Don’t get us wrong, every day at the Alchemy Event Studio is like a fantasy vacation. It’s like smooth sailing on a chartered Caribbean yacht vacation with Ben in the kitchen and Rocky in a mermaid tail on the deck. That being said, we all needed a break this Memorial Day. We are gearing up for some out of town events, a few fantastic weddings, and – as always – some creative problem solving for all of our clients, so a little recharging of the event batteries was just what the doctor ordered.

Bravo’s “Below Deck”

Alchemist Olivia took her talents to the beach with her posse of party girls. Two members of her squad are also official members of the Alchemy Foraging Team, so we were all for the ladies surfing and sunning. We may even allow Olivia to expense a round of drinks. Maybe.

Lady Kate also headed to the water, but Mrs. Stone was attending a wedding rather than working on a wedding. Congratulations to the happy couple and bonus points to Kate who (we hope) didn’t try to micromanage the wedding installation. It would have been good if Kate had applied sunscreen…really…

Sassy Ms. Miller enjoyed an Atlanta staycation. She was a pupsitter to Bulleit– we’re actually ready for her to take the poodle plunge and get one of her own – and she relaxed with friends. Ashley enjoyed some pool time and caught up on her TV viewing. The lady relaxed !

Ms. Saltzman’s Memorial Day was spent with master-level chess and reading Plato. Actually, Amy’s holiday weekend included lots of laundry and dishwasher unloading – bliss – along with friend time at various dining tables and swimming pools and a side of live music thrown in for good measure.

All in all, it was a great holiday for all of the Alchemists and we hope it was a wonderful weekend for our friends and clients as well. Let’s not forget that all of this fun and relaxation is made possible by those who do the hard work so we can reap the rewards. A heartfelt thank you goes out to all of those in uniform. We do not lose sight of the sacrifices many have made and continue to make…
