Uproot Wine Brooklyn Launch Party

Table Setting by FashionableHostess.com

This past week I took my party planning skills to the next level. While I have hosted small events like Bridal Showers and 12 person Dinner Parties in the past, when asked by Uproot Wine if I could plan, cater, and decorate a sit down dinner party for 55 guests at a loft space in Brooklyn marking the launch of their new Social Club, TheBlock, I decided to step up to the plate.

Owned by a New York artist, the space had a lot of character {the vintage seats and couch pictured above were actually there prior!}, so I decided to continue with this rustic vibe for my tables. I found an amazing Vintage Furniture Rental company called Patina where I rented long wooden barn tables, wooden benches, and brass planter for my centerpieces. I took Open Weave Table Runners from Pottery Barn and laid them across the center of the tables which I then surrounded in various height candles and pine tree branches. Lastly, I headed to the Flower District for an array of succulents to fill my centerpieces {you probably saw me in action on my Instagram}.

On the night of the event it was time to get to work. I started by walking the the waitstaff through the itinerary of the night, assigning bar tenders and servers. The night began with an hour and a half cocktail hour with passed hors d’oeuvres and then transitioned into a sit down dinner compliments of prestigious chef of Kitchen Surfing, Chris Lynch.

The dinner party menu {which was to die for – yes, I tasted everything!} included Braised Short Ribs, Charred Brussel Sprouts, Glazed Carrots, and Oven Roasted Market Mushrooms. We were a tad understaffed {woops!} so even I had to get to work plating dinners and serving guests.

All-in-all the evening was an absolute success. The decor was stunning, the guests thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, food, and most importantly the Uproot wine, and I think my dress {The Miller Dress by Leona Collection} was the perfect compliment to the boho dinner party theme. Looks like large parties may be my calling after all!
