The last few months have flown by as we’ve worked to open our new store. And with so much support from family, friends, and neighbors, we wanted to do something special to celebrate!
The day of our Housewarming Party arrived with a steady drizzle. The forecast predicted rain throughout the day, but right before the party, the clouds parted and the rain stopped. It felt like nature’s gift on our big day.
After so much hard work, it was lovely to take a few hours and enjoy the energy of the store with our new community in Leipers Fork, Tennessee.
SMALL BITES BY HENHOUSE FOOD TRUCK
We were so grateful to have Henhouse Food Truck join us for the afternoon and offer their delicious goodies. Executive chef, Nic Jones, crafts incredible food that he calls “farm-to-truck dining.”
We also collaborated with Henhouse to offer grab boxes in the store. Currently, we’re offering their Roasted Sweet Potato & Quinoa Bowl, an Apple & Butternut Squash Soup, a Mushroom Cream Soup (which was one of our most popular small bites at the opening), and an Orecchiette Pasta Salad. You won’t leave hungry when you come to see us at Patina Home and Garden!
MUSIC BY THE DELTAZ
The Deltaz, brothers John and Ted Siegel, performed in our Pickers Corner during the party. Their talented combination of blues, rock, and classic country created the perfect ambiance for the lively event. (More to come about the Pickers Corner soon.)
John and Ted even brought along some of their musician friends and inspired a fun gathering. I love how music brings people together, which is the inspiration behind the new store. We want the store to be a comfortable place for people to gather, and The Deltaz helped us create that atmosphere right away.
PATINA MEADOW HONEY
Greenwood Honey Co. worked hard to make sure our honey collaboration was ready for our party as well! We are so thrilled with how it turned out. If you can't come see it in person, don't worry, it will be available on our online store when it opens very soon!
OUR NEW FRIEND IN LEIPER'S FORK
It was wonderful to celebrate the opening of Patina Home and Garden with a mix of our old and new friends. We even had a visit from Leipers Fork legend, Marty Hunt, who ran Leipers Fork Antiques out of the storefront long before we arrived. Marty was instrumental in creating the community feel of Leipers Fork today, and we felt honored to have her join us.
The evening ended with a group rendition of You Are My Sunshine, and our friend Aubrey Preston joined in to sing along. It was the perfect way to mark this new beginning.
We can’t wait to see you in person someday at Patina Home and Garden. Be sure you’ve signed up for Letters From Brooke, so you’ll know about events like this in the future!
