Did someone says girls trip? Yes please! This amazing Summer Girlfriends Staycation is brought to you by our wonderful #PrettyPerfectPartner Michelle Gainey from Lemiga Events. “I recently had the chance to plan a getaway with a few friends and explore the beautiful community of Serenbe,” said Michelle. Located only 40 minutes outside of Atlanta in an area known as Chattahoochee Hill Country, the master planned oasis aims to focus on the elements of a well-lived life: arts/inspiration, nourishment, wellbeing, and education/awareness. Exactly what was needed after a busy winter season!”

“Our temporary home was located in Serenbe’s Textile Lofts. With architecture inspired from a turn of the century textile mill, the Lofts are built with hand laid brick and expansive windows. The industrial meets boho interior, designed by Julie Holloway Studio, was a dream with it’s mix of natural and luxe furnishings. From Sir With Love designed a stylish staycation invitation complete with a weekend itinerary to set the tone for what was sure to be a memorable getaway! And what better way to be welcomed after traveling than with a thoughtful basket of goodies. From From Sir With Love curated the perfect mix of yummy treats and festive keepsakes to equip our guests with a fun stay.”

“In our nonstop world, taking the time to slow down and simply breathe does wonders for the soul! Serenbe is home to Zoetic, a yoga studio that provides experiences that connect mind, body, spirit and nature. We had the privilege of taking a class with Zoetic’s owner Jeny Mathis at her incredible home studio.  Jeny gave us instruction on basic yoga moves, breathing techniques, and walked us through a labyrinth. It was amazing to have nature as a backdrop and be able to hear the birds and feel the breeze while we practiced the yoga exercises. After a refreshing yoga session we enjoyed the most incredible cold pressed juices from Bamboo Juices. Made on-site at Serenbe, Bamboo utilizes organic ingredients and the highest quality products to craft delicious health tonics and elixirs. A few favorites were the Cinnamon Yam (yam, red apple, cinnamon, carrot, sun chokes) which provides Hormone-Balancing, Skin Brightening, and Anti-Aging; and Spinach Apple (spinach, cucumber, green apple, lemon) a Skin Beautifier, Colon Cleanser, and Blood Builder.”

“For those of us who love beautiful things but don’t possess the talent to create beautiful flower arrangements, the desert terrarium workshop was perfect! Located in the center of Serenbe’s retail district, Forage and Flower is a floral and botanical design studio specializing in fresh designs with layers of texture, unique exotic florals and customizable containers. Co-owner Melanie Deyton, led us in a demonstration and then let us loose to create our own terrarium using a variety of cactus and succulents.”

“What better way to end our time together than with a beautifully styled table for lunch. The Textile Lofts’ outdoor living area was the perfect location for a view of nature while we enjoyed each other’s company. Everyone contributed their talents to create a beautiful experience. The Casablanca Steel Blue linen from La Tavola  provided a vibrant blue pattern for the table.  Custom Engraved White Carrara Marble Hexagon Coasters from Host & Toast doubled as place cards and favors.The place settings in shades of blue from Lenox included blue pinstripe glasses, silver Imperial Caviar flatware, and Marchesa Dinnerware.  Gorgeous textural white and green floral from Forage and Flower completed the tablescape.”

“Chef Christan Willis served a delectable spread of summer salads with ingredients sourced from local Georgia farms – Grilled Summer Vegetable Salad with Lemon Arugula Pecorino Pesto; Peach, Basil & Bruleed Goat Cheese Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette; Light Summer Caesar with Parmesan Chips, Baby Gems, Lemon Zest, Crispy Pancetta
And for dessert I made Lemon Sorbet Prosecco Floats!”
