We knew we wanted this year’s annual Tassels & Tastemakers LA event to be bigger and better than ever. We invited guests from the wedding, wellness and lifestyle industries. It’s always a treat to bring industry pros, influencers and media together to network, enjoy yummy bites, sip on refreshing cocktails, and get down on the dance floor!

The Design

We decided to welcome our guests to paradise this year with a Moroccan Oasis theme. The event was filled with picture-perfect moments at every turn. We were thrilled to host the event at a brand new event space, The Revery LA! Tassels & Tastemakers was the first-ever event at The Revery. The blank slate space couldn’t have been more perfect! The event was so warm and inviting ith neutrals, greenery, light pinks, natural texture, and pops of Moroccan-inspired color palettes.

To further tie in the theme, Bloominous wowed guests with their amazing floral installations and insane dried palm leaf-filled photo backdrop moment. Guests were able to take all of the Instagram content! Amber Event Productions lit up the space with their amazing custom Moroccan hanging lanterns. They also created a VIP lounge using stunning drapery complimented by rope.

The Party

We wanted to have signage and details throughout the event that were “punny” and on theme. So, we had Prim and Pixie get creative with sayings like “hot and not bothered” and “tropic like it’s hot” (which was perfect on the dance floor). Elevated Pulse got the party started with their talented violinist who played alongside the DJ with today’s hottest songs! The electric violin added such a unique element and the guests totally enjoyed it.

We also set up fun and unique guest activations at the event for everyone to enjoy. Veiled Vanity Artistry created a “braid bar” where guests could get trendy braids. The Wild Posy kept guests cool in the July heat with wine poured over colorful popsicles. BOXFOX sponsored our VIP gifting suite where media, influencer, and VIP guests could take home custom-made swag boxes with some of our favorite beauty and lifestyle products. 31 Bits also provided our VIP guests with the chicest lounge entry bracelets we have ever seen at check-in! The event was filled with delicious and savory bites from Colette’s Catering. It included a “breadbasket” chair and a Moroccan bazaar-inspired grazing station inside the lounge. Colette’s Catering also provided custom on-theme cocktails that were served alongside the cutest cans of BABE sparkling wine.

Kinada Events came through with the coolest balloon installation that nailed our event color palette to perfection. Plus… Is it really even a party if there are no balloons?! We loved seeing our guests in the confetti-filled Smilebooth photo booth area laughing and taking home memories. As always, we are truly grateful for our amazing photographer Angelica Marie Photo, and videographer Milestones of Love. They truly captured all of the magic that took place at Tassels and Tastemakers LA 2019. Hope to see you at the next one 😉
