I recently had the privilege to attend Notte Viola Masquerade Gala in support of The Baeumler Family Foundation on Thursday May 23.   If you are not familiar with the HGTV shows Leave it to Bryan, Disaster DIY or House of Bryan,  Bryan Baeumler and his wife Sarah launched this event to raise money for The Baeumler Foundation. This foundation provides renovations for children and families in need of accessibility and safety in their homes. 

The Gala was a launch for many more events to come from the Baeumler Family.  With the beautiful décor and eye of Sarah this gala was absolutely stunning.  The night started off with a purple carpet walk for celebs in attendance many from your favorite HGTV shows! The master of ceremonies was Rod Black and a Musical performance from Jully Black! 

HPNOTIQ Liqueur gave a glimpse at their NEW HPNOTIQ BFF Harmonie coming summer 2013!  A beautiful purple bottle with a berry floral taste. The welcome cocktail was the original HPNOTIQ Liqueur shaken up with purple sugar on the rim. Perfect start to an amazing evening. 

There was a silent auction of sports items, jewels and even a wooden dinosaur! The live auction was very exciting with some very beautiful artwork featured from Stacie Krupa. @KRUPA_ARTIST

The Food Networks David Rocco and Lynn Crawford were the creators of the reception and the dinner of the evening. 

I had the pleasure to talk with Jo Alcorn and Carson Arthur about some design and my backyard planting! Had a quick hello with Paul Lafrance (HGTV Deck'd Out) and his wife who were best dressed for sure!  Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault (CityLine) was such a positive happy person to talk to and Mary Zilba from The Real Housewives of Vancouver was so sweet and beautiful! For me this was such a wonderful experience and to top it off I got a picture with mike Holmes! Jealous Mom??
