Recently, one of our fabbies, Allyson, received some very upsetting news. Her 2 month old nephew, Owen, was diagnosed with SMA Type I (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). SMA is a rare genetically inherited neuromuscular disease characterized by gradual muscle weakness due to loss of motor neurons of the brainstem and spinal cord. The lifespan of those affected by Type I SMA is only 1-2 years. He is a sweet and absolutely adorable little boy. In an effort to raise money for the family's medical bills and living expenses, his family has organized a fundraiser complete with a silent auction for some incredible items (including an Oh So Fab gift certificate!), a raffle, entertainment, food and drinks on June 29. If you are interested in attending the event, donating goods or services for auction, or simply making a monetary donation, please visit the website, http://www.fightforowen.com/ for more information.

Recently, Tina and Melissa completed a wedding fit for a queen (and king!) at Castle on the Hudson for a wonderful couple, Adriana and Kevork. The couple was from California and wanted their destination in New York, but also somewhere regal....what better spot than Castle on the Hudson in Tarrytown, NY?? Their vision was elegant and fitting with the ornate decor of the Castle itself. Melissa and Tina designed a palate of fall foliage and romantic toile and candlelight and it was a gorgeous wedding complete with spectacular florals from our very own, Giovanna (aka GG) and stationery from Bella Dia Custom Invitations.
