Barry Dixon Event Update!

We updated our Facebook cover photo (you like us on Facebook, right?!) to serve as a little reminder that our exciting Barry Dixon event is coming up in just a little over a month!

Barry Dixon is coming to SummerHouse!

If you haven't already, be sure to make plans to attend SummerHouse on May 9th to meet internationally renown interior designer Barry Dixon as he signs copies of his latest book, Barry Dixon Inspirations, and gives guests a peek at his brand new collection with Arteriors!

It'll be a wonderful night with a little live music, some savory Southern fare, and a lot of design inspiration! We are looking so forward to this event and can't wait to see you here on Thursday evening, May 9th!

Save the Date for Barry Dixon!

Ok everyone... We have something VERY cool to announce!!

We're honored and excited to inform you that Barry Dixon (yes, THE Barry Dixon) is coming to SummerHouse for an event on Thursday, May 9th! Be sure to go ahead and mark your calendars...

Not only is Barry known worldwide for his amazing taste in interiors, but he's got some pretty serious ties to Mississippi! He graduated from Ole Miss and has used his design to spread warm Southern hospitality all over the globe. One of the pieces from his latest collection for Arteriors was actually inspired by a church in Clarksale, MS!

Save the Date! Barry Dixon coming to SummerHouse on May 9th!

This will be our biggest event yet (and y'all know how we love getting a good party together!) so we'll keep you posted as the details get sorted! Stay tuned!

For now, grab that date book and a pen and make a note on MAY 9TH for the event of the year!

Save the date for a Meet and Greet at SummerHouse on May 3!
Mitchell Gold (yes, the one of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams!) will be at SummerHouse for the evening as we celebrate the new Spring 2012 line of beautiful goods from this world-renown furniture company!

A wine tasting provided by Calistoga Wine and Spirits, plus some fantastic tunes mixed by DJ Young Venom, will set the tone for the evening as everyone gets the chance to oooh and aaah over the new MG+BW pieces while visiting with Mitchell.

{ consider yourself formally invited! }

We will see you on May 3!

Recap of SHOP LOCAL SOCIAL

We are FINALLY getting a blog post up about this! We are just now recovered from all the fun we had! If you were here, you know what we're talking about! DJ Young Venom played some pretty awesome tunes to set the backdrop for the evening. VIP Catering, Soulshine, and Hey Cupcake showed us their stuff with the wonderful food they provided, and Vintage Wine Market was able to give some education in Wine 101.  We learned all about the whites:  sweet vs. dry, bubbly vs. non-bubbly, what is good with spicy food and what is good with sweet food.... We could go on and on with all of our newfound knowledge!

In addition to the fabulous DJ, the amazing wine, and the to-die-for food, we had quite the stylish photo booth! Here are a few of our favorite staff pictures from "inside the booth:"

We would like to thank all of the wonderful businesses that contributed to our swag bags! All of our VIP's enjoyed sifting through their prizes to see what local swag they would be walking away with! We had items from Millie D's Yogurt Shop, Fusion Coffeehouse, Body Anew Medical Spa, Kinkade's Fine Clothing, CoatTails, Broadstreet Baking Company, Metropolitan Bank, Crawford Eye Care, Jackson Free Press (of course), SummerHouse (of course, of course...), and several others! We think our VIP's were well pleased! Here's the proof :)

They seem pretty elated with their bags, don't you think?!

Lastly, but certainly not least, we would like to thank Anne Taylor Duease for coming out and showcasing all of her beautiful Adonis jewelry.  A few of us walked away with some brand new bling, and we're so excited about it! Anne Taylor is so much fun to hang out with-- we love when she gets to come around!!

SHOP LOCAL SOCIAL was such a great success, that we are talking about doing it more often! Maybe quarterly, maybe twice a year.... What do you think we should do?!  We wanted to give one more "thank you" to Jackson Free Press for all the hard work they put into this event-- it would not have happened without you guys!! We look forward to next time! :)

Shop Local Social UPDATE!

Happy Friday to all!

We've ordered some really fun decorations for our SHOP LOCAL SOCIAL photo booth and they have started coming in!! We are going with a "browns, creams, and coraly oranges with a shot of turquoise" color theme!.  We are in LOVE with these tissue pom poms from our new favorite etsy shop

We are also pretty excited about the props we ordered from The Paper Stache... This picture will give you an idea of what you'll have to choose from while cheezing in front of the camera!

Ladies, did we mention that our photographer, Byron Wilkes, recently won the award for "Best Arm Candy" at the Jackson Free Press Chick Ball?  We can't wait to meet him... We hear he is pretty awesome!

To our VIP's:  Get excited! The swag bags are filling right up! We add something new to them pretty much every day! :)  As of this very moment, we have ten VIP spots left to fill.  We will find our last ten lucky winners next week.  If YOU want to be a VIP and your name is not already on the list, all you have to do is keep a really close watch on our Facebook page.  When we post a status update to the effect of, "Be one of the next three people to comment on this post and you'll get a spot on our VIP list!," then you comment at that time, on that post, and you're golden!

We look forward to seeing ALL of you at the party! With your friends. In your party gear. Ready to go!

See you on Thursday, 4/28 from 5:00 to 8:30!! Can't wait!

Happy New Year!

Is 2010 really almost over?  This year has completely flown by! We at SummerHouse are looking forward to a fun and exciting 2011. We already have some fun events in the works! Stay tuned for details about our "For the Love of Art" event coming up in February, where we will feature several of our favorite artists and their amazing work. 

For now, we thought we'd give you a little party planning inspiration so you can celebrate the change from 2010 to 2011 in style! Here are a few fun NYE decorating ideas for you!

While we are on the topic of parties, what is a party without a signature cocktail?! We found a couple of recipes that sounded pretty delicious.  Take your pick!! :)

 

We hope all of you have a very safe and happy new year!  Thanks to all of you for being so meaningful to us.  What would we do without all of you?!  Have a great holiday, and until next year..... CHEERS!
