Tonic & Bliss: Sequoia Summer Gala

By: Dana Reed | July 16, 2019 | Parties

An evening filled with hues of pinks and blues at the Tonic & Bliss Summer Gala hosted by Sequoia.

THE PARTY took place at Sequoia’s Georgetown waterfront restaurant on June 13th when it splashed into summer waters with a mermaid and a beach ball contortionist provided by Skylark Creative Group. There were also plenty of pictures taken in the themed photo booth and lounges provided by Design Foundry. Rosy Posy finished the scene with their lush, tropical florals.

THE PEOPLE Among those in attendance were Quaid Coxsey and Tatum Jelinek from Ark Restaurants, as well as the area’s best known bloggers, influencers and style icons who received beautiful, personalized invitations provided by The Curious Fox Press. Guests had a sweet start to the night with cotton candy dry ice champagne that left them wanting more.

BEST IN SHOW Sequoia's catering was impressive and delectable and was finished beautifully alongside tasty desserts from Signature Sweets By Amanda. The party wouldn’t have been a hit without the live band from Washington Talent and DJ Heather Femia creating the perfect atmosphere for the night.
