While there’s less to talk about after the fabulous cocktail party because a lot of it relates to the conference itself which is confidential, I figured I’d give you some quick highlights that I can share. Before I do go on, I want to thank WEtv, Design Cuisine, Smock, and Melangerie, all of whom were sponsors of the conference itself and made everything I learned possible.
After an incredibly informative morning,we broke for lunch and we were surprised with one of the most gorgeously presented boxed lunches I’ve ever seen. The rigid boxes, provided by Smock, were beautifully patterned. Design Cuisine provided the incredibly tasty lunch inside that was perfectly packaged with bamboo utensils and lovely linen napkins that we were all afraid to use.
Before leaving on Sunday, Williams-Sonoma was kind enough to invite us to a brunch and demo at their local store. We were all swooning over this OXO herb mincer – not to mention, of course, the fancy cookware, but apparently we all like fun toys.
This ends my quick recap of the second half of the B List. I can’t wait for next year!
