Sweet Peach Revival Pics

The Sweet Peach Revival has come and gone but I wanted to share a few photos to help hold on to the memories. Beth Lord, who was my partner in crime all weekend, did an incredible job painting our logo on the burlap and I helped her make these pretty paper flowers that were cut, painted, glued, dried, folded- then stapled into position about 5 minutes before the doors opened. I barely had any time to eat the entire weekend, let alone take pictures- but I was able to steal away a few here and there. Enjoy...

I need to give a special thank you to the Knitterati members, Sandy M. Tyler and Julie Jeffers Rivard who shared a crocheted and knitted art piece of beautiful peaches and vines. This will ultimately be a part of an upcoming installation on the Atlanta Belt Line. So we were so happy to be able to debut it first...thank you! 

Our food vendors were amazing too- they included Emily from Emily G's, Sweet Grass Dairy, Ross from Cathead Vodka, mini peach pies via Cake Hag, wine growlers from 3 Parks and Mr. Shaun Garcia who came all the way from Greenville, South Carolina to cook for us and sell his incredible leather goods. Perfection...

A few fun pics of our vendors which included Kendall of Billy Reid Atlanta, Courtney of Honeycomb Studio, John Rich of Oakleaf and Acorn and Olivia who also donated her time to help us at the door...

Our Live Auction may have been my favorite part. A big thank you to Robin Huff who donated her time to be our incredible auctioneer. Linda Guy was also there to represent our charity of choice for the night: CASA of Fulton County. We made $3200 dollars by the end of it, thanks to our generous guests and all our donated items. So much good energy in the room that night...

Sunday's Bourbon, Bacon & Biscuit Brunch was crazy packed and fun and amazing- but sadly I never had one second of time to take a picture. These pretty pics come via Sarah Buckner....thank you Sarah. Jeff Santiago from Asheville came down to sing a few songs for us as well and we are so grateful for that- and equally grateful for Laura of Faith Flowers for donating the gorgeous flower arrangements. 

And a big thank you to the wonderful, adorable Otis James who stopped by to see us on his trip back from Charleston to Nashville. When the whole idea of this Revival began, both Beth and I wanted to have Otis come and ride around the streets on John Rich's bike to promote the event. We just laughed about it- and then it somehow just happened as we were about to close shop on Sunday. A nice end to a picture perfect weekend. A big thank you to all involved, too many to name here but I have hopefully addressed each of you individually. I am forever grateful for your support. I hope to have y'all join us for the next one. 

Happy Weekend! (and if you're in Atlanta, stop by Belly- quite a few of our vendor goods are still for sale...)
