A toast to friends!
Presenters Paula Buttel and Mary Ann Johnson at a recent Design Studio "Friendship & Fashion" Event

Design Studio co-founder/co-owner and French scarf expert par excellence, Paula Buttel, demonstrated simple, yet stylish, scarf-tying strategies. Guests toasted their own scarf-tying mastery with champagne and sweets and were rewarded with a beautiful new pink pashmina - all for the price of admission to the event!

Watch for more upcoming Design Studio events this spring! Tickets to these popular events sell out quickly.
