JH Pink breakfast
10 Oct 19
With Breast Cancer Awareness Month starting last week, we held an intimate breakfast in celebration of the special women in our lives at our workroom. We had a lovely breakfast catered by Catroux, coffee by Mutual Friends and beautiful flowers by Floral Stylist Co. Thank you to Karen Ishiguro for capturing the morning.
With Breast Cancer being the most common cancer amongst New Zealand women, it is important to raise awareness and continue to talk about it.
