EveryDay is a HollyDay Featured in TriNews Online Paper
If you live in Charlotte, NC, you should know that we have our own version of the Kentucky Derby the last Saturday of every April in Waxhaw, NC. It's a charity horse race that goes all day! You can sit on a blanket and have a picnic or you can rent a tent (b/c the event is rain or shine) and invite your friends!
I've set up a beautiful tent, or 4, for the Queen's Cup and win the "Most Creative Tent" of the entire event! This particular year I did an all white theme because it was HOT!!! Below are photos from my event that were featured in our local newspaper!
