Suggestions For Throwing a Sip & See: Townes’ Winter Wonderland Occasion

Properly properly properly. Higher late than by no means, I at all times say. Really it’s fairly becoming that we’re virtually a yr to this point with regards to posting about Townes’ Sip & See. As you’ll see, it was very winter wonderland vibes, so actually, we’re simply in time for the vacation season. That is the proper submit for you should you’re pondering of throwing any vacation or Christmas events. And should you’re within the San Diego space, I extremely advocate working with any or the entire distributors who helped us pull this collectively. Let’s get on with it.

Michael & I (and the children and canine) spent the vacations in San Diego final yr and we determined to throw somewhat Sip & See vacation get together for Townes- I imply, he’s the cutest little ham and I used to be so excited to introduce him to my closest associates & household. So, similar to Zaza’s Pineapple Soirée, I wish to break down each element for you, and right here they’re. 


♡  decide a theme.

In my view, should you begin with a theme, issues come collectively somewhat simpler & find yourself being extra cohesive, lol – after all. To be completely clear I flip flopped somewhat with this, it went from circus, to Whoville, to winter wonderland and ended up taking a bit from each class AND I LOVED IT. My imaginative and prescient was white, snowballs, first, puffy, clouds, with a pop of robin’s egg blue. Particular, however what else is new?

When you decide your theme, the invites are the proper strategy to give your company a style of the get together. Working with Cindy from Bliss & Bone once more was a no brainer. You guys know by now she has executed a lot for us: marriage ceremony invites, child bathe invites, Zaza’s delivery announcement, Zaza’s birthday invitations. She’s unbelievable. She’s so inventive, understands how necessary particulars are are ALWAYS crushes it.

We went with a pinstripe & gold invite and a extremely cool font that simply jogs my memory of the Nineteen Forties? Kinda? Anyway, as you possibly can see, it’s all concerning the particulars from the prime quality card inventory, the envelope liner and the wax seal. And sure, sure, solely I, Lauryn Bosstick, would put the unsuitable yr on my son’s get together invites. What are you able to do? LOL.

Like I mentioned, the invite actually units the tone of the get together and if you need an elevated invitation Bliss & Bone is your reply. Additionally they do evites & significantly the entire scenario is so streamlined & simple. Can’t advocate Cindy and her staff sufficient.

♡ decor that doubles as an exercise.

Among the highlights of this get together had been the interactive ‘stations’ that everybody might go to. So we had a scorching chocolate bar (however like, boozy for the adults), a gingerbread constructing station, and beignet station the place you would get them organized and watch them get made proper there. Evidently they had been past scrumptious.

These little stations are such a good suggestion as a result of it provides your company one thing to do, and the children had SO MUCH FUN with it too.

♡ get together favors

It’s at all times good to have somewhat one thing to your company to take house to recollect the occasion. 

+ @tajacollection stylish, white snowflake candles:

Taja is the most effective firm to make use of for customized candles. I’ve them throughout my home, I like to present them as items, & for Zaza’s birthday we did a pineapple etched sq. base in type of a frosted white. For Townes we did a frosted white with snowflake etched on it. The scent was vanilla and to say its mouthwatering is an understatement.

All Taja candles are hand-poured with soy wax & no phthalates, parabens or artificial dyes. Been an enormous fan for years so I used to be so completely happy to have these customized pineapple candles at Zaza’s get together. 

+ @beekeepers_naturals brain fuel: 

I take Beekeeper’s Naturals mind gas virtually day by day. It’s like liquid adderall. Child events might be A LOT, so it was enjoyable to have Beekeeper’s merchandise for the adults. The founder has been on the podcast & let me simply say, the throat spray is like magic.

♡ location.

HUGE shout out to my associates Gillian and Mauricio who personal Wolfie’s Carousel Bar. They went above and past & had been so accommodating. They cared about each single element, made certain I used to be concerned the entire means and opened up the venue so we might have an unbelievable, intimate get together with household and associates.

When you haven’t heard of Wolfie’s it’s actually an previous carousel. When you’re within the San Diego space it’s a MUST. They’ve the most effective cocktails & meals and don’t get me began on the employees. They’re so good at their jobs & even dressed up like Whoville characters for the get together. It was out of this world and tied the entire theme collectively from the second the company walked within the door.

We selected a household model menu with seafood towers, pomme frites with garlic aioli (to die for), Waygu beef sliders, French toast & beignets. They even did a customized drink menu with the cleverest cocktails: La la Land, Zaza’s Toy Field, Townes in Toyland.

One other factor about Wolfie’s is that they labored so properly with Encore Events to streamline all the things. Not one single element went previous Brittany and the Encore staff. From establishing the new chocolate bar, the signage, the place settings, deliveries- it was all streamlined by Encore.

♡ fairly leases. 

Fancy Tables by Studio 22 offered essentially the most attractive desk settings. They had been all white however the chargers & appy & essential plates gave it this depth & texture. All of it slot in so seamlessly with the white balloons, white candles & white roses on the tables. The cutlery the offered was additionally tremendous ornate & virtually regarded classic which was a pleasant pop since all the things else was all white.

They actually have so many choices to select from and I’d be completely happy to work with them once more. Simply go stalk their IG & see for your self.

The decor- my god. The candles, the fluffy puff issues, the balloons. Bish Events did this attractive white balloon instalment on the ceiling. You guys. It was magical. Bish Occasions can be a go-to for me when doing any type of get together. They’re really easy to work with and once more, I like working with individuals who perceive the significance of particulars. They put balloons throughout the carousel, hanging from the ceiling of every desk & made the entire vibe so on level. It actually felt like a winter wonderland.

♡ meals & drinks.

As I discussed, Wolfie’s took care of the meals & drinks and it was all scrumptious and so kid-friendly. We additionally ordered customized cookies from @littlesparkscookies. Jess is so proficient and made white & robin’s egg blue cookies with a carousel horse that match the theme of the get together completely. She additionally did some white cloud cookies and everybody was obsessed- her cookies style so good.

Each get together wants a cake so Tara at Tara Heather Cake Design made us a customized banana cake. It was so good and never too candy, it was completely good in each means. Tremendous easy with some white snowballs that resembled the balloon decor. Tara went above and past and created an additional egg-free cake as a result of our niece has an allergy. This one was gentle pink with the identical white balls on it & they each regarded so fab sitting on the dessert desk.

There you may have it. The get together was a complete success and everybody had plenty of enjoyable (I believe, mommy obtained somewhat tipsy). It meant a lot to us that everybody took the time & effort to come back see Townes across the holidays, which everyone knows could be a batshit loopy time of yr.
