I can’t stop smiling when I think about this year’s Lily & Val company holiday party held at PointBreezway, the cutest and most charming little venue in Pittsburgh. It was the perfect, cozy setting for our intimate gathering. I think what makes this party so surreal is that just one year ago, Lily & Val was a team of 3 plus our shipping department. This year, we are a team of 14! So much has changed in a year’s time and I’m grateful for every moment of this journey.

I could not be prouder of the amazing, talented bunch of people who work hard every day to bring you a great experience connecting and shopping with Lily & Val. The evening was our way to celebrate each person on our little team. Lindsey of Lindsey Zern  Photography captured our evening so beautifully!

I made a garland of fresh olive leaf and dispersed L&V pink-colored roses and carnations throughout. I also mixed in mercury glass vases and candle holders for a pretty glow. Chalkboard and gold place cards added another simple touch to the tables.
