A Secret Garden Party took place at Downtown Springfield’s The Shops at Marketplace on Wednesday, July 13. The event was hosted by Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and marketplace business owners.
Guests perused the beautiful shops — Simply Serendipity, Garden Moss Design and Cheeky City — and enjoyed delectable hor d’oeuvres and desserts by Log Rolling Catering. Music by singer Sarah Elizabeth Charles and pianist Jarrett Cherner set the soundtrack to the party. Refreshing champagne drinks, sangria and iced teas were served alongside charming outdoor decor.
As guests arrived, Garden Fairies handed out envelopes with secret surprises, including gift certificates and other prizes. Unique henna tattoos were provided throughout the night and the event featured a fashion show featuring Simply Serendipity’s new line. A portion of ticket sales benefited Angels Take Flight and additional sponsors included Path University, DOCKIT and TLS Foods.
