Deanna, founder and owner of Sophisticated Linen, wanted to celebrate her birthday in a non-traditional way. She shared her day with women entrepreneurs; both veteran and aspiring. With running a full time career and business, Deanna made time to create her first New Orleans women empowerment celebration event. It was the first of many events at the Timberlane Country Club in Gretna, LA. There was a beautiful panoramic view of the putting greens and golf course along the back of the room.
Sophisticated Linen decorated the clubhouse with amazing décor. A balloon filled entrance, beautiful floral arrangements, and elegant draping set the tone for a sophisticated event. Guest speakers spoke with words of wisdom, small business experience, and empowerment. Prayer, uplifting songs, and a spiritual word from Pastor Shawnell Reed uplifted the souls of the attendees, as well as, the other vendors. A delicious dinner, cocktails, and an amazing cake made it a well rounded event. Deanna was ready to party and dance the night away with her fellow women in business. And like any true New Orleans event, the night of empowerment concluded with a second line and live music by the Hundreds Brass Band. This New Orleans women empowerment celebration event was definitely one to remember.
We hope you had a truly blessed birthday, Deanna. We wish you many, many more and look forward to your next women empowerment celebration!
