I am lucky to serve on the board of a fabulous group called FemCity Atlanta. Our aim is to create authentic, supportive connections between forward-thinking, ambitious professional and business women. It’s a great group of women entrepreneurs who all about supporting and promoting each other. Each time we get together, we leave empowered to get over the hurdle we are facing and ready to take that next bold move we were tentative to take beforehand.
So when it was time to celebrate our anniversary, we did it in style. Our special guests for the evening were the creators of Vixen Vodka, LeeAnn Maxwell and Carrie King. On a girls beach trip they were sipping vodka by the pool and said, jokingly, “we should own stock in vodka.” That statement turned into, “we should create our own vodka, for women!” From there, they got to work! We were so inspired by their story and loved the Vixen anthem.
“I am more than my reflection in the mirror. I am bold. Brilliant. Beautiful. I rule every room I enter. I am empowered. I live life on my terms, not terms dictated by celebrity trash mags. (Although let’s face it, a good trash mag makes a plane ride a lot less boring.)
I am a survivor. A warrior in stilettos. And every accomplishment I’ve ever made, every heartbreak I’ve overcome, I’ve done it with class, sass and a glass half-full. Because being a Vixen is a badge of honor — a commitment to myself that I’m worth it, that I’m incredible just as I am.
I am a Vixen.”
To decorate, I hung this great crepe paper back drop (I did something similar at Image Design Camp) and brought in some FemCity-fabulous props for the photo booth (“booths” do not need walls). I kept the rest of the décor very simple with large cut confetti made from awesome scrapbook cardstock and floral arrangements made with hot pink blooms and peacock feathers.

All in all, a wonderful evening celebrating the accomplishments of bold women and powerful vixens everywhere!
