This week we hosted a press brunch in New York City to let the media know about all of the new Minted Weddings happenings this spring. The inspiration starting point for the brunch was Moglea‘s ‘Matthiola’ invitation and party decor. Read on for some more creative inspiration for whatever fête you have coming this spring and say good-bye to winter and hello to happy melon colors!
I think it’s always nice to have a visual clue that let’s guests know they’ve arrived! This sign, which matched the invitations invitees received in their mailbox, was hanging in the door of The Little Owl, the Venue in the Village where we hosted the event.
Jenny Batt, from Hank+Hunt and also a Julep contributor, made the awesome metallic fringe ‘Minted’ letters and the paper mobiles.
The flowers were by Maggie B. Hollingsworth of The Little Owl.
She used lots of succulents and Juliet roses, which are situated perfectly between the rose and peony.
We showed off our new scalloped circle shape in the menu card. Barbara Callow did the calligraphy.
Our cute party decor flags on the french toast apps and the signature mocktail were a fun touch!
The cake was by Sugar Flower Cake Shop — don’t those sugar flowers look amazing? They coordinated perfectly with the arrangements. It’s a good idea to make sure the florist and the cake artist are sharing ideas!
Kristie Kern, the winner of our last wedding invitation challenge, was our guest of honor, flown in from Akron, Ohio. Here she is with her winning design Botanical Blooms and flanked by Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings to her left, Mariam Naficy our founder to her right and at far right Cassidy Iwerson of Martha Stewart Weddings.
The wall installation featured tissue fans, and paper medallions crafted by Jenny Batt. Minted will be launching party decor fans with our wedding decor line later this spring. Jenny sent over the folded fans and we assembled them on the ground in NYC with a combination of fishing line, double-sided tape, staples, a tall ladder and a lot of reaching and sweating!
By the way, grapefruit topped with sugar and either torched or put under the broiler and then topped with cottage cheese and a little mint is THE perfect way to start the day or maybe your weekend tomorrow morning?!
