Amid stunning artwork, glittering jewelry, fabulous hats, over-the-top perfect gifts and one-of-a-kind décor pieces, the SPCA of Texas held a kick-off party for Paws Cause 2015 at Flower Reign by Shane Walker on Cedar Springs in Dallas on Thursday, April 16. A delightful array of delectable hors d’oeuvres and champagne refreshed attendees, a photo booth captured the evening’s hijinks for the guests to share and a highly talented caricature artist sketched guests with whimsy and just a little bit of cheeky playfulness.
Flower Reign donated 20% of the purchase price of all products purchased that night. Special thanks to Flower Reign by Shane Walker for hosting the party, to Kristen & Scott Greenberg for providing the beverages and to Food Glorious Food for providing the delicious hors d’oeuvres.
