Petticoats & Parasols Part II ~ Cupcake Vendor Night Party


The weekend event started off with the Welcome Southern Belle Soiree party, and Vendor night is when the fun really begins and kicks off the weekend!



Southern dresses, gloves, petticoats, hats, cameos,cupcakes, handmade crafts, vintage treasures was filled to the brim at Cheryl Day’s Back in The Day Bakery Friday evening.  What made the event most spectacular was the wonderful comradery of special women who ALL “get each other”! It’s not often we get to dress up, and have no responsibility to husbands or children. We are free to have fun and be one of the girls for the night!


All the gorgeous southern belles arrived in style via Old Savannah trolley.

I had so much fun this night and one day I will get to participate in the whole event. Thank you for letting me be a part of this Friday night and I can’t wait for Creative Connection! Is there anyway you could post a list of the vendors..I know you are trying to get it all in and take care of those sweet kiddies of yours but I didn’t know some of them and there were several girls asking if there was a list posted somewhere.
Thanks Jenn!

What fun! Everyone looks beautiful.
