Set Your Table Tool + Event Recap

Here’s a little recap of the May 7th Bridal Registry event at Bloomingdales San Francisco that I participated in with Michelle Prelli from Brides.com and Christy Weber from What Junebug Loves (both fabulous women, BTW!). The crew from Bloomingdales (pictured below) was quite warm & welcoming as well…

The main purpose of the event was to introduce brides-to-be and engaged couples to the new Set Your Table tool on Brides.com, which basically allows you to mix & match china patterns and tabletop elements online to come up with your own favorite look…. while in the most comfortable setting possible – like at home in your PJ’s! {Pictured below, from left: Michelle, Christy, and me during the bridal registry discussion.}

For those of you that have seen the movie Clueless, the Set Your Table tool reminds me of (a more sophisticated version of) the “outfit matchmaker” program that Cher had for that all-important task of figuring out the perfect ensemble to wear when you’re a sophomore in high school! Here’s a screenshot…

In addition to the Set Your Table demonstration & general registry tips discussion, lots of great SF-based wedding vendors set up tables and chatted with guests…

Le Crueset and Hello Lucky were there with their gorgeous products. (It was fun to see Hello Lucky’s letterpress drink coasters (below) because they always remind me of this lovely Retro Chic bridal shower created by one of our readers and featured here at HWTM!)

Being a certified sweet tooth, I especially enjoyed the tastings going on at the Cakework table… delicious!  Also loved their cute purse-shaped cakes…

Guests that attended the event were also treated to small bites and champagne. The acrylic serving pieces were fantastic – especially the “towers”. (Yes – that IS salmon-on-a-stick…makes for easy eating with one hand!)
