retirement party ~ kaiser permanente

i was asked to do a lovely retirement party at kaiser permanente and it was a great opportunity to collaborate with new friends from fleuretica. kendra and euri have such great ideas and i was excited to work with them. they also suggested a great caterer who worked with our budget and provided an impressive spread for all 100 attendees.
