NEW ADVENTURE

I've got some exciting news to share! After years of fun in the DC sun, we're taking this party on the road! DC has been an incredible home and incubator for Piccadilly, that being said, it is time for a new adventure.

The next chapter will be written in Miami, Florida. (cue Will Smith) It's a place that has long had a special spot in my heart. It's vibrant color, culture and community has been a huge draw. While there's still a lot to be figured out, I hope you will follow along with me on this journey. We'll be updating insta regularly and we are still very much open for business via our virtual offerings.  

And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.
— Meister Eckhart

 

As always, thank you for your love & support!

WCW // LUCILLE BALL
I’m not funny. What I am is brave.
— Lucy
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
— Lucy

I know I'm not the first to say it, but I love Lucy. Lucille Ball wasn't just another beautiful Hollywood starlet, she was a pioneer.  In a time when it was not common, she showed women all around the world that you could be funny and beautiful, goofy and glamorous, a mother and a successful business woman. And, that you could, in fact, have your cake (or chocolates) and eat it too. 

Her legacy of laughter still continues today and that's why she's our #womancrushwednesday

xo, Hannah

FLOWER CROWNS
Sometimes you just have to throw on a crown on and remind them who they are dealing with.

What could be better than wearing a flower crown? I'm not really sure. Recently a few girlfriends and I got together for a private workshop at the Lemon Bowl DC with the beyond wonderful, Holley Simmons. She patiently took us through the steps of making a flower crown and gave us tips and tricks on how to make it last (my goal was at least through work on Monday).  Champagne cocktails flowed (responsibly) and the giggles were abundant. I think the final products speak for themselves.  I loved how each of us came up with something different that really represented our own unique perspective and style.

I'd highly recommend checking out one of the numerous workshops that the Lemon Bowl offers (not just flower crowns!). It makes for such a fun time and you end up with a skill that I, for one, will use many times in the future. Like I said, what could be better than wearing a flower crown?

GALENTINE'S SOCIAL
Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.
— Anonymous

One of the best things about having a party styling business is throwing parties with and for your friends.  Recently Piccadilly Creative co-hosted a Galentine's Day Social with the lovely ladies behind Tickled Photo Booth and Memories of Bliss. It was a sparkly, extra pink affair with plenty of girl talk, cocktails and happy vibes. 

We invited our girlfriends and fellow vendors (aka Friendors!) to join us at the Studios at 112 in Old Town Alexandria on a blustery cold February night. The space absolutely glowed with candlelight as laughter echoed throughout the rooms. Guests munched on yumminess provided by Couture Cakes by Sabrina and feasted their eyes on decadent bouquets of roses, tulips and ranunculus designed by Stem & Thistle

But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold
— Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Conversation flowed freely as guests lounged on pillows and sipped champagne cocktails all while classic chick flicks projected on the wall in the background.  There were several moments in the evening where I had to pinch myself that this is something we actually GET to do. How fun!

Life really is so much sweeter with girlfriends and I am so grateful that we took the time to celebrate the season of love with our gal pals.  I am also super grateful that the evening ended with karaoke.  You've not truly lived until you have heard us all sing old school Backstreet Boys.
