NYC Tassels and Tastemakers Event

One things for sure, Be Inspired PR knows how to throw a party! With the help of Gianna SanFilippo of Chic Celebrations, this year’s NYC Tassels and Tastemakers Event was a knockout! (Check out previous parties here and here!) Taking place during bridal fashion week, the event showcases favorite and new & noteworthy brands, registries, and products to wedding industry media and vendors. Not to mention, it is a fun break from a busy schedule to network, lounge, and have a cocktail, of course!

From Be Inspired PR…
Every year during Bridal Fashion Week, we bring our big networking party, Tassels and Tastemakers, to the big apple! This exclusive event brings the movers and shakers of the event industry altogether for a fun night of networking, cocktails and picture-perfect moments!
 

This year, we decided to bring an exciting addition to the event! We had top brands in the wedding and lifestyle space give a first-look of their new collections and products to editors, influencers, and top industry pros! Be sure to check out the photos of all of the booths including Bed Bath and Beyond’s wedding + home registry and ‘Bachelor’ Alum Desiree Hartsock’s new bridal line!

Desiree Hartsock showed off her brand new line of bridal gowns – stunning!!


Can you believe these flowers are silk? We were in love with Something Borrowed Blooms booth!

We already love Bed Bath & Beyond, but their easy and accessible registry full of all the products you could ever want or need makes us love them even more! They set up a beautiful booth showcasing some of their amazing registry items.

This event would not be possible without the brilliant design direction of Gianna SanFilippo of Chic Celebrations. She warmed up this chic white space with beautiful blues, greens and natural texture. Even though every booth added their own personal design flair, Gianna managed to keep the space looking cohesive and modern!
Gianna says, The event space at 404 is a clean, fresh and vibrant space. White walls and glass panels make it a blank canvas for design (praise hands!!!). This year’s Tassels featured a Bridal Market Showcase for media, bloggers and editors followed by a cocktail party for industry influencers and pros. What a turnout! Alicia King Photography was there to capture all of the fun!
 

We wanted to warm the space up with wood and iron tables and bars from Party Rental Ltd. and wild and whimsy green arrangements of different shapes and sizes by none other than Mixed Greens Event Design. Each vendor had a warm welcoming space and was on display throughout both back-to-back events.

Azazie some of their bridal and bridesmaids collections, while guests could chat with the designer!
 

These handkerchiefs from The Handkerchief Shop are the perfect wedding party, family, or bride & groom gifts!

The ultimate wedding planning resource, Partyslate was the life of the party!
Thirsty Nest showed off some of the items wine lovers can register for on its site!

We love these beautiful handmade pieces from Bare and Me!

These keepsake boxes from Savor are perfect for future brides & newlyweds!
 
Eliza Gwendalyn was there doing live digital sketches of the guests. It was so fun to watch and such a cool digital takeaway for everyone there. Murrays Cheese kept everyone full with an amazing spread of meats, cheeses, charcuterie, and seasonal sweets like fruit tartlets and apple crumble bars. The parmesan puffs were by far the biggest hit and went perfectly with the OneHope Chardonnay and Champagne that was poured all night! Thanks to For Your Party, our bar was complete with adorable custom cocktail napkins and stir sticks.
 
Three words – Boozey Ice Cream! Tipsy Scoop was there serving a variety of spiked ice creams and sorbets. Music from Jarrell Entertainment kept the mood lively and upbeat, and who doesn’t love some good photobooth shenanigans?!

How fun are all these party goods from For Your Party?! They literally have everything you need!
  
We had such a great turnout! Saw some familiar faces and made some new friends. Looking forward to next year!
