Wednesday was a pretty fun day. Not only was it my son Finnley's 1st birthday and my nephew's high school graduation, but I also had a chance to sit down with some of D.C.'s top planners to decorate cookies!
The event was hosted by Meredith Tomason the owner of RareSweets Bakery as a way of promoting that they are moving into the wedding cake and cookie market.
Elaine Mazanec of Savor PR was in charge of promoting the event and helping to curate the guest list. She did a pretty fantastic job considering Amy Moeller, the new editor of Washingtonian Bride and Groom, was there!
Side note, I had this vision that all editors were mean like Meryl Streep's character in The Devil Wears Prada, but Amy might have been one of the nicest, most down to Earth people ever - even when I asked her awkward questions, as is my tendency.
Meredith has a tight crew at RareSweets and Sous Chef Alexandra Cheppa gave us a fantastic demonstration on how to make those perfect decorative cookies. Turns out Alex is recently engaged, hmm, I wonder if she has a planner or florist ;)
I wanted to make sure that each guest knew they were invited to take an arrangement with them so I called up my 'friendors' Lauren and Kathryn of Artisan Matchmaker to see if they could help me out. In no time at all, they were able to make and deliver customized die cuts with each guest's name on them!
