Neuroblastoma Benefit Golf Tournament

About a month ago Harmony Gardens sponsored a Golf Tournament to benefit Neuroblastoma research.  The disease, although rare, is severe and has impacted our staff and my family personally when my cousin lost her baby last year.  Here are some pictures from the Aisy's Angels Golf Tournament, held at the Country Club of Mount Dora.  A few of us played and a few of us volunteered.  Joe and I kept our mad golf skills to ourselves, however Malcolm got out there though and showed that golf ball a thing or two!

"Best of Beauty Basket"

I'm sure you have heard the expression, Win-Win. Well this is definitely a win-win situation. You can look great and feel great at the same time.

I had the privilege of meeting an amazing woman a few years back. While my husband and I were in seminary, I kept hearing about someone named Casey. Awesome hairstylist - Casey, amazing photographer - Casey, artistic and talented - Casey, and an amazingly strong woman of God - Casey. She and her husband have two adopted children and are in the process of adopting two more from the Congo region of Africa. Here are the details of the upcoming adoption!

As a fundraiser to help with the insane expenses of international adoption, she is offering baskets of her favorite products in a specific category (i.e. baking, beauty, etc.) This month's basket is a bride's dream; all about beauty! Casey is a stylist and so she knows her products! In fact she reviews each of the products included, explaining why they are her favorites. She includes 30!!

Here is how it works:

For each $5 you donate toward the adoption of these two children, you will be entered to win this amazing basket. How cool is that? She does a new basket each month. Seriously, these baskets make me drool, because they are so cool. I hope this win-win idea has you just as excited. Good luck, hopefully I will get to see one of our Harmony Garden's Brides sporting some new beauty products!!

Let's help these two sweet children experience the joy of having parents and living in a stable climate and family!

Here is how to donate, to be entered into this drawing, and to read about some amazing products!

Letterpress Invites & Coaster Favors

Here are a couple of blogposts about the invitations and coaster favors that one of our Spring Brides designed for her wedding! She drew the image herself based on a picture of the groom and her and then had it printed utilizing a letterpress by G. Johanson, Printer. How awesome is that!?!

Dinner on the Deck

This Spring Harmony n Love Catering started offering one of the coolest dinner opportunities around. They offer a private, intimate, fine dining experience here in the Gardens. It is a five course dinner with the menu customized to each party. This is a perfect opportunity to celebrate an anniversary or special occasion or even to "pop the question"! Here are some pictures of one of the dinners. They were taken by talented Holly Pugh from Holly Pugh Photography. Cindi from Harmony n Love has quite a knack for making each event incredibly memorable even down to the smallest detail! Each of the "Dinner on the Deck" events we have participated in has been remarkably unique. I highly recommend inquiring into this opportunity for your next big occasion!
