Toasting Ten: Celebrating The Scout Guide Fort Worth Volume 10

Integral to The Scout Guide Fort Worth’s mission is connecting Fort Worth’s best and brightest. And while we relish every opportunity to gather with our vibrant community of like-minded business owners and creatives, it was particularly special to gather with our members to celebrate the launch of our newest guide, Volume 10.

A milestone guide, Volume 10 represents Fort Worth’s unwavering commitment to locally-owned businesses. A value indeed worth celebrating. In that vein, we tapped Fort Worth’s finest to help us throw a celebration worthy of the milestone.

Committed to supporting our community of local business owners, experts, and creatives, it was important we choose a venue that spoke either to Cowtown culture or the prodigious talents of our scouted members. Our search led us to the renowned Brent Hull of Hull Homes (Volume 9, Volume 10), who has spearheaded incredible restorations of iconic Fort Worth homes and Texas institutions.

Special thanks to Hull Homes clients Ashli and Todd Blumenfeld, who graciously opened their spectacular home to us and our members for our special evening. The recently completed Brent Hull Restoration was an incredible setting to celebrate with our nearest + dearest.

Guests’ first hint at the colors of Volume 10 — traditionally a secret until launch — came in the mail via the formal invitation suite designed P.S. The Letter. In true P.S. The Letter fashion, their talented team incorporated numerous thoughtful elements, including an archival photo of our venue for the envelope liner and calligraphy by longtime member Morgan DeGarmo.

Upon arrival at the Hull Homes restoration, guests were greeted by beautiful yellow blooms and a Mariachi Real De Alvarez clad in sunshine yellow. To the left of the entrance under the porte cochere, the newly scouted 1Thirtyone Motorcars (Volume 10) parked their vintage Chevrolet Corvette which, in its cheeky yellow hue, complemented the new guide perfectly. It was, of course, stocked with boxes of guides for guests to take on their way out.

Once inside, guests were treated to cocktails and a self-guided tour of the Hull Homes restoration. Drinks in hand, guests perused the exquisite details and finishes of the home before flowing out onto the sprawling back yard where local musician Jacob Armitage played by the pool. There, they enjoyed delightful streamer and step-and-repeat installations courtesy of West Fork Garden Market (Volume 9, Volume 10) and a balloon display by Pop! Fort Worth Balloon Co.

Longtime member Righteous Foods delighted with a full bar, complete with signature cocktails inspired by the guide, “Apricot & Sage Spritzer” and “Lemoncello Ranch Water.” In addition to these smash-hit sippers, Righteous Foods created a delicious menu of small bites and sweets. Highlights included Eggplant Bocadillos with Mozzarella and Pesto, Quail Croquettes with Romesco, Tuna Tostada with Sliced Fuji Apple with Fennel and Avocado, Wild Salmon Croquettes with Aioli, Lemon Tarts, and Macarons. 

Inspired by the milestone occasion, Tareka Lofton of Loft22 Cakes (Volume 8, Volume 9, Volume 10) created three stunning cakes and an array of equally gorgeous sweets, including cookie cakes. Each complemented the stunning yellow florals designed by Stems of the Kingdom.

We cannot express our gratitude for our event partners — especially Canon Sawyer, who captured the party so beautifully — and our members and TSG friends for joining us. The evening was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the legacy of our scouted community, the new guide, and the future of Fort Worth. It is, like our guide, so bright!
