my dear friend, abi blackerby, {mentioned here} is not only funny, beautiful, and charming- but is the representative for the gorgeous orton plantation gardens; a historic plantation grounds used for events & weddings here in wilmington.

each year abi, in collaboration with focus on the coast magazine, heads up a popular event involving 300-400 women called “Girl’s Nite Out” that supports the pink ribbon campaign and raises breast cancer awareness. the event is then featured in each year’s october issue of focus on the coast, which is national breast cancer awareness month.

it’s a huge night of live music, food, wine & drinks, painting demos, giveaways, and of course- tons of ladies in pretty pink!

abi came to me and asked if i would create something she could wear in her hair that would fit her personality, yet also be perfect for the night.

after numerous trips to the fabric store, too many swatches of pink, and the hunt for the perfect button- i give you abi’s lovely!
