Hiya Cakies! Do you know what we love so much about this job? (Aside from all of you, of course!) Collaborating with other creative ladies we know who are starting businesses, doing inspiring work, just generally be awesome women. You know what we mean! And part of the fun in having our very own space (Festoon LA, if you haven’t heard!), is being able to host real life events so we can actually talk to people in person, as opposed to just over the internet. It feels so good to come out from behind our computers after all of these years! Last week we planned a wee cocktail party to celebrate the launch of an exclusive bridesmaid gift box we created with our long time friend, Catherine, of Bestowe Gifting.
Naturally we had to call in a bunch of our favorite wedding peeps to make the party pretty. It’s wedding season after all, right?! Not that you need a wedding to plan a festive event. We’re fans of over-the-top gatherings all year round.
Our gal Felisa brings it every time with her floral creations!
That sign tho. ☝️👇
And hey, meet Catherine! She’s the lady behind these lovely gift boxes. She’s based in Oakland but ships everywhere and she’s kind of an expert at finding the perfect gift for the perfect person.
Here’s a little peek at our bridesmaid gift box, available on her site right here! She’s also got a bunch of other cuties at every price point to fit any style.
And if you’re looking for super special welcome boxes for your guests, she’ll curate a custom box just for your event! ‘Cause when you’re planning an *entire* wedding it’s kind of nice to have an expert help with the final details.
Obviously had to have summery cocktails from our friends at Pharmacie.
That can of rosé from Scribe Winery gets allllll the heart eyes right there.
And a party wouldn’t be complete without perfectly prepared bites from Room Forty.
Live music makes a party feel so spesh. Our A-list members Dart Collective set the mood perfectly, every time.
Catherine asked Electric Eunice to create custom name tags for guests too, and it was so inspiring watching her work her lettering magic in person.
Our mobile island at Festoon makes a pretty little bar, dontcha think? Don’t tell but it’s not done yet. Can’t wait to share it when the whole piece is complete.
Oh hai. It’s us!
Thanks for popping over to see the party! We can’t wait to host so many more of these. And BTW, Festoon is totally available for you to host your own events any time too! Drop us a line if you’re interested in learning more.
And don’t forget to check out the beautiful gift boxes from Bestowe for an upcoming event or celebration too!
