Babefest!

We’re back in action with the Hello Darling blog, diving into the past two years of Darling show-stoppers with a bigger, more beautiful format that we can’t wait to pack with pretty.

It only seems right to get this party started with what was one of the most fun, most fabulous, most stylish girl fêtes ever. Yes, ever. Every other bachelorette party we’ve seen has NOTHING on Chrissy’s fierce “Babefest”.

Inspired by a girly selection of pins from the bride-to-be’s sister (St. Louis planner Kate Turner of Kate & Co.) came to life in an itinerary that would make every girl want to get in formation. Complete with the absolute cream of the crop in vendors and venues, and pure girl power – this destination celebration weekend did not miss a beat.

When Chrissy, AKA “Queen Babe” and her squad entered the Infinity Suite of The Langham Hotel they immediately felt the fun vibe takeover. Our custom faux hide floral rug put a personal stamp on the entry as only one of many custom touches that we created around every turn.

We personalized and feminized the neutral and luxe living room, covering the coffee table with a coordinating colorful pink ranunculus photo wrap, topped by a glam boho bouquet and framed the city views and chic décor with colorful balloons and knock-out blooms.

The master suite was a total dream catcher from head to toe. We added a residential touch with festive femme pillows and a cozy throw, paper pompoms and garlands, “QUEEN BABE” lettering, and an overflowing champagne bubble flamingo bath.

As if the penthouse suite wasn’t setting up these girls for enough fun…these lucky ladies hopped over to one of our favorite Chicago spots, Cindy’s at CAA. Their private dinner and tasting was styled in an upscale boho vibe with added pops of more saturated color. The long table was decked out by a gorgeous runner of candlelight and florals with groupings of our vintage brass candlesticks, geometric vessels filled with earthy chic bouquets, geometric objects, gold painted pineapples, and loose blooms. The table was set with our vintage brass chargers, our HD Heirloom colorful glass trios, gold flatware, and our hand dip-dyed custom monogrammed napkins to direct the ladies to their seats. We lit the walls in a warm blushy glow and surrounded the tables by chic white Cipher “O” Chairs to elevate this soiree to another level.

The weekend continued the next day as the ladies got glammed up and hopped into the HD styled limo to ride off to Beyonce, head wreaths atop their tresses and sass in their steps only to return to this decadent golden Elysia Root cake, topped with fresh florals on our lucite stand, ending this weekend on a sweet note!
