You Don’t Want to Miss Our Next Council Meeting!

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at 9:30am

In addition to our business meeting, we will have a bake sale.  Please bring a baked good to sell and/or come to purchase some Thanksgiving delights!   We will also be selling a few garden-themed books that have been donated to our Council. But the fun doesn’t end there!  Our speakers Carrie Kennedy and Lexis Hay, Proprietors of Screendoor Events and Design will give us new ideas for decorating our homes for the holidays.

Lexis Hay has been designing events for over two decades after moving to the United States from New Zealand as a part of her late husband Stewart’s business. She and Stewart believed that bringing people together to celebrate life is always appropriate and essential to a life well lived. Now, Lexis intends to carry on this tradition by pouring her creativity and passion for celebration into styling homes and designing extraordinary and unforgettable events. As a mother of four children turned adults, Lexis is a proven multitasker and skilled organizer who is focused on ensuring her clients receive a high quality experience.

Carrie Kennedy grew up appreciating the beauty of set-tables, arranged flowers, and inviting atmospheres that bring together family and friends for memorable celebrations. As a mother of three children and two grandchildren, Carrie has turned her appreciation to practice with decades of experience hosting and designing events of her own. Now, she is excited to use her keen eye for style, artistry, and beauty to design events and homes with her unparalleled attention to the needs of her clients and passion for creating their dream settings and celebrations.
