A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of receiving an exclusive invitation to attend a midday soiree hosted by B Floral. As usual, upon receiving this invitation I enlisted the company of my talented friends to play hooky on their afternoon plans and join me. Fellow planner and friend, Viva of Viva Max Weddings, and Jaine of Brklyn View Photography accompanied me to B Floral’s afternoon flower arrangement tutorial networking event. We were fortunate enough to see some familiar faces like my friend Fallon of Fallon Carter Weddings. 91 Horatio was the perfect warm and intimate home for the event, decorated in displays by B Floral, where everyone ventured on their midday break for a few fun hours of mingling, munchies, and manhandling flowers! It was a room full of planners, photographers, industry media, bloggers and more, who got to play floral designer for an afternoon, creating our own floral arrangements in the company of like-minded creative individuals. The tutorial was led by Bronwen Smith, the founder and head designer of B Floral. She demonstrated how to create a simple, beautiful everyday flower arrangement using a variety of flowers in a wide range of bold colors. With Bronwen’s helpful tips and tricks for floral upkeep, my floral arrangement beautifully accented my living space far beyond its standard lifeline!
But what’s a party without tasty treats and libations!? Guests were served delectable mini edibles courtesy of JPO Concepts, from mini sliders and milkshake shooters to mini tacos, and butternut squash risotto. We washed down the fabulous food with “The B Sparkler,” the signature cocktail specifically concocted for this creative gathering.
The whole event was beautifully documented by the uberly talented Christopher Duggan. Below I’ve shared a selection of photos that Christopher captured to showcase what a wonderful experience the midday soiree was!
