If I wasn’t already in the mood for holiday shopping, I definitely am now. Last week my company Flora Nuit partnered with Yummie by Heather Thomson and Portobello Road Gin for a fun little event at The Farm in Soho. Guests shopped new loungewear from Yummie (which is what I’ll be wearing all Fall and Winter) and sipped custom cocktails from Portobello Road Gin, including a Concorde Grape Punch (recipes below) that are perfect for all holiday parties this year.
provided the beautiful bouquets. (AWESOME DEAL ALERT
: Save $7 on your first bouquet with the code FloraNuit7.) The delicious (and healthy!) munchies were from Ox Verte
, and Rituals
provided the candles and lots of luxe goodies for the gift bags. Dick Taylor Chocolate
sent over yummy treats as well and, as self-proclaimed chocolate connoisseurs, we can say with complete confidence that the Black Fig is AH-mazing.
