How Social of me: part deux

Okay, I was waiting for the disc with the images on it, but thought I'd just take one more quick look before we move on to some other exciting events. Gotta love it when your ideas come together (and don't end up looking like a circus tent)!

Social was an event sponsor--this is comparable to our name in lights!

Guests came to the Gibbes Museum of Art to view the exhibition, curated by newly appointed Executive Director Angela D. Mack, called "Landscape of Slavery: The Plantation in American Art". There were large scrims in orange (Identity), red (Politics), purple (Protest), and green (Nostalgia), that helped tell the story of the exhibition-- very powerful, please go see it!

I brought the colors down to the Courtyard for the party, which not only tied it into the exhibition, but also gave the party a splash of Spring!

Duvall Decor helped with some really beautiful pieces from their rattan furniture collection, sheer pole covers and the colorful draping. I rented the tables/linens/chairs from Snyder, the Gibbes Women's Council flower committee did the fab florals, and Carolina Catering did the food and bar.

The menu included southern delights like duck and collard spring rolls, shrimp on mini grit cakes with remoulade sauce, and key lime tart sandwiched between benne seed wafers.

The evening was finished off by the sweet tunes of the Charlton Singleton Trio and the nice early-May Charleston weather (not too hot, not too humid).
