Erin Fetherston and Cosabella Party – Pt. 1Posted on April 2, 2014
Last night I curated a party for the Erin Fetherston and Cosabella collection launch that included a DIY flower crown bar, adorable vintage decor, delicious treats, a pop-up shop for the ERIN by Erin Fetherston collection, and a bunch of amazing ladies making flower crowns. It was pretty much the best party ever.
[There will be more photos coming later this week, along with a look at the illustrated DIY I created for the event.]
For a couple weeks leading up to the event, I scavenged thrifts and second-hand stores to collect the flowers. I found a bunch of unique vintage flowers, which I washed and arranged with an assortment of new craft-store purchased silk stems. Together, the selection was absolutely gorgeous. Here’s a few photos of the flowers I took at home before the event.
For the party, which was held at the Cosabella store in soho, I styled the crafting table with the flowers, some vintage glass and my 1920s hand mirror, along with a bunch of adorable vintage decor that was rented from Little Vintage Rentals.
I made a few other pieces for the event, including a ribbon and fabric photo booth backdrop, a chalkboard welcome sign, and a buttercream rose chocolate cake. Along with the vintage rental pieces, the store was transformed into a whimsical secret garden-esque craft haven. It was beyond dreamy!
The cake I made was put on the dessert/drink table with an assortment of delicious macarons from Dana’s Bakery which were by far the best macarons I have ever had. Just thinking about them makes me hungry for more, which is frightening considering how many I ate last night! Thanks to Kate Neal (of Kate Neal Photo) for capturing these photos of the drinks and dessert!
For the making of the floral crowns I was there to assist, but this particular batch of ladies were all so creative and crafty that they didn’t need much help. Everyone got super into the craft zone (which was amazing). I mean, seriously…best party. EVER.
How pretty are these ladies with their crowns?! They were all so unique! Such a creative (and super beautiful) group of ladies!
