On June 21st, Bestowe collaborated with blogging superstars 100 Layer Cake to launch their space and our exclusive “100 Layer Cake Bridesmaid” box. I’m so honored to have the ladies from 100 Layer Cake as part of my new venture into bridal party and wedding welcome boxes. I’ve known these girls for many, many years. Between design school, travels to Europe, and family connections, we have grown closer over time. Our years spent as friends and colleagues has inspired this collaboration that resulted in the most spectacular gift box, rightly named, The 100 Layer Cake Bridesmaid box.
On the morning of June 21st, I packed up my car with family and boxes upon boxes in order to showcase some of my most exciting bridal party and wedding welcome boxes at a cocktail party co-hosted with 100 Layer Cake in So Cal. I curated the wedding welcome boxes around each city where my clients are from in order to give them localized gifts for their attendees/guests. After filling my car to the brim, I drove to the beautiful event space., Festoon LA.
Festoon LA is an incredible, intimate event space and natural light photo studio located between Venice and Culver City in West LA. The space hopes to build community and inspire creativity through events, workshops, and photoshoots. After spending time there for this gorgeous event, I can assure you it does all that it aspires to do. The movable bar is super convenient, and the touches by the girls and Sarah Sherman Marshall, for her cabinets and design sensibility, make it perfect for any occasion. The space even includes a full kitchen which is essential for any event.
Overall, I had an exquisite time meeting some amazing influencers and women wedding planners in the LA community. When I began my journey into the wedding world, I was not sure how I would approach these inspiring designers and planners. This event has shown me how we take inspiration from one another, and being able to showcase my pre-curated bridal and wedding welcome boxes in such fashion was an amazing experience.
The night was filled with an ensemble to the best music, food, and drinks. We had an inspiring 3 piece-band from Dart Collective, delicious food from Room Forty, desserts from Shelia Mae , and wine from Scribe Winery. The Fantastic flowers throughout the venue were from Of the Flowers. Our photographer, the most amazing Scott Clark Photo, captured the evening with color and clarity. Finally, the lovely Eunice from Electric Eunice did calligraphy on the spot for each attendee making individual gift tags with their names. It was truly a fabulous affair.
