February Open House
Barr Mansion hosted a beautiful open house on February 11th. It turned out to be an extremely cold and rainy evening, and for the few that braved the weather… it was worth it. Guests enjoyed passed appetizers, appetizer stations, cake, truffles, drinks and a signature cocktail. Andrew Sigler provided lovely ambient music throughout the evening.
Being so close to Valentine’s Day, we couldn’t help ourselves… we had a field day with a romantic Valentine’s Day theme. Pink and red roses, romantic words on the cake, truffles, shockingly pink hummus dip… all very fitting to the occasion and time of the year.
In addition to the hummus with cracker shards, guests enjoyed winter greens pizza, baby rueben burgers, a crab cocktail station, and passed prosciutto wraps.
As the evening went on and the sun went down, the candles began to flicker and the ballroom transformed into a candlelit twinkling affair. A vase in the middle of the bar with submerged white cymbidium orchids were lit up from the bottom of the vase by LED lights covered in crystals, letting the orchid centerpiece stand out from across the room.
A good time was had by those who came. Many, many thanks to the wonderful Lisa Shepard of aimage photography for braving the weather with us and providing these beautiful images!
