On August 8, 2021 at Castle on Stagecoach in Little Rock, Arkansas, Vibrant Occasions Catering had the opportunity to cater Fleur de Muse, a virtual fashion and floral design show. In true artisan style, our team curated an array of sculptural hors d’oeuvres to compliment the vibe of the showcase. Models walked out of the ornate sunroom door of the castle and down a garden-filled stone staircase. At the end of the staircase, our tuxedo-clad servers offered architecturally-designed nibbles atop silver platters, which the models enjoyed poolside. Models donned fashions by Paul Rainwater with Q Clothier and Tess Mann with Couture by Tess Bridal. Althea Wiles with Rose of Sharon Floral Design Studio added fresh floral accessories to each look such as hair clips, flower crowns, necklaces, anklets, bracelets and more as the kick off for her product launch, Living Muse Style Sets. Did you miss the show? No problem! Watch the live, unedited replay by Central Arkansas Entertainment here or the creative film by Chad Byrd here.
“So many great people were a part of every detail. The Castle on Stagecoach always sets the stage for an event to be remembered. Paul Rainwater continues to raise the bar for the wardrobe game. Vibrant Occasions gave a tasty presentation. I am so thankful I got to be a part of experiencing a small taste of all that these people do so well,” says Chase Rackley with The Rackley Team and model for Fleur de Muse.

“The Fleur de Muse virtual design show is the first-of-its-kind that I have seen. Everything about it was unique, and it was put together so well. From the beautiful floral pieces to the dreamy bridal gown I had the privilege of wearing, it was nothing short of exquisite. The team of vendors and crew members worked hard and the end results show it. I hope to see another collaboration in the future,” says Samantha Anderson, model for Fleur de Muse.
