June meant we were lucky enough to spend a long languid brunch at New Orleans hotspot, Effervescence with the fabulous and hard working ladies from the Preservation Resource Center! They certainly work hard to bring the Preservation Resource Center’s mission life— to promote the preservation, restoration, and revitalization of New Orleans’ historic architecture and neighborhoods.
This summer they launched the annual Mid Mod Nola series featuring a variety of events exploring the sharp angles, flat roofs, soaring glass walls and other hallmarks of mid-century modern architecture in New Orleans— The series kicked off June 2nd with the Tower Fantasy exhibit (so fun!) and concludes July 26th with a virtual reality tour of the once-grand Rivergate Convention Center! For a full schedule of remaining events, click here.
As the annual Mid Mod NOLA series rolls along this summer, we thought the hard working and fabulous ladies from PRC definitely needed a well-deserved celebration. So, what better way to celebrate than a champagne brunch in our new French Blue Roses collection featuring bubbles and baubles?!
