The Home Launch Party

Dalani had a little facelift last week and got a brand new name – The Home. To celebrate we threw a party on a rooftop in Surry Hills. Here’s a peek at the party! Marj Silva (Stylist & Buyer for The Home) and I had two busy days setting up for the party, organsing furniture, fireplaces, rugs, food, drinks etc. It was perfect weather and we all had a great night mingling with suppliers and our friends in the industry.
