Handley Breaux Designs | Bohemian Shakedown

We are excited to share with you our Bohemian Bop event! After working closely with designer, Heather Wylie, we created the perfect environment at a local hotspot in Birmingham- The Nest. We focused on creating a fun atmosphere for Heather to release her new line of tee designs from Bohemian Bop as well as the Bohem Del Mar fashion preview. In addition to the clothing presented, the event featured pop up shops including Kate Morris Jewelry, Maudern Art by Mary Maude Crenshaw, and henna from the Gypsy Leaf. Beautiful models meandered through the party showing off Bohem’s new designs while guests sipped cocktails from Cathead Vodka.

Handley Breaux Designs | Antiques at the Gardens Art of the Rose

The 2015 Antiques at the Gardens was a huge success! Thank you to each person who came to the show and supported the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, we appreciate it! The 'Art of the Rose' floral tastemaker hallway was really a welcomed addition to the show. The installations were up from Thursday to Sunday -- only a few roses wilted! 

I personally want to thank each tastemaker for their participation in the event. Each installation was incredible! Throughout the show, we had voting open for the People's Choice award and drumroll please.....Mark Thompson & Jay Draper are the winners! They brought to live a Gustav Klimt painting and it was just spectacular.

Over the top, outrageous, unforgettable...phrases that are synonymous with Christopher Confero. He creates true event experiences through design, florals, and creative use of lighting.
