Summer is the perfect time to throw parties, or as the French will call it – soirees. The Art of La Soiree with Dannijo X Cointreau event was an elegant affair to get inspired on how to throw a beautiful cocktail party!
Who would know style better than Danielle and Jodie Snyder – the sisters behind the trendy jewelry label “Dannijo” themselves? Their jewelry is sold on Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman among several high end stores. Celebrities such as Rihanna, Beyonce and Kendall Jenner are also fans of their jewelry line.
Just as exquisite as their fashion label, their event definitely set the bar onto how to add a touch of glamour to hosting a party. Cointreau – the famous French liqueur brand also provided special cocktails and recipes for us to try. We even got to mix our own signature drink with our preferred ingredients at the bar. Cointreau has a sweet, orange flavor which tastes great when it’s mixed with fruit juices or even muddled together with fresh berries, citrus and herbs. It does make it the perfect drink for summer!
I really loved how beautiful and grand the whole place looked. There were harpists playing melodious music along with the DJ. Arches of real orange branches decorated the ceiling, Dannijo’s latest pieces of jewelry adorned statues of greenery and there were crystals, flowers and candles everywhere.
We also were invited to sit down to have dinner at an opulent dining table that was absolutely breathtaking. French lavender was the inspiration behind it so was laden with violet goblets, amethyst crystals and floral arrangements within glass prisms. To top it off, we were served with lavender lemonade mixed with the Cointreau. Did you know that the lavender flower is edible? It adds a lovely flavor to drinks and food. I just loved how it all the intricate details came together to present the color in such an elegant way. Lavender also happens to be one of my favorite flowers for its evocative scent and relaxing properties.
I absolutely adored everything about the event – from the stunning decor, amazing cocktails and delicate French food. I soaked up some wonderful ideas on how to throw a stunning party that will definitely be a hit this summer!
