We had a great turn out for our Summer tasting at The Landing in U Village. What a beautiful space! We were thrilled to work with Rasa and Erika of PlanningSavvy.com to bring this fun event together. We chose a light color palette to contrast with the industrial romantic feel of the space and it worked really well! The venue has gorgeous windows with flowy drapes that let in a lot of light and really open up the space. Eleanor with Bash and Bloom created the most exquisite floral pieces that fit just right and tied everything together! Wine World and Spirits poured some wonderful wines to pair with the menu and Carla from Honey Crumb Cake Studio made some delicious treats to share along with having a live cake decorating station where she frosted and put together a fabulous cakes topped with one of her signature sugar flowers. Ashley Webster played some beautiful music throughout the night and AA Party Rentals provided all of the lovely linens and other equipment.
