Today I am sharing pictures from the Rooftop Recharge Blogger Brunch I hosted with my two blogger friends, Amanda and Lauren in NYC. This time last year, Lauren and I started to brainstorm about possibly putting together a fun event for our blogger friends. I absolutely love attending the shows and presentations during NYFW, but it is also incredibly important to me to catch up with my blogger gal pals as well as meet new faces. When I went to Dallas in July, I had dinner with my friend Amanda and brought up the idea to her! She also had a similar idea so we put our three brains together and put together a fun blogger brunch during NYFW!
The beautiful Sanctuary Hotel hosted us at their rooftop restaurant, the Haven. The view was absolutely breathtaking and the food was downright delicious (the ahi tuna wontons were my favorite.) We sipped on mimosas and rose sangria while resting our feet before the busy day ahead. I was in charge of the decor and I based the color scheme around the cute grey and burgundy backpacks Henri Bendel gifted each girl. I made flower embellished fans that doubled as place settings with each girl’s name on them. I also found the cutest gold and white NYC skyline coasters at H&M! The florist, New York Plaza Florist, I found was located across the street from the hotel and they put together the most gorgeous lily and hydrangea centerpieces for the table. I was thrilled with the outcome!
We could not have had asked better weather or better company for our brunch. If you are looking for new faces to follow on instagram, you should check out these gorgeous girls below!
