2012 Summer Collection VIP Party Wrap Up

Howdy, friends! It's been such an exciting couple of weeks for us here in Charm City. Our Summer 2012 Collection was unveiled at an exclusive VIP reception at our studio on March 22nd and the party was a huge success!

First and foremost, we must thank the lovely and talented Astrid of Astrid Photography for all the amazing party photos! Her work is gorgeous and if you're looking for an event photographer that can make your guests and event shine, she is it. Unless noted, all photos below were snapped by her. She is as graceful and fabulous as her photos are.

We worked all day to transform the bakery into a gallery space that would make our guests feel warm and welcome. Before the party started our entire staff gathered for a rare well-dressed full group shot:

The gorgeous floral arrangements (as seen below next to Mary Smith's sweet elephant cake) were generously provided by our dear friend Jeanne at Blue Sage Floral - she did a perfect job accenting our event decor and many of the arrangements are still going strong, two weeks later!

The space was really turned around. We couldn't believe how dramatic the transformation was:

Our new, custom built center table was forged by hand by our intrepid delivery professional, Emmanuel. Normally it's our central shared workspace, but for the party it served as the "runway" for our cake collection:

Our Artistic Director, Katie Rose, was the captain at the helm of this event - the Summer 2012 Collection was her brainchild and here she is (clearly beaming with pride) with Emmanuel:

A great wide shot of the whole shebang:

Our guests oohed and aahed over the cakes:

The real stars of the night were the cakes! This ivory and white design was created by Lauren:

Guests were treated to innovative and fresh herbal cocktails mixed and served by Ashley North Compton.

Our Summer 2012 Collection was inspired by Carmen Miranda, Frida Kahlo, and many other images, textures, prints and fashions. We put up our inspirations boards for the guests to see:

The absolutley exquisite cuisine was prepared by Patchwork Catering - a Baltimore Catering company that focuses on keeping their food fresh, local, and sustainable. It was truly perfect.

Duff can't control his love for Elizabeth Bailey, one of our most favorite event planners:

All in all the event was a huge success and we are now looking foward to the next collection!
