The day Hamptons Home turned three this October, we celebrated with a High Tea party at the Brisbane Marriot Hotel with a great turnout of 50 guests.
As many of the attendees were our customers, we were excited about thanking them for their support with our first styling workshop, gift bags with choice loot, and a cocktail demonstration.
Upon arrival, guests were treated to a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. Nothing like a chilled glass of bubbly to set people in the mood for the afternoon’s fun and camaraderie.
Each guest got more treats with a Hamptons Home gift bag filled with enviable loot that included a bottle of wine, our popular fringe cushion cover, a Maine Beach hand crème, samples from Skin Boss, and vouchers from Marriot Hotel. Quite the booty, which alone was worth almost as much as the ticket price!
Our Pamper Station enticed people to sample our luxe body care range from Maine Beach.
Our indefatigable and charming host, Kirsten Smith, kicked off the afternoon with her usual brand of enthusiasm and wit.
The afternoon’s events couldn’t have gone smoothly without her hosting help. Thank you, Kirsten!
One of our party segments was our first mini styling workshop. We asked Susanna Tolo of the popular Instagram page, @coastalhamptonstyle, to give an inspirational demo on how to style pocket areas of your home, the Hamptons way.
For this workshop, Susanna chose to share her tips on how to style a coffee table in line with the Spring and Summer seasons.
A first styling workshop for us and a first demo stint for Susanna. She was super nervous, but she did very well!
Meanwhile, guests munched on scrumptious finger sandwiches and pretty petits fours.
Our High Tea Party was capped off by the Bartender’s Demo, compliments of the Marriot Hotel. Two lucky birthday gals got free cocktails from the barman.
Watch for our next blog post for the full recipe of the special drink.
Overall, the afternoon was rated a success with excellent attendance scores and a number of positive feedback.
Nothing is perfect, though. This party has taught us where and how we may improve on our next event. Based on constructive feedback, next time will certainly see a more stylized version.
Thank you so much to all of you have come to our party and supported us these three years. We hope to see you all again in future events.
