Lately, I've been up to my elbows in all things girly -- planning a Spring Fling party at work. If I show you some pretty pics, will you forget I haven't blogged in a month?
Didn't think so.
Still, here you go...
|I asked for a plant wall with our logo written in flowers. |
If Picasso and Miracle Gro had a baby, it would be Steve from Superior Florist.
|Every party needs cute boys in pink & orange ties. We had 74 of them. |
Did I mention they were models? And super nice? It's like spotting a unicorn.
|I never actually had the chance to eat the food, but if I had, I would have chowed down on this |
fried chicken and watermelon like it was my job.
|This was our perfume station. Guests could blend different scents and take 3 home |
from Bergamot based in good old Brooklyn, NY.
|This was our tribute to beauty then (as teens) and now (as ladies). |
Doesn't it kind of look like a set out of a Wes Anderson movie?
|Who could that be? I swear it's not me. I'm definitely not at the 8th grade prom (minus my date). |
And I'm certainly not wearing braces and electric blue eye shadow. Or a perm.
|These were the stairs to the penthouse, lined with candles & flowers. Just like in my apartment, |
minus the stairs, and the candles and the flowers and the penthouse.
|We filled the clawfoot tub with flowers. And it was the prettiest tub in the history of bathrooms.|
|About a month ago, we saw this selfie machine at a conference and just had to have it. It's from a company called SOOH. |
I still don't know how to pronounce that and now I know exactly how people feel about my last name...
|Coachella's got nothing on us with these flower crowns from Urban Outfitters.|
To no one's surprise, they "disappeared" in about an hour.
|I would like these straws in every drink I ever have for the rest of my life. |
If you would too, I suggest you contact For Your Party.
|Our mixologists taught guests how to make 3 cocktails. This one is a strawberry tequila sour. |
I'll have 7.
|Who wouldn't want to eat healthy with this amazing spread at the build your own bruschetta bar?|
The only question is... should you pronounce it bru-SKET-ta? Unless your name is Giada, I'm thinking no.
|Can you get over this space? It's called Gary's Loft in midtown -- the elevators suck but the rest of the place |
is so beautiful that it can make a raffle for shampoo and nail polish look like a work of art.
|Our talented photographers Ashley & Scott took over 700 pictures, including the ones you see in this post. |
This is the only one of me (if you don't count the then & now pic), and I look like I'm about to sneeze. Super.
|Anybody could learn to cook in a kitchen like this.|
|We used this for a dessert station, and I asked for liquid nitrogen so we could make sorbet & ice cream on the spot. |
Somehow, our caterer, Scott and his team at Bite, made it happen. See the smoke? They are magic.
|This is Jilly Hendrix, the coolest (and only) DJ I know. |
I wish I could keep her in my pocket so she could make the soundtrack of my life.
|We opened up the roof deck just as the sun was setting. This was the view.|
Man, this city is pretty.
|A look down at the kitchen from the roof.|
|String lights and outdoor heaters made a cozy atmosphere for something I called Night Brunch. |
Who needs dessert at the end of a party when you can have chocolate chip & banana pancakes?
I wish you could have been there too!
If you still read this blog, I promise I'll post something new soon. Maybe next week. Definitely before summer.
