Our First Members-Only Event at Thompson Nashville Was a Celebration of Community
Community is a cornerstone of our CURATEUR mission, so we’ve been patiently awaiting the day when we can gather together in person and celebrate those of you who have been loyal supporters! And last Thursday, June 2nd, we finally did exactly that! For our first ever members-only event at Thompson Nashville, we welcomed a group of 30 members new and old for an evening of cocktails and conversation.
The intimate affair kicked off on the luxury hotel’s outdoor terrace where guests mixed and mingled while enjoying complimentary beverages from Happenstance Whiskey and Wölffer Estate and bites provided by Thompson Nashville. Afterwards, our panel (decked out with blooms by Lilian’s Floral Studio) of stylish locals Mary Lawless Lee, Cassie Kelley, and Lindsay Ell led our group into a lively discussion about all things fashion, including what defines Nashville style. Following the inspiring chat led by CURATEUR‘s own Mia Colona, members ended their evening with gifts provided by Riddle Oil, Skin Pharm, Bevē Boutiques, e.Allen, mali + lili, HAPPY by Liz Gale, and Gussi.
While in Nashville, we also reached out to a few other influential locals and invited them to dinner to discuss the message and mission of CURATEUR! Together we sat down for a stunning meal in Marsh House‘s private dining room. In addition to gifting from all our previously mentioned brand partners, these ladies all got to take home bouquets by Gramercy & Grace, plus pair of boots from Ranch Road Boots to complete the full Nashville experience!
