A French-Nautical Soirée :: With Mark and Graham!

A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of hosting a preview party for Mark and Graham’s 2013 Summer Collection. Thirty or so creative gal pals from Austin and beyond gathered at my place for champagne cocktails, seasonally-inspired tartines and shopping the brand’s nautical-inspired offerings. From the stripe-centric photobooth to the thunderstorm that sent us all running for cover, it was a totally unforgettable night…and of course I had to share all the details as captured by Wynn Myers. Click through for the highlights, including a peek at Mark and Graham’s newest offerings and a few ideas of throwing a “French Nautical”-themed fête of your own!

A tiered galvanized stand displayed ingredients for cocktails, and guests could take their pick from the menu: lavender lemonade, french 75 or summer crush. (so tough to choose! Though the summer crush was a smash hit.)
