On November 13th, The White Dress in Color-Wedding Inspirations for the Modern Bride was officially launched at The Lace Factory in Deep River, Connecticut. The event was orchestrated by Jubilee Events whom we collaborated with for this event.
Hallway lined with canvases that highlighted images from different chapters of the book.
What's a party without a little sparkle and glamour? They had a confetti station (or party buffet as I'd like to call it) where you could spoon in sequins, metallic specks, and colored paper confetti into a glassine envelope to take home...
and before sealing the whole thing up with gold tape you sprinkle a little (or a lot of sprinkles in my case) glitter to make the package complete. The station was provided by The Confetti Bar operated by owners Jessica & Clifford, a married couple who were super friendly.
They had custom confetti for the event. I love all the little details. I am also in love with the following made by Jessica: Unicorn Dandruff, Strawberry Donut, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Awesome Sauce and countless others. Oh, the possibilities...
Here are the the authors of the book from left to right: Carla Ten Eyck, Candice Dowling Coppola, and Beth Lindsay Chapman.
Chambre de Sucre can customize favors for any occasion now. We do sugar and tea favors for weddings, engagements, baby showers, bridal showers, christenings, anniversaries, product launches, birthdays, holiday parties and any other special occasion you can think of.
provided a cupcake making station and let me tell you, these were to-die-for delicious! Maria was even kind enough to prepare two extra cupcakes for us to go for the 4 hour (what was supposed to be two hours) ride back home that night.
I watched as Maria effortlessly put together the cupcakes together for me.
I immediately recognized the marshmallows on display. I had seen them when I went to visit an incubator in Astoria, Queens about a year ago and again at The LIC Flea where we had a tent this summer. The marshmallows were provided by MitchMallows. Their treats have the most eye popping colors and wacky flavors like Pretzels & Beer, Churros Mallows, Ginger Wasabi and Merlot Mallows. I know I'm a fan.
With twinkly lights everywhere...
and a romantic chandelier...
it was difficult not to get caught up in the moment.
Food was provided by Cloud Nine Catering...
and this made-to-order mashed potato station was out of this world! What a fantastic idea. You can select either/or the mashed red bliss potatoes (left) or mashed sweet potatoes (on the right). Then come the delicious array of toppings: gravy, shredded cheddar cheese, mini marshmallows, sweet peas, warmed bacon bits, chive sour cream, and roasted garlic butter. Genius!
My other favorite part of the celebration was this VW which has been converted into a photo booth by
Elan Artists sent the most amazing DJ and live band to work the guests into a festive mood.
All three authors were kind enough to sign and personalize each guest's copy. I picked up two; one for our library and the other for our family.
Thanks again to Libby of Jubilee Events and of course the lovely writers of The White Dress for an enchanting and most inspiring evening.
