I love the idea of these gingerspoons by product designer Matilda Sunden Rigner. These would be perfectly delightful with coffee or served as a hand held dessert.
Oddly enough, I’ve come across Matilda’s products twice in the past 24 hours. I also love her Rainman decanter. Stunning!
For the launch of their new perfume, Eau première, Chanel partnered with famed designer Jean-Marc Gady – who has developed notoriety through projects with Louis Vuitton, Baccarat and Apple (oh, and let’s not forget his stunning Moet & Chandon bucket design…but I digress).
Jean-Marc transformed a Parisian apartment into a storybook of rooms. Guests were invited to explore the pages of the apartment as the event unfolded to uncover experiences related to the perfume…fragrant waterfalls, chanel model projections and bottle shaped doorways were just a few of the concepts that made this event Chanel-worthy.
I came across this product online – and, a very quick google search for “liquid latex paint” will net you many, many more results. Rainbow Skin could be a fantastic alternative for entertainers currently using other forms of body paints. The benefits? Spread on and peel off. No more hours of scrubbing your skin in the shower. Just make sure you’re not alergic to latex by doing a skin test first!
Volute is a high quality, Bordeaux AOC certified line of wines…with a twist. Unlike traditional wine bottles that require someone to pour the wine, wine bottle openers, wine bottles and a variety and quantity of wine glasses, Volute is contained in a single-serve, eco-friendly, shatter-proof aluminum bottle. A mouthful, I know. But the idea is simple: Give people the ability to enjoy a great tasting wine, without the hassle, virtually anywhere.
I love all of the potential uses for this product – outdoor weddings, company picnics, sporting events…anywhere where portability, safety and minimal prep-work is of value.
A case of 24 is $94 USD – and you can buy as a variety pack or as individual packs of either Bordeaux Red, White or Rosé. Click here to order.
E! has announced the brand spankin’ new show Party Monsters: Cabo. A sneek peak of the show is set to air on November 30th at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT (just after the season 2 premiere of Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood – and yes, I feel silly just writing that). The concept is a competition that will see 9 event planners compete against one another to throw a fabulous shindig for Hollywood celebrities on the Mexican Riviera.
“Among the celebrities appearing on “Party Monsters: Cabo” will be P. Diddy, Carmen Electra, Brody Jenner and Lil Jon. Michele Merkin, meanwhile—who formerly hosted ABC’s “The Next Best Thing”—will serve as the show’s host, as well as a member of its judging panel, which also includes “in-house expert” Brian Worely and a weekly celebrity guest.”
The winner will earn the title of “celebrity event planner” with the LG Villa Cabo resort. In typical reality-tv fashion, the losers are sure to be humiliated.
The show will air on December 12th at 10 p.m. ET/PT on E! channel.
Aubrey Blankenship of Event Solutions interviewed me a few months back to ask how Etsy can make an impact in the events world. “Oooh, ooh – where do I begin…”. I gushed about Etsy. It was embarrassing, really. I mean, Etsy has pretty much satiated my appetite for all things unique and handmade and brought the joy of late night shopping to the comfort of my home.
Since my big day I have been guiltily lurking on this site for…well…anything and everything. Here are just a few of my favorite ‘eventy’ things:
This shabby chic wreath by VictorianPetals is a mere $10!
Goodness me. Just look at this pretty sugar and creamer set by justmare for $45.
Good enough to eat, these decadent chocolate cake SOAPS by morganstreet are a mouth watering $5.50.
Gorgeous paper fancy (worn on a lapel, a purse, a bouquet) by lalalaurie for $25.
Chalk cloth centerpiece by modernjune for just $7. Wouldn’t this be great on a buffet table to describe meal selections?
