Swanky NYC BlogHer 2010
(slideshow all the way at the bottom)
My first time attending BlogHer 2010 and I get the wild idea to throw a party, I guess I fiqured why not paint the town Pink! The penthouse suite at The London is nothing short of spectacular and from the moment I set foot into the suite I knew everything was going to be Fantastic! (I must have said “fantastic” 899 times that night) The views of New York City from the 53rd and 54th Floor were breathtaking, yup the penthouse was 2 levels. I was even lucky enough to spend the night and wake up to an incredible view of Central Park. Okay but what about the party…
Ciao Bella Gelato wheeled in their bright pink cart fully stocked with TDF flavors and served them to guests in some very swanky, branded martini glasses. Naturally! Deborah the VP of marketing brought along some professional gelato scoopers and mingled with all the swanky bloggers. Ciao Bella brought in 100 bags o’ swag for everyone to take home and we raffled off a Gelato Machine, 4 pints of Gelato and The Book of Gelato and Sorbet. The lucky winner was Julie from JustPrecious
Cocktails were provided by X-Rated Fusion Liqueur and the 3 signature cocktails of the night were; The Sassy Sipper, The Swanky Mix and Tickled Pink. My favorite was Tickled Pink! One guest said “These are the best cocktails I’ve had at Blogher” and I think most of us would have to agree!
Besides enticing all these fabulous bloggers to come to the event, I felt like I had to bring something to the party so check out the Savvy Sassy Water – they’re so darn cute! I was so excited to find bottleyourbrand.com Be Savvy. Be Sassy. Stay Hydrated!
I thought I was going to have to chain down the Daily Silver Handbag from Ecoist – the larger version of this bag, The Mega Silver was featured in Sex & the City 2, carried by Samantha. The Ecoist Daily Silver went to Cheryl of Mommy_Pants The next day Cheryl received many dirty looks, jealous stares and some threatening tweets. Everyone wants that bag!
zulily made a beautiful centerpiece of merchandise and the typical brands they carry on the Daily Deal shopping website. Guests were able to talk with the Amy, the marketing manager and get the inside scoop of what is happening over at zulily. Everyone was given a zulily gift card and Amy also gave away a $100 Credit to zulily.com which went to KariEllen Happy Shopping!
The Best part of the night? The energy I felt from 100 intelligent, creative, funny, gorgeous, influential, savvy, kind, fashionable, friendly, energetic, successful and talented women. The night played out just as I had imagined it in my mind a thousand times. I set out to create an event that was little bit different from the rest, I wanted Ciao Bella Gelato, zulily and all those that attended to authenitically connect with the each other in a warm but swanky atmosphere and I believe my mission was accomplished!
Thanks for coming to Swanky NYC and you can bet your Savvy Sassy pants there will be a Swanky LA!
