2018 Define & Flourish
our first year
Over 100 Flourishers gathered for our inaugural even on February 22, 2018. Our Volunteers hosted our guests and truly made the event a warm, welcoming and unforgettable experience. Our workshop leaders, Lauren Elise, Lhey Bella, and Meka Allen led the day with instructive workshops. Erin Condren provided a super fun “recharge” break in between the workshops and surprised guests with amazing products as well as gift cards to shop at their Austin Flagship Store. The day continued on with the Swap, where guests mixed and mingled and swapped goodies and treats with one another. Shopping opened up for guests shortly after the swap. Micheals, North Branch, and an array of shops spoiled guests with some amazing swag. Define and Flourish happily greeted our 2018 vendors: Beyond Prints, Dulcet Bake Shop, Little Craft Place, Mommy Lhey, North Branch, Once More with Love, Paperie Factorie, Pen Gems, Rose Rose Calligraphy, The Standard Essential, Simply Gilded, and Wonton in a Million. Guests also enjoyed games like “Name that Tune,” and a scavenger hunt! Dulcet Bake Shop treated guests with an interactive cupcake bar. Before our final group picture, we ended the night with a grand prize drawing for a Silhouette sponsored by SK Houston. The party continued at Mongoose and Cobra where guests enjoyed light bites and libations!
