We were very excited to collaborate with White Dress by the Shore and Stonington Design + Paperie for a special book signing reception on March 21st.
Acclaimed author and event designer Michelle Rago's new book, Signature Weddings, was featured as the beginning of an ongoing event , "Be Engaged - a series of conversations with wedding experts," hosted by The White Dress by the Shore. The kick-off event was attended by vendors and event planners from Connecticut to New York.
To really WOW everyone, we put our creative heads together and put our thinking caps on......which are made of food, of course! We literally made hats out of fresh produce for our staff to wear. It was a bit of trial and error...which was fun. (The kale looked like a hairstyle from the 70's!) Here are the three that made the cut: Radishes; Artichokes; and Key Limes.
We also thought outside of the box for the uniforms. A list of hors d'oeuvres was printed on the front of t-shirts and a little "Eat Me" button moved up and down to show what was being served.
We can't wait to enter this event in the 2009 CATIE Awards as part of the Best use of Food as Decor Category.
