The Montessori School :: Celebrating 40 Years!

The Montessori School held their 2011 Spring Gala Saturday at Aldie Mansion in Doylestown, celebrating with dinner and a silent auction fundraiser.

This gorgeous historical venue hosted the Van Trapp Family's first U.S. performance (I'm a huge fan of "The Sound of Music, if you can't tell...) in this vaulted room:

The beautifully designed posters, program, signs and various other print materials were created and produced by Man'z - a boutique branding agency in suburban Philadelphia.

There were all sorts of auction items, from theatre tickets to overflowing baskets, books and crafts made by the students, and even an interior design consultation with Carrie Leskowitz.

Special tribute was paid to Ralph Henninger, the school's first Director of Development, who was a big hit at The Montessori School.

Some fun shots from the photo booth!

Everyone was so friendly - especially the kind people who came out to visit me in the front room at the photo booth - bringing snacks and beverages and great conversation. So glad I was able to be part of the celebration; thanks again Paul and Nora for asking!
