Our First "In Boutique" Event was a Success!

At Open Invitation Stationery, we pride ourselves in being more than just an "invitation or paper store". We are a full service stationery and gift boutique serving the Mississippi area and beyond. Our goal is to assist you with making all your special occasions memorable and unique, offering guidance and support every step of the way. We creatively craft and design intentional stationery and gifts you and your guests will love, cherish and remember for years to come.

With opening The Boutique back in April of this year, we wanted to add another level of service to our wheelhouse, offering in-person events that would provide the experience of engaging with others in our community who share similar passions and interests, creating an opportunity to meet new people.

This past week, that vision became reality as we hosted our first in-person event: The Dog Days of Summer Craft Cocktail Class.

This interactive class offered a fun evening, crafting two curated cocktails, delectable refreshments, cocktail and food recipes, professional barware and personalized cocktail accessories.

Participation exceeded our expectation! Locals from the metro area gathered and had an opportunity to network as well as learn to make some delicious cocktails. Because of the space we'd planned for the class, unfortunately we weren't able to allow everyone interested to come. We're working to spruce up the back half of The Boutique to allow for larger classes and socials in the future!

Thank you to all of our participants, we enjoyed each of you! We also had a few "distance learners' who were able to have an in-home experience.

Special thanks to our sponsors, staff and vendors who made the evening extra special.
