came to celebrate my birthday.. and get their hair, make-up and photos done... it was tons of fun. She has a studio.. that is a entire room.. and balcony... she decorates it for holidays and parties and it looks elegant always.
So this year.. I wanted to talk to her about planning another outrageous... themed party... we are still in the planning stages.. but she is having a fashion show.. and I am part of it...
Vivian from Vivian photography...http://vivianphotography.com
has started a group for young women. The group meets twice a month... The group is a resource for young women in search for self, and their contributions to the community. The group focuses on self worth and self respect. The group explores problem solving and the awareness of a wide range of very key elements that effect the tender individual and the world at large.
  This group was started in memory or two young women... Victoria (Tori) Martorano and Alicia Quintana.. who died suddenly. Tori is Vivian's daughter who passed...

They meet here...at the "space" and sometimes even garden behind the studio.



The group is having a fashion show fundraiser... to raise money for a  Love in Bloom scholarship for a student at the school the girls attended...The fashion show takes place April 15, 2011 in Highland, NY.




I will be loaning out  my Stella and Dot jewelry for the event... and there will be a D.J... fashion show.. and food of course... IF you are from the area.. it's this month.. contact me... or Vivian.. tickets are only $5.00 dollars.
I am donating an amount to the fund as well.





I lost someone I knew who was 23 years old.. Her name was Robin.. I worked with her in the Nursery school... setting ... she was one of my assistants and we became friends...She died suddenly... and  Her mother has kept her memory alive with a beautiful website....www.whimsy24.com

So on this A to Z challenge ... I wanted to share with you letter B..for bloom.. the name of the group... Love in bloom.. the name of the fashion show... Bloom into Fashion....

I came by your site by way of the A-Z challenge - what a wonderful post and tribute to the young ladies.

I wish you great success with your Bloom event! If I was in the area I most certainly would have liked to attended.

I will send happy thoughts your way on April 15th which is the day after my daughter turns 24!
