Happy International Women’s Day!

Every queen needs a crown, right? This International Women’s Day we present to you a collection of queens – and friends, mothers, potters, partners, daughters, mentors, mentees, coworkers, artists, leaders, readers, dancers, followers and business owners. 

Women these days take up a lot of spaces and places. So, we opened our doors as a place to gather. We made flower crowns, ate breakfast pastries, oysters and desserts, and took some photos. 

“Joining the Porch + friends ladies day was probably the most authentic way I could honor the significance of Women’s History Month. Having and continuing to cultivate a tribe of incredible women supporting each other is like an endless garden always in bloom—it’s inspiring, vibrant, colorful, and downright beautiful to witness and experience.”

-Casey Cawthon, VP of Marketing + Communications at Indy Chamber


“Even though a lot of us had met for the first time, there was already that support system. Not only was it a confidence boost, but it was fun! Women rock!”

-Stacia Bohnert, Director of Photography at Porch Marketing 

“Surrounding yourself with a community of women that believe in themselves and each other is always a good idea. We all had our hesitations in the creation process but came out with gorgeous unique pieces. I came away from the flower crown party trusting my own creative vision has a place in a room full of beautiful people.”

Katelyn Calhoun – Owner + Documentary Director at Teardrop Pictures
