The third NAPCP Retreat was held this April in the gorgeous Charleston, SC! This is the second Retreat I have been a part of and definitely our most ambitious to date. I had the most amazing time helping to plan out the details for each event and working with our amazing team to execute the final look. I also had the opportunity to design some of the pretty letterpress pieces each attendee received including programs, and custom tags, as well as illustrate the cards for our custom Retreat Kits! (Letterpress printing done by the fabulous Farmwood Press; flat printing done by Imagers; kit boxes from Uline)

We hosted a Welcome Reception the first night at this gorgeous terrace venue attached to our hotel. It had beams over top from end to end that we hong lanterns and mason jars from. The mason jars contained electric tea lights to add a little extra ambiance as it got darker. Our team also created custom floral arrangements for each table with pretty pink peonies and cream roses. All of the stunning party decor was donated by the wonderful folks at Minted! The decor set we used is called Rose Colored Glass and was created by the wonderful Kelli Hall 🙂
