No celebration is complete without the entertainment!  We will travel through the color cloud of Collage dancers, hear the soulful tunes of Pat Register and move to the Brazilian beat in our secret garden escape. 


From time to time, we are all looking to escape the chaos of life...and this magical garden party will give you a beautiful outdoor vibe in an indoor experience.  Blooms abound, as you walk across carpets of beautiful grass and catch a twinkle of gold metallics in a modern color palette.



What's more fun than seeing everyone in hats, fascinators, hair adornments and headdresses? Women in hats can turn even the most gorgeous garden into a scenic party. This spring fling will be Audrey Hepburn in Paris meets Easter Sunday at a Southern Baptist Church. Just you wait, this will be an affair to remember! 


Since people don't get all dolled up anymore, this is just the occasion for it! What are we celebrating, you ask? The remarkable women who effortlessly navigate life, community, career and motherhood. So, grab your best dress, jumpsuit, or ensemble and get decked out for a celebration of YOU!



No fete is complete without delicious nibbles and divine beverages. At every turn, your tastebuds are in for a treat and you will leave in search of these wonderful recipes you've experienced. 



With a touch of Memphis, the Central Station Hotel Grand Ballroom is not only the setting for this exciting event, but if you choose, it can be your weekend, 'home away from home'. Enjoy this historic jewel as we escape into recognition and revelry!
